Last week’s episode of Vanderpump Rules was pretty heated. The countdown to Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding is taking forever and on top of that, they hired a (seemingly) homophobic pastor to officiate the ceremony. Once some of his social media posts went public, Brittany denied that he was “that way” during a flashback clip that was shared during last week’s episode.
However, Lisa Vanderpump had a talk with Jax and Brittany about the man and then they left him the dust, asking Lance Bass to officiate instead. Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix couldn’t believe that it took Jax and Brittany so long to change their decision. Meanwhile, everyone else seemed to be walking on eggshells, afraid to upset their precious Brittany and Jax before their wedding. Apparently, that wasn’t completely the case though, at least according to Stassi Schroeder.
Star of Vanderpump Rules and avoider of all things dramatic, Jax Taylor, had a moment. Viewers are currently enjoying Jax and Brittany Cartwright’s journey to
their first divorce marital bliss. On the last episode, the main topic of conversation was the controversial social media posts Brittany and Jax’s chosen wedding officiant had written. Lisa Vanderpump was horrified and made it her duty to “inform” the happy couple their pastor was not exactly accepting of a homosexual lifestyle. And what would Pump Rules be without every other cast member talking about it as well?
While most disagree with the pastor’s negative statements towards the gay community, Brittany and Jax took a lot of heat for not replacing him sooner. Tom Sandoval was particularly vocal, as he has long been a supporter of LGBTQ rights. Recently, the general manager of Tom Tom and Sandoval’s buddy Max Boyens found himself in the hot seat for sketchy sentiments as well. Yet Tom’s reaction to Max’s past indiscretions were written off as “youthful mistakes”. Jax took to Twitter to share his frustrations, and he did not hold back.
To quote the immortal N’Sync, whose reputation is sullied by an unfortunate association with Vanderpump Rules, “I know that I can’t take no more, It ain’t no lie, I want to see you out that door, Baby bye bye bye.” And yes, I have had enough!
More than enough of Bravo claiming to support human rights and equality, yet, at every turn employing people who are misogynistic, racist, bigoted, and homophobic. I’ve certainly had enough of Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright. I’ve never cared about their love. Which seemed about as deep and stable as a damp cardboard box that Amazon left on your porch while you were crashing at your Tinder hookup’s place (basically Scheana Marie‘s version of marriage).
I’ve never had any interest in their greasy, fishy proposal. Or their Pinterest FAILED IT wedding planning. I can’t with Brittany’s increasingly amped up southern drawl and raspy cackle, or the way she douses herself in tequila like it really can kill off STDs (or kill off the lurking knowledge that her marriage to Jax is fake, and that he will always and forever cheat).
Reality TV veteran Faith Stowers is pregnant with her first child!
The former Vanderpump Rules cast member shared the news herself via Instagram on September 5.
Bravo announced last week that two new Housewives were joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills next season–actress Garcelle Beauvais and party planner Sutton Stracke. It makes you wonder–does it take two Housewives to replace one departed Lisa Vanderpump?
All during Season 9, rumors were flying about whether or not Lisa would be returning for Season 10. Of course, Lisa announced before the reunion that she would not be returning for another year of castmate torture. Vanderpump fans everywhere were quick to blame her co-stars for her departure. If long-time Vanderpump friend Lance Bass had his way, however, Lisa would have left the show prior to last season.
Brittany Cartwright first showed up on Vanderpump Rules as a just another in a long, long line of Jax Taylor’s
conquests love interests. She drove from Kentucky to California, her car stuffed to the brim with crop tops, beer cheese, and dogs the approximate size of small rats to join the staff at SUR. Brittany is kind of like the epitome of a modern day fairy tale – from Hooters waitress to reality tv persona!
Personally, I didn’t expect Brittany to last as many seasons as she has. Mostly because Jax is gross and can’t keep it in his pants. And he kind of seems like a jerk. I thought she’d high-tail it back down South and immediately marry a good ole’ Kentucky boy, and they would ride off together on the back of his John Deere to make gorgeous, unintelligible babies together. Honestly, have you ever heard a little kid with a thick Southern accent? It’s like listening to a baby Martian. Super cute, but I have no idea what they are saying.
Minus the exclusion of one British DJ and his girlfriend, most of the Vanderpump Rules cast got along during Season 7. Not-so-coincidentally, it was the least eventful season so far. It’s great that everyone is settling down and moving into houses in the Valley, but that doesn’t sound like exciting TV to me.
Well, apparently the Pump Rules crew is making up for the Season 7 snooze. Or at least that’s what it seems like based on social media. Jax Taylor appears to be on the outs with Tom Sandoval, one of two best men in his very recent wedding. He’s also not following Kristen Doute, Ariana Madix, and Scheana Marie, who were his wife Brittany Cartwright’s bridesmaids. Again, this wedding happened at the end of June. How did things change so much in such a short span of time? Or was this wedding weekend just a complete sh*t show full of drama?
Remember when Vanderpump Rules used to be about friends getting drunk and sleeping with one another? Now that most of the cast have significant others, legally or otherwise, the conflicts have taken a different turn. Have we seen the last of Jax Taylor and his promiscuous ways? Is Kristen Doute no longer stalking her ex-boyfriends? Has Katie Maloney put down the tequila bottle forever? With all of the “adulting” going on, you have to wonder if the show has lost it’s edge. Sure, next season we will get fancy houses and more weddings than we asked for, but do we really want that from Pump Rules?
At any rate, you might be aware the friends are feuding again. Stassi Schroeder stopped looking at her engagement ring long enough to admit this season’s drama is “killing her”. She’s not talking to Kristen anymore, basically shunning her to Scheana Marie Island. Bille Lee has left the scene entirely, though
no one really cares her storylines only revolved around being unliked. Last week we found out Kristen, Tom Sandoval, and Ariana Madix’s new face unfollowed Jax on social media. Now we might have the reason behind the blowout. In an interesting departure from the norm, this argument involves a servant of God. Kind of. And on the fifth day, the Lord said, give them petty!
