Ric's wife Paulina was the first to be eliminated on Dancing with the stars. I don't want to go on a rant about how ridiculous of a decision this was but I will because its my page and I can. The show basically is a popularity contest which weighs heavily in favor of the men. Because men are expected to be nimrods on the dance floor any decent showing by a man the judges give them a good score even though they suck.
The second half of the judging is viewer popularity call in. It's been a while since Paulina has been in the spotlight so she didn't get the push from the call voting she needed. The real scoop was she tried hard was a very good dancer and was one of the most likeable people on the show during the bio segments. What Paulina didn't know was that besides her immediate family and friends is she had a whole slew of Ric fans voting for her from their homes all of which were pretty pissed when she got voted off.
