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.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Kristen Doute is having a major fan-supported come up this season. This comes after being ganged up on by Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder. It’s hard to tell if it’s Kristen is really a most-improved player or just the lesser OG evil on Vanderpump Rules. Either way, I am here for her. Truthfully, it’s difficult for me to be on the side of anyone Stassi has admitted to disliking.
Kristen has not only dealt with on-screen drama, but off-screen as well. First, Katie and Stassi tried to blame Kristen for making them look bad. Newsflash! You don’t need help there, ladies. Later, there were even body shaming pregnancy rumors swirling. Seriously, she has dealt with some twisted narratives all while having to get over her long time ex- Brian Carter. What can I say, I’m a sucker for an underdog story. And what better sidekick than the one and only baddie goddess queen, Ariana Madix?
Below Deck Mediterranean has hit the ground running with the season 5 premiere airing this week. Chief stewardess Hannah Ferrier wasted no time in being annoyed this season. It started almost immediately when she greeted her first surprise co-crew member and bosun, Malia White. It’s like she already can’t be bothered by coworkers of season’s past. In case you missed it, there are some teasers of tension between these two from Captain Sandy Yawn.
Hannah’s attitude only gets worse when Hannah meets new stewardess Lara Flumiani. We all saw in the season trailer that Lara would fill the role of stewardess who challenges Hannah’s management style this year. That became even more clear when we watched this year’s version of tablescape drama emerge. Before the yacht even leaves the dock for it’s first voyage you can tell Hannah is already over this charter season.
Yes. You read that headline correctly. Stassi Schroeder from Vanderpump Rules is tired of being called a “mean girl.” Newsflash, lady! We are tired of you BEING a mean girl. I love petty drama but ugh. It’s honestly hard to even know where to begin with her. On ean episode this season, Stassi whines (over wine, HA!) to Beau Clark about how she isn’t allowed to “outgrow” her friendship with Kristen Doute. Like who said that?
Stassi is over her former co-witch Kristen. Shocking considering she is still conveniently friends with her ex-boyfriend Jax Taylor who cheated on her, lied to her face, and has generally been a terrible person forever. Stassi was also quick to make up with Katie Maloney when she was returning to the show after leaving post-Season 3. I mean, she can forgive, when it suits her. And rather than keep the peace with her longtime TV bestie, Stassi has taken to her podcast to continue her complaints.
The Real Housewives of New York has hit the ground drunk and stumbling this season. To be fair, the women of New York have always been intoxicated messes. Losing teeth in clubs, turtle time, falling into bushes, and making out naked in pools. No shade. It’s all incredible! That said, arguably one of the messiest of the group is none other than Dorinda Medley. What little I can understand of what Dorinda says drunk is enough to take the cake with this crew. And that’s saying a lot.
This season we have watched Dorinda struggle with her break from “boyfriend”, John Mahdessian while continuing to mourn her late husband, Richard. In last week’s episode these feelings all bubbled to the surface when we watched Dorinda lash out at Tinsley Mortimer. I’m still not sure what Tinsley ever did to Dorinda, other than be born into wealth. Dorinda is still a dog with a bone continuing to bash Tinsley recently for “never owning anything“. Like, what? Dorinda at least half of your storylines are based on your late husband’s house that you let Carole Radziwill name your first season. Relax. Even though in this week’s episode Dorinda switched the focus of her anger to Ramona Singer, she is still talking about watching herself scream at Tinsley last week.
Season 10 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is underway and so far, so good! In case you missed it, this season welcomed both Garcelle Beauvais as a housewife and Sutton Stracke as a friend of. I have high hopes for Garcelle but I am absolutely LIVING for Sutton this year. She was just as uninterested in Kyle Richards‘ “fashion” and Teddi Mellencamp‘s pregnancy as I was in the premiere episode of the season. Since then, she’s only gotten better.
In episode 3 Sutton went so far as to tell Teddi to her face what we have all been thinking. She is boring and pregnancy isn’t her area of interest. Yea, yea, yea, she followed it up with saying she now finds Teddi interesting, but not until after Teddi left the table to sob. Bless this Southern belle in couture mess. She has been an absolute joy to watch and she’s finally sharing her reaction to seeing herself on the show.
