Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Kristen Doute is having a major fan-supported come up this season. This comes after being ganged up on by Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder. It’s hard to tell if it’s Kristen is really a most-improved player or just the lesser OG evil on Vanderpump Rules. Either way, I am here for her. Truthfully, it’s difficult for me to be on the side of anyone Stassi has admitted to disliking.
Kristen has not only dealt with on-screen drama, but off-screen as well. First, Katie and Stassi tried to blame Kristen for making them look bad. Newsflash! You don’t need help there, ladies. Later, there were even body shaming pregnancy rumors swirling. Seriously, she has dealt with some twisted narratives all while having to get over her long time ex- Brian Carter. What can I say, I’m a sucker for an underdog story. And what better sidekick than the one and only baddie goddess queen, Ariana Madix?
If there is anyone who has consistently kept the drama going on Vanderpump Rules, it’s Kristen Doute. Her drama this season with Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney was pretty impressive. And Kristen has kept the momentum going with the release of her new book, He’s Making You Crazy. Fingers crossed her chapter with Brian Carter has officially closed.
I’m sure that Kristen not only has a lot of tea to spill about Carter in her book, but about former flames Tom Sandoval and Jax Taylor as well. Who could forget one of the most dramatic moments in Pump Rules history when Kristen finally admitted she cheated on Tom with
his best friend Jax. But what else does Kristen dish about the two? And most importantly, what would their significant others, Ariana Madix and Brittany Cartwright think?
Ugh – I am losing my patience for “Jax Taylor‘s show.” Jax needs to get off his high – very, very <snort, snort> high horse, and take Lisa Vanderpump‘s advice to “SHUT UP.” Lala Kent needs to come down with him. I do not need to see this jump off, with a face so inflated with fillers she looks like a balloon, tell anyone how to live. So are the days of Vanderpump Rules when the most awful people sanctimoniously judge others.
So much chaos in a zoom reunion. Even more so than in a regular old ‘on the stage’ reunion. The best though t’was Lisa chastising Andy Cohen for essentially showing up in his sweats. At the very least he could put on a low-cut satin blouse!
Jax and Tom Sandoval are rocking some serious facial hair. Is it like some sort of sign that they’re going to fight? Like they will start by throwing chairs at their computer screens, then throw the actual computers, then mutually run out their neighboring homes, race across the street and start brawling in the front lawn until they’re ticketed for breaking quarantine?
The Vanderpump Rules Season 8 reunion kicks off tonight. Andy Cohen meets with the many Vanderpump Rules cast members via video chat to dish on the most interesting moments of the season and to drop some truth bombs about some tea none of us knew about.
Of course, we will see Jax Taylor and Tom Sandoval’s feud play out, for the 100th time. And, most likely, they’ll be “best friends” again next season. However, I’m sure they’re gonna revisit the “pre-bachelor party” drama and the dueling pool parties.
Yes. You read that headline correctly. Stassi Schroeder from Vanderpump Rules is tired of being called a “mean girl.” Newsflash, lady! We are tired of you BEING a mean girl. I love petty drama but ugh. It’s honestly hard to even know where to begin with her. On ean episode this season, Stassi whines (over wine, HA!) to Beau Clark about how she isn’t allowed to “outgrow” her friendship with Kristen Doute. Like who said that?
Stassi is over her former co-witch Kristen. Shocking considering she is still conveniently friends with her ex-boyfriend Jax Taylor who cheated on her, lied to her face, and has generally been a terrible person forever. Stassi was also quick to make up with Katie Maloney when she was returning to the show after leaving post-Season 3. I mean, she can forgive, when it suits her. And rather than keep the peace with her longtime TV bestie, Stassi has taken to her podcast to continue her complaints.
Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute recently said that Scheana Marie carried the latest season of the show, but I’d have to say that Kristen did her fair share as well. A majority of the season was focused on her falling out with Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney over her on-again-off-again relationship with Brian Carter.
Stassi and Katie might not have appreciated the back and forth, but fans appreciated Kristen’s honesty. Relationships can be messy. And now Kristen is about to get even more honest and real about her personal life in her upcoming book, He’s Making You Crazy.
This season of Vanderpump Rules feels like we are watching two different shows. There are way too many new people. It’s so tough to get invested in their lives. It makes even less sense that these randoms have been plopped into the same friend group as the long-time cast members. Just none of it adds up.
Sure, there were some entertaining moments this season. Nevertheless, it’s clear that the glory days of Vanderpump Rules are long gone. Even Kristen Doute isn’t feeling Season 8.
Last night’s Vanderpump Rules finale truly felt like it was the end of an era. And I’m ready to send Jax Taylor off into the abyss, where surely he will go after yelling in Lisa Vanderpump‘s face that this is ‘his show’. Lisa has already endured that type of malarky with Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills so she’ll certainly not put up with it from underling upstarts living in Valley Village (ahem.. Brandi!)
Tom 1 and Tom 2, by compression, are now well on their way to being restaurant moguls after signing onto the expansion of Tom Tom. They are moving into adulthood (finally!), while Jax, don’t bother blessing his cold dead heart, isn’t moving at all. He’s trapped in a fishbowl of his own drool, constantly regurgitating his own nonsense.
Jax can pretend all he wants that he’s tired of Tom 1, but what Jax is really tired of is Tom 1 being successful. Tom and Jax came up together as bartenders at SUR. For most of Vanderpump Rules Jax’s drama has driven things; yet it is Tom who was given the nudge by Lisa.
