Tom Sandoval has been slogging through the thick soup of drama on Vanderpump Rules since the very beginning, and he has come back to stir up more of it for season five! Tom shares that he and girlfriend Ariana Madix are feeling stronger than ever, though they’re still not ready to tie the knot. He also says viewers will be seeing a “new” Stassi Schroeder this season, as she tries her hand at adulting on camera.
Reflecting on how things shook out last season, Tom says he and Ariana tried to stay away from Kristen Doute above the fray as much as possible. “I really felt like we were in a good place as far as the rest of the group is concerned. We could kind of be as involved as we wanted to be, and no one could give us any shit about it; especially after last year.”
I had no idea what to expect from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills spin-off show Vanderpump Rules, but I was addicted right from the beginning. The show has the most ridiculous cast and there is never a shortage of drama. Rumor has it that there’s so much drama among the cast that it is rumored that Jax Taylor and girlfriend Brittany Cartwright have a spin-off show in the works.
Shockingly, they seem to be a pretty harmonious couple, but I feel like a Jax focused show will be entertaining to watch. Jax was meant to be on reality TV. These rumors have been going around for a while and I didn’t know what to believe, but it seems like the gossip could be true.
Lisa Vanderpump is one of a handful of Bravo Housewives who has staying power in this sometimes precarious industry. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules star recently shared her feelings on what it means to be a reality ‘star,’ including how she initially got into the world of warring Housewives, and how she has navigated its rocky waters since.
Part of Lisa’s appeal is her depth. Lisa is not merely a “housewife” who cameras follow around for dramatic purposes; she’s also a long time business woman, brand builder, and activist for animal rights and the LGBT community. The restaurateur and humanitarian seems to understand something that many of the other Bravo Housewives (96 in total since the franchise’s inception ten years ago) often do not: Audiences stick with the person, not the persona.
The biggest story line of whether or not Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney will say ‘I Do’ has already been busted thanks to social media (Yes, they tie the knot, aka Tom’s balls are tied in a knot forever), but apparently there was a lot of back and forth leading up to the altar. No surprise there, as Tom‘s fear of commitment has always been an issue.
It’s clear Scheana Marie Shay puts a lot of effort into taking care of herself and that she has pride in her appearance. She really does try hard to stay fit and be nutritious. That’s why it was extremely disheartening when Instagram followers skinny shamed the Vanderpump Rules star after she posted about using Hydroxycut to help her reach her body goals.
After that rude fiasco, Scheana decided to disable the comment option on her latest post related to the weight loss supplement.
While we were home Sunday night filing our nails and taking out the garbage like regular people, Lisa Vanderpump and daughter Pandora Vanderpump Sabo were rubbing elbows with Hollywood elite at the Emmy Awards. You know, just another day in the life of Bravo royalty!
On the red carpet, Lisa took the time to dish on her two Bravo shows poised to premiere in the next few weeks: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules. Of VPR, Lisa shares that it will be a “tumultuous ride” as the cast marches its way toward the wedding between Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz. But, Lisa admits, the cast still love each other despite their endless bad choices and backstabbing ways!
