Kirstie Alley and 'DWTS' Cast Chat with 'Extra'
"Extra's" Renee Bargh caught up with the new cast of "Dancing with the Stars." A slimmer Kirstie Alley first said she would never join the cast, and Renee wondered if Kirstie's dance with Mario Lopez had changed her mind, asking, "Did that inspire you to go on the show?" Kirstie admitted, "It did a little bit."
"DWTS" producers wouldn't take no for an answer, and kept pursuing Alley for the show... and it worked. "It's sort of like a guy that keeps asking you out. Alright, I'll sleep with you, okay? Whatever!"
Also joining the cast is talk show host Wendy Williams, who wore a giant disco ball ring and said, "This is not me being presumptuous that I'm going to win, although that's my goal. It's a good luck charm."
Tune in to "Extra" for all the rehearsals leading up to the big premiere on March 21.
