Kirstie Alley, a demanding diva? Hard to believe, but sources say that the former Dancing With The Stars contestant recently demanded a helicopter ride during a 9/11 tribute. That’s right, while hundreds of firefighters and police officers gathered in Long Island for 9/11 tribute services this weekend, Kirstie reportedly demanded a helicopter ride to the event, despite being offered normal transportation to the event.
One of the event organizers said that Kirstie Alley: “had a set of demands that she wanted met before she made the appearance,” and “she almost canceled the appearance because she couldn’t get a helicopter,” while a rep for a restaurant involved in the event stated: “We couldn’t believe it. It’s a memorial service, not a party.”
Kirstie Alley did end up taking a car ride to the event, and a rep for the star told The New York Post: “Kirstie was coming from Pennsylvania that morning, and was simply exploring all options of transportation, from Amtrak to helicopter, in order to ensure she made it on time to respect those being remembered. At no point was a demand made. Also, she ended up taking an SUV, not a limo,” adding that “further, at no point did she consider canceling the appearance and was happy to honor the firefighters, police officers and emergency services personnel in remembrance of the 10th anniversary of 9/11.”
