Performing challenging dances in front of millions of television viewers as well as a studio audience can be nerve-wracking. And last night (April 4) Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy hit a speed bump in their routine.
The former “Cheers” actress was accidentally dropped by her pro partner when his thigh “gave out,” though it didn’t seem to affect their score.
She may have accepted George Lopez's apology for making jokes last week that implied she was a pig, but Kirstie Alley had some choice comments for Lopez following her "Dancing with the Stars" performance on last night's show (March 28).
The 60-year-old fired off these harsh words when asked about the feud, "He's a b**ch but whatever. You know, he's a comedian. Comedians say what they want to say. It's not like he's the first comedian that's said anything."
Making their much awaited dancefloor debuts, the new batch of "Dancing with the Stars" contestants kicked off the new season of the hit ABC show on Monday night (March 21).
As for the standouts, Kirstie Alley impressed the judges as she worked the cha cha with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy to garner a second place score of 23 points, as judge Bruno Tonioli said, "I feel like we're just scratching the surface."
The new cast for the upcoming “Dancing With the Stars” season was recently announced, and earlier today (March 2), their dance partners were revealed.
The couples are as follows: Kendra Wilkinson and Louis van Amstel; Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas; Wendy Williams and Tony Dovolani; Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy; Peter Nemcova and Dimitry Chaplin; Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke; Romeo and Chelsie Hightower; Mike Catherwood and Lacey Schwimmer; Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunskaya; Hines Ward and Kym Johnson; and Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff.
