leah remini dancing with the stars week 1 'Dancing With the Stars': Leah Remini moves Jennifer Lopez to tearsLeah Remini, who has been in the news a lot lately after leaving the Church of Scientology, debuted on “Dancing With the Stars” with a fox trot with partner Tony Dovolani.

She says her two goals are “to lose weight” and “not look silly.” Those are two good goals, actually. And she definitely does not look silly. The fox trot is sneaky hard — it’s slow, but that means it’s easier to see goofs. Leah did alright. You can definitely see potential there.

And her gal pal from growing up together in New York, Ms. Jennifer Lopez, was in the audience to cheer her on, wiping away a tear after Leah’s dance was over. Aww!

The judges were complimentary. “I liked the foxy trot you put in, she went Miley Cyrus for a moment. I can’t wait for the twerking next week,” says Bruno, being kind of insane. But Carrie Ann adds that Leah is “sass and class” and Len calls her “clean and precise.”

The judges give her straight 7s for a score of 21. What did you think, “DWTS” fans? Video below.
