Lala Kent

JAx Taylor buys an engagement ring

This season of Vanderpump Rules is opening on some strange notes, like the freestyle rappings of James Kennedy, and the scent of death and sadness mixed with the sticky spills of rose, goat cheese, and Jax Taylor‘s attempts to impersonate how he thinks a decent man should behave (tampon shopping!)

Immediately it becomes apparent that this will be another season of everyone villainzing James while pretending Jax is a new man as they plan his wedding to Brittany Cartwright. Forgiving Jax and hating James are literally the only subjects this show has anymore. And James, like the little whack-a-mole he is, will come back for hit after hit, cause he’s the White Kanye Baby and hits is what they do!

Far less frivolous are Lisa Vanderpump and Lala Kent dealing with painful losses in their lives. Lala’s father passed away from a stroke 2 months earlier, and she has inherited his mantra to be kind. Even to sketchy people. (Lest their names be James.) Lisa is mourning the loss of her brother, her only sibling, who committed suicide 5 weeks before filming started. Wow – that’s so devastating. 

Reality TV Listings - Vanderpump Rules Reunion

Bravo is giving out Christmas and Hanukkah gifts early this year because TONIGHT is the season premiere of Vanderpump Rules Season 7. Bring on the pasta – which is what it’s all about, right? Anyway, before we dive into a new season of super dramas, let’s revisit all the chaos from last season.

Without a doubt the three (or maybe four or possibly even 5) biggest dramas from last season were: Jax Taylor cheating on Brittany Cartwright, James Kennedy and Lala Kent ending their friendship accord over pasta (and Though Who Shall Not Be Called Anything Less Than Perfect, Randall Emmett), and Tom 1 & Tom 2 finally growing up to become bar owners with the opening of Tom Tom. Of course in between all that there were accusations that James cheated on Raquel Leviss with both his BFF Logan Noh and possibly Kristen Doute. Then there was Stassi Schroeder finally revealing PATRICK to the world… We wish she’d kept that shit covered. And of course, Scheana Marie had her Super ROB, ROB, ROB, ROB… This is the song that never ends.

SO let’s dive in.

Stassi-Schroeder-Book

It’s about time that Stassi Schroeder wrote a book. The Vanderpump Rules OG has blessed he fandom with iconic quotes and wisdom for years. Now it’s officially official. Stassi Schroeder is an author and her debut book will be available before you know it!

Thanksgiving Instagram Roundup- Teresa Giudice, Marlo Hampton, JWOWW, Lala Kent, & More!

It’s safe to assume that pretty much anyone reading this is thankful for reality television. This gratitude is probably applicable to reality TV Instagram posts as well. A lot of your favorite reality TV stars shared photos from their Thanksgiving celebrations and charity work.

Vanderpump Rules cast member Lala Kent and her man Randall Emmett gave out turkeys to those in need. New Jersey Housewives Teresa Giudice and Dolores Catania gave out turkeys in their local community as well. Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Marlo Hampton volunteered at the Women’s Community Kitchen.

There are some reality TV Thanksgiving gatherings that I wish were filmed. First and foremost, Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor, Stassi Schroeder, Brittany Cartwright, and Stassi’s man Beau Clark all spent Thanksgiving together. Stassi even joked on Instagram, “Why weren’t the cameras here?” Seriously though. That is a great question. Exes hanging out and actually being friends will forever fascinate me.

Speaking of exes, JWOWW and her ex Roger Mathews spent time with family on Thanksgiving. What is going on with the two of them? Are they just keeping it cordial for the sake of the kids? Are they repairing their romantic relationship? Either way, there were no smiles in the Instagram posts.

Southern Charm stars Kathryn Dennis shared a photo on Thanksgiving with her costar Austen Kroll. Who knew these two were such close friends? Southern Charm matriarch Patricia Altschul shared a picture from her Thanksgiving girls night out. Meanwhile Shep Rose spent some quality time with his mom and dad.

Don’t Be Tardy stars Brielle Biermann and Ariana Biermann posed for a sisters photo on Thanksgiving.

Black Friday Gift L

Now that Thanksgiving is over, it is officially Christmas and Hanukkah season! This means that Black Friday is upon us. Who wants to deal with that though? Enduring stop and go traffic, scrounging for a parking space, and sweating it up in a mall crowd does not sound appealing at all.

Skip all the hassle and just shop from home instead. That would make Black Friday way more enjoyable. Right? You can even purchase all reality TV-themed gifts for your friends, family, and even yourself. You deserve a gift too. If you don’t know what to get the reality TV addict in your life, don’t worry. Reality Tea has you covered with a great list of go-to products that are available from Amazon.

Hot Photos: 3rd Annual Vanderpump Dog Foundation Gala

Where in the world is Lisa Vanderpump? Last night was the 3rd Annual Vanderpump Dog Foundation Gala and it was a Bravolebrity magnet, except that Lisa was MIA again (at least on the red carpet)! (see update below)

Nearly all of Lisa’s Vanderpump Rules cast was there to celebrate: Kristen Doute and Brian Carter, Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor, Scheana Marie, Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark, Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz, Lala Kent and Randall Emmett and more! But no LVP from what we see in the agency pics.

Also there to take part in the event: Shahs of Sunset star MJ Javid and her husband Tommy Feight, former RHOC star Gretchen Rossi, former Flipping Out star Jenni Pulos. The Real Housewives of Dallas stars LeeAnne Locken and Kameron Westcott made the trek to Hollywood to support the cause. Even Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga turned up.

Kristen loves some crazy!

Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor’s engagement will be a major part of Vanderpump Rules Season 7. Their wedding is bound to be a central plotline of Season 8, or possibly their own spin-off special.

Will they have a wedding party full of Vanderpump Rules cast members? Maybe not the entire wedding party, but there’s bound to be a bunch of SURvers in the group.
