Is it January yet? I cannot wait for the return of Vanderpump Rules. Season 8 is definitely going to make up for the lackluster Season 7. The first trailer looked great, the new people seem dramatic, and I am so pumped (pun intended).
The fans at BravoCon were blessed with an additional Season 8 supertease and I can tell you with confidence that Season 8 is going to be nothing short of amazing.
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.
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.
Wow Lauren, did things get too hot? It looks like Vanderpump Rules star, Lala Kent is finally in a good mood. Why else would she send words of glad tidings towards the man who essentially gave us all petty goals? Yes, Lala is talking about 50 Cent, again.
Someone must have gotten in trouble! Lala has given us songs. Lala has given us face. And Lala given us way too many details. It was those details that sparked a major row between the former (?) SUR hostess and Fofty. Fiancé Randall Emmett was dragged into it as well. He ultimately wound up in the hospital for
being a scaredy cat chest pains. The incident was resolved after Randall paid an outstanding debt to Fofty. All was well in the land until Lala started talking smack about Fofty to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. Now in an effort to keep Lala quiet put the whole thing to bed, Lala and Her Chins Man have some new words for the entrepreneur.
Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent has just achieved a major life milestone. She has been alcohol-free for a year straight. This is isn’t something that the viewers have seen on the show yet, but anyone who follows Lala in-between seasons is aware of her quest for sobriety.
On the Season 7 reunion, Lala told a story about drinking so much at Disney with her fiance Randall Emmett and his children that she didn’t remember any of the trip. Presumably, Lala’s sobriety will be a part of her Season 8 storyline
since she never shares much from her personal life.
Well, this comes as a surprise to exactly no one. Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright were wed in holy matrimony this past summer. Lucky for us, we will get the chance to see this blessed event on the upcoming season of Vanderpump Rules. Yes guys and gals, Brit finally got her man – and most of her bridesmaids had her man too. It was a wedding party only Jesus could love!
Brittany and Jax have certainly weathered many storms on the road to wedded bliss. There was the time Jax lied about flirting with Lala Kent and threw her under the bus. And we cannot forget the trashtastic liaison Jax had with Faith Stowers, a thirsty SUR waitress. But Jax is a changed man! Gone are the days of his transient indiscretions! His slate has been wiped clean by God and Brittany’s short term memory. If only that were the case. Now we are finding out that there is some wiggle room in Jax and Brittany’s unbreakable bond, and it’s totally fine – as long as Jax approves of the wiggler.
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.
I’m not gonna lie, the 50 Cent vs. Lala Kent and Randall Emmett feud was very entertaining. At first. Now, I’m just over it. When 50 Cent called out Randall for a $1 million dollar debt and came for Lala’s gold digging antics I set post alerts on Instagram just to keep up. When Randall was so nervous that he was allegedly hospitalized for some health concerns and referred to the rapper as “Fofty” it was nothing short of iconic. 50 even had t-shirts made with screenshots from the texts.
It all came to a close when Randall got 50 the cash
and found someone else to borrow money from to charter private jets for Lala. It was all good. 50 had no interest in rekindling a friendship with Randall, but he stopped his internet attack.
That was until Lala opened her mouth during a recent Watch What Happens Live appearance. She claimed that she “dinged” 50’s ego and that she had receipts, which she never showed or elaborated on. Word got back to 50 and he went in on Lala’s sobriety and Randall’s
quadruple double chin in some Instagram posts. Lala started this, but she did not know what she got herself into. Clearly. Now, Randall “My Man” Emmett is begging 50 Cent to end the war.
