Kirstie Alley has renamed 'Dancing With The Stars' "mind f***ing with the stars" - because it is so stressful.

The former 'Cheers' actress is still in the competition and is confident she and her professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy can be crowned the winners, but she is finding it very tough.

Kirstie said: "This isn't a dance competition. This should be mind f***ing with the stars.

"I feel like it's our destiny. And then I want to get really, really, really good! I do feel like I keep getting better, and that's good, but I just want to be spectacular."

Meanwhile, Ralph Macchio and his dance partner Karina Smirnoff - who was dressed in a feline costume on the show last night (16.05.11) - have slammed judge Bruno Tonioli after he commented Ralph was "too rough with his pussy".

Karina said: "Today was just inappropriate and rude and uncalled for." She also claimed Bruno "wouldn't make eye contact" with her after the incident.

Ralph added: "That was just really an unprofessional thing to do. We went a little bigger than life. This was a chance to just break out and be funny and fun. [The judges] bought it with lots of others.

"It was a bad job by him. I'm sure he recognises that. I want to hear my criticism about how I can be better, not a comment that is just going to make a sound bite. And I get that it's a show, but I'm very protective of [Karina]. I bit my tongue, and she responded by saying, 'classy,' which was a very good thing to say. That comment was just airtime wasted."
