National Enquirer claims that Alley considers the new direction of "Mike & Molly" to be a direct slight to her. Because McCarthy's character talks about wanting to pursue a career in musical theater and because in her new TV Land series Alley plays a musical theater star, she reportedly considered this to be a personal insult.
"Kirstie was flabbergasted. She feels like the sudden plot change is a slap in the face," a source tells National Enquirer. "She's not taking the adjustment to Melissa's character lightly. She now sees Melissa as her competition -- and has let her know it."
