Kirstie Alley on latest mishap: 'My blood sugar had dropped.' (But hey, she's down to a size 6!)

dwts-alley-fall

Dancing mishaps are nothing new to Kirstie Alley. First, partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy took her down when his thigh went out. Then she lost a shoe. Just when she thought she was out of the woods when it comes to embarrassing on-camera calamities, she falls off a stage.

In case you missed it, it was featured during Monday’s Dancing with the Stars rehearsal footage of the couple’s sultry Argentine tango. She was supposed to jump off a few steps, but instead almost face planted onto the hardwood floors –causing yet another mega cringe-worthy moment for season 12.

Said Alley after the show, “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.”

The actress blamed the fall on lack of sleep and an inadequate amount of eats. “That day was a weird day because I hadn’t slept for two days and I guess my blood sugar had dropped,” she explained. “That rehearsal day was long, like seven hours or something. I didn’t realize I had forgotten to eat. I didn’t realize it was 5:30. I had breakfast, but time went like that because we had two dances to learn.”

The actress admitted to consuming only 1,400 calories, but has decided to take Chmerkovskiy’s advice by upping it to 2,000. “He’s probably right. Usually what I do to lose weight, I eat 1,400 calories, but I guess if I’m working out five or seven hours then you have to change it around a little bit,” said Alley, who wouldn’t reveal how many pounds she has lost since being on DWTS. She did say she is down to size 4 and 6 dresses but joked “they’re sort of stretchy.”

While the actress’ third misfortune might have made viewers cringe, Alley said she “barely watched it”  while waiting backstage. “It’s was sort of akin to Maks and I being Olympic skaters, just as we were warming up we were wiping out all the time. So I didn’t take it too seriously.”

    size 4 -6 – LOL. yeah, right. no reason to lie, Kirstie. Your fans love you no matter waht.

    • Skinny girl

      There’s no freaking way she is a size 4 – 6.

      • Chichi

        Please, she forgot to add “1” in front of that “4” or “6.”

      • jul

        If she’s a 4-6, I’m a 3T.

      • Yeah

        jul- you just made me spit all over my computer. Classic!!

      • RK

        Size 46, right?

      • wha?

        @Jul That was the funniest thing I’ve heard all week! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA!

      • Nancy

        Size 6? In her dreams and she would have to eat 500 cals a day to get way, way down. I know, I’m trying hard and the weight just loves to stay where it is. Right in my gut and rear end. Argh.

      • Shelley

        OH jul, I love you!!!!

      • tardis 86

        It’s not a 14 or 16 either. She’s not there yet, but on her way, assuming she stays off the internet and ignores the creeps.

      • Drivel Lady

        I know. She’s definitely a 16. I’ve been both sizes, I know! Why does she say crazy stuff like that? She’s being a bad role model that way.

      • Marie

        She said she dropped 4 to 6 dress sizes, not that she is a size 4 or 6.

      • Bridesmaid

        I’m half her size (maybe just 1/3 her size) and can’t wear size 4 or 6. Kirstie, it’s okay to be honest with us about your dress size. Just don’t lie and expect us all to be stupid.

      • valerie

        i agree with you, shes maybe a 16 or 18 tops not a 4or 6.

      • suze

        Marie,

        She did say she is a size 4 or 6 in the article not that she dropped 4 or 6 sizes….

      • Jeanette

        I agree

      • sheppard

        Suze – no way she is a size 4 or 6 – and frankly who cares – I love Kirstie’s spunk, always have, but she doesn’t need to fudge on something that is so obviously not so!

      • regina

        Apparently your half-ass reading skills have successfully revealed a trailer-trashing side to your persona. She said they were “Stretchy.” No woman alive hasn’t depicted themselves slightly different than reality – whether it be a dress size or being completely pleased with something(such as a gift), Also,if you happen to be a woman making an ignorant comment like that(knowing that sizes vary greatly -especially in dresses- from one designer to the next-unless you’re sincerely out of touch with purchasing clothing from stores & instead dumpster-dive for the latest fashions)perhaps you should stay in your cardboard hut on the outskirts of town. And please, when you gather your thoughts again, be sure to rinse thoroughly and repeat before exposing flighty follicles.

