It’s so hard trying to keep track of Lala Kent’s presence on Vanderpump Rules. Is she still a part of the show? Is she done with it forever? It seems like that answer is constantly changing. Lala left the show, denounced the show, returned for the reunion, and started taking a lot of photos with Scheana Marie and Ariana Madix. Now it seems like she’s all in again, but who knows.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I was actually pretty moved by Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz wedding. I know we didn’t even get to the actual vows part yet, but it was so sweet when Jax Taylor and Tom Sandoval surprised Schwartz by flying out his triplet brothers to attend the wedding.
It was really nice, but a lot of the viewers were so confused by the couple spending so much money on towel invitations and flower arrangements instead of paying for his family to attend the event. Still, this is a way nicer criticism than the hate the couple has faced all season in response to their drunken arguments.
The viewers have seen Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz go through some tough (and awkward) times this season on Vanderpump Rules. If this wasn’t a reality show and we didn’t already know that they got married, there would be a lot of doubt about whether or not they were going to tie the knot. This is especially true after the joint bachelor/bachelorette party episodes that took place in New Orleans.
It’s hard for the viewers to “ship” this couple because all they’ve seen is drunken fighting this season, but apparently they are in a much different place these days. I have no idea how you go from calling each other names and siding with other people in arguments to wedded bliss, but I guess we will have until next season (or the reunion episodes) to see what Tom and Katie are like as a married couple.
Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute is a master when it comes to stirring the pot and she owns up to everything she’s done. It was Kristen’s instigation that brought us that instantly iconic “battered wife” monologue from Tom Sandoval and restored Pump Rules to its former glory. Obviously, I am going to watch the show no matter what, but this season was lagging until that point. Thank you, Kristen.
I have to admit that I was skeptical of the Vanderpump Rules/ Summer House crossover when the Wirkus Twins made a not-so-subtle visit to go have lunch with Stassi Schroeder at SUR. It felt way too forced to me, but that episode with Kyle Cooke and Stassi’s turtleneck bathing suit in the hot tub got me hooked. And ever since I’ve been living for Stephen McGee’s commentary on all the Summer House antics. Needless to say, I was pumped to listen to Stassi interviewing Stephen on her podcast.
In my dream world, Bravo would air a mini series with the Vanderpump Rules cast and the (relevant) Summer House cast members going on vacation together, but for now, I am more than satisfied with Stassi and Stephen’s talk about the reunion episodes, pot stirring, and the relationships on both shows.
The New Orleans trip resurrected this season of Vanderpump Rules. The whole thing was such a hot mess that I don’t even know where to begin. Luckily for me, I don’t have to since Jax Taylor and Tom Schwartz just opened up about the latest antics that went down this season. Plus, these two really have a way with words.
Jax and Tom recapped (what little they remember about) the bachelor party in New Orleans; they shared their opinions on James Kennedy’s girlfriend; they reflected on Scheana Marie’s divorce (spoiler alert: they both saw it coming); and of course they both addressed the criticisms about their own relationships.
Even though I hate it when a season of Vanderpump Rules comes to a close, I absolutely love it when the cast gathers to rehash everything that went down during the reunion episodes. The cast just taped this year’s reunion last Friday, but no previews have surfaced – yet. Still, there is actually something that might be even more shocking than the reunion itself and that’s what the cast did after. At least, reunion host Andy Cohen was pretty surprised by the revelation.
I would like to say that I stopped trying to understand the cast dynamics a long time ago, but I am still puzzled by how these people are best friends and rivals at the same time. They love each other and hate on each other equally and they are just way too odd to figure out. Still, I am still puzzled by their behavior antics ninety nine percent of the time.
