Partner Apologizes For Dropping Kirstie Alley On 'Dancing'

Maksim Chmerkovskiy is apologizing for dropping Kirstie Alley on 'Dancing with the Stars' Monday night.

This after Alley and partner Chmerkovskiy were dancing the rumba to 'Over the Rainbow' when the pair fell the floor. It appeared that Chmerkovskiy's leg gave out under Alley's weight, who also went to the floor.

The two quickly got up, with Chmerkovskiy wincing and still in pain, and finished the routine to earn a respectable 21 out of 30 points.

"My thigh just gave out. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry," Chmerkovskiy explained. "It has nothing to do with her."

"To all the fans... I'm sorry," he later said on Twitter. "It will never happen again and I will never 'fall'! To Kirstie Alley, you were flawless! In more ways than one! It's sore. It's fine. It's not a pain that's going to stop me."

"I salute you," replied Alley. "You are a gladiator, a champion. I'm honored to be your partner. Sort of a beauty in Live TV because anything can happen... gotta love it!!!!"
