And the second contestant to go from season 11 of Dancing with the Stars is . . . Wendy Williams!

The 46-year-old talk show host was voted off the hit ABC show Tuesday night, following radio DJ Mike Catherwood, 32, who was eliminated March 29.

"This has been a wonderful opportunity. I want to thank the judges and I want to thank Tony [Dovolani] for teaching me how to dance," Williams said at the end of Tuesday's broadcast. "Despite stereotypes, this is one black girl who can't even doing the running man!"

Williams' departure shouldn't come as a surprise to diehard DWTS fans; her foxtrot with Dovolani, 37, earned the lowest scores on Monday night (15/30).

"To be honest, it was a struggle. It lacked fluidity. There was no movement," judge Len Goodman, 66, told them on Monday. "It was a dance more suited to the radio. It just wasn't great to watch."

With her dancing days now over, Williams said she's excited to get back to her normal routine.

"I was probably the busiest person in terms of flying back and forth," Williams -- who traveled from L.A. to New York in order to film her talk show -- said. "In addition to that, I have a child, a marriage and litany of other things [to focus on]."
