Kirstie: “We’ve Become Freak Show”

“We’ve become the freak show. The freak show is good but we need to take the dancing up a notch.” That’s Kirstie Alley, commenting about her mishap-prone “Dancing with the Stars” partnership with Maxim Chmerkovskiy. (I can never read the word “Maxim” without thinking of Patricia Neal‘s commercials for Maxim coffee. The one above begins: “Actress and housewife Patricia Neal.” I guess it wasn’t enough to be an Academy Award winner. Even in the 1970s women had to be housewives to sell products to middle America.)
