It’s safe to say that Monday’s episode was deliciously predictable, with Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute crashing Villa Rosa to attend Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s engagement party. Jax’s girlfriend Brittany Cartwright proved once again that she has more patience than the entire cast combined (times a million), and Scheana Shay and Adriana Madix are once again biffles…even if their reconciliation was a product of Scheana’s insecurities about being ousted by Stassi. All is right with the world.
When I found out that the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion was going to be stretched out over three episodes, I was like, Seriously? Nothing happened! But I honestly didn’t have that reaction when I read the “drama-filled three part reunion” press release for Vanderpump Rules. This season, which is on track to be the highest rated season, did not disappoint this hopelessly addicted fan.
About the ratings, Bravoshared, “On track to deliver its highest rated season ever among all demos, Vanderpump Rules season four is averaging 1.5 million P25-54, 1.4 million P18-49, and 2.2 million total viewers, up 17 percent, 8 percent and 13 percent respectively versus last season.” Look below for the schedule, as well as a sneak peek, for the Vanderpump Rules reunion.
“I kind of took a backseat to all the other issues this week. Clearly there are still a lot of problems brewing with everyone, but the real important issues were the causes being supported,” shares Eileen, who goes on to write a mean-spirited blog influenced by her “other” issues with Lisa Vanderpump. Sad. 🙁
Lisa Vanderpump has endured her fill of being called a manipulative spider. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star admits she “withdrew” from the drama and has not watched the remaining episodes. Instead she’s approaching the remainder of the season (and the reunion) with utter futility and switching her focus to important issues.
“I cannot invest in the vicious conversations, the aggressive pettiness from some Housewives who clearly have little else to focus on,” explains Lisa.
“How different life was seven months ago. I guess the only thing constant in life is change, and boy did I experience change in 2015,” says Yolanda. “I fought to live, I loved, I lost, I missed, I hurt, I trusted, I made mistakes, but most of all, I learned..and with that knowledge I choose to move forward, one day at a time.”
Yolanda says she’s proud of Camille Grammer for sharing her “journey” and turning her “mess into a message,” sharing, “I was happy to be able to support her beautiful event, even if it was just for a quick visit.”
First up Camille Grammer returns to throw a shopping extravaganza for women’s cancer. As a cancer survivor herself, Camille is well aware that diamonds cure all. Of course, Yolanda Foster manages to upstage Camille’s designer pageant gown (featuring a side cut-out and Jolie slit!) by debuting her all-new pixie cut, but at least Yolanda got herself out of bed. Praise Jesus! Fear not – Camille looked beyond amazing.
Lala admits that she was “heavily intoxicated” at Tom and Katie‘s engagement party. About interrupting Kristen Doute‘s speech, she shares, “I have massive anxiety when people repeat themselves. I was ready to have her wrap it up.”
Scheana, who is insufferable this entire segment, says to Lala, “It was so rude and so disrespectful whether we were all thinking it or not. It wasn’t your day. It was not. It had nothing to do with you. You were barely invited.”
Tom says he wasn’t ruffled by Kristen and Stassi’s entrance, though! He says the event “was a nice healthy mix of excitement, joy, and anticipation heading into the engagement party. I was being cheap at first but eventually loosened the purse strings.”
