'Dancing with the Stars' eliminated contestant: 'Maybe my story didn't help!'

Good news for those amateur hoofers who end up at bottom of the leaderboard each week: You’re not always the most obvious target for elimination. No where was that more apparent than during Tuesday’s results episode of Dancing with the Stars, when one of the B (C? D?) Listers who earned a middle-of-the-pack score on Monday ended up having to pack a bag on Tuesday. (Way to dodge a bullet, Chaz!)

To read the parting words from the latest goodbye gal or guy, head to the jump.

Kristin Cavallari certainly didn’t strut like a loser on Monday. Her samba with partner Mark Ballas was a hit the crowd, and even her “former” fiance Jay Cutler was in the house to enjoy her hip action to Crazy In Love. And with a 24 out of a possible 30 points – the same score given to Rob Kardashian and Hope Solo — the ex-star of The Hills wasn’t feeling like it was her time to head for the hills.

But Ballas was: His body action in the final moments of Tuesday’s show spoke volumes. “He felt like we were going home,” Cavallari told reporters afterwards. “I was like, `why? Don’t say that, you’re making me nervous!’ And everyone else was walking by and saying, yeah, don’t worry you are fine.”

Maybe Tom Bergeron was right, Cavallari admitted: Maybe the folks at home assumed she was okay and voted for Solo and Kardashian instead. Or maybe her ouster had something to do with her being a young, carefree blonde with no real discernible angst in her life except a supposed breakup with an ex-fiance who still shows up to her events.

“Maybe my story didn’t help,” Cavallari admitted, in reference to Monday’s theme of paying tribute to memorable personal moments. “Everyone had really sad stories. And mine was graduating from high school and moving to Los Angeles.” Perhaps!

So what’s next for the diminutive reality star? She continues to deflect questions about her personal life. (World, you’ll just have to wait to find out if that breakup with Cutler really was one!) In the meantime, she’s hawking shoes for Chinese Laundry as its online ambassador and plans to steer clear of reality shows — for now. “I think I’m done for a little bit,” she said, before cautioning, “but never say never!”

        I don’t know why this site doesn’t have a way to monitor cheap advertising like yours . Get off here and pay for your ads—–

    • From Canada With Love

      @wootie and Server – you are both sick and sad.

  • tweedle dee

    Maybe it was the bug in her hair

  • Sally

    I love Mark’s choreography but I’m glad to see her go. She is just not very likeable. And she’s right, her “personal story” didn’t help. Moving to LA to become a “celebrity” over going to college??

    • BigWoof

      Mark is overrated and pompous! Glad he is gone fast….just like the Hills was…overated….

    • Man In Black

      Yeah, really. The others had substance to their stories and the reasons they chose the songs they chose. Kristin told that story because she wanted the excuse to dance to Beyonce.

  • jfms777

    OMG. Chaz Bono is becoming this season’s Bristol Palin.

    • Spats

      Fitting since Mark was partnered with Bristol. Kristin was not that good. She was good at hairography.

    • blinky

      i don’t think chaz moved once in the last 2/3 of his dance.

    • Jess

      Only 600 pounds heavier.

  • Spats

    Or maybe it was her attention seeking partner. He was no help.

    • caryn c

      completely agree

  • Shar

    “Never say never”….NEVER!!!!!!!

  • Rita

    It should have been Chaz however I much I respect who he has become he cannot dance and looks decidely uncomfortable on that dance floor but when I heard earlier today that Cher was going to be there next week I knew he wouldn’t be the one to go home..seems fishy imo. As far as Kristin going I do not necessarily agree with Tom B about why.

    • Zach

      Yeah, she just doesn’t have a fanbase and wouldn’t have gained any new fans on the show, especially during Story Week. She should have gotten votes for the dancing, though.

      • Carly

        Yes….her dance was very good. I think it is time for this show to let the judges gain a little control like So You Think You Can Dance.

    • Carla

      While I was rooting for Chaz to do well, and he is improving, he really should have gone home last night. Nancy Grace needs to go also.

