Does Kirstie Alley Regret Kissing Maks on Last Night's 'DWTS?'


In a word, Yes.  "DWTS" is down to only six couples this week, and as she explained to ET correspondent Mark Steines, Kirstie Alley has some regrets about getting caught up in the excitement of Monday night's dance.

Although the kiss was planned, it excited the ballroom to such a frenzy that Kirstie admits she "forgot what [she] was doing." She explains, "It's the first time in the whole season [she] got distracted by the audience," and although partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy agreed, he feels she "checked out" before the dance had even begun.

Hines Ward and Kym Johnson received their first "10" this week for their fiery Tango routine, overjoying Ward's competitive nature. He says he's having such a great time, he might take some of his new moves to the field and "waltzing, tango, paso doble - all of them" into the end zone.

Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff also received their first "10" of the competition, and in confessing that he "was jealous of the '10's' last week," Macchio grinned from ear to ear at as he re-lived the moment.
