This season on Vanderpump Rules, we’ve been introduced to newcomer Billie Lee. We first met Billie during the Pride episode and heard her share the story of her transition. We’ll be seeing more of her this season and she is dishing on the cast members: who has been the most welcoming, who she’s not getting along with (one guess!) and what we can expect in the upcoming episodes.
Billie sat down with Page Six to reveal that she didn’t know any of the cast members before she landed the job at SUR and she was working at the restaurant for a few months before producers approached her about filming. So far, Jax Taylor has been terrific and Ariana Madix, too, but she’s not besties with Stassi Schroeder just yet. Shocker, right?
For the past few years, the identity of Stassi’s vengeful ex has been kept a secret. Now Stassi is opening up about the incident and she is naming names- well, a name. And it’s a very familiar name, but it might not be who you suspect.
During an episode of The Morning Breath, Summer Housecast member Stephen McGee claimed, “Carl f-cked Scheana.” He later explained,“I went with Carl and Scheana back to Carl’s apartment one night and she knew where everything was.” That’s not exactly concrete evidence, so it’s not surprising that Andy Cohen looked to Kristen for further confirmation when she was a guest on his show.
Let’s hope that Luann de Lessepsdidn’t log into Instagram after she checked out of rehab earlier this week. She might feel a little bit slighted by her Real Housewives of New York costars. They did some sort of jail-themed workout class, complete with mock mugshots. Shade much? Or is it a merely a coincidence? I’m going to assume that it’s the former and just hope that this ends up contributing to a story line next season.
Aside from those glorious faux mugshots, there were some other great reality star photos for this week’s Instagram roundup.
It is tough for any outsider to understand the relationship dynamics within the Vanderpump Rules cast. They’re always fighting, breaking up, making up, and hanging out with their exes (and their significant others’ exes) on a regular basis. This show started out as the Jax Taylor and Stassi Schroeder show. That felt like a whole lifetime ago since so much has happened since then and Jax is dating Brittany Cartwright (who is friends with Stassi now).
Jax, Stassi, Brittany, (Jax’s previous hookup) Kristen Doute, and another one of Jax’s exes Rachael O’Brien all got together in Jax’s home state of Michigan to honor Jax’s father who recently passed away.
As much as I love watching Vanderpump Rules, I would enjoy it even more if the turnaround time between filming the season and the episodes airing was a lot quicker. I’ve been so intrigued by Lala Kent getting along with and hanging out with Katie Maloney, Stassi Schroeder, and Kristen Douteon social media after seasons of throwing shade. I just want to know how they got to this point where they are actually good friends, but unfortunately I am still waiting for those episodes to air.
Even though Lala was at odds with Kristen, Stassi, and Katie for some time, she has been cool with Scheana Marie for a while, so it’s pretty surprising to learn that Lala is not happy with the current state of their friendship.
It’s tough for the reality TV super fans to keep up with all of their favorite shows, let alone all of the cast members on Instagram. Fortunately for you, I did all of the social media lurking for this week’s Instagram Roundup.
Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor, Tom Sandoval, and Tom Schwartz enjoyed a boys weekend away at Big Bear. There’s still no word on who’s the “number one guy in this group,” but it looks like they all had a good time, which is something Jax could really use these days following the recent death of his father Ronald Cauchi.
