As cringe-worthy as it is watching Scheana Marie fawn all over Rob Valletta on Vanderpump Rules knowing that they aren’t dating anymore, it really does make the show. Scheana’s constant bragging has blessed us all with some premium entertainment. I will never get over her revelation that she timed Rob hanging up a TV and that it only took him seven minutes. She even mentioned that their first daughter would be named Madison Marie Parks-Valletta.
For all I know, Scheana wasn’t actually talking about Rob 100% of the time and instead she was just bragging about him 95% of the time, or (hopefully) significantly less than that. With that said, I figured she would use post-filming interviews and social media to clarify her comments and try to seem less Rob-sessed, but that is not the case. Now Scheana admits that she had Rob on her mind on the same day that she married Mike Shay. Just twist that knife in further, Scheana.
I feel like everyone needs a friend like Tom Sandoval. He will give you makeover if you need one and cry tears of joy on your behalf and use a puppy as a handkerchief. Sure, he’s a little outrageous with the hair-braider and the costume guy on hand, but there’s nothing wrong with being extra. It’s better to be extra than not enough.
And at least Tom is extra and not desperate. There is a major difference. Faith Stowers, now that’s another story. She used to hook up with Lisa Vanderpump’s son Max Todd. She got with Jax Taylor (while he was dating Brittany Cartwright) and recorded a conversation between the two of them. Faith even claimed to have feelings for Lala Kent. In short, this woman was doing whatever- and (allegedly) whomever- she could to join this cast and she still couldn’t move past the back row in the Vanderpump Rules opening credits.
The tough thing about being on reality TV is that being open about your life often involves mentioning other people. So when Ariana Madix opened up about the lingering effects of a toxic relationship on Vanderpump Rules, she was trying to explain why she is the person she is today, but there’s no way to convey that without talking about her previous boyfriend.
Of course Ariana didn’t mention the man by name, but she is still nervous that the ex who referred to her vagina as “disgusting” is going to retaliate against her for being so open about her struggles and the impact of that relationship on her current one with live-in boyfriend Tom Sandoval.
The thirst is just too real with Faith Stowers. The Vanderpump Rules extra is dehydrated in her quest for attention. After hooking up with Jax Taylor MONTHS AGO while he was still dating Brittany Cartwright, she keeps adding even more details to the story.
Is she just trying to extend her fifteen minutes of fame or is she just trying to share “her truth”?
More than a week later, I still can’t get over Tom Schwartz shutting down Scheana Marie and referring to her as a “wannabe Kardashian” two episodes ago on Vanderpump Rules. This man never gets involved in the social drama and I am still laughing at that insult. Plus, it was nice to see him standing up for his wife Katie Maloney for a change.
Even so, Schwartz is such a nice guy that I’m sure he felt guilty about insulting Scheana. Schwartz and Katie discussed the latest Vanderpump Rules drama when they appeared on Watch What Happens Live last night.
2017 has been a banner year for the cursed reality TV marriage. It seemed like every time we blinked another reality star filed for divorce!
Some were predictable (ahem Luann de Lesseps and Shannon Beador), while others came as a complete surprise (like Little Women: LA‘s Briana Renee FINALLY kicking sleazy Matt Ericson to the curb or Dr. Jackie Walter‘s husband being caught cheating). And in the middle there were a whole host of other unlucky in love really stars. Including a who a few who actually tied the knot ON TV – only to split in front of the cameras as well.
Below is our rundown of 2017’s reality star divorces. Here’s hoping for many less in 2018!
When Vanderpump Rules first started it was essentially the “Stassi Schroeder & Jax Taylor Show.” That first season was nothing short of iconic. Now, the show is more of an ensemble, so it’s easy to forget that Stassi and Jax used to date when there are 993,343 other cast members and they almost never have any scenes together. At the same time, their old relationship put the show on the map, so it will always be ingrained in my mind. It just feels like it happened a whole lifetime ago.
Now Stassi is good friends with Jax’s current girlfriend Brittany Cartwright, which sounds so weird, but everyone loves Brittany, so that isn’t at all surprising. So it will be very interesting to get Stassi’s take on Jax’s decision to cheat on Brittany with Vanderpump Rulers hanger-on Faith Stowers. She is Jax’s ex, Brittany’s friend, and now after all this time, she’s actually Jax’s friend as well. Yes, you read that correctly: Jax and Stassi are getting along.
