If 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.
