Vanderpump Rules

ATLANTA, GA - JUNE 27: TV personality Kenya Moore at

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!

The Vanderpump Rules crew headed to the Kyle Chan #LOVECAMPAIGN event at SUR. Ariana Madix, Tom Sandoval, Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz, and Scheana Marie were joined by their bosslady, Lisa Vanderpump. Looks like Katie and Scheana might be getting along again! Or at least able to stand and pose for a photo together. That’s progress.

Below we’ve also got pics of Karlie Redd, Towanda Braxton and more!

Ariana Madix Celebrates Birthday

Fun fact – Ariana Madix shares a birthday with her Vanderpump Rules nemesis Stassi Schroeder. That means the ladies threw competing parties. On the same day. Again. Oh me, oh my … what’s an invited guest to choose?!

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.

Even though I credit Jax Taylor’s antics for the initial success of Vanderpump Rules, I don’t really feel like anyone was asking for this spin off series with Brittany Cartwright. Obviously everyone loves Brittany, but this show seems like an obvious second coming of the Simple Life, but with romance thrown in. I don’t know how entertaining it will be to watch Jax struggle with farm chores while he tries to find himself in Kentucky.

Nevertheless, I’m still going to watch because I tune into pretty much every show Bravo has to offer. A first look at the series has been released and it’s pretty much exactly what we all expected.

Lisa Vanderpump‘s mission to make life better for our four legged friends continues. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star celebrated the second annual World Dog Day yesterday, along with some of the Vanderpump Rules cast (they’re currently filming) and even a few Little Women: LA stars stopped by.

Lisa was joined by James Kennedy, Christy McGinty, Todd Gibel and even controversial Little Women: LA “cast sidekick” Plastic Martyr was photographed at the event.

Everyone who watches Vanderpump Rules is well aware of Stassi Schroeder’s fascination with murder and all things gory and violent, so it really does make sense that she had a murder themed birthday celebration. She even bonded with her birthday twin (and Pump Rules enemy) Ariana Madix over their mutual love of murder, but no they did not have a double birthday party celebration. Obviously.

Based on social media, the cast members you would expect came through to celebrate Stassi’s birthday party. Her Witches of WeHo, Kristen Doute and Katie Maloney, were in attendance and all decked out with the theme. Stassi went to Katie and Tom Schwartz’s honeymoon so it’s only natural that he showed up for her birthday. And as the most-loved person among the cast, Brittany Cartwright attended the event as well.

As much as I am entertained by pretty much everything I watch on Bravo, I can’t help being even more intrigued by what happens behind the scenes to make my favorite reality shows happen. I want to know if Housewives actually do “amicably part ways” with the network or if that is just a go-to line, like I suspect.

Even though I watch Bravo whenever possible, I still can’t get enough content and I want to know more about how it all works.

Tom Sandoval & Ariana Madix

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.
