Stassi Schroeder is finally getting her happy ending with Beau Clark. There’s no doubt that Stassi has been through it when it comes to relationships. We first met her on Vanderpump Rules when she was dating sociopath Jason Couchi Jax Taylor. Then after Vegas Girl pregnancy rumors, and a second try, Stassi ditched Jax for Frank Herlihy (seriously, remember that douche?). That relationship cost Stassi her dignity and boss, Lisa Vanderpump, $900.
Now she’s getting married to Beau, who by all appearances seems to be a good person. Stassi’s engagement is likely going to be documented on Season 8 of Pump Rules. If her birthday antics are any indication – it may be safe to say that Stassi is going to be one hell of a bridezilla! Her best friend and biggest enabler, Katie Maloney fully supports this behavior, too. Because, of course she would.
Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix are not shy talking about their sex lives – or lack of sex lives on screen. The last couple seasons we’ve heard all about the couple’s dry spells. Ariana also has opened up about an unfortunate toxic relationship from her past that left her lacking confidence. However, there was also that one time Tom was driving drunk Ariana and Lala Kent around Los Angeles and things got hot in the backseat between the two women!
The incident got Lala in a bit of trouble with Sorry Fofty Randall Emmett. But Tom blabbing about the hookup to his friends almost got him in more trouble! Anyone else remember the look that Ariana gave Tom across SUR when she found out he spilled the tea? Iconic! Anyway, that’s water under the bridge now. Season 8 of Vanderpump Rules premieres January 7 and there are a bunch of new cast members. Tom and Ariana recently talked about who they would hook-up with from the new cast.
Season 14 of Real Housewives of Orange County is coming to a close next week with the finale. For the first time in a long time, a RHOC season has flown by! Gina Kirschenheiter’s tragic styling storyline carried the show, along with Kelly Dodd’s usual antics. We also got to know Braunwyn Windham-Burke, who I think is a good addition to the cast. Tamra Judge stirred the pot, Shannon Beador shrieked her way to a positive edit, and the demoted OG Vicki Gunvalson worked her ass off to get engaged stay relevant. All in all, the ladies stepped it up this season.
Oh, and don’t forget Emily Simpson was there – crying and sexy dancing in front of her father-in-law while her twerp husband, Shane Simpson, failed the bar for the millionth time. RHOC has been stale for quite a few seasons. This one, however, has a real edge to it that we may see shine through at the reunion.
Real Housewives of Orange County has been a rollercoaster of emotions! Last week’s episode had Vicki Gunvalson shouting her lungs out like she was on a snowy mountain in Canada. Kelly Dodd did what she does. Which is go extremely low with body and looks-shaming. On top of this, we had to see Tamra Judge’s blurred out breasts and Shannon Beador’s Spanx as they ran from security. Leaving Vicki far behind to fall down again.
In all, the Key West trip is taking us places. From Drag bars to the Cum Bucket – I am on board with this Kelly train. Driving all of the drama on this trip is the genuine thirst hatred Vicki and Kelly have for each other. Will these two ever be on the same page again?
Craig Conover is (seemingly) the most innocent man on Southern Charm. Which says a lot considering the cast of characters who are still a part of the show – (side eye Shep Rose). Southern Charm is a great reality show, but sometimes the reality behind the series can get too dark – exhibit A and exhibit B. So, I’m happy to have lighter characters like Craig brighten my viewing.
Craig has spent the past two seasons getting over his relationship with Naomi Olindo. Most of his recent time on the show is spent drinking, sleeping till the late afternoon, and conning his friends into sewing pillows. Things finally seem to be turning around for Craig however – both in terms of business and personal relationships!
Kelly Dodd is no stranger to showing it all on Real Housewives of Orange County. She clearly isn’t afraid to say what she means or call out the tres amigas. In other words, Kelly is carrying this season on her back. Tamra Judge said prior to the start of the season that Gina Kirschenheiter was going to be the rockstar to watch. I guess now it makes sense that Tamra would say this, considering she’s on the outs with Kelly.
It’s definitely Kelly who carries the show. She is not afraid to put all the worst parts of herself on TV for our entertainment. Lately, a lot of good things have been coming her way. She is now engaged to Fox News reporter Rick Leventhal. Her relationship with Rick is a positive, and interestingly, she doesn’t seem to want to show this on RHOC.
Reality TV lovers know that the best people to watch on screen are those that show us the good, the bad, the ugly, and everything in between about their lives. Some fan favorites, however, manage to get away without showing much about their personal lives. I’m looking at you, Cameron Eubanks.
Other Bravolebrities face harsh consequences for not showing parts of their personal relationships on screen. Remember what happened to Kenya Moore when she refused to let cameras film her wedding to Marc Daly? Now the tables have turned and Kenya is talking a whole lot about Marc this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Vanderpump Rules star, Lala Kent is another reality star that seems to get away with leaving out personal parts of her story on screen. This is all about to change!
When Tom Schwartz isn’t in the hot seat for blacking out and kissing women who aren’t Katie Maloney, he’s usually stuck in the middle of his two best friends. It’s no secret that there is a sort of hierarchy (in the guy’s heads) among Tom 2, Tom Sandoval, and Jax Taylor. Tom 1 and Jax are often at odds over who gets to be the “number one guy” in the group. The tension between those two is definitely going to be at the forefront of Season 8 of Vanderpump Rules. January 7 cannot come fast enough!
We’re also going to see a lot of things we never thought we’d see on Pump Rules this season. First, Jax gets married – to Kentucky sweetheart Brittany Cartwright. Then Stassi Schroeder gets engaged to Beau Clark. And rumor has it we will actually see Randall Emmett, Lala Kent’s fiancé on camera. As much as things change though, they also stay the same.
