Kristin Cavallari eliminated from Dancing with the Stars

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Kristin Cavallari is heading off into the hills. The reality starlet was dismissed from "Dancing With the Stars" Tuesday.

Cavallari and professional partner Mark Ballas earned their highest scores of the season Monday, tying for third place, but fans failed to keep them in the contest.

Judges' scores are combined with viewer votes to determine which celebrity is ousted each week.

Basketball star Ron Artest, now known as Metta World Peace, and Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis were eliminated on previous episodes.

Returning to dance again next week will be Chaz Bono, Ricki Lake, Hope Solo, J.R. Martinez, Rob Kardashian, Nancy Grace, Chynna Phillips, Carson Kressley and David Arquette.
