It's her first day of freedom from those grueling Dancing With the Stars rehearsals, so Elisabetta Canalis treated herself to a low-key shopping trip with her adorable pups in Beverly Hills, on Wednesday.

The Italian TV personality was eliminated from the show last night after scoring a total of 21 out of 30 points for her dance routine with partner Val Chmerkovskiy, but was her dance performance really to blame?

Struggling to dance with injured knees, Chaz Bono had a hard time getting through his dance routine and scored a mere of 17 points, the lowest of the night.

Is Dancing With the Stars based completely on skill, or is it more of a popularity contest?
