“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.

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.”


Oooh. Not-so-subtle diss?

Days later, Kirstie apparently caught wind of what she apparently felt was Maks throwing shade on her and Scientology, and responded with the above Tweet.

Yeah. Not a lot to add.

For such an accomplished 63-year-old woman, one would think Alley needn’t get bent out of shape about such things, but maybe this is just her schtick nowadays?

If so … yikes.
