Most Housewives don’t miss the opportunity to invite the whole cast for an over-the-top themed birthday party. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case for Lisa Vanderpump this year. Yes, she had a luxurious (but casual by Lisa standards) birthday celebration this year, but there weren’t any Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast members in sight during her birthday party this year (at least that we see on social media).
Based on social media, it looks like Lisa kept the birthday celebrations to family and close friends. She spent time with her husband Ken Todd, daughter Pandora Vanderpump, her nephews, her dogs, and longtime friend Mohamed Hadid.
The rumor was that Dorit adopted a dog from Vanderpump Dog Foundation and returned it to a shelter, which offended Lisa. We all know how Lisa gets about her dogs. Mistreating a dog is probably the easiest way to upset her.
Hopefully, the ladies step it up next season and restore the show to its former glory. It’s unclear what exactly is happening for Season 9, but one major plot point is clear: the ladies take a cast trip to the Bahamas.
Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder visited Amanda Batula (and presumably the rest of the Summer House cast) in the Hamptons. New York Housewife Ramona Singer shared her own photos from her latest Hamptons weekend.
The TomTom Junior Partner took his fandom to the next level by purchasing a portrait of Lisa….with her dog Giggy Vanderpump…. made out of candy. Yes, this is actually something that happened. Now I just want to know what Lisa thinks of the artwork and how Schwartz’s wife Katie Maloney feels about the purchase.
To put it mildly, Lisa Vanderpump has not been Jax Taylor’s biggest fan throughout the years. As an executive producer on Vanderpump Rules, she benefits from his antics and scandals, but the same can’t be said when it comes to Jax “working” at her restaurant.
She has always given Jax second, third, fourth, and seventy-seventh chances, but even she wasn’t endeared to him when he cheated on his now-fiancee Brittany Cartwright last season. Lisa has said many times over that Brittany is “too good for Jax” and she “fired” him from SUR during the Season 6 finale. So that begs the question, what does Lisa think about Jax and Brittany’s impending marriage?
During the Season 6 finale of Vanderpump Rules, Lisa Vanderpump asked Jax Taylor to quit SUR. Most likely Jax has more than enough money to survive considering that he’s been carrying this show with his antics from Day 1. Not only that, but he’s also taking in that Instagram ad money. With that said, Lisa asking Jax to quit working at a restaurant right before filming ended sounded like a pretty good proposition to me. He gets the time off and he doesn’t have to “work” when he (most likely) has the funds to maintain his lifestyle. There’s no chance in hell that Jax “quitting” SUR actually meant that he wouldn’t be on the show. No matter what happened, he would still be the self-proclaimed “number one guy in this group.”
He was going to return for Season 7 in one way or another. Now there are reports that Jax is working at Tom Tom- the restaurant that Lisa and Ken Todd are opening with Tom Sandovaland Tom Schwartzas junior partners. Jax famously only knows how to make a vodka cranberry when he’s behind the bar, so he probably wasn’t at the top of the potential bartenders list. Even so, there isn’t a controversy that Jax is a bartender at the new restaurant. Maybe he’s applying his skills elsewhere? I can’t help expecting a contrived story line with Tom and Tom “hiring” Jax without Lisa’s approval.
