Kirstie Alley gets to work on two new TV projects

Kirstie Alley won't be putting up her feet once her time on "Dancing With the Stars" comes to an end. The actress has two TV projects in the pipeline, according to TV Squad.

"I have a series being written for me right now that I really love the concept of," Alley told AOL TV, adding that the new show is "sort of Virginia Woolf."

"They're doing it for TV Land and I like those guys," she said. "They are really bringing comedy back."

Besides the TV Land series, Alley—who previously starred in "Cheers," "Veronica's Closet," "Fat Actress" and "Kirstie Alley's Big Life," also has a cable show in the works.

"I have some people writing [a potential series] for me for HBO," she said.

Though Alley is thrilled at the prospect of getting her own shows, she is setting her sights even higher.

"I really want my own movies," she said. "I'm selfish, what can I say?"

    Why are you people being so nasty! Are you all of you beautiful, thin and put together? Probably not! You are probably a bunch of overweight, lazy people who have nothing going on in your life than to be nasty, meanwhile, she is laughing all the way to the bank! Get a life people!

    Is Kerstie a lesbian? Definitly nothing wrong with being one but was just wonderring. She seems like a fun happy person but isnt married. Maybe she is happier being single. Best Wishes to her ! She is a super super nice person !

      She used to be married to Parker Stevenson (he played one of "The Hardy Boys"), but I'm thinking that she got a little loopy with her Scientology stuff. I remember her showing up as a guest on The Rosie O'donnell show with a tank of oxygen because she had to use it on her skin to give her soft skin or something weird like that. She tried it on Rosie and the look on Rosie's face was like "'ve totally lost it!".

      She is divorced from actor Parker Stephenson and they have 2 children, probably adults now.
