Poor Maks probably to this day has no idea what he truly meant to me…I certainly never set out to love Maks, and it shocked me that I ended up loving him to the degree that I did. To this day I have no idea the role Maks will play or not play in my life. Later in the book, another TV dancer gets his own chapter.
Chmerkovskiy was going away to travel in Europe, and he introduced to her his young protégé, Onik — then only 23 years old — and encouraged Alley to take him with her on her travels, as her new dancing partner.Alley and Onik ended up doing a series of charity dances in Europe that fall, and were photographed together placing flowers at the grave of Jim Morrison in Paris. After singing his praises and devoting an entire chapter in her book about relationships, she's no longer speaking with him.Kirstie Alley has been in the news again this week. During a call-in segment, Maks was asked if Kirstie ever tried to slip him some barley water and lure him to the dark side in an attempt to convert him to Scientology. So Kirstie, who’s clearly a 15-year-old high school bitch trapped in the body of a 63-year-old Spanxed marshmallow, found out that one of her friends is dating the best friend of a girl she’s in a fight with.
Leah escaped the clutches of Scientology last year, and her picture has been on Kirstie Alley’s dartboard ever since. Maks has just entered a totally sincere relationship with Jennifer Lopez, who just happens to be BFFs with Leah Remini.
In 2012, Alley published The Art of Men: I Prefer Mine Al Dente, a memoir about her relationship history, with the important men in her life each getting their own chapter.
Maksim Chmerkovskiy gets his own chapter, “The Art of Maks.” In 2011, Alley had been paired with him during her first appearance on the show, and she admits in her book that she became infatuated with him.
And that not only includes Chmerkovskiy, our sources tell us, but another TV dancer who had been an important part of Alley’s life. On Monday, July 8, 2013, we broke the news that Leah Remini had left the Church of Scientology.
Her disillusion with the organization had begun in 2006 at the wedding of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, and had grown over the years until the fall of 2012 and a meeting with Scientology leader David Miscavige.
She also put out some tweets that were designed to let Remini know that she’d made an enemy.
