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
Hello and welcome to you all!
As you know Dancing with the Stars season 16 starts Monday and I am part of the new cast. I can safely say that the most enjoyable part of the rehearsal process so far – apart from being wrapped around my gorgeous partner Gleb Savchenko for 10 days – is the camaraderie that is shared between everyone on the new season.
Dorothy Hamill is a darling of a woman, whom I have bonded with; boxer Victor Ortiz is hilarious – and basically everybody has so much support for one another. I have seen tears of frustration, outbursts due to nervousness and squeals of laughter as we marvel at this incredible experience we signed up for.
