Dang, Dancing with the Stars is not treating Lisa Vanderpump right!
Just last month, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star admitted that DWTS is extremely exhausting, but after she passed out and unfortunately fainted, she revealed that her fast-paced life is becoming a health threat!!
Miz Vanderpump said:
“I had to take off to New York for work Tuesday right after the elimination show. That night I took a red eye flight at 11 p.m., arriving in New York at 6 a.m. and heading straight to six hours of rehearsals upon landing.
After rehearsals, I ran back to my hotel for a quick change and headed to the Bravo Upfronts party, which wasn’t over until around 11 p.m. Then I had a light dinner and drink, and went to bed.
After a few hours of sleep, I was up bright and early at 6 a.m. to prepare to dance with my partner Gleb on Live with Kelly and Michael. We were performing an encore of the Viennese waltz, which I ended up doing barefoot! Then off we went to six hours of rehearsals again before catching a flight back to L.A. that evening.
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.
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.”
Considering that Lisa and her partner Gleb Savchenko are currently in the bottom three, we can see why the reality starlet is under so much pressure.
However, even though she fainted during rehearsals, she still plans on dancing the Cha Cha this today because at the end of the day… she's still in a competition!
We just hope she doesn't stress herself out too much because we wouldn't want her to be eliminated for health reasons like Dorothy Hamill was.
