DiSpirito Eliminated From ‘DWTS’
U.S. celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito and his professional dance partner Karina Smirnoff were the latest couple eliminated from "Dancing with the Stars."
"It's all gravy! This was a wonderful experience and there's nothing to complain about," DiSpirito told E! News backstage after learning of his fate. "I got to learn how to dance. I got to make friends with Karina. I even got (judge) Bruno (Tonioli) to dance!"
No one was eliminated from the show last week because Olympic beach volleyball champ Misty May-Treanor was forced to drop out due to an injury.
Reality television personality Kim Kardashian, actor Ted McGinley and comedian Jeffrey Ross got the boot during previous episodes of the U.S. dance competition show.
