Who even knows what’s going to happen to Vanderpump Rules. The entire cast went and had a baby or got “left” the show last year, in some cases both. We hear Season 9 is set to happen, but several OGs will not appear. Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, to name a few. It seems like time is up for Pump Rules, especially considering most of the cast hasn’t worked at Lisa Vanderpump’s famed restaurants in years.
Long gone are the old days of the VPR stars throwing drinks at each other or sneaking wine on the job. They’re real ass adults now — Jax loves to mow the lawn (and allegedly not pay his taxes). Lala Kent is a new mom and Scheana Shay’s baby is on the way. They all bought fancy houses where you can use the air conditioner and microwave at the same time. And some of the old antics just make us cringe now, particularly Jax’s bad behavior.
This summer, Scheana Shay opened up about the miscarriage she experienced with Brock Davies. She shared that pregnant Stassi Schroeder was super supportive during that time, which apparently bothered Stassi even though it’s the only genuinely positive publicity she’s shared in a while. Now, Stassi and Scheana aren’t friends… again.
Scheana and Lala Kent publicly feuded when Scheana wasn’t invited to Lala and Randall Emmett’s gender reveal event. Then, Scheana crossed paths with Stassi and Lala at Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor’s gender reveal, which had to be awkward.
Viewers currently do not know the fate of Vanderpump Rules. This show could be clinging to very little when it comes to life support. Not only did Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder find themselves fired, several of the veteran ladies are now coincidentally pregnant at the exact same time. They have gone full pregnancy pact in WeHo.
Along with Kristen and Stassi, new cast members Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were also axed due to some extremely insensitive social media content. After the exodus, fans called on Jax Taylor to be fired as well. We all know Jax is never at a loss for being distasteful, but it has yet to earn him walking papers. Now Kristen, author, catchy-phrase t-shirt designer, and expert on workplace inequality thinks Bravo needs to be held accountable for practicing double standards.
Oh, Lisa Vanderpump, what a tangled web you weave. First, she has a lot to celebrate. Lisa has announced starting a new podcast and a new show about Vanderpump Dogs! I can’t wait to hear all about “ponies…and sex…or lack thereof.” A regular rainbows and butterflies kind of gal. Unfortunately, though, LVP’s image has also been hit with quite a few blows recently.
Vila Blanca has closed for good, and even Adrienne Maloof is coming forward to remind us of all the storylines LVP has constructed over the years. I think the running total is at like 5? Well, unfortunately, it doesn’t look like there’s a reprieve in sight for this lady in pink.
In the words of the iconic Luann de Lesseps, “can you believe it, girls”!? It has been less than 3 weeks since the firings of Vanderpump Rules cast Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute! Also, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were axed. Anyone care? Didn’t think so. I just like to repeat their names next to garbage to build that association forever. Moving on. So the long and short of it is that Stassi has been dumped by her PR firm and then was picked up by a new one. This new place is shoving Stassi’s pregnancy down our throats, likely in hopes that we forget about her racist actions towards former castmate Faith Stowers. Kristen, on the other hand has been mostly quiet. Well, except her forced apology after this all came to light. At least it’s something!
Both Kristen and Stassi have lost a lot of financial opportunities as a result of finally being held accountable for being terrible people. Kristen was dropped by her book publisher. The witches wine business has been canceled. Oh and Stassi’s thirsty and wholly uninteresting podcast has been taken off all platforms! I’m over here rejoicing for some bleak bits of justice left in this world. Others are out here trying to get these two back on our screens. No seriously, some people ACTUALLY still enjoy these two. Keep reading, but hold on tight.
Ever since the news that Vanderpump Rules fired four cast members, fans can’t help but wonder who could be next. Beyond that, there’s a petition from viewers who want Jax Taylor to get fired for the offensive remarks he has made throughout the years. Vanderpump Rules “alums” Billie Lee and Faith Stowers want him fired.
Even Lance Bass thinks Bravo is going to terminate Jax. Keep in mind that Lance officiated Jax and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding after they got rid of their homophobic pastor. Lance and Jax also have a line of drink mixers called Just Add X, which is an acronym that spells out “JAX.” However, Lance recently claimed that the “number one guy in the group” is stepping down from their company. He even remarked, “You know, we can’t be involved and associated with any of this going down. We have to do the right thing.” Now, Jax is responding to the *NSYNC alum’s claim that he told Jax “Bye Bye Bye.”
The Vanderpump Rules kids (and by kids I mean middle-aged adults) are at it again! As fans cry for Jax Taylor to be fired and he is dropped from an eye-wear company deal… not even Lance Bass could stop from announcing ending his business with Jaxy-poo. This is the same couple of week that Stassi Schroeder confirms her pregnancy, Stassi and Kristen Doute are fired from VPR, and we get to finally end this miserable season of the show.
Are you keeping up? Good. If you have been watching Vanderpump Rules for a while (and I assume you have because no one would stick around if this was their first season), then you remember Billie Lee. For those of you who somehow don’t know, Billie is a transgender cast-member of seasons past. She is best known for her activism, attempted education of this ignorant AF cast, and getting into an epic screaming match with Lala Kent. Specifically, she tried (and was shut down) to speak to Stassi about her problematic podcast statements on the show. She’s been commenting on the lack of VPR diversity since before it was cool. Also, she had sex with a ghost. Iconic.
