Kirstie Alley Might Lose A Few Hollywood Friends After Hinting At Her 2016 Loyalty
Veteran actress Kirstie Alley recently sparked some Internet intrigue by declaring she has already selected her favorite candidate from the 2016 presidential field.

While many of her followers responded to that post with predictions and preferences of their own, it was Alley’s follow-up tweet – which narrowed down her favorite to a particular party – that led to a real debate.
Here’s a hint…I won’t be voting the party that starts with the letters D E M this time… I know it’s not much of a hint — Kirstie Alley (@kirstiealley) August 23, 2015
The reaction was decidedly mixed. Some loyal leftists took aim at the Cheers alum with a tirade of personal attacks, while others tried to paint the actress as anti-woman.
Plenty of others, however, welcomed a Hollywood endorsement of anyone other than a far-left Democrat candidate.
In any case, Alley did not seem too concerned about rubbing a few Twitter users the wrong way.
I went to bed crying…hahaha

She went on to share some advice for all Americans, regardless of ideology.
