I know we’ve all referred to the stars of Vanderpump Rules as “Vanderpump Fools” but you know, if the condom fits! Happily some of these people have taken the tentative steps towards adulthood, however most of them are still mixing reiki with booze and wondering why their back hurts.
On part 2 of the reunion, Jax Taylor continued to be confused about, well, everything. Lala Kent defined feminism and her finances, and Katie Maloney cried about how amazing Tom Schwartz is. Regardless of how flawed it may be, it’s nice to finally see these two happy – especially considering how unhappy their wedding was!
Last night kicked off the Vanderpump Rules reunion and the main topic on the agenda were all the horrible relationships (what else?) floating like backwash in the half-drunk cocktails at SUR. From Tom Sandoval‘s gripes that Lisa Vanderpump doesn’t take him seriously as an entrepreneur and restaurant designer, to the many, many delusional thoughts of Scheana Marie Shay Famewhorini and her ROBsession.
Jax Taylor was on an emotional roller coaster, which wasn’t too different from Jax Taylor-coaster we’ve seen all season, except instead of depending on reiki master Kelsey to feel up his feelings, he was actually mourning the death of his father. Through his tears, Jax describes it as the worst thing that’s ever happened to him but the loss made him realize what an impossible mega-douche he’s been to everyone since, oh, time infinitum. It’s like someone held the evil stepmother’s mirror up to Jax and showed him the truth! That person was not Stassi Schroeder, shockingly.
Shep admitted that he doesn’t watch Vanderpump Rules and Jax admitted that he doesn’t watch his own show or Southern Charm. Nevertheless, they both had a lot to say about the drama on each other’s shows.
We always love when the Vanderpump Rules stars do podcast interviews because they tend to be pretty free with their words and share stories they might not typically share in a mainstream outlet interview. As much as we love those rogue interviews, Stassi Schroeder may be regretting one of her recent chatfests because the end result is Faith Stowers suing her!
Stassi went on The Bitch Bible podcast and spilled a whole lot of tea about Vanderpump Rules sidekick Faith Stowers and it’s now biting her in the ass as Faith revealed last night on The Tomorrow Show that she is suing Stassi over some of the accusations she made in that interview.
As a self-proclaimed reality TV connoisseur, I can’t help thinking that there are few thing more frustrating than a pivotal moment occurring away from the cameras. This means that we will (most likely) never have proof of what actually happened.
It’s a true Catch 22- Kristen is back in the spotlight, but now there are rumors that she and James both stepped out on their relationships to hook up in Mexico. They’ve both adamantly denied the rumors, but there are still plenty of cast members wondering what really happened.
All it took for Jax to reach this inevitable conclusion was cheating with a friend, several screaming fights, a threatened moved to Florida for a fake job, a meltdown that nearly got him fired, meddling friends, a fake first date with a fake crush, the return to an abandoned identity, and one reiki instructor who fled to Africa! I mean would you stick around for the fall-out of that mess?
