DWTS eliminated dancer: I had 'happy tears'

Just because it was Disney Night on Dancing with the Stars doesn’t mean everyone got their happy ending. Someone had to turn in their glass slippers and go home!

But first, a spoiler alert! Don’t read on if you haven’t watched Monday’s installment of the ABC show.

Marla Maples was teary-eyed after performing last week’s jive, which didn’t leave the judges feeling “Happy.” (She and Tony Dovolani danced it to the Pharrell Williams song). Her tribute performance to 1993, her most memorable year, only earned a 21. So Donald Trump’s ex-wife became the latest hoofer to leave the ballroom.

“It’s been the most incredible experience. Tony has been the most masterful teacher,” she told host Tom Bergeron. “We have had so much fun, don’t let those tears fool you, that was the tear of like, we made it through last week. Those were happy tears.”

Dancing with the Stars airs Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
