It looks as if “Dancing with the Stars” voters are really getting it right this season by picking off the weakest dancers one by one. The first cast off saw the lowest-scoring contestant (“Psycho” Mike Catherwood) exit the building, and this week’s second elimination was also plucked from the bottom of the leaderboard.
That’s right, Wendy Williams and her poorly-paired partner Tony Dovolani (see: Audrina Patridge last go-round and Kate Gosselin before that) ended their “DWTS” run Tuesday night when they became the second pair sent packing. Their scores this season were 14, 17, and 15.

“I am probably the busiest person in terms of flying back and forth,” Williams said, referring to splitting her time between “Dancing” rehearsals in L.A. and shooting her talk show in New York each week. After thanking Tony for teaching her how to dance, Williams quipped, “Despite stereotypes, this is one black woman who can’t even do the running man.”
But there was no final dance for this couple. Instead of sharing a last dance with her partner in the final moments of the show, as is tradition, Wendy left Tony standing by himself while she waved to the crowd and spoke to friends in the audience. Was that a slight…or an oversight? Come back Wednesday for the scoop on that with our exit interview with the dismissed duo.
Joining Wendy and Tony in the bottom three this week were Kendra Wilkinson and Louis Van Amstel and Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke. After a case of the giggles shared between Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas under the red lights, the bad news was delivered that Kendra and Louis were in jeopardy and, without skipping a beat, the reality star said on air, “That sucks. That killed it.”
Elsewhere on the show, head judge Len Goodman granted Hines Ward and Kym Johnson the encore dance for their amazing Samba; music guests One Republic and Selena Gomez rocked the house; and Maks apologized for dropping Kirstie Alley: “It’s all me. It’s my fault. I lost balance. I’m sorry.”
But, the money shot of the night was seeing Ralph Macchio’s non-spray tanned naked backside (well, it was covered by a big mirrorball!) stepping into a warm bath.
Here is where the remaining 9 couples stand on the leaderboard for all three weeks’ scores combined:
Hines and Kym: 69
Ralph and Karina: 66
Kirstie and Maks: 64
Chris and Cheryl: 63
Chelsea and Mark: 62
Romeo and Chelsie: 62
Petra and Dimitry: 61
Kendra and Louis: 60
Sugar Ray and Anna: 54
