Kirstie Alley’s Diet Blamed for Dance Floor Spill

Much has been made of Kirstie Alley’s mishaps on “Dancing with the Stars.” When her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s leg gave in as they made a move on the dance floor, what went through everyone’s mind was “Kirstie’s weight issues were to blame.” Whether or not that is true, the perception is reality and it had to be mortifying for the actress who has publicly battled with her weight for many years.

The emotional effects of such a public exhibition of one’s health struggles are probably on display in her desperate attempt to find a quick fix. Alley has gone on record as saying that she has been following a low-calorie diet. While calorie restriction is a must for weight loss, if it’s done to an extreme it can be dangerous, or at the very least, set one up for failure.

Alley took another big spill during a taping of “Dancing with the Stars,” this time falling off a stage.

“When I fell off the stage, I [saw] three stairs below me and I started going into slow motion and in my mind, I go, ‘okay there are three stairs, you have on heels, jump bitch’ because you’re either going to break something or you’re going to take control of this and that’s why I jumped.”
