The "Dancing With the Stars" Season 17 semifinals had each of the remaining five couples performing two dances to two versions of the same song. It also marked the return of the Maks. Bad boy of the ballroom Maksim Chmerkovskiy came back buttoned up and in a bow tie, sat between Len Goodman and a thrilled Bruno Tonioli, and offered up his two cents as a guest judge and an unabashed supporter of the Pros. Too bad Elizabeth Berkley Lauren and Valentin Chmerkovskiy were voted off last week or we would have had the pleasure of witnessing another Brothers Chmerkovskiy interaction though Maks adorably held up a 10 paddle after his little brother danced with Witney Carson after a commercial break. Actress Leah Remini and Tony Dovolani lost a bit of the ballroom love as they were the latest couple eliminated from the competition. God bless Tony for resolutely keeping that frown upside down despite his less-than-pleased partner.

Even those who once considered her a friend have felt the brunt of her rants. Her outbursts especially intensified as her skin became noticeably thinner after the hit show The King of Queens left the air in and she was no longer working. Former close friends of Remini take her complaints and hostility toward the Church that began in with a huge grain of salt. It was always huge dramatic outbursts against people. This is just how she treated people.
