There isn’t much that can shock viewers of Vanderpump Rules. We’ve become jaded by infidelity, heavy partying, and glassy-eyed filming. Fans have watched relationships fail and flourish again. We have also seen some weddings.
We were treated to the charming, wooded ceremony between Tom Schwartz and
his captor Katie Maloney. Pump Rules gave us a Northern California spectacle of forest whimsy. As Tom Sandoval cried into a dog, Katie and Tom 2 traded vows and marriage rings. Since then, the two have shared endless good times and recently purchased a house. We must mention the United States’ own version of the royal wedding. Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright held court in Kentucky, as they promised to be in each other’s lives for the next two years forever. Katie served as Brittany’s Matron of Honor, a title given to the bride’s married friend in a wedding party. But hang on folks! We are now finding out Katie might not be a Matron after all. Or a wife.
Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright have come a long way. The couple just tied the knot in Kentucky. The wedding happened in spite of a host of obstacles (some self-imposed by Jax himself), including the passing of Jax’s father. They even sweetly saved a seat for Jax’s dad at the ceremony.
Determined to prove they have weathered the worst of their collective past, the couple went all out for the big day. Brittany’s ring was modeled after Princess Diana and Meghan Markle’s rings. They also married in a castle modeled after Windsor Castle. Every person they ever met (except Billie Lee) was invited to the nuptials, including John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. Even though the couple has only been married a few weeks, they have been vocal about having baby fever since before the big day.
Looks like we’ll be seeing even less of Billie Lee next season on Vanderpump Rules!
The SUR hostess revealed her role on the Lisa Vanderpump-led spinoff will be smaller during the upcoming eighth season. She’s been featured in a recurring capacity the last two years as the show’s lone trans cast member.
As we all know, Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor got hitched last weekend in a Kentucky castle. The castle in which the wedding was held is reminiscent of Windsor Castle. You know, except for the storied history and actual royalty. Kentucky is the new London, y’all.
Brittany wore a tear-away gown. Seriously, it had a bunch of layers and she could peel them off at various points during the festivities. So she basically dressed like a stripper. For. Her. Wedding. For the actual ceremony, the dress had a long train. The train come off for a shorter dress, I’m guessing for the dancing portion of the evening, and the sleeves came off to reveal a strapless number. While the dress was a strange choice, she looked stunning in all versions of it.
The romance between Lala Kent and Randall Emmett is a love story for the ages. The couple met while Lala was hostessing at SUR, and thus began
an affair a courtship filled with baby bottles passion and intrigue. Lala was first reluctant to share her relationship on Vanderpump Rules because of his wife, in an effort to keep her sugar daddy new love private. But when Lala showed up with Range Rovers and high-dollar bags, her cast-mates became curious. Never referring to Randall by name, she would call him, “my man”, to maintain his anonymity.
Slowly but surely, details on Randall began to show up on the Pump Rules radar. Once Randall’s
adultery divorce was final, Lala became more liberal with information regarding her paramour. Randall was a rich Hollywood producer! He has a private jet! Randall owes a lot of money gives expensive gifts! Thanks to his PJ, people who used to slut-shame Lala now want to be her friend. It isn’t all wheels up and YSL bags for this new age Romeo and Juliet. Lala and Randall have suffered trying times on their road to lifelong togetherness. And because we live in an age where everyone loves an audience, it went down quite publicly.
One might say Kristen Doute is unlucky in love. During her tenure on Vanderpump Rules, viewers watched Kristen cheat on long-term boyfriend, Tom Sandoval. She moved on with James Kennedy.After her saga with James ended, she briefly shagged Aleks Taldykin from Below Deck. When Kristen finally met Brian Carter on a dating app, love blossomed and the two began their journey of romance.
Not all relationships are meant to last. Especially in Kristen’s case. As she watched her friends get married and move into multi-million dollar homes, her love affair with Carter began to crumble. Relationship experts Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney advised Kristen to leave Carter because he was basically living off of Kristen’s paycheck. Viewers had hoped Kristen found her happily ever after, but it wasn’t to be. Now there is new evidence Kristen and Carter
haven’t stopped banging have reignited the flames of desire, making the dating world a safer place to be once again.
Season 7 of Vanderpump Rules was a tough one for Billie Lee. Like James Kennedy, she was excluded from most events. The biggest snub for Billie last season was being excluded from “Girls Night In” at SUR because Katie Maloney is awful forgot. Lala Kent, who was grieving the loss of her father, also shouted in Billie’s face most of the season. Needless to say, Billie was a bit adrift last season on Pump Rules.
Thankfully things seem to be turning around for her and Lala. She’s also been busy celebrating Pride month across the country, with everyone from Bravo. In spite of the tide turning, she was left off the guest list for the most important filming event of Season 8. Billie was not present at Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding last week. The good news is, she couldn’t care less!
Vanderpump Rules fans were grateful to Shep Rose for live documenting Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding on social media. His live videos and photos were a gift for the fans. But what did he get the couple for a wedding gift?
What do you get for a couple
with a heavily sponsored wedding who has everything? He could have given them caftans with photos of their dogs from Patricia Altschul’s line. Shep could have had Craig Conover sew a wedding edition pillow. Maybe Austen Kroll could have produced enough beer for a six pack. Eh, probably not. Even with all of those Southern Charm-themed options Shep went with nothing. He did not give them anything for their wedding.
