Katie Maloney & Stassi Schroeder - Vanderpump Rules

It has felt like ages since Lisa Vanderpump and her new pink kitchen graced the screen on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Once Lisa stopped filming with the mean girls puppygate girl gang, viewers were left wondering if she was going to attend the reunion. To many fans dismay, Lisa decided to say “Cheerio” to not only the reunion but the show as well. 

Even though Lisa hasn’t been on RHOBH for most of the season, the cast can’t stop talking about her. One minute they wish she was there, ok only Kyle Richards said that, and then next minute they trash her. Erika Girardi said she was a “dark cloud” over the group and is happy Lisa is gone. And they aren’t the only ones with an opinion about Lisa leaving either. 

James Kennedy

Could James Kennedy be ready to put a ring on it? He sure thinks so. Even with all of the cheating allegations and general instability in his life, he is convinced that he and Raquel Leviss will be the next Vanderpump Rules couple to walk down the aisle.

And why not? This was a great storyline move for Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright, who are getting married next week, which will be filmed for Season 8, of course. Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz had a whole season devoted to their wedding planning… which wasn’t the best look for them. Will James and Raquel be the next Vanderpump Rules duo to get engaged for a storyline? And who can forget when Scheana Marie got married in that crop top wedding dress?

Tom Sandoval And Ariana Madix Talk About Lisa Vanderpump’s Departure From Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

The news of Lisa Vanderpump’s departure from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has rocked the Bravo universe. So much so that everyone and their mother, (ahem Tamra Judge) has an opinion on the queen of diamonds and rosé leaving the show. An OG leaving a series is big news. Plus, if you’re on one of her shows, you’ll have no choice but to answer questions about it.

LVP might be leaving RHOBH, but she certainly isn’t done with Bravo. After all, the successful restauranteur/executive producer is the genius who gave us Vanderpump Rules. Give her an Emmy already! Fans aren’t the only people who appreciate LVP’s savvy for good TV. SUR-vers, Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix are forever indebted to the woman with the heavy crown.

Vanderpump Rules Pride

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.

Brittany Cartwright Bachelorette Party Vanderpump Rules

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.

Billie Lee

Billie Lee came onto the scene as the first, and so far only, transgender member of the Vanderpump Rules gang. The past season was wrought with being drunk constant fighting and everyone forming teams. Billie found herself on the wrong side of Lala Kent, but she wasn’t alone. She also found herself going up against the Witches of WeHo, who generally operate on the “kick ’em while they’re down” policy.

But sometimes it can be more than your average alcoholic fighting. Viewers watched as drama stemmed from loss and heartache, and many craft cocktails. Billie found herself engaged in several arguments that took her back to a very dark place. Fortunately she found help through an unlikely source, and proves that maybe people do grow up after all.

Lisa Vanderpump & John Sessa

John Sessa doesn’t like two things. People slamming Lisa Vanderpump and buttoning his shirt. Being the executive officer of Vanderpump Dogs explains his ire when someone goes up against the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star, but his chest exposure remains a mystery. Obviously, John had a vested interest in the disgrace behind #puppygate, because dog rescue is his life’s mission. He has not only been Lisa’s right hand man in the fight for animal rights, he has been her biggest supporter since the drama unfolded.

Many people think we’ve heard too much from John lately. But let’s face it, there aren’t a lot of people in LVP’s corner. Because the series of events focused on dog rescue, of course he would be involved. John continues to defend his meal ticket Lisa V., and maintain her innocence against the dreaded Puppygate Girl Gang.

Scheana Marie Says James Kennedy Belongs On Vanderpump Rules

The latest Vanderpump Rules reunion turned into the Everyone Hates James Kennedy three-part special. Almost the entire cast of the show had it out for him. You would think he had kidnapped all of their firstborns. But it all boiled down to James rapping about Jax Taylor cheating, and a fat shaming comment to Katie Maloney, that united the cast against him. 

The only cast members to stick up for him during the reunion were Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, and Raquel Leviss. Which is not a surprise, as Raquel is James girlfriend. And Tom has been a vocal advocate for James all season. He even confronted Katie and called her a bully. But where was James’ other supposed ally, Scheana Marie, in all this mess?
