Matt's Picks: March 21-24

Dancing With the Stars (Monday, 8/7c, ABC)
Here we go again. Time to strap on the heels, attach the sequins and apply the spray tan. TV's giddiest dance competition returns for a new season, with the outrageous Kirstie Alley (paired with fan fave Maks) the highest-profile celeb in the cast. Her competition includes the usual suspects: athletes (Hines Ward, Sugar Ray Leonard), C-list performers (Ralph Macchio) a rapper (Romeo), a reality "star" (Kendra Wilkinson), a flamboyant talk-show host (Wendy Williams), a supermodel (Petra Nemcova) and a Disney personality few of the target audience will ever have heard of (Chelsea Kane). The mirrorball isn't the real prize for most of the contestants. Instant (if sometimes fleeting) stardom comes with the flashy territory.

Dancing's Maks: Kirstie and I Will Be the Partnership to Be Remembered

Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all having a great 2011 so far. Are you ready for Season 12?

Everything is going great so far. As you now know, Kirstie Alley is my partner. We are having a blast. She is doing really well. What I like is that she's a lot better than I expected. I'll be honest: I came in and said to her, "You are out of shape." She said, "I am and I'm not hiding it. It's a great opportunity to get into shape. I don't want any limits. Do whatever needs to be done. It's a learning experience." I said, "Great!" And I came back with a routine and choreography like I would with anyone else and she gives me 100 percent in rehearsals every day.

Kirstie has a lot of ...

Kirstie Alley: Dancing Queen

Kirstie Alley

When Kirstie Alley stepped into the lead female spot on the hit sitcom Cheers, her fearless, bawdy, neurotic energy thwarted all predictions that she'd never fill Shelley Long's shoes. She even earned an Emmy. Since then, Alley has continued to catch the world off guard by segueing into feature films, both arty and mainstream (Deconstructing Harry, the Look Who's Talking movies), headlining popular post-Cheers series Veronica's Closet and making a name for herself as one of the most unapologetic of Scientology's brethren. Then, when her weight ballooned at age 53, she used her indomitable spirit to turn her bathroom-scale struggles into a new branch of her career: She's been a Jenny Craig spokesperson; invented her own weight-loss program, Organic Liaison; starred in a semiautobiographical Showtime sitcom, Fat Actress; and to show what it's like to be an overweight celebrity single mom of two teenagers — William True and Lillie Price — she welcomed a reality-TV crew into her hectic home for A&E's Kirstie Alley's Big Life.

Charlie Sheen's Fake Twitter Account Shut Down

Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen's reps are racing to shut down a new Twitter account that claims to belong to the embattled Two and a Half Men actor. Someone using the Twitter handle "@ciestevez" and the name "Carlos Estevez" (Sheen's real name) recently joined the social media site.

The Twitter page also uses a photo of Sheen sitting next to Men co-star Angus T. Jones and contains just one post: "Last I counted I had four beautiful children, Kirstie." The post would seem to be in response to Kirstie Alley, whose Twitter account is one of ten that "Carlos Estevez" is following.

But there's one problem: This isn't really Sheen... read more
