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!
A funny thing happened on the way to the altar. Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney were hitched in 2016. Their journey towards marriage was bumpy along the way, but the couple eventually worked through relationship issues. The wedding and reception were heavily featured on several episodes of Vanderpump Rules. In a magical wilderness setting, their true love was pledged as Lisa Vanderpump officiated the ceremony. Since that enchanting day, Tom and Katie have enjoyed the benefits of holy matrimony. Or have they?
Apparently the Bubbas forgot about a crucial part of getting married. The marriage license. Whoopsie! Lance Bass recently
followed orders outed the fact that Tom and Katie might not legally be Mr. and Mrs. Schwartzy. Now scandal is afoot as rumors emerge the happy couple is not officially married. Never fear, Katie and Tom have a solution! Come now, did you really think Brittany Cartwright would have all the matrimonial glory next season?
Minus the big events, like Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding in Kentucky, the Vanderpump Rules Season 8 details have remained under wraps. Well, minus the gossip that Lance Bass leaked the (alleged) status of Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s marriage.
Lance isn’t the only one leaking the Pump Rules news though. Or at least that is what it seems like. Did Lala Kent spill the beans about a new addition to the show? That’s up for interpretation at this point, but let’s get into the evidence.
There seems to be a lot of legal drama around the Los Angeles Bravolebrities these days. You’ve got the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ladies and their myriad of issues. Then you’ve got the Vanderpump Rules crew, whose legal woes are not quite at the same level of RHOBH
grifters stars. But just give it some time. Lala Kent and Randall Emmett are bound to have something up their sleeves. Just ask fofty.
Still, there are some recent issues. Jax Taylor allegedly owed a large amount in back taxes. Then Lisa Vanderpump’s bestie, Lance Bass, dropped the bomb that Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney are not legally married because they didn’t send in the right materials. I’m sure this caused Tequila Katie to come out of the shadows and rage text Lance all hours of the night to drop it and apologize. Unfortunately, the apology they received might not be what they had hoped for.
