A new dawn, and new totally fake friendships as the ThreeheadedSheBeast of Vanderpump Rules seeks redemption. For all her grandstanding, Lala Kent has officially returned to the show, which is now filming. The entire cast is currently in Mexico, and low and behold, who was getting along with Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney and living to tweet about it? Why Lala, that’s who!
Stassi, Katie, Lala, and Kristen Doute shared pictures from Mexico, where everyone has seemingly gotten over Lala flashing her boobs and pretending she’d actually be desperate enough to sleep with Tom Schwartz. Apparently, the morality police have found it in their pure and perfect hearts to forgive Lala for allegedly having a married boyfriend.
Despite the fact that Tom is turning some age in his mid-30’s that didn’t stop him and the crew from partying like it was Season 1 of Pump Rules and he was a mere babe of 28. #Adulting Tom 1, Ariana Madix, Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, Katie Maloney, and Tom 2 headed to Tao where they got crazy and boozed it up, then saw Calvin Harris.
Kenya Moore stepped out for the first time since her surprise wedding to Marc Daly. She hit up the Bossip on WEtv event and flashed her wedding ring on the red carpet – see the close-up pics in the gallery. Her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars, Sheree Whitfield and Cynthia Bailey were also at the event, along with Dr. Heavenly Kimes, Tiny Harris, Rasheeda and more!
Stassi celebrated with a murder-themed party, which seems appropriate considering that we all, on some level, have wanted to murder the self-proclaimed villain of Pump Rules. Not to be out-done, Ariana threw a Kings & Queens party. She, of course, playing the role of queen, with a throne, a giant crown, and a bedazzled leotard.
At this point Tom Sandoval is a reality TV veteran. Heading into his fifth season of Vanderpump Rules, he’s seen and heard it all and is still impressed that the show has managed to retain so much realness despite the influence of fame, money, and cameras. In a new interview, Tom sheds light on the role of production and editing and how the show changed friendships and perceptions.
“I’m really proud of it, because I feel like it’s one of the realest shows on television. Especially in our environment.” What makes Pump Rules different, according to Tom, is the “deep feelings” and “love/hate relationships,” which doesn’t occur on shows when castmates meet each other on camera or hang out only when filming. “Like even when I watch Housewives, they’ll have this drama, and something really small, but it just like carries on – like five episodes. And it’s like something that would not even make it into our show.”
Even though the dynamics on Vanderpump Rules are constantly changing and whatever we know about the drama can be outdated at a moment’s notice, it seems pretty clear that there’s a divide in the cast. Opposing cliques aside, the one thing this cast always seems to agree on is their involvement in LA Pride every year.
Everyone came out (well, not exactly) for the festivities, went all out with their looks, and posted all about the Pride 2017 activities on social media.
