It looks like the next season of Vanderpump Rules is going to be a difficult one for Scheana Marie. It seems like everyone in the cast is getting along and she’s the odd one out. Even Lala Kent has won over all of the women on the show after seasons of feuding, shading, and teasing.
It’s almost like Vanderpump Rules is a sociological experiment on modern love, right? Every other day there are new cheaters to eclipse the previous cheaters with crazier cheating scandals and bigger liars, all compounded by the ever-shifting relationships around accommodating these facts. Can’t anyone get in the right pants? Or keep their members in the right pants, rather?
Take for instance the evolution of Jax Taylor and James Kennedy. They’ve both ‘interacted’ with the same women (Kristen Doute and Lala Kent), which created a palpable neanderthal assholian hatred towards each other – like crabs in a bucket – as they battled over being too similar, but now they’re bonding over how much they cannot stand Kristen. Which is hilarious considering neither one of them ever seemed to like Kristen to begin with! And now, of course, Kristen is trying to destroy Jax’s relationship with Brittany Cartwright. Not because Kristen likes Jax (or has any lingering feelings for him), but because she loves Brittany (and once hooked up with her) too much to let her be ruined by Jax.
Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix, the couple that never fights (on camera, at least), ended up engaging in a screaming match on camera after Ariana showed Brittany the audio that Faith recorded during her hookup with Jax. Tom couldn’t believe that she did this at Brittany’s housewarming party when she (and everyone else) was wasted and Ariana avidly defended her decision.
I cannot get enough of Bravo. I wish that there was some sort of spin-off hybrid series about the Bravolebrities in between seasons. I would love to see people from different shows mingling, turning up after Watch What Happens Live, and whatever else happens before and after they post photos together on Instagram.
Since Summer House is technically a Vanderpump Rules spin-off and the two casts hang out pretty often, it’s not too hard to imagine that a hookup went down with cast members from both shows.
It is so difficult keeping track of the friendships on Vanderpump Rules. No matter what happens or what they say about each other, you never know where these people stand with each other on any given day. These cast members have to be the most forgiving people on the planet.
Kristen Doute never got along with Ariana Madix or Lala Kent in the past, but now she’s cool with both of them. Ariana started dating Kristen’s ex boyfriend and Kristen invited a girl that he allegedly hooked up with all the way from Miami to show up at SUR in Los Angeles and now these two are getting along after years of shading each other. Kristen and Lala never had a chance at friendship thanks to everyone else’s drama. Now, Kristen is on good terms with them and she opened up about that in a recent interview.
Let’s hope that Luann de Lessepsdidn’t log into Instagram after she checked out of rehab earlier this week. She might feel a little bit slighted by her Real Housewives of New York costars. They did some sort of jail-themed workout class, complete with mock mugshots. Shade much? Or is it a merely a coincidence? I’m going to assume that it’s the former and just hope that this ends up contributing to a story line next season.
Aside from those glorious faux mugshots, there were some other great reality star photos for this week’s Instagram roundup.
It is tough for any outsider to understand the relationship dynamics within the Vanderpump Rules cast. They’re always fighting, breaking up, making up, and hanging out with their exes (and their significant others’ exes) on a regular basis. This show started out as the Jax Taylor and Stassi Schroeder show. That felt like a whole lifetime ago since so much has happened since then and Jax is dating Brittany Cartwright (who is friends with Stassi now).
Jax, Stassi, Brittany, (Jax’s previous hookup) Kristen Doute, and another one of Jax’s exes Rachael O’Brien all got together in Jax’s home state of Michigan to honor Jax’s father who recently passed away.
