Elisabetta Canalis Booted From Dancing With The Stars
First it was George Clooney, now all of America is saying goodbye to Italian model Elisabetta Canalis — at least for now. After last week's Ron Artest send-off, Canalis was the second contestant eliminated from the thirteenth season of ABC's Dancing with the Stars. Though she and partner Val Chmerkovskiy had higher points from the judges than several other contestants, including David Arquette and his partner, they received the fewest number of call-in votes from the audience and were sent home.
Canalis, who is Italian, and Val, who is the Ukrainian brother of longtime Dancing pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! after the elimination to talk about what appeared to be difficulty working together. "We get along. But of course we had a little fight and they showed it," Canalis said, referring to a little tiff she and Val had while training. "We kept it real from the beginning," Val told Kimmel, adding: "There was a lot of laughter they didn't show. Anyone smiling on camera … is lying. I'm not a great actor. I just behaved naturally."
Ten contestants remain, including fan favorites Chaz Bono, Carson Kressley, Nancy Grace, Ricki Lake and Rob Kardashian. Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays and Tuesdays on ABC.
