Maksim revealed to Us Weekly about why he decided to return to DWTS after sitting out two seasons. “I was on tour with my brother Val this summer. I finished, dillydallied for a while, and I was like, “I want to move a little! So, short of taking f–king salsa lessons, I might as well go do Dancing With the Stars!” My tenure on DWTS was constantly tumultuous. There was always negativity. But this tour was a very cathartic experience. It focused on life through dance, how we got here. Things that bothered me before no longer did.”
I think we all can agree that Kirstie Alley's middle name these days is TMI. Promoting her new book The Art of Men (I Prefer Mine al Dente), the Dancing with the Stars contestant has been dropping bombs about her life and loves all over the media. Someone needs to put a muzzle on her. STAT!
I'm not sure which recent story is the best. There's the tidbit about John Travolta being the love of her life, her forbidden feelings for Patrick Swayze, and, of course, her giant cocaine addiction. Where to begin? Where to begin?

I have to admit I love Dancing With The Stars partner photos. Oh, lord the cheese! It’s better than funnel cake at the county fair (oh which I am desperately craving right. now). And what’s better than regular DWTS photos? ALL STAR VERSIONS!
ABC just released the first batch of our favorite cheese ball professional dancers and our favorite desperately seeking a return to relevance ‘celebrities’!
Curiously, Maksim Chmerkovskiy (currently under fire for allegedly slapping former partner Hope Solo during last season’s rehearsals) and Kirstie Alley‘s photo is missing for the bunch! Kiristie tweeted: “We haven’t shot ours yet..We shoot next week..:) been gone”
Also, ABC is still stringing us along for who will be the lucky 13th dancer. I just heard a rumor that Kate Gosselin was added to the mix! Just kidding… but who doesn’t crave another dose of her insane bitchiness and the gossip that surrounds it?
Behold the glamour below! Let’s get judgey, shall we.

Going into the final results show last night, Hines was tied with Disney starlet Chelsea Kane for the top spot. He also faced competition from actress Kirstie Alley, who despite being a few points behind, was a fan favorite.
Not so surprisingly, coming in third place was Chelsea, 22, and her partner Mark Ballas. This left Hines, 35, and Kirstie, 60, to battle it out for the
dreadful mirror ball trophy!
Ultimately, Hines was crowned the winner of DWTS season 12 and he made certain to thank his partner Kym Johnson. “I started this competition, I never thought I’d be in the finals, but I owe it all to Kym,” Hines said. “She’s an amazing teacher. I want to thank the judges for giving us their constructive criticism to help me get better each week. But also I want to thank all the fans.”
Runner-up Kirstie also thanked her partner/hotness Maksim Chmerkovskiy for helping her through the season. “It’s the most extraordinary adventure I’ve ever been on in my life,” said Kirstie, “and I want to thank…I love Maks.”
The three finalists all appeared on Good Morning America this morning. Hines also becomes the second NFL player in the history of DWTS to take the title. The only other player to accomplish the feat was Emmitt Smith in season three.

It was finals night on Dancing With The Stars as the three remaining celebs danced their hearts out!
The remaining finalists had to dance two dances last night, a regular dance and a freestyle routine. First up was Disney starlet Chelsea Kane, who danced a sultry samba with partner Mark Ballas for a score of 29. Kirstie Alley and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy also performed a samba for a score of 27. “It could have been a little bit crisper, but it was a lovely job and deserving of being in this final,” said judge Len Goodman of Kirstie.
It was time for the freestyle dances with Chelsea and Mark earning a perfect score of 30 for their “electrifying” hip-hop and Latin-inspired routine. It was then Kirstie’s turn and her freestyle with Maks started of slow before picking up speed, lifts included and all. Kirstie earned another score of 27. “You have become the poster child for life as it should be lived at 60 years old!” said judge Carrie Ann Inaba.
Hines was last but definitely not the least with his freestyle, and similar to Chelsea, he also earned a perfect score of 30! To sum things up, Hines and Chelsea are currently tied for first with a total score of 59 each, but don’t count Kirstie out just yet! She is a fan favorite after all and can still pull out a win.
Below are the full scores from last night –
Chelsea & Mark: 59 (29, 30)
Hines & Kym: 59 (29, 30)
Kirstie & Maksim: 54 (27, 27)
