Lisa Vanderpump Blogs About the End of Dancing with the Stars Journey

Lisa Vanderpump is a restaurateur, designer, author, philanthropist and star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She's competing on season 16 of Dancing with the Stars with new pro Gleb Savchenko – and blogging about it on PEOPLE.com

My journey on Dancing with the Stars has come to an end and this will be the last week that I blog for you. I am back to work now, and it has been difficult to readjust after six intense weeks of dancing.

I haven't seen my partner Gleb Savchenko purposefully for several days, because I'm mourned the loss of the whole experience and I felt it was essential that I throw myself back into work as a distraction.

Lisa Vanderpump Felt an 'Element of Relief' to Dancing with the Stars End

Originally posted 04/10/2013 09:30AM

There's a good reason Lisa Vanderpump didn't shed a tear after her elimination from Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star – who was partnered with hot new pro Gleb Savchenko – felt "an element of relief" to leaving the competition, she told PEOPLE backstage after her dismissal.

"I have to be honest," she said. "I'm okay with it. That's why I didn't fall apart crying."

In fact, Vanderpump is proud of what she's accomplished. "I did it," she said. "It's the fourth week of the competition. We knew we weren't going to win. We were competing against an Olympian and a 16-year-old dancer. I'm a 52-year-old restaurateur. Give me a break. It is what it is."

Dancing with the Stars Elimination: Was Ailing Lisa Vanderpump Saved?

Originally posted 04/09/2013 10:10PM

Lisa Vanderpump survived her scary fall in Dancing with the Stars rehearsals last week, but can the same be said for Tuesday night's elimination?

Although she was sick and asked by doctors to sit out of rehearsals earlier in the day, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 52, went ahead and completed her cha cha with partner Gleb Savchenko on Monday. But the pair only managed to score 18 points, putting her at the very bottom, tied with Victor Ortiz and his partner, Lindsay Arnold.

Was Vanderpump or Ortiz the star who got sent packing at the end of Tuesday night? Or was someone else eliminated?

Lisa Vanderpump Blogs About Fainting While Rehearsing the Cha Cha

This started off as an incredible week! I loved our waltz from last week's Dancing with the Stars. The whole performance felt very old Hollywood. It was a magical night.

The rest of my week, however, was rather trying because I had to take off to New York for work Tuesday right after the elimination show. That night I took a red eye flight at 11 p.m., arriving in New York at 6 a.m. and heading straight to six hours of rehearsals upon landing.

After rehearsals, I ran back to my hotel for a quick change and headed to the Bravo Upfronts party, which wasn't over until around 11 p.m. Then I had a light dinner and drink, and went to bed.

Backstage after Monday's Dancing with the Stars, Wynonna told PEOPLE that she's been on an especially "emotional ride."

Then came Tuesday's elimination, after the singer ended Monday's prom-themed night in last place with only 15 points for her samba with partner Tony Dovolani.

And though D.L. Hughley and partner Cheryl Burke were only one point ahead with their salsa to James Brown's "Sex Machine," Wynonna and Tony are heading home.

Lisa Vanderpump Doesn't Know If Her Friendship with Kyle Richards Can Be Saved

Here's hoping one of the closest friendships of the Real Housewives franchise isn't done for good.

Following the dramatic interaction between Kyle Richards, 44, and Lisa Vanderpump, 52, during the Beverly Hills cast's recent reunion special, the Dancing with the Stars contestant told reporters on Monday, "I don't know" if the friendship can be saved, adding, "We all know she's changed her parameters. We'll see where we go."

Questions about the relationship were hurled Vanderpump's way following an unexpected appearance by Richards and fellow RHOBH cast members, Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville, in the DWTS audience.

Here we are again ... this time in our third round in the Dancing with the Stars ballroom.

Before the first elimination of the season, my partner Gleb Savchenko and I were around the middle of the leader board but the fan vote was low, which put us in jeopardy. I have a feeling that because The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was airing its final episode and the first part of the reunion at exactly the same hour, we may have lost my fan base.

Lisa Vanderpump's Pro Gleb Savchenko Used His Bare Chest to Lure Her into Rehearsals

Originally posted 03/29/2013 03:30PM

It's only fitting that Lisa Vanderpump drew Gleb Savchenko as her Dancing with the Stars pro: She's a restaurateur, and he's DWTS fresh meat. But the 29-year old newbie already has a slew of tactics to keep himself from being swallowed up by his dance partner.

"I actually took my shirt off on the very first rehearsal to be like, 'Okay girl, we gotta work it! If you want to be in this rehearsal, maybe I can drag you in by taking off my shirt,' " Savchenko tells PEOPLE of working with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star (and PEOPLE.com blogger). "And she was like, 'I like that! Okay, let's go.' "
