It almost seems pointless to write this in light of the latest news that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni were fired from Vanderpump Rules for racist remarks and behaviors.
Honestly watching part 2 of the Vanderpump Rules reunion was like watching a zoom full of ghosts.
This firing is long overdue in the case of Stassi who has a history of awful statements. I also think it’s time for Jax Taylor to face those same consequences for his rampant misogyny and disgusting homophobic and transphobic statements. Statements he has made in front of Andy Cohen on WWHL. While Vanderpump Rules may be ‘Jax’s show’ (in his own hubristic mind!), WWHL is Andy’s show. And Andy, like Lisa Vanderpump, has let this crap go completely unchecked for way too long.
It feels like such a moot point to watch Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute screaming at each other during tonight’s Vanderpump Rules reunion. This morning, Stassi, Kristen, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni all got fired from the show because of their racially insensitive remarks and past behavior.
Nevertheless, the Vanderpump Rules reunion was pre-taped and the reunion continues tonight with a second episode.
If only we could travel back in time to Vanderpump Rules season 4. Lala Kent was a sassy newbie who many fans rooted for when the mean girls tried everything they could to exclude her from the show. Then, Lala acquired private jet access, and all of a sudden she’s in the “cool” clique. It seems like she forgot where she came from; i.e. who was nice to her when no one else was.
Ariana Madix and Scheana Marie welcomed were the only people who were nice to Lala at the beginning. Now, Lala is dragging them every chance she gets. Lala slammed Ariana for only wanting to be her friend when she’s in a crisis. She also claimed that Scheana was “uninteresting,” but what storyline does Lala have? Other than belittling Raquel Leviss constantly, nothing really comes to mind.
Ugh – I am losing my patience for “Jax Taylor‘s show.” Jax needs to get off his high – very, very <snort, snort> high horse, and take Lisa Vanderpump‘s advice to “SHUT UP.” Lala Kent needs to come down with him. I do not need to see this jump off, with a face so inflated with fillers she looks like a balloon, tell anyone how to live. So are the days of Vanderpump Rules when the most awful people sanctimoniously judge others.
So much chaos in a zoom reunion. Even more so than in a regular old ‘on the stage’ reunion. The best though t’was Lisa chastising Andy Cohen for essentially showing up in his sweats. At the very least he could put on a low-cut satin blouse!
Jax and Tom Sandoval are rocking some serious facial hair. Is it like some sort of sign that they’re going to fight? Like they will start by throwing chairs at their computer screens, then throw the actual computers, then mutually run out their neighboring homes, race across the street and start brawling in the front lawn until they’re ticketed for breaking quarantine?
The Vanderpump Rules Season 8 reunion kicks off tonight. Andy Cohen meets with the many Vanderpump Rules cast members via video chat to dish on the most interesting moments of the season and to drop some truth bombs about some tea none of us knew about.
Of course, we will see Jax Taylor and Tom Sandoval’s feud play out, for the 100th time. And, most likely, they’ll be “best friends” again next season. However, I’m sure they’re gonna revisit the “pre-bachelor party” drama and the dueling pool parties.
Last night’s Vanderpump Rules finale truly felt like it was the end of an era. And I’m ready to send Jax Taylor off into the abyss, where surely he will go after yelling in Lisa Vanderpump‘s face that this is ‘his show’. Lisa has already endured that type of malarky with Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills so she’ll certainly not put up with it from underling upstarts living in Valley Village (ahem.. Brandi!)
Tom 1 and Tom 2, by compression, are now well on their way to being restaurant moguls after signing onto the expansion of Tom Tom. They are moving into adulthood (finally!), while Jax, don’t bother blessing his cold dead heart, isn’t moving at all. He’s trapped in a fishbowl of his own drool, constantly regurgitating his own nonsense.
Jax can pretend all he wants that he’s tired of Tom 1, but what Jax is really tired of is Tom 1 being successful. Tom and Jax came up together as bartenders at SUR. For most of Vanderpump Rules Jax’s drama has driven things; yet it is Tom who was given the nudge by Lisa.
Well, hell hath surely frozen over and the next thing we’ll be celebrating on Vanderpump Rules is an ice skating party because I actually liked Katie Maloney this episode. Hold me – I am fainting from the vapors!
At least I’m reassured that the constant is my complete and utter disgust of Jax Taylor! Accidentally taking a bite of that moldy lasagna found in the back of your fridge during a dunk binge eat is more desirable!
After Jax went on a rage-text tirade and uninvited everyone from his pool party (like anyone wanted to go to begin with) Tom Sandoval decided to host his own party for the rejects. Unfortunately the list of rejects grew and grew until it was revenge of the rejects with Tom and Ariana Madix winding up with an amazing party while Jax and Brittany Cartwright had one of the sad little get-togethers you see at the end of an HGTV House Hunters episode when the couple claims they “LOVE” to entertain.
Lala Kent has had a lot to say about her Vanderpump Rules castmates this season. She’s been battling against Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix in the press. He said Lala wasn’t a good friend to Ariana. Lala clapped back and she’s been shading them both ever since. During the season itself, Lala was unnecessarily cruel to Raquel Leviss on multiple occasions, but it seems like they’ve made up at this point. She’s also thrown some cheap shots at Scheana Marie, calling her a “slutty JoJo Siwa” because of her crop top and high ponytail.
On top of all that, she has been consistently vocal about her dislike for the new cast members who joined the show this season. Thank god for her private jet access. Otherwise, she might not have any friends in the cast.
