To say that this has been a rough year for Katie Maloney on Vanderpump Rules would be a major understatement. Not only is she at the center of most of the drama this season, but she is also really feeling the heat from the Pump Rules fandom on social media. Now Katie is defending herself against the haters and justifying her actions by giving the viewers some insight on her conflicts with Scheana Marie Shay, Ariana Madix, and LaLa Kent.
Hopefully Katie has some reasonable explanations for her behavior this season, but I guess that’s up for you to decide. I was all for Katie “finding her voice” and moving away from being portrayed as Stassi Schroeder’s sidekick, but now it’s hard to know how I feel- not that I actually know these people or have any role in this friend group. Needless to say, Katie’s latest interview is interesting.
Without even seeing one preview for the Vanderpump Rules reunion, I can already get a feel for where they’ll be going with the arguments questions whenever it airs and that’s because the reunion seating chart was posted on the Bravo website. Sure, everyone does have to sit somewhere, but you can really tell which story lines are being prioritized and who is on which side based on the seating chart.
One thing that stands out to me is that LaLa Kent doesn’t have a spot on the chart, but that wasn’t super surprising since she just peaced out from the show without saying a word and has been shitting on the show and its cast ever since. However, pics of her from Scheana Marie Shay’s Snapchat posts show she was present- so I guess that was a surprise to Andy Cohen as well?
Although many of our favorite reality stars won’t be attending the Oscars this weekend, they can at least garner invites to the pre-parties! OK! Magazine rolled out the red carpet for Lala Kent, Scheana Marie, Kristen Taekman, Kenya Moore, Lauren Bushnell and even Ariana Madix‘s brother Jeremy at their pre-Oscar bash on Wednesday night.
Other reality stars spotted out and about this week: Kyle Richards running errands, Joanna Krupa photographed around L.A., Julianne Hough in Vegas and many more!
As a person who’s way too into Vanderpump Rules, I wish the episodes would speed up and be more in line with what the cast is up to in real time. Last week, we saw Scheana Marie and Mike Shay celebrate their two year wedding anniversary and it felt strange to watch since they are not together anymore. There’s still no sign of a breakup this season, so it feels like we are really behind. Especially since Scheana has been talking about her secret boyfriend in interviews and on social media.
If you follow her on Snap you have probably seen a male limb in the corner of her stories and wondered who she was dating. If you watch Scheana’s recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, you might even remember that Andy Cohen remarked that he met Scheana’s man before the show and that he was tall. Well now, the mystery is solved. Scheana’s mystery man has been revealed.
On last night’s Vanderpump Rules poor Tom Schwartz saw the writing on the wall and it said “RUN!” First off, how stupid was the witch hunt over Tom’s two years in the past drunken Vegas hook-up and then Kristen Doute‘s insistence that this is the justified reason Katie Maloney is constantly mean and angry.
I fully agree with Tom Sandoval – that’s ridiculous, and Tom 2 is a “battered wife.” Now I feel more sad watching this. More sad-sad, even, because the only way Tom can tap into his own inner rage and express his feelings is while wearing a dress. Or being tortured by reptiles. When Tom 1 and Jax Taylor are the lone sane members of your collective friend group, things are not going swimmingly.
Both Ariana Madix and Brittany Cartwright are on the outside of the infamous Vanderpump Rules clique that consists of Stassi Schroeder, Katie Maloney, and Kristen Doute. Yes, I know that everyone adores Brittany, but when I say she’s “on the outside,” I mean that she is outside of the drama. And if you watch this show, you know that those three aren’t the biggest Ariana fans. Either way, both of these ladies became a part of the Pump Rules cast later on in the series so it’s interesting to get their take on all of the controversy.
Ariana and Brittany opened about about how Katie’s wedding planning behavior can be misinterpreted, the cast drama, and the accusations of homophobia against Brittany’s mom Sherri Cartwright after her reaction to Jax Taylor’s birthday roast.
This has been a rough season of Vanderpump Rules for Katie Maloney – to put it mildly. Based on the footage that has been shown, the viewers have not been feeling Katie this season. She even had her Twitter on private for a while. So I am curious to know what Katie thinks of her portrayal and what she has to say about her issues with Scheana Marie and Ariana Madix.
Katie went from being the person everyone was rooting for on Pump Rules to the cast member who is definitely getting the most heat from the fandom. Katie opened up about a lot of topics, from baby plans with Tom Schwartz and their (lack of) birth control method to those rumors about Jax Taylor‘s dip in the man pond back in the day to the downtown action that allegedly went down between Brittany Cartwright and Kristen Doute.
Happy Valentine’s Day, esteemed Reality Tea readers! To demonstrate how much I love you all, here is a gushing, love-filled recap of Vanderpump Rules. Last night, we found ourselves dealing with stinky situations in the city of saints, sinners, and voodoo. No, it was not corpses escaping their graves in a zombie apocalypse, it was just more Tequila Katie.
As always, the three-headed shebeast proceeded to terrorize the menfolk in a manner befitting of epic trilogies from the ancient years before cell phones could take photos and people were able to communicate with only the push of tiny buttons. What I’m saying is that Tom 2 is on his own Odyssey, charting a territory only tepidly paved by Tom 1‘s Iliad before him (that would be surviving Kristen Doute). I can’t compare Jax Taylor to anything other than Dr. Jackhole and Mr. Jax’d. He writes his own unsavory story – warts and all.
