Thanks to her life-saving weight loss, yo-yo dieter Kirstie Alley is feeling sexy again – and has set her sights on one of her former “Cheers” co-stars!
Sources tell The ENQUIRER the 63-year-old “Fat Actress” star has dropped 25 pounds, and it couldn’t come at a better time.
In our April 21 issue we reported that the scalecrushing star had gained 50 pounds, soaring to an extremely unhealthy 250 pounds.
Sources say doctors gave her a stern warning: “Diet or die!”
Dr. Gabe Mirkin, author of “The Healthy Heart Miracle,” who had not treated Kirstie, laid it on the line: “She’s headed for a premature death.”
An insider divulged: “Kirstie took the ultimatum seriously and used Jenny Craig to shed pounds. She’s getting there – now she’s feeling sexy and she has set her sights on Ted Danson.”
On June 25, Kirstie tweeted a picture of herself with Danson from their “Cheers” days. “Boy oh boy…Ted Danson is just sooooooo damn handsome…damn,” she posted.
Said the insider: “Ted’s wife, Mary Steenburgen, knows it’s an innocent flirtation, but they also know Kirstie wants to find a man.
"She hasn’t had a serious boyfriend since James Wilder in 2000. Maybe with the pounds she’s shed, Mr. Right will turn up soon.”
