Kirstie Alley didn’t want to offend her Dancing With the Stars partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, but this week she enlisted the help of a “dance doctor” — John Travolta!
“You are fantastic and you are the bomb,” John tells Kirstie and Maksim. “I understand there has been two problems, a drop and a shoe… I suggest a sneaker, perhaps a high top.”
“Romantically what’s going on here?” John asks.”
When Kirstie says “nothing” John answers “that’s the problem.”
And John asked Maskim if he tells Kirstie he loves her enough.
“I do in Russian,” he said.
“That’s not going to work this week because it’s American week,” John answered.
Kirstie and Alley then took the stage and performed their foxtrot to “American Woman” with Maksim only wearing leather pants and a tattoo of the American flag!
Carrie Ann Inaba gave them an 8, Len Goodman a 7 and Bruno Tonioli an 8.”
After the show, Kirstie told reporters how she felt about her dance.
“I feel happy. I feel like the hex was broken,” she said. “Probably more than the other dances, I was really present. I was really comfortable again. The first week, I was actually pretty comfortable and then I wasn’t ’til this dance.”
And she has John to thank for calming her nerves!
“He’s very protective of me!” Kirstie explained. “I’m very lucky to have him as a friend and Kelly [Preston]. I couldn’t have 2 better people in my life.”
