kirstie sends more pointed tweets

The Los Angeles Police Department has closed their missing persons case after locating high ranking Scientology member Shelly Miscavige.

An investigation was launched after actress and former Scientologist Leah Remini called police to report that the wife of David Miscavige hadn't been seen in public since 2007.

According to The Underground Bunker, the case has now been closed after it was determined that the report was "unfounded."

Remini, who is planning to dish some juicy Scientology dirt in a tell-all, is probably still wondering if the wife of the most powerful man in the Church of Scientology is being held under duress.

It didn't take celebrity Scientologist Kirstie Alley long to respond to the newest turn of events via Twitter:

According to The Underground Bunker reporter Tony Ortega, "Leah Remini and the public still has no confirmation on where Shelly Miscavige is, what condition she's in, and why she hasn't been seen at church events in the last seven years."

We're guessing Remini won't let it go -- which means that her former pal Kirstie, now her #1 arch rival, will continue to fire off more thinly-veiled Twitter salvos.  Stay tuned...

kristie alleys twitter smack talk

Kirstie Alley appears to be targeting her former Church of Scientology pal Leah Remini in a series of thinly-veiled tweets of the decidedly snarky variety.

The first salvo came directly on the heels of a statement by Remini, confirming media reports that she has broken ranks with Scientology after five years of "interrogations" and "thought modification."

Over the past few days Kirstie has added more fuel to the fire with these Twitter zingers:

kirstie trashes leah remini on twitter

Underground Bunker blogger Tony Ortega claims Kirstie Alley was "livid" at Leah Remini for creating yet another public relations nightmare for the Church of Scientology.

He claims the actress began feverishly working the phones when the story broke, demanding that Scientology's Hollywood Celebrity Center arrange a meeting so that she and her pals could be briefed on Leah Remini's church defection.

The meeting took place at the home of Melinda Brownstone - known on Twitter as @minmin1008.  By no small coincidence - she happens to be the godmother to Remini's daughter, Sofia.

Kirstie tweeted during the strategy gathering, "The sweetest poison is often served with a smile ... beware syrup.  I am at my friends gorgeous home @minmin1008 love hangin here."

kirstie alley sitcom gets green light

Kirstie Alley and her ensemble cast impressed executives of the TV Land network with their sitcom pilot and have been given the go-ahead to produce 12-episodes of the series titled 'Kirstie's New Show.'

The two-time 'DWTS' celeb will play Broadway star Maddie Banks, who finds her life turned upside down when the nerdy adult son she gave up at birth (Eric Petersen) surfaces after his adoptive mother dies.

Her assistant and best friend will be played by former 'Cheers' co-star Rhea Perlman and the role of her over-the-top driver went to 'Seinfeld' actor Michael Richards.

TV Land president Larry W. Jones said, "This cast is a TV Land dream team of stars.  Seeing them all together is truly mind-blowing."

Kirstie announced the big news via a YouTube video captioned 'Kirstie Alley Takes Manhattan -- and TV Land!'

kirstie alley says john travolta not gay

Kirstie Alley shared a few fun facts about John Travolta during an interview with Barbara Walters that will air Friday night on 20/20.

While dishing details contained in her new tell-all The Art of Men, the DWTS celeb told Walters, "John is the greatest love of my life.  It took everything I had inside, outside, whatever, to not run off and marry John and be with John for the rest of my life."

When the journalist inquired about the lingering rumors about Travolta's sexuality, Kirstie responded: "I know John with all my heart and soul; he's not gay."

She went on to explain, "I think in some weird way, in Hollywood, if someone gets big enough and famous enough, and they're not out doing drugs and they're not womanizing, what do you say about them?"

Check out a video clip from the interview below:

Kirstie Alley dropped a bombshell last night during a pre-taped interview with Entertainment Tonight reporter Chris Jacobs.  The actress revealed that she had an affair of the heart with the late Patrick Swayze.

Alley, 61, claims she and Swayze engaged in an "intense emotional affair" while filming the 1985 Civil War mini-series 'North and South.'

The actor was married at the time to Lisa Niemi, who remained his wife until his death Sept. 14, 2009.  Their union spanned 34 years.

Alley was then married to second husband, actor Parker Stevenson, whom she divorced in 1997.

Kirstie admits that it was not a physical affair, "But again, I think what we did was worse.  Because I think when you fall in love with someone when you're married, you jeopardize your own marriage and their marriage. It's doubly bad."

The 'DWTS: All-Star' celeb isn't sure if Niemi was aware of their strong connection, but she did ask Kirstie to deliver a eulogy at Swayze's 2009 funeral.

Kirstie told Barbara Walters recently that while filming 'Look Who's Talking' in 1989 with John Travola, she had to fight the urge to run off and marry him.  She claims, "He was the greatest love of my life."

Why is she suddenly unloading all of these secrets of the heart?  Her new tell-all 'The Art of Men' launches today.

in jeapardy of leaving dwts all stars

During the second week of 'DWTS: All-Stars' competition, two returning celebrity contestants have shown that they are clearly out of their league.

