“DWTS” Sliwinska Quits Show Before Start of New Season

Just a day after the newest celebrity contestants were named for the 11th season of "Dancing With the Stars," one of the show's old pros is calling it quits.

Dancer Edyta Sliwinska is leaving the reality show before the new season starts, she confirmed via Twitter.

"I decided it's time to move on with my life, pursue other projects and finish school," she wrote in response to a report from TMZ.

According to the gossip website, the Polish beauty decided to depart after disagreements with the show's producers, a claim she contests. She reportedly wanted her husband, season one champ Alex Mazo, to play a bigger part of the series.

"We have different views but that's about it," she tweeted. "I'm grateful to the show but my life can't be limited to DWTS."

Sliwinska is the only professional dancer to have appeared on all ten seasons of ABC's reality hit.
