Elisabetta Canalis is the second pseudo-celebrity to be eliminated from this season of Dancing with the Stars. Canalis, whose acting credits include Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo, is perhaps best known to American audiences for dating George Clooney rather than her acting career. Despite posting decent dancing scores for early in the season, this lack of renown is likely responsible for Canalis’ early ouster.
“Maybe dance is not my thing – I’m not going to lie,” the Italian actress tells People magazine. “This show was challenging because I had to learn how to ballroom dance.” It is unclear what kind of show Canalis thought she was signing up for; perhaps the language barrier is responsible for the misunderstanding.
If Canalis endeared herself in your heart even during her short stint on Dancing with the Stars, you can also find her this month in PETA’s ongoing “I’d rather go naked than wear fur” campaign.
