Elisabetta Canalis Booted From Dancing With The Stars

Dancing with the Star said goodbye to another contestant Tuesday night and the unlucky star turned out to be Italian TV personality Elisabetta Canalis. Canalis found herself in the bottom three with Chaz Bono and David Arquette. She earned 21 points for her quickstep Monday night while Arquette and Bono landed at the bottom of the scoreboard with 18 and 17 points respectively.
Canalis’ pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy said he realized it came down to a lack of fan base for Canalis, who is best known in the US as the ex-girlfriend of George Clooney. “There were huge challenges for her. We're a proud nation. We're a welcoming nation, but [Americans] have our own idols and our own fan base. This show is about people who have huge fan bases. We can't compete with that,” he said.
"For me, it was a gift every day staying here. It was a great adventure,” Canalis said. “I want to thank everybody because they made me come here. Thanks to the public and to everybody who voted for us. Now I am really nervous, but thank you anyway. It was a great experience.”
In addition to Bono and Arquette, the remaining contestants are: Ricki Lake, Kristen Cavallari, Rob Kardashian, JR Martinez, Nancy Grace, Chynna Phillips, Hope Solo and Carson Kressley.
