Most Housewives don’t miss the opportunity to invite the whole cast for an over-the-top themed birthday party. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case for Lisa Vanderpump this year. Yes, she had a luxurious (but casual by Lisa standards) birthday celebration this year, but there weren’t any Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast members in sight during her birthday party this year (at least that we see on social media).
Based on social media, it looks like Lisa kept the birthday celebrations to family and close friends. She spent time with her husband Ken Todd, daughter Pandora Vanderpump, her nephews, her dogs, and longtime friend Mohamed Hadid.
During the Season 6 finale of Vanderpump Rules, Lisa Vanderpump asked Jax Taylor to quit SUR. Most likely Jax has more than enough money to survive considering that he’s been carrying this show with his antics from Day 1. Not only that, but he’s also taking in that Instagram ad money. With that said, Lisa asking Jax to quit working at a restaurant right before filming ended sounded like a pretty good proposition to me. He gets the time off and he doesn’t have to “work” when he (most likely) has the funds to maintain his lifestyle. There’s no chance in hell that Jax “quitting” SUR actually meant that he wouldn’t be on the show. No matter what happened, he would still be the self-proclaimed “number one guy in this group.”
He was going to return for Season 7 in one way or another. Now there are reports that Jax is working at Tom Tom- the restaurant that Lisa and Ken Todd are opening with Tom Sandovaland Tom Schwartzas junior partners. Jax famously only knows how to make a vodka cranberry when he’s behind the bar, so he probably wasn’t at the top of the potential bartenders list. Even so, there isn’t a controversy that Jax is a bartender at the new restaurant. Maybe he’s applying his skills elsewhere? I can’t help expecting a contrived story line with Tom and Tom “hiring” Jax without Lisa’s approval.
Among the reality stars who turned up to check out the new venture: the Vanderpump Rules cast, Dorinda Medley, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, Reza Farahan, Blac Chyna and so many more! Even Ladies of London star Sophie Stanbury came over to check things out! (Sidenote: we really, really miss that show!) See the photos from Tom Tom down below in the gallery! Who had the best look of the night?
On television, most reality TV stars are focused on the drama, which makes perfect sense it’s a job, but in real life most of your favorite reality TV stars are all about the family time. Or at least that’s what they’re sharing on Instagram these days.
Former New Jersey Housewife Caroline Manzo spent quality time with her granddaughter Marchesa- a photo that she decided to caption with some Kanye West lyrics, which is very unexpected to say the least. Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizziand her two kids had a dance party with Mickey Mouse.
Let’s be honest: Vanderpump Rules is the gift that keeps on giving. Don’t get me wrong, I love (almost) every single show on Bravo, but I don’t “like” them all equally. Some of them have been slacking with the recent seasons.
Vanderpump Rules has more going on in one episode than most Real Housewivesshows do in an entire season. I’m looking at you, Beverly Hills Housewives. The story lines just keep on coming. So of course, Tom Sandoval was asked about 98484838737 different topics during his appearance on Watch What Happens Livelast night. There was just so much to address from this season alone.
Here’s the thing though: everyone in this cast loves Brittany– who Jax cheated on with Faith Stowers– so it’s tough for the rest of the cast members to have sympathy for him given the bigger scandals in their relationship.
