Actual cause for concern, or blatant plea for sympathy votes? (Guess which one I think it is)'Dancing With the Stars' scoop: Lisa Vanderpump faints during rehearsal, future on show unclear

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and Dancing With the Stars competitor Lisa Vanderpump fainted at a rehearsal this week for DWTS, a source close to the show tells EW. It is unclear yet whether she will return to the competition.
Vanderpump, 52, is paired with newcomer pro Gleb Savchenko on season 16 of DWTS. Last week, the pair avoided landing in the bottom two of the competition, but a lackluster performance meant they were still in jeopardy.

Hmm...I think the fainting is real, but Lisa can't control how the show presents it. I think if the show gives us the dramatic footage and the requisite ambulance scene it could go either way for her. If she's well by show time then the audience might not even consider the fainting spell into their vote. Or, it could be the angle the show wants to get rid of DL once and for all. The treatment of DL by the judges has been particularly controversial and if the sympathy votes for Lisa and the'"boost" vote Andy gets this week because he was real bottom two last week, could make DL the most vulnerable target. I guess it will depend on how everyone dances, since Victor could also be in danger.
Well they are showing a short promo for Monday that includes the fainting.
