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?
It’s no secret that Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are Vanderpump Rules superfans. Both of them constantly tweet about their obsession. The couple also appeared opposite the cast on an episode of Family Feud. Plus, Chrissy is the only most famous person to care about Meemaw’s Beer Cheese. Who could ever forget the couple singing the show’s theme song on Watch What Happens Live!?
This level of super-fandom has even made Chrissy Kyle Richards’ top choice to join the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s safe to say that many Bravolebrities view Chrissy as a huge step up from everyone they know friend. So much so that she and John are invited to Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding!
NeNe Leakes is having a tough year. Her husband, Gregg Leakes, was battling cancer. And battling NeNe. Also battling NeNe? The majority of the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast and some of the crew. But don’t feel sorry for NeNe, the majority of her battles are of her own making. NeNe threatened to “f*uck up” a cameraman. She physically assaulted Porsha Williams and another crew member in a closet. NeNe denounced her friendship with Cynthia Bailey. She fat-shamed Porsha approximately 6.2 seconds after Porsha expelled a human from her body.
Despite NeNe’s distasteful-bordering-on-criminal behavior, rumors have been swirling that she will receive a raise for appearing on RHOA Season 12. In fact, word on the (Peachtree) street is that the entire cast has received raises. It’s a good thing Ms. Leakes is a rich bitch, because it looks like she may not benefit from the alleged salary-hike. It looks like Season 12 of RHOA is filming without her!
What happened to the Vanderpump Rules of seasons past, where the focus was on restaurant drama, hooking up, partying, and cheating? Gone are the days of Jax Taylor throwing down wearing a chunky sweater or Stassi Schroeder saying she is the devil. Now the focus has shifted to engagement parties and crop top wedding dresses. Andy Cohen, if you’re reading, maybe it’s finally time for a recast.
The latest Pump Rules couple who will be
divorcing tying the knot are Brittany Cartwright and Jax. Brittany’s dream ever since she was a little girl was to have a fairy tale wedding, y’all. I’m sure she didn’t plan on marrying the court jester, but to each their own. This fairy tale wedding also includes 800 bridesmaids coast to coast, and Brittany made it clear to Lala Kent that she couldn’t possibly make it 801.
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.
Billie Lee came onto the scene as the first, and so far only, transgender member of the Vanderpump Rules gang. The past season was wrought with
being drunk constant fighting and everyone forming teams. Billie found herself on the wrong side of Lala Kent, but she wasn’t alone. She also found herself going up against the Witches of WeHo, who generally operate on the “kick ’em while they’re down” policy.
But sometimes it can be more than your average alcoholic fighting. Viewers watched as drama stemmed from loss and heartache, and many craft cocktails. Billie found herself engaged in several arguments that took her back to a very dark place. Fortunately she found help through an unlikely source, and proves that maybe people do grow up after all.
The latest Vanderpump Rules reunion turned into the Everyone Hates James Kennedy three-part special. Almost the entire cast of the show had it out for him. You would think he had kidnapped all of their firstborns. But it all boiled down to James rapping about Jax Taylor cheating, and a fat shaming comment to Katie Maloney, that united the cast against him.
The only cast members to stick up for him during the reunion were Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, and Raquel Leviss. Which is not a surprise, as Raquel is James girlfriend. And Tom has been a vocal advocate for James all season. He even confronted Katie and called her a bully. But where was James’ other supposed ally, Scheana Marie, in all this mess?
As Vanderpump Rules fans know, Tom Sandoval is many things. He’s an enigma, wrapped in a riddle and cash… Oh sorry, wrong enigma. But seriously, Tom 1 is an interesting guy. Tom cares about his looks. Long-time viewers remember his penchant for shaving his forehead, as seen in the first season of Pump Rules. The man also knows how to commit to a costume party.
Living in Los Angeles can certainly drive one to excess. Drinking, partying, and staying up late can age a person prematurely. Several members of the show have admitted to enhancing their features. I’m looking at you, Brittany Cartwright. I mean, isn’t Jax Taylor on his fifth nose? I’m not judging! While Lala Kent and Scheana Marie have helped several doctors pay off their medical school debt with Botox injections, we don’t hear a lot from the men in that area. Until now, that is.
