For the first time in the 13 seasons of “Dancing With the Stars,” an athlete was ousted first. In this case, it’s Ron Artest, who inexplicably changed his name to Metta World Peace.
The Los Angeles Laker with the blonde hair and clompish moves had the lowest judges’ score of 14 and obviously couldn’t generate the votes to make up the difference.
Although Atlantan Nancy Grace was paired with Artest at the bottom, she wasn’t necessarily the celebrity with the second-lowest votes.
Surprisingly, George Clooney’s ex Elisabetta Canalis made it past the first week despite a tepid performance and virtually no name recognition. Ditto with Rob Kardashian, someone I thought would be out early as well.
