It’s only week two at Dancing with the Stars and emotions are already running high.

Just minutes before her quickstep with partner Louis van Amstel Monday night, Kendra Wilkinson says, “There was a moment where I just wanted to walk off the stage.”

The reality star, who hopes the Dancing experience helps her overcome her stage fright, says she was rattled because she, like viewers at home, watched footage of her quickstep rehearsal. The video package showed the reality star in tears, emotional over the fact that she grew up a tomboy and now she’s dressing like a lady and trying to perform highly elegant moves on the dance floor.
