James Kennedy was very much on the outs with the Vanderpump Rules cast during last night’s episode. Peter Madrigal disinvited James from his birthday party in honor of his groomsman spot in Jax Taylor’s wedding. This groomzilla schtick is getting pretty old. And let’s be honest: it is a chore to be in someone’s wedding party. Weirdly, Peter did invite James’ girlfriend Raquel Leviss to the party, but she stayed loyal to her boo and skipped the event, even though James cursed her out on the phone during the previous episode when she missed part of his DJ set at Tom Tom during Pride.
At this point in the season, Lisa Vanderpump is very wary of bringing James back to SUR for his signature See You Next Tuesday DJ event. We all saw him secretly drinking at Pride even though he claimed to be sober that day. Clearly, the guy had a long way to go before getting back in LVP’s good graces professionally. Well, Vanderpump Rules Season 8 was actually filmed in Summer 2019 and it seems like a lot has changed since then. At least for James anyway. The self-proclaimed White Kanye is back at SUR!
There were already a ton of people on Vanderpump Rules before this season. Plus, anytime someone gets into a new relationship, that brings in another new cast member, which has doubled the original cast.
For some reason, production decided to bring in a million new cast members for Season 8. Season 7 was a bit stale, I’m not gonna lie, but we don’t need to “meet” this many people and keep track of their lives. The viewers already have enough on their hands. Or at least Lala Kent thinks so.
This Kristen Doute vs. Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney feud is a case of she said, she said. Even so, we still are just getting a bunch of vague quotes, well, for the most part.
Recently, Kristen threw out a theory that she thinks Stassi and Katie ditched her because she’s single. And that theory did not sit well with Stassi. So much for Kristen’s hopes of getting an invite to Stassi’s wedding.
The Vanderpump Rules cast is all grown up! This season we watched three of the couples move into houses that look hilariously identical to each other. Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz got married in 2017. Next up were Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor, who got hitched last summer in a lavish wedding in Kentucky.
Pumps Rules co-star Lala Kent is marrying Randall Emmett in April, but their nuptials will not be televised. Beau Clark popped the question to Stassi Schroeder in a cemetery, and the couple is slated to tie the knot in Italy in October.
The Tom Sandoval vs. Stassi Schroeder showdown at the book signing for Stassi’s book Next Level Basic: The Definitive Basic Bitch Handbook is the biggest story on Vanderpump Rules Season 8 so far. Forget, the extremely vague feud between Stassi, Kristen Doute, and Katie Maloney or the ridiculous fallout between Jax Taylor and Sandoval over the “pre-bachelor party.”
There has always been an air of dislike between Stassi and Sandoval, ever since the start of the show, but usually their issues had to do with other people. Now, this issue is just between the two of them, well, the two of them, the whole cast, and all of the fans. Recently, Lala Kent dished on the argument during an episode of the podcast she hosts with her man Randall Emmett. Jax and Brittany Cartwright chimed in as well. And, yes, they were all #TeamStassi.
Before Scheana Marie linked up with her current man, she was spotted with various Bachelor franchise alums, vacationing in Hawaii and going to Disney Land. She responded to the intrigue by claiming those guys are just her “best friends,” but did here’s the twist- she probably set those photo opportunities up herself.
Or at least that’s what Stassi Schroeder and Lala Kent recently said. In fact, they said that she calls the paparazzi on herself pretty often. Is anyone surprised by this? No, not really.
Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent has experienced a lot of big life changes recently. In October of 2019, Lala announced that she had been sober for one year. Being sober and hanging with her alcohol-drenched Pump Rules co-stars must be extraordinarily difficult. Congrats, Lala!
In April, an entertaining social media feud erupted between Lala, her man Randall Emmett, and Curtis James Jackson III, also known as 50 Cent. Allegedly Randall, who produces projects involving the rap star, owed 50 Cent $ 1 million dollars. 50 Cent brutally dissed Lala, and in the mayhem, Randall accidentally called 50 Cent “Fofty.” The hilarious moniker stuck for a while. Eventually, the loan was repaid.
We are only two episodes in with the current Vanderpump Rules season, and it’s already shaping up to be the girls vs. Kristen Doute. Yes, I know that not every woman is involved in this feud, but Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder are over Kristen’s confusing relationship with Brian Carter and the feud is eclipsing the season.
Lala Kent even got up in Kristen’s face during the premiere episode to share her opinions. It’s unclear what happened throughout the course of filming, but as of this moment, in the present day, Kristen is still on the outs with Stassi and Katie, her longtime best friends.
