The former Cheers star has been divorced twice, splitting from second husband Parker Stevenson in 1997 after 14 years of marriage.
She is now on the lookout for romance – but refuses to waste time on pointless dates with inappropriate men.
Alley tells U.S. talk show host Larry King, “I love, and I do want to be in love with someone else in my life. I miss being in love. I miss missing someone and being in love with someone and waiting for them to call.
“I went on a date about four months ago – sort of a date. I won’t do a date-date, because I don’t want to waste my time. If I meet someone and I think there’s a potential to fall in love with them, I’ll spend the time. But I don’t even want to spend two hours with some dude that I have no interest in.
“I want someone who is really funny. I want someone who has dough (money). I’ve never been the dough girl – because you know what, women who make money are threats to men who don’t make money. And that always causes a big problem… I want the guy to be happy in his own life and love what he does and be really interesting… I want to be two fabulous people that go together and then you’re like, oh, my God, these people are amazing.”
