KIRSTIE ALLEY TO APPEAR ON WILL & GRACE

CHEER-Y IDEA:

It's hush-hush, but Kirstie Alley of "Cheers" and "Veronica's Closet" fame just inked to guest on four "Will & Grace" episodes -- playing the sister of acid-tongued Megan "Karen" Mullally! If the chemistry clicks, producers want Kirstie as a regular to stiffen softening ratings!
