Oscar winner Tatum O'neal is bitter about being kicked off reality TV contest Dancing With The Stars, claiming the show's judges savaged her.

The actress was voted off the show last week (13JAN06) and she's still reeling from the way judges treated her.

She fumes, "I'm just glad I'm never gonna, hopefully, run into them again. It was just brutal... they (judges) were brutal to me."

And O'Neal fears the hit show isn't encouraging people to learn how to dance.

She adds, "This is not helping to encourage people to learn to dance. This is about some brutality and shaming."
