Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix has been slaying in the Dancing with the Stars ballroom. Ariana and her DWTS partner, Pasha Pashkov, have landed high on the leaderboard every week. During Whitney Houston Week, they performed a Paso Doble that landed them at the top of the leaderboard. They avoided the dreaded Dance-Off because they topped the leaderboard the previous week.
Ariana Madix is determined to stay in the DWTS competition, despite an injury
“It was a huge relief to not have to do the dance-off. Especially because our Paso doble was so packed,” Ariana explained. “I was like, we’re gonna do the dance-off. We’re gonna put worth of two choreographies into one,” Pasha explained. “Yes, we did two dances in one,” Ariana added. That is a great strategy.
On her Instagram Stories, Ariana posted a video showing bandages on her back below the right side of her ribs. “Week 8 is when you add a back injury on top of the foot injury and hope for the best. Thank GODNEY for Gina the incredible PT on set!” Ariana wrote in the caption. Ariana said that she was “taped to the gods.”
Ariana addressed how her back is feeling now. “I’m good. I took a lot of Ibuprofen. I saw the physical therapist here, Gina. She’s incredible,” the DWTS competitor explained. “Two and a half times or one and a half times today. I saw her yesterday as well. I slept on cardboard last night because my mattress is too soft, so I got a cardboard box.”
She continued, “I laid it in the bed, I put a blanket over it, and I slept on a cardboard box, and I think that helped.”
This dancing duo is keeping their eyes on the Len Goodman Mirrorball Trophy. “I mean it’s all, we’re week to week,” Ariana stated. “We’re moment to moment, just focusing on the here and now.”
Dancing With the Stars airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC and Disney+.
