Kirstie Alley, 60, is teamed up with Maksim Chmerkovskiy and wears a black flowing gown with an embellished top. The Fat Actress star says she is looking forward to losing weight in the competition. “I’ve lost 60 pounds, and I have 30 or 40 more to go. I think with this strenuous, rigorous dance schedule, I think it’s gonna work. It’s exciting,” she said.
And what does she think of her pro, Maks? “My partner says I’m slow,” she told UsMagazine.com. “He calls me Grandma — G for short! I call him M — for mean!”
Kendra Wilkinson, 25, is paired up with Louis van Amstel and showed plenty of skin in a white fringed mini-dress. “I can’t look too sexy,” the former Girls Next Door star said. “That’s the key, you know. I’m already known as the Playboy girl, so I can’t go out there and do that. I have to be ABC appropriate!”
Who does Kendra think is her biggest competition on Dancing With the Stars? “I’m worried about the Karate Kid [Ralph Macchio], the wrestler [Chris Jericho] and the boxer [Sugar Ray Leonard], because it’s all about brainwork with dancing and they have it already,” she said.
“They’ve been choreographed before and I haven’t! I’m all about freestyle and shaking my butt! That’s all I got! And I think Kirstie Alley wins the popularity vote; she has the most fans, I think.”
