With a staggering eight weeks of competition behind her, it's back to her two day jobs (hosting Clean House and The Insider) for Dancing With the Stars' jiggly one, Niecy Nash. As one of TV's busiest women, Niecy had a lot to be proud of while on the show. While juggling a family and a crazy work schedule, Niecy held her own against the competition with impressive scores and positive comments from the judges. She also became a dancer thanks to her partner, Loius van Amstel.
This week, Niecy and Louis had added pressure: two dances - the Viennese waltz and passé double. However, after receiving a combined total of 43 out of a possible 60 points, the writing might have been on the wall.
Though she might be gone, Niecy will still be there in spirit and in votes. "I'll be splitting my votes, between Evan Lysacek and Erin Andrews," said Niecy after the show. "I'm supporting Team Madonna," the dance team Niecy was a part of.
Next week, Dancing With the Stars is down to the wire as we find out who makes the finals and which three couples will be battling for the elusive mirror ball trophy.

Niecy Nash + Louis van Amstel
Eliminated May, 11
Everyone is going to miss you so much?
Niecy: Oh, you will be able to find me other places, I have a million jobs to watch.
Is there a little relief in leaving as now you can concentrate on all your other jobs?
Niecy: There's not a sense of relief. I still had another dance left in me so I happy I get to come back for the finals and shake a tail feather - both literally and figuratively. Hello! Get into that!
What did you learn about yourself through this process?
Niecy: The one thing I learned is that when pressed I might bend a little but I won't break. This was definitely a trying experience from time management to aching body parts, to seeing my family, learning something where I used a part of my brain I have never used before.
What will you miss about it?
Louis: I'll miss all the shenanigans, mayhem, foolishness. We all talk like Niecy now. Erin comes in and is like, 'Get into it!" It's infectious. She makes everything funny and to me I'd be bothered and frustrated if all that took place instead of growth and that didn't happen. It made it even more productive. The show will be missing something.
Niecy: I'll miss nothing! My babies were a broken bag of bones. I had to do so much counseling and inspiring and mentoring, passing out snacks and juice boxes - wooh! It was a handful (laughs). I'll miss seeing the people consistently. Everyone has busy schedules and at some point we will come back together. Especially Erin and Evan. GO TEAM MADONNA!
Louis: They are most down to earth - what you see is what you get with them.
Will you continue to dance?
Louis: She had better, and not with anyone else.
Niecy: OH? Wel,l I guess I have been told. I might take you something else and be finished dancing.
Louis: You can only do one dance with someone else.
Niecy: Oh, my wedding dance. He already said he'd be my maid of honor. Where's Vera Wang? There's no date set, but we are working on it.
Louis: You are working on it.
