Teary-eyed Anderson is first celeb voted off Dancing with the Stars
An emotional Pamela Anderson was the first celebrity to be eliminated from Dancing With the Stars last Tuesday. After just one dance, the viewers and judges voted out the busty Baywatch beauty, 45, and her pro-dancing partner Tristan MacManus. Pammy performed a shaky routine last Sunday which left her close to tears when confronted with the judges. "I don't want to be the first person to cry on Dancing With the Stars," she said as she was awarded a meagre 17 points -- leaving her and Tristan at the bottom of the scoreboard on the show's first all-star season. "I screwed up so many things," she told her partner. Before her elimination, the former Playboy cover girl pleaded with the judges to let her stay. "The dance last night was very emotional," said the Borat actress, who used to be married to rocker Tommy Lee. "I put a lot of personal stuff into each performance and I just want to do more of it," she said. The Barb Wire star attributed her poor performance to nerves and inexperience. "I think emotions sometimes take over and also I've been travelling a lot, I probably should have rehearsed more... and they're right,"she stuttered, looking at the judges.
"I should have put a lot more effort in, and I'm going to because next week we have such a great dance and I really want to get to it," she begged while nervously licking her lips.

Spielberg opens up about dyslexia battle
He has a career spanning nearly 40 years, and a life most people envy.
But scratch beneath the surface, and Steven Spielberg is just a very ordinary man with ordinary problems -- even struggling from dyslexia. The Schindler's List director was only diagnosed five years ago, and credits film-making with helping him to express himself. He said: "I never felt like a victim. Movies really helped me... kind of saved me from shame, from guilt. Making movies was my great escape."
Speaking to the Friends of Quinn website, the Oscar-winner added: "When I felt like an outsider, movies made me feel inside my own skill set."
The Cincinnati-born star certainly hasn't allowed the learning disability to interfere with his professional life. Having begun his career back in 1973, the 65-year-old continues to work today, with his latest project Lincoln set for release in November.
