Backstage Interviews at 'Dancing With the Stars': Petra Leaves the Show Happy; Kirstie Says Maks Is 'Sex on a Stick'

Dmitry Chaplin and Petra Nemcova
'Dancing With the Stars' -- the hottest show on TV -- just got a little less hot. Supermodel Petra Nemcova and her equally attractive pro dance partner Dmitry Chaplin were voted off the dance competition reality series last night.

The ousting proves that this season of the show is the most unpredictable. Nemcova recently topped the leader board, but after slipping to a three-way tie for last place this week she became vulnerable. After failing to gain enough votes to remain in the game, she and Chaplin learned their time on the show had come to an end.

Traditionally, models haven't fared well on 'DWTS.' Albert Reed was voted off early in season 5. Joanna Krupa, who arguably should have won season 9, was cut during the semifinals. Nemcova proved she's just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside, however, in her post-show interview in which she and Chaplin reflected on their time on the show and the duo's plans for the future.

If there's a sliver lining to their exit it's that they're not likely to find any embarrassing rehearsal footage of themselves in future video packages in the way Chelsie Hightower, Hines Ward and Maksim Chmerkovskiy did on Tuesday's results show.

"There is a reason for everything in life," Nemcova philosophized about her departure. "Something new and beautiful is beginning. I came here to raise awareness about my charity, Happy Hearts Fund, which helps rebuild the lives of children after natural disasters. That has been achieved. Now, I'm going to enter a new chapter where we can rebuild schools for [children in need]. That's something to look forward to."

"I am really happy that I had Petra as a partner this season," added Chaplin. "We had a great time in rehearsals and on the show. She's been improving and was willing to learn. As a teacher, that's all I want. I want someone who learns from me, is respectful, is willing to improve and takes my criticisms. Because I was criticizing her a lot!" he added, laughing.

While Nemcova leaves 'DWTS' a better dancer, she feels that Chaplin may have opportunities in her field -- modeling. "He's been doing some photo shoots and is really excited about it," Nemcova said. "I'm sure [Dmitry] has a future in fashion ... He has many talents."

Chelsie Hightower and Romeo While it's anyone's guess as to who'll go next in this unpredictable season, the stars and dancers set the record straight on one thing -- the embarrassing moments captured in rehearsal and broadcast on Tuesday's results show. Ward's flatulence, Hightower's falsies falling out and Chmerkovskiy's touting his hot self image were not staged for the camera.

"You do things in rehearsal that you think they're not going to air and then they do," marveled Hightower. "There was no staging going on. I would never go along with [a joke like that]."

"You're in rehearsal for eight hours [a day]," Romeo, her celeb partner, noted. "So anything can happen. Many things do happen."

"We'd gone out to lunch at Euro's, and that is something you're really not supposed to eat before [rehearsing]," Ward recalled. "Unfortunately, it happened. It made us closer."

"I was shocked," Kym Johnson, Ward's pro dancer recalled. "I thought, 'Did that just happen? Should I say anything?'"

Kirstie Alley and Maksim ChmerkovksiySurely, Chmerkovskiy's explaining how wonderful he is in the rehearsal studio was staged...or was it?

"I don't know what happened, but [Kirstie Alley] said something about me being cocky so I went on this rant," the Ukrainian-born dancer explained. "At the end of it, she said, 'Don't ever do that again.' So I went back to my humble self."

"Which never existed," Alley hastened to add. "Maybe [he was humble] when [he] was in the fourth grade and didn't like how he looked or something."

Chmerkovskiy said he had an epiphany much later -- when he was 19.

Alley asked him: "And then you realized what?"

"That I was sex on a stick," Chmerkovskiy deadpanned.

"I agree he's sex on a stick," Alley conceded. "I just want the recipe."

It's a shame that Petra was eliminated when she is a far better dancer that Kendra! All Kendra knows how to do shake her booty and boobs! Then she cries and uses fowl language when she gets criticised! Blows my mind!

Petra never should have been eliminated...she is the epitome of grace and beauty like no one else I have ever seen on DWTS...I do believe that Kendra should have gone home...this is a girl with a poor attitude, not into this at all and could not care less if she did go home. She reminds me of Kate Gosselin who had NO interest in dancing at all...
I also believe that since Dimitry has not been on DWTS for a couple of years this was also a draw-back for the couple...kind of over-looked by the peoples votes...
Petra is a gorgeous, intelligent and compassionate person...I was hoping she would win since she has faced so many losses in her life and yet? Such a beautiful person, both inside and out!!! Best of Luck to her always!

Hey? I know that todd palin refused DWTS and bristol the gorrilla gurl went a step or 2 and also neo con gopiggylett tom "the hammer" delay. Life goes on and todd has been reported somewhere, I do not recall of being driving an Alaskan massure at a parlor there. Bristol writes about teenage abstinance as in don't do as I do, do as I say and the lipstick gopiggylett sarah palin is doing what she knows best, touring the world with billionaires such as kock and trump. Man, I would not even touch momma grizzly with glenn becks, tom delays, ted stevens, womanizer bill un' reality or pat robbersnsons penis let alone mine.
