‘DWTS’: No Pity for the Old Biddy
Cloris Leachman is discovering that flaunting one’s geriatric cleavage will only get one so far on Dancing With the Stars.
One judge lashed out a the 82-year-old actress for coasting on her charm after an uninspired cha-cha-cha routine on last night’s DWTS episode, reports MSNBC.
Carrie Ann Inaba reminded Leachman and partner Corky Ballas of failed contestants past, scolding, “We lost Toni Braxton for this.”
Ooh; a low blow, and one that was greeted with a sympathetic chorus of boos from the studio audience. Viewer loyalty may keep Leachman afloat, despite a dismal score of 15 points.
