Another elimination night on Dancing With the Stars only means one thing: Another couple is definitely not going home with the mirror ball! As Petra Nemcova and Dmitry Chaplin kicked off their dancing shoes and said their goodbyes, Petra pointed out it’s not the end, it’s merely the beginning!
While she’ll “definitely” continue dancing to help her posture, spin and pelvis, there’s one concern she admitted to reporters: “It’s going to be hard to find someone as good of a teacher as Dmitry, so it’s going to be like, “Who can I take lessons from?”
In addition to continuing dancing, she’ll also forge ahead with her charity, Happy Hearts which rebuilds lives after natural disasters . “There’s reason for everything in life and I believe when something is ending, something new and beautiful is beginning,” she explained. “I was asked to be in places where I can make the most difference. Where I can be the best service to others and I came here to raise awareness for Happy Hearts Fund and that has been achieved.”
A visibly emotional Petra told OK!, “Some people today were saying that I talk about Happy Hearts Fund to get votes. That hurt because it’s not true. It’s who I am. People say, “Oooh she’s a supermodel.” But what I do almost every single day is rebuild lives for children. Happy Hearts is my life, it’s not for votes.That’s maybe something that didn’t translate well completely.”
As for what Dmitry thought didn’t transfer well on TV? All the fun they had! “I understand because the show is so compressed, only few seconds to show the rehearsal.” He pointed out, “But people don’t know how much fun it was, because we had so many amazing moments.”
