Usually when a show gets moved to Friday nights, that’s a bad sign for its future. However, Andy Cohen insists that he’s very happy with Married to Medicine these days. During the last episode of Watch What Happens Live, Andy shared, “People are always asking me what’s the best show on Bravo right now. Right now, Vanderpump Rules and Married to Medicine.” He also said, “Married to Medicine is some of the realest stuff I’ve seen on a reality show ever.”
Aside from getting the shaft from Bravo and being moved to Friday nights, Married to Medicine gets little to no shine from the network. If this is one of the two best shows on Bravo right now, where is the love?
Most of the people who tuned into the last episode of Vanderpump Rules got some secondhand embarrassment for Stassi Schroeder thanks to her now-ex-boyfriend Patrick Meagher. She admitted that he blocked her on everything so she would not “bother” him during his trip to Amsterdam. Who blocks his girlfriend to enjoy a vacation? The strong personality that we saw for years on this show was getting pushed around by this douche bag with a straggly man bun and it made me uncomfortable. Where was the Stassi that we have watched for years?!
Even worse, Patrick said he didn’t care if she had sex with other guys as long as she didn’t have an emotional connection with them – at her birthday party, surrounded by her close friends and family. Who does that!? Love Stassi or not, it was hard to watch and not be infuriated on her behalf. Thankfully, Stassi was on Watch What Happens Live the same night that Vanderpump Rules episode aired and confirmed that she has a new man in her life.
As a faithful viewer of both Vanderpump Rules and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I just cannot decide how I feel about Lisa Vanderpump. Watching Vanderpump Rules, I want to start bartending so Lisa can adopt me and take me under her wing with a restaurant named in my honor. When Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is on the next night, I’m scared of falling victim to secondhand manipulation while I sit on my couch at home. It is essentially a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde situation.
To add to my confusion, the woman who stormed out of a lunch because she felt ignored while Dorit Kemsley comforted Kyle Richards while she was crying is the same person who is an avid philanthropist and LGBT advocate. It’s just so tough to reconcile my thoughts when it comes to Lisa Vanderpump, yet I will never turn away from any of her shows and I have seen every single episode. Multiple times.
As much as I loved Stassi Schroeder’s commitment to the murder theme of her birthday party, it was tough not to develop second hand embarrassment watching her storm out of her own event, yelling at her best friends, and leaving them all with the bill.
Thankfully for Stassi, she appeared on Watch What Happens Live on the same night that episode aired, to clear some things up. She didn’t really have an excuse for her behavior, but at least she owned up to it.
I almost have no words for the dysfunction of last night’s Vanderpump Rules. Maybe Stassi Schroeder is aging in reverse. Not in that ‘she looks fabulous way’ of Lisa Vanderpump, but of the OMG – is she really throwing a toddler temper tantrum at her own birthday party. I think I read a Berenstain Bears book about that called “Too Much Birthday.”
Could Stassi and Ariana Madix buy a 2-for-1 therapy session on Groupon? Or maybe Jax Taylor‘s reiki healer can mend the hole in Stassi’s forehead by using her calming touch to transforms it into a halo of happiness. Is that medically possible? Jax and Stassi can skip off into the sunset together happy, at peace, alive! Kristen Doute would lose her soulmate.
Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute hasn’t worked at SUR in a long time, but the reality star has plenty to dish about her time at the restaurant. In a new game of “never have I ever” with Us Weekly, she spills on SUR, James Kennedy, and more!
Kristen shares what things she has posted on social media and later regretted: “I regret every photo that I’ve ever posted of James Kennedy and myself on Instagram, that I hopefully have been able to go back and delete.” She may have deleted them from Instagram, but she says they’re also saved to Facebook and they love to remind her with the “memory” pop up every so often.
