Since two thirds of the Witches of WeHo have been fired from Vanderpump Rules, things have been changing pretty fast for the whole cast. Stassi Schroeder announced she was pregnant at the apex of the VPR shake-up and married Beau Clark. Following soon after, Lala Kent announced that her and Randall Emmett are also expecting, and so are Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor. Most recently, in October, Scheana Shay announced she was pregnant, after miscarrying earlier this year.
Stassi, Lala, Scheana, and Brittany each had gender reveals. Everyone aside from Brittany and Jax are expecting baby girls. Fast forward to season 45 of Pump Rules where Jason Cauchi Jr. is tattooing Stassi’s daughter’s name on his ass. Aside from Kristen Doute and Ariana Madix, the only veteran cast member not pregnant is Katie Maloney.
We are only one episode into Real Housewives of Salt Lake City and I am already way more invested than I ever expected to be. If you haven’t started watching yet, please do so immediately (well, after you’re done reading this article).
Whoever did the casting for this show deserves a raise. There is no filler in this cast. Every single one of them has a good storyline both within the group and on her own. I am already so interested and beyond ready for more.
Did y’all watch the premiere of Real Housewives of Salt Lake City? I don’t mean to get ahead of myself but is this a possible new favorite franchise? It had it all! The new cast was interesting and fresh. They all have different backgrounds and stories. Hell, they even kicked off the first episode with a fight over someone smelling like a hospital. Truly. What a gem.
One of the cast members that immediately stood out was Whitney Rose. Her deal is that her and her much older husband got kicked out of the Mormon Church for having an affair when they were both married. Juicy. I’m actually a little surprised Whitney was so forthcoming about the whole thing. But it turns out, she has a little help navigating her new life in front of the Bravo cameras.
There was a large voter turnout for the 2020 presidential election and that wasn’t a coincidence. People, both famous and not, were very vocal about the importance of voting and encouraging others to partake in the election.
That should all be a good thing, but some people don’t seem to feel that way. Vanderpump Rules cast member Ariana Madix had been encouraging people to vote, sending out reminders for election deadlines, and sharing other pertinent information throughout 2020. Apparently, that turned off a few thousand people because they decided to click “unfollow” on Ariana’s Instagram page.
This summer, Scheana Shay revealed that she went through a miscarriage. This was around the time that the news broke that Stassi Schroeder is pregnant. Soon after, Lala Kent and Brittany Cartwright shared their pregnancy announcements, which wasn’t surprising since they made an actual pregnancy pact with Katie Maloney.
After experiencing her miscarriage, Scheana announced that she and her boyfriend Brock Davies are expecting their first child together. He has a son and daughter from a previous marriage who live in Australia.
The Vanderpump Rules cast has grown up a lot. Not in terms of maturity or developing a social conscious. They’ve matured in the sense that they can buy two-million-dollar houses in Valley Village and fulfill a pregnancy pact, just like that Lifetime movie. That pact included Lala Kent, fired bigot Stassi Schroeder, and Brittany Cartwright. Outside of that pact is Scheana Shay, who is also pregnant! This is great news considering she suffered a miscarriage earlier this year.
During that awful time in Scheana’s life, Stassi was very supportive, along with Ariana Madix and Brittany. Now, for inexplicable reasons, Scheana and Stassi are on the outs again, and so are Scheana and Lala. Apparently, Stassi didn’t like Scheana sharing the one good story about Stassi this year that Stassi was supportive of her in the aftermath of her miscarriage. Now that Scheana has good news again, she’s sharing who in the cast has reached out with congratulations.
The Vanderpump Rules off-season has been full of drama. Unfortunately, for the cast members who didn’t get fired, it’s unclear when/if the show will come back. Thanks to the pandemic and the false narrative that this show is actually about the restaurants when most of them actually pretend to work there, the cast members are just sitting ducks, hoping to get the green light, filling up their free time with sponsored Instagram content (and pregnancies, for some of them anyway).
So, what does Andy Cohen think about the show carrying on without Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute?
Some of the cast members of Vanderpump Rules that were not fired for being racist have a lot to celebrate these days. Scheana Shay is newly pregnant. Her boyfriend might have a name like a criminal doctor on All My Children, but she seems happy and we certainly wish her the best. Lala Kent’s rags to riches story also continues to improve. Thankfully Katie Maloney and Ariana Madix have not fallen victim to breeding
publicity stunts because it’s on-trend at the moment.
Once hailed as the resident whore (because Katie calls it like she sees it) of SUR, now Lala is a mom-to-be. Currently still with her fiancé, Randall Emmett, hopefully Rand will pay all of his bills before the little bundle of joy arrives. These days Lala is observing another milestone in her life. Sadly, she has not repaired her relationship with Schee Shoo, but she has stayed on the wagon.