Bristol Palin landed at the bottom of the leaderboard with a lowly score of 18 for the evening and Kirstie Alley wasn't far off that mark with a disappointing 21.

The Wasilla, Alaska native has shown more confidence this go-around but her skills don't hold a candle to the rest of the field, with the exception of Kirstie, who really looks like a fish out of water this season.

Alley, 61, is suddenly feeling her age.  Last night she lamented, "Three lifetimes of Shawn Johnson is how old I am."

A look at last night's leaderboard scores reveals that singer Sabrina Bryan won the night with her super sexy Quickstep routine.  Nipping at her heels were French actor Gilles Marini and Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson:

It seems likely either Bristol or Kirstie will be eliminated tonight.  During their last 'DWTS' stints both women relied heavily on their fan base to keep them in the competition well beyond their level of expertise.  Will that happen again?

Other returning celebs who could fall victim this week ... Joey Fatone or Drew Lachey.   Judge Len Goodman received boos from the audience when he told the former 'N Sync singer, "If you can't dance, then at least entertain us, which is what you did."

Check out Sabrina's performance below.  She came dangerously close to a wardrobe malfunction at 1:19 on the slider.  Afterward host Tom Bergeron admitted, "I held my breath a little bit on that one:

kirstie alley and lady gaga

Kirstie Alley is all too familiar with the scrutiny that comes with weight gain, especially in Hollywood.  She offered up her opinion on the recent Lady Gaga weight gain controversy.

Gaga shocked her fans with the revelation that she had put on 25 lbs.  She offered up a Marilyn Monroe quote to those who struggle with body issues,  "To all the girls that think you're ugly because you're not a size 0, you're the beautiful one. It's society who's ugly."

'DWTS' celeb Alley spoke with PEOPLE and said, "Most of my career I was pretty lean, so when I gained the weight, obviously people noticed.  With Lady Gaga, she gains 25 pounds and it becomes this huge thing."

"It's Hollywood that is obsessed with weight. I think everyone should try to be healthy. Lean is better than not lean, but I think we send a horrible message to the world, especially to girls."

Alley mused, "She was so freaking skinny that 25 pounds would make her a what, size 2? There's an insanity here. I know it's a pressure on her. I know it is. It's really hard to play that game."

You can catch Kirstie on 'DWTS-All Stars' as she and partner Maks Chmerkovskiy take another run at winning the coveted mirror ball trophy.

maks and kirstie feuding

With the premiere of 'Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars' season set to kick off Monday, it appears that veteran pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy is growing restless.

We aren't sure if this is merely a ratings ploy or something of substance but the resident bad boy claims he is quitting the popular ABC celebrity dance competition when his contract is up next year.

It seems the Russian dancer has had it after 15 season.  He laments, "Essentially, 80% of our job is to give somebody another push in their career.  Or we make them into likable characters.  But at the end of the day, they go off and they better themselves.  I loved doing it.  But to be honest with you, at 32, I am at what-about-me time."

He'll be putting Kirstie Alley through her paces this season.  The former 'Cheers' actress proved to be one of the biggest viewer draws in the history of the show when she danced with Maks during season twelve.  They finished in the runner-up spot, losing out to NFL Super Bowl champion Hines Ward.

We checked out Kirstie's Twitter page to see which way the wind is blowing in her world this fine day.  We found her early morning tweet to be quite interesting and likely aimed squarely at her dance partner:

Maks plans to pursue acting and is considering a reality show with his brother Val Chmerkovskiy, who will hit the dance floor this season with Kelly Monaco.

Kirstie Alley was in New York City yesterday to hype her soon-to-be-released book 'The Art of Men: I Prefer Mine Al Dente.'

Known for her irreverent, no-holds-barred observations and hilarious opinions, the former sitcom star chronicles a down-and-dirty account of all the men she has slept with during her sixty years on the planet.

The book is available for pre-order on Amazon and will be published on November 13, 2012.

The former Cheers celeb saw a resurgence in her popularity last year during a decidedly successful stint on Dancing with the Stars.

Clearly the fan favorites all season long, she and pro partner Maks Chmerkovskiy finished second behind mirror ball trophy winner Hines Ward.

It is no secret that the actress has struggled with her weight for many years.  The former Jenny Craig spokeswoman was fired after she fell off the weight loss wagon.  She later launched Organic Liaison, claiming in September 2011 to have lost 100 pounds on her own program.

In late January 2012 she attended a birthday party in New York for her former DWTS partner and looked decidedly svelte in a long black dress topped with a slim fit leather jacket.

New photos seem to suggest that she is gaining again.  The patterned wrap dress that she wore yesterday did nothing to flatter her figure.  Our first thought was ... 'Oh no, she's gaining the weight back' but we also know that photos can be deceiving.

Check out more photos, including a side by side comparison shot that includes images captured four months ago:
