“Saved by the Bell” star and current “Dancing With the Stars” contestant Elizabeth Berkley stopped by “Chelsea Lately” on Thursday (Nov. 7), where she and Chelsea Handler talk about the rigors of “DWTS” and how much they both love Leah Remini.

“We go way back, ‘Saved by the Bell’ at the beach club. … I love her, I want her to make it to the end. She’s putting herself out there,” says Berkley of her friend Leah. “She works so hard, Leah. We take breaks together and have fun, we help each other. We have each other’s backs.”

“I used to dance as a kid and of course I did a little movie … where I danced,” she laughs. “But it’s been a long time and I’m a new mom, I haven’t danced forever, so this is all reconnecting with something from childhood.”

The actress also says that she met her husband, actor/painter Greg Lauren, at a dance class.

“It was an amazing moment, it was slightly cheesy. … He was in the front row and I came in in the back row and we were doing rib-cage isolations in the mirror and we caught eyes and it was like — there should’ve been a track, like a movie track,” says Berkley.

“Dancing With the Stars” airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. Check out her “SBTB” jive here — she’s so excited.
