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.
Thankfully she had Ariana Madixon hand for support. The two of them discussed Jax’s cheating (obviously), the allegations that Tom Schwartzmade out with someone that wasn’t his wife Katie Maloney, and get ready for this: Ariana’s friendship with Kristen Doute. It is possible for every person on this show to get along (no matter what issues they have or what mean things they’ve done to each other) and it absolutely amazes me.
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…
There has been a lot going on with all of your favorite (and least favorite) reality stars this week, which means that Instagram was full of new photos. Jax Taylor got support from his Vanderpump Rules costars (past and present love interests) Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Brittany Cartwright in Michigan at a “Celebration of Life” event to honor his father who recently passed away. Meanwhile Scheana Marie cozied up to (yet another) one of Brandi Glanville’s exes- Gerard Butler- and posed for a selfie with him, of course. She even claims that he was the one who insisted on taking the photo.
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.
At best, it can be said that Scheana Marie lacks self-awareness. Scheana’s frienemy Stassi Schroeder described her as narcissistic during the last Vanderpump Rules episode. Then there’s Scheana herself who adamantly denies her betrayal and dismisses her comments as jokes that just didn’t land.
The last Vanderpump Rules episode centered around everyone’s (alleged) adultery. Jax Taylor admitted to cheating on his girlfriend Brittany Cartwright and this has been the main story line all season. Tom Schwartzput himself on a break from taking shots after he blacked out and made out with a woman who isn’t his wife. And just for good measure, Katie Maloney and Kristen Doute claimed that Scheana’s new man Robert Vallettakissed someone else.
