Hope Solo Cries Backstage After 'Dancing with the Stars' Elimination

| by I Need My Fix

Last night's Dancing With The Stars eliminated Hope Solo and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy in a much talked about season that saw tension between these two and these two and the judges. This leaves J.R. Martinez, Rob Kardashian and Ricki Lake as the three celebrities heading into next week's final show that will see them do three dances.

Despite the bravado, Hope was so upset by her elimination that she barely got through her first backstage interview before breaking down in tears and excusing herself from the remaining interviews. 

Normally the eliminated star and professional dancer appear that night on the Jimmy Kimmel show but last night all three finalists were on the show which worked out just as well considering how upset Hope was.

Sorry, but while Hope did improve she was not that strong of a dancer and could never take the judge's criticism objectively. They are judges. They judge. It's what they do. It's too bad Hope couldn't learn from that or just carry on despite what she perceived to be personal attacks.

Are you surprised that Hope was eliminated last night? Who do you think will win the mirror trophy ball?
