Pump Rules

Leah McSweeney Real Housewives Of New York

Real Housewives of New York newbie Leah McSweeney is an outspoken and long-time supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement. She has supported the cause on her social media and has attended protests. The RHONY star also took part in the Bravo special “Race in America: A Movement Not a Moment.”

Right now, reality television is being swept by the cancel culture movement. Vanderpump Rules stars Kristen DouteStassi Schroeder, Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens recently won pink slips for past racist behavior.

Vanderpump Rules Danica Dow

We didn’t get to see much of Danica Dow’s relationship with her man Brett Willis on Vanderpump Rules last season. That makes sense since there were 13,000 cast members on the show. Nevertheless, there is a lot of drama to cover when it comes to this on-again-off-again couple.

Last week, legal documents surfaced highlighting some major drama between Danica and Brett. She claimed that he broke into her house and cut up her belongings. He had a totally different story though. And now, he’s throwing some accusations her way.

Tom Schwartz Vanderpump Rules

In the wake of the Blake Lives Matter movement, Vanderpump Rules axed four of its cast members in June of 2020 for racially insensitive behavior. Kristen Doute, Stassi Schroeder, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni were all given the boot.

In January of 2020, racially insensitive social media posts made by Brett and Max in the past resurfaced. The Pump Rules newbies both apologized, but it was much too little, and much too late.

Lala Kent Is Not Opposed To Faith Returning To Vanderpump Rules

Honest question: when it comes to Vanderpump Rules, what’s next? We all know that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute and two other guys no one cares about are gone. Rather, fired for racist behavior. And while fans were calling for Jax Taylor to be fired along with them, looks like he’s not going anywhere.

Lala Kent is sticking around too, as annoying as she can be. I’m guessing next season will focus more around her and fiancé, Randall Emmett. I mean honestly, we can’t watch another whole season of Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney killing their pets, can we? But Lala and Randall already postponed their wedding due to coronavirus. So maybe by the time they start filming, things will have changed. And clearly, VPR is all aboard the filmed wedding train. Yes, we have gone from drunken fights in parking lots to….planning weddings. We’ve come a long way, but maybe a little too long if you catch my drift.

Porsha Williams Kandi Burruss

Simply put, 2020 has sucked. I don’t think anyone can really dispute that. But from the chaos of everything going on, something good has come out of it all. The discussion surrounding race in America.

This year’s reckoning of Bravo stars was just one step forward. Forcing the Vanderpump Rules cast to take responsibility for racist behavior was shocking to many, but absolutely necessary. Seeing some of our favorites, like Porsha Williams and Braunwyn Windham-Burke, calling for justice was inspiring.

Vanderpump Rules Lala Kent

A couple weeks ago, Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent deleted all photos of Randall Emmett for attention. She also posted some quotes related to Alcoholics Anonymous. People put those things together and assumed she and Randall split up.

However, that’s not the case, because, well, she gets no money if they split up before getting married they’re still going strong. Even though Lala and Randall don’t follow each other Instagram and they’ve actually had each other blocked for years, it just felt like such a grab for media attention, which she got. Yes, we wrote up a story on this. Well, now, Lala and Randall are opening up about why she deleted all those photos and it’s just peak-level petty.

James Kennedy Lisa Vanderpump

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills OG Lisa Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd are being sued by a former (and super short-lived) employee (who worked there for months) for unpaid wages… again. If you recall, another former employee sued the couple with similar claims in January 2020.

It’s been a rough time with the restaurants for the entrepreneurial couple. Lisa expressed concerns that her restaurants will close amid the coronavirus pandemic. And, then, Villa Blanca shut down, but, apparently, that has more to do with a lease ending than anything else… supposedly. Although things seem to be tough on the business front, some of the Vanderpump Rules cast members have Lisa’s back in response to the latest lawsuit against her and Ken.

Vanderpump Rules Danica Dow

When Vanderpump Rules viewers first met Danica Dow last season, she was venting about getting suspended as the assistant manager of SUR after she fought her on-again-off-again boyfriend Brett Willis after he suggested having a threesome.

That sounded like the beginning of an interesting storyline. However, we pretty much only saw Danica serve as a sounding board for Dayna Kathan’s love triangle and whatever Scheana Shay had going on throughout thee season. Yeah, she got into that fight during the season finale and she had that beef with recently fired cast member Max Boyens. However, other than that, her scenes were seemingly left on the cutting room floor.
