Tom Sandoval has been slogging through the thick soup of drama on Vanderpump Rules since the very beginning, and he has come back to stir up more of it for season five! Tom shares that he and girlfriend Ariana Madix are feeling stronger than ever, though they’re still not ready to tie the knot. He also says viewers will be seeing a “new” Stassi Schroeder this season, as she tries her hand at adulting on camera.
Reflecting on how things shook out last season, Tom says he and Ariana tried to stay away from Kristen Doute above the fray as much as possible. “I really felt like we were in a good place as far as the rest of the group is concerned. We could kind of be as involved as we wanted to be, and no one could give us any shit about it; especially after last year.”
It’s no secret that Lisa Vanderpump is a crusader for all animals. She has a million pets and counting, she took her animal rights crusade to Capitol Hill, and I could go on and on with examples. It makes sense that LVP would hold a gala to benefit dogs. Lisa announced the first annual Vanderpump Dog Foundation Gala.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills queen will no doubt put on a spectacular event. I feel like Lisa never fails when it comes to anything charity-related and we all know that she knows how to rack in the money, so this should be a success.
Pretty much all of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast loves to flaunt their wealth through their clothing, homes, and other purchases, but no one’s home life fascinates me more than Erika Girardi’s. I mean, her house as its own chapel and “knowing” both Erika Girardi and her alter ego Erika Jayne, I’m honestly not at all shocked to learn that she also has a pet octopus.
I mean, if anyone was going to have an octopus as I pet, I figured it would be Erika. Plus, her go-to catchphrase and dance move is “pat the puss” so “pat the octopus” isn’t too far off. An octopus is the most random pet to have. That’s such an Erika thing to do.
Lisa Vanderpump is one of a handful of Bravo Housewives who has staying power in this sometimes precarious industry. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules star recently shared her feelings on what it means to be a reality ‘star,’ including how she initially got into the world of warring Housewives, and how she has navigated its rocky waters since.
Part of Lisa’s appeal is her depth. Lisa is not merely a “housewife” who cameras follow around for dramatic purposes; she’s also a long time business woman, brand builder, and activist for animal rights and the LGBT community. The restaurateur and humanitarian seems to understand something that many of the other Bravo Housewives (96 in total since the franchise’s inception ten years ago) often do not: Audiences stick with the person, not the persona.
Cute dogs, cute couple, and colorful autumn leaves..what’s not to love about this picture?! I don’t get the chance to say that too often while compiling this Twitter and Instagram pictures post every week, but credit where credit is due: Million Dollar Listing New York star Fredrik Eklund does social media right. Fredrik shared the pic above of himself and Derek, adding, “I love this little family.” #AllTheFeels
Happy Tuesday. Only three and half more days til the weekend. In the meantime, let’s see what our reality stars are up to this week. Above, Lisa Rinna attended a special “Watch What Happens-Live on Stage” afterparty at Revolver Video Bar.
