Pump Rules

Tom-Schwartz-Reality-Life-Podcast

Unfortunately, fans still have to wait a while for new episodes of Vanderpump Rules. Sure there’s the Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright spin-off to tide us over, but that’s not the same. Nothing beats having the whole crew together, turning up, offending each other, and still (somehow) remaining friends.

In the mean time, Tom Schwartz opened up a little bit about what to expect when the show returns. The restaurant with Lisa Vanderpump and Tom Sandoval is happening – slowly, but surely. He and Katie Maloney seem to be doing well in their first year of marriage and Tom is publicly discussing the possibility of expanding their family.

Scheana Marie Shay

Last year one of Scheana Marie’s neighbors complained about her and sued her because there was supposedly marijuana smoke and a lot of noise coming from her apartment. She also supposedly left food outside for a cat which attracted ants.

The neighbor decided to sue Scheana and the building management for a rent discount and damages. Now it seems like the door has closed on this situation. No word on whether this will make it as a part of a Vanderpump Rules story line, but the fans will see whenever the season returns.

The dueling cliques definitely dominated the story lines last season on Vanderpump Rules – well, that drama and the wedding events with Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz. If you follow the cast on social media, you must have noticed some super random new friendships.

If you don’t follow the cast, then you’ll probably be shocked whenever these new episodes air. Why? Get ready for it: Katie and Lala Kent are actually friends. Yes, hell has frozen over and pigs are flying. They are getting along, taking pics together, and putting a halt to the trash talking.

Can Jax save the day?

If you have been paying attention to Vanderpump Rules over the years, you know who Rachael O’Brien is. She is friends with the girls in the cast and she is one of Jax Taylor’s many ex girlfriends.

Needless to say she has a lot of insider knowledge and good stories- especially when it comes to Jax.

Dating Brittany Cartwright is arguably the best decision Jax Taylor has ever made. That’s not necessarily saying a lot considering all of the antics we have seen him pull on Vanderpump Rules, but Brittany truly is a gem. I never in a million years thought that the Jax I watched during Season 1 would ever enjoy spending a day at Disney Land, but it seems like Brittany has softened him.

This relationship has lasted longer than anyone expected and Jax and Brittany are actually a pretty adorable couple…. when he’s not harassing her for turkey sandwiches.

Even though I credit Jax Taylor’s antics for the initial success of Vanderpump Rules, I don’t really feel like anyone was asking for this spin off series with Brittany Cartwright. Obviously everyone loves Brittany, but this show seems like an obvious second coming of the Simple Life, but with romance thrown in. I don’t know how entertaining it will be to watch Jax struggle with farm chores while he tries to find himself in Kentucky.

Nevertheless, I’m still going to watch because I tune into pretty much every show Bravo has to offer. A first look at the series has been released and it’s pretty much exactly what we all expected.

Stassi-Schroeder-Birthday-Brittany-Cartwright-Kristen-Doute-Katie-Maloney

Everyone who watches Vanderpump Rules is well aware of Stassi Schroeder’s fascination with murder and all things gory and violent, so it really does make sense that she had a murder themed birthday celebration. She even bonded with her birthday twin (and Pump Rules enemy) Ariana Madix over their mutual love of murder, but no they did not have a double birthday party celebration. Obviously.

Based on social media, the cast members you would expect came through to celebrate Stassi’s birthday party. Her Witches of WeHo, Kristen Doute and Katie Maloney, were in attendance and all decked out with the theme. Stassi went to Katie and Tom Schwartz’s honeymoon so it’s only natural that he showed up for her birthday. And as the most-loved person among the cast, Brittany Cartwright attended the event as well.

As much as I am entertained by pretty much everything I watch on Bravo, I can’t help being even more intrigued by what happens behind the scenes to make my favorite reality shows happen. I want to know if Housewives actually do “amicably part ways” with the network or if that is just a go-to line, like I suspect.

Even though I watch Bravo whenever possible, I still can’t get enough content and I want to know more about how it all works.
