The fact that Brittany Cartwright is dating Jax Taylor and she is good friends with Jax’s most significant ex-girlfriend, Stassi Schroeder, is something that will never cease to entertain me. That’s why I was happy that the two of them joined Andy Cohen in the clubhouse to discuss Vanderpump Rules on Watch What Happens Live.
Remember in the beginning when the cast of Vanderpump Rules had actual goals? Future careers and the like into which they hoped to nestle once their debauched days at SUR (and their sex appeal) passed? Suddenly Jax Taylor is one of those people – those realists. Except now, instead of it being the right thing, it is oh-so very wrong. Because what of the future of bartending for life on reality TeeVee?
I personally think a spinoff in which Jax ventures out into the real world – getting up for work everyday, pulling his shit together, really working that reiki would be interesting. Apparently I am alone. Because friends before future, bro!
In the SURvile community of Vanderpumpian Forever Kids we are STILL celebrating Jax’s 308th birthday. The leprechaun of eternity has already danced his jig at Hooters, but now Brittany Cartwright, who is just so exasperating, has planned a group trip to Playa del Carmen. Play, play away forever young (at heart) in the Mexican sun. There’s two things wrong with this: 1) Jax doesn’t deserve it. He’s horrible to Brittany; 2) He doesn’t even want to go. Instead he wants to stay in LA and wallow in his midlife crisis. Especially in his reiki instructor’s arms.
Many of the Vanderpump Rules cast turned out for Kyle Chan’s Dark Disney Birthday Party at Sofitel Hotel. A few of the cast members in attendance: Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval, Katie Maloney, Kristen Doute, James Kennedy, Jeremy Madix and more!
Little Women L.A. star Terra Jole attended the Pandas premiere in Los Angeles.
The good news is that Jeremy Madix got the most screen time he’s ever had during the last episode of Vanderpump Rules. The bad news is that the spotlight was on him because Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute warned Billie Lee that Jeremy is “creepy” after he asked Billie out on a date.
So of course Jeremy’s sister Ariana Madix and her man Tom Sandoval flipped out and stepped up in Jeremy’s defense. The editors also blessed us with some previously unseen footage of Jeremy hitting on Stassi at Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney’s wedding, which wasn’t the most flattering. Then again, if most of us were filmed mid-wedding reception, the footage wouldn’t be the most flattering.
I really hate it when I have to confront political or social quagmires in a reality show – like when last night’s Vanderpump Rules address the oh-so-prescient ‘me too’ movement (albeit without actually saying the words). Ironically, given the (well-deserved) criticism she took for her own attitude and statements about other women who came forward, it was Stassi Schroeder raising alarm and complaining about people always defending men.
The man in question is Ariana Madix‘s brother Jeremy. Jeremy asks Billie Lee out on a date, which she’s excited about, but when she shares the good news with Stassi and Kristen Doute their four-way flashers immediately go on. Kristen warns Billie to keep the date “in public” and Stassi says Jeremy is “creepy.” Stassi recounts that at Katie Maloney‘s wedding Jeremy was hitting on her – and everyone else – in a way that was frankly uncomfortable and camera footage reveals him grabbing Stassi in a bear hug while promising to leave her alone. And it was creepy! And uncomfortable.
As much fun as it is to be a Vanderpump Rules fan, it is a major commitment because there is a lot to keep up with. There are so many people in the cast, major plot developments in every single episode, and new rumors that emerge multiple times a day via social media and interviews.
Ariana Madix set the record straight on Scheana Marie’s alleged hookup with Summer House cast member Carl Rake, the rumors that her brother Jeremy Madix is dating new cast member Billie Lee, the recent gossip that Bravo has its cast members sign STD clauses, and other Vanderpump Rules hot topics.
We are in the middle of Hanukkah and just a week away from Christmas. This means that all of our favorite reality stars are attending holiday events, rocking holiday outfits, and spending lots of time with their families. It also means that they’ve shared a lot of photos- just in time for the weekly Instagram Roundup.
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.
