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.
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.
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 Schwartzand Katie Maloney’swedding, 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.
It was an eventful weekend for the Kardashians and other reality stars. We’ve got an all new roundup of reality star photos for you! Khloe Kardashian not only celebrated her baby shower, but also her baby daddy’s birthday. Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky were among the many guests for Tristan Thompson‘s birthday celebration at Beauty & Essex this weekend. Also there: Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and many more! Other Kardashians (Kim, Kourtney and more) were spotted attending a high school basketball game together.
Another big event this weekend: the iHeartRadio Music Awards. We have photos of Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and her husband Edwin, Dance Moms star JoJo Siwa, and more.
On last night’s Vanderpump Rules, the Toms demonstrated that age is just a number and even when you’re 35, you can still pretend to be 21 with no responsibilities. I guess when you have stunted bartender jobolescence, growing up is hard to do! Even if you have “buishischeness deschisions” to make!
SUR is back in action with a facelift, because Lisa Vanderpump turns raging fires into restaurant redesign, and everything winds up looking a little fresher and sparklier. The new chandelier at SUR has the added benefit of making everyone look younger. Tom and Jax look positively like their first season selves. Too bad all Hollywood ‘facelifts’ don’t turn out so well! This is all a prequel to Tom Tom, which the Toms will get a larger taste of during their ‘work trip’ to Vegas.
Lisa will show Tom 1 and Tom 2 “a day in the life of the Vanderpump regime.” Which is more than just design elements, but showing them what running an actual business looks like. A business which has nothing to do with pretend statement necklace collection, or ‘online beauty blogs’ that get updated once every 3 months. Or at least that’s her plan…
