'DWTS' Backstage Feuding Could Cost 2 Fan Favorites the Competition

OMG 12

dwts season 17 cast

Uh-oh. Things may look all happy and rosy on TV as far as how well the contestants on Dancing With the Stars season 17 get along -- but behind the scenes, it's another story.

Supposedly there's a feud between Jack Osbourne and Leah Remini. No, it doesn't have anything to do with her recent exit from Scientology.

Apparently Leah blames Jack's mom, Sharon Osbourne, for why she was fired from The Talk last summer -- and it's making things all sorts of awkward between her and Jack.

One source says, "Jack goes out of his way to avoid her during rehearsals ... and when he does see her, he refuses to even acknowledge her."

Ouch. So much for cast members being real and authentic while cheering for each other from the sidelines after each performance. (I knew they were seething underneath those forced grins.)

This may be nothing but a rumor -- but given Leah's departure from The Talk, I'm sure having Sharon in the audience each week does make things a bit uncomfortable and could possibly create some tension between her and Jack. I mean, it can't be easy for her to get out on that dance floor every Monday all while having her ex-colleague sitting there watching her from the front row.

And put yourself in Jack's shoes for a second. If there is any sort of bad blood between Leah and Sharon, it would make sense for him to try and steer clear of her backstage. Obviously his loyalty lies with his mom -- not his DWTS co-star.

Hopefully for the sake of the other contestants and viewers, Jack and Leah will do their best to be civil to each other and try and forget about any animosity between them. It would really be a shame if they wind up creating so much drama that they stress themselves out to the point of it hurting them in the competition.

Do you believe that Jack and Leah are feuding?

Leah was on "The Talk" for one season.  It has just started the 4th season, I believe.  It is time she let this drop, it is in the past.  I always felt sorry for her and for Holly for losing their jobs, but she has no right to take it out on Jack.  He had nothing to do with it.  It is time she get a life and look into the future.  Leave Jack alone, already.

For her actions toward Jack, she will not get my votes, they will now go to Jack.

Best thing in the world for The Talk was firing Leah and Holly!!  The show is now watchable and enjoyable!!!  When they were on i could not get the channel changed fast enough!!! move on Leah...

Leah is very insecure and because of this, she comes off in a negative way. I like her. Felt she was treated horribly by The Talk. I immediately felt sorry for her having Sharon in the audience. Awkward!!! She needs to hold her head up and be confident. It's over and... It's NOT Jack's fault. Be the classy person and hold your head up and be corgial!

 I have been routing for Jack, Keep your head held high there man. I hope that I am speaking for all when I say this your the best.

Leah was also on Saved by the Bell for a while with Elizabeth Berkely. Hopefully we'll get some clips at some point.

Doris why would you automatically assume that Leah is the blame? Could it not be rumors like the writer said? Could it possibly be that Sharon has started rumors that has made Leah uncomfortable? Why would you go so far as to give all of your votes to one party in this rumor while chastising another party in this rumor. You should think about this.

I`m not a fan of Leah`s and would be happy to see her go sooner rather than later!
