Unfortunately, Sherri is in the hospital once again.
Vanderpump Rules was once the best show on Bravo. Of course, THAT’S MY OPINION!!! (Trademark Tamra Judge). But seriously, it was! Who would have thought following hot Survers around a sexy unique restaurant would have been a good idea? Lisa Vanderpump – that’s who. The woman is some sort of Bobby Fischer genius reality TV Svengali.
LVP didn’t write the whole story, but she knew Scheana Marie’s affair with Brandi Glanville’s D-List ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian, would be the crossover of crossovers. Season after season the Pump Rules cast never stopped surprising us with their awful misdeeds and sometimes instant confessions. The content was wild and entertaining. But under the surface were some harsh truths and finally, this year, there was a reckoning. Day one stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired for racist actions. Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were fired for using racial slurs. Now that the “reality” of these personas has been exposed, where does it go from here?
2020 is not going the way that any of us envisioned, especially Stassi Schroeder. The former Vanderpump Rules queen bee got fired for her years of racist behaviors and remarks (which were in addition to her Nazi comparisons and #MeToo criticisms). Her dream wedding in Italy got postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic, but at least she’s in a better financial situation than most coronavirus brides right now.
Vanderpump Rules is in its off season and not currently filming. But that hasn’t stopped the franchise from churning out nonstop news stories about the cast.
Everyone knows about the epic firing of Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute. Some thought that would be enough to tank the show in general. But the cast (and former cast) seems to have other plans to stay relevant, even if the show doesn’t come back. And what would those plans be? PREGNANCY. As in, everyone is pregnant. Stassi was first, quickly followed by Lala Kent’s announcement. Then came Brittany Cartwright’s own surprise.
Even though the latest season of Vanderpump Rules has yet to start filming, Lala Kent has been all over the news as of late. Lala recently announced her pregnancy, and she’s having a girl! Now she has officially joined the VPR baby boom with her friends Stassi Schroeder and Brittany Cartwright who are also both expecting. It’s too bad camera’s aren’t rolling to capture Lala and the gang as they go through the ups and downs of pregnancy.
If cameras were rolling however, Stassi wouldn’t be there. She got fired this year for racist behavior, along with Kristen Doute. With a good portion of the OG’s gone, the question remains if Lala or the rest of the group will want to come back to the show as well. And will being pregnant determine Lala’s decision on whether she wants to be a part of Pump Rules next season?
The friends that dumped her? This is what hope looks like, you guys. But hey, it’s 2020 and I think we can all use
a laugh some optimism. Kristen Doute never had an easy ride on Vanderpump Rules. While she was firmly entrenched in the Witches of WeHo coven, she was also expendable. But sleeping with your best friend’s ex-boyfriend on your current boyfriend’s couch isn’t the best way to prove your loyalty. Kristen will never be the #1 girl in this group.
Kristen was fired from Pump Rules, along with Stassi Schroeder. They filed a false police report against the chick Jax Taylor used as a straycation from Brittany Cartwright. The fate of the show returning is currently with the Bravo gods, but the cast has taken a hit. A program that revolves around a restaurant in the midst of a pandemic might be a goner. That said, SUR has reopened for business, which means filming could potentially resume. Now Kristen says she hopes the show does not return at all, because she’s anxious to make a television comeback.
Some Vanderpump Rules fans are relieved that the show isn’t filming yet so we can avoid a baby-centered season full of gender reveals and other pre-birth events. Others are bummed that we are missing out on the life milestones of cast members we have been following for years.
Nevertheless, the VanderBUMP Rules/Vanderpump Drools/Vanderparents club is going strong with the social media activity, planted stories (cough cough Stassi Schroeder), and interviews about their pregnancies. Thanks to her fiancé Randall Emmett, Lala Kent has been
social climbing with celebrities interacting with actual celebrities. She’s taken her thirst so far that She has become so close with some of these stars that she might have an actual celebrity deliver her child.
The fate of Vanderpump Rules has remained in limbo since the coronavirus pandemic halted production. Pump Rules star Katie Maloney hasn’t heard a peep about the show’s status. The June firings of Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder for racist behavior was long overdue, but still a shock.
In February of 2020, James Kennedy’s wish finally came true and he once again slid into SUR for his Tuesday night DJ gig. What is even more surprising is that his longtime enemy Katie sent her well wishes.
