The 60-year-old reality star explained that she and the pro dancer became very close to the extent of loving him. Vanderpump further noted that she adored Savchenko and added:

"We had a little bit of an emotional affair in terms of having to connect and hold on to each other because it's so scary…"


The former "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star said that being married for long and not having any kind of intimacy with another person for years made her time on "Dancing with the Stars" more exciting.

Vanderpump, who has been married to restaurateur Ken Todd for nearly four decades, explained that dancing with Savchenko made her feel sexy in a way she had not felt for a long time.

Vanderpump recently served as a cover girl for the Fall 2020/Winter 2021 edition of Caesars Player magazine.


Despite the reality star's very flirtatious rapport with Savchenko, Vanderpump added that her husband did not mind her having a little fun with the professional dancer.

The reality star appeared on season 16 of "Dancing with the Stars" in 2013, where she and Savchenko won the hearts of many with their impressive dance performances.


When Vanderpump is not having fun on the dance floor, the 60-year-old television star makes sure to keep herself ageless and is often seen showing off her striking looks.

Vanderpump recently served as a cover girl for the Fall 2020/Winter 2021 edition of Caesars Player magazine. To say she looked breathtaking would be an understatement.


Donning a gorgeous silk top, Vanderpump held up a glass of cocktail as she proudly showed off her sparkly diamonds. She topped the look with subtle makeup complementing her complexion.

The new cover photo comes a few years after Vanderpump lost her brother Mark to suicide in 2018. Sadly, the reality star also lost her mom Jean in June of the following year.

Despite what has undoubtedly been a rough few years for Vanderpump, the reality star chooses to keep a positive approach, and from all indications, she is thriving through it all.