      • NORMA JEAN

        WOW REALLY A SIZE 4-6 IN WHAT WORLD? IT IS SO NOT NECESSARY FOR ANYONE TO LIE ABOUT HER SIZE WE LOVE HER ANYWAY….LOVE THAT JUL…

      • whirlway

        @Nancy, If you are only eating 500 calories a day, you are literally starving yourself. Your body is telling itself to not let go of any fat, etc, because it doesn’t know if it is going to get any more food. Most people can get away w/eating 1400 calories a day and exercising and loose weight. It’s not just about the fewest amount of food you eat, you have to include exercise as well.
        No way is Kristy a size 4 of 6, maybe a 14 or 16. If you notice, after every performance, she is yanking @ her outfit right above the crotch area. Not very attractive.

      • Rebecca

        Lets get real here Kirstie, you are not a size 4 and will never be. You are looking good and should be proud at any size.

      • tbrown17

        Maybe 14-16?

      • Kat

        Superficial people get over it! Why do we care how much she weighs or what her dress size is? This is what is wrong with women. Why do we hate on each other? Gloat over someone’s size — big or small? Feel superior to her for catching her in a lie. Just stop!

        She’s a human being. We are *supposed* to be too. If you have to judge her, judge for what kind of person she is, not what she looks like. You demean all women — yourselves included — when you focus on the outside, not the inside.

      • LOL@Regina

        @Regina – Bitter much?

      • Bubbles

        Do you people have no humor? Do you not understand sarcasm? Why the heck does it bother you so much anyways what her size is? Do society a favor and look in the mirror at yourself. Good. Now smack the cr*ap out of yourself a few times for being complete morons and superficial A-holes!

      • Memaloose

        I am sure she meant size 4 – 6 SHOE size. Bloody hell!

      • AcuraT

        She was JOKING. She is a comedian for goodness sake. Have you ever seen her not joiking and being serious? Ever since she hit it big on Cheers she has been comic (not always funny, but always trying).

      • Ur crazy

        Why is Kristy lying? It’s not like we care? Maybe it’s her excuse to lie about being faint anytime. She is about a 12 to 14. Sorry Kristy your still buying clothes at Lane Bryant.

    • me

      When you pay a lot for your clothes they will put any size you like on the label.

      • Karin

        lmao…if not, there is always the bleach to erase that nasty 1 in front of the 6

      • morgan

        She was being funny, you know sarcasm, duh. She has a sense of humor.

    • Cheery

      Size 4 my ass. No, really–it’s a size 4 and I’m about the equivalent of one of her legs.
      Delusional heifer needs to SIT DOWN.

      • Erinna

        Wow, really? Heifer? Tell me, do you get out there and work out five to seven hours a day? Have you seen how different she is from the beginning of the season? If you’re trying to come off as a judgmental jerk, it’s working.

      • Cheery

        ^^^I don’t have to workout 5-7 hrs a day because I’m active in general and have never “let myself go.”
        So yes, mission accomplished.

      • Jennifer

        Cheery, it does sound like you take care of yourself, which is great. But “heifer” does seem a bit harsh.

      • lorie

        cheery , come on. dont be a hater cuz one morning you might wake up and your so called perfect body might not be. she is 60 yrs old and doing great.

      • mjinmd

        Maybe it would be better if you were to just shut up.

      • jeffgo5

        I’m sure you’re 62 yrs old too?!

      • Rhonda

        You are mean an classless.

      • Rhonda

        Cheery — You are mean and classless.

      • KP

        Cheery….that’s stupid screen name?? $20 bucks that your face is a disaster….at least Kirstie Alley can lose weight….

      • Jen

        Yeah, seriously … sure, I agree that there’s no way she’s a size 4 … but even if she’s a size 14 that’s still pretty average and that doesn’t equal “heifer.”

      • suzi

        Cheery – that comment is very mean and uncalled for – she is trying and there is such a thing as KARMA – so I would be careful what I say!!

      • Gem

        She looks great. Don’t put her down.

      • Meli

        Cheery may not need to work out, but her attitude certainly says she needs a bottle of Midol. Cheer up, Cheery, I’m allowing you the benefit of being this way once a month, instead of all the time like you probably are.

      • Terry

        Cheery, Kirsttie can gain or lose weight, but you will always be a hateful, spite filled, ugly on the inside b*#@h!

