I have to admit that I was skeptical of the Vanderpump Rules/ Summer House crossover when the Wirkus Twins made a not-so-subtle visit to go have lunch with Stassi Schroeder at SUR. It felt way too forced to me, but that episode with Kyle Cooke and Stassi’s turtleneck bathing suit in the hot tub got me hooked. And ever since I’ve been living for Stephen McGee’s commentary on all the Summer House antics. Needless to say, I was pumped to listen to Stassi interviewing Stephen on her podcast.
In my dream world, Bravo would air a mini series with the Vanderpump Rules cast and the (relevant) Summer House cast members going on vacation together, but for now, I am more than satisfied with Stassi and Stephen’s talk about the reunion episodes, pot stirring, and the relationships on both shows.
Even though I hate it when a season of Vanderpump Rules comes to a close, I absolutely love it when the cast gathers to rehash everything that went down during the reunion episodes. The cast just taped this year’s reunion last Friday, but no previews have surfaced – yet. Still, there is actually something that might be even more shocking than the reunion itself and that’s what the cast did after. At least, reunion host Andy Cohen was pretty surprised by the revelation.
I would like to say that I stopped trying to understand the cast dynamics a long time ago, but I am still puzzled by how these people are best friends and rivals at the same time. They love each other and hate on each other equally and they are just way too odd to figure out. Still, I am still puzzled by their behavior antics ninety nine percent of the time.
I still have no idea if Bethenny Frankel actually ever dated Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet, but the rumored former flames did hang out when Bethenny made a visit to the Modern Family set. Both of them posted the same photo to mark the occasion.
I don’t know if the visit was social or if Bethenny has been bitten by the acting bug and will be making a cameo appearance on a future episode.
Without even seeing one preview for the Vanderpump Rules reunion, I can already get a feel for where they’ll be going with the arguments questions whenever it airs and that’s because the reunion seating chart was posted on the Bravo website. Sure, everyone does have to sit somewhere, but you can really tell which story lines are being prioritized and who is on which side based on the seating chart.
One thing that stands out to me is that LaLa Kent doesn’t have a spot on the chart, but that wasn’t super surprising since she just peaced out from the show without saying a word and has been shitting on the show and its cast ever since. However, pics of her from Scheana Marie Shay’s Snapchat posts show she was present- so I guess that was a surprise to Andy Cohen as well?
As a person who’s way too into Vanderpump Rules, I wish the episodes would speed up and be more in line with what the cast is up to in real time. Last week, we saw Scheana Marie and Mike Shay celebrate their two year wedding anniversary and it felt strange to watch since they are not together anymore. There’s still no sign of a breakup this season, so it feels like we are really behind. Especially since Scheana has been talking about her secret boyfriend in interviews and on social media.
If you follow her on Snap you have probably seen a male limb in the corner of her stories and wondered who she was dating. If you watch Scheana’s recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, you might even remember that Andy Cohen remarked that he met Scheana’s man before the show and that he was tall. Well now, the mystery is solved. Scheana’s mystery man has been revealed.
Andy shared a photo of Lisa Rinna‘s naked selfie. Lisa says she has to admit that Rinna looked great. “That looks pretty good, I have to say. I can be a bitch sometimes but I can’t be about that, she looks good!” But LVP did give her some crap about putting it up and taking it down.
Last night’s guests on Watch What Happens Live were The Goldbergs star Wendi McLendon-Covey and Vanderpump Rules cast member Kristen Doute. They covered everything from whether Kristen will be invited to Ariana and Tom‘s wedding to why she inserts herself in everyone’s business.
Andy Cohen plays a clip of Tom Sandoval crying on last night’s episode and says that it always makes him cry to see Tom cry. Kristen asks, “Because you are laughing so hard?”
