'I haven't been eating enough': Kirstie Alley decides to increase 1,400 calorie diet after another Dancing With The Stars fall

It seem to have been one disaster after another for Dancing With The Stars contestant Kirstie Alley.

And now the 60-year-old Cheers star is blaming her latest mishap - a fall during rehearsals - on low blood sugar and not eating enough.

In behind the scenes footage which aired last night, Kirstie was seen taking a tumble after jumping down some stairs while practising the Argentine Tango with partner Maskim Chmerkovskiy.


Ooops: Kirstie takes a tumble during rehearsals for last night's Dancing With The Stars


Over tired: Kirstie Alley claimed last night she hadn't slept or eaten enough before her fall in rehearsals for Dancing With The Stars

'When I fell off the stage, I [saw] three stairs below me and I started going into slow motion and in my mind, I go, ‘okay there are three stairs, you have on heels, jump bitch’ because you’re either going to break something or you’re going to take control of this and that’s why I jumped,' she explained.


She went on to claim that the incident was the result of sleep deprivation and not enough food.

'That day was a weird day because I hadn’t slept for two days and I guess my blood sugar had dropped,' Kirstie said.

'That rehearsal day was long, like seven hours or something. I didn’t realize I had forgotten to eat. I didn’t realize it was 5:30. I had breakfast, but time went like that because we had two dances to learn.'


Final four: The couple scored 53 points out of 60 for their Argentine Tango

Kirstie backed up her dance partner who had obviously already told her she needed to eat more.

'He’s probably right. Usually what I do to lose weight, I eat 1,400 calories, but I guess if I’m working out five or seven hours then you have to change it around a little bit,' said Kirstie, who had previously lost 45 lbs as the Jenny Craig spokesperson.

The star has fallen previously on the show when Maskim failed to support her during a live performance and several weeks later she lost a shoe during another. 

The live results show tonight will reveal if Kirstie has made it through to the final four after getting 53 points out of 60 from the judges last night.
