Chynna Phillips’ royalty-goosing reign of terror on “Dancing with the Stars” is finally at an end.
The Wilson-Phillips singer, whose canny habit of performing dance routines to the sound of her own songs — ensuring each episode earned her additional cash — drew the ire of the blogosphere, was kicked off DWTS last night after an embarrassing routine Monday night.
Performing a saucy tango to the theme of “Mission Impossible” (one of those sentences that only a DWTS recapper could write) Phillips at one point appeared to completely blank on her steps, awkwardly raising a leg and doing a tiny waddle while partner Tony Dovolani danced around her.
It wasn’t the most cringeworthy thing to happen on “Dancing with the Stars” — Google “Bristol Palin gorilla suit” if you want to see that — but it was still pretty awkward. Still, the routine wasn’t a total loss; at least we got to see Tony’s awesome “MI”-style ceiling entrance.
After the gaffe, Phillips’ ouster was all-but certain; last night only made it official. Now that she’s gone, who do you want to win? (We hope it’s Ricki Lake — she’s spunky!)
