Spoiler alert! After weeks of getting high marks from the judges and going head to head with Jennifer Grey for the top spot of the “Dancing With the Stars” leader board week after week, Brandy was eliminated on “Dancing With the Stars: The Results Show” on Tuesday night.
With a tearful goodbye to the cast behind her, the singer talked candidly about her shocking elimination. “Of course there’s some part of me that goes, ‘whoa,’ you know, ‘I can’t believe this.’ I can’t focus on that,” Brandy says. “I have to focus on what I’ve gained and what has happened to me and how I’ve transformed into a completely different person.”
Brandy gives her dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy credit for that transformation. “I owe a lot to Maks because he’s helped me tremendously with my insecurities and being confident,” she said.
Chmerkovskiy added, “The show is phenomenal in, you know, setting up careers and opening up doors and, in brandy’s case, re-opening certain opportunities and I think that, you know, she gets out of this everything.”
Up next for Brandy is the second season of her VH1 reality show with her family called “Brandy and Ray J: A Family Business” and she says she’s working on new music for a sixth studio release due out next year.

By the way Ray J will be live in studio on the Russ Parr Morning Show tomorrow (11/18) at 8am.
