Things are finally heading in the right direction for Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder. Several seasons ago, she seemed a shell of her former sharp-tongued self when she was dating mansplainer Patrick Meagher. But when that relationship finally ended, Stassi pulled herself up by her slingback straps and hasn’t looked back since.
The fashionista got her own national holiday and wrote a book that made it onto the New York Times bestsellers list. See if your cocktail book can top that, Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix! She also got engaged to her new boyfriend Beau Clark, who accepts her for who she is, birthday meltdowns and all. So, the newest season of Pump Rules will be all smiles for Stassi right? Not so fast. Apparently, there is major drama on the horizon for her and one of her besties, Kristen Doute.
Billie Lee has definitely lived up to the phrase “do not go gentle into that good night.” Recently, she dropped the bombshell she quit Vanderpump Rules to focus on an anti-bullying campaign, and that she was bullied on the show. Welcome to the club Billie! You are now members with Scheana Marie, Lala Kent, James Kennedy, Raquel Leviss, Tom Schwartz…
Then Billie announced the news that she is ready to have a baby. She’s in a good head space, and even made up with Lala, who was there to support her during some dark times she had while on the show. And it’s pretty amazing they made up considering they were at each others throats during brunch and at Scheana’s housewarming party. Billie still has more to talk about, and this time it’s about the cast.
Vanderpump Rules may have gained a new employee in the form of James Kennedy’s last link to the show aka girlfriend Raquel Leviss, but it appears as though they are losing another.
Billie Lee is leaving. And as with everything else she does, she is turning her leaving into a public service announcement.
Minus the big events, like Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding in Kentucky, the Vanderpump Rules Season 8 details have remained under wraps. Well, minus the gossip that Lance Bass leaked the (alleged) status of Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s marriage.
Lance isn’t the only one leaking the Pump Rules news though. Or at least that is what it seems like. Did Lala Kent spill the beans about a new addition to the show? That’s up for interpretation at this point, but let’s get into the evidence.
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Cauchi. Cauchi is Jax Taylor’s actual last name in case anyone forgot. And, yes, Jax and Brittany Cartwright tied the knot during a weekend-long extravaganza in a Kentucky castle.
Every single Vanderpump Rules cast member was a part of the wedding. Well, except for James Kennedy, Raquel Leviss, and Billie Lee, who were not invited, obviously. Other than that, Kentucky was full of Bravolebrities.
Could James Kennedy be ready to put a ring on it? He sure thinks so. Even with all of the cheating allegations and general instability in his life, he is convinced that he and Raquel Leviss will be the next Vanderpump Rules couple to walk down the aisle.
And why not? This was a great
storyline move for Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright, who are getting married next week, which will be filmed for Season 8, of course. Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz had a whole season devoted to their wedding planning… which wasn’t the best look for them. Will James and Raquel be the next Vanderpump Rules duo to get engaged for a storyline? And who can forget when Scheana Marie got married in that crop top wedding dress?
LA Pride has become a staple on each Vanderpump Rules season. Every year, Lisa Vanderpump and the rest of the cast members go all out for Pride. Every single one of them gets in on the celebration.
And, for the most part, they all dress up in some festive outfits, especially the ladies. And Tom Sandoval, of course. He always comes through for a thematic event and Pride is no exception.
Since Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s joint bachelor/bachelorette party went so well, the Vanderpump Rules cast decided to apply the same concept in honor of Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s big day. In case you didn’t detect my sarcasm, or if you’re a new viewer, Tom and Katie’s party was a complete and total shit show.
Yes, in a fun way, but also in a cringe-worthy way, i.e. the arguments. It was rough to see Tom and Katie arguing just before they tied the knot. Who could ever forget Tom Sandoval dressed in drag yelling about how Schwartz is a “battered wife”? Let’s hope that Jax and Brittany’s joint party was not reminiscent of Tom and Katie’s trip.
