Dancing with the Stars is ramping up for their season 12 premier and are set to announce their full cast tonight during the Bachelor, but we have gotten word of a few of the names that will be competing on the dance floor this season. One of those DWTS Cast names is Kirstie Alley with Maksim Chmerkovskiy as her partner. Most recently Kirstie Alley has been known for her struggles with weight and her different weight loss endorsements/attempts as well as her reality show, but there was a time not too long ago that she was one of the most well-known stars on TV.

At the height of her career Kirstie Alley was one of the stars of the mega-hit TV show Cheers. During those same years she stared in the hugely successful Look Who’s Talking movie franchise. For several years after Cheers ended Kirstie stared in a number of different movies and then returned to TV in a show called Veronica’s Closet.

But the 2000’s have not been so kind to her. She has had some roles in TV movies, but most of the press Kirstie Allen has gotten has been about her weight gain and her struggle to lose it. If there is one thing Dancing with the Stars shows us it is that the constant working out and dancing helps people lose weight. Some past DWTS contestants like Kelly Osbourne have undergone near complete body transformations on the show and many other contestants have seen themselves shed those extra pounds and start looking great.

As Kirstie Alley joins the DWTS Cast, she will be paired with taskmaster Maksim Chmerkovskiy. He is known for being a no non-sense kind of guy who will push his partners for perfection. He is likely going to push her to lose weight and get in shape. If she can survive the early rounds and dedicates herself to eating right and rehearsing as much as possible, Dancing with the Stars might just be that life changing thing that Kirstie Alley has been searching for to help her shed those pounds.

  1. Is Kirstie UP or DOWN on the weight loss roller coaster these days? Maybe she wants to be on the show to shed some extra pounds.Worked for Kelly Osbourne. You’d think Scientology would have solved this problem for her already.

  2. Wow, Isn’t she a little too plump to be dancing on DWTS? Or has she jumped on the Jenny Craig wagon again?
