In an exclusive interview with Closer Weekly, on newsstands now, former Cheers actress Kirstie Alley says after losing 50 pounds she is finally ready to date and shares the qualities she’s looking for in a partner.

“He has to be really smart, so when he’s funny, his humor is emitting from intelligence, not corniness,” she says. “And he has to have endless energy because if I was with someone who was too lazy, low-key or laid-back, I’d be like, ‘Oh my God, I’m bored out of my mind!’”

Kirstie who has her own kids – son William and daughter Lillie – says she’s open to dating a divorced dad under one condition. “Sometimes I meet guys who have kids in their late teens or early 20s, and they’re just screwed up monsters,” she says. “I don’t want to take that on. Why would I do that?”

She tells Closer, “I like guys who are really stable with women and stay with their children. I want a guy who’s sane, not someone who’s hopping around with different women and trying to act like he’s 20.”
