Kirstie Alley Passes Away After A Short Battle With Colon Cancer
Kirstie Alley, known for her iconic role as Lexi Featherston on the 80s show Sex and the City, has passed away after a short battle with colon cancer. She was 55 years old and if it weren’t for her work on the show, she would have never become a household name.
She was the star of a few films, including the Look Who’s Talking series and the movie Bride Wars. But her career began in the late ’80s, when she made her professional stage debut as an understudy for Candice Bergen in the Atlantic Theater Company production of David Mamet’s A Raisin in the Sun. Her other television credits include CBS’s sitcom Mom, HBO’s Sex and the City and the TV Land comedy The Exes. In addition to her acting career, she was also an animal lover. She has been photographed with many of her pets, including a miniature dachshund named Buddy.
Although Alley was best known for her television work, she also produced two movies and wrote an article for the New York Times about her favorite subject, animals. Among her achievements, she won an Emmy Award for her work on Cheers. Other notable films she appeared in include Hurricane Bianca 2: From Russia with Hate and It Takes Two. Kristen Johnston is a talented actress with a lot to say. Some of her most noteworthy roles include the title role in the movie Viva Rock Vegas and the role of Sally Solomon in the ’90s sitcom 3rd Rock from the Sun.
Her other achievements were not as well regarded. While she did make the list of the Top 10 Most Popular Women in Hollywood, she never became a household name. Thankfully, her daughter has been there to support her through thick and thin, posting the best photos of her mom on Instagram to commemorate her passing. On the topic of her legacy, she was a fervent Trump supporter, and endorsed the candidate in the recent presidential election. When she was asked about her choice in office, she explained her decision in plain English, citing her faith as the reason for her decision.
As for the aforementioned name sleuthing, the best answer to that question is not a simple one. In fact, there are a dozen or so other women of note, who were more impressive than the average Jane or Joe. However, she arguably deserves the title of the first name on the list because she was the only one of her peers to produce a movie, a TV series and a book.
