Graceful exit: Nancy Grace bids Dancing With the Stars goodbye while Rob Kardashian narrowly avoids elimination

By Laura Schreffler

Last updated at 9:48 AM on 9th November 2011

It was a close call, but Rob Kardashian was saved from elimination tonight on Dancing With the Stars as Nancy Grace was sent home instead.

The 52-year-old talk show host lived up to her last name and made a graceful, tear-free exit from the ABC show when her name was called as the booted contestant.

'I am so proud,' she told co-host Brooke Burke when asked how she felt about narrowly missing next week's semi-finals.


Grace-ful exit: Nancy Grace and partner Tristan MacManus were eliminated from Dancing With the Stars tonight


The last dance: Grace gave it her all but narrowly missed the semi-finals

She then turned sentimental, saying that having Tristan MacManus as a partner had made the show a wonderful experience.


'I really cannot take the credit [for my performances]', she said. 'It's been all Tristan from the get-go. It's been the whole crew at Dancing With the Stars. It's been my whole family who took care of [my] twins so that I could dance.'

She then looked poignantly at her partner, touched his face and said: 'But especially to you, Trist, I thank you.'


The bottom two: Either Rob Kardashian or Nancy Grace could have been eliminated tonight


So relieved: 24-year-odl Rob Kardashiasn is happy to still be on the show

The Irish dancer, though initially shocked by the decision, seemed moved by Grace's goodbye and said: 'It's not about being the best. It's about doing your best, and that's what we did.'

Also moved was Grace's new pal Ricki Lake, who embraced the legal commentator fiercely after learning of her elimination.

The 43-year-old talk show host later tweeted to her pal: 'Getting to know u is one of the highlights. Xoxo.'

Grace responded: '@RickiLake you are a lovely person...I adore you!'


Shock an awe? The talk show host seems unsurprised by the decision, unlike her dance partner


Fish face: She may be making faces, but the 52-year-old went out rather gracefully


Fond of one another: Nancy and Tristan almost made the semi-finals


Friends forever: Ricki Lake tweeted that a highlight of appearing on DWTS was getting to know Grace

Rob Kardashian realised how lucky he was to still be in the running, though he talked a big game to partner Cheryl Burke last night.

'I haven't gotten this far in years!' the 27-year-old dancer exclaimed.

Rob's response? 'It's time for a change, sweetheart.'

The 24-year-old reality star's sisters were all very vocal after his safety was announced, including 31-year-old Kim.


Happy feet: Rob has far surpassed his sister Kim, who was eliminated early on her season of DWTS


The look of safety: Rob and partner Cheryl Burke are going on to the semi-finals in Las Vegas


Safe! J.R. Martinez and partner Karina Smirnoff were the first couple sent to safety

She is in the midst of working things out with husband Kris Humphries, of whom she recently filed for divorce after 72 days of marriage.

'I truly can't express how proud I am of @RobKardashian & @CherylBurke 4 working so far 2 get 2 the semi finals!' she wrote tonight. 

Eldest sister Kourtney, 32, also congratulated her brother via Twitter. 'Thanks to all for voting for my brother @RobKardashian! Thank goodness he is safe. I love nancy grace so I am sad to see her go!'


Sparring no more: Hope Solo and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy were the second couple sent to safety


The look of happiness: The American footballer threw her arms up in a sign of victory

Khloe, 26, was by far the most emotional of his sisters.

'OMG!!!!!!! Rob is safe!!!! Thank you so much for your support!!!! Wow!!!! This is amazing!!!!' she tweeted effusively.

She added: 'I love how he is improving and gaining confidence :).'


To be or not to be: Ricki Lake and partner Derek Hough wait to hear if they're safe or in jeopardy


Winning! The former talk show host is happy to hear that she is still in the running

Also more confident this week was dancing couple Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy. They have improved the most in recent weeks, translating their usual sparring into great dancing.

The American footballer tied 43-year-old Lake and her partner, Derek Hough, for second place this week.

War hero J.R. Martinez and partner Karina Smirnoff are in first place.

The four remaining couples will dance their way toward the Mirror Ball trophy next week.


The performances: Florida performed two songs on Dancing With the Stars tonight


The judges: Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli clap for the eliminated Grace
