I really enjoyed her performances as a film & TV actor, not so much as a TV dancer. Looks like being 71 in 2022 sucks. My brother passed earlier this year from cancer, too. 😞

/That said, has Scientology lost a major funding source?
 
2022-12-05 8:52:05 PM  
Very nice, Subby
 
2022-12-05 8:52:46 PM  
Wow. Very unexpected.  This was definitely kept very private.
 
2022-12-05 8:52:50 PM  
It's a shame that she spent her final years supporting Ol' Pussygrabber.

Miscavidge is bleeding their donors dry. I don't expect it to be around in a decade or so.

She was the uptight blonde, right?

She always struck me as a pretty terrible person. This just confirms my suspicions.

Similar: "Look Who's Not Talking Now". Great minds, yadda yadda.
Very sad nonetheless.

Fark cancer

She was a scientologist?

Bummer.
Enjoyed Cheers, Wrath of Khan and Summer School.

Assuming that she didn't sign one of those billion year so contracts - else she's still in the cult.

/All hail Xenu!

No, she was the catty brunette.

Subby, that was mean spirited, cruel, and we're all very proud of you.

My mom took me to see that when I was like six or so. For a long, long time, that's how I knew who she was. I must've been like 12 or something when I finally figured out who Bruce Willis was (let's be honest, almost all of Bruce's best work was R-rated).

yes and no
 
2022-12-05 8:55:48 PM  
Definitely an unexpected death. I'd like to say I'll remember her for her roles in movies and television. But her posts on twitter supporting Donnie Dingus, and her combative nature in defending his assholery to any and all comers on the platform some years back is probably more what I'll recall about her life.

One less Trump lover in the world is alright with me.

you and about 30 other people.

Cheers was exponentially better with her than that hack Shelly Long. Don't even get me started on Look Who's Talking unless you're looking to waste a couple of hours!
 
2022-12-05 8:57:00 PM  
What, "Look Who's Croaking" was beyond the pale for this website?

germ78: djkutch: She was the uptight blonde, right?

No, she was the catty brunette.


Also a deranged pageant-mom/sniper multi-class.

Great headline, submitter. 😂😂

Kirstie Alley defends, deletes criticized tweet on Russia-Ukraine conflict

"I don't know what's real or what is fake in this war." She added, "I'll pray instead."

Thank you. *wipes tear*

Cancer knows everybody's name
 
2022-12-05 8:58:28 PM  
Anyhoo, RIP funnylady. By the time I was old enough to 'get' Cheers and watch along with the parents, she had replaced Shelley Long, so Ted's love interest was always her to me.
 
2022-12-05 8:58:39 PM  
she was awesome in star trek

I grew up watching Moonlighting and then I saw what happenned when Cybil was traded in for Kirstie, who as you all know was fine. I don't care what any of you lunatics think.

I'll bet people were saying the same thing about the Catholic church around 1900 years ago.

I just finished watching the Star Trek retrospective "The Center Seat" and she was on it.

Weird.

Also, good to see you Mapes! Long time no see!

She's still real to me dammit.


Depending on the day/weather/astrology, I can't decide if Kim Cattrall would've been better in Wrath, or Kirstie would've been better in Undiscovered.

Resubmit as "Look whose not talking, too." give it a repeat tag.

Hopefully not too deep of a cut with this one.

Oh well. At least I had a good weekend in Vegas.

I wouldn't do either.

Her midichlorians have returned to the stars, to provide thetans to an untold number of rubes in the future.

She was lovely.

Then she was crazy.

Then she was mean.

Then she wasn't lovely.
 
2022-12-05 9:00:33 PM  
She was hot back in the day and I enjoyed her in Cheers and her movies, but she turned into a double-cook. Oh well.
 
2022-12-05 9:01:08 PM  
That voice, tho...one of the hottest I've ever heard.
