Kirstie Alley takes a fall on 'DWTS'

While doing the rumba on last night’s “Dancing With the Stars,” Kirstie Alley and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy took a nasty tumble, but the pair didn’t let it slow them down.

As they grooved to the song “Over the Rainbow,” Chmerkovskiy seemed to lose his leg support while holding on to his partner. As he fell, the “Stars” dancer brought Alley down with him.

They both quickly recovered though, and still managed to impress the judges, earning 21 out of 30 points.

Chmerkovskiy later tried to explain that his “thigh just gave out,” apologizing and adding that “it has nothing to do with her," according to People.

The judges were sympathetic, with Bruno Tonioli telling them, "You can't keep good talent down. Once you got up it was better than ever," and Carrie Ann Inaba saying that "sometimes tragedy leads to an amazingly beautiful moment.”

Alley gave her partner credit for their quick recovery, saying, "It was him. I didn't know what to do, and he just said, 'Keep dancing, let's dance.'"

Although the fall drew gasps from the audience and Chmerkovskiy was seen wincing in pain, the dancer insisted to CNN after the show that he was going to be fine.

Said Alley's "DWTS" competition Chelsea Kane, “I think all of us are kind of like in fear of wiping out on the dance floor,” she told CNN. “We all felt for [Kirstie Alley], she handled it beautifully."

    Congratulations Kirstie ………..for losing the weight, getting in shape and coming in second on DWTS, not bad I'd say for a women with determination and talent.
    Sweet accomplishment for you, as these bloodsucking, naysayer, minions of satan crawl back into their holes waiting for their next victim to tear into.
    Let’s see if ANY of them can even come close to accomplishing what you have, by the time they approach 60 years of life on this planet.
    I will suggest they try encourage and support others from now on...........they will be surprised to see how their life will improve. Positive people attractive positive,............... the negative, critical, nasty people attract what they dish. I’m all for eliminating the negative, critical nasty elements from this world.
    Happy, blessed, productive life, Kirstie.

    Kirstie's too fat for her partner. Plain and simple. Now with that said, I'd still do her. Giggity.

  3. Annoyed

    Come on guys...Maksim has been dancing all for most of his life. He's fit and strong–certainly strong enough to hold Kirstie. If he couldn't, that move wouldn't have even been in the choreography, since they had been PRACTICING IT all week and not ONCE did he fall then. The issue certainly is not with Kirstie. If you watch the video, you can clearly see the exact point when Maks's thigh clenches and gives out. It happens to the best; it's not something you can control. And it definitely was NOT Kirstie's fault.

  4. BigFatCow

    Look, I'm HUGE myself, but truth is truth. Yes, Kirstie's weight was most certainly the reason his leg gave out; he knew it but chose to be a gracious professional, and Kirstie totally knew it!! Because I am a fat lady, I could see it all over her face. I'm sure in time she will publicly admit it, and tell us that she really wanted to burst into tears, run offstage, and never come back. I know because I've been there, and that sickly, pasted smile on her face told me far more than the words they said afterwards. I was hurt and embarrassed for her, but again, the truth is the truth.

    Just use this as final proof in the coming weeks........I can guarantee you that for any remaining routines they may have this season, Maksim will NEVER again attempt to lift, or in any way support, Kirstie's weight in their dance. Dancing is his livelihood and he will not take a chance at injuring himself again!!

    Oh, boohoohooHOO. People are picking on another fatty. Yep, we are, because, unfortunately, the stereotypes are usually pretty accurate. Fat, lazy, stupid, sad, self-pitying. Pretty much useless to anyone because you've let your life go to hell and refuse to take responsibility for it. And a full third of you, America, are like that. When you can't squeeze your fat @$$ through the door or into an airline seat, what do you expect?

    As for Kirstie the Kow...what? She can't afford lypo? And that disappearing neck. Girl, gimme a break! You can put lipstick on a pig....

