As some of you have commented and have noticed yesterday at twitter, Dancing With The Stars contender Kirstie Alley, went full out trying to get as many items as she could to help those who are suffering from the impact of Hurricane Sandy on the east coast. She’s asked that people bring whatever they can from blankets, socks, underwear, snack foods, canned goods, baby food, teddy bears, and more down to her Organic Liaison store at 1864 N Vermont in Los Feliz, California 90027. The mission has been such a success that she tweeted the first semi load of supplies left Friday and will reach New Jersey today (Saturday) sometime. A second truck is planned to reach Staten Island, New York on Wednesday! John and Kelly Travolta along with Dancing With The Stars partner Maks Chmerkovskiy took part in the relief mission as well according to this tweet by Kirstie….

Tony Dovolani helped too as you can see in the picture above provided above by @DDubsDame at twitter. As Kirstie tweeted, “people are amazing!!!!! never under estimate what just a few people can achieve!!! it’s awesome” and isn’t that the truth?!!
In other things Kirstie Alley, she was interviewed on 20/20. It was scheduled to air last night on ABC. However, due to a hurricane special, I’m not sure they featured her interview? Can anyone confirm? You can read for a little of what took place with the interview at On The Red Carpet. She promotes her new book, “The Art Of Men”. Another topic Kirstie talked about was how John Travolta was the “love of her life”. Here she is in a teaser at E News….
Also, stay tuned as Kirstie is scheduled to be on the Jimmy Kimmell show this upcoming Thursday night!!
ETA1: According to fan @cherylldob at twitter, the 20/20 interview with Kirstie will air next Friday, November 9th. Thanks Cheryl!! 😉
ETA2: Below is a new interview with Maks that took place last week with On The Red Carpet. He talks of how Dancing With The Stars has stepped up their game this season. He got a note from TPTB for how well he and Kirstie are doing and putting smiles on faces. He loved their Gangnam style dance too. More below. There is more to this interview in more video segments HERE. Note too how Maks will be making a “Latin dancer” movie in MAY!

ETA4: Below is some more video coverage of Kirstie and Maks getting ready to send more items to those who have suffered from Hurricane Sandy. Kirstie explains everything and said the donation total will be matched by her friend John Travolta (if the video below doesn’t work, you can go here to find it.). Tony chimes in to explain too. Amazing!They’ve also made the Daily Mail. You can see some cool pics of them HERE!! Below is such a cute one. Be sure to see the link for more.
