Denise Richards Didn't Think She was Leaving DWTS

Denise Richards was given the boot on Dancing with the Stars last night, but it came as a huge surprise to her! Funny, because it wasn’t a big surprise to any of us!

Denise and Holly Madison both found themselves in the bottom two last night due to their low scores, and therefore had to do the newly created “dance-off.” The ladies then each danced the samba, and while Denise scored higher from the judges, Holly got more viewer votes, and therefore stays on the show.

After her elimination, Denise headed over to Jimmy Kimmel, where she told him, "I really didn't think I was going. I wished I lasted longer."

But Denise had nice things to say about her competition on the show. She tells Us Weekly, "The audience response was so gracious and so great. Everyone was very, very supportive. I'm just so happy for everyone else who gets to continue, and who would've thought that Steve and Karina would be in? I'm so happy for them. He loves the show and is having fun."

And speaking of Karina, now that her fiancé Maksim Chmerkovskiy is off the show as well, he’s rooting for his girl! He tells Us Weekly, "Vote Steve and Karina!"

So who do you think is next to go? Holly came dangerously close to getting voted off this week. Is next week going to be her last? Let us know who you’re voting for on Dancing With The Stars!
