The “Queen Of All Media” Wendy Williams was eliminated Tuesday from the 12th season of Dancing with the Stars, on a night musical acts such as OneRepublic and Selena Gomez & the Scene rocked the house with sizzling performances.
“Despite stereotypes, this is one black girl who can’t even do the running man,” said Williams, whose poorly-received foxtrot on Monday earned the night’s lowest score of 15 points.
“The problem is, it’s not my personality in the competition, it’s my feet,” said Williams, who joins Loveline personality Mike Catherwood as the first two contestants eliminated so far in 2011. “If my personality were in the competition, I’d win!”

Williams tweeted after the show: “Thank u all for your love & support. You’ll never know how much u mean to me. We’ll tlk tomorrow in Hot Topics. I luv u for watching. xox”
Later, Williams appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with her dance partner Tony Dovolani and joked, “My dogs are hurting,” referring to her sore feet.
Williams said she’s an ideal contestant for the show because she’s a novice dancer.
“Tony, do you agree Wendy does not know how to dance?” Kimmel asked Dovolani.
“I absolutely agree on that one!” Dovolani said.
After stopping by Jimmy Kimmel in Los Angeles Tuesday night, Williams continued her whirlwind media tour on Wednesday morning, appearing on Good Morning America, live in studio in New York. Williams told GMA she just “wasn’t able to bring her personality to the dance floor, because I’m not a dancer.”
She also called it a “wonderful experience” and said she took it “all in fun.”
The nine contestants left include: The Karate Kid‘s Ralph Macchio; actress Kirstie Alley; Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward; rapper Romeo; WWE wrestler-turned-best-selling author Chris Jericho; Disney star Chelsea Kane; Playboy Playmate-turned-E! star Kendra Wilkinson; Czech model Petra Nemcova; and iconic boxer Sugar Ray Leonard.
Dancing with the Stars returns on ABC Monday at 8/7c.
