Echoing the sentiments of many – predicted ejectee Bristol Palin included! – Florence Henderson was “very surprised” by her elimination from ‘Dancing with the Stars’ on Tuesday night, she shared on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live.’
Kimmel expressed his own shock that Henderson got the hook. “When you saw Bristol Palin in that gorilla thing, you must’ve said, ‘We got this wrapped up this week,'” he joked. Henderson didn’t understand. “I don’t know. I don’t know exactly how it works,” she wondered.
“It was our best dance ever, our highest score,” added Henderson’s pro partner, Corky Ballas. “She was just growing into her legs, getting strong and powerful.”
Kimmel offered his own theory as to why Henderson was voted off – her on-camera kiss with Barry Williams, who played her son on ‘The Brady Bunch.’ “Do you think that when America saw you kissing Greg Brady, they went, ‘What the hell’s going on here? This cannot happen again! Who knows where they’ll go next week if we let this continue!’?”
Henderson just laughed. “Now, Jimmy, I hate to break it to you, but he wasn’t really my son.”
