Tom Sandoval has a lot to say about this season’s Vanderpump Rules. Between Kristen Doute’s “Apology Tour” in full swing and the group’s fallout over the Hawaii trip, lines of friendship among the VPR cast have been a bit blurred as of late. But Tom maintains that what we see isn’t always the whole truth. This week I got a chance to chat with Tom about his reaction to recent episodes that largely paint girlfriend Ariana Madix and him as grudge-holding-Stassis (well, at least according to Katie Maloney!). Read on to hear about how Tom feels betrayed by Scheana Marie, and how he expected more from the group of people he still considers friends.
So, after these last few episodes, do you have anything you’d like to clear up?
Tom: “It’s been really strange, really weird with the group. It’s been a lot of propaganda, for lack of a better term. This whole thing with Jax [Taylor] and me and this birthday trip, you know, we got together like 3 weeks prior – maybe a month – and talked about who was going to go.”
“Jax even brought it up himself; he was like, ‘Obviously, Kristen’s not going to go. That doesn’t make much sense.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, that would be really weird.’ It was so nonchalant. Just an obvious answer.”
Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta’s fiery pair Joseline Hernandezand Stevie J. are at it yet again. Stevie J. has aired his dirty laundry so to speak for all to see but bleach is actually the culprit. And at whose hands? The award-winning music dynamo videoed an extensive array of clothing, shoes and other belongings that had been damaged by bleach. It seems Stevie J. is pointing the finger of blame at his ‘wife’ Joseline whose perhaps out-of-control jealousy made her go bonkers with a bleach container. Joseline however is denying, she had anything to do with the damages because she “loves” her ‘husband.’
Stevie J. told the celeb news outlet, he had been working diligently in the studio with R&B songstress Faith Evans and alluded to the fact that Joseline might have been jealous. When the former Bad Boys Records “hitman” arrived home, he was thrown for a loop when he discovered, his clothing and furnishings had been trashed and bleached and the suspect who immediately came to mind was Joseline. Among those ruined items: a vintage $10,000 Bad Boy jacket that was gifted to him by mega music mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, $40,000 worth of clothing, $15,000 worth of Versace china and thousands of dollars worth of sneakers/shoes. In addition, Stevie J. claims his estranged missus also destroyed several of his children’s Christmas gifts.
Is it really tacky to give your loved one a helluva send-off before they’re placed in locked-down? Well apparently Yandy Smith, one of Love & Hip-Hop: New York’s stars, didn’t think throwing a ‘Going Away Celebration’ for her husband of one year and father of her two children, Mendeecees Harriswas such a terrible thing to do but some folks on Twitter disagree. According to Bossip, when news of Yandy’s club affair that is being held tonight in Dallas, Texas was leaked out and hit the internet, Twitterverse ‘turnt up! ‘
According to Bossip, the commentswere hardly complimentary nor empathetic about a move, many considered to be outright brash and shameless, for a man who broke the law:
Noting they looked at Houston, Baltimore, and Philly before finally settling on Potomac, True Entertainment co-founder Steven Weinstock says, “So Bravo came to me and said, ‘Is there another African American cast out there that isn’t derivative, that doesn’t have the same feel?’ And we were able to find this incredible group of women in Potomac, Maryland, of all places. I would liken it to the feeling of ‘Falcon Crest.’ They’re very upwardly mobile, they’re the daughters of very old-monied families. The social grace, etiquette, class, these sorts of things are important in the context of their everyday interactions. It has a very different feel than ‘Atlanta,’ and at the same time it’s dripping with great drama and really exciting and interesting characters.”
Kris has built up quite a perceived solid rep as a momager, the family-go-to person and surveyor of all things Kardashian-related. She is looked upon as keeping the family business running like a well-oiled machine. Surprisingly though, Kim however, blew Kris’ cover to proclaim, she is the real boss chick in charge who tells everyone in the large clan what moves to make business-wise states the celeb magazine. “It’s so funny, because I’ll hear stories like, ‘Kris Jenner is the puppet master, having all of her kids do this and that,’ and I’m like, If they only knew. I’m the one that will be like, ‘Kylie, do this.Kendall, you should do this.'”

R&B semi-bad boy Ray J, who also stars on the VH1 hit reality series, “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood,” got engaged to co-star and longtime lady love, Princess Love. The pair seemingly had a kind of dress rehearsal engagement on the final episode of the show. In actuality however, Ray reportedly popped the question again and with more flair on Boxing Day last month, while down on one knee and in front of a private jet before they were scheduled to take off.
The romantic engagement was completely planned by Ray J, who wanted to orchestrate a memorable and romantic event Princess would never forget. The crooner called his girl’s closest friends, as well as her parents to meet him at a heliport the day after Christmas. When the group arrived on the scene, Ray J asked them to hide on the jet, then surprise Princess once the romantic deed was over. According to the news outlet, Princess claims, she cried like a baby when Ray J presented her with a huge riveting yellow teardrop cut diamond framed by two rows of smaller ones.
