With Charli Burnett around, I assume that Scheana Marie looks in the mirror at lot less, since she has a “mini me” around all the time to side with her, listen to her complain about boys, and trash talk Dayna Kathan.
However, Charli is doing a lot more than that. She has become the second cast member to make their mark on this show thanks to pasta. James Kennedy is the first, of course. During the last Vanderpump Rules episode, Charli told Dayna that she’s never had pasta. In her entire life. How is that even possible? She also shared her “theory” that pasta makes people gain weight, well, duh. That’s not a theory. That’s a fact. And, well, Jax Taylor called her out and Lala Kent jumped in on the fun.
I felt some major secondhand embarrassment when Scheana Marie crashed boys night to talk with Max Boyens during the last Vanderpump Rules episode. First, she showed up at the restaurant to nonchalantly talk to Max while he was working at the bar. However, he wasn’t even there, and Scheana’s intention to casually talk to him didn’t not pan out.
Then, she texted him about her desire to clear the air after he referred to Scheana as “boy crazy” during the season premiere episode. Max read her texts out loud to the guys to seem cool. Production even showed some screenshots from the conversation to just twist that knife in a little bit further (they didn’t show any of Max’s responses). Moreover, that’s not the whole story. Scheana did not actually crash the gathering. Max invited her… and then acted like he didn’t. Wow. I would feel so bad for her if she wasn’t hazing Dayna Kathan at SUR because of Dayna’s hookups with Max (no matter how much Scheana denies the reasoning, we all can make that connection).
On last night’s Vanderpump Rules Tom Sandoval got bit by the itsy-crazy spider and lost his head. That spider was the black widow of man-sanity!
Charli Burnett and Dayna Kathan are both finishing their training at SUR. While Charli is feeling right at home in the bosom of Scheana Marie‘s attentions, Dayna is feeling ostracized. Being called a mini Scheana Marie is definitely NOT a compliment, and considering that Charli claims she’s never eaten pasta she is not gong to fit in well here because it is literally ALL about the pasta!
Scheana is trying to play mind games with Dayna by pretending the still has her acrylic claws into Max Boyens. Scheana shows up at SUR to pick up a uniform and announces that she’s going to crash boys night to confront Max for calling her “boy crazy.” Because nothing says ‘I’m completely sane and not at all desperate’ like wearing an ill-fitting, cleavage baring dress and interrupting a bro-down to discuss about relationship boundaries with a person you’ve never had a relationship with outside of sending him a stalking device FOR THANKSGIVING.
Vanderpump Rules is back tonight for a brand new episode. After years of tension without an obvious cause, Stassi Schroeder and Tom Sandoval get into an explosive fight during tonight’s episode. Tom pulls a Katie Maloney and sends out some rage texts after he’s excluded from planning Stassi’s book signing at TomTom.
In other news, Tom Sandoval and Jax Taylor are still at odds. This leaves their best friend Tom Schwartz stuck in the middle. Schwartz tries his best to mend the problems between his two best friends before the cast Miami trip, but I feel like his efforts aren’t going to work. At least in the long-run.
If you thought Dayna Kathan looked familiar when Vanderpump Rules Season 8 started, it’s probably because she has been on the show before. “Coincidentally,” she and some other women were present for a guys’ staycation at a local hotel during a previous season. She also disappeared into the bathroom with Vanderpump Rules OG Peter Madrigal.
During the Season 8 premiere, Peter said that he hoped it wasn’t going to be awkward with her working at SUR after they hooked up. Dayna denied the hookup and said she was just peeing. Excuse me, who brings a stranger into a hotel bathroom to pee? Especially with a reality TV crew in the wings. During he confessional, she continued to poke fun at Peter, saying that she would remember “hooking up with a pirate.” Roll back, some unaired footage. Is she trying to discredit Peter? Or is Peter exaggerating their hookup? Jax Taylor jumped in to defend his friend in a series of tweets.
Vanderpump Rules has found itself at a crosshairs. Last night I witnessed Jax Taylor and Katie Maloney behave like mature-ish adults as they attempted to set some reasonable boundaries with Kristen Doute and Brian Carter about how their toxic codependency is affecting everyone else’s lives.
I mean I know Jax was just cosplaying the dad from Family Ties because he’s about to be a married
adulterer adulter soon, but this show is not supposed to be about capable adults acting accordingly. Vanderpump Rules is supposed to be about drunken, unhinged twenty-somethings who screw, scheme, and cry their way through terrible choices and still emerge with flawless skin.
On that vein, absolutely nobody cares about Jax’s wedding to Brittany Cartwright. Brittany sincerely believes everyone is as invested in her bridal registry and knot.com page as she is. Also this wedding that she’s planning has absolutely nothing to do with Jax, who might as well be a rent-a-fiance from some Hallmark Movie about proving to your judgmental small town relatives that you’re not an unmarriageable career woman, repugnant to blandly attractive men in tight sweaters. This wedding is about Brittany living out her fantasy, and her friends would rather let her merry hijack them than Kristen’s misery. I don’t blame them!
Last night was the season 8 premiere of Vanderpump Rules, and honestly EIGHT YEARS. EIGHT YEARS! You’d think these people would’ve grown up some, but alas here they are, still filling squirt guns with tequila and fighting about who’s a bad friend.
For many a’seasons I’ve been saying it’s high time for a cast change; one which acknowledges and reflects that the OGs are, well, missing the natural collagen in their faces and therefore no longer eligible to play the role of struggling bartender straight off the bus from St. Louis. Last night Vanderpump Rules finally paid credence to that, and it almost felt as if we were going into this season with the realization that it would be the last for the original crew. I’ll wear sequins to their funeral, play Solid Gold in downtempo, and drink PumpTinis with the rims salted with dehydrated tears.
A new era of Vanderpump Rules is upon us. The “kids” we’ve been watching for seven seasons are all grown up. Well, sort of. When Season 8 kicks off, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are planning their wedding and getting settled in their new home.
Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz invite everyone over to celebrate their new house. Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix abandoned their apartment for a house as well. But, the new season isn’t all about real estate and maturity.
