Keeping Up with the Kardashians: Kim Steps Out of Her 'Dancing' Shoes
Tuesday night saw Kim Kardashian and Dancing with the Stars partner Mark Ballas leave the competition, as their performances was thought to be not up to par with most viewers’ standards.  Even the judges agreed with America’s decision, with Bruno Tonioli commenting that her performance on Monday night was “colder and more distant than Siberia.”

As a matter of fact, Julianne Hough recently blogged and said that “Kim was one of the weaker [contenders this season].  I hate saying that, but it's true.”  Check out our Dancing with the Stars Top 11 Performance Rankings, Top 11 Results Live Thoughts and Top 11 Results Recap.

Nonetheless, Hough says that Kim is “a real sweetheart.  Everyone has their perceptions of people before they meet them, and I can tell you she's such a good person.  Obviously, though, people have to be voted off to keep the show going.  That's the name of the game.”

Moreover, Kim’s sister Khloe expressed her delight in seeing her work so hard for the competition.  Khloe told press, “I am so proud of how hard Kim has worked!  She has completely gone out of her comfort zone by doing 'DWTS' and I am so happy she did.  She made the show in my opinion!”

Kim on the other hand, admits that she did pour a lot into the effort, telling E!, “This was a huge challenge for me.  Every dance was a huge accomplishment for me and I did the best I could.  And this was the best experience of my life.”

Additionally, Kim said in her blog, “I know I wasn't the best dancer and I never claimed to be.  I have never taken a dance class in my life until now! But WOW what an incredible experience!”

The 27-year-old added that “I will never ever forget this journey.  I have made friends I know will be in my life forever now! I wouldn't have given up the experience for the world!”

Too bad it ended too soon for the reality celebrity, who brings back her family for a third season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians next year.
