Transcript for 'Dancing With the Stars' Champion Kirstie Alley Sits Down With Barbara Walters
We don't want to waste one more minute for this big reveal from kirstie alley. She is opening up about all of her secret hollywood loves in her tell-all memoir, "the art of men." She sat down with barbara walters to talk about it. Take a look. ♪ Reporter: From "dancing with the stars." ♪ Reporter: To a high-profile years-long battle with weight. Kirstie alley is a woman who constantly reinvents herself. In her new book, "the art of men," she bears all, even reveals romances never talked about until now. She says she was in love with patrick swayze, even though she was married at the time to parker stevenson, of "hardy boys" fame. Kirstie met swayze on "north and south." You two fell in love. He wanted you to get divorced and marry him, for heavens sakes. We did fall in love with each other. Reporter: But you did not divorce parker for patrick swayze? I probably was more willing to break up my marriage than i was willing to break up his marriage. Reporter: Her secret romances did not end there. We've known each other And I'm already tired of you. Reporter: After her successful run on "cheers," kirstie signed on to do a movie with john travolta about a talking baby. I want to talk about another actor that you describe as the greatest love of your life, john travolta. John is the greatest love of my life. When I fell in love with john, when we were doing "look who's talking," believe me, it took everything that I had, inside, outside, to not run off and marry john. And be with john for the rest of my life. Reporter: Why didn't you do it? He was single. Because I feel like when you marry someone, you're supposed to work hard at it and you're supposed to make it work. Reporter: Kirstie and john never married. But they made two more hugely popular "look who's talking" movies together. This is a difficult question to ask. But as I talk to you, I can hear the viewers saying, you know, there's been these rumors that john travolta is gay. I love john travolta. I wish him only good things. How do you answer that? I know john with all my heart and soul. He's not gay. I think in some weird way in hollywood, if someone gets big enough and famous enough, and they're not out doing drugs and they're not womanizing, what do you say about them? I think people say that's the supreme insult, he's gay. Reporter: And this year, for the second time, she's competed on "dancing with the stars" all-star edition. Oh, my goodness. You're a mad woman. And I love you for it. Reporter: Before you were on "dancing with the stars," you said you were broken. I did feel broken. When I gained weight the first time, and then, I lost the weight, I mean, that was okay. I gained it once. I lost it. And then, I gained it again. And I thought, oh, lord. Is this going to be the pattern of the rest of my life? And that, right there, made me feel broken. Maybe there were people that wanted to have sex with me. But I didn't want to have sex with them in that condition.
