'DWTS' Results Recap: Lisa Vanderpump Should Be Livid

Lisa VanderpumpDancing With the Stars is notorious for surprise endings, and it seems this season is no different. One thing that is always fun about the show is a person can suck one week and be amazing the next and that can make all the difference.

The person who went home this week was a surprise, indeed (SPOILERS after the jump), but it was the people who stayed who surprised me most of all. D.L. Hughley lives to dance another week? Really? Sean Lowe also lasted another week, as did Andy Dick.

I don't care how sweet his dance for his daughter was, I wasn't moved to tears (Carrie Ann, seriously?), and it more creeped me out than anything. He is just a little too earnest for my taste. There were many, many choices for who could go home tonight, so the person who DID go home felt a little unfair.

Tonight's big loser was Lisa Vanderpump. Sure, she wasn't the best dancer. She was probably headed home as one of the first ones, but she should have outlasted Sean Lowe. And D.L. Hughley. And Andy Dick.

She did, after all, battle an illness and time in the hospital to be on last night's show. It seems awfully unfair that she would go home given all she fought to even be there in the first place.

She was the first of the Real Housewives to ever be on the show, and I hope they will make more space for them in the future. I realize Bravo isn't ABC and that The Bachelor shares the DWTS network, but come ON. Who wants to see another Bachelor contestant make an ass out of himself? Jake Pavelka was bad enough.

Sure, Melissa Rycroft was amazing (and even won the all-stars), but the rest have been duds. As a long time fan of The Bachelor and only a recent one of Housewives, I say bring on more Housewives and far LESS silly Bachelor contestants.

So long Lisa. I am sure she will find millions of ways to soothe her hurt feelings between Jiggy and Ken and her mansions, but I also am sad to see her go.

Onward! Next week, can we please send someone home who deserves it?

Did you think Lisa deserved to go?

yes she was the right one to go home and bring on more of the bachelor they do good and fine so there bring more of the bachelor on more often....

Betty Aldrich

    Either  Hugley  or  Dick should have gone before Lisa. poor choices and yes come on Carrie, In tears about Dick's dancing. really.?? NO.

Susan Douglass

I think her health was being hurt, so I think she was the one in need of going home to regain what was leaving.

what most people don't understand is that this is not a "regulated" competition.  It is a scripted entertainment show.  The show can create/select whomever they want.  The voting and scores are simply provided to add the appearance of drama. One way to ensure ratings is to continue to have someone that the fans "can't beleive is still on the show".  Much like the Stir continueing to allow Kate Gosselin to post her innane crap on this site.

that Bachelor sucked so bad, Hughly cant even move his feet. Lisa was classy and elegant and considering how sick she was she did a great job. I stopped watching when carri kept finding fault with Giles and never gave him a 10...he was by far the best dancer in the all stars, she kept him from getting perfect scores. I did see andy and lisas dances online and hughly when I flipped through......its a fixed show and im done with it

Im a big fan of Lisa Vanderpump. Im sad to see her go, but she needed to take care of herself. Im glad she lastef this long. You go Lisa, youll be fine. Now get rid of DL Hugly....

Lasted this long? She was there only four weeks. hopefully the next HW on this show will show more commitment and will have better dancing skills to go much further in the competition.

Hell yeah she needed to go home. It is all about the dancing, not that you wish you were her bff. btw-if you think Andy dick was "creepy", it says more about you than him.
