Kirstie Alley Didn’t Want to End up Like David Hasselhoff
Tuesday March 22, 2011
KIRSTIE Alley was worried she’d meet the same fate as David Hasselhoff on Dancing With the Stars.
Sources say the actress feared being voted off first.
“Kirstie’s only wish was that she wouldn’t be the first star sent home from the show,” a pal told PopEater.
“She has been rehearsing for the past six weeks with her partner, Max, in almost total seclusion. No contestants really had any idea what was going on in the other rehearsal rooms.
“None of them really knew how good or bad their competition would be. Everyone doubted themselves a little, and no one wanted to be remembered as the David Hasselhoff of their season.
“You can’t just rely on your fame to get you far in this competition.
“Yes, having an active fan base does help, but at the end of the day even the most passionate fans stop voting if your dancing doesn’t improve. David is a worldwide phenomenon, having starred in some of the biggest TV hits of all time. If he can get voted off the first week, so can anyone.”
“She wasn’t ready last season. Mentally and physically she just couldn’t get her head around doing the show,” an insider said.
“Kirstie just turned 60, so I think she decided to take on her fear before it was too late.
“Kirstie is in this to win this.
“Don’t think for one second that she entered the competition to be voted out in the first few weeks. She’s determined to make it to the end even if it means getting her friends John Travolta or Tom Cruise to show her some moves. And I guarantee no one in the history of the competition will have better friends in the audience cheering her on. Oprah, anyone?”
