Tom Selleck Kirstie Alley

Battle of the Network Stars

boylorne: Back when she was on “Cheers”, I had a crush on Kirstie Alley. She wore blouses and was insolent. It was amazing.

Cynthia Rhodes

Officer Karen Thompson (Cynthia Rhodes) hopes to get moustached by Tom Selleck

Bonus facts about Cynthia Rhodes! She starred in a Toto video! She is Rosanna! That is her slinking around a fence and swinging around a stop sign. She is also married to Richard Marx and at one point sang for Animotion (but this was post-“Obsession”, so it’s not as awesome as it could be). Either way, nice work Cynthia Rhodes! Richard Marx probably sings this and thinks about you!

(this was my song for a dance number in gym class in the second grade. i think it involved forward rolls and ribbons on a stick.)

    I never watched Cheers, but I thought that Kirstie Alley was very good in “Fat Actress” (2005).

    I actually watch this movie about once every two weeks. I love the spiders on the elevator scene.

    Oh man this movie is so awesome. I didn’t know all that about Cynthia Rhodes, so thanks for the fun facts!
