Vanderpump Rules

Stassi Schroeder

When Faith Stowers revealed that she slept with Jax Taylor during the Vanderpump Rules Season 6 premiere episode, it seemed like she was making her play to move out of the background and secure some consistent screen time. That’s not what happened though. She just made her mark on the season and disappeared completely- i.e. going on an MTV show instead.

Sleeping with Jax while he was in a relationship wasn’t the only questionable thing Faith did though. Stassi Schroeder spilled a lot of tea in an recent interview.

James Kennedy Says Kristen Doute “Was Loving The Attention” From The Hookup Rumors Since “There Hasn’t Been Much Of Her This Year” On Vanderpump Rules

For years Kristen Doute was at the epicenter of the biggest story lines on Vanderpump Rules, but that’s just not the case this season. Then all of a sudden, rumors spread that Kristen hooked up with her ex-boyfriend James Kennedy just because some outdoor pillows were out of place during a cast trip in Mexico.

It’s a true Catch 22- Kristen is back in the spotlight, but now there are rumors that she and James both stepped out on their relationships to hook up in Mexico. They’ve both adamantly denied the rumors, but there are still plenty of cast members wondering what really happened.

Tom Schwartz drunk

After a tumultuous Season 5 (and that one alleged drunken make out at the beginning of Season 6), Tom Schwartz’s relationship with Katie Maloney is no longer the relationship in the spotlight on Vanderpump Rules. Thanks to the cheating scandal, all roads lead back to Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright this season.

So who does Tom think will be the next to get married out of all the cast members?  What does Tom think about Stassi Schroeder’s relationship with her new man Beau Clark?

Instagram Roundup

A picture is worth a thousand words, rights? So what does it say when Cameran Eubanks, Whitney Sudler-Smith, Shep Rose, Kathryn Dennis, and Patricia Altschul all post the same photo of Cameran, Whitney, Shep, and Kathryn with Cameran’s daughter Palmer? I’m sure that they were all excited to meet the new baby, but are they also sending a message about the “teams” for the rest of Southern Charm Season 5? Or maybe I’m just being presumptuous… Then again, take a look at Thomas Ravenel’s Twitter account and it’s very clear that he and Patricia are feuding these days. We shall see what happens as the season continues….

Jeremy Madix

As Ariana Madix’s brother, her roomate, and the man who saved SUR from burning down, Jeremy Madix has been on Vanderpump Rules for a while. For the most part he was just there, working hard at SUR or turning up at a party, and then all of a sudden he became a story line- and not for a “good” reason.

Billie Lee told Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute that Jeremy asked her out on a date and they warned her that Jeremy is “creepy.” Then we were blessed with some unseen footage from Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney’s wedding reception with Jeremy attempting to make a move on Stassi. Ariana’s man Tom Sandoval confronted Kristen, Stassi, and Katie about the accusations, and then we didn’t really hear from Jeremy after that. Sure, we saw the date with Billie, but they just left that story line behind. It’s understandable since there are 959548484847 people on this show, but it still feels unfinished.

Jax dumps Brittany

Spoiler alert: Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are still together. Yes, they broke up during the last episode of Vanderpump Rules, but anyone who follows them on social media is well-aware that they’ve reconciled. They tweet and Instagram about each other almost daily.

After Jax was encouraged by his “reiki master” Kelsey, he broke up with Brittany, but that was filmed months ago. They are in a much different place these days, but that still had to be rough to watch and relive.

Tom Sandoval 'proposes' to Tom Schwartz

While Tom Sandoval was giving Tom Schwartz an ‘I promise you an eternity of booze’ ring, Jax Taylor finally yanked the bandaid off and dumped Brittany Cartwright on last night’s Vanderpump Rules.

All it took for Jax to reach this inevitable conclusion was cheating with a friend, several screaming fights, a threatened moved to Florida for a fake job, a meltdown that nearly got him fired, meddling friends, a fake first date with a fake crush, the return to an abandoned identity, and one reiki instructor who fled to Africa! I mean would you stick around for the fall-out of that mess? 

Jax freaks out on Pump Rules

During the last episode of Vanderpump Rules, Jax Taylor had a complete meltdown at SUR in front of Lisa Vanderpump and the rest of the cast. In all honesty, I see why he would go ballistic: Scheana Marie decided to set up his girlfriend Brittany Cartwright with Adam Spott. Any normal person would be upset about that.

Here’s the thing though: everyone in this cast loves Brittany– who Jax cheated on with Faith Stowers– so it’s tough for the rest of the cast members to have sympathy for him given the bigger scandals in their relationship.
