Kirstie Alley arriving to the Vera Wang show during Fashion Week in New York (9/13)

Even though I'm not sure she's technically still famous, Kirstie Alley went into full "A-list star mode" last Sunday and demanded a helicopter. So, what's the big deal? It was to fly her into the "Long Island Remembers" 9/11 10th anniversary tribute. Um, maybe that's a day to tone it down a little, Kirstie? Ya think? From the New York Post:
Steve Carl, of Carlyle on the Green, offered Alley transportation to the charitable commemoration, but reps for the restaurant told Page Six they were shocked to hear her “demand” for a helicopter landing, showbiz-style, in the middle of the polo field. Alley was informed it wouldn’t be possible to charter a chopper, since it did not comply with airspace restrictions set for Sept. 11.

“She had a set of demands that she wanted met before she made the appearance,” Leslie Gonzalez, an event organizer who reps Carlyle on the Green, told us. But, “She almost canceled the appearance because she couldn’t get a helicopter.”

Another restaurant rep chimed in, “We couldn’t believe it. It’s a memorial service, not a party.”
Can you really blame Kirstie for requesting a helicopter to bring her to the memorial? It's my understanding that a Boeing CH-47D Chinook has a load capacity of more than 33,000 pounds. Frankly, considering the sentimentality and importance of the event, Kirstie should have made a more reasonable request for transportation -- like a semi-truck or forklift.
