It looks like it’s time for Teresa Giudice to throw in her dancing shoes, as The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member has been eliminated from Dancing With the Stars.
Giudice and her professional dancing partner – Pasha Pashkov – were sent home on “Elvis Night” earlier this week, where they had performed an “All Shook Up” jive. The RHONJ star and her partner had been placed in the bottom two for the second week in a row, and they were swiftly eliminated after receiving a total score of 23/40.
“Listen, it was an amazing experience. I had an amazing partner,” Giudice told Page Six. “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.”
Despite the disappointment, Giudice was still in good spirits because she never really thought she’d be crowned the winner this season.
“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] … But I tried!”
Giudice was sent home by head judge Len Goodman, who broke a tie by opting to save Cheryl Ladd and professional dancer Louis Van Amstel.
“Yeah, I don’t think Len liked me really so much,” Giudice told reporters through a chuckle, according to Us Weekly. “I don’t think he liked me. I knew Len was not going to pick me. I knew he was going to pick Cheryl over me. I knew already … I had a feeling.”
Now that Giudice has been eliminated from Season 31 of Dancing With the Stars, she’s looking forward to spending time with her new husband, Luis “Louie” Ruelas, who she had just married one month prior to rehearsals for the show.
Teresa Giudice isn’t the only Real Housewife to appear on the beloved dancing competition series. The RHONJ star follows previous competitors like Kenya Moore, Erika Jayne, Lisa Venderpump, Lisa Rinna, Nene Leakes and Kim Zolciak-Biermann.
