The reality TV star has become the third contestant to be voted off the dancing competition following Jeffrey Ross and Ted McGinley.
In a surprising twist to some, TV personality Kim Kardashian has been eliminated from season 7 of "Dancing with the Stars". After a "colder and more distant than Siberia" rumba performance on Monday, September 29, the 27-year-old could not avoid on being sent home on Tuesday, September 30. She becomes the third participant to exit the show after the reality series' premiere last Monday, September 22.
Though her departure is a shocker to some since many predicted that Cloris Leachman or Rocco DiSpirito would have to be cut off first, the Hollywood socialite took the elimination positively. Paying tribute to her late father, Robert Kardashian, on her parting words, she said, "I just know he's really happy and watching over me and I know he's really proud." To E! Online, the reality TV star also added, "This was a huge challenge for me. Every dance was a huge accomplishment for me and I did the best I could. And this was the best experience of my life."
On her partner side, Mark Ballas, who won the competition last season with Kristi Yamaguchi, let out that he was glad that his father, Corky Ballas, is still on the run for the title after narrowly escaping elimination. Older Ballas who teams up with Leachman shared the bottom two position with Mark this week. Meanwhile, the Tuesday show was also made merry with the country tunes performance of Jessica Simpson.
