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.
It’s official, Vanderpump Rules fans– Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor are hitched! The couple made it official on June 29 and got married at the Kentucky Castle. Nearly every Pumps Rules star was at the wedding. Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval performed “best men” duties, while Lala’s fiancé, Randall Emmett, and SUR manager Peter Madrigal stood up for Jax. Katie Maloney attended Brittany as her matron of honor. Lala Kent, Ariana Madix, Scheana Marie, Stassi Schroeder and Kristin Doute served as members of the bridal party. Other Bravo guests included former Summer House stars Stephen McGee and Lauren Wirkus and Southern Charm star Shep Rose.
John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, are such fans of the show that they were invited to the wedding. Alas, the superstars didn’t attend. Can you imagine if they had been there, and John serenaded the couple at their reception?
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Cauchi. Cauchi is Jax Taylor’s actual last name in case anyone forgot. And, yes, Jax and Brittany Cartwright tied the knot during a weekend-long extravaganza in a Kentucky castle.
Every single Vanderpump Rules cast member was a part of the wedding. Well, except for James Kennedy, Raquel Leviss, and Billie Lee, who were not invited, obviously. Other than that, Kentucky was full of Bravolebrities.
LA Pride has become a staple on each Vanderpump Rules season. Every year, Lisa Vanderpump and the rest of the cast members go all out for Pride. Every single one of them gets in on the celebration.
And, for the most part, they all dress up in some festive outfits, especially the ladies. And Tom Sandoval, of course. He always comes through for a thematic event and Pride is no exception.
Since Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s joint bachelor/bachelorette party went so well, the Vanderpump Rules cast decided to apply the same concept in honor of Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s big day. In case you didn’t detect my sarcasm, or if you’re a new viewer, Tom and Katie’s party was a complete and total shit show.
Yes, in a fun way, but also in a cringe-worthy way, i.e. the arguments. It was rough to see Tom and Katie arguing just before they tied the knot. Who could ever forget Tom Sandoval dressed in drag yelling about how Schwartz is a “battered wife”? Let’s hope that Jax and Brittany’s joint party was not reminiscent of Tom and Katie’s trip.
Fans of both Summer House and Vanderpump Rules got a pleasant surprise when the Pump Rules crew stopped by to visit the Summer House cast for a few episodes. Once Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz, Stassi Schroeder, and Beau Clark arrived, they got to hear about all of the drama between Carl Radke and Paige DeSorbo.
You would think they would be talking about Carl and Scheana Marie instead. After all, with the VPR peeps visiting, wouldn’t they want to bring up drama about one of their own? Or better yet, toss out Beau or Katie and have Scheana come and visit instead. Even though it was a missed opportunity on the show, Carl recently discussed where he and Scheana currently stand.
Tom Schwartz is many things, one of the best men to the wedding of the year, defender of enemy number one and wife Katie Maloney, bar owner to one of the hottest new spots with pal Tom Sandoval, Mumu wearer, homeowner, and now he can add hero (depends on your definition of hero).
One smart and some might say ballsy fan sent the reality star a Venmo request for $50 for his/her commute to his bar Tom Tom.
Welcome to Summer House where double standards are alive and well. According to Kyle Cooke, Paige Desorbo has been leading Carl Radke on for 2 months. If Paige has been leading Carl on then what was he doing to Lauren Wirkus for 2 summers straight? The hypocrisy is hard for me to wrap my head around. Then I remember I’m watching 35ish-year-old men act like 21 year olds. At this point, the visiting Vanderpump Rules crew seem more mature than the Summer House. Not sure who that says more about.
Before the night comes to a close, Hannah Berner and Jordan Verroi have a private chat on the patio. Hannah has hit her boiling point and I don’t blame her. For the last 2 months, Jordan has been elusive and hard to understand. She called him out for the outlandish stories and lies he continues to spew. What I love most about this house is even after a disagreement, they can put it aside and rage through the night. Paige leaves to go to Justin’s boat – I’d like a visual of this guy please and thank you.
