She may not have had a problem flaunting her bikini body on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," but Kirstie Alley isn't about to show off her footwork on national TV. The actress has admitted that she's just too terrified to do "Dancing With the Stars."
Addressing recent reports that she'll be one of the celebrities competing on the upcoming season of ABC's hit dancing competition, Alley, 59, tweeted yesterday, "Just a rumor. Imagine that. NOT doing DWTS this season... Way too chicken!! Maybe next season if Im invited again!!!"
That's not to say Alley doesn't know her way around the dance floor. In fact, in a 2005 interview with Winfrey, 56, she revealed that - besides circuit training - dancing was a huge part of her fitness regime.
"In between each piece of equipment I dance really hard. And then I dance at the end for about 20 minutes," she said. "I do this anywhere from four to six times a week. And then I pretend like I'm Muhammad Ali at a disco."
