It's half-way through the season of Dancing With the Stars: the dances are becoming more complex, the stars are stressed and the competition is fiercer. With eight competitors left at the beginning of last night's (Monday, 21 October) episode and a cruel clause added to panic even the coolest of celebrities, who was eliminated this week?

The judges, Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli, decided a "Switch Up" improvisation dance should be added in order for the competitors to gain extra points. The music at any point in a couple's performance could be switched up so the dancers were forced to think on their feet - quite literally.

The Church Of Scientology Puts Its Foot Down On "Unfounded" Leah Remini's Missing Person Claims


Leah Remini

The Church of Scientology is on a mission to stamp out rumours that David Miscavige's wife has suspiciously disappeared amidst swirling allegations prompted by actress Leah Remini's missing person report.

Leah Remini

The organisation has said Ms. Remini "cooked up" the "unnecessary burden" for the LAPD as "nothing more than a publicity stunt." The statement provided by the Church is caustic and direct in its delivery, describing those who propagated the matter as "unemployed, anti-religious zealots who blog on the fringe of the internet." They also cite the police in stating that the missing person case, opened by Remini upon her own exit from Scientology, is now closed.

Leah Remini Paul Haggis

Leah Remini, the co-star of the comedy series King of Queens, made the conscious decision to leave the Church of Scientology in July this year, severing her nearly 30-year devotion to the controversial religious group. Almost a month after the New York Daily News broke the news of Remini's decision to leave the cult, the actress has since confirmed that she will be discussing all the intimate details of her life when she published her tell-all memoirs.

Remini's planned move into writing, which was first confirmed by Us Weekly, is due to begin almost immediately and will leave no stone unturned and no taboo ignored as she recalls a life spent with some of the most controversial religious figures in America. The actress and former Talk co-host confirmed with Us on Friday (2 August) that her book "will include [her] experiences, everything that's taboo to talk about."

Remini has revealed very little about her break from the Church of Scientology since her decision was announced over three weeks ago. It is believed the former King of Queens star left the church due to a number of disagreements with the Scientologists leader, David Miscavige. According to some reports, there has been tension between Remini and Miscavige since Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' wedding in 2006 (where Remini allegedly asked the whereabouts of Miscavige's wife).

Leah Remini Hints At Why She Left The Church Of Scientology


Leah Remini Tom Cruise John Travolta

Leah Remini has offered the first hints about why she publically left the Church of Scientology, telling People magazine no one is going to tell her how to think or who she can speak to.

Remini - best known for starring in 'King of Queens' - split from the controversial church after three decades, thanking fans and colleagues for their support though giving no real indication as to the reasons for the departure. However, speaking to People magazine at an event in California on Saturday (July 27, 2013), the actress said: "I believe that people should value family, and value friendships, and hold those things sacrosanct. That for me, that's what I'm about."

"It wouldn't matter what it was, simply because no one is going to tell me how I need to think, no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to," she added.

The King of Queens actress allegedly left the church following disagreements with its management. These disagreements are reported to have begun in 2006, at the wedding of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise.

Old School Review


Excellent
Some film ads make promises they can't keep, totally misrepresenting the final product. But the ads for Old School give you a good idea of what you're in for: an old man wrestling with topless coeds in KY Jelly, Will Ferrell in a cougar mascot outfit jumping directly into a hoop of fire, and Vince Vaughn doing an iron cross on rings with a lit cigarette clenched in his lips. Need more?

The good news is there's way more where that came from, and there's even some absurdity tossed in for the non-T&A, thinking crowd. So regardless of which side of the fence you're on, you'll laugh until you're teary. And every ounce of its comedic success can be attributed to its three stars -- Luke Wilson, Will Ferrell, and Vince Vaughn -- who through talent and chemistry manage to respectably pull off this otherwise ridiculous, often over-the-top comedy.
