"Dear Sir ... after you have ass raped me there is really no reason to include 'I wish you the best' ... It's rhetorical." - Kirstie Alley, August 1, 2014

We're assuming she isn't making actual sexual assault allegations against former Dancing With the Stars partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and is merely joking.

Nevertheless, putting "ass raped" into any joke? Questionable at best.

Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy DWTS Picture

Recently on Watch What Happens Live, Maksim was asked about the formerly friendly relationship the two had during their great run on DWTS.

Maks, who advanced to the finals with Alley, and though they didn't win (he just retired from Dancing With the Stars after his first and only title), they were close.

No longer. Asked about their apparent falling out, he responded:

"She stopped getting along with me. I think the world of her. I'm not judging people by their religion. I'm Jewish. I don't really believe in science fiction, whatever."

After what appeared to be a relatively fluid and graceful foxtrot last night on the Dancing With the Stars season premiere, Kirstie Alley received surprisingly tough scores from the judges.

Fortunately, she found something positive to focus on: Tom Bergeron's face.

In what has to be the longest kiss in the history of Dancing With the Stars (which is saying something), Alley laid one on the host, who won a  Primetime Emmy award the previous evening.

Skip ahead to the 4:30 mark above, and hope that voters reward Kirstie and Maksim Chmerkovskiy for this effort. It's worth at least another point or two on top of her original 19.

Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are probably not dating, but they aren't doing anything to quell the growing speculation, either.

The DWTS partners were awfully cozy at her "All The Right Moves" event in NYC last night, following rumors that they may be an item.

Maksim was the Ukrainian Bachelor, but does not appear engaged now. He also called Alley "the best thing to happen to me in years!"

The outing also comes amid news that Kirstie dumped her 21-year-old (!) boy toy because she discovered he still lived at home with his mother.

Yes, Kirstie Alley has dumped rapper Shanice Boyd. Whether that clears the way for a romantic connection with Maks, 31, remains to be seen.

One thing's for sure. Since appearing as a finalist on Dancing With Stars, Kirstie Alley has a slimmer figure and a whole lot more confidence.

It's been a Dancing with the Stars season to remember.

The injuries. The drama. The personal stories that moved us. The moves on the floor that thrilled us. A cast of stars so engaging and evenly matched that the field was as competitive as it was entertaining from the start.

But there could be only one Season 12 champion.

Awaiting the Results

Somewhat surprisingly, given that she was just one point from perfection Monday and seemed like the dark horse to win, Chelsea Kane finished in third place.

That left Kirstie Alley, who ended up with five points less than the other finalists, but has been a fan favorite all season, up against Hines Ward for the crown.

Talk about anyone's game. Anyone willing to wager on this?

And the Season 12 Dancing With the Stars winner was ...

"We have the very young Chelsea. We have a very athletic Hines ... Kirstie is the exact opposite." - Maksim Chmerkovskiy on his Dancing With the Stars partner.

Maks has never been one to mince words, but rest assured, he didn't utter the above quote as a slight to Kirstie Alley, but to credit her for beating the odds.

At 60 and not exactly rail thin, she was the clear underdog heading into the Dancing With the Stars finals. But Maks said she belongs there and proved it.

Carrie Ann Inaba felt she "oozed" in her samba, and meant that as a compliment. It was rather sultry, earning her a 27 despite some technical hangups.

Later, in her freestyle, she defied the odds and did anything but play it safe with a daring, split-legged lift. Then the energy increased - with a cartwheel.

Will it be enough to vault her over Chelsea Kane and Hines Ward to claim the Mirror Ball tonight? She scored a 54 to their 59s. But you never know.

Watch her freestyle performance after the jump ...

Battling through adversity all season long, Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy fared well Monday night in the Dancing With the Stars semifinals.

Whether it's enough to get her through to next week's finale is unclear, but tonight's elimination will likely come down to Kirstie or Ralph Macchio.

Kirstie Alley's whole life has been a rollercoaster, as we learned last night. The ups and downs of this season of DWTS have certainly reflected that.

Leave it to Kansas-born Kirstie to speak frankly about her problems, whether she's bickering with Maks or baring her soul about her drug addiction.

After last night, her pair of 27s - and possibly a spot in the finals - seem well-earned. Watch her routines below and see if you think she'll make it:

Kristie Alley had another rough rehearsal, but rebounded and earned her first perfect score of the season on Dancing With the Stars Monday night.

Before the loquacious actress snagged a 10 for her Argentine tango with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, she literally fell off the stage during practice. 

Kirstie has been adhering to a strict 1,400-calorie per day diet to lose weight, but Maksim says she needs to get up to 2,000 calories each day.

“Usually what I do to lose weight is 1,400 calories, but I guess if I’m working out 5-7 hours I have to change it up a little bit," Alley admits.

Hopefully she does what she has to do to stay in the game. Watch both her performances from Monday below and see if you think she will:

On technical merit, Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy didn't win over the Dancing With the Stars judges Monday. But in terms of chemistry and fun?

Perfect 10s all around!

Maks pushed Kirstie to move her butt. She wanted a break. He told her to stop talking. She started crying. The tension rose by the second in rehearsals.

But the end, their jive to "La Bamba" was one of the night's most entertaining efforts. What it lacked in footwork, it made up for with fun - and kisses!

They tied at the bottom of this week's Dancing With the Stars scores after their 30 (out of 40), but will fans' votes keep them in the game? Probably.

With their undeniable chemistry, her personality and his shirtlessness, Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy seem like a lock for the Dancing With the Stars finals.

Last night, their samba "sent shockwaves through the airwaves" (according to Bruno) and Maks helpfully pointed out both his and Kirstie's posterior attributes.

Even better than their performance, which earned a solid 26, was the segment with her resting her head in his lap while Maks gave her encouragement.

Everybody, all together now: AWW!

After suffering back-to-back mishaps on Dancing With the Stars - falling two weeks ago, losing a shoe last Monday - Kirstie Alley hired a new coach this week:

John Travolta!

In a surprise appearance, the actor and friend of Kirstie told her to try hightops, first of all, to avoid another shoe malfunction. His next bit of advice?

Advising her and Maksim Chmerkovskiy to go somewhere and fix the "sexual tension" issue. We're sure he could convince plenty of other ladies to do this.

While his tutelage didn't help her Dancing With the Stars scores - she ended up near the bottom with a still-respectable 23 - his presence was a lot of fun overall:
