When Scheana Marie and Mike Shay’s separation was announced right before the last Vanderpump Rules premiere, I couldn’t help watching every episode with a bit of analysis. Whether Shay was in a scene or not, I couldn’t help reading into every single thing with the current knowledge that they were going through a divorce.
Weirdly enough, Jax Taylor was right when he said that he had “milk with a longer shelf life than that marriage.” Most viewers felt bad for Scheana after learning that Shay just left and drained all of their money, but there’s also a good amount of fans that felt like Scheana was putting up a front about how good the marriage actually was. Scheana explained why she lied about her relationship and Shay’s philandering and how she even planned out their “story line” before the show actually started.
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.
The Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright spin-off was one of the worst kept secrets in recent memory. They were posting a ton of pictures and videos from Kentucky and they put up some super conspicuous photos of them “hanging out” in Bravo offices in front of the logo on the wall. So we all knew the Vanderpump Rulesspin-off show was in the works, but we now know that it’s officially happening this summer. Obviously, I’m going to watch it because I watch pretty much everything on Bravo, but what I really want to know is how the other Pump Rules cast members feel about it.
I know that everyone loves Brittany, but she’s only been a full-time cast member on the show for one year, so I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the more seasoned cast members were jealous. I know they’ve all hated on Jax over the years, but he consistently brings it, so he really does deserve a spin-off in my opinion- well, as much as someone making poor choices on reality TV deserves any opportunity.
If I was on Vanderpump Rules, I would go on vacation as soon as the last reunion episode aired (and it seems most of the cast HAS done just that). It has to be so exhausting to turn up and argue with your friends (and frienemies), rehash all of the drama when the episodes air, and discuss it all again at the reunion. That’s why I don’t blame Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright for escaping West Hollywood and visiting his family in Florida.
I know that Jax and Brittany filmed their spin-off series in Kentucky with her family, but I really wish there were some cameras around when they were with Jax’s family. I cannot be the only one who wants to see what it’s like to be Jax’s parents and sister. I would love to see how they deal with him being such an infamous reality star.
Well that’s it – another season of Vanderpump Rules done and done! But the third part of the reunion ended with quite a bang when Scheana Marie‘s estranged husband Mike Shay appeared to say everything and nothing at all.
Good lord – the girls on this show are ridiculous! Like Katie Maloney, nothing is ever Scheana’s fault as she just demands, cries, and throws tantrums then blames everyone else. Tom 2 – consider Shay your warning; Robert Valleta – consider Tom 2 your warning.
Before we witness Scheana Marie collapse into a cloud of pressed powder, we have much ground to cover. While Andywasted time last week trying to make Stassi Schroeder‘s brother ‘happen,’ the reunion could have focused on all the drama between James Kennedy and Kristen Doute, or that time Tom 2 almost canceled his wedding while pooping in a wedding gown, as Tom 1 was crying in a Sia costume. Aaaaahhh… good times in New Orleans!
I will never stop watching Vanderpump Rules, but I do find myself missing the show’s early days. Those first couple of seasons were iconic. From Jax Taylor and Stassi Schroeder’s all-encompassing romantic relationship to single Jax “dating” multiple people at once, there was always something crazy happening in every single episode. I do still love this show, but there are plenty of things that I miss about the beginning of Vanderpump Rules.
I’m all for moving forward, but there are plenty of other things about the beginning of Pump Rules.
Without a doubt, Brittany Cartwright is the most lovable person on Vanderpump Rules. It’s kind of surprising that she fits in with this cast of characters, but she really does bring a much-needed sense of balance and kindness to a show that’s chock full of drama.
It could have been really awkward for Brittany to come on a show and join a group of friends that includes her boyfriend’s ex girlfriend, former hookups, and occasional enemies, but she somehow made it work and navigated the unique situation like a pro. Even so, Brittany (somehow) gets social media hate. Don’t worry about it though. Sure, Brittany seems like the nicest person on the planet, but she knows how to handle herself when needed.
