Kirstie Alley On Dieting, Dancing With The Stars, and Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Kirstie Alley continues to get slimmer and slimmer by the day as you can see from a new Daily Mail picture above. Yesterday, Kirstie was a co-host on The View where she was asked about her weight loss. Kirstie remarked that she has lost 90 pounds with 30 of them being after she started dancing on Dancing With The Stars. She also promoted her diet company “Organic Liasons” saying that “the products helped to give her energy to get her through the strenuous competition”. Here is more from The Examiner of Kirstie’s appearance on The View. She is asked on Maks too which I’ll address afterwards.

Actress Kirstie Alley was the guest host on ABC’s talk show , “The View,” on June 21, 2011. Alley sat in along with regular hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

The first topic was Kirstie Alley herself. Alley has had a public battle with her weight over the past several years. She announced that she has lost a total of 90 pounds. She lost 60 pounds prior to her recent stint on “Dancing with the Stars,” and an additional 30 pounds during the celebrity dance competition. Alley said that beyond the weight loss, the hours of daily dancing changed the shape of her body. The strenuous exercise helped with the weight loss and toned her body, so she looks fabulous.

Kirstie Alley took a few minutes to hawk her company, “Organic Liasons,” saying that the products helped to give her energy to get her through the strenuous competition. The company also focuses on organic living and getting harmful chemicals out of the diet.

Alley was asked whether her relationship with pro-dancer Maks went beyond the professional relationship seen on “Dancing with the Stars.” The dancing couple did seem to have sizzling chemistry, but Kirstie refused to confirm or deny. Make of that what you will.

I can’t believe they asked her if there was something more going on with her and Maks? What if there was? And why is it that people can’t go out with each other without it being said there is something more than a friendship? Anyway, here is Kirstie looking spectacular with Maks as well while attending the “Bad Teacher” premiere in New York Monday night.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

Former DWTS Pro Julianne Hough is a Busy Bee!

I’m trying to figure how to write this, and where do I start? Since she left DWTS, shes been extremely busy, and lately, it seems like things are going fast and furious for her.

Currently, she’s busy shooting a movie, like her brother Derek. She’s in Miami, and will be working until sometime in August, and Derek’s in Toronto, and could be wrapping up shortly! When Julianne finishes filming this movie, she’ll be gearing up to promote her second movie, Footloose, which will be in theatres on October 14th. And the first trailer is out…. NOW!!!! Julianne plays Ariel Moore, the preacher’s daughter. And other than that, I have no words…. Just watch the trailer…

Monday, though, she was in New York City for a very worthy cause, to raise awareness of therapy dogs, and helped to kick off the first ever American Hero Dog awards voting. She was fortunate enough to perform an acoustic concert for some Military Vets, and meet with the wonderful therapy dogs that were there. And there was quite a bit of press at the event, and they didn’t just talk with her about the reason she came. She answered questions about co-star Tom Cruise, her relationship and why it works so well, her own dogs, Lexi and Harley, what she took from the Harry Potter set that she wasn’t supposed to take with her….  You can read those HERE or HERE or HERE. The last one has a video, click to go see it. If you want any more information about those topics, you’ll have to click and read for yourself, because they don’t really have to do with DWTS, and I don’t want to waste too much space here. :)

More importantly, she was asked if she was ever going to return to Dancing with the Stars, and she said…

Can fans expect her to return to the ballroom on Dancing With the Stars?
“You never know — maybe. I would love to go back to one of the results shows where they bring back people to dance and maybe get to dance with my brother again. I’m dancing here and there. It’s hard because my path has changed a little bit, but I dance a little bit in Rock of Ages, so I’m still rockin’ and rollin’.”

Here’s a video that explains a little bit about the Hero Dog Awards. I know it’s not DWTS related, but it’s a good cause, I think. Every vote will help therapy dogs. And just click here if you want more info.

Heidi’s Note: Since we’re talking Houghs, I must add this picture, because I love it so much. :-)
