D.L. Hughley’s long and miserable ballroom journey continues! Lisa Vanderpump and Gleb Savchenko have been expunged from Planet Mirrorballus on Week 4.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and proud dog owner — they may have mentioned or shown Giggy just that one time — suffered health issues all week. Lisa fainted during Saturday’s practice; then, according to Gleb, she was in the trailer “vermitting” until a few minutes before their hilariously tepid mess of a Chippendales cha cha cha Monday night.

So basically, Lisa was pooped. Enough’s enough, she said! What’s an older lady that rich dancing around all day for anyway? There is other TV to be made. Priorities, dahling.

Awww. I’ll miss Gleb! He is the smoothest Ken doll. Gleb’s plan, for right now, is to get drunk. (Read more from Gleb and Lisa.)

Return of the Maks! Tom mentioned at the end that next week, the couples must dance alongside returning pros in “Len’s Side-By-Side Challenge.” His highness Maksim Chmerkovskiy will dance with Anna Trebunskaya alongside brother Val and Zendaya. Tristan MacManus, Chelsie Hightower, and Tony Dovolani will also return.

Victor Ortiz and Lindsay Arnold joined Lisa and Gleb in the bottom two, and we found out he’d forgotten to remove his boxing gloves and robe mid-dance (ain’t that always the problem in your standard-issue paso doble?) They bickered backstage; it was kind of boring. Not too many behind-the-scenes gems tonight overall, actually. I liked seeing Andy Dick genuinely gush to Sharna, “You made the most beautiful dance ever” — that was so sweet and simply put.


Andy was sweating hard last night, making the tissue-filled Mirrorbomb even more necessary than it obviously already was as a statement piece of decor. Relax, Dick! He and Sharna avoided the official bottom two after Monday night‘s sob-inducing Viennese waltz dedicated to his daughter.

NEXT: More shame, prompted by J. Lo
