No one expected the former “Hills” star to go home so soon, let alone after scoring a 24 with her sexy samba on Monday night. But she did leave after what was one of the most emotional nights in recent “Dancing” memory – personal story week, in which war vet J.R. Martinez brought the house to tears. Yet, her story did not contribute to the emotion of the night at all.
Instead, her story was about graduating high school and deciding between college or a career in entertainment in Los Angeles. There just wasn’t much drama, emotion, or meat to her story.

When asked why she thought she went home this week, the reality star at first said, “I think Tom [Bergeron] said maybe everyone thought we were safe so they voted for other people. I don’t know. Maybe the audience didn’t like our dances after all. I’m not sure.”
Then, on second thought, she told reporters moments after getting the boot, “Maybe my story didn’t help also. Everyone had really sad stories and mine was graduating high school and moving to L.A.”
She might not have shared a sad story on Monday, but she was certainly showing sorrow Tuesday night. “I’m sad. I was having so much fun. I thought I was gonna be around for at least a couple more weeks,” Kristin said.
As for future plans, she’ll continue her fashion blogging for Chinese Laundry but might take a break from reality TV.
“I don’t know,” she said of doing another show. “I think I’m done for a little. But never say never.”
