Oh snap. Kim Kardashian was the third contestant eliminated from Dancing With the Stars last night, and was so distraught, that after concluding the show with a rendition of one of her and partner Mark Ballas’s dances, she immediately ran into her family’s arms and broke down crying.
“It was a tough day for her,” Ballas said, “and we talked about it, and I imagine it will always be a sad day for her. I just hope that her time on the show was magical for her, and, at the end of the day, I will always be so proud that I was the one holding her hand up there.”
Her publicist even followed her around the press line with a box of Kleenex. Saaaad.
Judge Carrie Ann Inaba told People, “I don’t think she really understood what it was that she got into when she joined the show. It looks very glamorous, and it looks easy, but dancing is so athletic, and so difficult, and it’s not easy to improve each week, and that’s exactly what we demand from the contestants on the show.
