Dancing With The Stars 2011: Kirstie Alley
Larger than life star Kirstie Alley teams up with Maksim Chmerkovskiy on DWTS.
Kirstie Alley is probably best known for her role on Cheers, but she also stared in a TV series Veronica’s Closet and has been in dozens of TV shows as well as over 20 movies. Most recently she has been known mostly for her battles with her weight and her appearance on Season 12 of Dancing with the Stars 2011 will put that battle front and center.
Dancing with the Stars 2011 has a long history of helping people get in shape. Many contestants lose weight and we have seen some past contestants have complete physical transformations during their time on the show. Kirstie Alley may have a big battle ahead of her in that area. She is heavy right now which will limit what kind of moves she will be able to do on the floor and that limit could cause her run on the show to be shortened. Add in that she is partnered with Maksim Chmerkovskiy who is known to be a real taskmaster and she could have a rough time on the show. Personally I don’t see her going very far and I won’t be shocked if she is one of the first voted off, but you never know, Bristol Palin surprised us all last season. Maybe Kirstie Alley is this season’s Bristol.
