Kirstie Alley continues to be a study in scene-stealing on “Dancing With the Stars” — but last night, she wasn’t the one creating the must-see moment.
Partner Maksim Chmerkovsky stumbled moments into the pair’s rumba routine — causing Alley, who was balanced on his knee, to fall to the ground as well.
Honestly, to us, the slip looked so graceful, we almost thought it was one of those cheesy acting add-ins “DWTS” choreography is full of.
The couple still scored 21 points for their dance — better than they did last week.
As judge Carrie Ann Inaba put it, “Sometimes tragedy leads to incredibly beautiful moments.”
Tragedy? We’ll forgive Inaba the dreamy overstatements only because she just got engaged.
