Wendy Williams is not ready to be voted off Dancing With the Stars, but currently she is in last place on the leader board, making an elimination at tonight’s live results show very possible. The talk show queen became very vulnerable on The Wendy Williams Show today, breaking down as she told fans she really hopes to make it through.
Last night Wendy and her partner Tony Dovolani did not score big with their foxtrot, landing in the bottom with 15 points out of 30.
“I’m going to take what the judges say under advisement and if we don’t get eliminated tonight, then I’m going to dance the waltz next week to the best of my ability,” Wendy promised today on her show, via TV Squad. “The purpose of my being here is to show women that we can do anything that we put our minds to.”
But Wendy let emotion get ahead of her, and she became very choked up.
“Yeah, I’m hurt, and I feel robbed and I’m not ready to go home,” she said. However, she added that if she is eliminated, she’ll return to her talk show with a smile on her face.
Wendy performed her fox trot to “A DJ Saved My Life” telling a story is about how she got started in media and how she would sleep in her car, at rest stops and take bird baths.
While the judges respected the motivation behind the dance, they were less understanding about her technique.
“This week we took a little step backwards,” Carrie Ann Inaba said shaking her head.
Len Goodman added, “Your story was about hard work and struggling to achieve your goal. But it (the dance) was a struggle, a dance more suited to the radio.”
