Ariana Madix

Lala Kent Randall Emmett

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.

Vanderpump-Rules-Katie-Maloney

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.

Kristen says she’s not a saint and has a lot to learn after calling the cops on Faith Stowers

It was only two months ago that we were reading stories about Stassi Schroeder saying she was tired of being called a “mean girl”. Back then, it was towards Kristen Doute. It feels like a lifetime ago. In those days, Kristen’s biggest concern was the fact that Vanderpump Rules wasn’t showing her friendship with Ariana Madix. Now fast forward. Both Stassi and Kristen have been fired after racist actions towards former cast-mate Faith Stowers. Seriously. It’s only been two months since this whirlwind. Time flies when you’re holding people accountable!

Of note is the fact that Faith has decided to start over with former (current? who cares?) hostess Lala Kent. These two were fast friends originally. If you missed it, Kristen reached out the Faith as well. At that time Faith declined to speak with her. Sort of sad, since even Scheana Marie, says Kristen has never been one of the mean girls. Anyways. While Stassi continues to focus attention back on her boring basic bitch cookie-cutter life, Kristen is still trying to share her feelings and reflections on the entire situation.

Stassi Schroeder & Katie Maloney Are Friends With Kristen Doute Again

There has been a lot happening in the Vanderpump Rules universe. First off, Bravo has finally been reacting to the Black Lives Matter movement. On June 9, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired from the show for racist behavior. Newbie Pump Rules stars Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens were also given pink slips when racially insensitive tweets from the past came back to bite them.

In 2018, Vanderpump Rules alum Faith Stowers slept with Jax Taylor. As if that wasn’t punishment enough, Kristen and Stassi told the police that Faith was stealing watches and drugging men. Faith, of course, was innocent. Stassi and Kristen? Not at all.

Vanderpump Rules Star James Kennedy Celebrates 1 Year Of Sobriety; Says “I’m So Grateful For Everything Now”

Vanderpump Rules viewers have watched James Kennedy struggle with his sobriety and in his relationships with his co-stars and friends. The beginning of Season 8 of Pump Rules was tough to watch because of the way James was treating his ride-or-die chick, Raquel Leviss.

He sent Raquel nasty text messages, calling her a “slut” and a “whore” because she nearly missed his DJ appearance at TomTom during Pride. James insisted he was sober during the gig, but that wasn’t true. Not cool, James. Not cool.

Tom Sandoval

I think we can all use a little good news right now. Especially(?) when it comes to Vanderpump Rules. At this point, I think we all know about the Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute firings. Don’t forget about fans begging for Jax Taylor to get fired too! Or his racist comments towards 90 Day Fiance cast member Jay Smith. Truthfully, I think the show has been spared by the season ending when it did. The part 3 reunion episode did this freak show zero favors, if I do say so myself.

In this shit storm of a cast, there are still a few shining lights. Scheana Shay, for one, came out unscathed. Despite her tragic miscarriage, I still say Scheana is doing life right. She remains coupled with hottie and ever-supportive Brock Davies who I hope to see more of next season. Assuming the VPR OG is back on our screen. And while there’s a supposed friendship between Kristen and Ariana Madix, I think Tom Sandoval and Ariana came out okay too. Just in time for Tom’s new makeup launch! Yes, you read that correctly! Male make up!

Stassi Schroeder Scheana Shay

At one point, very recently, two Vanderpump Rules OG cast members were pregnant, Stassi Schroeder and Scheana Shay. Stassi revealed that she and Beau Clark are expecting a baby girl, who’s due in January 2021. Unfortunately, Scheana just revealed that she lost her baby six weeks into her pregnancy.

Scheana emphasized that she’s so happy for Stassi in addition to sharing that Stassi has been very supportive while Scheana struggles to cope with her loss.

Vanderpump Rules Andy Cohen Jax Taylor

Honestly what is left to say about Vanderpump Rules? Is there any point in discussing this? Can I bow out now with just a sayonara to the OG’s. We know that at least a 1/3 of the cast won’t return. Bravo hasn’t announced it yet, but I doubt we’ll see Lala Kent, Brittany Cartwright, or Jax Taylor next season. Well, not if they expect me to watch anyway. And we alllll know Bravo is catering things to my specific wants!

With sponsors and D-list celebrities cutting ties with Jax in response to his not-so-secret Twitter behavior, it’s only a matter of time. Like Ariana Madix pointed out during the season, Brittany is collateral damage.

But truly, after Jax got on national television, smugly insulted his boss and tried to call Andy Cohen out, I think it’s time for ‘his show’ to end. Jax’s ego is out of fucking control! He’s gross, slimy, a liar, a racist, a homophobe, and emotionally abusive to his wife. He’s also emotionally abusive to his castmates. Stassi Schroeder, who really has no room to talk, said at this point everyone is afraid to confront Jax because he’s so vicious.
