Kirstie Alley isn’t about to let her newfound “Dancing With the Stars” attention fade away. Last night, it was her mouth — not her feet — that helped her steal the show.
At the end of her quickstep number, Alley grabbed partner Maksim Chmerkovsky and planted a long kiss on him.
It was a wily move on Alley’s part. Several of her competitors showed strengthened skills this week (the three-way winners of the night were Romeo, Chris Jericho and Hines Ward), so Alley didn’t look like the dancing phenom she did last week.
But she found a way to keep herself at the top of the news cycle — and to build a narrative of carefree self-reinvention that will likely continue throughout the season.
