At least, that's what Veronica's Closet star Kirstie Alley had in mind when she pushed the issue of what court would split her and ex-husband Parker Stevenson's assets all the way to the Maine Supreme Judicial Court.
But on Friday, the Pine Tree State's high court ruled the case would be decided in California--a venue more convenient to Alley (she films her series there) and most of the witnesses, but also a state with community property laws that divide all the stuff up 50-50.
The former Cheers star and the ex-Hardy Boy, who officially ended their 14-year marriage last year, shared homes in the two aformentioned states, in addition to Oregon.
Perhaps eager to continue a well-funded lifestyle--a typical Christmas during the couple's marriage ran about $30,000, and holiday parties weren't much cheaper--Stevenson is seeking his half, in addition to custody of the kids, William, 5, and Lillie, 3, plus $75,000 a month in child support.
As for Alley, she's moved on and into the Hollywood Hills home of Melrose Place alumn James Wilder.
