A slimmed-down Kirstie Alley has been teasing fans on Twitter about her European travels with a “mystery man” – but is he a new love interest?
In fact, her travel companion is her dance partner, Serge Onik, a former So You Think You Can Dance contestant and student of Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Alley, 60, last season’s Dancing with the Stars runner-up, has been leisurely dancing her way across Europe with him. (Chmerkovskiy was Alley’s professional partner on show.)
“Mystery man And I slink out of Paris today 2 covertly take Rome by storm…stay tuned..Cougar Maximus,or just friends ? I luv my silly life!” the actress Tweeted on Thursday, after being spotted the day before at the Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, where they visited Jim Morrison’s grave.
Onik replied on Twitter: “@kirstiealley mystery man loves u one more show left on this crazy ass road show.”
It may just be a professional relationship, but it’s not as if Alley isn’t looking for Mr. Right.
“For me, it’s all about love,” she told PEOPLE recently. “I wasn’t looking for the right thing before. … I want someone who has my back.”
