Mario Lopez set the bar high for his former “Saved by the Bell” co-stars by finishing in second place on Season 3 of “Dancing With The Stars,” and though Elizabeth Berkley’s been kicking butt for eight weeks now, she’s not the only Bayside babe lighting up the ballroom. Leah Remini, the other “SBTB” alum on Season 17, is still a strong contender for the Mirror Ball Trophy, and Liz went on “Chelsea Lately” last night to discuss her friendly competition with Zack Morris’ summertime crush.

“[Leah Remini and I] go way back,” Elizabeth tells Chelsea in the clip below, reminding the host of Remini’s stint on the ’90s sitcom. “Oh, right!” Chelsea recalls, amid cheers from the audience. Though there can only be one winner, Elizabeth admits she’d rather be standing next to her longtime friend at the show’s finale than anyone else. “I want [Leah] to make it to the end,” she says. “She’s putting herself out there every [week]!” Well, with Miss Pocket Rocket Snooki out of the running, we’re crossing our fingers for a Leah, Liz and Jack Osbourne Final 3. Let’s keep it in the fam, guys!
