How about some positive news? It might not be world peace, but it’s a start. It seems like drama is unfolding for the upcoming season of Vanderpump Rules. This time around James Kennedy might be taking a break from the fighting. Hopefully, the fighting will also take a break from him. James is still going strong with his long term lady friend, Raquel Leviss. She is now employed at SUR and hopefully avoiding
Katie Maloney internal conflict. The couple still live together and James recently celebrated his newfound sobriety!
As you might have guessed, James is still vibing with his music. Currently, no one seems to be stalking James or insulting Raquel. But maybe Kristen Doute has been busy lately. I’m kidding! We also know amends were made with his nemesis, Jax Taylor, though James and Raquel were absent from Jax’s recent nuptials. Earlier this summer James shared that even he and Lala Kent were back on speaking terms. Did Hell freeze over when I wasn’t looking or has James finally turned a corner? It’s starting to look like our White Kanye might not get the bad edit this year!
Labor Day means a long weekend, which usually translates to some fun times with family and friends. Some of the Vanderpump Rules cast members headed down to Cabo to celebrate Lala Kent’s twenty-ninth birthday. Lala posted a photo in her birthday suit. Stassi Schroeder posed with a sombrero on. Katie Maloney showed off her assets for the camera as well.
Meanwhile, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright went out of the way to make sure that their social media followers knew that they missed their flights to Cabo just in case anyone wondered if they weren’t invited. And I can’t blame them given Jax’s other cast feuds.
Even though fans haven’t seen a single frame of footage from Vanderpump Rules Season 8, the devoted viewers have followed the drama on social media. It seemed like Kristen Doute, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, and Scheana Marie unfollowed Jax Taylor on Instagram.
However, Kristen revealed that he actually blocked her. And, if that is true, he presumably blocked the others as well…. even though they were all just members of the wedding party for his June nuptials to Brittany Cartwright. How awkward for Brittany, the self-proclaimed peacemaker.
The Witches of WeHo fans who were hoping that Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark’s engagement news would bring her and Kristen Doute back together will have to keep on hoping. As of this moment, it seems like Stassi and Kristen are still on the outs.
Meanwhile, Stassi is moving forward with her wedding plans. She recently went wedding dress shopping with her mom Dayna Schroeder, Brittany Cartwright, Katie Maloney, and even Katie’s mom Teri.
Remember when Vanderpump Rules used to be about friends getting drunk and sleeping with one another? Now that most of the cast have significant others, legally or otherwise, the conflicts have taken a different turn. Have we seen the last of Jax Taylor and his promiscuous ways? Is Kristen Doute no longer stalking her ex-boyfriends? Has Katie Maloney put down the tequila bottle forever? With all of the “adulting” going on, you have to wonder if the show has lost it’s edge. Sure, next season we will get fancy houses and more weddings than we asked for, but do we really want that from Pump Rules?
At any rate, you might be aware the friends are feuding again. Stassi Schroeder stopped looking at her engagement ring long enough to admit this season’s drama is “killing her”. She’s not talking to Kristen anymore, basically shunning her to Scheana Marie Island. Bille Lee has left the scene entirely, though
no one really cares her storylines only revolved around being unliked. Last week we found out Kristen, Tom Sandoval, and Ariana Madix’s new face unfollowed Jax on social media. Now we might have the reason behind the blowout. In an interesting departure from the norm, this argument involves a servant of God. Kind of. And on the fifth day, the Lord said, give them petty!
If I didn’t already know that Bille Lee had quit Vanderpump Rules, I would have thought she was a major player in the upcoming season. She has been all over social media as of late. Billie dished about her relationship with Lisa Vanderpump’s son, Max Todd. Then she announced that she is ready to have a baby. Is there anyone on the show, besides Ariana Madix, who doesn’t want to have a baby?
One of the main reasons Billie decided to leave the show was because she felt like she was bullied. Last season, Lala Kent went mental on Billie during her brunch event, and Katie Maloney left her out of the planning for SUR’s Girls Night Out. And now Jax Taylor is in the mix with some choice words of his own for Billie.
Lisa Vanderpump managed to be one of the few members of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills
who lives in Beverly Hills not involved with a lawsuit. After a season of feeling bullied and blamed, Lisa isn’t dealing with the show at all anymore. As much as Lisa’s fanbase will miss her, the departure was probably for the best. To secure your spot, you have to maintain an image. Lisa is not a D-list celeb, there just wasn’t a lot of purpose for her to continue RHOBH.
Lisa will still film Vanderpump Rules and continue running her fleet of restaurants. Her new Vanderpump Cocktail Garden in Las Vegas is getting a lot of attention. Of course we’ll return to Tom Tom once Pump Rules begins it’s new season. Then we vested favorites, Villa Blanca and SUR. You remember the old saying about her two establishments, “Villa Blanca is where you take your wife, and SUR is where you take your mistress.” Now, according to recently learned reports, you might take your mistress to SUR, but take some Pepto with you.
Everyone has to have priorities in life, right? Priorities can be an imaginary guideline one follows to stay on track. An invisible set of rules that provide structure and keeps a person goal-oriented. Stassi Schroeder has priorities too, you guys. The Vanderpump Rules veteran has never shied away from her quest to be fabulous. Why, Stassi even has her own national holiday. The social media maven is always posting style inspo in an effort to keep all of us better dressed. Her Outfit Of The Day posts have a rather large following.
Another one of Stassi’s priorities is her upcoming wedding to Beau Clark. Stassi and Beau have been a couple since 2018. Together they have ridden the rails of Stassi’s ever-changing
personalities peaks and valleys. And you know what, Stassi deserves a decent dude. Mainly because she previously hooked up with assholes men who never held her in high regard. With that, you might assume Stassi’s main focus is planning for her big day. Finding that dress and deciding on a perfect location. Now she finally has the man, the ring, and the title of fiance. But what Stassi really wants takes about 9 months to receive.