    • Tina

      Yeah, what Chichi said!! I love Kirstie but no way she is a size 6!!

    • Petunia

      Where is this store that puts Kirstie in a size 6? I wanna go there! I’d be a -2!

    • jenna

      Goes to show you how our of skew the sizing charts are if she thinks she’s in single digits. Bahahahahaha!!!

    • Diamond Girl

      I’m a size 8 and about 1/3 her size. Size 4-6, no way!! But she has lost weight.

      • jessica

        stand in front of a camera next to four other size 0 and 00 girls, and you’ll look as big as she does, Diamond Girl.

    • Deby

      She said she DROPPED 4-6 dress sizes – and I believe it, she’s a lot smaller now than she was at the start. Learn to read kids!

      • Rebecca

        Ummm, before critiquing others’ reading comprehension, start with yourself. The quote in the story says, “She did say she is down to size 4 and 6 dresses but joked ”they’re sort of stretchy.”

        Size 4 to 6 dresses, not down 4 to 6 dress sizes. We read it just fine.

      • KathyC

        Read it again she said she is down TO size 4-6. I think she is great, I could never do what she is doing but she does not have to lie about her size, you can see the weight loss but she is not a size 4-6.

      • Emma

        @KathyC…no, it doesn’t say down TO a size 4-6. You read it again.

      • Dot

        It does say down TO a Size 4-6.. It did imply that. But I agree we all know she would have to weigh like 125 pounds or less to be a size 4-6. And we all know she is at least 5’9. so at the height and if she was truely a size 6 TV or no TV she would look much thinner.. But I do think she is doing great, better then she has in years, and I am voting for her..

      • Terry

        Sorry, Emma, YOU need to read it again. She said “she is down to size 4 and 6 dresses.” She is trying too hard to lose weight; just the activity is good for her. She needs to keep things in perspective. The numbers “size 4 and 6″ don’t mean a thing in this new world of smaller numbers for previously larger sizes.

      • jaydee

        reread the article slowly. she said she is down TO size 4-6 dresses. she did NOT say she was down 4-6 sizes. as far as the stretchy comment. i don’t care how you stretched it, she can not get in a size 4,6,8 or 10 at this point. to even say this only puts her in a “stupid’ light. in my early 20’s, i weighted 108 and wore 2 and 4’s. she is not 108.

    • Margot707

      I’m not sure I believe she’s down to size 14 – 16 more or less 4-6. Unless that’s in “rich lady” sizes which let you think you’re wearing a size 8 when it’s really a 10-12.

      Regardless, it’s amazing that she’s held up so long. What she’s accomplished would be hard for someone half her age.

      • rabbit

        u dont have to be rich. lane bryant stores has single digit numbering for their clothes and plus size is their base consumer

    • Sadness

      It’s the Scientology size 6 – which in alien measurements. . . .

      • Sailor

        @Sadness… LOL!!!

      • gail

        hysterical!…..we should all convert.

    • KP

      she’s not a 4-6 but she did say they were stretchy haha…love her regardless of her size. Good for her for doing the show.

      • CheZ

        rabbit, have you ever even BEEN in a Lane Bryant store ? No, didn';t think so or you’d know they START at size 14 and actually run small in jeans especially and brands like DKNY and Seven. Yes, I am a heifer and I would know. Love Kirstie, but no way she’s a 6, even in a stretchy top maxi dress (although she has really good arms for her size)

      • Heffer Says

        Actually, until recently, Laine Bryant’s Right Fit Pants were size 1-5. So, techincally, she could’ve been wearing a 4-5 and not be lying.

      • Margaret

        Lane Bryant’s Right Fit pants were sized 1-8, with 8 being the equivalent of a 30/32, I believe. But I think Kirstie is saying she is down to a 4/6, which I also doubt (I’m a 22/24, so I’m not some skinny girl hating on her).

    • Robyn

      I can tell that she’s looking more fit, but there is NO WAY Kirstie is a “down to a size 6″. I wear a size 6 (5’7″ and 125 lbs).

      • Terry

        Actually, I have 2 pairs of pants in size 6, and I am 5’8″ and 150 pounds (they are NOT tight)! The new size numbers don’t mean a thing!!!

