LOS ANGELES, May 14 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Marissa Jaret Winokur and her professional dance partner Tony Dovolani were the latest contenders voted off of "Dancing with the Stars."

"Ah, so close!" People.com quoted Winokur as saying as she and Dovolani took to the dance floor one last time after hearing they had been eliminated from the dance competition series.

"No one expected us to get this far," Jaret Winokur told host Samantha Harris. "I didn't expect us to get this far. Tony didn't expect me to get this far …This has been such an incredible, incredible experience."

People.com said she also told the studio audience and viewers at home, "I want everyone to go out and do something fun and do something that makes you feel sexy and shake what your momma gave you!"

Still in the running are Kristi Yamaguchi and Mark Ballas, Jason Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska, and Cristian de la Fuente and Cheryl Burke.

Jaret Winokur is best known for her Tony Award-winning performance in the Broadway musical "Hairspray."
