(LOS ANGELES) -- Audrina Patridge, of MTV's The Hills fame, and pro partner Tony Dovolani were voted off ABC’s Dancing with the Stars Tuesday night after a Paso Doble performance Monday that judge Len Goodman felt lacked character. Patridge told host Tom Bergeron she had a lot of fun, met a lot of new friends and would come back to visit.
The couple’s departure was something of a shock, considering they scored the second-highest marks of the night from the judges Monday. However, contestants are sent packing after receiving the lowest combined total of viewer and judges votes. The TV audience apparently didn’t rally to support Audrina and Tony.
Patridge may no longer be dancing, but she’s still going to be involved in a reality show. She revealed backstage that VH1 just picked up her new reality series, and she begins filming in January. According to Deadline.com, the series will follow Patridge and her family as they navigate the twists and turns of Hollywood.
The competition continues next week with a celebration of Dancing with the Stars' 200th episode. The event will feature 50 stars from past seasons, including former dancing champions, along with a musical performance by Taylor Swift. It airs Monday at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on ABC.
