Vanderpump Rules star Lisa Vanderpump has had a rough go of it this year. Back in March, the restaurant industry suffered from massive shut downs due to the pandemic. Many restaurants decided to stay open for take out during that time, but Lisa had opted to keep SUR, Pump, TomTom, and Villa Blanca closed instead. Those who had cravings for fried goat cheese balls or Pumptini’s would have to wait. Unfortunately, Lisa ended up having to close down Villa Blanca for good.
Gradually, restrictions were lifted and restaurants were allowed to have outdoor dining. The friend goat cheese balls were being served once again as SUR reopened, and Lisa was back in action. Cast members Charli Burnett, Dayna Kathan, and Danica Dow also returned. Shortly after SUR reopened, Pump finally opened their doors as well. Things were back on the up and up for Lisa. However, with covid cases increasing, new lockdowns have been implemented in Los Angeles County. Will Lisa decide to shut down her restaurants once again?
We’ve seen a lot of changes coming out of Vanderpump Rules since filming stopped this year. After firing Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute, the show seemed destined to fade. But then came the baby explosion, thanks for a very real pregnancy pact by the ladies on the show.
Stassi announced her pregnancy. Then came Lala Kent revealing she’s pregnant. Next was Brittany Cartwright, who is by far my least favorite pregnant person if you check out her ultra-annoying Instagram. Finally, after a heartbreaking miscarriage, Scheana Shay is finally having her happy ending with a pregnancy of her own. Even Katie Maloney and forever-bum husband, Tom Schwartz are trying to have a kid.
Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent and her man Randall Emmett have mostly been in the news as of late due to Lala’s growing baby bump. Lala proudly announced she and the rest of the Pump Rules crew made a pregnancy pact, and so far she, Stassi Schroeder, and Brittany Cartwright have kept their word. All three are pregnant, and are now pushing for Katie Maloney to join the fold.
Lala, of course, has also been busy getting into fights online. Her on again off again friendship with Scheana Marie is now off again. Scheana accused Lala of not supporting her during her miscarriage, and Lala denies all wrong doing. Lala also got into the middle of a feud between Real Housewives of Orange County stars Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke. Perhaps Lala should instead start focusing on fixing troubles closer to home. And that trouble would be with Randall.
The off-screen drama between Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke is heating up. They unfollowed each other on Instagram, which isn’t the biggest deal. Braunwyn claimed that Kelly and Emily Simpson unfollowed her because of their different political beliefs.
Kelly slammed Braunwyn for traveling all over during a pandemic, without her seven kids. She also said that the kids spend much more time with the nanny than they do with Braunwyn. She called Braunwyn a “poser” and a “loser” who’s “never done anything in her life.” The latest? Kelly shared photos of Braunwyn’s license plates and raised questions about Braunwyn doing something shady with her taxes since she lives in California, but she has Florida plates. In response, social media users accused Kelly of doxxing Braunwyn. Now, Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent is chiming in because, well, she knows a thing or two about slamming a co-star on social media. Just ask Scheana Shay. She’s been on the receiving end of Lala’s vitriol, plenty of times.
Since two thirds of the Witches of WeHo have been fired from Vanderpump Rules, things have been changing pretty fast for the whole cast. Stassi Schroeder announced she was pregnant at the apex of the VPR shake-up and married Beau Clark. Following soon after, Lala Kent announced that her and Randall Emmett are also expecting, and so are Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor. Most recently, in October, Scheana Shay announced she was pregnant, after miscarrying earlier this year.
Stassi, Lala, Scheana, and Brittany each had gender reveals. Everyone aside from Brittany and Jax are expecting baby girls. Fast forward to season 45 of Pump Rules where Jason Cauchi Jr. is tattooing Stassi’s daughter’s name on his ass. Aside from Kristen Doute and Ariana Madix, the only veteran cast member not pregnant is Katie Maloney.
This summer, Scheana Shay revealed that she went through a miscarriage. This was around the time that the news broke that Stassi Schroeder is pregnant. Soon after, Lala Kent and Brittany Cartwright shared their pregnancy announcements, which wasn’t surprising since they made an actual pregnancy pact with Katie Maloney.
After experiencing her miscarriage, Scheana announced that she and her boyfriend Brock Davies are expecting their first child together. He has a son and daughter from a previous marriage who live in Australia.
The Vanderpump Rules cast has grown up a lot. Not in terms of maturity or developing a social conscious. They’ve matured in the sense that they can buy two-million-dollar houses in Valley Village and fulfill a pregnancy pact, just like that Lifetime movie. That pact included Lala Kent, fired bigot Stassi Schroeder, and Brittany Cartwright. Outside of that pact is Scheana Shay, who is also pregnant! This is great news considering she suffered a miscarriage earlier this year.
During that awful time in Scheana’s life, Stassi was very supportive, along with Ariana Madix and Brittany. Now, for inexplicable reasons, Scheana and Stassi are on the outs again, and so are Scheana and Lala. Apparently, Stassi didn’t like Scheana sharing the one good story about Stassi this year that Stassi was supportive of her in the aftermath of her miscarriage. Now that Scheana has good news again, she’s sharing who in the cast has reached out with congratulations.
Some of the cast members of Vanderpump Rules that were not fired for being racist have a lot to celebrate these days. Scheana Shay is newly pregnant. Her boyfriend might have a name like a criminal doctor on All My Children, but she seems happy and we certainly wish her the best. Lala Kent’s rags to riches story also continues to improve. Thankfully Katie Maloney and Ariana Madix have not fallen victim to breeding
publicity stunts because it’s on-trend at the moment.
Once hailed as the resident whore (because Katie calls it like she sees it) of SUR, now Lala is a mom-to-be. Currently still with her fiancé, Randall Emmett, hopefully Rand will pay all of his bills before the little bundle of joy arrives. These days Lala is observing another milestone in her life. Sadly, she has not repaired her relationship with Schee Shoo, but she has stayed on the wagon.
