Former model Kathy Ireland might not be the judges’ favorite on Dancing with the Stars, but she can count on her most loyal supporter, Elizabeth Taylor, to give her top marks.
After Kathy, 46, and her partner Tony Dovolani performed “Shall We Dance” from The King and I, Bruno Tonioli wasn’t impressed, telling them “You can’t dance the quickstep two miles apart… You’re elegant, beautiful to look at, but you have to be engaging.” But Dame Elizabeth couldn’t disagree more!
“Saw Dancing With The Stars tonight. Didn’t think the judges were fair to Kathy Ireland.” Elizabeth, 77, tweeted about her friend and business partner on Sept. 28.
“Kathy was delightful, gorgeous and fit the music they chose perfectly,” the former Mrs. Richard Burton twittered, “If they ever do a remake of The King and I she should star in it.”
Elizabeth, who gave the ’80s swimsuit model a Valentino gown as a good-luck gift for the ABC show, ended her messages of support by tweeting, “Please join me in voting for her on abc.com until noon tomorrow. God Bless.”
Kathy plans to donate any proceeds from her appearance on DWTS to charities including The Elizabeth Taylor HIV/ AIDS Foundation.
