‘DWTS’ Star Martina Navratilova Tells Jimmy Kimmel: “It’s Tony’s fault!”

Martina and Tony DWTS Season 14 2012If you’ve yet to watch the Dancing With The Stars results show, beware this post involves spoilers! March 27 marked the last day on DWTS for contestant and tennis legend Martina Navratilova, but after she got the bad news, she headed over to ABC’s late night show, Jimmy Kimmel Live! to relive the whole experience. Luckily, she’s a great sport so the interview wasn’t laden with any post-elimination bitterness. Well, maybe a little.

Navratilova joked that the elimination was the fault of her partner, Tony Dovolani. “He somehow couldn’t make my legs move the right way,” she joked. But in truth, the tennis great was all positivity and optimism: “It wasn’t about the ball … it was about the challenge.”
However gracious and sweet Navratilova was with Kimmel, he couldn’t resist taking one last playful swipe at the first DWTS castoff: he had Guierrmo burn her dancing shoes in the traditional “burning of the Capezios” ceremony.

DWTS Results: Who’s Eliminated First?

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
