The fact that Montauk residents are against Summer House is not at all surprising. I know the Bravo reality TV show has not even aired yet, but there were reports that people were annoyed when it was filming, so it was inevitable that they were going to be upset when the previews started to surface.
Obviously, there is going to be even more protest once Summer House episodes start airing on Bravo. The same thing happened with Jersey Shore and pretty much any reality show with a location that’s integral to its story lines and marketing. The irony is that all of the protests against these reality shows bring them even more attention and possibly increase viewers.
Last night’s Vanderpump Rules celebrated Pride, but it was far from the jubilant affair it usually is in light of the Orlando nightclub shooting, which happened the day before.
I’m not sure how to write this recap for a couple reasons: 1) there was a lot of the usual f-ked up SUR drama surrounding Pride and the tragic events; and 2) Tom Sandoval made his ugly cry face but it seems wrong to make fun of it because he was crying about the Orlando tragedy. Conundrum. I also feel bad swooning over how glorious Peter looked. (Cause he did).
“It was a disaster. It was a beautiful mess. That’s how I describe this season, a beautiful disaster,” Tom warns. “It’s a blur in retrospect, but a lot happens.” Jax Tayloragrees, adding, “There’s some crazy stuff that happens.”
Kristen Doute has had more than her fair share of haters throughout her time on Vanderpump Rules, but I cannot help loving every scene she appears in. Kristen was made for reality TV – she is beyond sure of herself in every aspect, she says random shit without any sign of prior thought, and she has no shame when it comes to the mistakes she makes in front of the cameras. Kristen even managed to stay on a show about waitresses at a restaurant even though she got fired from said restaurant.
For the most part, I very rarely agree with anything she says, but I cannot help laughing. This chick is unintentionally hilarious and it seems like she has no boundaries when it comes to conversation topics. In a recent interview, Kristen defended slut-shaming Lala Kent (yeah not a good look for her), talked about Stassi Schroeder’s diet of Adderall and Diet Dr. Pepper (not the best anecdote to share considering their recently renewed friendship), and bragged about being a social media stalking expert (a claim I 100% believe).
Is there anything more confusing than a woman who is not only willing to have sex with James Kennedy, but do the sex in essentially a cot in the corner of his dorm room? Oh yes, there IS something more confusing – that this woman is willing to admit this sex on national television! The bright lights of LVP‘s sparkles reflected by Bravo cameras can cause a girl to lose her mind!
Were they shocked about Scheana and Shay’s split? Tom says it came out of nowhere and Katie says “Of course. We all thought they would be together forever.” Tom adds, “you never know what’s going on behind closed doors. They seemed happy from outward appearances.”
I feel naive saying this, but I was surprised when I heard about Scheana Marie Shay and Mike Shay filing for divorce. Yes, I remember the couple dealing with Shay’s addiction last season on Vanderpump Rules, but I figured they would try to work through it – at least for a little bit longer than this.
There have been quite a few rumors about the Shays recently. It was reported that Shay ran away and took Scheana’s money, but Shay adamantly denied that story and proclaimed his love for his wife in a strongly worded Instagram post. It seemed like it was all good, but clearly that was not the case. Now I’m wondering what we will get to see on the current Vanderpump Rules season.
