Shelley Long has wrapped up “Cheers” work. But not for good. She tells me some members of the media have been spreading the word that she’s severing ties with the series this season, when the fact is she still has another season to go before she ful-fills her five-year commitment. She is busy right now promoting her “Money Pit” with Tom Hanks and preparing for a “Cheers”-less future, with a new deal that calls for her to develop and produce projects at Disney, for whom she’s making “Outrageous Fortune” with Bette Midler during her “Cheers” hiatus.
