Lisa Vanderpump Reveals Why She “Blacked Out” During DWTS Rehearsal

We almost fainted ourselves when we heard Lisa Vanderpump passed out during a rehearsal of the cha cha for Dancing With the Stars. With her commitment to the dancing competition, her starring role on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and spinoff show Vanderpump Rules to deal with (not to mention her off-camera duty of running dining hotspot SUR), Lisa’s plate is very full.

In a blog post for People, Lisa blamed her fatigue on a packed schedule and too much cross-country traveling. Six-hour long practices coupled with appearances on Live With Kelly and Michael and the Bravo Upfronts party left her exhausted.

“By the time Thursday rehearsals rolled around – let's just say I was exhausted and everything felt off,” Lisa Vanderpump wrote. “Gleb and I were rehearsing our cha cha and suddenly I just blacked out.”

“I was in shock when I woke up,” Lisa continued. “I fainted only once before in my life.”

A doctor later diagnosed the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star with a viral infection, which was exacerbated by the stress of Lisa’s busy lifestyle.

“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,” Lisa wrote. “And I will give it my best!”

We certainly can’t wait to see Lisa and partner Gleb Savchenko shake it on the dancefloor tonight!
