(Newser) – Kim Kardashian was inconsolable after being the surprise elimination on Dancing with the Stars last night, People reports. Off camera, Kardashian ran to her family and broke down into tears. "I just hope that her time on the show was magical for her," said her dancing partner. 

But the reality TV star struggled with one big obstacle along the way: “What people don’t realize about her,” stepfather Bruce Jenner said, “Is that she is incredibly shy. She’s a smart business woman, but a very shy and quiet girl.”
