Transcript for Marla Maples Speaks Out After Her 'DWTS' Elimination
news, Los Angeles. ♪ It was a beautiful night, sadly Marla and Tony had to say their good-byes from the ballroom but you're here with us this morning and let me tell you something, Amy robach and I were there for the debut and we came back singing your praises. We absolutely thought you were beautiful throughout and so graceful. 50 and fabulous. Thank you. Embracing it. You were really shocked. I was stunned. I have to say for the first time in 21 seasons where I actually did not expect this at all. You know, because we had such a great journey she was growing every single week. It felt like we were really hitting our stride and when they announced us I literally was speechless. Were you surprised too, Marla. I was so sad. Truly my heart is broken. I love the show. I've had a rough few years and taught me how to not walk again but to dance and I hope we can keep sharing the fun. Great teacher. Hardest work. I'll bet. We saw tiffany in the front row. Bless her heart. That picture of you in the mermaid -- We lived in Sherman oaks in -- not even in junior high but middle school. Your most memorable dance, the jive, she had a job interview. She's now out interviewing. How about that? She graduates in may so the good news is now I can help her get ready for her graduation. It was going to be a little tough with "Dancing with the stars" to be the full time mom I like to be. This is full time if you get food and an hour of sleep in you're really doing well. She said she was scared at first about you, but now what is she saying? She's so proud. She's extremely sad we're still not in it because she knows how much it meant to me and Tony and how hard we worked. We worked so hard. We gave everything and, yes, so she's going to be all right. She's proud of her mom and that's what you want your babies to be. You want to inspire your children and I'm so grateful for all the women and daughters that have been so supportive and I just hope we can keep inspiring each other. Just -- I just want to hug you. I want you to hug me too. I do. Tony, I loved how you said last night and you just alluded to, you've been on virtually from the beginning. From the beginning. And you still have that passion and joy. Still love it. I still love it. Such a great opportunity to be a part of something so positive and this very interesting, you know, TV land I call it. What -- it's like my kids get to watch me do something positive. They get to see me bring people from not knowing how to dance to learning how to dance and really shining on the dance floor. It's actually a job that is like I can't even call it a job because I love it that much. It's much more than dance. So much more than ha. Teaching people how to live, let go. How to overcome certain aspects of insecurities and things like that so for me it really is an opportunity to show, you know, to share what I love doing with the masses. Life lessons and dance lessons. That's it absolutely. We had a few insecurities to overcome during this, too. Life is very parallel so, you know -- You watch with the girls. We watch every week. Everybody needs to dance. I learned that. You keep living. You keep dancing. I keep dancing and living, Marla. Thanks for coming in.
