Contrary to the story that ran in The Chicago Sun Times this past Thursday,which stated Samantha Harris and Susan Lucci are tired of the Oscar-winning actress’ over-the-top antics on the show, the Dancing With the Starsladies set the record straight and told PEOPLE that they adore her.
“This story could not be further from the truth,” Harris told PEOPLE. “I adore Cloris Leachman and have had so much fun working with her this season. She even peeks into my dressing room each night, on the way to the set, to say hi. She’s wonderfully entertaining and I love how she keeps us all on our toes!”
“It’s a ridiculous rumor,” The All My Children star told PEOPLE, adding, “I adore Cloris. We are very supportive towards each other. I enjoy her and we have wonderful conversations all the time.”
Be sure to watch Dancing With the Stars Tonight as the dancers perform their first group dance…A Hip Hop routine. I cannot wait to see Cloris on the floor with even more attitude than she already has shown us!
The show airs at 8 PM ET on ABC!
