At this point, I’ve come to terms with the fact that I will be perpetually confused by Lala Kent and her status on Vanderpump Rules. One second she’s storming away from the show and avoiding everyone, then she’s coming back to play the anxiety card.
Lala is besties with Scheana Marie and Ariana Madix now, so I figured that she would be back for some girl drama next season, but apparently I was wrong. Just like everything Lala says, I take this with a grain of salt and know that her status on the show can change at any moment, but apparently she’s not going to be a part of the next Pump Rules season.
Aside from the her inexplicable beef with Stassi Schroeder, Ariana Madix got a lot of attention during the last season of Vanderpump Rules because of her braids- specifically the braid guy that she and Tom Sandoval paid to come to their apartment and do their hair. I’m not sure if she put her braids at jeopardy or if she just has the opportunity for more looks now, but Ariana has revamped her look with a major haircut.
Ariana is stunning, so I feel like she would look good bald, but I loved all of the intricate styles she was able to do with her long hair. She kills it though. Plus, I feel like having your hair chopped off can be pretty cathartic. Maybe she’s getting ready for some sort of fresh start to film Vanderpump Rules? Maybe I’m just reading too much into an Instagram post. Either way, she looks dope.
Whether you love watching Kate Chastain on Below Deck or you can’t stand her, you have to admit that she’s interesting. Kate always has a lot to say on everything…and everyone. She has had her fair share of drama with her fellow cast members, but she actually keeps in touch with most of them- even her former flame Ben Robinson.
The Vanderpump Rules viewers are used to the drama at Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd’s restaurant SUR, but now their original California restaurant Villa Blanca is making headlines and it’s for a pretty scary reason. The restaurant caught on fire.
Thankfully, it seems like all the people who were present are safe and sound, but I’m sure it was a horrifying experience.
I get it: it’s so easy to hate on James Kennedy, but he really is entertaining. I don’t know how I would feel if we were a part of the same friend group, but as a viewer who (sadly) doesn’t get to hang out with the cast, I am always laughing whenever he’s on screen. Still, I totally understand why he’s a polarizing figure on Vanderpump Rules. We need that though to keep the show interesting.
I’m sure Kristen Doute would disagree with me on that and I don’t blame her. James has been dragging his ex (and the reason he is even on this show) every single chance he gets. He even admitted at the last reunion that he used Kristen to become a cast member. We all saw that throughout the course of their relationship, but it was just pretty cringe-worthy to watch him say out loud.
When Scheana Marie and Mike Shay’s separation was announced right before the last Vanderpump Rules premiere, I couldn’t help watching every episode with a bit of analysis. Whether Shay was in a scene or not, I couldn’t help reading into every single thing with the current knowledge that they were going through a divorce.
Weirdly enough, Jax Taylor was right when he said that he had “milk with a longer shelf life than that marriage.” Most viewers felt bad for Scheana after learning that Shay just left and drained all of their money, but there’s also a good amount of fans that felt like Scheana was putting up a front about how good the marriage actually was. Scheana explained why she lied about her relationship and Shay’s philandering and how she even planned out their “story line” before the show actually started.
The quasi-feud between Stassi Schroeder and Ariana Madix on Vanderpump Rules is strange to me. There’s no real source of animosity between the two of them, but it seems like they’re caught up in other people’s bull shit. I could never see them being friends, other than the fact that they’re on this show, but they did have a weirdly touching moment discussing murder during the Pump Rules season finale.
That didn’t last too long since they have been feuding on social media and in interviews ever since. Stassi just maintains that she doesn’t get where the beef is coming from and Ariana is still very much against the idea of friendship. At least we know there will be plenty of drama next season.
The Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright spin-off was one of the worst kept secrets in recent memory. They were posting a ton of pictures and videos from Kentucky and they put up some super conspicuous photos of them “hanging out” in Bravo offices in front of the logo on the wall. So we all knew the Vanderpump Rulesspin-off show was in the works, but we now know that it’s officially happening this summer. Obviously, I’m going to watch it because I watch pretty much everything on Bravo, but what I really want to know is how the other Pump Rules cast members feel about it.
I know that everyone loves Brittany, but she’s only been a full-time cast member on the show for one year, so I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the more seasoned cast members were jealous. I know they’ve all hated on Jax over the years, but he consistently brings it, so he really does deserve a spin-off in my opinion- well, as much as someone making poor choices on reality TV deserves any opportunity.
