New details have emerged following the announcement that actress Kirstie Alley had died after a brief fight with cancer. The world is now learning about the type of cancer she faced.
Through a statement provided by Kirstie Alley’s representative, people confirmed that Alley had been diagnosed with colon cancer. It’s still unknown when Alley was diagnosed. Alley was a participant on Fox’s The Masked Singer earlier this year for those who are fans of the show. Whether Alley was battling cancer throughout her time on the show is unknown.
And now, as the news of Alley’s death spreads, several prominent acquaintances have issued their statements. According to John Travolta:
Kirstie Alley once referred to John Travolta as her “biggest love,” even though they were never genuinely romantically linked. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the lifelong friends starred in the Look Who’s Talking film franchise. As a Celebrity Big Brother U.K. cast member, she claimed it was easy to fall for Travolta when working with him.
“I nearly went away and married John. “I loved him, and I still do,” Alley added. “If I hadn’t been married, I would have married him and flown in an airplane because he had his [own plane].”
In an exclusive statement to People, Danson said, “I was on a plane today and did something I rarely do. I was watching an old Cheers episode. It was the episode in which Tom Berenger proposed to Kirstie, who kept saying no despite her great desire to say yes. Kirstie was fantastic in it. Her portrayal of a woman on the point of a nervous breakdown was both poignant and hilarious. She made me laugh 30 years ago when she shot the scene, and she still makes me laugh now. I found out Kirstie had died as I stepped off the plane. I’m both sad and thankful for the times she made me laugh. My heartfelt condolences go out to her children. Their mother, as they all know, had a golden heart. “I’ll miss her.”
“We are heartbroken to inform you that our beautiful, feisty, and loving other has passed away following a struggle with cancer that was only recently found,” the message began. “She was surrounded by her closest family and fought valiantly, leaving us with the confidence of her never-ending joy of life and whatever adventures lay ahead.”
“As iconic as she was on television, she was an even more incredible mother and grandmother,” the statement read. We appreciate the Moffitt Cancer Center’s amazing team of doctors and nurses for their care.”
“Our mother’s fire and passion for life, her children, grandchildren, and numerous animals, not to mention her unending joy of creating, were unsurpassed and left us encouraged to live life to the fullest just as she did. We appreciate your love and prayers and ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.”
True and Lillie Parker Parker, her two children, signed the statement.
