The trailer for Vanderpump Rules Season 8 dropped last week and it looked good. Season 7 wasn’t the best since most of the cast got along and they’ve all settled down with serious relationships. We needed more and it looks like Season 8 will deliver.
Anyone who has followed the news in between seasons knows that there are some feuds brewing in Season 8. With that said, we already knew about Jax Taylor’s fall out with Tom Sandoval, although the exact cause is still unclear. The same can be said for Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney’s highly-publicized issues with Kristen Doute. Neither of those plot points was a “surprise” to anyone who saw the trailer, but the dramatic music along with those flashback clips paired with the Lisa Vanderpump narration got me hyped. And so did the new cast members. It’s comeback season Pump Rules. After many viewers yawned throughout last season, they’ve brought in some reinforcements. Let’s meet the new people.
At the end of the day, no one can escape cancer. It doesn’t matter how rich you are or how famous you’ve become, this disease affects everyone. If you are lucky enough not to have it, you probably know someone who does. In 2018, Vanderpump Rules star, Ariana Madix was diagnosed with melanoma. This is obviously a far cry from the usual news we get from the Pump Rules camp. This does not involve alcohol or betraying a significant other. Nothing was filmed to provoke sympathy or attention.
We might actually be able to learn something from this one. And really, everyone should heed the warning. Ariana and longtime love Tom Sandoval were busy living their best lives. But while they were buying big houses and creating fancy cocktail books, something not so great was happening in Ariana’s body. She questioned her physician repeatedly over the years about a mark on her skin, and finally it was tested. Now Ariana is opening up about her diagnosis and subsequent surgery. She also has a message we should all listen to.
Whether you agree with the results or not, the people have spoken. The People’s Choice Awards went down on November 10 and there were some big winners in the reality TV categories. And even the people who didn’t win showed up
to get some press enjoy the party.
I’m not gonna lie, I wish I got an invite because there were cast members from some of my favorite shows in attendance and I would just love to see them all interact. Real Housewives, Vanderpump Rules, The Bachelor, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians cast members showed up for the award show.
Just because Lisa Vanderpump is no longer on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, doesn’t mean we get to stop talking about her. Because, you know, she has another show on Bravo. In fact, it has been reported viewers will be seeing even more of Lisa on Vanderpump Rules next season due to her departure from RHOBH. Stand down haters!
Lisa wasn’t going to let a little thing like
losing all of her friends dog drama keep her from adding to her bank account. Lisa’s former co-stars could probably benefit from some counseling in that area. While they have been going to court, she has been buying new real estate. After the success of Tom Tom in West Hollywood, Lisa decided to go ahead and buy the whole bloody block. She could probably have her own zip code at this point. Now Lisa is sharing the latest plans in her continuing takeover of WeHo.
Wow Lauren, did things get too hot? It looks like Vanderpump Rules star, Lala Kent is finally in a good mood. Why else would she send words of glad tidings towards the man who essentially gave us all petty goals? Yes, Lala is talking about 50 Cent, again.
Someone must have gotten in trouble! Lala has given us songs. Lala has given us face. And Lala given us way too many details. It was those details that sparked a major row between the former (?) SUR hostess and Fofty. Fiancé Randall Emmett was dragged into it as well. He ultimately wound up in the hospital for
being a scaredy cat chest pains. The incident was resolved after Randall paid an outstanding debt to Fofty. All was well in the land until Lala started talking smack about Fofty to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. Now in an effort to keep Lala quiet put the whole thing to bed, Lala and Her Chins Man have some new words for the entrepreneur.
Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent has just achieved a major life milestone. She has been alcohol-free for a year straight. This is isn’t something that the viewers have seen on the show yet, but anyone who follows Lala in-between seasons is aware of her quest for sobriety.
On the Season 7 reunion, Lala told a story about drinking so much at Disney with her fiance Randall Emmett and his children that she didn’t remember any of the trip. Presumably, Lala’s sobriety will be a part of her Season 8 storyline
since she never shares much from her personal life.
eternally single former SURver on Vanderpump Rules has another project in the works! Since being fired from Lisa Vanderpump’s sexy, unique retirement home Kristen has managed to keep her spot on Pump Rules. She hasn’t done it by emoting words of wisdom. She hasn’t done it by her exceptional friendship skills. And she hasn’t don’t it by maintaining a compelling storyline. Basically Kristen has kept her job by acting like that one adult in your life you speak to like a toddler because they are always about 2 minutes away from a massive freak out. Also, this is reality television, so it works.
Kristen has dabbled in several money-making ventures since leaving SUR. She participated in selling
whine wine with Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder. Kristen also has her own line of clothes. But what she’s most known for is her lack of impulse control. What she calls “crazy”. Now Kristen is parlaying her crazy into the world of literature. That’s right folks, Kristen is writing a self-help book.
We are already a few weeks into the Below Deck season and are starting to get a read on the new crew. It appears that at least a few of the crew members will be stirring up high seas drama. Chef Kevin Dobson has already raised the ire of chief stew Kate Chastain by calling her out for poor service at the first crew meeting. No good can come of that! Plus, Kevin has already stirred up a full season of drama in just two episodes with his intestinal issues. Pity the poor charter guests who are now watching the show knowing that he prepared their food!
Crabby third stew Courtney Skippon whines more than any crew member I have ever seen. What’s so bad about being on a yacht making great money in beautiful Thailand? It’s not like you are serving time in a Russian prison, Courtney! You have to wonder what it would be like to be Captain Lee Rosbach and have to deal with some of these characters. What would happen if he could pick his own dream crew for Below Deck?
