Lisa Vanderpump's Unlikely 'DWTS' Cheering Squad—Who Was Missing?When* Lisa Vanderpump* and dance partner *Gleb Savchenko* took their turn around the Dancing with the Stars ballroom with their elegant Venetian Waltz, who was standing off of the dancefloor was almost as interesting as what was happening on it.

On the sidelines stood Lisa's hubby *Ken* and pal *Brandi Glanville*, naturally, but right beside them were *Taylor Armstrong*, *Kim Richards* and, drumroll please, even *Kyle Richards*, whose friendship with Lisa seemed in peril during the Housewives reunion. Could this mean the former buddies are making up?

"Well, I don’t know," said Lisa from backstage of the show. "We all know she (Kyle) changed the parameters so we’ll see as we go forward. I know the viewers and fans have been honest in their support and I think there’s probably something to go forward."

Lisa explained she and Kyle have texted, but not actually spoken verbally since the reunion filmed.

"It’s a journey," she explains. "You’ve seen us for 85 episodes. That’s what these shows...they want you to be honest with your feelings. I’ve always been known as an honest Housewife so I’m not going to compromise my integrity going forward and I’m going to tell them with as much kindness as I can but being as direct as I need to be sometimes. That’s what this show is. So we’ll see. But I’m happy they’re here to support me and I’m in a good place with Kim, absolutely with Brandi, and Taylor. Kyle and I have had our moments."

Noticeably absent was castmate *Yolanda Foster*, but with good reason.

"She came on to the show as a friend of mine so I have a history with her," says Lisa. "In fact her ex-husband Mohammed is here tonight to support me. I just think she’s an incredible woman and I know she’s having a tough time dealing with Lyme disease, otherwise she would be here. It’s been difficult for her but she’s here in spirit and she supports me whole-heartedly."

Lisa is developing a new group of friends through her Dancing with the Stars experience, including country icon *Wynonna Judd*, who she has become especially close with.

"I’ve made lifelong friends, that’s been one of the most important things," she says. "Even if I left tomorrow, we don’t know because last week we (Gleb and Lisa) were in the bottom two. We are so supportive of each other."

While reporters joked that Lisa should bring her new friendin to fill the spot left by a certain dismissed Housewife, Wynonna admitted she's never seen an episode of the show, but she's open to anything!

"Listen, after doing this show (Dancing with the Stars), I can do anything. I’m serious. I love Lisa because here’s what we talk about when we’re up there in the skybox, we talk about how we’re representing the people who are our fans. We’re not 20, we’re not 30, we’re older and we can still have attitude. It’s not about age, it’s about attitude and we’re out there and we are doing it. We’re out there doing what a lot of women go, 'You know what, if they can do it, I can do it.' And that’s what I keep saying to you, people don’t understand how hard it is. Lisa shows up for four hours a day (to rehearse)."

Lisa adds, "It’s just about being the best you can be. It’s not even about competing against the other contestants. If I go home tomorrow, I have made lifelong friends. And that, to me, has been more important than anything. We’re people from all walks of life all supporting each other that means more to me to be honest."

See if Lisa makes it through tonight's elimination when Dancing with the Stars airs at 9 PM/8 Central on ABC.
