Second Dancing With The Stars exit

Wendy Williams has been booted off Dancing With The Stars.

The TV host was dismissed on Tuesday after coming into the episode, which featured a performance by Selena Gomez, in last place.

She earned 15 points out of 30 the previous night for her foxtrot with professional partner Tony Dovolani.

Wendy said being on the US show was "a wonderful opportunity" and she thanked the judges and her partner for teaching her how to dance.

"Despite stereotypes, this is one black girl who can't even do the running man," she said.

She struggled throughout her three weeks on the show, regularly landing near the bottom of the leaderboard. Judges' scores are combined with viewer votes to determine which couple is ousted each week.

"The problem is it's not my personality in the competition, it's my feet," she said on Tuesday's episode. "If my personality were in the competition, I'd win!"

Wendy is the second contestant eliminated from the hit ABC show's 12th season. Radio host Mike Catherwood was dismissed last week.

The results show also included musical performances by OneRepublic and Selena.

Returning to dance on Monday will be actors Kirstie Alley, Ralph Macchio and Chelsea Kane; athletes Hines Ward, Chris Jericho and Sugar Ray Leonard; singer Romeo; reality star Kendra Wilkinson and model Petra Nemcova.
