I have been waiting for this moment forever. Well, it actually hasn’t been too long. Truthfully, I have only been waiting for this moment for about a month: Summer House cast member Carl Radke finally showed up to the clubhouse to discuss those rumors that he hooked up with Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Marie. This has been discussed on many episodes of Watch What Happens Live and during podcast interviews by Stephen McGee, Kristen Doute, and Stassi Schroeder. Obviously Scheana (and her mom) denied the claims, but Carl showed up to share his version of events. Spoiler alert: it is very different than Scheana’s.
Joining Carl and Andy Cohen in the clubhouse was Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent. She discussed her newfound friendships with Katie Maloney, Kristen, and Stassi. She even commented on the speculation about James Kennedy and Logan Noh being more than just friends, and all of the other hot topics this season.
The tough thing about being on reality TV is that being open about your life often involves mentioning other people. So when Ariana Madix opened up about the lingering effects of a toxic relationship on Vanderpump Rules, she was trying to explain why she is the person she is today, but there’s no way to convey that without talking about her previous boyfriend.
Of course Ariana didn’t mention the man by name, but she is still nervous that the ex who referred to her vagina as “disgusting” is going to retaliate against her for being so open about her struggles and the impact of that relationship on her current one with live-in boyfriend Tom Sandoval.
I cannot get enough of Bravo. I wish that there was some sort of spin-off hybrid series about the Bravolebrities in between seasons. I would love to see people from different shows mingling, turning up after Watch What Happens Live, and whatever else happens before and after they post photos together on Instagram.
Since Summer House is technically a Vanderpump Rules spin-off and the two casts hang out pretty often, it’s not too hard to imagine that a hookup went down with cast members from both shows.
It is so difficult keeping track of the friendships on Vanderpump Rules. No matter what happens or what they say about each other, you never know where these people stand with each other on any given day. These cast members have to be the most forgiving people on the planet.
Kristen Doute never got along with Ariana Madix or Lala Kent in the past, but now she’s cool with both of them. Ariana started dating Kristen’s ex boyfriend and Kristen invited a girl that he allegedly hooked up with all the way from Miami to show up at SUR in Los Angeles and now these two are getting along after years of shading each other. Kristen and Lala never had a chance at friendship thanks to everyone else’s drama. Now, Kristen is on good terms with them and she opened up about that in a recent interview.
Of course I don’t want the current Vanderpump Rules season to end, but at the same time, I cannot wait until the cast gets together for the reunion episodes. One reason is that it seems like almost every woman in this cast has issues with Scheana Marie and I want to see it all play out while they’re all spray tanned and glammed up.
Recently, both Scheana and her ex Robert Valletta blamed the Vanderpump Rules cast for their breakup, so it seems like the bad blood goes both ways. And I want to know why. I want to know every single thing that went down this season and I want to know now. Unfortunately, I have no insider information, but a recent interview with Scheana does make it clear where she stands with most of the other cast members. Well, it is at least clear where she stands with Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Katie Maloney– i.e. not on good terms.
Watching Brittany Cartwright during her last appearance on Watch What Happens Live made me want to leap through the screen and give her a hug. It really seemed like she was on the verge of tears every single time Andy Cohen brought up Jax Taylor cheating on her with Faith Stowers– which happened for the entire half hour episode.
Thankfully she had Ariana Madix on hand for support. The two of them discussed Jax’s cheating (obviously), the allegations that Tom Schwartz made out with someone that wasn’t his wife Katie Maloney, and get ready for this: Ariana’s friendship with Kristen Doute. It is possible for every person on this show to get along (no matter what issues they have or what mean things they’ve done to each other) and it absolutely amazes me.
Even though most of the ladies in the Vanderpump Rules cast want nothing to do with their (former?) friend Scheana Marie, she couldn’t be on better terms with her recent ex Robert Valletta.
Rob even called in to the Watch What Happens Live After Show when Scheana was one of Andy Cohen’s guests to make it clear that there’s no hard feelings associated with the split. He also threw some major shade at Scheana’s frienemies.
