Lisa Vanderpump had a scare during rehearsals for Dancing with the Stars last week. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, who is currently shaking her moneymaker with dance partner Gleb Savchenko, has a lot -- maybe too much --on her plate. So when she passed out last Thursday during DWTS rehearsals, she knew something was wrong.
“By the time Thursday rehearsals rolled around -- let's just say I was exhausted and everything felt off. Gleb and I were rehearsing our cha cha and suddenly I just blacked out,” Lisa wrote in her People.com blog.
“I was in shock when I woke up. I fainted only once before in my life. The doctor found that I had a viral infection with fever and swollen glands. And between trying to fight that and all of the stress on my body from running around, I ended up with low blood pressure and a rapid heart rate, which is why I fainted.”
Luckily, Lisa took a bit of time to recuperate, but that didn't mean she stayed off the dance floor for long!
“I am still fighting the bug and feeling under the weather but I am staying in the game as long as they say I can,” she wrote. “And I will give it my best!”
Lisa and Gleb found themselves in the bottom in last night's competition, but that doesn't mean they're down for the count. Good luck during the Results Show tonight, Lisa!
I am watching DWTS because of you Lisa and I was so shocked when you fainted. Your poor partner was clueless though ... glad you are ok and that you got through your dance, in which I thought you were absolutely adorable. I cracked up everytime your partner was trying to be affectionate, roughly grabbing and pressing your head to his shoulder because the expression on your face was priceless! I could tell you were thinking " you are ruining my hair and make up darling " lol.
nicole.lea.509 no its more that she's awkward being cloes to a guy when she's been with Ken for over 30 years! she was only about 20 when she met him so it must be weird having to be that close to another guy after so long.
Come on Lisa! Don't disappoint me ! I didn't believe your faint, you should prepare Gleb better. ( to follow you on your hoax) You sign up to dance and to practice and to prepare yourself to dance and you are getting paid for it! So do it! And don't fake fainting. You owe this to your fans!
@firecracker Give me a break! Why bother using your energy to follow Lisa's blog just to write that. Your are obviously a "nutcracker"!
You danced great and you looked great under the circumstances.
As a big fan I could see you didn't feel your usual spunky self. Hopefully all the fan votes will keep you going.. I love seeing you on this show. You were definitely the right housewife to be on this show.
