Wendy Williams out of the competition on ‘Dancing with the Stars’

SHARE Wendy Williams out of the competition on ‘Dancing with the Stars’

It came down to Chris Jericho and his partner Cheryl Burke, and Wendy Williams and her partner Tony Dovolani, but when the smoke faded away on tonight’s “Dancing with the Stars” results show, it was talk show host Wendy Williams who was shown the exit sign.

With graciousness and some comedic bawdiness, Williams said her many responsibilities outside the show may have contributed to her early exit, but she was thankful for the chance to compete.

In the end, the decision made sense, after Williams’ awful turn the night before in which she scored only 15 points from the judges — the night’s lowest total.

Alas, I had predicted Sugar Ray Leonard or Petra Nemcova would have been booted (due to Williams’ fan base), but I was proven wrong. Perhaps this season it really will come down to who’s the best dancer afterall, and not who has the largest fan base.

Here’s hoping.
