Being in quarantine has afforded us time to get to know the walls of our homes very well. We can avoid complete and total boredom by binge watching our favorite television shows or reading a novel or two. Vanderpump Rules star Tom Sandoval has spent his down time frosting the tips of his hair and being five minutes away from going full Backstreet Boys retro. But Tom has also had an opportunity to cuddle up with some new material.
Tom happened to read a couple chapters from Kristen Doute’s “self-empowerment” effort. Before being fired from Pump Rules and dropped by her publishing company, Kristen had been touting her new book. Wanting women to “own their crazy“, Kristen wrote about her (former) fellow cast members and old boyfriends. One of those boyfriends was Tom and according to Sandy, some of Kristen’s memories might have been courtesy of artistic license.
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.
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.
Vanderpump Rules season nine may still be up in the air, but the OG cast members have been anything but quiet as of late. Lala Kent announced she and
her sugar daddy Randall Emmett are pregnant and expecting a baby girl. Luckily, Lala already has a supply of baby bottles on hand. Former cast member Stassi Schroeder also announced her pregnancy, and recently had her first interview post firing from Pump Rules for racist behavior. And Katie Maloney has been continuing her ongoing battle to clean up her mean girl image.
In contrast, the newbies on the show have been pretty quiet. Last season, VPR had about fifty new people join the cast, several of which also got let go for racist behavior. Namely Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens. Dayna Kathan, who was part of a love triangle with Max and Brett, has remained mum since the firings. However, she recently came forward to talk smack about someone else on the cast, and it just so happens to be everyone’s favorite punching bag on the show.
The next generation of Vanderpump Rules is upon us. Lala Kent is pregnant with her first child. Randall Emmett already has two daughters from his first marriage with You star Ambyr Childers.
The couple went big for their gender reveal earlier today. Thankfully, they did not do anything that involved smoke or fire. Instead their plans involved a party bus and a skydiver who had a colored parachute to indicate the baby’s gender.
Katie Maloney has been relatively quiet since the Vanderpump Rules universe exploded. That explosion was caused by the firing of Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute for racial profiling Faith Stowers and Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens’ racist social media posts. Since then, Katie has shared that she wants more diversity on Pump Rules and that she’d be open to doing a Tom Tom spinoff.
A spinoff isn’t a bad idea. It would predominately feature Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz– two of the best things about Pump Rules. Plus, we’d get drama from Katie and Ariana Madix’s up and down friendship. However, would that drama ever live up to the kind of drama inherent in the Witches of WeHo relationship complex? We’d have to see it to know for sure.
Vanderpump Rules star Katie Maloney is probably pretty happy she does not work at SUR anymore. Unfortunately, Lisa Vanderpump had to shut down her restaurant businesses because of the pandemic. And she even had to permanently close Villa Blanca. On top of that, Lisa was sued for allegedly not paying her employees at SUR. We know Katie was at least getting paid; how else could she afford that over-priced home in Valley Village?
Katie might not be working at SUR, but she is still a part of Pump Rules. And there is a very good chance this show might not come back because a good portion of the cast was fired for racist behavior. Those fired from the show included two of Katie’s best friends, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute. With those two out of the picture, this wouldn’t leave much for Katie to do on the show. So with the future of VPR uncertain, what plans does Katie have for moving forward?
