Actress and UK Celebrity Big Brother star Kirstie Alley told celeb podcaster Dan Wootton that fellow actor and Scientologist John Travolta is not gay because they were in love with each other.
Said Alley to Wootton, according to The Sun: “John would agree it was mutual that we sort of fell in love with each other…It wasn’t a sexual relationship because I’m not going to cheat on my husband. But you know I think there are things that are way worse than sexual relationships, than cheating on someone that way…I consider what I did even worse because I actually let myself fall in love with him and stay in love with him for a long time.”
Asked if Travolta is gay, Alley answered: “No I don’t. I mean, I know him pretty well…When it became very apparent that I was staying married, he started seeing Kelly again…Kelly came up to me — and they were married then — and she said, ‘Erm, why are you flirting with my husband? And that was sort of when I had to make a decision and that was pretty much the end of that….And it turned out great because we’ve remained best friends all these years. They live next door to me! We’d come through the fence. It’s pretty funny.”
