Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne spent several seasons showing viewers very little of her actual life. This season viewers have watched Erika preparing to step onto the Broadway stage as Roxie in Chicago. Unfortunately, the show had to close in March of 2020 because of the coronavirus. Camille Grammer criticized Erika for using the show for self-promotion, and not featuring her real life. Erika has promoted her book and her music on the show a lot.
We also watched Erika verbally spar with Denise Richards’ husband, Aaron Phypers, during Season 10 of RHOBH. Erika does not appreciate husbands getting into housewives’ business.
Lisa Vanderpump’s life is never boring, but right now she is dealing with a lot of changes. Vanderpump Rules axed stars Kristen Doute, Stassi Schroeder, Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens for racist behavior.
In addition, like the rest of us, Lisa has been dealing with the fall-out from the coronavirus epidemic. Lisa and her husband Ken Todd own four restaurants in Los Angeles: SUR, Villa Blanca, PUMP, and TomTom. They have been closed due to Covid-19, as has Vanderpump Cocktail Garden At Caesars Palace in Los Vegas.
There has been a lot happening in the Vanderpump Rules universe. First off, Bravo has finally been reacting to the Black Lives Matter movement. On June 9, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired from the show for racist behavior. Newbie Pump Rules stars Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens were also given pink slips when racially insensitive tweets from the past came back to bite them.
In 2018, Vanderpump Rules alum Faith Stowers slept with Jax Taylor. As if that wasn’t punishment enough, Kristen and Stassi told the police that Faith was stealing watches and drugging men. Faith, of course, was innocent. Stassi and Kristen? Not at all.
The economy may be reopening again, but many businesses are still closing their doors or laying off workers due to the Coronavirus pandemic. And that includes businesses and employees of Bravo reality TV stars too. Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump hoped her restaurants would survive the shut down. Vanderpump Rules stars Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz even helped raise money for Lisa’s out of work staff.
And now another RHOBH star is feeling the effects of the pandemic. Anyone who watches the show knows that Kyle Richard’s husband, Mauricio Umansky, owns a successful real estate company called The Agency. We all know this because Kyle wears Agency swag every episode, and Mauricio has a giant party at their home celebrating the company at least once a season. And unfortunately for Mauricio, the party seems to be over.
Most people like to lay low following a massive scandal so they can regroup, reflect, and ultimately, reinvent themselves for the better. However, former Vanderpump Rules cast member Stassi Schroeder is just not one of those people with (seemingly) staged paparazzi photos and early pregnancy announcements. What racism scandals? As a result of her racially offensive behavior, she got dropped by many brands. Her podcast was removed from all platforms. Her agent and publicist cut ties with her. She got fired from Vanderpump Rules. Then, she hired a crisis management team.
But at least, she has one good thing going on right now. Stassi and Beau Clark are expecting their first child in January
and have been using this news to deflect from the Faith Stowers scandal and build up some goodwill.
The longtime Vanderpump Rules have seen a lot of changes among the cast members. Some of them have grown into better people. Others are just getting into even more trouble than they were before.
One person who has seen a lot, from the very beginning is Peter Madrigal. He’s been on the show since day one and he runs Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant SUR, as one of the managers.
At this point, it’s tough not to think “what’s the point” when it comes to finishing out this season of Vanderpump Rules. We all know that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni got fired. Without Stassi, it’s obvious that Beau Clark won’t film next season. Rumor has it that Jax Taylor might be next on the chopping block. Or at least that’s what some fans want in addition to some disgruntled VPR alums.
So, it just feels a little bit fruitless to watch this final reunion episode. However, the TV options during the coronavirus pandemic are rather limited, so here we are.
Another day, another cancellation for Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute! First, fans found out that Stassi and Kristen were fired from Vanderpump Rules for racist actions towards former Pump Rules star, Faith Stowers. Following that announcement, pretty much any brand affiliated with the twosome had cut ties.
Stassi was dropped by her PR team, and then her podcast was removed from all platforms. I’m guessing her book, Next Level Basic: The Definitive Basic Bitch Handbook, has hit the bargain shelf with fifty percent off stickers slapped onto it. And Kristen’s book, He’s Making You Crazy, is probably right along side it. So, what’s next to end up on the bargain shelf? Well, there is yet another venture of theirs that recently got cancelled as well.
