Kirstie Alley 'disconnects' from not one but two men over their friendship with Leah Remini - 2014-08-01
Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley, in happier times Kirstie Alley has been in the news again this week. Her TV Land series Kirstie was cancelled after one season, but the really hard shock came from her former Dancing With The Stars dance partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who revealed on the Bravo network that the two aren't speaking anymore.
Chmerkovskiy implied that Kirstie had ended their friendship because of his association with Leah Remini, who left Scientology last year and has been pretty public about it.
"I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can't be associated with. I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is," he said on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. And then he made it even more plain that the dispute was based on Alley's fervent connection to Scientology.
