"Tony had great routines. I guess I just wasn't able to bring my personality to the dance floor, because I'm not a dancer... I feel like I dance better now than I did prior. It was a wonderful experience," the daytime talk show host said during a Wednesday morning appearance on Good Morning America.
Williams said she wasn't phased by Dancing with the Stars judge Len Goodman's comment that her "dumplings" were "boiling out" during Monday night's performance show when she and Dovolani performed a foxtrot, which earned them only 15 out of a 30 possible points.
"The costumes were made by Dancing with the Stars, and I have to love the pageantry of the show. I took it all in fun. I'm from Jersey, so I appreciate the over-the-topness of it," Williams said.
While The Wendy Williams Show star said she really enjoyed her time on Dancing with the Stars, she also wanted to forewarn potential future contestants about the show's demanding time commitment.
"In reality, I would caution who's going to be onDancing with the Stars. Just make sure that -- if you do it, you'll be in the best shape of your life -- but your whole life will be upside down. I was doing the talk show at the same time," Williams explained, adding that she missed her family and beauty rest while on the show.
"It hurts, because we have a 10-year-old, I'm married, and I have responsibilities here. I'm going to be 47 this summer and it takes a little bit more than oatmeal scrub and a catnap to keep it together. I launched my game show on the Game Show Network. I just had all balls in the air and some really patient and cooperative people around me."
In addition, Dovolani sized up the season's remaining Dancing with the Stars contestants and revealed who he has pegged as his favorites to win the competition.
"I'm liking [Disney Channel star Chelsea Kane]. I like [actor Ralph Macchio]. I really do like [NFL football star Hines Ward]. He's really great. He has a lot of great personality. He moves his body really well. He's got good command of it," Dovolani said.
"But I think the dark horse might be [WWE wrestler Chris Jericho] because a lot of people don't see the fact that he's got great presence. He holds himself really good and he partners [Cheryl Burke] really well."
