KIM KARDASHIAN finally ended her self-exile since her disastrous promotional trip to Australia because she was seen cheering on her brother, ROB at ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars” the other night.

Was this the reason why Rob and partner Cheryl Burke got three perfect 10′s from the judges? Because they were so inspired by her presence?

On the other hand, maybe judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli, and Len Goodman were so busy staring at Kim in amazement, they never really got to take a closer look at Rob‘s freestyle number…

Kim was flanked by momager, Kris Jenner, and sisters, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian.

Oddly enough, Kim was dressed in a suit…none of her skintight and flirty numbers…to cheer her brother on, and she didn’t display any outright exuberance, either as she politely clapped and bared some teeth for Rob. Would’ve looked suspicious if she didn’t…and even more so if she didn’t show up at all.

Apparently, her somber face wasn’t working enough to stir up public sympathy to her “plight.” But she still has one more card up her sleeve: she’s planning to use the soon-to-premiere season of “Kourtney & Kim Take New York” to publicly bash Kris Humphries as a verbally abusive and belittling sort of husband.

But will that strategy keep her detractors from signing the “No More Kardashian” petition that has swelled to 165,700 signatures, to date?

Take a quick look at tuxedo-clad Kim in the audience at Rob Kardashian‘s “DWTS” freestyle number and tell us what you think…
