This season seems to be a reckoning on Vanderpump Rules. A washing the slate clean to prepare for the new and fresh, and the people getting hit the hardest are Jax Taylor and Scheana Marie. I welcome this.
For some bizarro reason Max Boyens hosts a beach clean-up at a public beach that gets regularly cleaned by the city. Then, because this makes total logical sense, everyone who shows up is swilling wine out of plastic solo cups. Erm. Look – I get it, they need to give Max something to DO besides women, but how about we get a little more filler about his backstory? Like who is this guy other than the person who’s presumably replacing Jax as the Number 3 guy in the TomSquared concoction.
Speaking of Jax, he does not attend because he it’s ridiculous to have to drive “4 hours,” polluting the environment to clean up a beach. He’s not wrong, but of course Brittany Cartwright is there. They could’ve taken the car pool lane, y’all!
It looks like 2020 is the year of the virtual reunion. Well, pretty much the virtual everything at this point. Real Housewives of Atlanta filmed a reunion via Zoom. The Tinger King cast filmed their reunion virtually as well. Now, it’s the Vanderpump Rules cast’s turn at the virtual reunion.
Just because the sit-down was filmed via webcam while the cast members quarantined safely at home, it doesn’t mean that they toned down the glam. They may have done their own hair and makeup, but you really can’t tell. They really went all out. All 392,252,155 of the cast members.
During last week’s episode of Vanderpump Rules, Beau Clark proposed to Stassi Schroeder in a graveyard. This week, they’re still living it up in their engagement, but most likely, that will included continued bitching about Kristen Doute, the one (main) cast member excluded fromtheir celebration.
Scheana Marie asks Brett Caprioni to be her love interest in her music video. Most likely, she did this to bother Dayna Kathan, who has been seeing Brett. That’s probably going tot backfire on Scheana. The girl is having a rough season when it comes to her issues with Dayna.
James Kennedy has been on another apology tour this season on Vanderpump Rules. This is his storyline pretty much every season, but this time there’s a major difference. James’ last main supporter, his girlfriend Raquel Leviss, has finally had enough. She put her foot down and gave him an ultimatum. Either he stops drinking completely and goes to AA meetings, or she is out.
It seems like Raquel threatening to leave finally got through to James. His whole demeanor seems different, and his energy is much calmer. He has been going to meetings, staying sober, and appears to be working a recovery program. Part of working the program is making amends to those whom you have wronged, and James had big amends to make with Katie Maloney. On last week’s episode, he finally bit the bullet and offered Katie a surprisingly humble and convincing apology at the SUR-Tom Tom softball game. Even more surprising was Katie’s acceptance of his apology and agreement to dead their issues once and for all. So what made this apology different from all of the others that James has offered up in the past?
You guys we just got through another Vanderpump Rules wedding, and now we’re rushed right into another engagement. I just… don’t… think… I … can… take… it. I am fatigued, y’all. Fatigued! I feel about these weddings the way everyone else on this show feels about their friendships with Kristen Doute. I am wrung out on made-for-TV pseudo-happiness and forever afters.
The latest couple to plod towards the aisle escorted by all the Bravo trappings is Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark. Blah, blah, blah – beautiful proposal, fabulous vintage Tiffany ring (omg – swoon), followed by a fantastic surprise engagement party thrown by Lisa Vanderpump at Villa Rosa which made Brittany Cartwright, former princess bridezilla, jealous. Worth it just for that!
See Brittany is done bride-ing, and is now riding Jax Taylor for the rest of live-long days. She wanted a frog who turned into a prince, but what she got was a frog who turned into an ogre. But at least that ogre can push a lawnmower!
After over a month of Vanderpump Rules episodes leading up to this moment, Beau Clark finally proposes to Stassi Schroeder tonight. The big moment is actually the most Stassi proposal ever, in a graveyard, and filmed by a camera crew, of course.
Most of the cast is invited to celebrate the engagement at Lisa Vanderpump’s house. However, Kristen Doute did not make the cut, yet there’s an empty chair there, for everyone to awkwardly feel her presence. Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright try to comfort Kristen for feeling left out, but something tells me she’s still going to be upset regardless.
Lala Kent is at it again. The outspoken star of Vanderpump Rules truly seems like she’s on a high horse these days. We know Lala doesn’t care what anyone thinks of her (or so she says). But from what we are seeing both on the show and off, it seems like Lala thinks she is “better” than her co-stars.
First, she called the sweet and kind Raquel Leviss a “peasant.” Now, Lala is holding nothing back when it comes to her opinion of rest of the Vanderpump Rules newbies.
Lala has come a long way since her early days on Vanderpump Rules, when no one would talk to her except DJ James Kennedy. She managed to win over most of the cast, befriend all of the girls, and was even a bridesmaid in Brittany Cartwright’s wedding. Along the way she got engaged to her movie producer boyfriend, Randall Emmett, and is about to be married to the love of her life. Everything should be great in Lalaland.
But this year, the Utah gangster has definitely gotten more comfortable on the show. One might say too comfortable. She seems angry and annoyed most of the time. She has turned her back on James. Lala has attacked poor, sweet Raquel Leviss multiple times. And she spent her free time in the off season engaging in social media battles with 50 cent. Now she has issues with Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix. Could it be that Lala has now become the mean girl she once claimed to stand against?
