Vanderpump-Rules-Billie-Lee

Who even knows what’s going to happen to Vanderpump Rules. The entire cast went and had a baby or got “left” the show last year, in some cases both. We hear Season 9 is set to happen, but several OGs will not appear. Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, to name a few. It seems like time is up for Pump Rules, especially considering most of the cast hasn’t worked at Lisa Vanderpump’s famed restaurants in years.

Long gone are the old days of the VPR stars throwing drinks at each other or sneaking wine on the job. They’re real ass adults now — Jax loves to mow the lawn (and allegedly not pay his taxes). Lala Kent is a new mom and Scheana Shay’s baby is on the way. They all bought fancy houses where you can use the air conditioner and microwave at the same time. And some of the old antics just make us cringe now, particularly Jax’s bad behavior. 

Lisa Vanderpump

While several members of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast have been involved in their fair share of controversies, no housewife is more divisive than Kelly Dodd. It started with her low-blow attacks on her castmates regarding their age, appearances and more. Last year, she took it to another level when she made insensitive comments about the coronavirus pandemic and wore a hat that mocked the Black Lives Matter movement. She’s since apologized for her “stupid” comments, but even Kelly thinks she’s probably getting the boot before Season 16. But who knows, because Andy Cohen doesn’t necessarily think she’s problematic. 

And now Kelly has found herself in a controversy with former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump. But, somehow, LVP was the one admitting to a lie and apologizing to Kelly. I know, it’s very off-brand for these two.

Scheana Marie Lisa Vanderpump Vanderpump RulesSeveral members of the Vanderpump Rules cast traded liquor bottles for baby bottles this past year. Lala Kent and Randall Emmett just welcomed their baby girl a few days ago. Fired star Stassi Schroeder and her boo Beau Clark recently became parents (and already started a podcast about it). And Brittany Cartwright and Scheana Shay are also expecting babies this spring.

The OG Pumpers are all grown up and have had Lisa Vanderpump as a maternal figure to guide them along the way. While LVP expected some of her employees to start families, other pregnancy announcements were more of a shock.

Lala Kent Randall Emmett Vanderpump Rules

Lala Kent has someone to share her nightly baby bottles with. Yes, the Vanderpump Rules cast member is officially a mom! She and her fiancé Randall Emmett have welcomed a baby girl, their first child together.

Randall already has two daughters, Rylee and London, with his ex-wife, You actress Ambyr Childers.

Tom Sandoval & Ariana Madix

The fate of Vanderpump Rules remains in limbo – or does it? No one seemingly wants to officially cut the cord of the popular Bravo show that hasn’t filmed since last year. The program didn’t return to it’s regularly scheduled season because it needed to fill some casting gaps left open by racism firings and then the Rona came and shut everything down. Most of the crew has kept busy by creating babies or writing books no one asked for and it seemed all held hope production would begin at some point.

Now here we are, still waiting. Most of our shows are back to their normal pace and in the interim, Lisa Vanderpump got a whole new gig. Yet Pump Rules is still sitting in time out, seemingly teetering on the edge of cancellation but never quite falling over. Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix are two long-term members of the show who are still technically employed by Bravo because they didn’t get canned. Recently the #1 guy in that group hinted the show will in fact be back, but it’s not even close to being on anyone’s watchlist.

Vanderpump-Rules-Stassi-Schroeder

It seems like forever since Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired from Vanderpump Rules for their racist behavior. Two newbies, Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens were also axed for their racial insensitivity on June 9, 2020.

Stassi lost many brand endorsement deals, and her podcast was yanked from all platforms. There were rumblings in August of 2020 that Stassi might get a show of her own, but the talks never came to fruition.

Scheana Marie Watch What Happens Live

One thing we can look forward to if and when Vanderpump Rules comes back is Scheana Shay being pregnant and in a seemingly healthy relationship. Never forget, Scheana gave Lisa Vanderpump a reason to pitch the spinoff to Bravo by having an affair with Eddie CibrianBrandi Glanville’s ex-husbandStassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Katie Maloney tried to make Scheana the villain on the show. However, that ultimately failed when it couldn’t be denied that they were actually awful people.

Throughout Scheana’s tenure on Pump Rules she has been trolled pretty hard. By fellow cast members, fans, and even shady former producers. Bottom line, if crappy people like Jax Taylor can get their happy ending on the show, I think Scheana, deserves the same. I know I’m not the only Scheana fan in the room either.

Lisa Vanderpump Says Stassi And Kristen Aren’t “Racist A Thousand Percent” And That Their Actions Against Faith Stowers Were “Awful Timing,” “Stupid,” And “Ignorant”

Remember Vanderpump Rules? If this were an ordinary year (where did those go?) we would be watching our once favorite SURvers right now as they made fun of Scheana Marie, fought over petty BS, and got sloppy drunk. Alas, the reckoning of 2020 put a stop to all that. Production for Season 9 is still halted due to COVID and Bravo fired OGs Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute for racist actions against Faith Stowers. Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright also got the ax “parted” with Pump Rules in 2020.

So, who’s left? Lala Kent, Scheana, Tom Schwartz, Katie Maloney, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, James Kennedy and newbie Charli Burnett. That sounds like enough for a show to me. But it seems like Bravo is slowly backtracking on last year’s exodus. First, Andy Cohen publicly mourned the changes. Now, it’s Lisa Vanderpump’s turn to plant the seeds for redemption.
