We almost shed a tear when Lisa Vanderpump was eliminated from Dancing With the Stars Season 16, but the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star seems to have a very zen attitude about her short stint on the reality competition.
Speaking to People backstage after her elimination, Lisa said, “I have to be honest, I’m OK with it. That’s why i didn’t fall apart crying.”
With Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman and 16-year-old Disney star Zendaya among her competitors, Lisa is cutting herself some slack.
“I’m a 52-year-old restaurateur,” she said. “Give me a break. It is what it is.”
Despite her rationale, Lisa Vanderpump is still unclear why she got the boot so early in competition. She said people have speculated to her that fans who were shocked by her fainting spell during rehearsals for the cha cha might have taken her exhaustion as a cue to send her home.
Her quest to nab the Mirror Ball trophy may be over, but Lisa has nothing but kind words for her DWTS partner, Gleb Savchenko.
“He was just amazing,” she gushed. “I don’t know what the other pros were like, but he was just the perfect fit for me.”
Gleb had similarly flattering things to say about Lisa, even admitting that he’s spent more time with the RHoBH star than his own wife lately!
“The whole experience was amazing,” said Gleb. “I’m going to miss the laughs — the jokes she makes. She’s got a great sense of humor. I think we’re friends for life.”
Does that mean there’s a future Vanderpump Rules appearance in the cards for Gleb?
