Singing Legend Gladys Knight was voted off of “Dancing With the Stars” Tuesday night, saying the exit is bittersweet.
Knight started a health program shortly before partnering up with professional dancer Tristan MacManus for the show and it’s resulted in a the loss of 60 pounds.
“[Tristan] helped [by] wearing me out,” Knight told reporters after she was eliminated, adding that Freshology’s Getslim with the Stars program helped her lose weight.
“You’ve got to eat healthy and you’ve got to put a little movement into it,” she says.
For breakfast, for example, Knight says her pre-rehearsal meals consisted of a PowerBar, a protein drink and fruit.
Knight leaves with a slimmer silhouette, saying, “[I won’t forget] the family and friends I’ve made, the knowledge I’ve gained,” Knight explains. “It wasn’t just about dancing, but getting to know different personalities and how they operate and carry themselves. There are so many life lessons here.”
