A new roundup of reality TV stars social media pics to kick off your weekend!
Above: Ken Todd and Lisa Vanderpump celebrate the opening of their very pink dog rescue center Vanderpump Dogs. “Thank you to all of you who have come out to support us this week for the opening of Vanderpump Dogs Rescue Center! We are thrilled to be open!” shared Lisa. “Come visit, shop, and adopt a puppy! Follow @vanderpumpdogs for updates! #adopt #vanderpups”
In the land of SUR and SURvival, all amounts to one’s role in the annual photoshoot where themes range from nearly naked, naked, to naked with accompanying awkward sexual encounters. This year Lisa is trying to take that up a notch by adding a last supper of hedonism complete with a fake roasted pigs and grapes on Ariana Madix‘s butt. BUT more on that later – Lisa’s first order of business is to ask Katie why on earth she and Tom 2 went on a vacation and spent the entire time in an extended “flare up”?
Seriously why does Katie call their arguments flare-ups? It makes it sound like a herpes outbreak.
The Vanderump Rules gang is leaving the drama of New Orleans behind. Tonight we get back to Tom and Katie’s wedding planning, blind dates, and celebrating the return of the SUR photo shoot!
Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz ask Lisa Vanderpump if she’ll officiate their wedding. Lisa expresses concern over their seriousness in making a marriage work. Katie sobs. Jax Taylor offers to step in as the officiant if Lisa turns them down. Tom equates this to asking Lucifer to baptize you.
Bethenny Frankel and Alexia Echevarria attended the opening of Estefan Kitchen in Miami. MJ Javid and Tamar Braxton helped Kardashian bestie Malika Haqq celebrate her birthday. Andy Cohen hosted the 8th Annual Lenny Zakim Fund Casino Night In Boston. Melissa Gorga was spotted out and about in NYC.

TELL US – WHICH PUMP RULES STAR HAD THE BEST STYLE?
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.
