There isn’t much that can shock viewers of Vanderpump Rules. We’ve become jaded by infidelity, heavy partying, and glassy-eyed filming. Fans have watched relationships fail and flourish again. We have also seen some weddings.
We were treated to the charming, wooded ceremony between Tom Schwartz and
his captor Katie Maloney. Pump Rules gave us a Northern California spectacle of forest whimsy. As Tom Sandoval cried into a dog, Katie and Tom 2 traded vows and marriage rings. Since then, the two have shared endless good times and recently purchased a house. We must mention the United States’ own version of the royal wedding. Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright held court in Kentucky, as they promised to be in each other’s lives for the next two years forever. Katie served as Brittany’s Matron of Honor, a title given to the bride’s married friend in a wedding party. But hang on folks! We are now finding out Katie might not be a Matron after all. Or a wife.
Looks like we’ll be seeing even less of Billie Lee next season on Vanderpump Rules!
The SUR hostess revealed her role on the Lisa Vanderpump-led spinoff will be smaller during the upcoming eighth season. She’s been featured in a recurring capacity the last two years as the show’s lone trans cast member.
One might say Kristen Doute is unlucky in love. During her tenure on Vanderpump Rules, viewers watched Kristen cheat on long-term boyfriend, Tom Sandoval. She moved on with James Kennedy.After her saga with James ended, she briefly shagged Aleks Taldykin from Below Deck. When Kristen finally met Brian Carter on a dating app, love blossomed and the two began their journey of romance.
Not all relationships are meant to last. Especially in Kristen’s case. As she watched her friends get married and move into multi-million dollar homes, her love affair with Carter began to crumble. Relationship experts Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney advised Kristen to leave Carter because he was basically living off of Kristen’s paycheck. Viewers had hoped Kristen found her happily ever after, but it wasn’t to be. Now there is new evidence Kristen and Carter
haven’t stopped banging have reignited the flames of desire, making the dating world a safer place to be once again.
Season 7 of Vanderpump Rules was a tough one for Billie Lee. Like James Kennedy, she was excluded from most events. The biggest snub for Billie last season was being excluded from “Girls Night In” at SUR because Katie Maloney is awful forgot. Lala Kent, who was grieving the loss of her father, also shouted in Billie’s face most of the season. Needless to say, Billie was a bit adrift last season on Pump Rules.
Thankfully things seem to be turning around for her and Lala. She’s also been busy celebrating Pride month across the country, with everyone from Bravo. In spite of the tide turning, she was left off the guest list for the most important filming event of Season 8. Billie was not present at Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding last week. The good news is, she couldn’t care less!
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Cauchi. Cauchi is Jax Taylor’s actual last name in case anyone forgot. And, yes, Jax and Brittany Cartwright tied the knot during a weekend-long extravaganza in a Kentucky castle.
Every single Vanderpump Rules cast member was a part of the wedding. Well, except for James Kennedy, Raquel Leviss, and Billie Lee, who were not invited, obviously. Other than that, Kentucky was full of Bravolebrities.
Could James Kennedy be ready to put a ring on it? He sure thinks so. Even with all of the cheating allegations and general instability in his life, he is convinced that he and Raquel Leviss will be the next Vanderpump Rules couple to walk down the aisle.
And why not? This was a great
storyline move for Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright, who are getting married next week, which will be filmed for Season 8, of course. Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz had a whole season devoted to their wedding planning… which wasn’t the best look for them. Will James and Raquel be the next Vanderpump Rules duo to get engaged for a storyline? And who can forget when Scheana Marie got married in that crop top wedding dress?
LA Pride has become a staple on each Vanderpump Rules season. Every year, Lisa Vanderpump and the rest of the cast members go all out for Pride. Every single one of them gets in on the celebration.
And, for the most part, they all dress up in some festive outfits, especially the ladies. And Tom Sandoval, of course. He always comes through for a thematic event and Pride is no exception.
Since Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s joint bachelor/bachelorette party went so well, the Vanderpump Rules cast decided to apply the same concept in honor of Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s big day. In case you didn’t detect my sarcasm, or if you’re a new viewer, Tom and Katie’s party was a complete and total shit show.
Yes, in a fun way, but also in a cringe-worthy way, i.e. the arguments. It was rough to see Tom and Katie arguing just before they tied the knot. Who could ever forget Tom Sandoval dressed in drag yelling about how Schwartz is a “battered wife”? Let’s hope that Jax and Brittany’s joint party was not reminiscent of Tom and Katie’s trip.
