Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd hosted the Vanderpump Dogs Gala last week in Los Angeles. “Coincidentally” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast members are currently on their cast trip in Rome. Try to convince me that timing is an accident. Now, everyone has a perfectly acceptable excuse for not attending the event/supporting the cause.
Nevertheless, there were some RHOBH alums in the house. Get ready for this one: Kim Richards was there… wearing what looked like the choker she had on from the Season 1 finale. You know, the necklace from that infamous scene where she accused Kyle Richards of stealing her goddamned house in the back of a limo. I would love to know how Kyle felt about Kim attending the event. Could Kim be trying to pull a Parent Trap and unite Lisa and Kyle? She does want them to make up, after all. RHOBH OG and eternal shit-stirrer Camille Grammer attended. I guess that bad blood with LVP was short-lived.
When Tom Schwartz isn’t in the hot seat for blacking out and kissing women who aren’t Katie Maloney, he’s usually stuck in the middle of his two best friends. It’s no secret that there is a sort of hierarchy (in the guy’s heads) among Tom 2, Tom Sandoval, and Jax Taylor. Tom 1 and Jax are often at odds over who gets to be the “number one guy” in the group. The tension between those two is definitely going to be at the forefront of Season 8 of Vanderpump Rules. January 7 cannot come fast enough!
We’re also going to see a lot of things we never thought we’d see on Pump Rules this season. First, Jax gets married – to Kentucky sweetheart Brittany Cartwright. Then Stassi Schroeder gets engaged to Beau Clark. And rumor has it we will actually see Randall Emmett, Lala Kent’s fiancé on camera. As much as things change though, they also stay the same.
Is it January yet? I cannot wait for the return of Vanderpump Rules. Season 8 is definitely going to make up for the lackluster Season 7. The first trailer looked great, the new people seem dramatic, and I am so pumped (pun intended).
The fans at BravoCon were blessed with an additional Season 8 supertease and I can tell you with confidence that Season 8 is going to be nothing short of amazing.
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.
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.
At the end of the day, no one can escape cancer. It doesn’t matter how rich you are or how famous you’ve become, this disease affects everyone. If you are lucky enough not to have it, you probably know someone who does. In 2018, Vanderpump Rules star, Ariana Madix was diagnosed with melanoma. This is obviously a far cry from the usual news we get from the Pump Rules camp. This does not involve alcohol or betraying a significant other. Nothing was filmed to provoke sympathy or attention.
We might actually be able to learn something from this one. And really, everyone should heed the warning. Ariana and longtime love Tom Sandoval were busy living their best lives. But while they were buying big houses and creating fancy cocktail books, something not so great was happening in Ariana’s body. She questioned her physician repeatedly over the years about a mark on her skin, and finally it was tested. Now Ariana is opening up about her diagnosis and subsequent surgery. She also has a message we should all listen to.
Whether you agree with the results or not, the people have spoken. The People’s Choice Awards went down on November 10 and there were some big winners in the reality TV categories. And even the people who didn’t win showed up
to get some press enjoy the party.
I’m not gonna lie, I wish I got an invite because there were cast members from some of my favorite shows in attendance and I would just love to see them all interact. Real Housewives, Vanderpump Rules, The Bachelor, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians cast members showed up for the award show.
Well, this comes as a surprise to exactly no one. Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright were wed in holy matrimony this past summer. Lucky for us, we will get the chance to see this blessed event on the upcoming season of Vanderpump Rules. Yes guys and gals, Brit finally got her man – and most of her bridesmaids had her man too. It was a wedding party only Jesus could love!
Brittany and Jax have certainly weathered many storms on the road to wedded bliss. There was the time Jax lied about flirting with Lala Kent and threw her under the bus. And we cannot forget the trashtastic liaison Jax had with Faith Stowers, a thirsty SUR waitress. But Jax is a changed man! Gone are the days of his transient indiscretions! His slate has been wiped clean by God and Brittany’s short term memory. If only that were the case. Now we are finding out that there is some wiggle room in Jax and Brittany’s unbreakable bond, and it’s totally fine – as long as Jax approves of the wiggler.
