Dancer Partner Says Kirstie Alley Needs To Eat More
Kirstie Alley has been reprimanded by her professional dance partner on hit show "Dancing With The Stars" for not eating enough in between rehearsals.
The larger-than-life former "Cheers" star, who has faced a constant battle with her weight over the past decade, fell from a stage during a rehearsal routine and collapsed in pre-taped footage.
Her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy blamed Alley's poor eating habits for her mis-steps, explaining she wasn't eating enough to keep her blood sugar levels up.
He asked, "How many calories are you on now?" to which the actress responded, "1,400." The dancer said, "Really? You should be eating more."
Speaking after the show on Access Hollywood, Alley revealed, "I forgot to eat... This is my life dream when somebody says, 'Eat a sandwich'."
