“I felt maybe a little cheated,” he told TVGuide.com. “I was hoping Kate [Gosselin] would go before me. She’s a sweetheart. She’s a popular girl. She’s on the cover of all the magazines. She’s got a lot more fans than me.”
Perky talk-show host Kelly Ripa agreed with her fellow soap alum when Turner and his ‘DWTS’ partner Edyta Sliwinska stopped by ‘Live with Regis and Kelly‘ Thursday morning to dish about getting bounced from the reality show.
“I think you guys were robbed,” fumed Ripa. “And I think certain people are judged on a different plain than everyone else.”
Could the bubbly blond be referring to clumsy, lead-footed dancer Kate Gosselin, who is still ‘Dancing,’ despite her awkward dance moves?
The sting of elimination was particularly prickly for Turner, as he and Sliwinska were prepping for next week’s show. The dancing duo were set to perform a paso doble to ‘Gonna Fly Now’ from ‘Rocky.’
“Maybe I should have shown more cleavage,” quipped Turner. “That’s where I went wrong.”
