Even though Scheana Marie never officially “dated” Adam Spott, she did beg him to tell her he loved her during the last Vanderpump Rules finale. Then she got drunk and cried with Brittany Cartwright’s Mamaw.
She claimed that they were just “best friends” many times over. She also said that he was the first guy she didn’t have to fake orgasms with. Sorry, Mike Shay and Rob Valletta. Now, she’s so done with Adam. Not that they ever officially dated.
Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Marie may be technically single, but she always seems to return to a few favorite guys. Last season, Pump Rules fans watched Scheana “date” Adam Spott. Scheana Marie went out with, and mad out with, Bachelorette and Bachelor In Paradise star Robby Hayes. Robby, who was the runner-up on JoJo Fletcher’s season, was also friends with Adam. Because of course, he was!
Her attempt to make Adam jealous backfired, but Scheana Marie and Robby continued their
romance friendship. In May, they even vacationed in Hawaii together, and you know that Scheana Marie posted all about it on social media.
There are very few things in this life that I am 100% certain about. I am 100% certain that if I am running late, there will be traffic. I am 100% certain that when I’m “not drinking tonight,” I will have consumed 10 tequila shots by 9 pm. I am also 100% certain that Scheana Marie involves herself in very public, and messy, romantic entanglements for dramatic purposes.
First, there was poor Mike Shay. Scheana and Mike had a marriage that was over before it really even begun. But the blessed union put her front and center on Vanderpump Rules for the majority of that season, and that’s all that really matters. I wonder if Scheana is bitter about the fact that Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor’s wedding was an over-the-top extravaganza paid for by sponsored Instagram posts, and all Scheana got was a crop-top wedding dress and a bunch of bedazzled silk roses? After her divorce from Mike, she moved on to Rob Valletta, whose name she mentioned at every. Possible. Opportunity. Then, last season, she badgered poor Adam Spott into “dating” her, and immediately tried to make him jealous by making out with Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise-alum, Adam’s friend, Robby Hayes.
Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer’s storyline has been very similar the past couple of seasons. Mainly her desire to have a family and a willing partner to join her. Her tagline this year perfectly summed it up, “Game, set, now I need a match.” Plus, who knew she was also a good tennis player?
Tinsley thought she had found her perfect match when she started dating Carole Radziwill’s friend Scott Kluth. But it didn’t take long to see that the relationship was one sided. Scott was always MIA. When he did show up, Tinsley embarrassed herself by acting like a fan girl. Thankfully, because of the tick tock of Tinsley’s ticking clock (say that three times fast), Tinsley realized it’s time to move on.
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.
Whew – we have crossed the finish line with season 7 of Vanderpump Rules and I am here to report that this reunion did not need to be 3 parts. There – recap done!
OK, kidding. I actually felt there were some illuminating moments. Like the glimpse of Katie Maloney‘s hubris. Wowee-wow-WOW. Katie literally always sees herself as the victim. She blames James Kennedy for the internet hating her but the internet rightfully hated Katie long before her antics this season! As Tom 1 never really got a chance to say courtesy of James’ interrupitis – a germ passed from Kristen Doute – Katie has been a rancid bottle of ranch dressing since season 1. Katie’s OWN putrid behavior is the reason the Twitterverse rails on her – it has nothing to do with James or her weight (or her husband’s manhood – how is that not also body shaming?). Let’s just say Katie is giving marriage, ranch dressing, the internet, and humanity a bad name. Oh, and also clothing.
There are certain events that we can expect from every Vanderpump Rules season. We get Gay Pride, a Mexico trip, and Stassi Schroeder’s birthday. There’s also World Dog Day, which Lisa Vanderpump hosted and some of the Pump Rules cast attended.
However, as expected, zero Real Housewives of Beverly Hills were in attendance. Not even flip-flopper Camille Grammer or one and done Joyce Giraud, the sole RHOBH cast member Lisa seems to be close with. Thankfully, Lisa’s husband Ken Todd and some Vanderpump Rules were there to support. However, there were still some notable names missing.
I’m having a visceral reaction to part 2 of the Vanderpump Rules reunion. It’s like Lord Of The Flies. James Kennedy is the pig they’re chasing across the island of the doomed until somebody, (probably Tom 2 if we’re being honest) winds up dismembered. Remember when this show was so fun?!
What I’ve come to realize is that these people – chiefly Katie Maloney, Jax Taylor, and Kristen Doute – live in an echo chamber of their own delusions. They can’t learn from experiences because they’ve blocked all the dissenting voices. Instead, they are deafened by the vortex of praise they offer each other. James isn’t even allowed to speak without Kristen cutting him off and screaming him down with some accusation or insult. Andy Cohen wonders why James so angry. Lisa Vanderpump decides it’s because James had a drink at lunch. Or maybe it’s as James said: so many people yelling at him constantly that he can’t breathe.
