Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules star Lisa Vanderpump will make her Dancing With the Stars debut tonight during the Season 16 premiere. We already know she can rock some spandex and heels like nobody’s business. But is she ready to cut a rug on live television with her hunky partner, DWTS newcomer Gleb Savchenko?
In a blog for People, Lisa admitted that training for the competition has been challenging, with practices lasting between four to seven hours a day. While the busy Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was hoping to balance her duties as a restaurateur with her new gig, she’s found the juggling act more difficult than she imagined.
“I assumed that I would fit the dancing into my busy schedule but not so — it really all just takes over your life,” Lisa wrote. “I have a new found respect for the professional dancers as I struggle to reach just a minuscule amount of the perfection they achieve!”
While DWTS is a competition, that doesn’t mean Lisa can’t make a few new friends! So who has she become closest with so far?
“Dorothy Hamill is a darling of a woman, whom I have bonded with,” Lisa Vanderpump wrote. “Boxer Victor Ortiz is hilarious — and basically everybody has so much support for one another.”
It sounds like her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars could learn a lot from the teamwork exhibited on Dancing With the Stars.
