Vanderpump Rules Reunion Part 1 Recap: Crying Shame

Last night kicked off the Vanderpump Rules reunion and the main topic on the agenda were all the horrible relationships (what else?) floating like backwash in the half-drunk cocktails at SUR. From Tom Sandoval‘s gripes that Lisa Vanderpump doesn’t take him seriously as an entrepreneur and restaurant designer, to the many, many delusional thoughts of Scheana Marie Shay Famewhorini and her ROBsession.

Jax Taylor was on an emotional roller coaster, which wasn’t too different from Jax Taylor-coaster we’ve seen all season, except instead of depending on reiki master Kelsey to feel up his feelings, he was actually mourning the death of his father. Through his tears, Jax describes it as the worst thing that’s ever happened to him but the loss made him realize what an impossible mega-douche he’s been to everyone since, oh, time infinitum. It’s like someone held the evil stepmother’s mirror up to Jax and showed him the truth! That person was not Stassi Schroeder, shockingly. 

Scheana was bullied?

All good things must come to end. Luckily for the Vanderpump Rules fans Season 6 will not officially be over until the three-part reunion and the “Secrets Revealed” special airs.

Considering that more drama went down in one episode of this show than entire season of most reality TV shows, the reunion episodes are sure to be explosive.

Stassi Schroeder

After a long, protracted, repetitive, and drawn-out season, Vanderpump Rules ended where it always does – in the beginning, with a tale of woe of Jax Taylor and Stassi Schroeder; two ships crossing in the night during a tsunami. Jax and Stassi didn’t have drama together (although Jax was gobsmacked by seeing Patrick in the flesh), but the epicenter of this show has always been Jax and Stassi.

Honestly it should because they’re both tragicomic heroes. Two people so miscalculating in their own effects, yet squandering so much potential that it almost makes me feel bad for them. All the characters on this show are like that to a degree, but none so poignantly as Jax or Stassi, one, a star-crossed failure, and the other a star-crossed hater who idealizes murder because she can’t confront her own painful insecurities.

Brittany and Adam

Here’s what I was doing instead of writing a Vanderpump Rules recap: researching Captain Picard cookie cutters on the internet. But honestly, that might not be so far off-base. Any Star Trek TNG fans out there? Well, you should be – it would be super great if Captain Picard could beam down and save this mess from itself, because NO ONE interesting this season. Except James Kennedy, but that’s beside the point.

I’m supposed to be all bent out of shape and emotionally invested because Jax Taylor finally manned up enough to dump Brittany Cartwright. She reacted by storming out of their apartment amid a stream of twang-laced obscenities (which sounds like what happens when you mix Tang with beer from an aluminum can) and Jax reacted by stress-eating himself a piece of greasy leftover pizza then strolling down the hall to Tom and Katie’s.

Jeremy Madix

As Ariana Madix’s brother, her roomate, and the man who saved SUR from burning down, Jeremy Madix has been on Vanderpump Rules for a while. For the most part he was just there, working hard at SUR or turning up at a party, and then all of a sudden he became a story line- and not for a “good” reason.

Billie Lee told Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute that Jeremy asked her out on a date and they warned her that Jeremy is “creepy.” Then we were blessed with some unseen footage from Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney’s wedding reception with Jeremy attempting to make a move on Stassi. Ariana’s man Tom Sandoval confronted Kristen, Stassi, and Katie about the accusations, and then we didn’t really hear from Jeremy after that. Sure, we saw the date with Billie, but they just left that story line behind. It’s understandable since there are 959548484847 people on this show, but it still feels unfinished.

Tom Sandoval 'proposes' to Tom Schwartz

While Tom Sandoval was giving Tom Schwartz an ‘I promise you an eternity of booze’ ring, Jax Taylor finally yanked the bandaid off and dumped Brittany Cartwright on last night’s Vanderpump Rules.

All it took for Jax to reach this inevitable conclusion was cheating with a friend, several screaming fights, a threatened moved to Florida for a fake job, a meltdown that nearly got him fired, meddling friends, a fake first date with a fake crush, the return to an abandoned identity, and one reiki instructor who fled to Africa! I mean would you stick around for the fall-out of that mess? 

Dorinda Medley & 31 Surprise Guests On Watch What Happens Live; NeNe Leakes Has Beef With Reza Farahan

Last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live was packed with (reality) star power. Andy Cohen had Dorinda Medley on as his featured guest and 31 other Bravolebrities rang the doorbell before making surprise appearances.

Since the episode was taped in Los Angeles, it was mostly cast members from the Bravo shows that take place in California: Vanderpump Rules, Shahs of Sunset, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Real Housewives of Orange County, but plenty of other notable Bravo personalities showed up. It was a really fun episode to watch, but the 31 extra guests definitely took away from Dorinda’s time in the spotlight- at least in my opinion.

Hot Pics –
