There are hurt feelings in WeHo tonight! Vanderpump Rules stars Katie Maloney, Brittany Cartwright and Scheana Marie have been sharing news on their social media about a Girls Night event being held at SUR tomorrow night and it’s causing a rift. Their co-star Billie Lee took to Twitter to call out her co-stars, accusing them of excluding her and insinuating it’s because she’s trans.
Brittany posted, “We are taking GIRLS NIGHT IN out tomorrow night at SUR LOUNGE! Festive libations, good music and some awesome surprises you won’t want to miss!!! See you there at 9pm!!! @SurRestaurant #girlsnightIN #PumpRules.”
Sounds like a fun time, but Billie Lee vented a few minutes later, “When yo coworkers don’t include the only trans girl in GIRLS night at your own job. On the night you work! #rudeAF #TransIsBeautiful.”
She added, “This was not a birthday at someone’s house. This was an event called GIRLS night at my job where I work on the night I’m scheduled. It’s not a matter if you like me or not! I work there.”
Katie Maloney quickly replied to Billie Lee, “I’m completely supportive and will always be supportive of the LGBTQ community. EVERYONE is invited and welcome tomorrow!”
When Kristen Doute tried to speak out, however, Billie slapped back at her. Kristen wrote, “It’s not your event. Don’t make this about something it’s not. #NoH8.” Billie sniped, “Boo you don’t work there so why are you speaking?”
Kristen added on her Twitter account, “We are not hateful people and ABSOLUTELY support the LGBTQ community. A person is a person is a person.”
It seems there might be some sort of miscommunication because when Scheana Marie posted her (likely required per their contracts) Instagram message about the event, she did include Billie Lee’s name/account. “We are taking GIRLS NIGHT IN out tomorrow night at SUR LOUNGE! Come join me, @itsmebillielee @ariana252525 @lalakent and @musickillskate for some silky robe fun and lots of SURprises!! See you there! 9pm.”
So it’s possible the rest of the cast didn’t realize Billie was scheduled to work that night? Or they all just assumed she’d be there in some capacity (working and/or attending).
TELL US – IS BILLIE LEE OVERREACTING? OR IS THERE A MEAN GIRLS SITUATION GOING ON?
