LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “Loveline” radio host “Psycho” Mike Catherwood was the first star eliminated on Season 12 of “Dancing with the Stars” on Tuesday night, a contestant who will be remembered by his co-stars for making them laugh and also go weak in the knees.
“Psycho Mike is a really smart guy and he’s a really funny guy,” Kirstie Alley told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson following Tuesday’s elimination show. “He’s a very talented guy, so, you know, he’ll be missed.”
“I love Psycho Mike,” pro Cheryl Burke — who is partnered with wrestler Chris Jericho — told Shaun. “I think I have a little crush on Psycho Mike, so sweet.”
Wendy Williams – though happily married – agreed with Cheryl telling Shaun, “I will miss his hotness ‘cause I could call him, ‘hot in the pants and sexy’ and he’s hot too!”
Kendra Wilkinson said she too was going to miss Mike and partner Lacey Schwimmer’s presence in the ballroom
“They bring that spunk, that goofiness to Monday nights and I’m going to miss it,” she told Shaun. “They loosen me up, they make me feel so good and I’m definitely going to miss that next week for sure.”
Shaun also caught up with Mike after he was delivered his “Dancing” elimination news and the radio personality had nothing but praise for his partner and co-stars.
“Lacey has been incredibly understanding and patient and she’s a great person,” he told Shaun. “I wish I had one bad thing to say about anybody in the cast, but everybody is so awesome. All the pro dancers, all the celebrity guests, they’ve been so supportive, there’s no snarkiness, there’s no competitiveness. Everybody is great people and if anything, I could take away awesome relationships that I’ve developed in this show.”
However, Mike does think his co-stars will suffer a little without his sage wisdom in the ballroom.
“I feel bad for the remaining cast members because they don’t have my advice on hand,” he continued. “I was the cast shrink, I was there when everybody needed me.”
Adding, “For instance, when Petra Nemcova would come to me and say, ‘Mike, I just don’t feel like I’m getting my quickstep, what should I do?’ I’d say, ‘Have sex with me Petra, That’ll cure everything.’”
“Dancing with the Stars” returns on Monday on ABC for another round of competition at 8 PM.
