K *erri-Anne Kennerley *has hit back at remarks she lost her confidence during her time on Dancing with the Stars.
Despite being one of the favourites to win the current series, the TV queen was surprisingly booted from the Seven show on Sunday night.
After her waltz, which didn't have any embarrassing stumbles as in previous weeks, judge *Helen Richey *said she believed Kennerley had lost the confidence she had displayed when the series kicked off.
"In respect to what Helen said last night, I think it is absolute rubbish," Kennerley told _AAA _ yesterday. "Just because a judge says it, it doesn't mean it is true, you know?"
Even though she had been overwhelmed by the public's support, especially after her dramatic exit from Nine late last year, the 58-year-old said she was a little surprised it hadn't been reflected in the votes.
"People have been fantastic, but clearly not enough support with the voting. But that is all right, we had a good time," she said.
Her biggest regret of not making it further in the competition was for her professional dance partner, *Morley *-raised *Carmelo Pizzino *.
"I was more disappointed for Carmelo - me, I had no expectations. It was a beautiful experience to have danced that much and that closely with a world champion," she said. "Carmelo has been sensational. I hope we see a lot more of each other in the future, because he only lives around the corner."
While Seven has signed her to a new, as yet unannounced project, Kennerley said she couldn't say when she would be back on the small screen.
"I don't have any answers for that, to be quite frank," she said.
"That is the next project and I will figure it out when they get around to locking it in. Until they decide to lock it into a timeslot, I don't think I have got answers."
Until then, Kennerley said she was looking forward to taking some time out and getting back on her beloved golf course. "I am going to get back to my golf and take all the lessons I learnt every day in the dance studio and take that into golf," she said. "And if I can do that on the golf course, I will be a very happy woman."ROSS McRAE
