Just how nervous is Kirstie Alley over her Dancing with the Stars debut next week? According to a new Tweet, the level of dread ranks up there with involuntary public nudity.
“Yikes…only seven days away from DWTS…feels a little like that dream of being in highschool taking finals u forgot to study for….naked,” Alley, 60, Tweeted Monday.
But she might want to tone the nerves down a few notches. After all, she’s already broken through one barrier by impressing her hard-to-please pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
Chmerkovskiy – who made the top four with Brandy last season – seems slightly more confident than his celeb partner, writing recently that “[Kirstie] is trying really hard to impress me! I must admit………I’m impressed!”
