In a blog post for People
, Lisa started off by explaining how busy her week was. After the previous results show, she flew to New York and continued rehearsals, spending the rest of the evening and night at the Bravo upfronts. Early the next morning, she and her partner Gleb Savchenko appeared on Live with Kelly and Michael
. After more rehearsals, she flew back to Los Angeles.
"By the time Thursday rehearsals rolled around," she went on to say, "let's just say I was exhausted and everything felt off. Gleb and I were rehearsing our cha cha and suddenly I just blacked out. I was in shock when I woke up. I fainted only once before in my life."
The doctor told her she had a viral infection, a fever and swollen glands. "And between trying to fight that and all of the stress on my body from running around, I ended up with low blood pressure and a rapid heart rate, which is why I fainted."
Lisa is still not back to complete health, but she confirmed that she won't be quitting and will continue competing unless she's voted out or her doctor tells her otherwise.Dancing with the Stars
