You know that old saying, “don’t bite the hand that feeds you”? It looks like the main players on the Vanderpump Rules stage missed that one. Fans of the show have enjoyed watching people test relationship boundaries, become obsessed with former loves, and make poor decisions in general. Luckily for stars like Stassi Schroeder, Ariana Madix, and Kristen Doute, they have been afforded the benefit of making a hefty salary in the process.
Now the once young, attractive, eager-to-achieve-stardom crew have matured into, well, older versions of what they were before. The difference is they are currently doing it with the ability to purchase $2 million dollar homes. This is thanks to Lisa Vanderpump, because, after all, she hired them in the first place. She even went so far as to partner up with two of the show’s veterans, Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz to open the stunning TomTom. One might assume they would be grateful for the opportunities Lisa has given them. One might assume they would appreciate not having to work paycheck to paycheck at a 9 to 5 job. And one might assume they would appreciate the benefits of fame that were basically SURved to them on a silver platter. Well, my friends, one might be wrong…
This season of Vanderpump Rules is opening on some strange notes, like the freestyle rappings of James Kennedy, and the scent of death and sadness mixed with the sticky spills of rose, goat cheese, and Jax Taylor‘s attempts to impersonate how he thinks a decent man should behave (tampon shopping!)
Immediately it becomes apparent that this will be another season of everyone villainzing James while pretending Jax is a new man as they plan his wedding to Brittany Cartwright. Forgiving Jax and hating James are literally the only subjects this show has anymore. And James, like the little whack-a-mole he is, will come back for hit after hit, cause he’s the White Kanye Baby and hits is what they do!
Far less frivolous are Lisa Vanderpump and Lala Kent dealing with painful losses in their lives. Lala’s father passed away from a stroke 2 months earlier, and she has inherited his mantra to be kind. Even to sketchy people. (Lest their names be James.) Lisa is mourning the loss of her brother, her only sibling, who committed suicide 5 weeks before filming started. Wow – that’s so devastating.
Vanderpump Rules fans and cast members, along with all of West Hollywood and several other reality stars, celebrated last night as Tom Tom opens officially!
Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz, along with Lisa Vanderpump, welcomed guests to their new bar as they hosted a summer party for Daily Mail.
Among the reality stars who turned up to check out the new venture: the Vanderpump Rules cast, Dorinda Medley, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, Reza Farahan, Blac Chyna and so many more! Even Ladies of London star Sophie Stanbury came over to check things out! (Sidenote: we really, really miss that show!) See the photos from Tom Tom down below in the gallery! Who had the best look of the night?
It was a big weekend for the Vanderpump Rules gang! First Jax and Brittany got engaged, then everyone headed over to SUR to celebrate PRIDE with an 80’s-themed party!
Newbie Adam Spott, who is on board for a much needed infusion of hotness this season, was there to mix it up with the veterans. Stassi Schroeder brought her new boyfriend, Beau, and they worked roller skates.
A slew of reality stars showed up to support Lisa Vanderpump as she celebrated the 2nd annual Vanderpump Dogs Foundation Gala at Taglyan Cultural Complex in Hollywood. Among her co-stars and friends in attendance: Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor, James Kennedy, Scheana Marie (with on-again boyfriend Robert Valletta), Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix, as well as former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Joyce Giraud. She also drew support from other Real Housewives including Dolores Catania, Kameron Westcott, Melissa Gorga and more!
Lisa Vanderpump shared on Instagram about the gala: “Still reeling from our @VanderpumpDogs Gala. What an incredibly meaningful and memorable night, where friends, family and activists came together with one goal- to create a better world for dogs.”
Lisa Vanderpump had a lot of support last night in L.A. as she premiered the new “The Road to Yulin and Beyond” documentary, held at Regal LA Live Stadium 14. Lisa’s co-stars on both The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules showed up for the event. The premiere was part of the Awareness Film Festival opening night.
Among Lisa’s friends, family and co-workers in attendance: Kyle Richards, Camille Grammer, Katie Maloney, Lisa Rinna, Tom Sandoval and more. See them all down below in the gallery.
Also out and about this week: Val Chmerkovskiy, Sonja Morgan, Cheryl Burke and many others!
Lisa Vanderpump‘s mission to make life better for our four legged friends continues. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star celebrated the second annual World Dog Day yesterday, along with some of the Vanderpump Rules cast (they’re currently filming) and even a few Little Women: LA stars stopped by.
Lisa was joined by James Kennedy, Christy McGinty, Todd Gibel and even controversial Little Women: LA “cast sidekick” Plastic Martyr was photographed at the event.
Just in case her lifestyle wasn’t fabulous enough, Lisa Vanderpump is adding a little more glitz and glam to her repertoire! The restaurant owner, philanthropist, and star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been named Editor In Chief of the luxury magazine, Beverly Hills Lifestyle.
Lisa, who’s been involved with the magazine for seven years, says she loves writing, “as my fans know from my blogs,” and that her tenure as Editor In Chief is “going to be a passion project for me.” Beverly Hills Lifestyle caters to a readership who are interested in the finer points of travel, food, fashion, and “luxury lifestyle” (hey, Kyle Richards – they stole your mojo!).