    • Karikata

      A size 6?!@#% GET THE PLUCK OUT OF HERE. If she’s a size 6, I’m a negative 5.

    • Robyn

      She didn’t say she was down to a size 4 to 6…she said she was down 4 to 6 sizes.

    • beth

      she said she is a size 4 or 6 give me a break

    • Tracy

      NNNNOOOOOO EFFING WAY she’s a size 6 or 8 or 10 or 12! What a liar!

  • kate middleton

    I like Kirstie, and I think all the emphasis on diet/weight on DWTS has been annoying. I wonder how much of that is something she wants (since she’s been so forthcoming about her weight struggles in the past) and how much is the producers creating this storyline.

    I think she looks great as she is, but she’s not a size 4 or 6 right now. I’d say she’s around a 10, perhaps a 12. I really do think she looks great as she is though – no need to talk about how many calories you’re eating on national tv.

    • me

      Honey, I like her too but even a 12 is kind.

      • kate middleton

        Perhaps….I’m going on the camera adding some poundage and her being smaller in person than she appears on tv. Either way – not a 4 or a 6!

      • S

        I’m saying a size 16/18. She was a 22/24 to start. I think her assistants are cutting out the tag. And it shouldn’t matter what size she is except that she MADE it matter by lying

      • Lillie

        S I agree, that is a perfect answer. I love Kirstie and am dang proud of her but she did make it matter and it takes from her accomplishments.

    • L

      I’m a size 10, and there is no freakin’ way Kristie is the same size! She’s done this before when she told people she was 130 pounds and, well, anybody with eyes could see that was a lie.

      • wha?

        I read somewhere that she said she is a size 6 after having lost 60 lbs and she wants to lose 30-40 more. Hellooo??? I’m a size 4/6 and if I lost 40 lbs, I’d be down to 90 lbs. That can’t be healthy.

      • Sadness

        Seriously L- she is a size 6 – so she is much skinnier than you

      • jessica

        You may not be taking height into consideration, wha?

    • Canuck_Jen

      The dress size HAS to be wrong. I wear a size 11/12 and I am ALOT smaller than Kirstie. I like Kirstie but someone must have erased the 1 from the front of her size 4s and 6s.

  • Jen

    Not only is she not a size six, but the Enquirer says she got a gastric bypass. I wouldn’t be surprised, since she did her little disappearing act to “Italy” last fall (and sent out that fake photoshopped pic of hers). And it’s all so she can sell her phony baloney weight loss product based on L Ron Hubbard’s formula. I don’t know about anyone else, but I don’t like being lied to and manipulated.

    • jk

      If you don’t like being lied to and manipulated, you probably shouldn’t read the Enquirer.

      • curly

        LOL! BAZINGA!

      • Jennifer

        JK, awesome!

      • Nedd

        Ba-zing!! Funny jk!!

      • lynnie

        LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • zoom5

        it’s not funny, it’s just the truth!

    • Sunflower47

      The Enquirer did not say she had gastric bypass. It stated that she was hoping to lose all her weight with DWTS but if she didn’t she would consider bypass surgery.

    • CCRYDER

      Come on! She has not had a bypass. That is just a big fat lie.

  • Lola

    I’m really happy for her and her achievements are impressive, although if I got to dance with Maks every day I could be a size 4 too! But on a selfish note, hearing that she is a size 4 and being a size 6 myself the whole thing is seriously screwing with my body image.

    • Rusty

      Don’t sweat it–she is absolutely not a size 4-6. She’s a 12 at best, but probably more like 14-16. It’s a shame because no one is buying it and it takes away from what is actually an amazing accomplishment. Being down to a size 12 from where she was is something to be really proud of–she really does look great. But size 4-6? Sorry, no.

    • jul

      Lola, NO WAY she is a 4 or a 6. Absolutely no way. Look at her!

    • RaivynSkye

      Lola, I know what you mean. I’m 5’6 and wear a size 12. I love Kirstie and hope that this will give her the confidence that it takes to maintain her weight loss but she’s taller than I am which means at the same weight she would wear a larger size (I have lots of tall friends an that’s the case). She is most likely a 14/16. I’m wondering if that may be a typo in the article.

      • Dorimifah Solatido

        Yeah, right, a typo. Not lying at all. And real bad lying at that.

