The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is a cakewalk compared to Dancing with the Stars.

Lisa Vanderpump almost welcomed her elimination from the ABC dancing competition after suffering from a bad cold.

“I have an element of relief, to be honest, because I have been feeling so crappy,” the 52-year-old Brit told reporters after hearing the news. “It’s been tough, absolutely.” Viewers witnessed the restaurateur, who also runs around on Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules, faint during rehearsal. A doctor told her that her heart rate was too fast and her blood pressure low. Vanderpump is feeling better but too bad we won’t be seeing her gorgeous partner, Gleb Savchenko, anymore.

Day in court

Flavor Flav was due Wednesday to appear before a Vegas judge in a felony case. Flav, 54, is accused of pushing his girlfriend of eight years to the floor Oct. 17 and wielding two knives while allegedly chasing and threatening the woman’s 17-year-old son. He could face prison time on assault and child endangerment charges.

Family affair

Kim Kardashian’s attorneys do not expect to call her famous sisters to testify about the reality star’s brief marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries. But mom Kris Jenner is expected to testify about the pair’s relationship and prenup. Humphries is seeking an annulment of the pair’s 72-day marriage, claiming it was based on fraud. Kardashian wants a judge to enter a divorce judgment instead. The former couple is scheduled to appear in a L.A. court Friday to try to settle the case in advance of a May 6 trial date.

Kim’s beau Kanye West has been deposed in the case. And he has problems of his own. The rapper is being sued by the children of late musician David Pryor, who claim West borrowed from his 1974 song, Bumpin’ Bus Stop, for his 2005 hit Gold Digger.
