'Dancing With the Stars'' Ron Artest Blames Toes for Results
Ron Artest -- the Los Angeles Laker who recently legally changed his name to Metta World Peace -- explained his elimination from Dancing With the Stars on Jimmy Kimmel Live Tuesday night.
"This toe doesn’t work, this one does,” World Peace said. "Toes not working! But still I’m good, I’m good!”

World Peace, who came in last place on the ABC show on Monday with 14 points, added, "I was just expecting the judges to see the effort and the entertainment."
He thanked partner Peta Murgatroyd, a first-time pro on the show. “Wasn’t she amazing?” he told the audience as they applauded.

Kimmel joked to World Peace that he would have won if he could have told viewers to "Vote for World Peace."
Safe on the show were E! reality star Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke and Headline News' Nancy Grace and pro Tristan MacManus.
Eleven contestants remain in competition for the mirror-ball trophy: Kardashian, Grace; actress and former talk show host Ricki Lake; actor David Arquette; transgender activist Chaz Bono; Kristin Cavallari and Carson Kressley; Iraq war veteran and soap actor J.R. Martinez; singer Chynna Phillips; model-actress (and George Clooney's ex) Elisabetta Canalis; and women’s soccer World Cup star Hope Solo.
