The longtime Vanderpump Rules have seen a lot of changes among the cast members. Some of them have grown into better people. Others are just getting into even more trouble than they were before.
One person who has seen a lot, from the very beginning is Peter Madrigal. He’s been on the show since day one and he runs Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant SUR, as one of the managers.
Peter recently appeared on Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef to share his insights on the show. He was asked to name the people who changed the most for the positive and the negative. As far as the positive goes, Peter had a pretty surprising answer, considering all the recent backlash. Peter answered, “I think Jax [Taylor] has changed for the positive, especially getting married, settling into the life” That’s a…. ummmm…. unexpected response.
Peter insisted, “He’s changed. He enjoys cutting the lawn and he enjoys just chilling out.” Wow, such character development there. As far as Jax’s drama from the most recent season, Peter explained it saying “He was settling into the change in his life,” i.e. his marriage. Peter also said that Jax is just “trying to figure himself out.”

He also gave a lot of credit to James Kennedy, saying he has changed “big time.” Peter added, “He’s had the most change. It’s crazy, you know? From drinking every day to [now], he’s kind of an inspiration to me. I found myself drinking every day [during] this quarantine.”
When he was pushed to name the cast member who’s changed in a negative way or let fame get to their head, Peter could not think of anyone. Instead, he insisted, “I think everyone has changed for the better.” It should also be noted that Peter doesn’t even watch Vanderpump Rules.

Still, Peter maintained, “Everybody that I’ve been around has grown up and changed for the better.”
And, then he brought the conversation back to the positive. Peter remarked, “The one who has matured a lot is [Tom] Schwartz. He freaked out bartending at Pump and now he’s a partner with Lisa. That’s quite a trajectory there.” It really is. If anyone deserves a bar, it’s Peter, considering that Schwartz never worked a full shift at any of Lisa’s restaurants.

All in all, Peter emphasized, “Like I said, everybody grows up. Everybody matures and everybody changes for the better, you know?”
