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

Originally posted 04/15/2013 10:15AM

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.

Wynonna Fears She Disappointed Tony Dovolani with Early DWTS Dismissal

Originally posted 04/03/2013 09:30AM

Fresh off the heels of his winning Dancing with the Stars's all-star competition, was Wynonna's partner Tony Dovolani upset to be part of the second couple who went home during season 16?

"In any other situation, I'd say yes, but not in this one," the ballroom pro, 39, told PEOPLE backstage on Tuesday, right after the pair had been eliminated. "I'm so grateful to have met someone like Wynonna."

Despite their early dismissal, Dovolani has a season's worth of memories with Wynonna, 48, who got teary-eyed as she made her way through the press line.

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.

Wynonna's Husband Walks for First Time Since Leg Amputation

Michael Scott "Cactus" Moser is up and at 'em again, following the August motorcycle accident that took one of his legs – and nearly his life.

"After eight months of waiting, he walked towards me for the first time two days ago," Moser's wife, Wynonna, 48, told PEOPLE backstage at Dancing with the Stars on Monday, adding that fellow contestant Lisa Vanderpump was one of the first people to walk with him. "It's been an emotional ride for me this week."

Of Moser's prosthetic leg, the country star said, "It freaked me out because I've seen him in a wheelchair and using a walker, and he just walked towards me and I was like, 'Wow.' I was so stunned. I saw the wreck, I saw him lose the leg."

Dancing with the Stars: Who Were King and Queen of the Prom-Themed Episode?

Originally posted 04/01/2013 10:45PM

There can only be one king and queen of any prom – and Dancing's prom-themed show was no exception. So, which couple made magical memories in the ballroom Monday night?

Derek Hough and partner Kellie Pickler reigned once again this week, according to tough judge Len Goodman, who declared the singer "queen" for their "Footloose" jive. Carrie Ann Inaba called the performance "ridiculously amazing." They earned the top score of 25 points.

Hot on their heels were early frontrunners Zendaya and partner Val Chmerkovskiy, who earned 24 points for a Viennese waltz that Bruno Tonioli called as "enchanting and charming as Venice in the moonlight."

NFL star Jacoby Jones was sexy and shirtless for an impressive, 24-point rumba with partner Karina Smirnoff. "This had a refinement," Len said. "It had quality of movement."

Dancing Dispute: Is Age Really Just a Number?

Originally posted 03/26/2013 09:30AM

Is it easier to do well on Dancing with the Stars if you're a teenager with boundless energy?

Not necessarily, says Zendaya, the 16-year-old Disney star who has dazzled so far this season – but who also ruffled some feathers Monday by saying age is "just a number."

"Using age is almost an excuse," Zendaya told PEOPLE after another brilliant performance. "Age doesn't mean anything. Age doesn't mean I can't work as hard. Age doesn't mean I can't do as well as everyone else. It's just a factor. It's just there."

Zendaya was mostly talking about herself, trying to explain why she's doing so well at such a young age. But some of her older competitors had to laugh at the suggestion that age doesn't mean anything.

Country icon Wynonna's size is no laughing matter.

Despite playfully telling Tuesday's Good Morning America audience about signing on to Dancing with the Stars so that she can get down to her birth weight, the singer says her health has actually become a growing concern.

"This is a great diversion for me, because it will focus on self-care, which for women – especially working as hard as I do – we forget to put ourselves on the list," Wynonna, 48, told PEOPLE shortly after it was announced she'd be joining the cast of ABC's hit show. "This will force me to take care of myself."
