Lachey has been blogging for PEOPLE.com about his return to the ballroom with pro Anna Trebunskaya for the DWTS all-stars seasonthough the pair were eliminated on Oct. 9.

Well, all good things must come to an end. This past Monday, Helio [Castroneves] and I were the victims of a double elimination. I wish I could say this came as a complete surprise, but that wouldn't be all together true.

I had already been in the bottom 2 in week one, and my judges' scores weren't as good as some of the other competitors. Even with those facts, I thought our cha-cha was good enough to keep us in the competition. Anna and I were the first couple to perform this week, and we scored a 24 with our dance that we performed to Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love."

Tuesday night's double-elimination on Dancing with the Stars produced sighs of relief from saved bottom scorers Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas – but eliminated pair Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya were left with feelings of angst.

"Oh, my gosh, I was so robbed!" Trebunskaya, 31, told reporters backstage after she and Lachey, 36, learned their fate. "Are you kidding me? I have an amazing partner. We had so much fun together. I feel robbed of having the fun of working with this person."

Lachey supported his partner's sentiments.

Well, it has been an eventful week. It started off with Joey Fatone being eliminated from the competition. This came as a shock to all of us. With scores in the middle of the pack and a strong fan base, everybody thought he would be safe.

Joey was the person who was always cracking a joke and keeping it light when things would get stressful. It just once again shows you that this show is about so much more than just dancing. He will be missed.

"Everyone has an optimism about themselves, and I'm very confident that I did enough to maintain," the boxing legend told PEOPLE. "But that's life. Life is surprising sometimes. Life is shocking sometimes. But you know what? I've gotten down, and I've always gotten back up."

Leonard, 54, was especially bothered about his dismissal because he finally was getting the hang of how things work in the ballroom.
