Lisa Vanderpump Is ‘Dancing With The Stars’
Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” castmember will compete on the ABC competition.
With less than a day before ABC announces Season 16’s official competitors, Celebuzz has learned that Dancing With the Stars is embarking on a first.
According to our sources, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules star Lisa Vanderpump is exchanging her Louboutins for dancing kicks.
Reportedly, DWTS didn’t intend to cast any Housewives stars -- ever. Vanderpump will be its first from the hit Bravo franchise. Her casting on the show is a testament to not only the Bravo franchise’s popularity, but Vanderpump’s growing influence, as well. Not only does she star on her own Real Housewives spinoff, but Vanderpump co-owns two popular restaurants in West Hollywood: Sur and Villa Blanca.
TMZ reports that Andy Dick, Wynonna Judd, Kellie Pickler, Aly Raisman, Jacoby Jones, Sean Lowe and Victor Ortiz have also signed on.
