<p><span></span><strong>Ron Artest</strong>, who officially changed his name to<strong> Metta World Peace</strong>, was the first to leave <a href="http://dynamic.bauerpublishing.com/mt-search.fcgi?blog_id=2&tag=dancing%20with%20the%20stars&limit=20&IncludeBlogs=2"><em>Dancing With the Stars</em></a>, but he tells <em>Life & Style</em> he plans to dance again soon - with fellow competitor <strong>Nancy Grace</strong>! "One day I'd like to take her clubbing!" he tells <em>Life & Style</em>.</p>
And it appears the feeling is mutual. "On a personal level, I really hate to see him leave," tough-talking TV host Nancy tells Life & Style. "We were together for a long time. Not just on a dancing level -- we kind of hung out. I know it's mismatched!"
The LA Laker had been looking forward to dancing the quickstep next week, but his time was cut short when he was eliminated on Tuesday's results show. Still, he went out in good spirits. "I didn't want to leave that last impression on TV as sad," he says about cheering during his departure.
After all, the dad of four says dancing is already helping him on the court. "I play basketball now and my feet feel a little bit lighter and my hips a little bit better," he tells Life & Style.
Watch Dancing With the Stars Mondays at 8 p.m. and Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on ABC.
