Priscilla Presley Makes a Graceful Split from Dancing


The queen of Graceland knew it was coming. After finding herself in the bottom two two weeks in a row, Priscilla Presley got her walking papers on Dancing with the Stars.

When host Tom Bergeron delivered the bad news, Presley turned to her partner Louis Van Amstel for a hug. And she had nothing but praise for the show as well, telling the audience that it had been “an incredible, life-changing experience.”

After being penalized for doing a lift during her Viennese waltz the week before, it was Monday night’s rumba routine that did Presley in. Despite doing two splits–two!–during her Latin number, the judges labeled the 62-year-old actress’ rumba dull.

Joining Presley and Van Amstel in the red zone were Cristian de la Fuente and two-time champ Cheryl Burke, whose rumba also failed to impress the judges.
