Wendy Williams discussed being booted from“Dancing With the Stars” on “Good Morning America” today, offering a warning to future participants. “I happened 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, but in reality I would caution anybody who’s going to be on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ ” she said. “If you do it, you’ll be in the best shape of your life, but your whole life will be upside down.” While dancing her feet into oblivion, the 46-year-old was commuting back from Los Angeles to New York to film her syndicated talk show, “The Wendy Williams Show.” She also has a 10-year-old child.

Still Williams says “DWTS” was a good thing overall. ”I feel like I dance better now than I did prior, and it was a wonderful experience,” she said.
