Is it January yet? I cannot wait for the return of Vanderpump Rules. Season 8 is definitely going to make up for the lackluster Season 7. The first trailer looked great, the new people seem dramatic, and I am so pumped (pun intended).
The fans at BravoCon were blessed with an additional Season 8 supertease and I can tell you with confidence that Season 8 is going to be nothing short of amazing.
This weekend is the first ever BravoCon. I have to admit that it sounds like a lot of fun. Tickets for the event went on sale in August and sold out immediately. Three days of all your favorite Bravo reality stars from all your favorite shows. The convention is featuring panels, photo ops, live shows and more. There is even going to be a Real Housewives Museum with photos, dresses worn at the reunions and Housewives memorabilia. Maybe Real Housewives of New York’s Aviva Drescher’s famously tossed prosthetic leg will make a guest appearance!
Bravo fans attending the event will also be able to try a special product inspired by one of the network’s favorite stars. Vanderpump Rules’ Lisa Vanderpump is being honored with a sparkling rosé that will debut at BravoCon.
Some viewers cannot understand how the Vanderpump Rules cast friendships work. Most of them are friends with their exes. Many of them are best friends with their former enemies. Overall, there are just a lot of relationships that buck conventional wisdom. And this is why the show is so interesting to watch.
It feels like a whole lifetime ago when Jax Taylor ripped off his white, chunky sweater to fight for a reconciliation with Stassi Schroeder. I will never forget that era of television. It was truly classic. Nevertheless, so much has changed since then. Jax and Brittany Cartwright got married in Kentucky castle back in June. Beau Clark proposed to Stassi in a cemetery soon after. And, as the fans know, they’re all friends. Stassi was even a bridesmaid in Jax and Brittany’s wedding. Sure, it makes sense now. However, it seemed like such a long shot back in the early seasons to think about Stassi being a bridesmaid in Jax’s wedding.
Is she, or isn’t she? That’s been the question of many Vanderpump Rules fans regarding the state of Brittany Cartwright’s womb. This is what usually happens after a young couple gets married. People automatically seem to go on bump watch, searching for any change in a new bride’s waistline. If it’s a celebrity couple, a woman’s body becomes fair game – which kind of sucks when you think about it.
Brittany and her husband, Jax Taylor, definitely want children, and they have been quite vocal about their desire to conceive. According to the couple, they want kids as soon as possible. Because they are in the public eye, Brittany’s stomach is now under a microscope. Whatever she wears, whatever she drinks, or doesn’t drink, is under constant criticism. Recently rumors have been floating around that there’s a baby on board, with media outlets posting photos of Brittany in various alleged maternity frocks. Brittany has finally decided to address the gossip encompassing her circumference, and if she is or isn’t.
The trailer for Vanderpump Rules Season 8 dropped last week and it looked good. Season 7 wasn’t the best since most of the cast got along and they’ve all settled down with serious relationships. We needed more and it looks like Season 8 will deliver.
Anyone who has followed the news in between seasons knows that there are some feuds brewing in Season 8. With that said, we already knew about Jax Taylor’s fall out with Tom Sandoval, although the exact cause is still unclear. The same can be said for Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney’s highly-publicized issues with Kristen Doute. Neither of those plot points was a “surprise” to anyone who saw the trailer, but the dramatic music along with those flashback clips paired with the Lisa Vanderpump narration got me hyped. And so did the new cast members. It’s comeback season Pump Rules. After many viewers yawned throughout last season, they’ve brought in some reinforcements. Let’s meet the new people.
Whether you agree with the results or not, the people have spoken. The People’s Choice Awards went down on November 10 and there were some big winners in the reality TV categories. And even the people who didn’t win showed up
to get some press enjoy the party.
I’m not gonna lie, I wish I got an invite because there were cast members from some of my favorite shows in attendance and I would just love to see them all interact. Real Housewives, Vanderpump Rules, The Bachelor, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians cast members showed up for the award show.
eternally single former SURver on Vanderpump Rules has another project in the works! Since being fired from Lisa Vanderpump’s sexy, unique retirement home Kristen has managed to keep her spot on Pump Rules. She hasn’t done it by emoting words of wisdom. She hasn’t done it by her exceptional friendship skills. And she hasn’t don’t it by maintaining a compelling storyline. Basically Kristen has kept her job by acting like that one adult in your life you speak to like a toddler because they are always about 2 minutes away from a massive freak out. Also, this is reality television, so it works.
Kristen has dabbled in several money-making ventures since leaving SUR. She participated in selling
whine wine with Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder. Kristen also has her own line of clothes. But what she’s most known for is her lack of impulse control. What she calls “crazy”. Now Kristen is parlaying her crazy into the world of literature. That’s right folks, Kristen is writing a self-help book.
We are already a few weeks into the Below Deck season and are starting to get a read on the new crew. It appears that at least a few of the crew members will be stirring up high seas drama. Chef Kevin Dobson has already raised the ire of chief stew Kate Chastain by calling her out for poor service at the first crew meeting. No good can come of that! Plus, Kevin has already stirred up a full season of drama in just two episodes with his intestinal issues. Pity the poor charter guests who are now watching the show knowing that he prepared their food!
Crabby third stew Courtney Skippon whines more than any crew member I have ever seen. What’s so bad about being on a yacht making great money in beautiful Thailand? It’s not like you are serving time in a Russian prison, Courtney! You have to wonder what it would be like to be Captain Lee Rosbach and have to deal with some of these characters. What would happen if he could pick his own dream crew for Below Deck?
