Wendy Williams Eliminated on Dancing with the Stars

Posted on

It was a tough night on Dancing with the Stars!

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley took a tumble on Monday’s show, but they weren’t the only ones who had trouble with their footwork.

Kendra Wilkinson almost fell down some smoky steps at the beginning of her sexy routine with Louis Van Amstel and Kym Johnson told PEOPLE she nearly took a spill while dancing the samba with Hines Ward.

Despite all that, talk show host Wendy Williams earned the night’s lowest scores – just 15 points out of 30 – for her stiff fox trot with Tony Dovolani. Judge Len Goodman said they performed “a dance more suited to the radio.”

Williams was eliminated, and though she told PEOPLE Monday, “we were robbed,” she exited the ballroom gracefully.

“I’m probably the busiest person in terms of flying back and forth. In addition to that, I have a marriage and a child and a litany of other things,” the talk show host, whose show tapes in New York, said of her hectic schedule since appearing on Dancing, which tapes in Los Angeles.

Williams thanked the judges and her partner, Tony Dovolani, “for teaching me how to dance,” implying that he accomplished a lot in the ballroom. “Despite stereotypes,” Williams said, “this is one black girl who can’t do the running man.”
