LOS ANGELES, April 11 (UPI) -- Television personality Sherri Shepherd and her professional dance partner Val Chmerkovskiy have been voted off of "Dancing with the Stars" in Los Angeles.

"I just want to say thank you for letting me live a dream I've always had," a tearful Shepherd said after learning her fate Tuesday night.

"I had the most amazing partner, Val Chmerkovskiy," she said. "That thing that scares you the most, run towards it because it's so amazing on the other side ... I had the most amazing time."

Shepherd is an actress, stand-up comedian and co-host of "The View." She also is a former cast member of the sitcoms "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "Less Than Perfect."

Still in the running for the coveted mirror-ball trophy, along with their professional dance partners, are actress Melissa Gilbert, actor Jaleel White, football player Donald Driver, "Extra" host Maria Menounos, Disney Channel star Roshon Fegan, actor-model William Levy, and singers Gladys Knight, Gavin DeGraw and Katherine Jenkins.
