‘Dancing With the Stars’ gets visit from dance doctor John Travolta

John Travolta made a surprise appearance on last night’s “Dancing With the Stars” to serve as Kirstie Alley’s “dance doctor.” Alley, who suffered a fall and a shoe malfunction in weeks past, told partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy she needed a second opinion. Doctor Travolta had the prescription:

1. Don’t drag Alley across the dance floor for long periods of time.

2. Switch out the Manolo Blahniks for sneakers, preferably high tops.

3. Turn up the romance factor between Alley and her beefy partner, Maks.

“Thank you. I’ll send you the bill,” the doctor concluded. And it was worth it: Alley’s performance of the fox trot went off without a hitch. Read about the rest of last night’s “DWTS” over at The TV Column.

Sadly, Travolta did not break out any of his signature moves from “Saturday Night Fever” or “Grease” during his consultation. I vote for John Travolta on “DWTS” 2012!

Watch the appearance below:
