On RHoBH, Lisa Vanderpump is famously known for carrying her little dog Giggy around with her everywhere she goes. Even when Lisa heads off on vacation to Paris, Giggy is right there with her all the way. So it should come as no surprise to fans that Lisa could not leave her puppy behind when she signed on for the Dancing With the Stars Season 16 cast with pro partner Gleb Savchenko.
As Lisa took the dance floor for the first time on the DWTS 2013 premiere Monday night, she carried the little pom down the stairs and passed Giggy to a man in a tuxedo before she and Gleb started their routine. Honestly, Giggy kind of stole the show from Lisa in their first outing on the show!
According to TMZ, Gleb loves Giggy and may incorporate the tiny dog in more future dance routines if he gets the chance, which should make Lisa happy. "Everything is out of my comfort zone because I've never done any of this before,” Lisa said about being cast on DWTS 16. “But Gleb is wonderful. He has a great sense of humor and we're having a lot of fun," she told TV Guide.
Lisa Vanderpump and Gleb Savchenko did not have the best score of the night, receiving only an 18 out of 30 from the judges. Len Goodman said the dance “was acceptable but it wasn’t exceptional” and there was “too much staggering about.” Bruno Toniolli jokingly blamed Lisa’s bling for messing her up. I think because you have so many rocks around your neck, you couldn't maintain your posture," Tonioli said.
Let’s hope Lisa’s many fans from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules will be more than enough to keep her in the competition on Dancing With the Stars for another week!
