Kirstie Alley Talks Of DWTS, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, And Her New Book

Dancing With The Stars All Star Kirstie Alley writes of her two time partner (lol, did I just write that?) Maksim Chmerkovskiy in her new book with good things to say. She tells People that he’s in the “special category” and they have a special bond. Read why below. She also talks on Dancing With The Stars.

“There’s a chapter on Maks,” Alley, 61, says. “The book is about how men have influenced my life. Every chapter is named after an art. He’s the only one that’s the art of a name. The Art of Maks, because he’s a special category. He is a special guy.”

Alley reveals the secret to their close connection.

“What’s not known is that Russians and Kansans always bond,” she said, jokingly. “That’s the link that no one knows about.”

As for the latest season of DWTS, the actress says, “We feel like a bit of the underdogs of dancers, but if we have more weeks, we are changing this, and I will be freakin’ spectacular.”

Adds her partner with a laugh, “We’re going to sabotage other people’s rehearsals.”

You can read the full article at People. This is a book I wouldn’t mind reading. Note that “The Art of Men (I Prefer Mine al Dente)” is due out Nov. 6th.

Take that Hope Solo!
