'DWTS' Kirstie Alley Blames Petra Nemcova for Shoe Mishap
“I’m tired of having to recover,” she says after another dancing mishap. “I would just like to do something right.”
Poor Kirstie Alley.
Last week, Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy dropped her and this week her shoe fell off during her waltz.
“I’m not doing a sitcom. I’m actually doing a dancing show!” she told reporters after the show Monday, reports USA Today. “I’m tired of having to recover. I would just like to do something right. I don’t feel like I’m jinxed, but I feel like I need to get my sh– together. When people are accident prone, there is something going on with them. There is something going on. Our rehearsals were swell. We’re bitchin’ in rehearsals. If you could just sort of tune into the rehearsalsŠ”
She went on, “Look, I’m supposed to be Swan Lake out there, la la la la la. Instead I’m like, la la la la and he’s supposed to come out to me but he comes up and I’m like, my f***ing shoe, my f***ing shoe, my f***ing is off, what do I do? I don’t know what you do in these situations! I’m going to write a book about this. I just feel like I want to be the people who dance well. First week, we were the people who danced really well. And somehow along we’ve become the freak show. The freak show is good but we need to take the dancing up a notch.”
Chmerkovskiy isn’t upset.
“Listen, we got an 8 and a shoe came off,” he told reporters. “Honestly, I’m very happy. I’m excited.”
Alley later laughed off her latest dancing mishap on Twitter.
In a message to fans, she wrote: "Hello!!!!! We love you!!!! So sweet to stand by us through thick or thin..... Or NO shoes.... Thank u!!.. So sweet!"
Asked who was to blame for the show mishap, she jokingly told People.com, "I think that the other girls came into my dressing room and tampered with my shoe. And I'm not going to name any names ... Petra [Nemcova]."
