If women aren't already jealous of Kirstie Alley for spending hours dancing with the hunky Maksim Chmerkovskiy, a recent Twitpic sent by the professional dancer himself may just send them over the edge. Looking fit and sweaty, Chmerkovskiy sent his partner some words of encouragement. "Hey @kirstiealley I'm almost ready for you and for tomorrow….. LOL,” he tweeted on Sunday, before their quick-step performance on Monday night.

The photo must have worked. The duo continued to impress the judges, and are currently ranked third with 43 total points, behind only Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff and Hines Ward and Kym Johnson. —EMILY EXTON
