Billie Lee has definitely lived up to the phrase “do not go gentle into that good night.” Recently, she dropped the bombshell she quit Vanderpump Rules to focus on an anti-bullying campaign, and that she was bullied on the show. Welcome to the club Billie! You are now members with Scheana Marie, Lala Kent, James Kennedy, Raquel Leviss, Tom Schwartz…
Then Billie announced the news that she is ready to have a baby. She’s in a good head space, and even made up with Lala, who was there to support her during some dark times she had while on the show. And it’s pretty amazing they made up considering they were at each others throats during brunch and at Scheana’s housewarming party. Billie still has more to talk about, and this time it’s about the cast.
These are the best days of our lives! Vanderpump Rules stars Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix have been living the dream. The couple recently purchased a home for a modest $2 million, showing us that reality TV bartending pays off! We also watched last season as Tom became a junior partner with Tom Schwartz in Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd’s bar TomTom. The Toms, of course, arrived in style to the opening in a his and his motorcycle/sidecar. And we watched again as Tom and Ariana defended each other with love and ease against outside forces.
Needless to say, this couple is goals. Sure, they have their differences, but a lot of them aren’t really anyone’s business. Tom and Ariana always seem to be able to communicate through them. Pump Rules fans know that one such issue was that Ariana wanted to publish a cocktail book on her own – so she could have something for herself. (Preach!) The couple has since compromised on the issue, and now that cocktail book has a release date!
When Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark announced their engagement last week, I noticed two things. First, that ring is gigantic. Way to go, Beau. Second, Kristen Doute was MIA. She didn’t comment on any of the Instagram posts. She didn’t even click “like” until days later. Yes, I was actively checking. And, yes, I’m very ashamed of that. Let’s move on.
After the proposal, their families and Vanderpump Rules cast members gathered at Lisa Vanderpump’s house for a celebration. Kristen was MIA. Again. Is she still banned from Villa Rosa? Well, she probably is, but there’s more to her absence than that. Or at least that’s what Stassi’s mom Dayna Schroeder has hinted at.
Billie Lee has had quite the busy summer. Last month she was off celebrating Pride with Andy Cohen and the Bravo gang in New York City. Which just happened to be at the same time as Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s
made for TV wedding. I know I’d choose attending Pride over that Disney princess themed farce.
Shortly after that, she mentioned she cut down her role on the show to focus on her activism in the trans community. Then, Billie shared the news that she decided to quit Vanderpump Rules to focus on an anti-bullying campaign. I’m sure her experiences with Katie Maloney, Stassi Schroeder, and Kristen Doute made her a master on the subject matter. And now Billie has even more news to share.
Well, our prayers have been answered you guys. Another single one bites the dust in the Vanderpump Rules game of love. With this turn of events, the only people not engaged or in a relationship is myself and Kristen Doute. Anytotalspinster, Stassi Schroeder has seen her fair share of dating woes. When viewers first met Stassi, she was trying to tame bad boy Jax Taylor. At the time, Jax wasn’t marriage material. He wound up cheating on Stassi and getting a random Vegas girl pregnant. Good thing he changed for the better, amirite?
Stassi then turned her attention towards Frank the Bartender. Smarmy Frank found himself bribing Stassi for a whopping $900, or he would release a very… revealing video of the former SURver. Thankfully Lisa Vanderpump paid him to go away. Then there was probably the biggest
twat mistake Stassi made, Patrick Meagher. This guy was a real winner, he wore his misogynist comments better than he wore his hair. After a painful relationship with multiple gaslighting sessions, Stassi finally saw the error of her ways. Patrick spoke down to Lisa on camera, and he disappeared shortly thereafter. Enter Beau Clark. Sweet, hipster Beau seemed to be the perfect man for Stassi. Her friends accept him, her mom REALLY likes him, and she fell madly in love. Now Stassi and Beau are joining the rest of the crew and officially adulting. Ready or not, another wedding is coming.
Minus the big events, like Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding in Kentucky, the Vanderpump Rules Season 8 details have remained under wraps. Well, minus the gossip that Lance Bass leaked the (alleged) status of Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s marriage.
Lance isn’t the only one leaking the Pump Rules news though. Or at least that is what it seems like. Did Lala Kent spill the beans about a new addition to the show? That’s up for interpretation at this point, but let’s get into the evidence.
One might say Kristen Doute is unlucky in love. During her tenure on Vanderpump Rules, viewers watched Kristen cheat on long-term boyfriend, Tom Sandoval. She moved on with James Kennedy.After her saga with James ended, she briefly shagged Aleks Taldykin from Below Deck. When Kristen finally met Brian Carter on a dating app, love blossomed and the two began their journey of romance.
Not all relationships are meant to last. Especially in Kristen’s case. As she watched her friends get married and move into multi-million dollar homes, her love affair with Carter began to crumble. Relationship experts Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney advised Kristen to leave Carter because he was basically living off of Kristen’s paycheck. Viewers had hoped Kristen found her happily ever after, but it wasn’t to be. Now there is new evidence Kristen and Carter
haven’t stopped banging have reignited the flames of desire, making the dating world a safer place to be once again.
It’s official, Vanderpump Rules fans– Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor are hitched! The couple made it official on June 29 and got married at the Kentucky Castle. Nearly every Pumps Rules star was at the wedding. Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval performed “best men” duties, while Lala’s fiancé, Randall Emmett, and SUR manager Peter Madrigal stood up for Jax. Katie Maloney attended Brittany as her matron of honor. Lala Kent, Ariana Madix, Scheana Marie, Stassi Schroeder and Kristin Doute served as members of the bridal party. Other Bravo guests included former Summer House stars Stephen McGee and Lauren Wirkus and Southern Charm star Shep Rose.
John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, are such fans of the show that they were invited to the wedding. Alas, the superstars didn’t attend. Can you imagine if they had been there, and John serenaded the couple at their reception?