  • Deborah L

    I think it is great that Kirstie Alley had the guts to go on DWTS and show that big girls can dance!!And to be paired with Maxim, Wow what heat they create. It is great that she has lost pounds while working out like she is. It happens to at least one contestant every year. I think there is a error though on what size she is in now because I am also a BBW and If someone told me I was wearing a size 4 or 6, LOL, I would just say, Well bless your heart…

  • Dayna

    The bit about the dresses being stretchy is a dead giveaway that she was joking about her size. Feel like I need to drag out the ol’ Simpsons sarcasm detector to help out those people who just don’t quite get a dry sense of humor.

    • marge

      I’m with you Dayna. Kirstie is all about dry humor, and it is a wonderful example of how we can be serious about something but not take ourselves too seriously. If all of us are able to move half as well as she does at the same age we would all be in great shape – no matter what size clothes we wear! Power to her!

    • fg

      Agreed, the stretchy thing really makes it seem like a joke. Kirstie is always poking fun at herself too bad everyone else takes it so seriously.

    • Kat

      Agreed. It’s a joke. People take way too much delight in tearing someone else down. Plus, as long as she’s continuing to control her calorie intake, exercise, and lose weight, who really cares what size she thinks she is? All that really matters (and it shouldn’t matter to any of US anyway) is that she is getting healthier and has no plans to stop now. It’s not like she thinks she’s a 6 and is ready to quit dieting. Anyways…I just sort of feel like more people ought to abide by the whole idea of live and let live.

      • gail

        omg..polly…meet anna..

  • Donna

    The fact that this woman keeps lying about her dress size at the same time she’s trying to hawk some diet product tells you everything you need to know about it…and about her.

    • suzi

      its a joke!! She is joking about it – geez, leave her alone!!

      • Dorimifah Solatido

        No, not a joke – a bad attempt to obfuscate a really bad lie. The woman is delusional – she knew she would have trouble attempting three steps in high heels, so she attempts a jump instead? She’s lucky she didn’t break an ankle – or the floor she landed on….

  • gumby

    Down to a size 4 and 6 my azzzz..

  • Disgusted

    PErsonally I think she is paying the judges to keep her on the stage there is simply no other explanation for this woman to have remained on DWT’S this long!

  • Disgusted

    Pesonally I think she has paid the judges under the table to keep her on stage! There is no other explanation as far as I can tell! And size 4 or 6 when clearly she is still a DBL X… come on does she think the world is stupid! just plain sad!

    • A

      Two alternative explanations:
      1) people actually like her, appreciate her ability to laugh at herself and feel that, despite being big, she can dance.
      2) people keep voting for them because Maks is hot and they don’t want to see him go.

  • UpAllNite

    Geez, she was injecting some of her classic self deprecating humor into her dress size. I guess too many posting on this board lack a sense of humor.

    She improved by leaps and bounds this week and I think her scores were earned, though I agree they weren’t in weeks past.

    • jk

      Well, if she’s being sarcastic than the author of this article didn’t get it either because the article’s title references her “new size” and not in a facetious way. I think you need to cut the commenters some slack because of that.

    • Kat

      I’d agree, except I’ve seen her say she’s that size in several interviews, with no indication that it’s a running joke. It may be a way for her to bolster her confidence as she continues to lose weight, though.

      • Dorimifah Solatido

        By deluding herself? How the hell does that bolster your confidence, when you know you’re lying? Too many fatsos here looking for any excuse to justify themselves….

  • Lilu

    Although Kirstie looks fantastic and definitely has obviously lost some weight since the start of this season, she is not a size 4-6. Maybe they meant she is down 4 or 6 dress sizes????

  • DW

    She has lost lots of weight and is dancing as well as any one else with the exception of Mark and Chelsie this week. She was joking about the size 4 to 6.

  • Buffy Freak

    She must shop at a store where they give sizes in square roots.

    • Tina

      LOL!!!

    • Silent E

      FTW!

  • Lily

    I won’t even comment on the dress size. It HAS to be a joke. Unless you’re just star-struck and celebrities are important to you, if you want to see some REAL talent and REAL dancing, watch So You Think You Can Dance. Nearing finale, these kids make DWTS dancers look like ME dancing, and that’s not good. People just gotta watch those celebrities, like they’re not just people too. The just are lucky and have a good job.
