At this point, I’ve come to terms with the fact that I will be perpetually confused by Lala Kent and her status on Vanderpump Rules. One second she’s storming away from the show and avoiding everyone, then she’s coming back to play the anxiety card.
Lala is besties with Scheana Marie and Ariana Madix now, so I figured that she would be back for some girl drama next season, but apparently I was wrong. Just like everything Lala says, I take this with a grain of salt and know that her status on the show can change at any moment, but apparently she’s not going to be a part of the next Pump Rules season.
Aside from the her inexplicable beef with Stassi Schroeder, Ariana Madix got a lot of attention during the last season of Vanderpump Rules because of her braids- specifically the braid guy that she and Tom Sandoval paid to come to their apartment and do their hair. I’m not sure if she put her braids at jeopardy or if she just has the opportunity for more looks now, but Ariana has revamped her look with a major haircut.
Ariana is stunning, so I feel like she would look good bald, but I loved all of the intricate styles she was able to do with her long hair. She kills it though. Plus, I feel like having your hair chopped off can be pretty cathartic. Maybe she’s getting ready for some sort of fresh start to film Vanderpump Rules? Maybe I’m just reading too much into an Instagram post. Either way, she looks dope.
Whether you love watching Kate Chastain on Below Deck or you can’t stand her, you have to admit that she’s interesting. Kate always has a lot to say on everything…and everyone. She has had her fair share of drama with her fellow cast members, but she actually keeps in touch with most of them- even her former flame Ben Robinson.
I get it: it’s so easy to hate on James Kennedy, but he really is entertaining. I don’t know how I would feel if we were a part of the same friend group, but as a viewer who (sadly) doesn’t get to hang out with the cast, I am always laughing whenever he’s on screen. Still, I totally understand why he’s a polarizing figure on Vanderpump Rules. We need that though to keep the show interesting.
I’m sure Kristen Doute would disagree with me on that and I don’t blame her. James has been dragging his ex (and the reason he is even on this show) every single chance he gets. He even admitted at the last reunion that he used Kristen to become a cast member. We all saw that throughout the course of their relationship, but it was just pretty cringe-worthy to watch him say out loud.
We have a few blasts from the past in today’s reality star sightings photo roundup! First up, we have former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville out for a NYLON magazine party with her longtime boyfriend, DJ Friese. Crazy in love looks good on her. Other former RHOBH stars Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammer were also out and about.
The quasi-feud between Stassi Schroeder and Ariana Madix on Vanderpump Rules is strange to me. There’s no real source of animosity between the two of them, but it seems like they’re caught up in other people’s bull shit. I could never see them being friends, other than the fact that they’re on this show, but they did have a weirdly touching moment discussing murder during the Pump Rules season finale.
That didn’t last too long since they have been feuding on social media and in interviews ever since. Stassi just maintains that she doesn’t get where the beef is coming from and Ariana is still very much against the idea of friendship. At least we know there will be plenty of drama next season.
