Since we’re starting out with the worst, Andy replays footage of James Kennedy getting eaten alive by SUR hostess Lauren, then coming to work proudly showing off his battle wounds. He’s a survivor! Lisa Vanderpump was unimpressed. The best part was learning that Lauren’s boyfriend, hot bartender Anthony, dumped her over the incident. Ouch – getting dumped for James has gotta hurt!
Stassi starts off yapping about how she ditched Xanax and is now obsessed with pot instead for her relaxing and sleep related needs. She and host Jackie Schimmel then laugh together about James Kennedy getting scolded by Andy at the reunion for being on his phone during the taping. “I couldn’t imagine if I broke out my phone in the middle of the reunion”. And then they discuss their mutual obsession with his awesomely bad music video.
Stassi then spills scalding hot tea after Jackie jokes that James and his mom are “definitely f***ing.” Stassi shares, “Well, she robbed a bank! I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this. She robbed a bank and she stole money from Kristen and it was like a huge deal.” She adds, “I don’t want to know too many details because of reasons like this, I have to say them on a podcast. So just don’t tell me.” Stassi laughs, “She might be my hero.”
The THREE-part Vanderpump Rules reunion kicks off tonight. Bravo asked each cast member what was going through their minds as they took the stage.
Lisa Vanderpump admitted she’s a little worried about James Kennedy and Jax Taylor, adding, “I hope that they keep it civilized … There is one person in particular that is so volatile I just, you know, don’t want them getting out of their seats. That is a factor as well … You know it is going to kick off at some point.”
A caller asks if Lisa would hireStassi Schroeder to work at SUR again. “NO.” Lisa says her presence onVanderpump Rules is “authentic” because she’s still very much a part of that group but she will not employ her. “She’s too much a pain in the ass,” Lisa mutters under her breath. Ha.
It’s safe to say that Monday’s episode was deliciously predictable, with Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute crashing Villa Rosa to attend Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s engagement party. Jax’s girlfriend Brittany Cartwright proved once again that she has more patience than the entire cast combined (times a million), and Scheana Shay and Adriana Madix are once again biffles…even if their reconciliation was a product of Scheana’s insecurities about being ousted by Stassi. All is right with the world.
When I found out that the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion was going to be stretched out over three episodes, I was like, Seriously? Nothing happened! But I honestly didn’t have that reaction when I read the “drama-filled three part reunion” press release for Vanderpump Rules. This season, which is on track to be the highest rated season, did not disappoint this hopelessly addicted fan.
About the ratings, Bravoshared, “On track to deliver its highest rated season ever among all demos, Vanderpump Rules season four is averaging 1.5 million P25-54, 1.4 million P18-49, and 2.2 million total viewers, up 17 percent, 8 percent and 13 percent respectively versus last season.” Look below for the schedule, as well as a sneak peek, for the Vanderpump Rules reunion.
Lala admits that she was “heavily intoxicated” at Tom and Katie‘s engagement party. About interrupting Kristen Doute‘s speech, she shares, “I have massive anxiety when people repeat themselves. I was ready to have her wrap it up.”
Scheana, who is insufferable this entire segment, says to Lala, “It was so rude and so disrespectful whether we were all thinking it or not. It wasn’t your day. It was not. It had nothing to do with you. You were barely invited.”
Tom says he wasn’t ruffled by Kristen and Stassi’s entrance, though! He says the event “was a nice healthy mix of excitement, joy, and anticipation heading into the engagement party. I was being cheap at first but eventually loosened the purse strings.”
