Kirstie Alley sashays into a new role on self-titled show

December 4, 2013

Whether you remember her as the unlucky-in-love Rebecca Howe from Cheers, or as a sassy competitor on Dancing with the Stars, one thing you know about Kirstie Alley is that she definitely knows how to make an entrance. In undoubtedly another memorable role, Alley will be starring as an uber-famous Broadway star in her new show, Kirstie, which premieres tonight on TV Land. Her character, Madison, is surprised when the adult son who she put up for adoption shows up on her doorstep hoping to renew bonds with his long-lost birth mother.

The newly fit and fabulous Kirstie and the show’s cast—Rhea Perlman, Michael Richards and Eric Petersen—paid a visit to SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio to talk about the new show.

In this clip, Kirstie puts on her choreographer’s cap and shares who on the cast she thinks might have a shot at that coveted Dancing with the Stars mirror-ball trophy.

For the full SiriusXM interview, tune in to Entertainment Weekly Radio tonight at 6 pm ET.
