'Dancing With The Stars': Lisa Vanderpump Collapses During Rehearsal, Then Performs (VIDEO)

It was a scary moment in the rehearsal studio when Lisa Vanderpump collapsed suddenly. News broke over the weekend that the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star had collapsed during rehearsals for "Dancing With the Stars." Fans got to see that moment unfold on the latest performance episode of the show.

Vanderpump has been blogging her "DWTS" experience for People magazine, and she wrote about the incident. She explained that she had a viral infection coupled with exhaustion. That led to a rapid heart rate and low blood pressure. Then, lights out.

After the frightening incident, it wasn't clear if Vanderpump would be able to continue with the show. In fact, she waited until 15 minutes prior to showtime to make her final decision. But the show must go on!

Unfortunately, it didn't go as well as Vanderpump probably would have liked. She wound up at the bottom of the leaderboard with a score of 18, tied with Victor Ortiz.

Tune in to see if Lisa Vanderpump survives elimination on "Dancing With the Stars," Mondays at 8 p.m. ET and Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
