Harris said a recent article that alleged Leachman's ongoing antics on the popular ABC series had begun to bother her was simply untrue, adding she likes the "Dancing" contestant, People magazine reported Friday.
"This story could not be further from the truth," Harris said. "I adore Cloris Leachman and have had so much fun working with her this season. She even peeks into my dressing room each night, on the way to the set, to say hi. She's wonderfully entertaining and I love how she keeps us all on our toes!"
Leachman's fellow "Dancing" contestant, actress Susan Lucci, also denied the Chicago Sun-Times article's claim that she too has become annoyed with Leachman's on-air antics.
"It's a ridiculous rumor," Lucci told People, "I adore Cloris. We are very supportive toward each other. I enjoy her and we have wonderful conversations all the time."
