She has died of an unspecified cancer, she was only 71. I loved her in Cheers.

That's sad.
I wonder what type of cancer she had?

Kirstie was so glamorous.
I really enjoyed a sitcom that she starred in about a fashion designer.
It’s taken me ages to find out what it was. It wasn’t listed on Wikipedia, and when I googled ‘Kirstie Alley sitcom’ it didn’t show up either. I was beginning to think that I’d imagined it.
Anyway, it was called Veronica’s Closet.
And yes, she was fabulous as Rebecca in Cheers.

Just read this news online now. I remember her from quite a few film and TV roles in the 80s and 90s. Very sad. RIP Kirstie.

How sad she was only 71. I loved Cheers and was always envious of Kirstie's thick lustrous hair! She was such a good comic actress.

Very sad. I always thought what a beautiful woman she was and has died far too early.
