Kathy Ireland tells she is "disappointed" she was booted off Tuesday's Dancing With the Stars.

"I would have loved to continue because it's been such an incredible experience," says the former swimsuit model, 46, who had the lowest score (tied at 18) Monday night from the judges.

She says the past six weeks with partner Tony Dovolani have been "amazing."

"What I've learned from him the past six weeks, I'll carry with me forever," says Ireland, who earlier this year dropped an impressive 25 lbs. she had gained after giving birth to three kids.

"When I walk into a meeting, all I can say is, 'Watch out,' because Tony's taught me to walk with confidence!" she continues. "I've got this power walk now! That's going to be cool!"
