News of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver's split
was fresh on the minds of the "Dancing with the Stars" cast last night, and Maria's close friend Kirstie Alley
had a few words of understanding and encouragement for the newly separated couple.
Kirstie recalls her own experience with separation and divorce, calling it a "sad" time, and although the power couple has "raised beautiful children," they now have to "decide what to do with each other," adding that she's confident "they'll make the right choice."
Partner Maksim shared in Kirstie's sadness, saying that the break-up was unsettling because it "demolishes the idea that [marriage] works."
Hines Ward and Kym Johnson found the news of the couple's separation a surprise, and called the end of their marriage "sad." Kym confessed she didn't even hear about the news until now because she's been "so caught up in the dancing."
Watch the video to check out more backstage action, including an interview with "SNL" viral sensation, Michael Bolton, who comments on his recent digital short.
