Fainting scare the talk of 'DWTS'

Monday night's "Dancing with the Stars" was supposed to be all about the celebrities performing a routine based on the best years of their lives.

But much of the focus was on whether one of the stars would even dance at all.

Reality TV personality Lisa Vanderpump fainted and briefly blacked out during rehearsals last week.  The health scare, along with her opting not to participate in a final rehearsal on Monday, sparked concern that the "Real Housewife" would pull out of the competition.

But near the end of the show, Vanderpump and pro partner Gleb Savchenko managed to perform a cha-cha to the delight of the crowd. And even though her dance earned her an 18 from the judges, putting her at the bottom with boxer Victor Ortiz, the fact that she performed at all was an accomplishment.

Watch the above video to hear what other celebrities had to say about Vanderpump's dance. Plus, you'll find out who D.L. Hughley is on good terms with this week.

Who do you think will be eliminated tonight?

    That was so fake. She totally protected herself when she fell. If she really fainted her head would have really cracked the floor. Completely staged. Andy is totally over the top and ridiculous. I can't continue to watch the show.

    I love "Dancing With The Stars" and I don't want it to ever be canceled! And I do not watch "The Walking Dead" and I have no plans too. It looks just so dumb to me!

    • Peace ✌

      I'm just the opposite of you, I don't watch DWTS & I do watch WD. I hope neither 1 gets cancelled. I have a friend who loves DWTS & I want it to stay on for her. Of course, there's a gazillion of us who watch WD, so they better not cancel that, either. Good day to ya!

    Does anyone here watch The Walking Dead? What do you think they are going to do with all the old people they took in? I'm kind of old. I wouldn't want to be in Rick's group living inside a prison. I'd rather be in a mall like on Dawn if the Dead. You could take naps and eat lots of mall food. And if there was electricity you could watch DVDs all day long.
