The world was surprised when Kirstie Alley named John Travolta as the greatest love of her life. In spite of her gushing confession, there’s no love lost between Kirstie and the Travoltas as John and Kirstie are set to work together in a new TV show.
It was over two decades ago when both actors starred in the popular show Look Who’s Talking. Their chemistry onscreen was so compelling that fans are excited by the announcement that they’ll be reunited for this upcoming television series.
Kirstie’s New Show
Kirstie’s New Show, the tentative title for the show, is a comedy series that will begin shooting in early August. Kirstie, now 62 years old, plays the lead character but will also serve as an executive producer.
She plays the role of Madison Banks, a woman whose life takes a new turn when a son she gave up suddenly reappears in her life. Travolta shows up later in the series. He plays a stagehand on Banks’ Broadway show. They have a one-night stand, which ends up with Travolta’s character wanting more. But Banks seems to be commitment phobic; evidenced by the fact that she gave up her son.
Kirstie made the exciting announcement of John’s involvement on Twitter. She tweeted ‘John Travolta is gonna be on our new show Kirstie!’ and said that she was extremely excited by the chance to work with him once again.
Travolta, apparently just as excited, expressed his own enthusiasm in a TV Land press release. He said that he was also excited to work with Kirstie along with the other talented cast of the show. The excitement is infectious, and fans are already lining up to get their subscription to Direct TV in order to catch the show on TV Land.
Kirstie and John’s History
After their first debut in Look Who’s Talking, the actors when on to make two sequels Look Who’s Talking Too and Look Who’s Talking Now! Last November Kirstie shocked the world when she revealed that she and Travolta fell in love during the filming of Look Who’s Talking in 1989. She went on to state that nothing happened since she ignored her feelings because she was married at the time. Travolta was at the time single. He met and married Kelly Preston a couple years later in 1991.
Over the years, Kirstie and John retained a close friendship due in part to their beliefs in Scientology.
In the lead up to the show’s premiere on December 4, Kirstie has been creating a lot of buzz with revelations about her life in her book The Art of Men. Her revelation about John Travolta is just one of many revelations. Apart from calling John the greatest love of her life, she tells of a secret romance with Patrick Swayze.
The actors developed a deep love and respect for one another during filming of the movie North and South. According to Alley, Swayze asked her to divorce her husband, but she said she was unwilling because she didn’t want to be the reason Swayze broke his commitment to his own wife.
Look out for the new and confident Kirstie Alley and the always sexy John Travolta on Kirstie’s New Show in December.
