We are only four episodes into season 2 of the 90 Day Fiance break out franchise 90 Day Fiance the Other Way. While some of the cast are basically repeating old storylines, we actually have a new crop of interesting people to follow. There’s the age-old (no pun intended) story of Sumit and Jenny Slatten who are going forward with her move to India. Deavan Clegg is still taking her entire family to South Korea. (All to live with unemployed Jihoon Lee. Wait, is stealing and selling cellphones a job?) Supposedly Deavan moved because a family member tried to kidnap her while pregnant? Idk. On a more interesting note, the wholesome couple we don’t deserve, Armando Rubio and Kenneth Niedermeier are stealing viewers’ hearts. They have a rational and truly romantic but tragic story. Check our most recent episode recap for more.
Then there’s Brittany Banks and Yazan. Call me biased but I love a gold-digger-esque story. Give me all the Anfisa Nava or Larissa Dos Santos Lima plot points. Inject them into my veins. For the time being, I actually think Brittany is with Yazan for the right reasons. Her dad is simply lovely, so I don’t predict many daddy issues. BUT SHE HAS AN EX WHO IS 85. Now you’ve caught my interest…
In the words of the iconic Luann de Lesseps, “can you believe it, girls”!? It has been less than 3 weeks since the firings of Vanderpump Rules cast Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute! Also, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were axed. Anyone care? Didn’t think so. I just like to repeat their names next to garbage to build that association forever. Moving on. So the long and short of it is that Stassi has been dumped by her PR firm and then was picked up by a new one. This new place is shoving Stassi’s pregnancy down our throats, likely in hopes that we forget about her racist actions towards former castmate Faith Stowers. Kristen, on the other hand has been mostly quiet. Well, except her forced apology after this all came to light. At least it’s something!
Both Kristen and Stassi have lost a lot of financial opportunities as a result of finally being held accountable for being terrible people. Kristen was dropped by her book publisher. The witches wine business has been canceled. Oh and Stassi’s thirsty and wholly uninteresting podcast has been taken off all platforms! I’m over here rejoicing for some bleak bits of justice left in this world. Others are out here trying to get these two back on our screens. No seriously, some people ACTUALLY still enjoy these two. Keep reading, but hold on tight.
The Vanderpump Rules kids (and by kids I mean middle-aged adults) are at it again! As fans cry for Jax Taylor to be fired and he is dropped from an eye-wear company deal… not even Lance Bass could stop from announcing ending his business with Jaxy-poo. This is the same couple of week that Stassi Schroeder confirms her pregnancy, Stassi and Kristen Doute are fired from VPR, and we get to finally end this miserable season of the show.
Are you keeping up? Good. If you have been watching Vanderpump Rules for a while (and I assume you have because no one would stick around if this was their first season), then you remember Billie Lee. For those of you who somehow don’t know, Billie is a transgender cast-member of seasons past. She is best known for her activism, attempted education of this ignorant AF cast, and getting into an epic screaming match with Lala Kent. Specifically, she tried (and was shut down) to speak to Stassi about her problematic podcast statements on the show. She’s been commenting on the lack of VPR diversity since before it was cool. Also, she had sex with a ghost. Iconic.
On this week’s episode of Real Housewives of New York we *sort* of got a fairy tale ending and send off for the beloved Tinsley Mortimer. Of course, any happiness this woman experiences is immediately crushed by the ever-bitter Dorinda Medley. (By the way, if anyone cares, I am still looking for answers as to why Dorinda treats Tinsley this way. Comment below!). Ramona Singer has even spoken out recently claiming Dorinda needs anger management classes .
Despite no longer being on the show, Dorinda has had a hard time keeping Tinsley’s name out of her mouth. She has recently made claims that Tinsley doesn’t own anything. Um. Tinsley and fiance Scott Kluth donated $20k to a RHONY editor whose family experienced a Coronavirus death. Who cares what she owns? She’s spending money right, regardless of whose it is. Dorinda also claims that Tinsley blocked her on Instagram. Well, even after riding her limo off into the Chicago sunset Tinsley has returned to a recent quarantine edition of Watch What Happens Live with castmate Leah McSweeny where she addresses these claims.
If you’ve been living under a rock you may have missed that Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute have been fired from Vanderpump Rules due to their racist behavior towards former cast member Faith Stowers. Stassi and Kristen have since hired a team to combat the damage. They’re very concerned over their already lackluster public images. A business so pristine they also represent the ever-classy Brandi Glanville and Phaedra Parks! After watching reportedly pregnant Stassi rely on her 15-year old brother to defend her, it’s no surprise that remaining garbage cast Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are trying to claim innocence in this mess. They would never bother apologizing and making nice with Faith the way Kristen has. Hell, even mostly uninvolved Lala Kent has made amends with Faith.
There is already a cry coming from viewers asking that Jax be fired. His womanizing, problematic homophobic past (which has ironicaly been called out by Stassi), and now claims that he has been blatantly racist towards 90-Day Fiance star Jay Smith aren’t boding well for our old pal Jason Cauchi. But what about his Kentucky fried bride? Well, she’s still claiming she had nothing to do with Faith’s mistreatment by the VPR cast. Interesting. Since Faith seems to be saying the exact opposite. And we know this woman carries a full purse of receipts.
Where to even begin with this story? To even think about untangling the web these problematic, hypocritical, thirsty people have woven exhausts me. But here I go. So…to begin…I think we all know by now that Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute have been fired for their racist behavior. (Note: Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens were too, but that’s hardly as earth-shattering in comparison). These firings have caused a major uproar in the Bravoshere. This includes fans who don’t want the network to stop with just these four. Specifically, there is a call right now for the network to fire Jax Taylor.
When I say “fans” I am including 90 Day Fiance star Ashley Martson. Just like every love story that gently progresses from a Vegas cheating scandal, divorce threats, and clothes thrown in the street, Ashley and Jay Smith are now living together as a couple. Not only that, but Ashley has spoken out, via Instagram of course, to defend Jay while trashing Jax.
It was only 11.5 weeks ago, after our nation was met with a global pandemic, that we all came together and bonded over Tiger King. This absolute shit show of a series taught me about love, loss, polygamy, meat trucks, and that just about anyone can run for an office. Speaking of, in case you missed it, Joe Exotic is still waiting on that pardon from reality-star-turned-president, Donald Trump. And we’re all still waiting on his record deal!
I’m sure all you cool cats and kittens haven’t forgotten Joe’s nemesis Carole Baskin. The woman who is accused of feeding her murdered husband to tigers. Carole is remarkable to the point that even Cardi B has taken shots at her. Since then, it’s been revealed that Carole is actually in control of Joe’s zoo. Of course, Joe is in prison and this zoo was being run by Jeff Lowe. Are you keeping up? Well, it sounds like Jeff isn’t about to let this eviction destroy his chance at the spotlight. Or whatever this mess is considered.
