Cloris Leachman, 82, Hangs Up Her Dancing Shoes (Photo Gallery)

Cloris Leachman, 82 year old comedian and actress, has been the bell of the ball on this season's Dancing with the Stars, but she has reached the end of the line.   Leachman, always going for the laugh, allowed herself to be dragged all over the dance floor by her professional partner Corky Ballas, who is considered a Saint by many for his good natured efforts.

Leachman resonated with her voting public who continued to bring her back as other talented celebrities bit the dust.  There were rumors that soap star Susan Lucci was furious when Toni Braxton got the boot while Cloris remained a viable contestant.  Even judge Carrie Ann Inaba was vocal about that twist of fate.

Whether you agreed with her overlong stay on the program, she was amazing in her comedic shtick that provided some great ratings for the show.  It appears it will be all about dancing from here on out.

Thanks for a great ride Cloris.  You Rock!
