Cloris Leachman, DWTS

ABC/ Kelsey McNeal

Cloris Leachman is one helluva 82-year-old. Didya catch the divine golden gal on Dancing With the Stars, struttin’ through her fox-trot? Not a hip was out of place, way to go, babe. Especially loved the sass at the judges table. Clore might actually last a few more weeks in the competish, tho that might not be a good thing.

Our Desk Midwest sat next to Ms. Leachman at a popular steakhouse in Chicago quite recently. Said C.L. looked stunning for her age—didn’t look a day over Ali Lohan. She dined with a stylish older gal and two gents, who seemed like dear old friends. Their convo wasn’t hushed in the steak place, so our ears couldn’t help but overhear.

Leach-hon told her chums that her bod’s got a pretty problematic sitch—and her doc’s given her only a handful of choices. One is to go on medication, tho our source overheard her saying she doesn’t care. The other choice was cancel her appearance on Dancing With the Stars. Guess we know which way the lady swayed. We contacted Ms. L’s reps, but, so far, have heard nada back.

No doubt Cloris had to have a physical to get on the dance competish in the first place—why’d they let the doll go through with the show with physical complications? All in the name of good entertainment? We’re glad Ms. Leachman’s staying active—Lord knows if we get as old as 82, we wouldn’t have the energy to walk down Robertson, nonetheless ballroom dance. But take care of yourself first, ‘K, hon?
