Remember when Vanderpump Rules kind of revolved around the crazy antics of Kristen Doute being obsessed with her ex? No, I’m not talking about her current obsession with James Kennedy. I am referring to her former (?) obsession with Tom Sandoval. She made the life of Ariana Madix, Tom, and even her friends a living hell. I fondly recall her uttering borderline insane things like, wishing Ariana would get hit by a Mack truck (but not die, just become horribly maimed). After
Jax Taylor word on the street told her Tom had been unfaithful to Ariana on a boys’ trip to Miami, she stalked located a random female with some unfortunate facial fillers and brought her to SUR to have a face to face showdown with Tom. At one point she even cornered a grieving Ariana at SUR and called her the c-word, and those are the things on the low end of Kristen’s psychosis.
But time heals all wounds, I guess. Though in proper society, you don’t come back from some of those things. Fortunately for most of the cast, Kristen has gone on to terrorize other people in her life. Tom and Ariana seem to have forgiven Kristen for her personal attacks, insane displays of emotion, and drunken hysterics. Now we are witnessing the birth of a brand new relationship, Kristen and Ariana’s friendship. Without context, it seems rather…odd. And that’s putting it nicely. But how did any of this go down? Was it all a dream? Did we just imagine Krazy Kritter’s 19 personalities wreaking havoc on society? Ariana shared the scoop on how such an unlikely duo joined forces and became “friends”.
Shahs of Sunset star, Mercedes “MJ” Javid and husband Tommy Feight are breathing a big ‘ol sigh of relief today! Viewers know MJ has never been a wallflower and quite open about sharing the trials and tribulations of her life with the Shahs crew.
Over the years, MJ has shared the struggle to get along with her mother, Vida Javid. A woman who blatantly insults her daughter, despite the pain it has clearly caused. I’ve always thought Vida was right up there with Jason Voorhees’ mom, minus the desire to kill camp counselors. Vida never needed a hatchet because her mouth was much more brutal. We’ve also watched MJ’s search for a man, finally finding the perfect guy for her in Tommy. First comes love, second comes marriage, then MJ wanted something to push in a baby carriage. But that wasn’t an easy task either. While I admittedly live my life under a dark cloud of snark, I’m happy to say this particular obstacle for MJ has a very happy ending.
Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Brandi Glanville, is feeling ashamed. No, she isn’t having delayed remorse over slapping Lisa Vanderpump for no reason. And she isn’t reflecting on when she was photographed, how can I eloquently put this,
with her tampon string hanging out of her pants without properly checking herself in the restroom. This isn’t even about her juvenile social media antics regarding her ex-husband’s current wife.
Our Lady of Class and Sophistication is
whining defending herself over some brand new pics that have popped up. Hi Brandi, if you didn’t already know, the internet is a thing. And when you have been struggling to stay relevant on a reality television show, paparazzi tend to take your photo when you go out in public. She isn’t exactly new to the game. So what on earth could have sparked such a dramatic response from a person known for not giving any f*cks? WAIT FOR IT!
Oh this is RICH, pun intended. Remember when Real Housewives of Orange County’s Vicki Gunvalson was hooking up with
grifter Brooks Ayers? How could you forget? Their sordid co-dependency cost Vicki friends, damaged her relationship with daughter Briana Culberson and put a huge dent in her reputation. But you know Vicki, she gotta have a man and that DISGUSTING LIAR Brooks guy was one for the record books.
Vicki was single for 5 whole minutes after her association with Brooks McCancerscammer ended when she eventually moved on with Steve Lodge. Apparently, Steve is still hanging in there. Bless his heart. But Bravo is bringing down the hammer and
forcing hoping an on-camera engagement will take place to secure Vicki’s continued spot on the show. In the interim, Vicki and her insurance company have recently been accused of defrauding an elderly woman after her spouse passed away. Hello Vicki? Yes, I have Karma on line one for you – and Karma is happy to hold until you take the call…
Now Vicki is on the other side with a lawsuit of her own, and all I can say is – good luck with this one, dear.
NeNe Leakes has been on Real Housewives of Atlanta for a minute now and she isn’t shy about telling you she’s an OG. Actually, NeNe isn’t shy about much of anything. Season 11 proved to be a trying time for NeNe and she wasted no time in making every single thing about herself. If a situation did not highlight her in some way, she made sure it did.
While living life in front of the cameras, MeMe grabbed the spotlight from Eva Marcille’s wedding. When pregnant Porsha Williams complained of back pain, NeNe let you know her pain was worse. When former cast mate Kenya Moore showed up at a party thrown by Cynthia Bailey, NeNe demoted Cynthia from friend to co-worker. And as we all know, husband Gregg Leakes is suffering from colon cancer – but NeNe’s suffering outweighed his by miles. Petty, it’s what’s for dinner! The only person this season who gave it right back to NeNe was Tokyo tour guide Aya, who doubled down on “being on time” and left NeNe in the dust when she was late for group activities. After a turbulent season of losing friends, NeNe is speaking about who should stay, who should go, and who should join the next journey of RHOA. I have an idea, can we give Aya a peach?
Still with me after that headline? Good, remember we are in this together… Romance is alive and well in LA, y’all. Currently there are no single cast members of Vanderpump Rules. Well, except for Scheana Marie who is presently hitting the sheets with Adam Spott (RUN ADAM, RUN!). But Adam doesn’t want a commitment because he
secretly fears Scheana is young and on a television show. That said, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are in the midst of planning their mashed potato buffet wedding. Stassi Schroeder is busy teaching Beau Clark the finer points of subtle emotional abuse. Longtime loves Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix are chilling in their expensive new abode. Lala Kent is serving her master sucking on baby bottles to keep those Gucci slide perks from Daddy coming her way. Basically they are all quite busy doing the Lord’s work.
And then we have the epitome of married bliss, Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney. What a perfect example of true unity, am I right? I picture them holding hands, happily skipping through a field of
edibles wildflowers, and toasting each other on being the forefront of #relationshipgoals. So what is the secret to their love that shines so bright? I’m not entirely sure we want to know…
We turn to Vanderpump Rules to be entertained, right? Watching a gaggle of people
approaching middle age who are attractive, youthful, and leading lives so different from our own is low key, non-stressful fun. The cast interacts with each other on a level that will never be required to gain admittance to a high-level IQ society like MENSA. The excessive drinking, partying, and vacations they can spontaneously take are part of what makes the show watchable.
Reality TV star fame is the (hopeful) consequence of landing a spot on a show of this nature. Fans start watching and listening to those “stars” who branch out from the task of regular filming. Stassi Schroeder has become an expert in this area. She has launched an accessory line, a successful podcast, and even wrote a book. Stassi is also becoming an expert on watching what she says because not everything is perceived as “funny”. Having a mass audience can be a blessing – until that audience starts to check you on the words you write and say.
Apparently, the Vanderpump Rules reunion for Season 7 was quite a doozy. In the past, we’ve seen Scheana Marie cry about the demise of her marriage to Mike Shay. We’ve been entertained by James Kennedy crawling across the floor whilst imitating Stassi Schroeder’s return to the show. We’ve witnessed Katie Maloney be
a refreshing ray of sunshine Katie Maloney.
Through it all, Lisa Vanderpump has tried to corral the group of
level 10 messes thirtysomethings into people who can somehow provide a lasting impact on humanity. Or at least steer clear of a social disease outbreak worthy of a CDC visit. That said, this reunion is evidently one for the record books. Lots of intensity and maybe some physical contact has appeared on the menu, courtesy of your SUR servers.
