Dancing with the Stars Week 4 Results: Lisa Vanderpump “Relieved” By Elimination

Lisa Vanderpump sees her elimination in week 4 of Dancing with the Stars as a relief, not a disappointment. In fact, Vanderpump says she never expected to win the competition.

“It’s been six long weeks! I’ve got two shows, I’ve got two businesses and a business under construction. I have a lot going on!” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and restaurant owner said after the results show.”We knew we weren’t going to win . . . I’m a 52-year-old restauranteur, give me a break!”

The elimination came after a rough week for Vanderpump. She was sick with a cold and fainted during rehearsals. Vanderpump says she didn’t want her illness to stop her from performing her cha cha with partner Gleb Savchenko. “I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t do it,” she said. “I knew I wasn’t well rehearsed, but I wanted to give it my best try.”

“I have an element of relief, to be honest, because I have been feeling so crappy,” she added. “I feel better today. It’s been an incredible experience, and you can’t minimize it, but wow, it’s been tough, absolutely.”

Savchenko said he has found a lifelong friend in Vanderpump. . “The whole experience was amazing,” he said. “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. Seven weeks together, every single day. I’ve spent a lot more time with her [lately] than with my wife.”

The remaining competitors are: Sean Lowe, Kellie Pickler, Jacoby Jones, Victor Ortiz, Aly Raisman, Andy Dick, D.L. Hughley, Zendaya and Ingo Rademacher.


Dancing With The Stars Results: Wynonna Judd Becomes First Star Eliminated

Season 16 Dancing with the Stars contestants were saved from facing the first elimination last week because Dorothy Hamill voluntarily bowed out due to a spinal injury. That meant the first elimination by fan votes would be done this week following the stars’ prom-themed routines. On Tuesday night, Wynonna Judd and Andy Dick landed in the bottom two. It was Judd and her partner Tony Dovolani who got the boot, leaving Dick and Sharna Burgess to dance another week.

“It’s a bittersweet thing. I have so much to be grateful for,” the country singer told Us Weekly after her elimination. “I don’t want to go home, but I know that it’s time for me to be doing something else. I’ve been doing this for thirty years and I know that ‘no’ today means a better ‘yes’ tomorrow. I don’t know what that is yet, but I’ll show up!”

Judd admitted that her only regret was letting down Dovolani, who won the all-star season with Melissa Rycroft last year. “I wanted to continue to be the best student for Tony’s sake,” she said. “I almost feel worse for him than I do for myself, that’s just the way I feel.”

“You shouldn’t feel that way!” Dovolani argued. “She never quit, she showed up every day with a bright smile on her face and a shake for me! So that’s the part that I can’t thank you enough for. I’ve had many different partners, but no one has a heart like Wynonna. I admire this woman so much.”

In addition to Dick, the remaining contestants include Sean Lowe, Lisa Vanderpump, Kellie Pickler, Victor Ortiz, Jacoby Jones, D.L. Hughley, Zendaya, Aly Raisman and Ingo Rademacher.
