She may have been inconsolable after her elimination, but now Kim Kardashian is breathing a sigh of relief that her Dancing With the Stars days are over.

"She's actually relieved because the judges were really harsh on her," Khloe Kardashian told PEOPLE on Saturday night in the VIP room at a Pepsi Smash concert at Nokia Theatre in New York.

"I'm so proud of her for doing it because Kim is so brutally shy. And don't really know that," she said. "For her to even commit to a show like that, it's growth for her."

Khloe -- who will star in the next season of Celebrity Apprentice -- couldn't make it to the show's taping, so she would text with Kardashian's beau, New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush.



"Reggie would be texting me, "Ugh, they were so mean!" or "She did so good!" Reggie and I would go crazy. He's in New Orleans, so he was watching it live," she told PEOPLE.

Is Kim embarrassed at all that she was booted off so early in the show? "No, not at all," she said. "She's proud of herself. She's definitely grown doing it."

Even after watching her sister face Dancing's tough judges, Khloe says she's ready to face the notoriously tough Donald Trump on Celebrity Apprentice.

"I'm not nervous. I don't get scared of ," she said. "Whatever I do, I have fun with it. If I get voted off, it is what it is. It was a great experience." -- Laura HahnJordan Strauss/WireImage
