Kirstie Alley hits the floor on DWTS

Usually when couples mess up on Dancing with the Stars, it’s the stars who are to blame, but this week one of the professionals, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, fell while holding partner Kirstie Alley, and dropped her on the floor.

Maksim suffered a charley horse early on in the routine, and the pain in his leg caused him to collapse, taking Kirstie down with him.  The two did manage to recover, though, and after getting decent marks from the judges, Kirstie tweeted that she was honored to be Maksim’s partner, calling him a “gladiator” and a “champion.”  Well, we’ll see if he’s got enough gladiator in him to propel them to DWTS champions.
