Every season of Dancing with the Stars inevitably has its share of injuries and walking wounded. This week we are hearing that Lisa Vanderpump has had a bit of a medical crisis to contend with. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has been pulling double duty, training for her spin across the ballroom each week and also honoring her Bravo commitments as well. Lisa had a whirlwind 48 hours during which she flew cross country twice, Appeared at the Bravo Upfront party and then waltzed on Live with Kelly and Michael before several more hours of rehearsal. Eventually, Lisa’s body collapsed and she blacked out. According to her personal blog,
“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. 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. And I will give it my best! “
Aside from her television commitments Lisa also runs two of LA’s top restaurants and she’s also a designer. Do you think that perhaps there’s just a little too much on her current plate? Gleb Savchenko is her professional partner on DWTS. He is also knew to the cast so they are really finding their way through the grind of the show each week together.
