If there's one thing "Dancing With the Stars" Kirstie Alley isn't, well, dancing around, it's her claim that she and Patrick Swayze developed intense feelings for each other while working on the 1985 miniseries "North and South," E! News reports.

However, the "Cheers" alum tells "Entertainment Tonight" that at the time she thought, "Do not go down this road," as both of them were married.

"We did not have an affair," Alley insists. "But again, I think what I did was worse. Because I think when you fall in love with someone when you're married, you jeopardize your own marriage and their marriage. It's doubly bad."

The 61-year-old actress adds, "After Patrick, I made a decision that I was not ever going to involve myself with anyone married."

Alley writes more about her relationship with Swayze in her new tell-all book, "The Art of Men," out today.


Kelsey Grammer is no doubt ready to let loose with some cheers.

The actor was exonerated from any alleged involvement in a Ponzi scheme after his name was dismissed from a lawsuit that claimed Grammer somehow played a part in stiffing investors out of their hard-earned cash.

According to documents obtained by E! News, the 57-year-old actor is no longer named as a defendant in the suit brought against him by actress Lydia Cornell.

Grammer was one of several individuals sued by Cornell in June over what she claimed was an Internet-based Ponzi scheme called Staropoly.com.

Cornell and her fellow plaintiffs alleged that the man accused of being behind the scheme piggybacked on Grammer's name to con others into joining the venture.

However, the "Boss" star's lawyer, Marty Singer, refuted such claims, telling E! News in June that "Kelsey received nothing from the venture, monetarily or otherwise" and revealed that the star lost $1 million of his own dough.


Honey Boo Boo loves her chicken nugget - and her chicken, Nugget, People reports.

That's right, 6-year-old pageant princess Alana Thompson has found a BFF in her new pet bird.

"Meet Alana's new pet NUGGET," reads a message on Thompson's official Facebook page, which is run by Honey Boo Boo's mother, June Shannon, and a friend named Bobbie.

The "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" star's new chicken seems to have filled the void left by Glitzy the pig, the pet she was forced to give away recently because he was interrupting her beauty sleep by waking her at dawn for food. Like the tiny pig, Honey Boo Boo and Nugget have been spending a lot of time together.

"Her and nugget have [become] very attached this weekend," reads the post. "And it [is in] the house but has a outside house too but alana refuses to let her sleep outside lol she sleeps inside at night in her inside cage."

As the pint-size TLC star moves on with her new feathery friend, Glitzy has moved on, too. The petite pig, who was returned to his breeder, kept his face camera-ready by appearing on Friday's episode of "Anderson Live."


Country singer Sammy Kershaw is thankful to be alive after his tour bus was struck by another vehicle, the AP reports.

It happened Friday in Nocona, Texas. The impact caused major damage to the bus, and the car was totaled. The driver of the car was hospitalized with injuries. Kershaw and the nine members of his band and crew were shaken and sore but not seriously hurt.

In a statement, Kershaw says, "Buses and cars can be replaced but people can't." No one died, but Kershaw says it could've gone the other way. He believes they had "a guardian angel."

Kershaw has not canceled any concerts.

Kershaw scored major hits in the early '90s, including "She Don't Know She's Beautiful" and "I Can't Reach Her Anymore." He has sold more than 5 million albums.


Carnegie Hall will reopen Wednesday for the first time since Superstorm Sandy forced it to shutter its doors, the AP reports.

The concert hall announced Tuesday that its planned concerts will resume Wednesday after more than a week of closure due to the storm. Carnegie Hall sits on West 57th St. where a hanging crane caused street closures in the area. After West 57th St. was reopened Sunday, Carnegie Hall still needed to restore power.

Carnegie Hall had canceled or postponed all performances since Oct. 28.
