Never Mind! Kirstie Alley Will Not Be Doing Aerials In Her DWTS Freestyle
Sometimes Kirstie Alley just says things. It's part of her appeal. But it also means her Dancing With the Stars pro partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, has to follow behind her and ask what the heck she meant. Then again, he blurts stuff out all the time as well, which is part of what makes them a perfect pair.
For example, on the Season 12 Semifinals Results Show, Tom Bergeron asked Kirstie what they had planned for their Freestyle dance. Maksim's response is pretty hilarious. “She goes, ‘Well, we’re going to do a lot of aerials,’” Maks told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Thursday’sAccess Hollywood Live. “So he walks away. I go, ‘Do you even know what aerials means?’ and she goes, ‘No, I just heard it from Cirque du Soleil people.’ I’m like, ‘Great. That’s when you’re in the AIR.’ She’s like, ‘OK… I’m going to take that back!’”
What will they actually do for the Freestyle? “I think we’re just going to depict her story on the show and it’s gonna be [a] life transformation kind of thing,” Maks said. “It will be fun.”
As you would expect, Maks believes Kirstie is the most deserving to win the Season 12 Mirror Ball trophy "because of the transformation she went through — it was a life-changing experience for her."
