Kendra and former The Girls Next Door star and van Amstel became the sixth couple ousted from the competition based on the combination of the Dancing with the Stars judges' scores they had received during Monday night's performance show and the home viewer votes that were cast afterwards.
"I've lasted seven weeks -- seven weeks longer than I ever thought I would last, seriously," Wilkinson said following her ouster.
"First of all, I want to thank Louis for sticking with me and not fighting with me. Second of all, of course I want to thank my family. I want to thank [my husband] Hank [Baskett] for being there for me every step of the way. I want to thank my baby, Hank, for being there, too. Baby Hank, I'm coming home for you. I'm not the best dancer, but I am the best mom. I'm coming home and I'm back to being a mom."
"It's been an awesome journey. We're finishing on a high. I love you. You have come so far; I'm so proud of you," van Amstel told his partner.
