"I think I made the choice to kind of give it up before it gave me up," she said. "It was fun. I don't think that will be on my epitaph."
Vanderpump said the meaningful moments in her life have been raising her daughter Pandora and her son Max. She said she does not give her children handouts and strongly believes they need to learn how to make their own money. Both Pandora and Max wait tables at her restaurant.
"They have to work, and then they will be rewarded," Vanderpump said. "I think if you spoil them, it's simple -- they end up spoiled."
She seems like she has it all figured out. When it comes to dancing in front of millions of people, Vanderpump believes there is no way she can lose.
"I have no idea whether I'll just forget the routine, freeze, fall on my ass," she said. "But, you know what? If it all goes horribly wrong, which it possibly might, I'm a great businesswoman. I've been a great wife, good mother and a lousy dancer."
