For the past few seasons, it’s been tough for Vanderpump Rules viewers to sympathize with Katie Maloney. However, on tonight’s episode, her own husband, Tom Schwartz, really crosses a line. He talks down to her and humiliates her in front of the entire cast. And, oh yeah, the Vanderpump Rules viewers. Usually, the fans side with Schwartz just because he normally has such a lovable disposition. But, it will be very interesting to see how the Pump Rules fans feel after tonight’s episode. #TeamKatie on this one. This one time.
In other news, the cast gets together to celebrate Jax Taylor’s 40th birthday. Yeah, I know that we celebrate his birthday during every season of this show, but we also focused on his wedding for the first half of this current season. Can we get a break from the Jax-centered celebrations? Please. There are 13,000 other cast members on this show.
This isn’t surprising news, by any means, but the Vanderpump Rules Season 8 reunion taping has been postponed. Officially. Nevertheless, writing has been on the while for a while, given the current coronavirus pandemic.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion had already been postponed. Below Deck stopped filming Season 8 early. Many TV shows have been put on hold, so, again, this wasn’t a “shock.” But, now it’s official, according to Pump Rules OG Stassi Schroeder.
There’s no question that the Coronavirus pandemic has changed the way we all live our lives. There are first responders, delivery truck drivers, and grocery store workers putting themselves at risk every single day. Many people are quarantined at home, trying to find a new normal in a tough situation.
In one way or another, we are all going through it. And cheesiness aside, some people have learned lessons from this experience. One of those people is Jax Taylor, believe it or not. Not only that, but the Vanderpump Rules star also has a theory on why God created Coronavirus. Yep, the artist formerly known as Jason Cauchi is getting philosophical on us, with a grammatically flawed monologue.
The drama between Vanderpump Rules’ Witches of WeHo has felt longer than Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding. There were rumblings before the new season started that Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder were on the outs with Kristen Doute, but no one knew why. What could have been so upsetting that Stassi didn’t invite Kristen to her engagement party to Beau Clark?
Unless there is a new reveal later this season, the answer seems to be Kristen’s relationship with Brian Carter. The emotional toll of hearing about how he’s no good, yet Kristen continuing to stay with him, was enough for Stassi and Katie to say buh-bye. But Kristen is not going quietly. She recently accused Stassi of having nothing going on and dissed her podcast. Then, on last week’s episode, she went after Katie.
Now that the royal wedding season is officially over on Vanderpump Rules, we can get back to what the cast does best–gossip, drink and throw shade at fellow co-stars. Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s drawn-out Ver-Sails extravaganza made me want to decline any future wedding RSVP’s.
Love is still in the air on Vanderpump Rules with the romantic cemetery proposal of Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark later in the season. At least they didn’t have to worry about overzealous fans interrupting their romantic moment! Long-time engaged couple Lala Kent and Randall Emmett had originally planned their wedding for next month, but world events have changed that plan. The coronavirus has upended people’s lives and Lala and Randall are no exception.
Aside from Scheana Marie’s love triangles and Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval’s managerial time at TomTom, most of the Vanderpump Rules cast members have nothing to do with the millions of new people who randomly joined the cast. It honestly feels like we are watching two different shows at the same time.
Lala Kent joined the show in Season 4, so she knows what it’s like to be on the outside of the Pump Rules crew, but she has no sympathy for these new people. Of course, no one is shocked by that, but she does recognize that the show is so disjointed, which many viewers feel these days.
This whole Kristen Doute vs. Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder feud has been so vague and confusing. During last night’s episode of Vanderpump Rules, Katie claimed that Kristen took quotes from Pinterest for her t-shirt line.
And instead of clapping back at Katie, the person who made that remark, Kristen went in on Stassi’s career and current projects. And, the feud escalated to a full-on Twitter beef.
I don’t know about you, but Lala Kent had me cringing during last night’s episode of Vanderpump Rules. She got together with Raquel Leviss for a peacemaking coffee sesh, which apparently did work, for a day, anyway.
From the footage we were shown, it was tough to understand why Raquel felt Lala’s “apology” was so meaningful. Raquel explained that she was upset that Lala called her “dumb” last season. And in response, Lala told Raquel, “My time is very precious and I wouldn’t waste it on someone who I felt was a true idiot.” How… heartwarming. Then, we saw Raquel tell Lala, “That means so much to me, Lala.” What? In what universe could that sentiment ever mean “so much” to someone. Clearly, some of the talk was edited out for time. Or to be shady, you be the judge. Regardless, I think most of us are #TeamRaquel on this one.
