We are only two episodes into this season of Vanderpump Rules and it looks like it might be the toughest one yet for Jax Taylor. Yes, after five seasons of debauchery, he has completely outdone himself by cheating on the sweetheart of SUR, Brittany Cartwright. That’s right, Jax didn’t take a whole season to admit it this time. So that’s some progress…. Well, not really, but in this case it is.
When Jax stopped by the Bravo clubhouse for the latest Watch What Happens Live episode, Andy Cohen shared, “Jax just told me he’s never been more nervous to be on this show.” And he was so right. Jax was visibly uncomfortable for the entire episode.
The friendship between Cynthia Baileyand Kenya Moore has come a long way since Kenya critiqued some model’s “coochie crack” at a casting session for the Bailey Agency during her first season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. These two did not hit it off immediately, but then they became very close friends- not “best friends” as Cynthia pointed out during the cast trip to Puerto Rico, but good friends.
Now Cynthia is sticking up for Kenya more than she ever has and she even walked out of the room when Marlo Hamptonstarted to question the validity of Kenya’s marriage. Cynthia explained why she got so emotional during that cast trip and more during her latest appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
Andy Cohen strikes a pose with Lisa Rinna‘s daughter, Delilah Belle Hamlin, at an UGG event in NYC. Also spotted out: Kim Kardashian at The Tot holiday pop-up celebration at Laduree at the Grove in L.A.
I don’t blame Andy Cohen for pushing for a hookup between Shep Roseand Stassi Schroederwhile they were both guests in the Bravo clubhouse during the last Watch What Happens Live episode. They’re both Bravolebrities. They have a good amount of mutual friends. They are both very open about how much they want to be in a relationship.
Shep even has his own Southern Charm spin-off show called Relationshepwhich documents his quest for a love interest, so it makes sense that Andy brought up his love life during the interview. Probably no one is surprised by this prediction, but it does not look like Shep found “the one,” since he admitted to hooking up with Summer House cast member Jaclyn Shuman pretty recently.
Kim questioned Kenya’s marriage and Kenya came back at her and questioned Kim’s tweet to Chrissy Teigen asking who her daughter Brielle Biermann had to blow to get some John Legend tickets. To say things got out of hand is not enough. These two took their insults to another level. Remind me again about why they actually hate each other. I don’t blame Kim for checking Kenya after she wandered off into the unfinished basement at Chateau Sheree without permission, but this feud just seems so random.
The seating arrangement at Real Housewives reunion shows is a pretty big deal. Of course, host Andy Cohen is in the middle, but the couch the women get assigned to sit on say a lot. Usually it shows who’s on which side and the women with the most to say sit on either side of Andy.
The women next to Andy are usually cast members with the seniority or just the women who have most drama of the season. With that said, looking at the seating chart for the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, does not make sense for a lot of reasons.
Danielle made that very clear when she threw shade (and even some direct insults) at Jacqueline, Caroline, and Kim on Watch What Happens Live last night. Believe it or not, she just kept it old school with her beef and there was not one Dolores Catania dig the entire episode. She’s probably saving those up for the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion taping.
It’s the end of a disappointing season for The Real Housewives Of Orange County, especially for Peggy Sulahian who, unless Bravo is even more desperate than we imagine, will likely be a one-season wonder. Peggy’s perpetual confusion and resting stank-face did nothing to endear her to viewers. She also didn’t seem to enjoy herself on the show – like, ever. Thus, here are (likely) the last words and testament of the housewife who might have been but never was. She came, she saw, she locked herself in a hotel room! Then she sat at the reunion and mean-mugged Andy Cohen for two hours. Good times!
Peggy doesn’t think Shannon Beador acted with class this season, reflecting, “The funny part is when Shannon says, ‘I’m old school, and I have manners, and those manners flew out the flippin’ door, this year.’ Well, that explains all that I experienced with her. If “manners out the flippin’ door” is her explanation of why she ‘reacted’ that way with everyone, then I must accept it. Looking back and based on what Tamra [Judge] said about Shannon’s denial about her marriage, it could make sense, but the jury’s out.” Peggy says she does have sympathy for Shannon going through a painful divorce, though.
