Cloris Leachman may have wowed audiences and fans with her wise-cracking remarks and quirky moves on Dancing with the Stars, but she also proved she’s won the love of her fellow dancers.
Following her hospitalization and treatment for symptoms of pneumonia, Leachman’s fellow DWTS castmates are rallying behind the 82-year-old Oscar winner, making sure she gets the rest she needs.
"I spoke to Cloris today…She sounded okay," Derek Hough told Extra. "She’s in good spirits and I just hope my girl gets better. I love her."
Lance Bass and partner Lacey Schwimmer, who sailed to the top of the leader board during last night’s competition, also had warm wishes for Leachman.
"Cloris, I got you some chicken noodle soup with your name on it! I’ll bring it over!" Lance said. Lacey laughed, saying, "Knowing Cloris, she’s going to be back with rhinestones next week. You watch." Bass adds, "Kicking back whiskey. She’s fine!"
Leachman sought medical attention late last week reportedly due to pneumonia. On Monday, her rep confirmed the Oscar winner had sought treatment for a "bad cold" and was home recovering well.
