Kirstie Alley and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy have enjoyed seven weeks on the "Dancing With The Stars" stage, and somehow, Alley usually manages to do something beyond just dancing - she keeps figuring out ways to make it more physical.

Every week, it seems like Alley comes up with an excuse to kiss her partner on camera in front of millions of people.

"Women like people kissing Maks. I really do," she said.

Alley said she has become a courier because on Twitter, her followers are always telling her to grab him and kiss him.

"I am so afraid about what's coming. Let's keep the Twitter clean people," Chmerkovskiy said.

She said she felt the kissing worked on Monday night - maybe too well?

"When we did the kiss thing, and the audience went wild, I was like, 'Yes, oh my God, we're rock stars,'" Alley said.
