Kirstie Alley says 'Dancing With The Stars' is 'breaking me'

04/12/2011 by Kristina Lopez

Spoiler alert! After two weeks of mishaps, which includes a fall and almost losing shoe mid-dance, Kirstie Alley and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy survived another round of "Dancing With The Stars" eliminations on Tuesday night.

"I'm not on here to be stupid, honestly. I'm on here to do well," Alley told George Pennacchio of KABC Television, OnTheRedCarpet.com's parent company after the show on Tuesday. "I'll work harder this week and I'll glue my shoes on and take precautions."

The 60-year-old actress seems to be feeling some of the pressure from the competition. "This show is breaking me. If I had balls they would be broken by this show because this show humbles you," she said.

"I'm sort of slightly good at most things I do. So I don't have to work that hard -- and you really have to work hard on this. It doesn't matter if you're slightly good. It humbles you," She added. "I don't suck this much at anything, so it's pissing me off. I need to take it up about 50 notches and then I'll be fearless again."

The actress also wanted to send out a message for the fans keeping her and Chmerkovskiy in the competition despite their gaffes. "I want to thank everybody who voted for us, honestly, because, seriously, it's like being married to someone through richer or poorer, better or worse and I'm going to try to be richer and better," she promised.

As for next week's dance Alley says she'll be doing a Fox Trot "with a kinky twist."
