Meet The New Cast Members Joining Vanderpump Rules For Season 8- Photos

The trailer for Vanderpump Rules Season 8 dropped last week and it looked good. Season 7 wasn’t the best since most of the cast got along and they’ve all settled down with serious relationships. We needed more and it looks like Season 8 will deliver.

Anyone who has followed the news in between seasons knows that there are some feuds brewing in Season 8. With that said, we already knew about Jax Taylor’s fall out with Tom Sandoval, although the exact cause is still unclear. The same can be said for Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney’s highly-publicized issues with Kristen Doute. Neither of those plot points was a “surprise” to anyone who saw the trailer, but the dramatic music along with those flashback clips paired with the Lisa Vanderpump narration got me hyped. And so did the new cast members. It’s comeback season Pump Rules. After many viewers yawned throughout last season, they’ve brought in some reinforcements. Let’s meet the new people.

People’s Choice Awards Reality Show Winners & Photos- Tom Sandoval, Kandi Burruss, Lisa Rinna, & More!

Whether you agree with the results or not, the people have spoken. The People’s Choice Awards went down on November 10 and there were some big winners in the reality TV categories. And even the people who didn’t win showed up to get some press enjoy the party.

I’m not gonna lie, I wish I got an invite because there were cast members from some of my favorite shows in attendance and I would just love to see them all interact. Real Housewives, Vanderpump Rules, The Bachelor, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians cast members showed up for the award show.

Lisa Vanderpump’s Restaurant Empire Expands; Star To Open New Spot Next Door To Tom Tom

Just because Lisa Vanderpump is no longer on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, doesn’t mean we get to stop talking about her. Because, you know, she has another show on Bravo. In fact, it has been reported viewers will be seeing even more of Lisa on Vanderpump Rules next season due to her departure from RHOBH. Stand down haters!

Lisa wasn’t going to let a little thing like losing all of her friends dog drama keep her from adding to her bank account. Lisa’s former co-stars could probably benefit from some counseling in that area. While they have been going to court, she has been buying new real estate. After the success of Tom Tom in West Hollywood, Lisa decided to go ahead and buy the whole bloody block. She could probably have her own zip code at this point. Now Lisa is sharing the latest plans in her continuing takeover of WeHo.

Vanderpump Rules Star Kristen Doute Is Writing A Self-Empowerment Book; Wants Women To “Own Their Crazy”

Kristen Doute, eternally single former SURver on Vanderpump Rules has another project in the works! Since being fired from Lisa Vanderpump’s sexy, unique retirement home Kristen has managed to keep her spot on Pump Rules. She hasn’t done it by emoting words of wisdom. She hasn’t done it by her exceptional friendship skills. And she hasn’t don’t it by maintaining a compelling storyline. Basically Kristen has kept her job by acting like that one adult in your life you speak to like a toddler because they are always about 2 minutes away from a massive freak out. Also, this is reality television, so it works.

Kristen has dabbled in several money-making ventures since leaving SUR. She participated in selling whine wine with Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder. Kristen also has her own line of clothes. But what she’s most known for is her lack of impulse control. What she calls “crazy”. Now Kristen is parlaying her crazy into the world of literature. That’s right folks, Kristen is writing a self-help book.

Stassi & Kristen

Peace and harmony amongst the Vanderpump Rules Witches of WeHo trio of Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute and Katie Maloney was bound to end at some point. We’ve seen the three at odds many times before. For instance, when Kristen admitted to sleeping with Stassi’s ex-boyfriend, Jax Taylor. Or when Stassi treated Katie and Kristen like crap, moved to New York to be with Patrick Meagher, and then came groveling back when she couldn’t make it on her own. 

However, the trio was in a good place last season. The only hitch happened to be Kristen’s deadbeat boyfriend Brian Carter. Stassi and Katie made it loud and clear they felt Brian was taking advantage of Kristen, but Kristen wasn’t having it. Still, everything seemed fine between them. Until the past several months, that is. 

Scheana Marie

Fall season is in full swing! And that means an abundance of everything pumpkin flavored, and we are that much closer to watching the newest season of Vanderpump Rules. Luckily, some of the drama has already been on social media. Time to spill the tea pumpkin spice latte. 

First, Stassi Schroeder didn’t invite Kristen Doute to her engagement party. Who was there to cause drunken mayhem then? Jax Taylor blocked most of the cast on social media. He also hasn’t taken kindly to the newest threats to his job security peeps to join the cast. Scheana Marie has been having fun dating other reality TV stars who may or may not be able to hang a TV in under seven minutes. And there is another bit of Scheana news, in that she may have a potential new ally on the show.

Tom Sandoval & Ariana Madix

Vanderpump Rules stars Tom Sandoval and Jax Taylor have certainly had their fair share of ups and downs. They may always disagree on which one is the Number One Guy in the group, but, their friendship has remained strong in the face of some seriously awful occurrences. Who could forget the epic revelation in Season 2 that Jax had sex with Tom’s then-longtime girlfriend, Kristen Doute – twice. That storyline single-handedly made Pump Rules one of the most compelling shows on TV.

Jax’s propensity for spreading lies and throwing his friends under the bus is well known. For every time he’s been caught cheating, he has a story about one of the Tom’s cheating to deflect from his wrong-doing. How could we about forget Miami Girl? Or the time he left evidence of Tom Schwartz cheating open on his phone for Detective Doute to find? Bottom line, being friends with Jax seems exhausting.

Report: New TomTom Manager Allegedly Causes LOTS Of Drama In New Season Of Vanderpump Rules

Ah yes, it’s stuff like this that gives me hope! I think fans of Vanderpump Rules collectively agree the core cast needs a bit of… refreshment. We’ve enjoyed the cheating antics of Jax Taylor for many years. Viewers have always supported what amounts to Bravo’s healthiest relationship, Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz. But we grew weary from Katie Maloney’s constant angst. Or Kristen Doute’s latest ex-boyfriend obsession. And Scheana Marie’s endless cycle of dating can provide only so much entertainment.

But now we have a flicker of light! Some fresh meat! Season 8 is finally bringing on some new cast members and by all accounts, they are shaking things up. As the veteran stars find themselves getting married and buying houses, they might be aging out of the ability to carry drunken fights and random hook-ups. But don’t dry your tears on Jax’s impending AARP card, let’s look forward to the newbies! Word on the street is, there is a new manager in town. And according to reports, he likes to play dirty. ALLEGEDLY.
