Kirstie Alley to shun reality TV

Kirstie Alley wants to focus on her acting career

Kirstie Alley says she's done with reality TV.

The 60-year-old actress, who came second on Dancing With The Stars on Tuesday, said her time on the show has motivated her to return to acting with new focus and determination.

She said learning to dance on the hit US show "re-inspired me with all the things that I've had great success with already and sort of got complacent about."

Kirstie plans to take on a movie role next month. She's also looking for a new TV series and is considering Broadway.

She confessed she was sad that she and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy didn't win the series, in which football star Hines Ward was crowned champ.

Characterising herself as "not the average cupcake," she said her partner deserved kudos for making the oldest and heaviest contestant this season into a championship dancer.

A colleague who takes great pleasure in making everyone feel miserable should be reprimanded. Make it clear you aren't the only person who is suffering from their abuse. Explain how this bully is ruining morale. It's a system wide problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.More
