Late last week, Cloris Leachman said it was “a miracle” she was still on Dancing with the Stars 7. Last night, like a piece of toast with the Virgin Mary’s image that was re-toasted, that miracle came to an end.
Characteristically, she refused to go. “I’m not leaving!” she said, but eventually, she did go. On Monday, the judges gave her just 15 out of 30 points, perhaps trying to get rid of her sooner than later, and Carrie Ann Inaba even said that she regretted that Cloris was still in the competition.
Conspiracy theorists may want to take note that her elimination comes the week after producers and cast members reportedly had enough of her, although they denied any animosity toward the 82-year-old. Of course, that was before Carrie Ann expressed outright hostility toward Cloris’ presence on the show.
