“I was in a mood. I’m a girl,” explained Kendra Wilkinson backstage moments after landing at the bottom of the leaderboard on Week 4 of “Dancing with the Stars.”
The reality star and her partner Louis Van Amstel scored an 18 for their Viennese Waltz, which could have put them in serious jeopardy for Tuesday night’s elimination. “Yeah, it does suck that we’re in the lowest score. It is what it is. That is the name of the game,” a defeated sounding Wilkinson told reporters after getting a supportive hug from hubby Hank Baskett.
“I was in a mood all day today even before the dance, so it showed through my dance. It showed when I was being judged. [It] was a day that the whole judging, criticizing thing I didn’t take well,” she continued.
Van Amstel even admitted it was a rough time in front of the judges. “When you stand there and the first judge tears it apart – and we know it’s a show – but still, you automatically, even if it’s a pro, I’m like, ‘Was it that bad?’ I didn’t think so. But when you stand there, and you know everybody is watching you stand there, you have to listen. It’s nerve-wracking. It’s not fun,” he said.
To make matters worse, the pair had to answer question after question about their bad night, including questioning Kendra on why she talked back to the judges about only having four days to prepare when all the couples only had four days. “We had one day less, actually two days less because she was not, we didn’t rehearse,” corrected Van Amstel.
“I just had a day off,” Kendra added. “I didn’t feel that good. Yeah. But I’m not speaking for myself. I’m speaking for everybody. It’s like how do you expect us to be a pro dancer in four days. I’m speaking for everybody. I wanted to remind America that we didn’t get years of practice. We got four days.”
Onto a lighter topic, Wilkinson had nothing but praise for Karina Smirnoff’s decision to pose for Playboy: “I think [posing for] Playboy and ‘Dancing with the Stars’ are two very separate things. She is an adult woman. I mean we live in America for God’s sake. I mean, let her be who she wants to be. I mean, I’m so happy that she found that place in life where she wants to show her pride. She wants to show her happiness. That’s who she is. She’s about to get married. It’s kind of in a while a bachelorette party for herself.”
Do you think it’s bye-bye for Kendra and Louis?
