Vanderpump got the boot thanks to a combination of low judges' scores and viewer votes after she performed while battling a viral infection.
Asked if she was happy she went on the show, Vanderpump replied: "Just to be included with this group of people -- gold medalists, Olympians, but, most importantly, just a wonderful bunch of people. Yes, I am really happy. It's been six long weeks, I have to say. Boy, has it taken its toll. It's the hardest thing I've ever done. But I was given a gift, dancing with [my professional dance partner Gleb [Savchenko.] He was so patient. I just really want to thank my cast-mates because they have been amazing and made it so much fun, so, thank you."
