“Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars” celebrity Kirstie Alley shocked host Tom Bergeron — and TV viewers — when she gave him a steamy on-camera kiss in honor of his winning an Emmy.
After the show, Kirstie told reporters why she planted the smacker on Tom, who was named TV’s best reality show host at the Emmy Awards Sunday night, the day before “DWTS’s” big premiere.
“He won the Emmy. He needed to be rewarded,” she said. “I just wonder if people know I kissed him because of the Emmy. It was so loud I thought, ‘Oh my God, did they think I was just making out with Tom just for no reason?’”

When asked how Tom was as a kisser, the “Cheers” comedienne joked, “He totally had his tongue down my throat. I was like, Tom, hold up, dude. Hold up. No.”
Her outrageous partner, pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, then joined in the fun, joking to xfinityTV, “I had both hands on his ass at the same time. That’s why the look of surprise was nothing to do with her. I mean, I have big hands. [He has] small, very tight buttocks.”
