While Lisa's co-stars Kim and Kyle Richards got to participate in a lesser-known reality show
, and Real Housewives of Atlanta
star NeNe Leakes and Real Housewives of New Jersey
star Teresa Giudice both starred on The Celebrity Apprentice
, Lisa has landed the gig in the mother of the celebrity competition shows.
While Lisa may seem like the conservative British type, it's clear she's got a few moves up her sleeve. And she already knows her way around a stripper pole, so that might come in handy. Not to mention she's a fan of all things pink and girly, so the sparkly leotards shouldn't be a problem.
"Okay sad for Vanderpump Rules
to end, next week is the reunion," Lisa tweeted about her Bravo spin-off
. "As they say... when one door closes another one opens! #DWTS."
Lisa will be paired up with a new-to-DWTS
pro dancer Gleb Savchenko
. Gleb was born in Russia and has been successful in dance competitions all over the world before becoming a pro on DWTS Australia

Some of Lisa's more famous co-stars on the upcoming season include comedians Andy Dick and D.L. Hughley, country singers Kellie Pickler and Wynonna Judd and Olympians Aly Raisman and Dorothy Hamill.
Unfortunately, Giggy the Pom will probably have to watch from the sidelines with her husband, Ken. And it wouldn't be surprising if any of her co-stars, especially her BFF Brandi Glanville, were to pop up in the crowd as well.
