It was a big night for Dancing with the Stars Tuesday. As predicted, Tom Delay bowed out of the competition due to some stress fractures he's developed in his feet, and actress Debi Mazar was booted off after performing some not-so-fanciful footwook.
Although Delay has hardly been the strongest contestant throughout the show, he was actually the first to be declared safe for his samba dance this week, which likely made his decision to leave even more difficult. He said, "You can't practice, and if you can't practice you make a fool out of yourself out there, and I don't want to do that to Cheryl [his partner]." He may come back to dance on the show's finale if his feet are feeling up to it. Watch his performance below:

After being dismissed from the competition she said, "Well, I definitely know a few more steps and I've had a great time. I've loved every moment of it…I loved my time with Maks [her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy]."
