pamela-tristan-230.jpgPamela Anderson and her pro partner Tristan MacManus were sent home on Tuesday evening, making them the first elimination for the new season of Dancing With The Stars.

Emmitt Smith and partner Cheryl Burke were in the lead with 24.5 points, and it was Bristol Palin, Drew Lachey and Anderson in the bottom three. The former Baywatch babe and MacManus were in last place with 17 points, so it doesn't come as that much of a shock, but we figured they'd at least keep her around for a few episodes!

When asked about being cut, Pammy told the hosts, "I was ready for it for sure. But we'll keep dancing ... it doesn't end here."

So now we're wondering if she's going to continue taking tango lessons from tatted up Tristan ... you know they'd be a great match!