    All of you saying hateful words need to search and find the Lord, you are the ones that will be going to hell. I am a very self consious person with low self esteem and I most certainly will not be talking bad about anyones body image. I weight 110lbs and in a size 3 and thats after 3 kids, and I hate the size I am, to me I am to skinny, so you all want to sit here and talk about her when she is comfortable with her size and she is happy, how about you. Are you happy with the way you look? How about we all turn the tables and start putting you down about yojr size, head size, dancing ability, job, or anything else. Grow up, find Jesus, and start setting a good example for your children and just maybe when judgment day does come you might be able to pass threw Gods doors with the good people.

    The move they were doing was practiced in rehearsal many times. Maks did not just throw that in at the last minute. All athletes get cramps or other injuries from time to time. It can happen anytime, whether you are playing in the superbowl, competing in the Olympics, or competing on live, national TV. The truly awesome thing was the recovery. Maks and Kirstie showed class and integrity. Congratulations, you two, and best of luck!

    I have always like Kirstie and have enjoyed watching her dance so far. But.... – he fell because his leg gave out trying to drag almost 300 pounds across the floor. he gave it a good effort but that is what happened and many of you just need to be honest about it! Will I keep watching her and Mak – absolutely – but he really needs to be more careful considering what happened and she definately needs to lose weight....

    I saw Kirstie in Victoria's Secret last month. She was very kind and gracious when I asked for an autograph. We talked for 5 minutes, she said she bought a pair of edible-undies, bacon flavored. I thought she was joking, but low and behold she showed me. We chowed down together in a frenzy like a couple of sharks and lay together in a food-stupid heap of flesh on the floor.

    I knew everyone would argue over whether her weight made Maks fall, but what I found more interesting was how unsympathetic she seemed towards her partner's pain. She was laughing and jumping while he was limping. Could have shown some empathy or at least asked him if he was okay once.

      I must on to pursuits worthy of my time. I'll write a letter of encouragement to Kirsty and all the others who have the courage and guts to pursue new goals, even when ridiculed for not being as perfect as the evil bloggers on this site think themselves to be. If Kirsty WANTS TO and can find the key to losing the weight, she will loose weight to benefit herself. We need to celebrate who we are, not what others think we should be. May you be blessed to enjoy each day of your life and be a blessing to others as you go. Wouldn't it be great if we could all live like that?

    I feel so sorry for Max getting paired with ole Thunder Thighs. He's lucky he didn't break his leg when she leaned into him. She is gross, looks ridiculous, and is a disgusting sight to see on national television. It was bad enough coming from last season with chunky Palin participator, to now a huge rhino trying to show us dancing steps.
    Is this show in such bad shape that it has to use ugly, gross, cow like people to get the general public to watch it, just so we can have lots of laughs? Let's get back to normal, nice size people, to watch and enjoy on television. If I wanted to look at cows dancing, I can just go out in our back pasture and look at our cows, and you can bet they are a lot prettier than ole Thunder Thighs Kristi Alley. She is dog ugly, she knows it, and she should be ashamed of herself to go on television and show all that gross fat, which Omar The Tent Maker must have worked overtime to cover up.

    Kirstie Alley sure has guts. She has always struggled with her weight and honest about it. She is a talented actress and dancer (knowing she'd be in front of all those people) and what they would say about her. Some people can't lose and keep off weight for varied reasons (thyroid, etc.). What and who would people talk about and make fun of if God had made all of us the same color, weight, height, personality, etc? Adults making such comments are just like the kids in elementary and high school (and possibly college) bullying other students. These comments and remarks sometimes remain with people their entire lives; that's why they have no self-esteem, depression, etc. Wake up world and think about what God has given each of us. All of us should be thankful for each day we live and should love one another. What would you do if the same happened to you - go cry?????????

    If you review the clip, you can see that she did not cause him to fall. As she was approaching him while he was in a squat position, with his legs spread fairly widely, you could see the moment he got the "cramp" or whatever it was. try sitting up against a walll with no support but just your legs, like in a squat position. You will feel what he probably felt. only his pain was much worse.

