Yikes!

We never realized it was so bad!

Kirstie Alley recently spoke with Entertainment Tonight while pimping her new book, The Art of Men (I Prefer Mine al Dente).

She touched upon several scandalous topics, but what really stood out was her confession that she once suffered a deadly cocaine addiction — more serious than anyone knew!!!

The Dancing With the Stars favorite admitted:

"I thought I was going to overdose almost every time… There was about a year’s span that I did cocaine that I was doing it – you could say – more occasionally, on the weekend. Then my weekend became a three-day weekend, then it became four, then it became five. But I would do so much at a time that I would snort the coke and then I would sit there, I would take my pulse [thinking]: 'I’m dying, I’m dying, I’m dying.' Who would keep doing it? But it’s such a weird, mind-trippy addiction."

Oh noes!!

We're so glad her bad habits didn't do her in back then!

So is she!! In fact, she credits Scientology with her turn around.

She revealed:

"A friend of mine sent me this book. Most of my friends were drug addicts so they didn’t send me books. But one of my friends who wasn’t, was a Scientologist and she sent me Dianetics [by L. Ron Hubbard]. Somehow I got through it and I thought: 'This is either the world’s biggest scam or this is how I’m going to get rid of this hideous compulsion that I have.'"

Whoa! Xenu to the rescue, eh?

Kirstie also spoke recently about a potentially steamy relationship with Patrick Swayze.

The 61 year-old actress sure is confessing to a lot of past transgressions these days — we hope she's okay!

    This chick is more messed up than I thoughts…

    She gave Scientology Cult $5 million to become a female Grand-Pooh-Bah…

    Well, it didn't cure *all* her addictions, she still has issues with food. I always wondered if she packed on the pounds just so she could go on Oprah again. Either way, she's a royal douche for praising scientology. It couldn't be more evident it's a scam, an elitist scam. Just ask the growing numbers of those who've rejected the faith, they're losing many of their own.

    Honestly, what is wrong with that woman? Wait, don't answer that…
    She really needs to stop talking right now. This is getting more and more embarrassing. Although no one can trump Donald Trump when it comes to being embarrassing. He's lucky he's so rich, so people around pretend to give a f**k about what he does or says.

    She's just trying to sell books. Anyone who is as old as she is was hooked on drugs - she grew up in that era. As far as the rest of the trash I've seen on television about affairs, etc. She's a selfish woman trying to stir up attention. AND she's gaining her weight back - how many spanx does it take to make her look forty pounds overweight instead of sixty?

    Well obviously the cocaine really messed up her mind considering all the crazy things she's been talking about lately–all her non love affairs.

    I thought cocaine made you thinner, not fatter.

    Scientology is trotting Kirstie, out to try and bury all the bad news about one of it's front-groups,Narconon. Three people have died at one Narconon facility in the past year under suspicious circumstances. Kirstie is the chief Narconon spokesperson and that's why she's been issuing comments to the press almost everyday this week.

    Take a long hard look at how she has aged and changed since Cheers. That is what the Cult of Scientology will turn you in to. As for her Organic Lesions, it's a laxitive based diet supplement, the enema diet. Poo to you.

    People overcome things all the time without crediting some random philosophy. A lot of people imbibed then, and the lions share overcame without scientology. She doesn't give herself any credit. They all sound dependent.

    Krusty is touting Scientology Narconon program. The one that is being closed down because clients have died and the counsellors have no real medical training. Won't she be embarrased for shilling another one of the cult's failures!
