Lisa Vanderpump was sadly eliminated from DWTS this week but even she agrees it is probably all for the best. Despite giving it the good ole college try, Lisa was a bit stiff and her competition was so steep that she didn’t stand a chance. I don’t watch DWTS because of the usual Bravo conflicts, but I will be pulling for Andy Dick to go as far as possible. It seems to mean a lot to him to improve and he is sort of inspirational. Yes, I did just say Andy Dick is inspirational. It’s late and I am tired but really, you just have to see him on the show. Trust me, he has great editing.
Here is what Lisa had to say about her elimination and falling ill on camera in an exclusive interview with US. “I have an element of relief, to be honest, because I have been feeling so crappy. I feel better today. It’s been an incredible experience, and you can’t minimize it, but wow, it’s been tough, absolutely. We went straight to the doctor and he said, ‘Your heart rate’s too fast, your blood pressure’s too low, you have a temperature.’ I was a mess, but what do you do? Fainting was weird though, I didn’t like seeing that on the playback.”
“I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t do it,” she said of competing. “I knew I wasn’t well rehearsed, but I wanted to give it my best try. “It’s been six long weeks! I’ve got two shows, I’ve got two businesses and a business under construction. I have a lot going on!”
FYI, I believe Lisa’s new business is her skin care line with her partner Dr. Simon Ourian. Dr. Ourian is a competitor of Paul Nassif’s and the Epione products are only available to his patients.
“We knew we weren’t going to win . . . I’m a 52-year-old restauranteur (sic), give me a break!”
Here is hoping Lisa is back to 100% very soon!
