We’ve seen a lot of changes coming out of Vanderpump Rules since filming stopped this year. After firing Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute, the show seemed destined to fade. But then came the baby explosion, thanks for a very real pregnancy pact by the ladies on the show.
Stassi announced her pregnancy. Then came Lala Kent revealing she’s pregnant. Next was Brittany Cartwright, who is by far my least favorite pregnant person if you check out her ultra-annoying Instagram. Finally, after a heartbreaking miscarriage, Scheana Shay is finally having her happy ending with a pregnancy of her own. Even Katie Maloney and forever-bum husband, Tom Schwartz are trying to have a kid.
Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent and her man Randall Emmett have mostly been in the news as of late due to Lala’s growing baby bump. Lala proudly announced she and the rest of the Pump Rules crew made a pregnancy pact, and so far she, Stassi Schroeder, and Brittany Cartwright have kept their word. All three are pregnant, and are now pushing for Katie Maloney to join the fold.
Lala, of course, has also been busy getting into fights online. Her on again off again friendship with Scheana Marie is now off again. Scheana accused Lala of not supporting her during her miscarriage, and Lala denies all wrong doing. Lala also got into the middle of a feud between Real Housewives of Orange County stars Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke. Perhaps Lala should instead start focusing on fixing troubles closer to home. And that trouble would be with Randall.
Real Housewives of Salt Lake City made its debut, and I am here for it! I love the new faces, diversity, and fresh location.
A couple of the RHOSLC ladies already stand out, and Whitney Rose is one of them. During the premiere, Whitney renewed her vows with her husband, Justin Rose, to celebrate 10 years of marriage.
The off-screen drama between Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke is heating up. They unfollowed each other on Instagram, which isn’t the biggest deal. Braunwyn claimed that Kelly and Emily Simpson unfollowed her because of their different political beliefs.
Kelly slammed Braunwyn for traveling all over during a pandemic, without her seven kids. She also said that the kids spend much more time with the nanny than they do with Braunwyn. She called Braunwyn a “poser” and a “loser” who’s “never done anything in her life.” The latest? Kelly shared photos of Braunwyn’s license plates and raised questions about Braunwyn doing something shady with her taxes since she lives in California, but she has Florida plates. In response, social media users accused Kelly of doxxing Braunwyn. Now, Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent is chiming in because, well, she knows a thing or two about slamming a co-star on social media. Just ask Scheana Shay. She’s been on the receiving end of Lala’s vitriol, plenty of times.
Since two thirds of the Witches of WeHo have been fired from Vanderpump Rules, things have been changing pretty fast for the whole cast. Stassi Schroeder announced she was pregnant at the apex of the VPR shake-up and married Beau Clark. Following soon after, Lala Kent announced that her and Randall Emmett are also expecting, and so are Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor. Most recently, in October, Scheana Shay announced she was pregnant, after miscarrying earlier this year.
Stassi, Lala, Scheana, and Brittany each had gender reveals. Everyone aside from Brittany and Jax are expecting baby girls. Fast forward to season 45 of Pump Rules where Jason Cauchi Jr. is tattooing Stassi’s daughter’s name on his ass. Aside from Kristen Doute and Ariana Madix, the only veteran cast member not pregnant is Katie Maloney.
We are only one episode into Real Housewives of Salt Lake City and I am already way more invested than I ever expected to be. If you haven’t started watching yet, please do so immediately (well, after you’re done reading this article).
Whoever did the casting for this show deserves a raise. There is no filler in this cast. Every single one of them has a good storyline both within the group and on her own. I am already so interested and beyond ready for more.
Last season on Real Housewives of New York, Sonja Morgan, Dorinda Medley, and Ramona Singer couldn’t handle the fact that Leah McSweeney had some tattoos. When Sonja heard about Leah’s tramp stamp she quipped, “That’s so when they have sex behind you, they remember who you are.”
Sonja said that it “says something negative about her.” Sonja even claimed that she doesn’t have sex with people who have tattoos,
which I highly doubt. When Tinsley Mortimer said that she has a tattoo, Sonja told her that “no one is going to f*ck” her with that there. Ouch! That’s actually so mean, but not nearly as sharp as the daggers Dorinda threw at Tinsley all year long.
Did y’all watch the premiere of Real Housewives of Salt Lake City? I don’t mean to get ahead of myself but is this a possible new favorite franchise? It had it all! The new cast was interesting and fresh. They all have different backgrounds and stories. Hell, they even kicked off the first episode with a fight over someone smelling like a hospital. Truly. What a gem.
One of the cast members that immediately stood out was Whitney Rose. Her deal is that her and her much older husband got kicked out of the Mormon Church for having an affair when they were both married. Juicy. I’m actually a little surprised Whitney was so forthcoming about the whole thing. But it turns out, she has a little help navigating her new life in front of the Bravo cameras.
