Did I miss something on last night’s Vanderpump Rules? Did James Kennedy admit to hooking up “just a little” with Kristen Doute? Even more curious – did the cameras actually miss James and Kristen drunkenly hooking up?!
What I think I observed was a drunken game of telephone. Or whatever it’s called in the iPhone era. Probably something to do with Snapchatting and then sharing Snaps that were deleted and how you thought you were sexting your boyfriend SUPER ROB when in fact you were sending a disgraced Nigerian prince $300 to get his crown out of hock and on a plane to LA to bar tend into his future at SUR. I mean this could finally be the man for Scheana Marie!
Anyway! Using delightful time lapse, the episode opens hours early with Stassi Schroeder sitting on a beach with Katie Maloney and Kristen. The sand is soft and fuzzy – just like their drink-addled memories from every day the night before.
After two years of keeping the identity of her boyfriend Randall Emmett under wraps and admitting to lying for the sake of his privacy, Lala Kent has opened up about her relationship with her man and her relationship with his two young daughters. That’s right, Lala is a kind of, sort of step-mom.
Aside from gushing over her bliss with Randall, Lala threw some shade at her former BFF and one-time lover James Kennedy and his girlfriend Raquel Leviss. She owned up to her mistakes she’s made on the show and she even gave a status update on her friendship with Scheana Marie.
Every single cast member is really going through it during the current season of Vanderpump Rules. From making out with (and doing even more than that) with people outside of their relationships to arguing about pasta, almost every cast member has done something to instigate some backlash (and meme formation) from the fandom.
That’s why it’s tough to say who is “winning” this season. In a way, this could just go to the person who’s had the least amount of screen time because it would be someone with less opportunity for internationally televised embarrassment. Then again, not getting screen time, wouldn’t qualify as a “win” to most reality stars.
I’m so tired of hearing about Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright‘s pathetic relationship. I’m so tired of it that I’m actually in agreement with Tom Sandoval on the matter: Brittany stupidly chose to stay with Jax knowing he’s a low-down, dirty scoundrel, so leave her alone to stew in her own Kentucky fried juices.
I personally think Brittany loooooves laying on that accent, thick as a beer cheese dipped chicken wing, and playing damsel in distress. Not to the guys – Jax already rescued her from a Hooters farm in ‘tucky – but to the girls on Vanderpump Rules. They see it as their responsibility to rescue Brittany. Maybe because those that can’t do a decent relationship, try to micromanage other’s disaster relationships. Or maybe they know they’re all a lost cause but sweet, innocent Brittany of the slow blinking My Little Pony eyes and Dr. Pepper flavored Bonne Belle chapstick – they can save her from the Jaxing that destroyed Stassi Schroeder and so many before (and during and after) her!
Normally, it’s a bad thing for a reality TV to get less screen time than they have during previous seasons of the show, but that really doesn’t seem to be the case when it comes toKristen Doute on Vanderpump Rules. As a loyal viewer, I sure do miss her “crazy,” but as a fan, it just seems like she’s in a happy, stable relationship that doesn’t make for a great story line.
Kristen and her man Brian Carter have been going strong for a long time, but he hasn’t really been on the show much. So is there trouble in paradise? Are they even in a relationship anymore? Kristen set the record straight with a tweet.
So far, Stassi’s biggest drama this season was her birthday party freak out and tearful apology to Katie Maloney and Kristen Doutethe next day. Even so, she’s had some great on-camera interview commentary this year and she directed a lot of shade toward the Rob-sessed Scheana Marie.
