Kirstie Alley, the 60-year-old American actress, says she is quitting reality television following her appearance on Dancing With The Stars. Kirstie Alley, who finished second on last night's season twelve finale, says her performances have motivated her to return to serious acting.
Alley lost out to the eventual winner Hines Ward, but the actress insists her journey on this season's show has persuaded her to return to television acting. She said learning to dance on the hit show "re-inspired me with all the things that I've had great success with already and sort of got complacent about". The actress says she plans on taking a movie role as early as next month, and may also star in a new television series. In a previous interview with Aol Tv, Alley revealed, "I have a series being written for me right now that I really love the concept of.I also have some people writing a potential series for me for HBO". The 60-year-old, who has reportedly had offers to perform on 'Broadway', said she was "sad" that her and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy didn't win Dancing With The Stars. Describing herself as "not the average cupcake", Alley said her partner deserved praise for making the oldest and heaviest contestant into a championship dancer.
Back in 2007, Kirstie Alley was scheduled to appear in 'The Minister of Divine', based on the hit British comedy 'The Victor of Dibley' starring Dawn French, however, the project was not picked by Fox.
