When Tony Dovolani and I were sent home from Dancing with the Stars Tuesday night, we were both in shock. We didn’t think we were going to be sent home so soon.
Even though Tony and I received high scores and were in second place, we still got voted off! It’s just so baffling. I think a lot of people don’t understand why it happened either. Even the judges were in shock.
After Kyle Massey and his partner Lacey Schwimmer were declared safe, it was us and Jennifer Grey and her partner Derek Hough in the bottom two. When the heartbeat music started playing in the ballroom, I felt like my heart was going to pop out of my chest! Then I heard Tony behind me saying, “It’s us. It’s us.”
But when the announcer called our names, I didn’t really know what to think. I honestly was in shock. Tony and I just kind of stood there like, “Is this really happening?” I was so bummed and upset because I wasn’t ready to go yet.
