Where are your dancing shoes, Kirstie Alley? New contestant  kicks off her heels at Dancing With The Stars launch party

Kirstie Alley has just been named as one of the cast members of season 12 of Dancing With The Stars, but already she is suffering from wearing the high heels.

The actress was pictured leaving STK restaurant in West Hollywood last night barefoot, obviously unable to spend another second in the uncomfortable shoes.

The former Cheers star looked lovely in a one-shoulder purple gown which worked well with her curvy figure.

Unhappy feet: The 60-year-old actress is seemingly already weary of the high heels and kicked off her shoes to go barefoot

The long flowing dress initially failed to reveal she had kicked off her heels, but on closer inspection it showed she was walking the dirty streets with nothing on her feet for protection.

Fans of the show will be keen to watch Kirstie's journey on the hit dancing show.

Since her days as the bombshell Rebecca Howe in Cheers she has famously struggled with her weight.

Her battle with overeating and yo-yo dieting will be sure to add an extra element to the show and at 60 she is the oldest contestant taking part.

New mother Kendra Wilkinson also attended the launch party last night and looked to be in great shape after famously battling to lose her baby weight after having her son Hank last year.

Wearing a black ultra-mini sequinned dress with a plunging neckline, the former Playboy model looked happy and delighted to be part of the show.

The line-up of season 12 of Dancing With The Stars was confirmed last night and other celebrities taking part in the ballroom extravaganza will be talk show host Wendy Williams and the original Karate Kid Ralph Maccio.

Tragic supermodel Petra Nemcovia, boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, rapper Romeo and Disney star Chelsea Kane are also confirmed.

Football star Hines Ward, controversial radio personality Mike Catherwood and WWE wrestler Chris Jericho complete the lineup.


Competing to win: Kendra Wilkinson and Kirstie Alley will compete on this season of Dancing With The Stars, it has been confirmed

While some of the stars are household names, others will be unknowns to a large portion of the audience.

Others have experienced huge fame, but now find their career needs a kickstart.

The cast was announced during ABC's The Bachelor on Monday night by DWTS hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke.

'Forget the rumours. The moment of truth has arrived,' Bergeron exclaimed.

Alley suggested the contestants' focus would be to 'try not to fall on our butts the first week out. That's what I'm going for.'

Leonard had a holistic description of his competitive approach.

'I think it's all psychological. I think it's spiritual,' he said. 'I think it's all the mental preparation.'

Quipped Bergeron: 'Have you ever watched the show?'


Ready for their dancing shoes: The contestants are announced

Among those sure to prove popular is former Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson, who now has her own reality show Kendra.

At just 25 the blonde, a sports fanatic, is sure to prove an early favourite to take the title.

Talkshow queen Wendy Williams is sure to be another favourite contestant. The 46-year-old's show will go on hiatus while she competes for the trophy.

A contestant sure to touch hearts is tragic supermodel Petra Nemcovia, 31, who lost her fiancé in the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami.

Petra herself suffered a broken pelvis and serious internal injuries and survived by clinging to the top of a palm tree for eight hours.


Here come the stars: Talk show host Wendy Williams and boxer Sugar Ray Leonard

Petra has since thrown herself into charity work, rising money for the ordinary civilians who lost their homes and livelihoods.

She was not at last night's unveiling as she was speaking at the United Nations, it was revealed.

Maccio, 49, was in his early 20s when he found worldwide fame as Daniel LaRusso in The Karate Kid in 1984.

He went onto star in sequels Karate Kid, Part II and The Karate Kid, Part III, but his fame subsided with age and today Maccio has occasional parts in TV shows.

From the world of sports comes boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, WWE wrestler Chris Jericho, and football star Hines Ward.


Former Karate Kid Ralph Macchio and rapper Romeo

Amongst the less well known contestants is Chelsea Kane of the Disney Channel's Jonas and controversial radio personality Mike Catherwood.

One person who will not be taking part is ex-Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnel

O'Donnell said last week that she had been invited to compete on the 12th season of the show.

But the Republican and tea party favorite said she wasn't sure she should accept because she has two left feet and a book about politics to complete.

O'Donnell said on her website that she was honoured to be invited but that she would instead work on her book.

Other rumoured contestants had included Tiger Woods' ex-wife Elin Nordegren.

The celebrities' professional dancer pairings will be revealed on Wednesday. They have just three weeks to prepare before the show will return to screens on March 21.
