The Second Elimination

After a wonderfully entertaining night celebrating the magic of Disney and "Dancing with the Stars," it unfortunately was time to say goodbye to another of our celebrity dancers. This week, Carole Baskin and partner Pasha once again found themselves in the bottom two, this time with Anne Heche and her partner Keo. All three judges agreed that, while Anne and Keo have some work to do, they should stay in the competition, and it was time to say goodbye to Carole.