  • Carly

    I think we all know how this show goes in the early weeks. This year, though, I think we have a particularly wounded crop of birds. Ought to call it Dancing with the Scars this year. There is no obvious hate target this year, like Kate Gosselin or Kim Kardashian. This season, they all have more gentle stories, and I think the saddest case might just triumph.

    • Tim Hunt

      Scars? Really? You deserve to be scared yourself – dirtbag!

      • Michelle

        *scarred* not scared

      • megan

        Give it a rest–don’t you know a typo when you see it?

  • Natalie

    Kristin just isn’t that likeable… especially compared to many of the other contestants. Most people probably don’t know who she is, and the ones who do mainly know her as the conceited boyfriend- stealer from Laguna Beach and The Hills, or as the ex-fiancee who cursed Jay Cutler’s football career. Either way, things didn’t look good for her chances.

    • Amy

      Don’t mean to pile on but I completely agree. I still remember when MTV producers tried to revive “The Hills” by bringing Kristin back to be the villain. And her “story” of leaving her upper crust Laguna Beach home to move to LA clearly did not bode well for her either.

  • Adele

    As much as I like Chaz, and Cher, it just seems so suspect that he isn’t the one going home. He was obviously the worst on the dance floor. I think he couldn’t do much because of his knees. No doubt the producers wanted him to stay because knowing that Cher will be there will bring more viewers. And it just isn’t about the dancing. It’s a popularity contest.

    • susela

      Yes, and Cher has lots of friends.

  • Carly

    Chaz will stay like Cloris Leachman stayed, and why Kate Gosselin and Bristol Palin stayed. Because we like to hate them and derive entertainment from the. Said it before, but I have to hand it to these people who are willing to put it all out there for our entertainment, and, sadly, abuse. This season should be called “Dancing with the Scars”, and I do not mean that to be hateful. I am applauding the the dancers for letting their stories touch us so much. But I think we all have to acknowledge that this show has long since stopped being a dance competition.

    • Onslow

      Carly is exactly right. The producers manipulate the results to drive ratings. Chaz Bono is this season’s Kate Gosselin, Buzz Aldrin, Cloris Leachman, Master P. Chaz is by far the worst dancer in this cast, but they keep him around to maintain attention to the show as it is fading in the ratings.

      • megan

        I didn’t like Gosselin and Leachman-and I don’t like Grace -I DO like Chaz’s dogged attempts to dance and that’s why people vote for him. He’s trying and and that appeals to a lot of people.

    • Michelle

      Redundant comment. You posted your “dancing with the scars” cr@p above.

    • Sue

      Don’t put Chloris Leachman in the same category as Palin and Gosselin and Chaz. There is no reason to actually hate her – she’s a great comedic actress with talent and was famous for a reason.

  • Tahlia

    Well. At least the show have proven, without a doubt, that Chaz was never a lesbian or gay. He’s just a dude that can’t dance.

    • RaRa

      That cracked me up!

    • Rita


  • Carly


    I have to step back a bit from my comment about Chaz staying around because we are into hating. I would like to believe that Americans are voting for him because he did something very public and very courageous because he needed to do it. I am proud of the America that votes for him.

  • Judity

    Disgraceful…Nancy can’t dance, Chaz can barely walk, and David is stiff as a board. Any one of the 3 should have gone home. They need to change the voting–All those idiots out there making it a popularity contest are ruining the show.

    • Acaseofgeo

      Oh HOW about the people bit-Ka-ching about just simply vote or shut up. I don’t think anyone KNEW who the last 2 girls who got voted off were. If you think they should stay, vote. I LOVE Nancy despite her tabloidish baracuda persona. And I’m glad her fans sailed her through. I know she won’t win but the fans’ voices count. So Vote.

  • James Griffin

    Kristin Cavallari is lovely, gorgeous, sexy and beautiful. I love her. She’s amazing. That woman is incredible. It is a shame that she was eliminated. She’s a very talented dancer. It was an exquisite performance by her, just wonderful.

    • Kristin Cavallari

      Thank you for those kind words.
