We are already a few weeks into the Below Deck season and are starting to get a read on the new crew. It appears that at least a few of the crew members will be stirring up high seas drama. Chef Kevin Dobson has already raised the ire of chief stew Kate Chastain by calling her out for poor service at the first crew meeting. No good can come of that! Plus, Kevin has already stirred up a full season of drama in just two episodes with his intestinal issues. Pity the poor charter guests who are now watching the show knowing that he prepared their food!
Crabby third stew Courtney Skippon whines more than any crew member I have ever seen. What’s so bad about being on a yacht making great money in beautiful Thailand? It’s not like you are serving time in a Russian prison, Courtney! You have to wonder what it would be like to be Captain Lee Rosbach and have to deal with some of these characters. What would happen if he could pick his own dream crew for Below Deck?
After last week’s incredibly cringeworthy Real Housewives of Orange County episode, we all need a palate cleanser. Let’s check in with
Fancy Pants Heather Dubrow and see what she’s up to. Since leaving RHOC, Heather has kept busy with her enormous house. You might have seen Heather and husband, Dr. Terry Dubrow, selling their skincare line on QVC. She also hosts her own podcast called, Heather Dubrow’s World.
All of that along with wrangling her four children is a lot. Now we mustn’t forget that Heather is first and foremost an actress! Why, she’s been on Malibu Country! Sadly, that show ended in 2013. Heather even had a part on Hot In Cleveland! Unfortunately, that show’s final episode aired in 2015. So what else has been keeping the former Housewife busy? If you guessed stand-up comedy, you might be right!
Peace and harmony amongst the Vanderpump Rules Witches of WeHo trio of Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute and Katie Maloney was bound to end at some point. We’ve seen the three at odds many times before. For instance, when Kristen admitted to sleeping with Stassi’s ex-boyfriend, Jax Taylor. Or when Stassi treated Katie and Kristen like crap, moved to New York to be with Patrick Meagher, and then came groveling back when she couldn’t make it on her own.
However, the trio was in a good place last season. The only hitch happened to be Kristen’s
deadbeat boyfriend Brian Carter. Stassi and Katie made it loud and clear they felt Brian was taking advantage of Kristen, but Kristen wasn’t having it. Still, everything seemed fine between them. Until the past several months, that is.
When Vanderpump Rules resident bad
boy man Jax Taylor lost his father to cancer, it was a moment that profoundly changed him. Jax’s shared that his father, Ronald Cauchie, lost his battle and passed away in December of 2017.
Jax had the full support of his Vanderpump Rules co-stars as he faced this tremendous loss. On December 28, 2017 Jax tweeted, “My heart is broken, I lost my best friend and the best man I have ever met last night, I love you so much dad I can’t even breathe anymore, only person not letting me fall right now is my amazing girlfriend. I love you dad.”
The first season of the Temptation Island reboot was a hit. So, of course, the show is coming back for round 2! Plenty of reality TV stars got together to celebrate at the Temptation Island Season 2 premiere.
White Kanye himself, Vanderpump Rules star James Kennedy DJ’ed the party. His girlfriend Raquel Leviss was also on hand to support. Imagine if those two were actually a part of the Temptation Island cast. That would be some must-see TV. The Bella Twins, Nikki and Brie Bella also hopped in the DJ booth at the event. Season 1 couple Shari Ligons and Javen Butler showed up to support Season 2. They are the only couple from the first season that is actually still together. They got engaged during the finale. Season 1’s Kaci Campbell was also there among the Real Housewives, members of Bachelor nation, and other reality TV stars. It is probably such a relief for Kaci to not be a part of the drama this time around. She really went through it last season.
Well, this comes as a surprise to exactly no one. Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright were wed in holy matrimony this past summer. Lucky for us, we will get the chance to see this blessed event on the upcoming season of Vanderpump Rules. Yes guys and gals, Brit finally got her man – and most of her bridesmaids had her man too. It was a wedding party only Jesus could love!
Brittany and Jax have certainly weathered many storms on the road to wedded bliss. There was the time Jax lied about flirting with Lala Kent and threw her under the bus. And we cannot forget the trashtastic liaison Jax had with Faith Stowers, a thirsty SUR waitress. But Jax is a changed man! Gone are the days of his transient indiscretions! His slate has been wiped clean by God and Brittany’s short term memory. If only that were the case. Now we are finding out that there is some wiggle room in Jax and Brittany’s unbreakable bond, and it’s totally fine – as long as Jax approves of the wiggler.
Fall season is in full swing! And that means an abundance of everything pumpkin flavored, and we are that much closer to watching the newest season of Vanderpump Rules. Luckily, some of the drama has already been on social media. Time to spill the
tea pumpkin spice latte.
First, Stassi Schroeder didn’t invite Kristen Doute to her engagement party. Who was there to cause drunken mayhem then? Jax Taylor blocked most of the cast on social media. He also hasn’t taken kindly to the newest
threats to his job security peeps to join the cast. Scheana Marie has been having fun dating other reality TV stars who may or may not be able to hang a TV in under seven minutes. And there is another bit of Scheana news, in that she may have a potential new ally on the show.
Vanderpump Rules stars Tom Sandoval and Jax Taylor have certainly had their fair share of ups and downs. They may always disagree on which one is the Number One Guy in the group, but, their friendship has remained strong in the face of some seriously awful occurrences. Who could forget the epic revelation in Season 2 that Jax had sex with Tom’s then-longtime girlfriend, Kristen Doute – twice. That storyline single-handedly made Pump Rules one of the most compelling shows on TV.
Jax’s propensity for spreading lies and throwing his friends under the bus is well known. For every time he’s been caught cheating, he has a story about one of the Tom’s cheating to deflect from his wrong-doing. How could we about forget Miami Girl? Or the time he left evidence of Tom Schwartz cheating open on his phone for Detective Doute to find? Bottom line, being friends with Jax seems exhausting.
