Florence Henderson left Dancing with the Stars Tuesday on a positive note, telling host Tom Bergeron on her way out, “I hope I’ve inspired people to get off their behinds and move and dance and live and enjoy life.”

But another contestant, who was saddened by her elimination, was singing a different tune.

“I’m trying not to cry,” the week’s leader, Brandy, said, walking up to kiss Henderson on the cheek as the actress was coincidentally speaking to reporters about their bond after the show.
