Kirstie Alley has certainly established herself as a frontrunner on this season of Dancing With the Stars and has also made it clear she has a very important weight loss goal to achieve. The outspoken actress wants to lose five pounds a week and reach an overall goal of 40 pounds, meaning she has to reach the finals! And if she does, there is a chance she will don a bikini!
“Every week with the dancing is five pounds and I have 40 pounds to lose so I have to reach the finals if I want to reach my goal,” she shared and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy assured her that goal was very attainable.
When asked by reporters last night if she would wear a bikini if she made it to the finale, Kirstie replied, “No! We will not.”
But then Maks chimed in, “You’re not gonna reveal that yet. You’re not suppose to say anything yet. Wait till the end.”
“That’s right don’t tell anybody yet,” Kirstie added.
We hope she does! Kiristie is no stranger to showing some skin on live TV. In November 2006, she strutted her stuff on the Oprah Winfrey Show in a bikini.
The actress has always been open about her very-public weight battle revealing the most she has ever weighed was 230 pounds.
Now she is sticking to a strictly organic diet and dancing the pounds away.
“I’m not very hungry while I’m dancing,” Kirstie shared last night after the live results show. “I thought I would be. It’s the exact opposite. Olives! I’ve been eating tons, I’ve been eating olives for some strange reason. Maybe it’s because I’m pregnant or something.”
Kirstie also has a favorite dance move helping her tone up.
“Yeah, him slapping my ass and slapping my stomach, like “boom suck it up!” she revealed.
“I slap your stomach, I go like this,” Maks said patting her stomach lightly.
As for her “frontrunner” status, Kirstie shared: “I’d rather be a front runner than a back runner I guess. I don’t know what to think because like I said it’s consuming and overwhelming. You really feel like someone is just dragging you around. And you are, dragged around from place to place to place, go here, stand here, take a picture do this. You don’t have much time to think.”
