Pamela Anderson was determined to make her stint on the 15th season of Dancing With the Stars, the All-Stars edition, as long and memorable as possible. Unfortunately, she was the first to be sent home in last night’s eliminations round.
After coming at the bottom of the judges leader score the previous night, with merely 17 points for her foxtrot with Tristan MacManus, Pamela wasn’t really shocked when she heard she would be packing her bags.
Ultimately, her and Tristan’s fate was in the hands of voters at home, as the ABC report embedded below confirms.
“I was ready for it, for sure. We got the lowest score, but we’ll keep dancing, we’ll dance together again,” Pamela said when the results were announced, trying to force a smile.
She bolted shortly afterwards and skipped the press after the show, leaving Tristan to fend for himself. She was not feeling well, he told reporters.
Before that, Pamela had tried to plead with the judges to keep her on the show, admitting to a “shaky” foxtrot but putting it down to not enough time to rehearse.
She had plans to make amends next week.
“I put a lot of personal stuff into each performance and I just want to do more of it. I think emotions sometimes take over and also I’ve been travelling a lot, I probably should have rehearsed more… and they’re right,” Anderson said after the routine, looking at the judges.
“I should have put a lot more effort in, and I’m going to because next week we have such a great dance and I really want to get to it,” she added.
“I’m going to end up in musical theatre and I’m going to be on Broadway and I’m really excited about that opportunity and the next dance is a little tease so I would really like to do it,” the star also said.
