This weekend is the first ever BravoCon. I have to admit that it sounds like a lot of fun. Tickets for the event went on sale in August and sold out immediately. Three days of all your favorite Bravo reality stars from all your favorite shows. The convention is featuring panels, photo ops, live shows and more. There is even going to be a Real Housewives Museum with photos, dresses worn at the reunions and Housewives memorabilia. Maybe Real Housewives of New York’s Aviva Drescher’s famously tossed prosthetic leg will make a guest appearance!
Bravo fans attending the event will also be able to try a special product inspired by one of the network’s favorite stars. Vanderpump Rules’ Lisa Vanderpump is being honored with a sparkling rosé that will debut at BravoCon.
When the trailer dropped for Season 8 of Vanderpump Rules last week, it was no surprise to see Kristen Doute on the outs with former best friends Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney-Schwartz.
After all, when reports surfaced that Kristen wasn’t present at Stassi‘s engagement party over the summer, the latter’s mother confirmed that the trio had once again fallen out during filming. In a pair of new interviews, Kristen finally broke her silence on the rift and where she stands with her erstwhile BFFs.
Some viewers cannot understand how the Vanderpump Rules cast friendships work. Most of them are friends with their exes. Many of them are best friends with their former enemies. Overall, there are just a lot of relationships that buck conventional wisdom. And this is why the show is so interesting to watch.
It feels like a whole lifetime ago when Jax Taylor ripped off his white, chunky sweater to fight for a reconciliation with Stassi Schroeder. I will never forget that era of television. It was truly classic. Nevertheless, so much has changed since then. Jax and Brittany Cartwright got married in Kentucky castle back in June. Beau Clark proposed to Stassi in a cemetery soon after. And, as the fans know, they’re all friends. Stassi was even a bridesmaid in Jax and Brittany’s wedding. Sure, it makes sense now. However, it seemed like such a long shot back in the early seasons to think about Stassi being a bridesmaid in Jax’s wedding.
The trailer for Vanderpump Rules Season 8 dropped last week and it looked good. Season 7 wasn’t the best since most of the cast got along and they’ve all settled down with serious relationships. We needed more and it looks like Season 8 will deliver.
Anyone who has followed the news in between seasons knows that there are some feuds brewing in Season 8. With that said, we already knew about Jax Taylor’s fall out with Tom Sandoval, although the exact cause is still unclear. The same can be said for Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney’s highly-publicized issues with Kristen Doute. Neither of those plot points was a “surprise” to anyone who saw the trailer, but the dramatic music along with those flashback clips paired with the Lisa Vanderpump narration got me hyped. And so did the new cast members. It’s comeback season Pump Rules. After many viewers yawned throughout last season, they’ve brought in some reinforcements. Let’s meet the new people.
eternally single former SURver on Vanderpump Rules has another project in the works! Since being fired from Lisa Vanderpump’s sexy, unique retirement home Kristen has managed to keep her spot on Pump Rules. She hasn’t done it by emoting words of wisdom. She hasn’t done it by her exceptional friendship skills. And she hasn’t don’t it by maintaining a compelling storyline. Basically Kristen has kept her job by acting like that one adult in your life you speak to like a toddler because they are always about 2 minutes away from a massive freak out. Also, this is reality television, so it works.
Kristen has dabbled in several money-making ventures since leaving SUR. She participated in selling
whine wine with Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder. Kristen also has her own line of clothes. But what she’s most known for is her lack of impulse control. What she calls “crazy”. Now Kristen is parlaying her crazy into the world of literature. That’s right folks, Kristen is writing a self-help book.
After last week’s incredibly cringeworthy Real Housewives of Orange County episode, we all need a palate cleanser. Let’s check in with
Fancy Pants Heather Dubrow and see what she’s up to. Since leaving RHOC, Heather has kept busy with her enormous house. You might have seen Heather and husband, Dr. Terry Dubrow, selling their skincare line on QVC. She also hosts her own podcast called, Heather Dubrow’s World.
All of that along with wrangling her four children is a lot. Now we mustn’t forget that Heather is first and foremost an actress! Why, she’s been on Malibu Country! Sadly, that show ended in 2013. Heather even had a part on Hot In Cleveland! Unfortunately, that show’s final episode aired in 2015. So what else has been keeping the former Housewife busy? If you guessed stand-up comedy, you might be right!
Peace and harmony amongst the Vanderpump Rules Witches of WeHo trio of Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute and Katie Maloney was bound to end at some point. We’ve seen the three at odds many times before. For instance, when Kristen admitted to sleeping with Stassi’s ex-boyfriend, Jax Taylor. Or when Stassi treated Katie and Kristen like crap, moved to New York to be with Patrick Meagher, and then came groveling back when she couldn’t make it on her own.
However, the trio was in a good place last season. The only hitch happened to be Kristen’s
deadbeat boyfriend Brian Carter. Stassi and Katie made it loud and clear they felt Brian was taking advantage of Kristen, but Kristen wasn’t having it. Still, everything seemed fine between them. Until the past several months, that is.
Fall season is in full swing! And that means an abundance of everything pumpkin flavored, and we are that much closer to watching the newest season of Vanderpump Rules. Luckily, some of the drama has already been on social media. Time to spill the
tea pumpkin spice latte.
First, Stassi Schroeder didn’t invite Kristen Doute to her engagement party. Who was there to cause drunken mayhem then? Jax Taylor blocked most of the cast on social media. He also hasn’t taken kindly to the newest
threats to his job security peeps to join the cast. Scheana Marie has been having fun dating other reality TV stars who may or may not be able to hang a TV in under seven minutes. And there is another bit of Scheana news, in that she may have a potential new ally on the show.
