Leah Remini is ready to talk!

The Dancing With The Stars contestant stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show and gave her first TV interview since defecting from the Church of Scientology in July.

So what'd she have to say? Well, the 43-year-old actress told Ellen DeGeneres, in the premiere episode airing Monday, Sept. 9, that after seven days of practicing with pro partner Tony Dovolani, she's hurting "everywhere," even in "places I didn't know could hurt."

"It's so much harder than I thought, and most people do say that, but it's true," she said.

Fortunately, Leah's got a great teacher, but she's not exactly making things easy for him! "Tony, who is my partner—who is fabulous and an angel, I think I have already broken his wrist," she says. "Because I hang on to him for dear life! He's like, 'Let go, let, go, let go,' and I don't even realize I'm doing it."

This should be good. We won't get to see Leah's wrist-breaking moves for ourselves when Dancing With the Stars season 17 premieres Sept. 16.
