Dancing with the Stars: Gettin' Giggy with It!
While Lisa Vanderpump may not be having the easiest time adjusting to her Dancing with the Stars schedule, her Pomeranian certainly is. “Giggy is in his element,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star tells PEOPLE of her pup, who receives his own tailored ensembles, like this mini tux from the competition’s first week, for each episode.
ALL THAT GLITTERS
“He can’t get enough sparkles and frills,” Vanderpump says, as her husband Ken shows off the dog’s dazzling week-two attire. The embroidery spells out his full name, Gigolo.
For the third week, the pint-size pooch dresses up his lavender coat with some major bling. “Giggy will wear whatever the wardrobe department makes him,” says Vanderpump, “as long as it matches my outfit and has plenty of diamonds on it!”
IN THE PINK
But while his wardrobe certainly adds to Giggy’s adorability, it is, in fact, a necessity. “He’s got chronic alopecia, so that’s why he wears clothes,” explains Vanderpump, who noted that this hot pink getup from the show’s promotional shoot was one of his favorites.
Caring for Giggy comes with some baggage – the good kind! The Pomeranian requires his own suitcase to store his many ensembles.
“He is now totally obsessed with the wardrobe department,” says Vanderpump, who’s partnered with pro Gleb Savchenko. And it seems the feeling is mutual among the show’s cast and crew – here, pro dancer Tony Dovolani steals a snuggle.
Pampering sure does tire a pup out, eh Giggy? “He’s got a great little character,” Vanderpump says.
