After eight seasons, those left on
are finally Vanderpump Rules doing the adulting thing for real. And yes, it’s more than just being able to use the microwave and the air conditioning at the same time. Half of the cast (and half of the fired former stars) are new parents. , once a messy and crass DJ, James Kennedy finally popped the question to and I’m ROOTING for them. And even Raquel Leviss and Tom Sandoval FINALLY got furniture in their house. The only thing that’s the same is Ariana Madix s narcissism, but the Jax Taylor’ cameras won’t be around this time to film that.
The OG Pumper
is also going through plenty of transformations. She’s Scheana Marie kissed a lot of frogs (and losers who are only good for mounting TVs) before finding her prince, . The couple has been together through the thick of it — from Brock Davies dealing with a miscarriage last year, to the COVID-19 pandemic, to finally giving birth to their first child. It wasn’t an easy pregnancy for Scheana, but their adorable little baby is a Summer Moon Honey Davies perfect peach. And I’m sure once she’s a little older, she’ll rock a high pony and crop top just like her mama. Good as gold.
It’s all happening for
. The Scheana Shay star has been through a lot in her time on the show. We watched her marry Vanderpump Rules in a half top that Mike Shay Stassi Schroeder was totally jealous of, then a few seasons later, we watched Scheana and Mike divorce because he couldn’t keep his lies straight. Scheana has always been open about her life on . So, when she started dating again she showed us every difficult moment. Unfortunately for Scheana, she picked Pump Rules some serious losers to go out with – none of whom should ever be named again.
Scheana found , a Brock Davies personal trainer from Australia. The man looks like he should be on the cover of a romance novel. The couple also recently had their first child together, a daughter , . It’s safe to say everyone is incredibly happy for Scheana, especially since she suffered Summer Moon Honey Davies a miscarriage the year before. Now, Scheana’s life appears to be good as gold.
I know what you’re thinking — why is
still getting any attention Kelly Dodd following her firing from the . Trust me, I feel the same — I’d love nothing more than to never have to write Kelly Fraud’s name ever again. But unfortunately, Kelly is thirsty for attention and it’s obvious she and Real Housewives of Orange County need to Rick Leventhal find some way to make a buck after both losing their jobs. We all just have to be patient, the day will come when Kelly will truly be completely and totally irrelevant. Someday, kids, someday.
Kelly, to no surprise, has NOT taken the time since she was booted from to RHOC reflect on her bad behavior that got her the pink slip in the first place. No, she blames and her Braunwyn Windham-Burke conservative viewpoints for that. My eyes cannot roll any further back into my head. And she’s too busy saying every nasty thing in the book about her former co-stars and trying not to get sued by lawyers. Thank god Fancy Pants Heather Dubrow’s is making a return — I don’t think I could handle another second of Kelly or Braunwyn on my TV.
has been a James Kennedy polarizing figure throughout his time on . He had a rough start, but ever since he embarked on his Vanderpump Rules sobriety journey, he seems to have changed for the better. VPR is heading into unchartered waters next season, with many of the OGs getting pink slips from Bravo. And I never thought I’d say this, but James and his new fiance might be my new favorite couple on the show. That’s Raquel Leviss called growth, hunny.
James and Raquel may have not been in on the Pump Rules pregnancy pact, they’re truly growing up for the better. James is back DJing at Sur now that pandemic restrictions have subsided and Raquel is SUR-ving. He and have worked out their differences now that they’re both sober now and it’s a much more Lala Kent positive experience to watch James thrive on TV. While the next season of could be a VPR hit or a bust, I’m excited to see more of James and Raquel’s wedding planning and day-to-day lives. And something tells me James won’t be half of the groomzilla was when he married Jax Taylor last season. OMG does this mean that James is now the Brittany Cartwright No. 1 guy in the group? My my, how times have changed.
Unfortunately it seems the
already tainted name of is about to get dirtier. Tom Girardi estranged husband is, to put it simply, done. He no longer Erika Jayne’s has a career, enough money to buy Taco Bell, or a home to live in. It’s a damn good thing Erika has the paycheck or we might be forced to listen to her cover Real Housewives of Beverly Hills hit record, Scheana Shay’s in an effort to Good As Gold make some quick cashola.
Tom has nothing left due to bad business OR the theory he stole from needy clients to pay for Erika’s collection of named wigs put in place as substitutions for actual human beings who want to be around her. Fake friends are expensive, okay? Tom’s issue with paying people isn’t new and creditors have been coming after him for years, including his business partners at Girardi Keese. Now we find out Tom’s law firm was approved for a government-funded PPP loan only 5 months before blowing through all of his cash.
Let’s take it back to 2009. Ex-model and mom of two boys,
was divorcing z-list actor, Brandi Glanville . Eddie starred in the 1997 night-time soap, Sunset Beach, which catapulted his career into nothingness for a decade. Finally, in 2009 he got a role in a Lifetime Television adaptation of a Nora Roberts’ book, which would actually put his name in (northern) lights. That’s only because Eddie Cibrian it was on this set that he met , who was married to LeAnn Rimes at the time. Dean Sheremet
The two started an affair and
Brandi was made aware of it by the tabloids. Turns out Eddie was a serial cheater, having relations with , who would go on later to star in Scheana Marie . Post-divorce, in 2011, Brandi appeared as a friend of Vanderpump Rules on Lisa Vanderpump , where she would Real Housewives of Beverly Hills carry the show for years in spite of getting a fair paycheck only talk about the affair, go on to write a book about the affair, and talk crap about them on twitter. Regardless, Brandi’s story in Bravoland has always been tied to the cheating husband, LeAnn, and Scheana. Now, she’s starting to re-write the narrative.
After what seems like an eternity, we are
almost to season 9 of . I, for one, and semi-excited to see what this rearranged crew has in store. Viewers will Vanderpump Rules no longer have to cope with the likes of , Jax Taylor , and Stassi Schroeder . While Jax would love everyone to think he is on to Kirsten Doute bigger and better things, he and were recently seen on social media mingling with the likes of Brittany Cartwright from TLC’s Angela Deem . Just….why? 90 Day Fiance
already know to expect to see an VPR engagement storyline from remaining cast members and James Kennedy . We also anticipate seeing some Raquel Leviss motherhood journeys served up by and Scheana Marie . Speaking of Lala, it will be a wonder how she worms her way back into the group without the main Witches of Weho at her side. Since the Lala Kent filming break, she’s been doing a lot of apologizing for past actions, as well as a lot of self-promoting press.
It’s time to play another round of, I Hate
But Lisa Vanderpump Her Jedi Mind Powers Force Me To Talk About Her Constantly. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills wasn’t the end of the road for . She has LVP her remaining restaurants, dog rescue organization, and three television shows currently on network schedules. Former co-star has issue with LVP’s latest show, Lisa Rinna . Vanderpump Dogs
to a piece of the dog pie since the creation of Rinna feels entitled floated during filming of LVP’s newest spinoff Season 9. Well guess what. Now RHOBH wants a piece of pie too, but she wants Brandi Glanville pie. She feels if other cast are paid for Vanderpump Rules , she should be compensated for allowing the first episode of Vanderpump Dogs to kick off on a storyline courtesy of her Pump Rules piece of shit ex-husband. Unfortunately for Brandi, that piece of Pump Rules pie might be sitting right beside the RHOBH diamond.
