Everyone seems to be getting married these days on Vanderpump Rules. Scheana Marie was the first to kick it off, in a crop top wedding dress no less. Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz may or may not be legally married, but are still going strong. And Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor just tied the knot. Soon to be walking down the aisle are Lala Kent and Randall Emmett, as well as Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark.
What the heck happened to this show? Everyone is off buying homes and settling down. No one has gotten pregnant yet, but there have been plenty of rumors. Especially for Katie, who has had to deal with pregnancy rumors long before she even got married. And those rumors don’t seem to be going away anytime soon.
The event that Bravo fans have been waiting for is upon us. The first-ever BravoCon is going down November 15-17 in New York City. This announcement came a couple of months ago, but no other information was released until late last week.
The tickets are not on sale, yet, but they will be next week and there are options for different schedules and budgets. Although, the event isn’t cheap, by any means. Will this be the most epic event of all time? Or the reality TV equivalent of the Fyre Festival? Let’s hope for the former.
The Carrie Bradshaw of Vanderpump Rules has found her Mr. Big! Stassi Schroeder has said yes to her boyfriend Beau Clark and the beautiful ring he gave her. We have watched Stassi make some questionable choices on the show, including dating Jax Taylor , but now we can all agree that she has found her prince among all the frogs she dated.
We have watched Stassi date, ugly cry, fight and say some really dumb things on the show as well as on her Instagram page but this year it seems like her fairy godmother aka Lisa Vanderpump has been carefully sprinkling pink fairy dust over her. From writing her first book to having her own national holiday to becoming besties with Ariana Madix, it seems like Stassi is growing up and making moves. Now we get to watch her get married! And, not to Jax!
Billie Lee has definitely lived up to the phrase “do not go gentle into that good night.” Recently, she dropped the bombshell she quit Vanderpump Rules to focus on an anti-bullying campaign, and that she was bullied on the show. Welcome to the club Billie! You are now members with Scheana Marie, Lala Kent, James Kennedy, Raquel Leviss, Tom Schwartz…
Then Billie announced the news that she is ready to have a baby. She’s in a good head space, and even made up with Lala, who was there to support her during some dark times she had while on the show. And it’s pretty amazing they made up considering they were at each others throats during brunch and at Scheana’s housewarming party. Billie still has more to talk about, and this time it’s about the cast.
Billie Lee was the first trans cast member on Vanderpump Rules. And, honestly, despite the hours I have spend watching, reading about, and writing about Vanderpump Rules, that’s about all I know about her. The past couple of seasons, she was just kind of… there. And she was only “there” sometimes. She definitely wasn’t “there” for Katie Maloney-Schwartz’s Girls Night Out Party or Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding!
And she won’t be “there” for anything anymore, because she
was fired for being super boring quit to focus on her anti-bullying campaign. Now that Billie has quit the show, she seems to be hitting all the media outlets. I guess she’s trying to get publicity for her “new projects?” Girl, make that 15 minutes last as long as you can!
These are the best days of our lives! Vanderpump Rules stars Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix have been living the dream. The couple recently purchased a home for a modest $2 million, showing us that reality TV bartending pays off! We also watched last season as Tom became a junior partner with Tom Schwartz in Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd’s bar TomTom. The Toms, of course, arrived in style to the opening in a his and his motorcycle/sidecar. And we watched again as Tom and Ariana defended each other with love and ease against outside forces.
Needless to say, this couple is goals. Sure, they have their differences, but a lot of them aren’t really anyone’s business. Tom and Ariana always seem to be able to communicate through them. Pump Rules fans know that one such issue was that Ariana wanted to publish a cocktail book on her own – so she could have something for herself. (Preach!) The couple has since compromised on the issue, and now that cocktail book has a release date!
When Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark announced their engagement last week, I noticed two things. First, that ring is gigantic. Way to go, Beau. Second, Kristen Doute was MIA. She didn’t comment on any of the Instagram posts. She didn’t even click “like” until days later. Yes, I was actively checking. And, yes, I’m very ashamed of that. Let’s move on.
After the proposal, their families and Vanderpump Rules cast members gathered at Lisa Vanderpump’s house for a celebration. Kristen was MIA. Again. Is she still banned from Villa Rosa? Well, she probably is, but there’s more to her absence than that. Or at least that’s what Stassi’s mom Dayna Schroeder has hinted at.
Billie Lee has had quite the busy summer. Last month she was off celebrating Pride with Andy Cohen and the Bravo gang in New York City. Which just happened to be at the same time as Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s
made for TV wedding. I know I’d choose attending Pride over that Disney princess themed farce.
Shortly after that, she mentioned she cut down her role on the show to focus on her activism in the trans community. Then, Billie shared the news that she decided to quit Vanderpump Rules to focus on an anti-bullying campaign. I’m sure her experiences with Katie Maloney, Stassi Schroeder, and Kristen Doute made her a master on the subject matter. And now Billie has even more news to share.
