Kirstie Alley not involved in latest ‘Dancing With the Stars’ fall

Updated: September 24, 2012 6:25AM

K arina Smirnoff added another misstep to “Dancing With the Stars’” season of stumbles. On Guilty Pleasures Night, she tripped on Ralph Macchio’s long coat and just looked guilty.

His paso doble to “Everybody Dance Now” was clearly intended to be a comeback; he brought out the big guns and worked his “wax-on, wax-off” moves into the choreography. Alas, the Karate Kid had to settle for a score of 24 out of 30.

Kirstie Alley has already taken a tumble and lost a shoe this season. Now she’s shot herself in the foot in an interview with Us magazine. “I started out in a size 12, then an 8, and then I think next week I’ll be in a 6,” she said.

Hey, I believe that she believes she’s a size 6, and she’s got a weight-loss plan to push, after all. But Alley’s not doing herself any favors by focusing us on her physique instead of her footwork. For the record, her samba earned a score of 26.

Carrie Ann Inaba dispensed the first two 10s of the season to Romeo and Chelsea Kane, tying them in first place with scores of 28. But Inaba giveth, and she taketh away: She accused frontrunner Hines Ward of thinking while dancing — for shame! — and awarded him a measly 9, landing him in second place.

At the bottom: Chris Jericho, with 22.
