Lisa Vanderpump -- and Giggy! -- React to 'DWTS' Elimination

"I could use the rest," says the Real Housewife.

Our ‘Wives are women of many talents. We’ve already discussed their singing careers at length, but Lisa Vanderpump can now add a run on Dancing with the Stars to her Housewife resume. The SUR owner and Beverly Hills cast member ended her stint on DTWS this week, after several rounds of intense competition. 

It was a tough run for Vanderpump—her busy work schedule, combined with the grueling DWTS rehearsal commitment took a toll on her. Vanderpump had been fighting a virus heading into her final week of competition, which ultimately cost her the win. “That [virus] was one of the hardest things to suffer from,” she told The Dish, exclusively. “I was absolutely exhausted.”

But, despite the elimination, Vanderpump still feels good about her DWTS experience.

“I couldn’t have had a nicer partner,” she raved. “Gleb Savchenko and I truly bonded and he’ll be my friend for life. It was more of the emotional attachment and the bonding that I was sad to lose.”

Vanderpump is taking her elimination in stride, and using the time to get some much needed rest. (And, we suspect, to spend a little quality time with our favorite pint-sized pup.)

“It was perfect timing for me to leave,” she told us. “In hindsight, I have so much going on. I’m running 16 businesses. I’m on two reality shows -- Vanderpump Rules and RHOBH. I could use the rest.”

And while ultimately that means Giggy will rest too, it might not be for long!:
