Dancing with the Stars premieres in just a couple of days — this Monday on ABC. The stars of the show, both the celebrities and professional dancers, are starting to make the rounds to promote the next cyle of the show. One of the surprises of this upcoming season is that Kristie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy seem to be working well together.
“Her strengths are that she wants to do it. She just wants to dance. Sometimes I think she forgets what we are doing,” Maksim dished to In Touch Weekly “I’m like, ‘It’s a show!’ and she’s like, ‘no, just teach me [the steps], I want to dance!’”
Kirstie Alley is serious about the dancing competition and is constantly nagging Maksim about practicing in order to do well on the ABC series. “Okay, we’ll stay later!” says Maksim. “She just loves the idea, she loves the movement, shedding off weight, losing a lot.”
