So you think you can host So You Think You Can Dance Leah Remini?

Two weeks ago, Matthew Morrison and So You Think You Can Dance parted ways because the dancing competition judge sent a DM to one of the contestants. As everyone but him knows, you don’t do that, so Fox had no choice in the matter.

They also had no choices when it came to his replacement because today, they announced that Leah Remini is joining Twitch and JoJo Siwa as a judge on SYTYCD starting on Wednesday.

“I am thrilled to join SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE on its milestone 300th episode,” said Remini. “I look forward to guiding these incredibly talented artists through this competition as a fan of the show and a great admirer of dancers. I can’t wait to see the artistry that the contestants bring to the stage!”

Now back to why I think they had no choices? Because being on Dancing with the Stars for a season doesn’t make you an expert on dance. Don’t get me wrong, I love her, and I think she is a hoot, but I just don’t think she is a fit for the show. So, I have to wonder how many people turned them down before they to R’s in the Rolodex. Good thing she said yes because the following letter in the alphabet is S, and I bet Tori Spelling would’ve said yes.

One last note, I don’t get why they didn’t ask Nigel Lythgoe back. But that is me.


Leah Remini will guest host The Wendy Williams Show for two weeks
November 17th, 2021 under Leah Remini, Wendy Williams. [ Comments: none ]

Wendy Williams hasn’t hosted her show all season due to health issues stemming from her Grave’s Disease, so they have had guest hosts fill in for her. Leah Remini was the first one to do it, and she will be back to sit on the purple throne again for two weeks starting on November 29th with her friend Michelle Visage.

At this rate, it looks like Williams will not be back until at least 2022.

And that might be the last year she hosts her show. Sadly for her, the ratings have been good with the guest hosts. So, I wonder if Debmar-Mercury is considering replacing her permanently with one of the guest hosts in September. Would you blame them if they did? I wouldn’t. I mean, she has taken several leaves over the last few years, so I am sure they want a host they can depend on that will show up for work.


BTWF: Leah Remini for Mandee

Before Leah Remini played a model in Living Dolls, she actually was one for Mandee. How beautiful was the 14-year-old in that 1985 commercial?


Leah Remini will guest host on The Wendy Williams Show
October 14th, 2021 under Leah Remini, Wendy Williams. [ Comments: none ]

Wendy Williams has been dealing with complications from her Grave’s Disease and thyroid issues. Due to that, she has not been able to host her show this season. Therefore, The Wendy Williams Show has been in repeats ever since.

After several weeks of delays, the production company has finally decided that the show must go on. So, they will be having guest hosts fill in starting on October 18th until Williams is healthy enough to return.

On Monday, Bevy Smith, Michael Yo, Devyn Simone, and Elizabeth Wagmeister will get things started. Then for the rest of the week, Leah Remini will sit on the purple throne.

Personally, I think Remini would be the perfect permanent replacement. She is really personable, and you want to be her friend when she is on talk shows. To me, that is the most important requirement for the job.


Leah Remini, 50, is going to be a college freshman
May 21st, 2021 under Leah Remini. [ Comments: none ]

Leah Remini dropped out of school when she was 14 to become an actress, so she never went to college. However, even at 50, you are never too old to go back to school. That is why she applied to New York University, and she got in.

I am so excited, in tears and wanted to share this with you guys. For someone like me, a person who desperately wanted a higher education and options in my life, coming from a cult and a family who didn’t value an education, this is a very big day for me. This didn’t come easy. This is one of the last chunks of my life that I am taking back for myself from Scientology. It took a lot for me to take this step, for fear that I was not smart enough, not worthy enough, not able to do the work that will be required, my age…. I did it anyway with a lot of encouragement from a very special person in my life. I am ready to do the work and honestly, I’m scared shitless! And I am excited to start on my journey. It’s just never too late is it? Thank you to NYU @nyuniversity for believing in me. And thank you John @iescentralmass, you are an amazing man and anyone needing someone to cheer them on, to walk them through this (sometimes) intimidating process, who are scared to take this first step, should choose you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. #goafteryourdreams #dreambig

Congrats to Remini because this takes a lot of guts. She is proving to us that you can take your life back and live your dreams if you want to. You just have to push yourself, and you can get what you want.
