AceShowbiz - Teresa Giudice has reacted to her elimination from "Dancing with the Stars". In a new interview, "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star shared her feelings after she and pro dancer Pasha Pashkov were sent home during "Elvis Night" on Monday, September 26.
"Listen, it was an amazing experience. I had an amazing partner," the 50-year-old TV star told Page Six via Zoom. She also shared that participating on the dancing competition show was her dream.
She explained, "Finally, my dream came true. I've always wanted to dance, I did two dances in front of a live audience and it was pretty amazing. It was great."
Meanwhile, Teresa jokingly insinuated that she was eliminated because one of the judges didn't like her. "Yeah, I don't think Len liked me really so much," the Bravo personality told reporters in the post-show presser while laughing. "I don't think he liked me. I knew Len was not going to pick me. I knew he was going to pick [Cheryl Ladd] over me. I knew already … I had a feeling."
Teresa went on to say that it's "all good" because she knew she wouldn't be crowned as the winner of current season 31. "I wanted to win the mirrorball … but you know what? There's a lot of amazing dancers on this show, so I knew I wasn't going to [win]," the mom of four elaborated. "When I saw my competition, I'm like, 'I'm definitely not winning it.' But I tried!"
Trying to keep positive, Teresa shared getting eliminated meant she could be spending more time with her new husband, Luis "Louie" Ruelas. "I just got married and then I started doing 'Dancing With the Stars', so it's like I left my husband," she shared. "I felt really bad, so at least now I get to go home and spend time with [him], 'cause I am a newlywed."
In the interview, Teresa also named the other Housewife she would nominate for the next season of "DWTS". "Jennifer Aydin," she told Page Six, adding that her co-star came to support her in the ballroom. "I was going to ask [Cynthia Bailey] to come next week but … too late now."
