There will be a new crop of celebrities hitting the ballroom during season 11 ofÂ ABC‘sÂ Dancing With the Stars, but don’t expect to see any of them partnered up with dance pro Edyta Sliwinska. After ten seasons of competing, the ballroom expert has bowed out of the competition, quitting to focus on other areas of her life.
“I decided it’s time to move on with my life, pursue other projects and finish school,” Edyta Sliwinska tweeted on Monday night. TMZ reported that Sliwinska decided to quite the dance competition because of a major disagreement with the producers who wanted the show to be her career. They also claimed that the ballroom beauty was upset that Dancing With the Stars didn’t involve her husband, season one champion Alec Mazo, in the show more.
Edyta Sliwinska denies TMZ’s reports that her departure from the show is due to a dispute with the producers. “TMZ terribly misquoted and misinterpreted everything I said,” Sliwinska tweeted. “But the truth is that I’m moving on.Â I never said anything about ‘major disagreement with production’ of DWTS. We have different views but that’s about it. I’m grateful to theÂ show but my life can’t be limited to DWTS.”
She spoke specifically to her fans, writing, “I hope you understand. Please know that you guys, the audience was the best part of the experience.”
