Despite the fact that Tom is turning some age in his mid-30’s that didn’t stop him and the crew from partying like it was Season 1 of Pump Rules and he was a mere babe of 28. #Adulting Tom 1, Ariana Madix, Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, Katie Maloney, and Tom 2 headed to Tao where they got crazy and boozed it up, then saw Calvin Harris.

Fun fact – Ariana Madix shares a birthday with her Vanderpump Rules nemesis Stassi Schroeder. That means the ladies threw competing parties. On the same day. Again. Oh me, oh my … what’s an invited guest to choose?!
Stassi celebrated with a murder-themed party, which seems appropriate considering that we all, on some level, have wanted to murder the self-proclaimed villain of Pump Rules. Not to be out-done, Ariana threw a Kings & Queens party. She, of course, playing the role of queen, with a throne, a giant crown, and a bedazzled leotard.
Everyone who watches Vanderpump Rules is well aware of Stassi Schroeder’s fascination with murder and all things gory and violent, so it really does make sense that she had a murder themed birthday celebration. She even bonded with her birthday twin (and Pump Rules enemy) Ariana Madix over their mutual love of murder, but no they did not have a double birthday party celebration. Obviously.
Based on social media, the cast members you would expect came through to celebrate Stassi’s birthday party. Her Witches of WeHo, Kristen Doute and Katie Maloney, were in attendance and all decked out with the theme. Stassi went to Katie and Tom Schwartz’s honeymoon so it’s only natural that he showed up for her birthday. And as the most-loved person among the cast, Brittany Cartwright attended the event as well.
At this point Tom Sandoval is a reality TV veteran. Heading into his fifth season of Vanderpump Rules, he’s seen and heard it all and is still impressed that the show has managed to retain so much realness despite the influence of fame, money, and cameras. In a new interview, Tom sheds light on the role of production and editing and how the show changed friendships and perceptions.
“I’m really proud of it, because I feel like it’s one of the realest shows on television. Especially in our environment.” What makes Pump Rules different, according to Tom, is the “deep feelings” and “love/hate relationships,” which doesn’t occur on shows when castmates meet each other on camera or hang out only when filming. “Like even when I watch Housewives, they’ll have this drama, and something really small, but it just like carries on – like five episodes. And it’s like something that would not even make it into our show.”
Even though the dynamics on Vanderpump Rules are constantly changing and whatever we know about the drama can be outdated at a moment’s notice, it seems pretty clear that there’s a divide in the cast. Opposing cliques aside, the one thing this cast always seems to agree on is their involvement in LA Pride every year.
Everyone came out (well, not exactly) for the festivities, went all out with their looks, and posted all about the Pride 2017 activities on social media.
