A “furious” Anne Heche left the Dancing With the Stars set Monday after being eliminated following a mix-up, Page Six reports. Heche refused to do press and left the lot immediately.
Heche wasn’t theonly one who was confused after new host Tyra Banks announced that Cheer coach Monica Aldama and pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy were safe, when they were actually trailing the pack. Then, Banks said that Heche and pro Keo Motsepe, and Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd were the bottom two, leaving Chrishell Stause and Gleb Savchenko onstage amid the confusion.
Then, Banks called Aldama and Chmerkovskiy back to the stage to face elimination. “There has been an error in the control room. This is the craziness of live TV,” the supermodel said during the confusion. “I’m so sorry. This is live TV.”
But the pair were saved, and Heche was sent home. Banks tweeted: “Wowzers. Live TV. Wrong name on cards. So challenging to deal with moments like these. But we power through.”
Others weren’t as blithe. Chmerkovskiy compared Banks’ error to Steve Harvey‘s infamous snafu at the 2015 Miss Universe pageant, when he announced the wrong winner.
“Just got Steve Harvey’d #dwts,” he tweeted.
