“I thought it was rigged,” Michelle Stafford (Phyllis, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) tells Soaps In Depth. No, the actress isn’t talking about the Daytime Emmy pre-noms, but rather Season 12 of DANCING WITH THE STARS. On Tuesday, Stafford’s pal, Kirstie Alley, came in second, losing the coveted mirror ball trophy to Hines Ward, a professional football player with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Stafford feels that that Alley should have won for a variety of reasons, not the least of which was the phenomenal progress that she displayed during the course of the ABC reality competition series. “Let’s get really down to it! Who could do [what she did] and get to the end and have all the snafus and other stuff?” Stafford says of her pal. “She’s the hottest one on that floor — and the sexiest! You can quote me!”
What do you think, readers? Did Alley deserve to win? Weigh in below!
