Cheers actress Kirstie Alley is in the line up for this season’s Dancing With the Stars. She says she hopes to lose 30 pounds doing the show. Read more about it below.
Kirstie Alley is famous for her role in the sitcom Cheers and as a failed Jenny Craig spokeswoman. She just couldn’t get the weight off and keep it off. That being said, it was a little bit of a surprise when she was on the line-up for the next season of Dancing With the Stars. I would think it would take a lot of nerve to be on that show in the first place. When you are known for your struggle with your weight.
Alley, 60-years-old, says she’s lost 70 pounds and hopes to lose 30 or 40 more with the dancing. And she may, if she keeps it up and can get past the first few rounds of the competition.
She’s pair with professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy who says he’s taking it easy on her while Alley calls the rehearsals ‘grueling’ and says Dancing With the Stars is really hard.
DWTS season premier is March 21st.
