Now that these two are on the same page, they are talking about starting a family and it could be happening way sooner than anyone expected. Now I’m getting way ahead of myself imagining Vanderpump Rules episodes dedicated to the ever-so-trendy gender reveal party that is all over Instagram these days, a co-ed baby shower, their child’s birth with Tom Sandoval crying in the hospital waiting room, a baptism with Lisa Vanderpump as the master of ceremonies.
We need more of Scheana Marie’s mom Erika van Olphen on Vanderpump Rules. Sure, we’ve seen her and Scheana go for manicures here and there, but based on social media, I would like her to have a recurring role on the show. With the constantly shifting cast dynamic, Scheana seems like the odd girl out these days and she could really use someone in her corner.
Scheana’s mom is livid after Summer House cast member Carl Radke discussed their hookup during a Watch What Happens Live episode. Before Carl’s appearance on the show, his costar Stephen McGee and Vanderpump Rules cast members Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute all claimed that Carl and Scheana had sex. Scheana and her mom denied this on Twitter, of course. After Carl’s Watch What Happens Live episode aired, Scheana’s mom is on the defensive, yet again.
I have been waiting for this moment forever. Well, it actually hasn’t been too long. Truthfully, I have only been waiting for this moment for about a month: Summer House cast member Carl Radke finally showed up to the clubhouse to discuss those rumors that he hooked up with Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Marie. This has been discussed on many episodes of Watch What Happens Live and during podcast interviews by Stephen McGee, Kristen Doute, and Stassi Schroeder. Obviously Scheana (and her mom) denied the claims, but Carl showed up to share his version of events. Spoiler alert: it is very different than Scheana’s.
Joining Carl and Andy Cohen in the clubhouse was Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent. She discussed her newfound friendships with Katie Maloney, Kristen, and Stassi. She even commented on the speculation about James Kennedy and Logan Noh being more than just friends, and all of the other hot topics this season.
Oh man, all season on Vanderpump Rules I have really been loving James Kennedy … Until last night, that is! Down goes the Jack Daniels, and James’ decency follows suit. He was a horrible, ATROCIOUS drunken buffoon to Lala Kent and Raquel Leviss when he should have reserved that treatment for Scheana Marie. If only so Rob Valetta could rush in to be knight in shining armor and fix it. I hear he’s good at those sorts of things!
Scheana Marie invited a select group ‘non-assholes’ to Rob’s cabin in Big Bear. After the Toca Madera cheating non-scandal, she’s desperate to prove that some of her non-friends are capable of behaving like decent human beings. Except slim pickings. She can’t invite the Three-Headed SheBeasts who are too busy bedazzling scooters while fake crying apologies after their birthday party breakdowns (plus they started the rumor), so Scheana was forced to choose Jax Taylor and James?! Scheana is a cesspool of failed logic and I really believe all the therapists on this show are being wasted on Jax. Absolutely he is in need, but um… spread the ‘py, because there’s a six car pileup of people needing psychiatric attention.
Unlike some Bravo shows that have lost a bit of their luster (yet we all continue to watch anyway), Vanderpump Rules is bringing it every Monday night. These people are really going through it. There is a new story line every. single. episode. I am just living for it.
The beauty about being on a show with 536,474 people in the cast is that no one should have to reveal too much about themselves. Nevertheless, these people are. Every last one of them is divulging very personal details about their lives-even Ariana Madix has been more private in the past seasons. Now she is discussing the possibility of a friendship with Stassi Schroeder and whether she would want her own spin-off show with Tom Sandoval.
Even with all the (alleged) cheating scandals and clique drama, the most infamous story line from this season of Vanderpump Rules is the pasta-infused argument between Lala Kent and James Kennedy. Things went from zero to one hundred (real quick) when James told Lala and Logan Noh that his girlfriend Raquel Leviss was moving in with him. Then he accused them of not liking his girlfriend and Lala tried to lighten the mood when she mentioned that she and Logan ate Raquel’s pasta while James was DJing at SUR.
James was overly offended by that statement and took things to another level when he told Lala “Honey, you f*ck a fat man because he pays for your rent.” Mentioning, or even just alluding to, Lala’s man (Randall Emmett) is a surefire way to set her off. She stormed out of the restaurant and two of them started screaming at each other on the sidewalk. Over pasta. And the insults about Lala’s relationship, but it did all stem from pasta chatter, so the fans wanted to know if it was really “about the pasta.” Or is there so much more to that story?
The tough thing about being on reality TV is that being open about your life often involves mentioning other people. So when Ariana Madix opened up about the lingering effects of a toxic relationship on Vanderpump Rules, she was trying to explain why she is the person she is today, but there’s no way to convey that without talking about her previous boyfriend.
Of course Ariana didn’t mention the man by name, but she is still nervous that the ex who referred to her vagina as “disgusting” is going to retaliate against her for being so open about her struggles and the impact of that relationship on her current one with live-in boyfriend Tom Sandoval.
Thanks to Valentine’s Day, there were a lot of reality TV stars posting on social media this week. From the couples photos, to the proud single ladies, to the mother/daughter valentines, there were a lot of sweet photos to choose from for this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup.
