Waiting for new Vanderpump Rules episodes is killing me. Is it January 7 yet? Unfortunately, it is not. However, fans can fill the void by watching Pump Rules repeats and by reading Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix’s new book. And by “reading,” I mean trying out every single drink recipe and making some questionable decisions after. Tom and Ariana even included some hangover remedies in the book, so they really do provide you with everything you need.
Yes, the cocktail book that the couple argued about a few seasons ago is finally here. Fancy AF Cocktails: Drink Recipes from a Couple of Professional Drinkers is the perfect gift for your fun friends… or yourself, which is actually also a gift to others if you make a batch of cocktails from Tom and Ariana’s recipes. The duo has been all over the country promoting their book and it all culminated with last night’s launch party at Skybar at Mondrian Los Angeles.
Lala Kent needs to know, don’t start none, won’t be none! I mean, after that incredibly brutal public humiliation Randall Emmett went through because of his beloved fiancée, don’t you think she would just stop? Sorry, but now the Vanderpump Rules star has to play ball. First things first, I have a confession to make and I want to share it with you guys first. I have fallen in love. The object of my desire is none other than the multi-talented and independently wealthy, 50 Cent. This is a man who has worked hard. Became a multimillionaire after getting a record contract. Took on the challenge of acting, where he has also achieved success. But my boyfriend’s talents do not stop there. Fofty possesses an otherworldly skill. It’s almost as if he was blessed at birth. Friends, I’m speaking of MY MAN’S ability to, well, troll a bitch.
It was inside the realm of Fofty’s thespian duties where he met producer Randall. A friendship blossomed and at one point, my future husband compassionately loaned Randall $1 million in a time of need. Everything was fine and dandy until my beloved was made aware of the numerous high end gifts Lala was
earning receiving from Randall. Yet Randall had neglected to repay the $1 million. Understandably miffed, Fofty did what few people have dared to do, call Lala out on social media. Lala decided to challenge the object of my affection in battle of wits. It was the best of times, it was the best of times… Now Lala has done it again, and my Fofty isn’t here for it.
The social media beef between Lala Kent, her fiancé Randall Emmett, and 50 Cent was the feud I never knew I needed. While Randall didn’t actually take part in the public argument, Fofty did share screenshots of their text conversations. Truly legendary.
And Lala had no problem clapping back at the rapper. She treated him like he was Billie Lee in the middle of brunch at Pump. And he shaded her (and Randall) right back. The feud was resolved when 50 got his money. He even removed the social media posts, but those screenshots live will live on forever in infamy.
Back in July,
AC Slater Mario Lopez got skewered (and rightfully so) because he made some ignorant comments about parenting and transgender children. Mario, a father of three, suggested that it is “dangerous” for parents to label a child as transgender. He also said something confusing about how young children don’t know anything about sexuality so they can’t possibly decide that they are transgender.
Mario seems to have confused “gender identity” with “sexual orientation.” Someone get Mario Billie Lee’s phone number, because he is in serious need of her tutelage. Mario has since issued an apology. As. He. Should. In the wake of Mario’s ignorant comments, Cindy Barshop, from Season 4 of the Real Housewives of New York opened up about her own transgender child.
If I didn’t already know that Bille Lee had quit Vanderpump Rules, I would have thought she was a major player in the upcoming season. She has been all over social media as of late. Billie dished about her relationship with Lisa Vanderpump’s son, Max Todd. Then she announced that she is ready to have a baby. Is there anyone on the show, besides Ariana Madix, who doesn’t want to have a baby?
One of the main reasons Billie decided to leave the show was because she felt like she was bullied. Last season, Lala Kent went mental on Billie during her brunch event, and Katie Maloney left her out of the planning for SUR’s Girls Night Out. And now Jax Taylor is in the mix with some choice words of his own for Billie.
Billie Lee has definitely lived up to the phrase “do not go gentle into that good night.” Recently, she dropped the bombshell she quit Vanderpump Rules to focus on an anti-bullying campaign, and that she was bullied on the show. Welcome to the club Billie! You are now members with Scheana Marie, Lala Kent, James Kennedy, Raquel Leviss, Tom Schwartz…
Then Billie announced the news that she is ready to have a baby. She’s in a good head space, and even made up with Lala, who was there to support her during some dark times she had while on the show. And it’s pretty amazing they made up considering they were at each others throats during brunch and at Scheana’s housewarming party. Billie still has more to talk about, and this time it’s about the cast.
Billie Lee was the first trans cast member on Vanderpump Rules. And, honestly, despite the hours I have spend watching, reading about, and writing about Vanderpump Rules, that’s about all I know about her. The past couple of seasons, she was just kind of… there. And she was only “there” sometimes. She definitely wasn’t “there” for Katie Maloney-Schwartz’s Girls Night Out Party or Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding!
And she won’t be “there” for anything anymore, because she
was fired for being super boring quit to focus on her anti-bullying campaign. Now that Billie has quit the show, she seems to be hitting all the media outlets. I guess she’s trying to get publicity for her “new projects?” Girl, make that 15 minutes last as long as you can!
Billie Lee has had quite the busy summer. Last month she was off celebrating Pride with Andy Cohen and the Bravo gang in New York City. Which just happened to be at the same time as Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s
made for TV wedding. I know I’d choose attending Pride over that Disney princess themed farce.
Shortly after that, she mentioned she cut down her role on the show to focus on her activism in the trans community. Then, Billie shared the news that she decided to quit Vanderpump Rules to focus on an anti-bullying campaign. I’m sure her experiences with Katie Maloney, Stassi Schroeder, and Kristen Doute made her a master on the subject matter. And now Billie has even more news to share.
