LOS ANGELES — A high-scoring command performance couldn’t keep Denise Richards on “Dancing With the Stars.”

The 38-year-old actress was eliminated from the hit ABC show Tuesday.

Richards said after Monday’s performance that she “would be shocked” not to be in the dance off with her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy — a last chance to improve her judges’ scores and remain in the competition.

Despite what the judges said was an improved samba, the couple failed to dominate against fellow low-scoring couple, reality star Holly Madison and Dmitry Chaplin.
