Kirstie Alley surprised public once again. In a new preview of her interview with Barbara Walters played during a Wednesday, November 7 episode of "Good Morning America", she defended John Travolta concerning rumor that the actor is gay.
"I know John. With all my heart and soul, he's not gay," the Veronica Chase of "Veronica's Closet" stood up for the Daniel "Danny" Zuko of "Grease". She added, "I think it's 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?"
In a previously-released excerpt of her "20/20" interview with Barbara, the actress who claimed that she had lost 100 lbs in September 2011 also admitted that John was the "greatest love" of her life. She said that she fell in love so hard with the "Face/Off" actor after she met him on "Look Who's Talking" movie set in 1989, but she tried to hold it since she was still married to actor Parker Stevenson at the moment.
"Believe me, it took everything that I had, inside, outside, whatever, to not run off and marry John. And be with John for the rest of my life," she confessed. On why she didn't split with Parker at the time, the 61-year-old actress explained, "Because I feel like when you marry someone you're supposed to work hard at it, and you're supposed to make it work."
John was accused of sexual abuse by several males earlier this year. The first charge came from a male massage therapist, who claimed that John mauled him and masturbated at the Beverly Hills Hotel on January 16. A second lawsuit came from another male therapist, who claimed to be sexually harassed by the 58-year-old actor at an Atlanta hotel on January 25. Both lawsuits were dismissed in May.
On September 27, a defamation lawsuit launched by writer Robert Randolph against John and his attorney, Marty Singer, was also dismissed. The writer wrote a book about the "Pulp Fiction" star's alleged sexual behavior, and complained that Marty's response in a letter to the writer harmed him. The case was dropped once Judge Malcolm Mackey of Los Angeles Superior Court found out that the letter was under free speech protection.
