Kirstie Alley and Max: Kirstie Alley Dancing with the Stars First Performance

I loved Kirstie Alley on Cheers, but liked “Diane” better, for whatever reason. You’ve probably seen Kirstie Alley’s first appearance on Dancing with the Stars. I just found the video and have to say I’m impressed. She is far from her max weight and she moves lightly for a woman of her size. She has uber confidence, or at least she makes us think she has it. Her partner is Maximillian Chmerkovskiy, who doesn’t suffer fools. He seems to be having a good time.

On the show, when the practice session is aired before the dance, Kirstie tells Max she is 60 years old, and he gallantly says she “looks good.” She says every move has to be done so quickly and that is her biggest problem: “If someone told me to haul ass, I’d have to make two trips,” she quipped. The judges told her her foot work was the best of the night, and gave her two 8’s and one 7. Note to Makeup: Puhleeeese, work your magic on hair, eyes and lips!

H/T to American Power who has so much more than Kirstie Alley. Read about the controversial new pro-Palestinian movie, Miral. Donald is viewing the movie tonight and will have more.
