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?
It is awkward watching these Vanderpump Rules episodes leading up to Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney’s wedding since their own friends are constantly trashing their relationship and questioning their decision to be husband and wife. I cannot even imagine how Tom and Katie feel watching it or even how their friends feel after saying what they have said – especially since Katie and Tom did actually end up getting married.
Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval opened up about that, as well as the gay speculation about them, the combined bachelor/bachelorette party antics in New Orleans, a stalker fan named Brian, and more, on the Daily Dish podcast.
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.
It has been a rough ride for Stassi Schroeder on Vanderpump Rules. She went from the undisputed queen of the show (and birthdays) to leaving and returning to grovel for the cast’s forgiveness. Now that Stassi is back in the fold, she has a lot to say about the cast.
