Leah Remini returned to Dancing With the Stars this week, but in a much different capacity than the last time she graced he ballroom floor. This time she served a guest host while Erin Andrews is off doing sideline reports at the World Series. Co-hosting with the show’s mainstay, Tom Bergeron, Remini was thrilled to return.
“So excited to be back on the show, even more excited I don’t have to dance!” she told E! News. “I hope ABC has a delay, gonna speak my mind!”
The King of Queens actress is known for sometimes saying things that border on inappropriate–hence her comment about a ‘delay.’ Most recently very outspoken about the Church of Scientology, from which she and her family defected, she boldly told the media that ‘everything the church taught me was a lie.’
Leah Remini had a few funny quips about the Dancing With the Stars contestants–including former Fresh Prince of Bel Air star Alfonso Ribeiro’s unfortunate groin pull.
“Let’s not discuss it any further. This is an ABC show!” she said.
Lots of tweets were sent in praise of Leah Remini’s appearance on Dancing With the Stars, and she addressed her followers with gratitude.
Erin Andrews should not come back to dancing with the stars to host… Leah Remini should just stay!
