It’s almost like Vanderpump Rules is a sociological experiment on modern love, right? Every other day there are new cheaters to eclipse the previous cheaters with crazier cheating scandals and bigger liars, all compounded by the ever-shifting relationships around accommodating these facts. Can’t anyone get in the right pants? Or keep their members in the right pants, rather?
Take for instance the evolution of Jax Taylor and James Kennedy. They’ve both ‘interacted’ with the same women (Kristen Doute and Lala Kent), which created a palpable neanderthal assholian hatred towards each other – like crabs in a bucket – as they battled over being too similar, but now they’re bonding over how much they cannot stand Kristen. Which is hilarious considering neither one of them ever seemed to like Kristen to begin with! And now, of course, Kristen is trying to destroy Jax’s relationship with Brittany Cartwright. Not because Kristen likes Jax (or has any lingering feelings for him), but because she loves Brittany (and once hooked up with her) too much to let her be ruined by Jax.
There is nothing worse than a professional reality star. You know what I’m talking about, because nearly every person on Vanderpump Rules now occupies that position. They fakely (yes I know that’s a fake word) work at SUR, they’re fakely are friends with each other, and they fakely pretend to care about causing drama in each other’s lives.
To point: last night’s episode was an amazing pile-up of so many [mostly fake] car crashes, I don’t even know where to begin, middle, and end.
As much as I love watching Vanderpump Rules, I would enjoy it even more if the turnaround time between filming the season and the episodes airing was a lot quicker. I’ve been so intrigued by Lala Kent getting along with and hanging out with Katie Maloney, Stassi Schroeder, and Kristen Douteon social media after seasons of throwing shade. I just want to know how they got to this point where they are actually good friends, but unfortunately I am still waiting for those episodes to air.
Even though Lala was at odds with Kristen, Stassi, and Katie for some time, she has been cool with Scheana Marie for a while, so it’s pretty surprising to learn that Lala is not happy with the current state of their friendship.
It’s tough for the reality TV super fans to keep up with all of their favorite shows, let alone all of the cast members on Instagram. Fortunately for you, I did all of the social media lurking for this week’s Instagram Roundup.
Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor, Tom Sandoval, and Tom Schwartz enjoyed a boys weekend away at Big Bear. There’s still no word on who’s the “number one guy in this group,” but it looks like they all had a good time, which is something Jax could really use these days following the recent death of his father Ronald Cauchi.
Of course I don’t want the current Vanderpump Rules season to end, but at the same time, I cannot wait until the cast gets together for the reunion episodes. One reason is that it seems like almost every woman in this cast has issues with Scheana Marie and I want to see it all play out while they’re all spray tanned and glammed up.
Recently, both Scheana and her ex Robert Valletta blamed the Vanderpump Rules cast for their breakup, so it seems like the bad blood goes both ways. And I want to know why. I want to know every single thing that went down this season and I want to know now. Unfortunately, I have no insider information, but a recent interview with Scheana does make it clear where she stands with most of the other cast members. Well, it is at least clear where she stands with Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Katie Maloney– i.e. not on good terms.
For instance, why is Kristen going to the opening of James Kennedy‘s See You Next Tuesday DJ gig at SUR? Doesn’t she despise her cretin ex boyfriend with the passion of a thousand disturbed bees? Don’t ALL of them actually hate James?! Hasn’t the hatred of James Kennedy been a storyline for, oh, I dunno – the past 3 seasons?! Apparently Kristen would go to the opening of an envelope, though, and when being on Vanderpump Rules is your only J-O-B…
Rob even called in to the Watch What Happens Live After Show when Scheana was one of Andy Cohen’s guests to make it clear that there’s no hard feelings associated with the split. He also threw some major shade at Scheana’s frienemies.
It can be tough to understand the Vanderpump Rules social circle at times, but it is clear that these relationships are authentic- unlike most other reality TV show casts. No matter what these people have done to each other (which is a very long list based on episode story lines alone), they are there for each other when it really matters.
Jax Taylor’s Vanderpump Rules costar Katie Maloney has opened up about how he is handling the death of his father and how the other cast members have been supporting him.
