One thing we can look forward to if and when Vanderpump Rules comes back is Scheana Shay being pregnant and in a seemingly healthy relationship. Never forget, Scheana gave Lisa Vanderpump a reason to pitch the spinoff to Bravo by having an affair with Eddie Cibrian, Brandi Glanville’s ex-husband. Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Katie Maloney tried to make Scheana the villain on the show. However, that ultimately failed when it couldn’t be denied that they were actually awful people.
Throughout Scheana’s tenure on Pump Rules she has been trolled pretty hard. By fellow cast members, fans, and even shady former producers. Bottom line, if crappy people like Jax Taylor can get their happy ending on the show, I think Scheana, deserves the same. I know I’m not the only Scheana fan in the room either.
Remember Vanderpump Rules? If this were an ordinary year (where did those go?) we would be watching our once favorite SURvers right now as they made fun of Scheana Marie, fought over petty BS, and got sloppy drunk. Alas, the reckoning of 2020 put a stop to all that. Production for Season 9 is still halted due to COVID and Bravo fired OGs Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute for racist actions against Faith Stowers. Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright also got the ax “parted” with Pump Rules in 2020.
So, who’s left? Lala Kent, Scheana, Tom Schwartz, Katie Maloney, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, James Kennedy and newbie Charli Burnett. That sounds like enough for a show to me. But it seems like Bravo is slowly backtracking on last year’s exodus. First, Andy Cohen publicly mourned the changes. Now, it’s Lisa Vanderpump’s turn to plant the seeds for redemption.
The baby updates keep on coming from former and current Vanderpump Rules stars alike. Stassi Schroeder was the first pregnancy pact member to have a baby. She recently welcomed daughter Hartford into the world. Lala Kent also has a daughter on the way, and is already planning on having her second child. Brittany Cartwright’s son, Jax Jr., will also arrive shortly. Scheana Marie isn’t a member of the pact, but she will be having her baby this year as well.
That leaves two OG stars left, Katie Maloney and Kristen Doute. Neither are pregnant yet, but Katie shared she and Tom Schwartz are on the baby bandwagon and trying to conceive. Katie pretty much already mothers Tom, so she’ll be able to handle a baby just fine. Kristen hasn’t been as vocal about motherhood, but she finally made an update on her plans and if a baby could be in her future.
Once a year, something exciting happens in Utah. As January wraps its icy hand around the state, celebrities descend on Park City for the Sundance Film Festival. For two weeks, the state most known for religion becomes the epicenter of the entertainment industry, with A-list stars and indie up-and-comers converging for an endless parade of premieres, parties and Park City moments. And this week, we get to experience it all through the fabulous lens of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.
As a native Utahn, Sundance truly was the most fun I had all year. Every year of college, my friends and I would make a staycation out of it, renting a hotel suite in Park City and spending the weekend strolling Main Street and meeting celebs and Bravolebrities alike. In fact, Sundance was the very first time I ever encountered a Housewife in real life. Over the years, my BFFs and I met everyone from Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley to the Shahs of Sunset and the Vanderpump Rules gang. In fact, my most epic Sundance stories involve both Harry Styles and one particular A-list actor who shall remain nameless. But those are stories for another day. Let’s get into the recap, shall we?
The Vanderpump Rules reckoning is an ongoing movement. Since OGs Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired this summer for racist behavior (along with newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni), people have been waiting for Jax Taylor to get the boot. Jax and his wife, Brittany Cartwright, made headlines this year when it was revealed that they were totally apathetic about having a homophobe marry them on TV. It was also revealed that Brittany used racial slurs against Faith Stowers.
Jax and Brittany got booted off Pump Rules last week. In spite of the fact that Stassi didn’t want them to get fired. Brittany’s meemaw can’t churn out the beer cheese fast enough to sooth either of them. This was a long time coming for Jax. His absence will shift the show, and even Andy Cohen is ready for the change.
We’ve seen a lot of changes coming out of Vanderpump Rules since filming stopped this year. After firing Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute, the show seemed destined to fade. But then came the baby explosion, thanks for a very real pregnancy pact by the ladies on the show.
Stassi announced her pregnancy. Then came Lala Kent revealing she’s pregnant. Next was Brittany Cartwright, who is by far my least favorite pregnant person if you check out her ultra-annoying Instagram. Finally, after a heartbreaking miscarriage, Scheana Shay is finally having her happy ending with a pregnancy of her own. Even Katie Maloney and forever-bum husband, Tom Schwartz are trying to have a kid.
Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent and her man Randall Emmett have mostly been in the news as of late due to Lala’s growing baby bump. Lala proudly announced she and the rest of the Pump Rules crew made a pregnancy pact, and so far she, Stassi Schroeder, and Brittany Cartwright have kept their word. All three are pregnant, and are now pushing for Katie Maloney to join the fold.
Lala, of course, has also been busy getting into fights online. Her on again off again friendship with Scheana Marie is now off again. Scheana accused Lala of not supporting her during her miscarriage, and Lala denies all wrong doing. Lala also got into the middle of a feud between Real Housewives of Orange County stars Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke. Perhaps Lala should instead start focusing on fixing troubles closer to home. And that trouble would be with Randall.
Real Housewives of Salt Lake City made its debut, and I am here for it! I love the new faces, diversity, and fresh location.
A couple of the RHOSLC ladies already stand out, and Whitney Rose is one of them. During the premiere, Whitney renewed her vows with her husband, Justin Rose, to celebrate 10 years of marriage.
