Teresa Giudice reacts to ‘Dancing With the Stars’ elimination

Teresa Giudice’s “Dancing With the Stars” journey has come to an end.

The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star and her pro partner, Pasha Pashkov, were sent home during “Elvis Night” on Monday after landing in the bottom two for the second week in a row.

“Listen, it was an amazing experience. I had an amazing partner,” Giudice, 50, told Page Six via Zoom following her elimination.

“Finally, my dream came true. I’ve always wanted to dance,” she added. “I did two dances in front of a live audience and it was pretty amazing. It was great.

Giudice and Pashkov received a total score of 23/40 – one of the lowest of the night – from the judges for their jive to “All Shook Up” during the Elvis Presley-themed episode.

After landing in the bottom, the pair were then eliminated after head judge Len Goodman broke a tie and voted to save actress Cheryl Ladd and her pro partner, Louis Van Amstel, over “#TeamPashibiliTRE.”

“Yeah, I don’t think Len liked me really that much,” Giudice told reporters in the post-show presser, laughing. “I don’t think he liked me. I knew Len was not going to pick me. I knew he was going to pick Cheryl over me. I knew already … I had a feeling.”

Giudice added that it’s “all good” though because she had a feeling she wasn’t going to be crowned the Season 31 winner.

“I wanted to win the mirrorball … but you know what? There’s a lot of amazing dancers on this show, so I knew I wasn’t going to [win],” she admitted. “When I saw my competition, I’m like, ‘I’m definitely not winning it.’ But I tried!”

The reality star and her pro partner, Pasha Pashkov, also landed in the bottom two last week.

Despite being eliminated, Giudice is staying positive and said she’s looking forward to now having extra time to spend with her new husband, Luis “Louie” Ruelas.

The two tied the knot in August, one month before she began rehearsals for the dance competition series.

“I just got married and then I started doing ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ so it’s like I left my husband,” she explained. “I felt really bad, so at least now I get to go home and spend time with [him]’cause I am a newlywed.”

Giudice also revealed who from the “Housewives” franchise she’d nominate next to do “DWTS.” Other ladies who’ve previously competed on the show include Kenya Moore, Erika Jayne, Lisa Vanderpump, Lisa Rinna, Nene Leakes and Kim Zolciak-Biermann.

“Jennifer Aydin,” she told Page Six, before noting that her co-star came to support her in the ballroom. “I was going to ask Cynthia [Bailey] to come next week but … too late now.”

“Dancing With the Stars” returns Monday for “James Bond Night” at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT on Disney+. The remaining contestants include Wayne Brady, Selma Blair, Vinny Guadagnino, Jordin Sparks, Charlie D’Amelio and Heidi D’Amelio.
