Why Lisa Vanderpump Fainted
The RHOBH star had a scare rehearsing for Dancing with the Stars.
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!
