Tom Sandoval Is Still Jax Taylor’s Best Man After Vanderpump Rules Reunion Drama

Tom Sandoval was not shy about sharing his opinions during Season 7 of Vanderpump Rules. From defending James Kennedy, to calling Katie Maloney a bully, Tom didn’t really back down when it came to voicing his thoughts. Even when it meant going against best friends, Jax Taylor and Tom Schwartz, Sandoval pretty much held his ground during several disputes.

During the reunion taping, Tom 1 once again found himself defending James. Jax and the DJ discussed their differences rationally almost came to blows multiple times. Tom 1 consistently stuck up for James and his girlfriend, Raquel Leviss. At one point, Brittany Cartwright screamed at Tom because he wasn’t siding with Jax in the debates. Fans were wondering what, if any, impact this would have on Tom 1’s role as best man when Jax and Brittany seal their doom get married later this summer.

Celebrate Mother’s Day With Our List Of 8 Scene Stealing Moms From Reality TV

Do you ever watch reality TV and feel like the cast members are friends in your head? How about the parents? Do you ever watch and wonder what it would be like to have them as a mom? Just me? Alright, then.

I cannot help being fascinated by the relationships between reality TV stars and their mothers. Not all moms are created equal and not everyone is meant to be a reality TV star. Some of them are just hilarious. They steal every scene and deserve to star in shows of their own. It gets to a point with some of these cast members that it seems like their moms are the reason they’re still on TV. I don’t want to call anyone out, but when your mom gets her own on-camera interviews on your show, she’s definitely stealing your shine. Whether she’s trying to or not.

Summer House Paige DeSorbo Lindsay Hubbard

I know Summer House has been getting a bad rap this season. However, as each episode airs, I’m liking it more and more. This week, we pick up where we left off, at the Monte Carlo party, where a bomb has just dropped. Danielle Olivera spilled the beans to Paige DeSorbo about the latest Kyle Cooke cheating rumor. It’s hard to keep track of how many there have been at this point.

Lindsay Hubbard is pissed. I’m on #TeamHubbs here. It was not Danielle’s place to say anything, especially at a party where everyone is drunk.

Tax Taylor & Brittany Cartwright

Feathers were ruffled at part 1 of Vanderpump Rules reunion. I am not referring to Raquel Leviss’s dress, however. That looked like it was designed by Bed, Bath and Beyond. Instead, I’m talking about Raquel’s boyfriend James Kennedy, who nearly faced off with everyone in the cast.

At one point, James and his arch nemesis Jax Taylor almost come to blows over some allegations made on Twitter. Their exchange got so heated that Andy Cohen had to separate the pair.  Ariana Madix had a front row seat to the exchange. 

James Kennedy & Raquel Leviss

Last night was the Met Gala and also someone was thrown out of a PTA meeting at my kids’ school when things erupted into a full-on screaming match. Fittingly, it was also part 1 of Vanderpump Rules reunion – so yeah, busy night!

Also as if trying to straddle two events, like she straddles two worlds on Vanderpump Rules, Raquel Leviss‘s reunion dress was the very definition of the Met Gala theme “Camp,” boasting uber-exaggerated shoulders accented by a full duvet of ruffles. It was like a super amped up version of an Alice In Wonderland dress. I loved it. It was almost a perfect representation for the ridiculousness of this show. Raquel came to make a statement that she is here to stay. 

Jax Taylor & Brittany Cartwright

Lord this season of Vanderpump Rules was a boring, self-produced, mess but we still need a three-part reunion, hopefully to put punctuation marks on a lot of the cast’s story so they can move gracefully on to suburbia in their new homes and careers. So why not go out with a bang!

Of course what’s probably going to happen instead is that last season will be treated as a last-hurrah with dueling Stassi Schroeder and Jax Taylor weddings. Or if we’re lucky that becomes its own spinoff. 

Stassi Schroeder & Her Mom

For a long time, Stassi Schroeder was the designated “villain” on Vanderpump Rules. Now, it’s pretty easy to justify that label for most of the cast members. Almost all of them have filled that role for an episode or two. Even so, it was easy to feel for Stassi during her mom Dayna Schroeder’s appearances earlier this season.

While fawning all over Stassi’s man Beau Clark, Dayna told her daughter, “I don’t want you to be yourself and mess it up.” That was very harsh. She also got wasted at Stassi’s birthday and used that as an excuse to talk about her daughter’s boyfriend’s penis. It was even more cringe-worthy than it sounds. So where does the mother/daughter duo stand today? Things are not great, which is (sadly) not-at-all surprising to any of the viewers.

Check Out Photos From The Vanderpump Rules Season 7 Reunion Taping

The Vanderpump Rules reunion episodes are always a highlight for fans. The cast never disappoints when it comes to rehashing their old drama. And, creating new drama, of course. They all get dressed to the nines just to argue for hours on end.

I could never imagine getting all glammed up just to argue with my frienemies. Then again, they are getting paid to film a TV show. We have seen clips from the reunion and heard warnings about how awful it was from Jax Taylor. Before tonight’s episode airs, check out some pictures from the taping.
