"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" alum Lisa Vanderpump is proving that age is nothing but a number.

The 52-year-old Vanderpump defied her age in a skin-tight leotard and tights when leaving "Dancing with the Stars" rehearsals in California on Thursday. The reality star looked pretty good for her age in the black leotard with lace detailing and a neon-pink bra underneath.

She joined the Season 16 roster of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" in February along with singer Wynonna Judd, former "American Idol" contestant Kellie Pickler, Olympian Aly Raisman and comedian Andy Dick.

How does she keep in shape? Vanderpump admits she has some beauty secrets, but dieting is not one of them.

"The hardest thing when you get older –- and I'm 52 –- is keeping your weight down," she told StyleGoesStrong in December. "I'm passionate about my restaurants and I'm passionate about eating. I'm not one of those women who says, 'I'll have a carrot or the veggie plate.' I really do eat. I sample my own food."

Practicing nonstop for "Dancing with the Stars" has certainly been making Vanderpump, who is paired with newbie-pro Gleb Savchenko, work.

Although she looks good, Vanderpump claims her dancing is lackluster.

"Everything is out of my comfort zone because I've never done any of this before," she told TV Guide. "The steps, the counting, the posture, the choreography — and doing them all at the same time! I'm hoping I'll be more used to it as the show goes on if we don't get eliminated."

The millionaire restauranteur has been making other small-screen appearances recently.

She just filmed the "RHOBH" Season 3 reunion episode, which she described as "very hard" due to ongoing drama with fellow castmates, such as Kyle Richards. She also wrapped up Season 1 of "Vanderpump Rules," which is about life at her West Hollywood eatery, Sur.

"Dancing with the Stars" premieres Monday, March 18 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