    I agree with all those who stand up to the bullies. As long as there's the mindset that fat people are NOT people, but freaks there will be bullies.

And as long as there are brainless morons out there with nothing better to do than shoot off anonymous blogs making fun of others and thinking they're SO superior, there will be bullies. This is why kids cyberbully and are so cruel, they learn it from their moron parents. They learn it's okay to be hateful, esp. to fat people. And they probably consider themselves good Christians.

I do hope that their future routines will keep it safe for Maks as well as Kirstie.

    Kirstie Alley is 60 years and should have more sense than to think anybody on that show can handle her weight during such dance moves...the fact is the woman is BIG and none of those professional dancers are a match for her! She looks awful and acts like a goofey 16 year old instead of her age. She should be totally embarrassed for nearly crushing poor Max. I hope he survives this season!

    I hope every person who made a fat joke or comment balloons up to 350lbs overnight. I'm willing to bet Kirstie could probably out dance every one of you and I think shes doing VERY well. Whats sad is, Kirstie can hit the ground or stand still in the middle of the dance floor and she would STILL be more entertaining than Wendy Williams on her best day. I hope she makes it to the finals! Go Kirstie!

      By “laughing the day away" “it appears the truth of the matter is you (and many others) want to be mean-spirited and hateful towards your brothers and sisters who share this earth with you. Here you have a place to be as ugly as you wish with out consequences. Here's a novel Idea, try celebrating the value and worth of each person..
      My first time here – was looking for information on Maks and Kirstys fall last night. The ugly comments caught my eye. while I’m on my lunch break at work. Need to leave this dark side but first...................
      I am dismayed at the hateful venom spewing out of some of these hearts. What has happened to you to make you so, unkind, spiteful, hateful, and vengeful? Is someone abusing you, so you act out? Report the abuse and get the help you deserve.
      I challenge you to take a day (start with and hour and work your way up ) and be a positive light in this world.
      Here it is the middle of the day. If you had a night job, most likely you would still be sleeping, but here you are slamming Kirsty. Do you live off the tax payers dollars and fritter your time away each day on blogs? Can’t you find something productive to do? Take this nasty energy and turn it around. Get an education, learn to spell, take a grammar course, volunteer, get a job, find a blog, and be a positive light on that blog.

What is causing you to be so hateful and critical of others? Have you tried praising people for their good points? I suspect you do not get praised.
      I hope you are using your break time to blog and are not stealing time from your employer. I own my own business, so I do have a little freedom, right now, I am taking an afternoon break, and was wondering if you were still making hateful comments. I gues you'll (you will) be off to find a new victim on Wednesday, with so much venom and hate to spew..
      By the way I am trim, always have been, but it is work to stay that way at 59. Always looking for ways to grow as a person and learn new things. Do you hate seniors as well as the overweight? Please do try the positive way, you as well as others will benefit, I promise! life will be so much better for you, because you do reap what you sow. I think it's great you have a job, I hope you are doing something you love each day!

    For a person at her weight I think kirstie does a damn good job at dancing on this show. If you look at the video carefully you'd see it wasn't her fault, it was Maksims. Those who knocked her really do need to grow up. For some weight loss can be hard. If you don't know her, don't comment about her stuggles especially if you've never been in a similar spot she's in. She has a lot of courage and balls(which is something you "haters" don't have) to go out in public and on tv to dance.

    Many of these comments don't surprise me as obesity is "ok" to socially pick on. I'm surprised by the number of folks that have said that its a form of bullying (which it is) & want to say thank you to those that do not support hateful talk. Seventy % of americans are overweight or obese so its a national crisis. I can't imagine that these folks that are writing hateful comments do not have family or friends that struggle with these issues. Studues shoe same areas of the brain are affected with food addiction as with drug addiction so sometimes its not as simple as putting down that burger. And not every fat person eats sour cream or gravey so I suppose those are the foods that make you heavy, not her. There have been heavy dancers before, but I do agree that being heavy puts strain on both partners & as someone else said, Max is the one that created the dance. I don't recall these comments when other dancers got hurt, such as thw torn biceps, etc. Anyway, thanks to those that didn't accept the fat-bashing as ok.

