Lisa Vanderpump Says She Had An “Emotional Affair” With Dancing With The Stars Partner Gleb Savchenko

Lisa Vanderpump is still a very busy bee in the world of reality TV. Despite her exit from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she still manages to stay relevant. She has made some missteps along the way, but overall, it doesn’t seem like she’s missing RHOBH. She even managed to snag a new reality show.

But now Lisa is looking back on her time in another spotlight outside of Bravo. She appeared on Season 16 of Dancing With The Stars and decided to dish about her, erm, experience with her dancing partner.

As reported by All About The Real Housewives, Lisa went on a recent episode of The Bellas Podcast to discuss. And she revealed more than one would think. Sure, Lisa is known for being cheeky but this takes it to the next level. Lisa admits to having an “emotional affair” with her dancing partner, Gleb Savchenko.

Lisa explained, “Gleb was gorgeous. I did become very close to Gleb. I loved him. We had a little bit of an emotional affair in terms of having to connect and hold on to each other because it’s so scary… I adored him.” Well, I was not expecting that. An emotional affair seems to be serious business. But she acknowledged that DWTS can be a lot for someone. She said, “It’s very depleting. It’s hard to keep up, it really is. You’re dancing four or five hours a day… Doing that much exercise, I was underweight, I was tired, I fainted once.” We know. Trust me, we remember that story line.

Lisa continued, “Being married for so long and not really engaging with any kind of physicality apart from your husband, when you’re thrown into Dancing With the Stars and suddenly somebody’s right in your face and you’re wrapping your legs around them… That was the best part.”

She went on to joke, “I’d been married for 32 years by that moment and he would say, ‘Do these backbends,’ and as you would do the backbends, he would hold your groin against his and I was thinking, ‘I haven’t had this much fun since my honeymoon!’”

Lucky for Lisa, husband Ken Todd didn’t seem to take issue. According to Lisa, “[Ken] would be like, ‘I see you. I see what you’re up to.’ He doesn’t put that much importance on me messing about and flirting.” Probably because he, along with everyone else, knows it was all in good fun.

I think Lisa is being a little loose with the term “emotional affair.” And that’s just Lisa – always pushing things into a different realm for publicity. Although you certainly couldn’t blame her for being infatuated with her partner. Who wouldn’t after spending all day hanging around Ken?

Regardless, it’s nice to hear Lisa back in action and sharing about her life in the spotlight, which it doesn’t seem like she plans on leaving anytime soon.
