Keeping up with the Kardashians star Kim Kardashian apparently couldn’t keep up on the DWTS dance floor. After judge Bruno Tonioli called her performance as cold as Siberia, she and her partner Mark Ballas were eliminated from Dancing With the Stars Tuesday night.
“I never, ever claimed to be a dancer," Kim confessed to OK! after being given the boot. "So when they were telling me I wasn’t moving, I only had a few weeks to learn all of this. But I’m walking away knowing this was the greatest experience of my life and I think God has a plan for us all and he knows when to push you and when you’ve had too much. This was a huge challenge for me.”
Although some would beg to differ, the TV reality beauty believed her personality came through on the hit ABC show. “This is me, without my sisters and without my family," she explained. "This was the perfect opportunity to show the real Kim. The real Kim is very shy and reserved and not outspoken and wild and crazy as everyone probably assumes.”
“For me, it’s not about winning the mirror ball trophy,” said Mark, who finished first with skater Kristi Yamaguchi last season. “It’s about making your partner the best she can be and making this a magical experience. This show is not about me — it’s about my partner. I’m here to guide her and teach her.”
After both Ballases landed in the bottom two Tuesday night, it was Mark who lost out. Corky told OK!, “It was horrible. I’d never experienced that emotion in my entire life. It was like a knife right through me. Before the result, he came and gave me a kiss and he said, ‘I hope it’s me and not you, dad.’ That just tore me to pieces.”