    I think she looks wonderful! I've seen her in tabloids looking much bigger and on this show she looks perfect in her size. As for the fall, it was a mistake, he didn't support himself well, or his knee gave out, which can happen while supporting a tiny woman, or while supporting no woman at all. I am a really big woman (250lbs) and my athletic and fit husband can lift me up or give me a piggy back ride (I already get the pun, no need to point it out to me), so I cannot imagine that her weight had anything to do with his fall or injury.

    Your comments say more about you than her weight says about her. That's for sure.

    Kirstie –
    I am pretty certain that you don't read these posts but on the off chance that you do ... I think you're great! I don't care if you weigh 100 lbs or 300 lbs - it is not how much someone weights or what they look like that make that person .. it's the inner soul. Keep dancing. I'd love to meet you sometime!

    How cruel some of you are – shame on you. So easy for you to sit home and watch and make nasty comments – wonder what you all look like. I'm so proud of the way Maks was able to finish the rest of the routine – did any of you watch the rest of it all the way through? He and Kirstie finished it beautifully. The judges and the audience were obviously very proud of them. Professional ballroom dancers are NOT sissies. They don't just dance – they have to have to be as much of a trained athlete as someone in any other sport. If you think it is so easy, why don't you try a few lessons. And I've never seen such a nasty fall before on DWTS. Maks is in top shape and he said it had nothing to do with Kirstie. Take a look at his body – she wasn't just laying on top of him – she knew the routine and what moves were coming next. It was an accident. So get over yourselves. Your ridiculous comments just show your stupidity. It takes years to be able to accomplish what these dancers are able to learn – they sometimes start when they are small children, so again, it was an accident and I hope Maks is fine and he and Kirstie brush off all your hateful comments.

    Had one of the rather large men who have been on the show fallen on one of the smaller women dancers, would the comments be the same? I thought the same thing as another commenter below, how sad because of the vicious comments that will circulate because of her weight. I would hazard to guess the people making these comments would not have the stamina to get up and do a dance number like that. They just have enough energy to run their mouths. To be able to dance like that at 60 and being overweight takes stamina.

Kirstie is a woman and metabolisim works differentely for boys\women young girls\older women etc as women age if we dont move every moment weight loads up on us. Kirstie knows shes not a twig nor does she want to be. She has been and will continue to do her best in attaining a healthy weight,not for anyone else but for herself. Props Kirstie for taking on this DWTS challenge!! Keep up the good work Keep being yourself Good Luck!!

    It's kind of interesting to read these comments. This is exactly what people are talking about regarding bullying. You are the problem. This behavior is why kids go off and kill their classmates. You think that it is somehow allowed to abuse a person based on some physical abnormality. Gotta' say America, Kirstie is not that abnormal. And she's a LOT more successful than anyone posting on this board. Jealous much?

      I agree, the professional and choreographer created the moves etc. If he thought he could not move a couch he would not have done it. The lady with the stinky cat's breath must weigh 300 lbs. why is she so resentful of Kirstie dancing? Envy? Jealousy? Kirstie is heavy and she struggles with her weight, but she has the heart and the courage to dance in front of millions of people, not all as ill minded and evil hearted like the ones calling her names and criticizing her and blaming her for the fall. She did not cause the fall, up to the guy, so lay off the woman, people! She is gorgeous, a gorgeous heavy weight but so what? She is funny and likeable, and she is doing a great job!!!!!

      Maksim was a 'gentleman' when he took the blame for the fall. The truth is Kirstie is really so HEAVY that he couldn't support all that weight. She should really give serious consideration to losing weight. She has treated her weight as a joke in the past but she needs to lose weight. A lot of the people offering support to her (in this comments section) are probably OBESE also. No need to encourage her. Being fat is not something to be proud of–she's putting her life at risk carrying around all that weight.
