Report: Dancing with the Stars Officials Concerned Over Cloris Leachman

at . Comments

Cloris Leachman is entertaining and all - but Dancing with the Stars producers want her the heck off their show.

That's what a show insider told The Chicago Sun-Times.

"We thought it would be fun to have Cloris on... and expected her to maybe make it through one or two weeks," said the source. "But now it's gone from people being amused - similar to the way it was with Jerry Springer - to being downright concerned."

What do you think? Has Cloris Leachman's time come?

The staffer added that officials assumed Leachman would be a goner this week.

"Everyone assumed it would be Cloris and not Toni Braxton who would be eliminated [Tuesday]. There was even some gallows humor going around today [in which] people joked it must be a whole lot of CBS, NBC and Fox executives getting everyone they know to vote for Cloris - to try and wreck the show.
