Kirstie Alley’s drunken proposition for Patrick Swayze

The former Cheers star recently revealed she fell for Swayze while they were filming their 1980s TV miniseries North and South, and told how her secret crush went nowhere because they were both married.

Alley never slept with Swayze, but she now insists it wasn’t for a lack of trying – she invited him into her bed after a night of drinking.

In her new memoirs, The Art Of Men, she recalls telling the Dirty Dancing hunk, “I want to make love with you. I just don’t care anymore, let’s just do it,” but Swayze remained a gentleman and said, “No. Come on, you’re drunk. Kirstie, you don’t really want to do it. You’re not that kind of girl.”

Alley also tells Entertainment Tonight she was stunned when Swayze’s widow Lisa Niemi asked her to speak at his funeral after he lost his cancer battle in 2009.

She adds, “His wife asked me to speak. I have no idea if Lisa knows anything about Patrick and I. You know, I was probably the least of Lisa’s problems with Patrick. He was wild and crazy!”
