'Dancing With the Stars' Results: Week Three Elimination (VIDEO)

Week Three Elimination, 'Dancing with the Stars'In this third week of competition on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC), there were some pretty clear front-runners and some pretty clear contenders for being the next contestant sent home.

For the second week in a row, talk show host Wendy Williams and her professional dancer partner Tony Dovolani received the lowest marks from the judges. They also had the second-lowest points total last week, just escaping elimination. In other words, Williams was going to need her fan-base to pull her through this week.

With every other couple scoring a 20 or better to Williams' 15, it seemed unlikely that someone else would be sent packing, but that's the kind of unpredictability and drama that reality television is made of.

Unfortunately, fans of that sort of dramatics will have to wait another week as for the second time in as many eliminations, the obvious choice was sent home. Wendy Williams is done with 'DWTS' and returns to her own talk show, where she'll surely dish all about it.

That isn't to say she didn't have plenty of words for tonight. We could have done without the excuses about how busy she is in her life, though she did own up to her weakness on the dance floor, which we respected. And she proved funny and charming in her departure.

"Despite stereotypes, this is one black girl who can't even do the running man," she said with a laugh, thanking her partner for all that he taught her.

While not the most graceful on the floor, Williams is a personality the show will certainly miss. But with her gone, the competition is much tighter and thus it's getting harder to guess who might be the next to go.

Aww... Wendy seems like a really great "normal" kind of person. I like her. She will be fine in her life. Good luck Wendy doing what you do best, anyway!

Unfortunately... the reality of these celebrity based (made for ratings) competitions, is that they are rigged to popularity. Furthermore, the judges are inconsistent with they're critiques which in my opinion, challenges the integrity of the show.

Kirstie is easily the most pubicized & sympathized headliner on the show! There isn't an interview or scene where she doesn't play on her age or weight disadvantage. Personally I can't stay her! If this were a true competition based on scores from the judges... then the fact that as a couple, she went down to the floor, should've warranted low scores - Period! But, instead... her scores still matched or bettered more than half of the contestants.

Thumbs down to the judges who were too busy critiquing technique & grace from the others!!!!

Well, I'm sorry if this is unkind, but Wendy looks, sounds AND acts like a big, ole' drag queen. It was dreary that she gave all those excuses (boo-hoo) as if no one else had kids, homes, other jobs or responsibilities. Then, she was so arrogant, she didn't even dance one last turn with Tony, like everyone else does, but chose to work the crowd, hugging and shaking hands....assuming some of those were her family or fans. I don't think it was charming at all bringing race into the issue of the fact she is a big, clumsy, untalented person who just can't dance! She should stick to her talk show. What talk show....?

Thank you. I feel better that I'm not the only person who noticed these things. TV needs an enema.
