I almost have no words for the dysfunction of last night’s Vanderpump Rules. Maybe Stassi Schroeder is aging in reverse. Not in that ‘she looks fabulous way’ of Lisa Vanderpump, but of the OMG – is she really throwing a toddler temper tantrum at her own birthday party. I think I read a Berenstain Bears book about that called “Too Much Birthday.”
Could Stassi and Ariana Madix buy a 2-for-1 therapy session on Groupon? Or maybe Jax Taylor‘s reiki healer can mend the hole in Stassi’s forehead by using her calming touch to transforms it into a halo of happiness. Is that medically possible? Jax and Stassi can skip off into the sunset together happy, at peace, alive! Kristen Doute would lose her soulmate.
This season on Vanderpump Rules, we’ve been introduced to newcomer Billie Lee. We first met Billie during the Pride episode and heard her share the story of her transition. We’ll be seeing more of her this season and she is dishing on the cast members: who has been the most welcoming, who she’s not getting along with (one guess!) and what we can expect in the upcoming episodes.
Billie sat down with Page Six to reveal that she didn’t know any of the cast members before she landed the job at SUR and she was working at the restaurant for a few months before producers approached her about filming. So far, Jax Taylor has been terrific and Ariana Madix, too, but she’s not besties with Stassi Schroeder just yet. Shocker, right?
Kyle Richards is still reeling over Lisa Vanderpump storming out of the restaurant in a huff this week on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kyle shared her side of the situation in her latest blog. She stands firm that Lisa was just miffed over her and Dorit’s “moment” and not because they didn’t pay enough attention to her lawsuit news.
“When we first sat down Lisa mentioned the lawsuit that she had been hit with had been dropped. I had purposely not talked about the lawsuit out of respect to Lisa. Yes, it was on TMZ and other outlets, but that doesn’t mean we want to talk about it and give it more attention. I was very happy to hear that it had been dropped, and both Dorit and I both expressed that. I love Lisa and Ken and was happy to know that that weight had been lifted off their shoulders. We talked about it for a while and talked about not wanting negativity in our lives then cheered to it being dropped.”
The Housewives discussed the drama on their shows. Kyle was fresh off of the episode when Lisa Vanderpump ditched Dorit Kemsley in a restaurant and of course, Bethenny had to answer some questions about her costar Luann de Lesseps following her arrest and rehab stint.
After five seasons of scandal, it looks like Vanderpump Rules Season 6 is the toughest one yet for Jax Taylor. It started out with the revelation that he cheated on Brittany Cartwright and he has had some scandal to address during every episode ever since.
During the last episode, Lisa Vanderpump got upset when Jax was significantly late to bartend at an event she was hosting. Pretty much everyone in the cast gave Jax shit for being late, but he claims things did not go down the way they came across on television. Reality TV not actually depicting reality? Shocking.
Last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills led to yet another issue between Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump about defining the boundaries of their friendship. I see both sides of this argument. I’d also like to remind them that in the middle of their bickering is a little follicle-ly unstable blonde woman named Dorit Kemsley, who cannot and will not stop talking shit about everyone she calls a friend.
Actually last night everyone (*except Dorit*) was more human. I credit Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave‘s influence. She’s chill, relaxed, absent of pretense, and despite being publicly scolded and denigrated over inappropriate stemware application, she STILL invited everyone to her ‘beach cottage’ for a potluck. Something about casseroles and dips puts everyone in a ‘let’s get real’ mood. Huddled around Teddi’s kitchen island, surrounded by pita chips served from Pottery Barn dishes, the women all showed their vulnerable and softer roots as opposed to their usual Febreezed exterior.
For the past few years, the identity of Stassi’s vengeful ex has been kept a secret. Now Stassi is opening up about the incident and she is naming names- well, a name. And it’s a very familiar name, but it might not be who you suspect.
Sometimes it’s not all diamonds and rose in Lisa Vanderpump‘s world. Sometimes the fancy parties held in her honor end in tears and the fancy restaurants she owns go up in smoke. Such was the case on last night’s Vanderpump Rules.
Lisa is now the Editor In Chief of Beverly Hills Lifestyle Magazine, which I’d always assumed was one of those free magazines, but because this is Beverly Hills that free magazine still is behooving of the fancy of Beverly Hills. Apparently it’s a thing people pay money for, which means Lisa wants a fancy party to celebrate her new position there. Makes sense. What does not make sense is that Lisa puts Stassi Schroeder in charge of said party. Predictably it’s a disaster.
