Teresa Giudice's journey on "Dancing with the Stars" Season 31 was cut short after her elimination this week.

The 50-year-old reality star took to Instagram Wednesday to break her silence on social media after being eliminated from the reality dance competition.

Giudice posted a video of her full performance with her pro dance partner Pasha Pashkov and accompanied it with a lengthy caption to express her thoughts and gratitude after the second week of "DWTS."

"@pashapashkov thank you so much for all your time [and] patience. Dancing on @dancingwiththestars was a dream come true! I'll keep dancing [and] hold on to everything you taught me! Can't wait to come back [and] dance with you on the finale," she wrote.

The "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star continued, "A special thanks to my loving husband and wonderful children for supporting me through this adventure! Thank you to everyone who voted, it was a very exciting time! Love, love, love you all!"

Encouraging messages instantly poured in for the TV personality, who became the second celebrity to be eliminated from the competition.

"Thank you for your kind words @teresagiudice. Definitely keep dancing and next time I come over to visit I wanna see all those new dance moves you'll learn," Pashkov responded to her message.

"You are amazing, mom [red heart emoji]," Teresa's eldest daughter, Gia Giudice, 21, commented.

"You did a fantastic job for someone who isn't a natural dancer ... You had such grace when being eliminated, even though we all know you had it in you to go further," a fan wrote.

Before Giudice and Pashkov's elimination this week, the first dancing couple to be sent home this season were Jason Lewis and Peta Murgatroyd.

Murgatroyd reacted to Giudice's elimination on the latter's post, saying, "Sad to see you go, babe. You were amazing and wish you could've stayed longer."

Before the premiere of "DWTS" Season 31 on Disney+ on Sept. 19, Giudice revealed on "Good Morning America" that she received some advice from her youngest daughter, 13-year-old Audriana, who has been competing in dance competitions for years.

According to the celebrity mom, her daughter told her to have fun, to not be scared and to feel the energy of her dance partner. Audriana also encouraged her to "dance like it's your last time dancing."

Aside from Gia and Audriana, Teresa, who is now married to businessman Luis Ruelas, also shares two other daughters with her ex-husband, Joe Giudice — Gabriella, 17, and Milania, 16.
