Vanderpump Rules star Lisa Vanderpump has had a rough go of it this year. Back in March, the restaurant industry suffered from massive shut downs due to the pandemic. Many restaurants decided to stay open for take out during that time, but Lisa had opted to keep SUR, Pump, TomTom, and Villa Blanca closed instead. Those who had cravings for fried goat cheese balls or Pumptini’s would have to wait. Unfortunately, Lisa ended up having to close down Villa Blanca for good.
Gradually, restrictions were lifted and restaurants were allowed to have outdoor dining. The friend goat cheese balls were being served once again as SUR reopened, and Lisa was back in action. Cast members Charli Burnett, Dayna Kathan, and Danica Dow also returned. Shortly after SUR reopened, Pump finally opened their doors as well. Things were back on the up and up for Lisa. However, with covid cases increasing, new lockdowns have been implemented in Los Angeles County. Will Lisa decide to shut down her restaurants once again?
Vanderpump Rules didn’t make Faith Stowers famous, but honey she tried. Faith was never exactly a regular, but she did kind of swing on Lala Kent’s coattails. Unfortunately for the former waitress, it was swinging from Jax Taylor’s peen that originally got her name in the media. Hollywood has tales of the casting couch, but SUR has tales about the casting booth.
While Faith never made it #bigbybravo, she did manage to almost take down the entire show. Faith found herself the victim of a false-police report filed by geniuses Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute. As a result, Stassi and Kristen saw their 15 minutes of fame and their paychecks fly out the door. Now Faith is plotting the ultimate revenge, the final straw, the ace in the hole… Pump Rules is clinging to life thanks to major cast changes and the pandemic. The family has been called in to pay their respects, while Faith waits in the wings with her back-up plan.
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.
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.
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.
This summer, Scheana Shay opened up about the miscarriage she experienced with Brock Davies. She shared that pregnant Stassi Schroeder was super supportive during that time, which apparently bothered Stassi even though it’s the only genuinely positive publicity she’s shared in a while. Now, Stassi and Scheana aren’t friends… again.
Scheana and Lala Kent publicly feuded when Scheana wasn’t invited to Lala and Randall Emmett’s gender reveal event. Then, Scheana crossed paths with Stassi and Lala at Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor’s gender reveal, which had to be awkward.
As if reality TV stars looking for attention via a gender reveal wasn’t annoying enough, Vanderpump Rules stars Scheana Shay and Lala Kent got into a spat one. Scheana said she was upset Lala excluded her from a gender reveal and slammed her for not being there for her during her miscarriage.
Lala called out Scheana’s boyfriend Brock Davies, slammed her for having a new best friend every week, said Scheana makes everything about her (pot, meet kettle), and roasted Scheana for bringing up her hookup with John Mayer “100 years later” This all played out on social media and in podcast episodes, but it was honestly much more entertaining than the most recent Vanderpump Rules season. If only someone was filming this.
Over the summer, Vanderpump Rules cast member Brittany Cartwright’s mom Sherri Cartwright was in the ICU this summer following complications from a bladder surgery.
Unfortunately, Sherri is in the hospital once again.
