Dancing with the stars, the famous dance competition show on ABC, first released in 2005. Over the past decade and a half, there has been a non-stop parade of celebrities – Jerry Springer, Mario Lopez, and Kim Kardashian West, just to name a few – a couple with professional dancers all vying for the crown of the best dancing couple. For some celebrities, appearing on DWTS has launched careers (or resumed difficult careers), or helped refresh a celebrity’s public relations image. But for other celebrities, poor performance or bizarre pairs will provoke bitter public outcry instead. You can add Kirstie Alley’s DWTS performance to that list.
Kirstie Alley appeared in season 12 of ‘Dancing With the Stars’
Shortly after season 12 aired, Chmerkovskiy appeared on Andy Cohen’s show Watch what’s happening live and stated that he and Alley were not friends in any way, despite training together for weeks. “She stopped coming with me,” he told Cohen US Week, with the tabloid going on stating that the two “went from friends to enemies. ”
Meanwhile, a series of cryptic Tweets from Alley followed Chmerkovskiy’s comments in public aimed squarely aimed at her dance companion. In one tweet, she suggested that he had gotten over it (although Alley was using far more explicit language).
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Alley has not Tweeted about it DWTS for a while, though that didn’t stop her from arousing other controversies on Twitter.
