Wynonna Judd Talks Of Dancing With The Stars, Kirstie Alley Being Her Mentor, And More

There is a great piece posted at People.com on Wynonna Judd today. She tells them why she decided to dance on Dancing With The Stars. It’s a great diversion for her because it will help her focus on self-care for herself and other women. Her health declined shortly after her husband Cactus Moser’s leg was amputated in a motorcycle accident last August. Former Dancing With The Stars contestant Kirstie Alley has been her mentor through the process of deciding to do Dancing With The Stars. Check out Kirstie’s advise to her….

“I definitely went into being the wife and caretaker, and I let myself go in terms of way down the list,” she says. “There were days and days and days that I didn’t walk. I’m a walker, and I’m always telling my fans how to be healthy. It’s not about size and numbers, but I can honestly say I’ve seen the pictures from when I got married and before, and I see them now and I think, ‘You know what? I deserve to be healthy. I’m worth it.’ ”

Wynonna calls her pal and two-time former Dancing contestant, Kirstie Alley, 62, her “mentor in this process.”

Says the singer, “I’ve talked to Kirstie so many times. She said if you have fun and you do everything that you’re going to be doing with your heart, the rest will follow. I really believe that. She really misses [the show].”

Wynonna, who is partnered with last season’s all-star winner, Tony Dovolani, is eager to surprise viewers.

“It’s cool because I don’t think a lot of people thought that I would be doing this show,” she says. “There’s a little bit of me that goes, ‘Oh, really? Watch this.’ I do have a competitive part of me.”

Awww, I just love her and her heart. I love how she has a competitive spirit for all of this too. You can read the full story at People.com.
