It was an emotional night on Dancing with the Stars, as another hopeful was sent home -- and this time it was one of the most lovable contestants.
After suffering performance mishaps two weeks in a row, Kirstie Alley was on thin ice during the elimination. And it seems Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett, who received Monday night's lowest score from the judges, is no longer being carried by her sexy moves. But in the end, both women were safe, and it was boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard who was forced to step out of the dancing ring.
"I put up a good fight," Leonard said, after the news was delivered. "And I will cherish this moment -- great friends, great people, great show."
Sugar Ray's partner, Anna Trebunskaya, had nothing but love for her fighter, saying, "It's been so much fun."
As for the eight remaining contestants, nobody should feel too safe. Though Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas had Monday night's highest score from the judges, the couple wasn't on tops when it came to the voters at home. But it seems there is plenty of love to go around for Ralph Macchio and Hines Ward, who landed the first two safe spots of the night.
