Cheers star Kirstie Alley and her two children – William, 17, and Lillie, 15 – were photographed at the premiere of The Runaways in New York City on Wednesday (March 17).
While promoting her new reality TV show, Kirstie Alley’s Big Life, the 59-year-old actress – who has been involved in Scientology for the past 30 years – was blindsided on the Today show this week with a question about whether her new weight-loss program is connected to her religious beliefs.
That I would need to clarify or defend the intentions or affiliations of my LLC business corporation in the year 2010 is indicative of the intolerances that we as a country still need to overcome,” Alley said Wednesday. “However, after the Today show brought fringe bigotry and intolerance into the forefront of the national media I feel compelled to clarify [myself].”
Kirstie Alley’s Big Life premieres on A&E on March 21.
