As hard as it was to accept, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi tried to look on the bright side after her surprising elimination Monday from Dancing with the Stars.
"I'm happy and I'm grateful," she told PEOPLE backstage. "The show showed a different side of me, the mother side of me. And this whole experience has been so amazing. Everybody on the show is so amazing. I love them."
But the disappointment was evident, as she began to get choked up.
"I'm really sad to say goodbye to everybody," the Jersey Shore star, 25, admitted. "I just wasn't ready to go yet."

Luckily, he says that aside from feeling tired, he has not had to confront the more acute symptoms of the disease while performing on DWTS.

She came to inspire and enjoy the party.
And into week four of Dancing with the Stars Valerie Harper did just that and much more, sending a message of hope by savoring life after she was diagnosed with brain cancer earlier this year.
But on Monday night, sentiment finally yielded to the cold criteria of judging. After another low-scoring performance – this time an 18-point waltz – the 74-year-old star of TV's Rhoda was voted off the show.

These couples have dancing fever!
Jack Osbourne and wife Lisa hit up Hooray Henry's in West Hollywood Monday night after the season premiere of Dancing With the Stars for a fun night on the town.
Inside the venue, the two "were in good spirits," an onlooker told PEOPLE. Clad in a flannel shirt, Osbourne, 27, and his wife, 26, held court all night at a table near the entrance but refrained from drinking.
While Lisa hung out with her husband's pro partner (and the night's host) Cheryl Burke for a bit, the couple also "had a little bit of lovey-dovey time whispering in each other's ears and sharing laughs" later in the night, adds the source.

Dancing with the Stars brought out some unexpected stunners – and a standing ovation that drew tears – on Monday night's season 17 premiere.
Although early favorite Corbin Bleu wowed the crowd as predicted with a 24-point contemporary dance with partner Karina Smirnoff, it was Amber Riley, 27, who landed the near-perfect score.
Earning three nines, Riley's dance with Derek Hough had Bruno Tolioni calling the Glee actress the "tigress of season 17." Fellow judge Len Goodman said excitedly, "I'm palpitating, perspirating and flatulating."
