Profile Bio Text
In high school Alley was a cheerleader. She was a cocaine addict for two years after dropping out of college, and says it took her a month to drive from Kansas to California, because she had to find sources and buy drugs all along the way. She played a Vulcan in her first film, Star Trek II. Kirstie Alley's first series was Masquerade in 1983, with Greg Evigan and Rod Taylor, wherein Alley kept a watchful eye on novice spies.
She later got a part on the movie North & South as Virgilia. Which, the movie made her known in the industry.

From 1997-2000 she was in the lingerie business on Veronica`s Closet with Kathy Najimy. After that show was cancelled, Alley gained much weight. Unlike others, though, Alley laughed along, even starring as herself in the aptly named reality/sitcom Fat Actress.
In 2006, after a year on the Jenny Craig diet, she showed off her no-longer-fat body in a bikini on Oprah. Alley is the only surviving cast member from Cheers who never visited Kelsey Grammer on his spin-off Frasier.
