It’s safe to say that Monday’s episode was deliciously predictable, with Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute crashing Villa Rosa to attend Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s engagement party. Jax’s girlfriend Brittany Cartwright proved once again that she has more patience than the entire cast combined (times a million), and Scheana Shay and Adriana Madix are once again biffles…even if their reconciliation was a product of Scheana’s insecurities about being ousted by Stassi. All is right with the world.
When I found out that the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion was going to be stretched out over three episodes, I was like, Seriously? Nothing happened! But I honestly didn’t have that reaction when I read the “drama-filled three part reunion” press release for Vanderpump Rules. This season, which is on track to be the highest rated season, did not disappoint this hopelessly addicted fan.
About the ratings, Bravoshared, “On track to deliver its highest rated season ever among all demos, Vanderpump Rules season four is averaging 1.5 million P25-54, 1.4 million P18-49, and 2.2 million total viewers, up 17 percent, 8 percent and 13 percent respectively versus last season.” Look below for the schedule, as well as a sneak peek, for the Vanderpump Rules reunion.
Lala admits that she was “heavily intoxicated” at Tom and Katie‘s engagement party. About interrupting Kristen Doute‘s speech, she shares, “I have massive anxiety when people repeat themselves. I was ready to have her wrap it up.”
Scheana, who is insufferable this entire segment, says to Lala, “It was so rude and so disrespectful whether we were all thinking it or not. It wasn’t your day. It was not. It had nothing to do with you. You were barely invited.”
Tom says he wasn’t ruffled by Kristen and Stassi’s entrance, though! He says the event “was a nice healthy mix of excitement, joy, and anticipation heading into the engagement party. I was being cheap at first but eventually loosened the purse strings.”
Pre-party Lala, who knows everyone hates her, is having massive anxiety about what to wear and how to act. Especially because James Kennedy, the littlest weasel at SUR, informed Lala that Kristen called her a “ratchet whorebag.” Hilariously Lala turns to Scheana Marie for advice on how not to look like a “whorebag” – Lala is OK with the ratchet part. Scheana, hilariously, advises her to dress as if she’s meeting someone’s mother – which means keep it classy. Scheana isn’t too devoted to Lala’s concerns however, because OF COURSE she has her own issues to worry about, like why Ariana Madix is keeping her distance!
Lisa admits she invitedJames Kennedy to her house for dinner Sunday night, “I wanted to check in with him. He’s been through an incredibly difficult journey. Although the show’s a very accurate portrayal of what they do and what they’re up to, I don’t think we really ever have had the full picture of James. There is a lot more of a sensitive side to him. You see a lot of his bravado and his attitude. I wanted to check in with him. He has been undergoing some intense therapy,” jokingly adding, “He probably needs electric-shock treatments.”
Lisa Vanderpump caves and allows Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz to throw their engagement party at Villa Rosa. Despite her wishes to keep Kristen and Stassi off of her property, they show up anyway. And Kristen annoys everyone (except Katie) with a long, rambling speech that is awkward and mostly about her taking credit for the coupling. Lala basically blurts out what everyone is thinking – STFU!
Lisa first discusses her reaction to Katie Maloney requesting to use her home for her engagement party. “Of all the places in Los Angeles, why is Katie asking me to borrow my garden for her engagement party?” ponders Lisa. “I don’t want to have their engagement party at my house. I don’t have any party at my house but I kind of do have a very soft spot for Katie and Schwartzyso if anybody was going to ask me, I suppose they’re the only people I might possibly say yes to.”
