Tuesday Morning Tea- May 5, 2020: The Stories You Need To See

We can’t cover every news story ourselves. Fortunately, there are a lot of great sources for reality TV news and gossip. Check out these links from some of our favorite sites in the May 5 edition of Tuesday Morning Tea.

Vanderpump Rules Katie Maloney

James Kennedy has been on another apology tour this season on Vanderpump Rules. This is his storyline pretty much every season, but this time there’s a major difference. James’ last main supporter, his girlfriend Raquel Leviss, has finally had enough. She put her foot down and gave him an ultimatum. Either he stops drinking completely and goes to AA meetings, or she is out.

It seems like Raquel threatening to leave finally got through to James. His whole demeanor seems different, and his energy is much calmer. He has been going to meetings, staying sober, and appears to be working a recovery program.  Part of working the program is making amends to those whom you have wronged, and James had big amends to make with Katie Maloney. On last week’s episode, he finally bit the bullet and offered Katie a surprisingly humble and convincing apology at the SUR-Tom Tom softball game. Even more surprising was Katie’s acceptance of his apology and agreement to dead their issues once and for all. So what made this apology different from all of the others that James has offered up in the past?

Katie Maloney & Stassi Schroeder Think That Kristen Doute Made Them “Look Like Bitches” On Vanderpump Rules

Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder is finally engaged to sweet, loveable Beau Clark. Beau popped the question at a cemetery. Who says romance is dead? The only person not invited to celebrate at the engagement party was Kristen Doute.

Viewers of Pump Rules have watched this season as Stassi and Katie Maloney kicked Kristen out of the Witches of WeHo. Katie and Stassi made it clear at the wine launch for their rose Potion No. 2 that they also wanted to end this business arrangement with Kristen.

The kids from Vanderpump Rules have given us a whole different vibe this season. Can I even call them kids anymore? No, I guess I really can’t. We were lured into the show with messy breakups, cheating, flings, and physical violence. Those days are long gone and while there is still some drama,the cast has grown up. I mean, the drama hits a little different when people are arguing about who gets to be in their wedding. Speaking of, as if you didn’t already know (snort), Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright got married. Not only did they talk about it all season but the episode was quite the affair. They all bought houses, most notably Ariana Madix with Tom Sandoval and Katie Maloney with husband, Tom Schwartz. Finally, Stassi Schroeder and her fan fav of a boyfriend, Beau Clark, got engaged.

It’s no surprise that this tight knit crew came together to celebrate the event, like they did the others. But not everyone thinks the cast should be, well, as tight as they appear to be.

Stassi Schroeder Vanderpump Rules

After over a month of Vanderpump Rules episodes leading up to this moment, Beau Clark finally proposes to Stassi Schroeder tonight. The big moment is actually the most Stassi proposal ever, in a graveyard, and filmed by a camera crew, of course.

Most of the cast is invited to celebrate the engagement at Lisa Vanderpump’s house. However, Kristen Doute did not make the cut, yet there’s an empty chair there, for everyone to awkwardly feel her presence. Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright try to comfort Kristen for feeling left out, but something tells me she’s still going to be upset regardless.

Will Kristen Doute mend her friendships with Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney now that she’s officially done talking about Carter? Well, it’s unclear if she’s actually done talking about him, but she is dating someone. Recently, the news broke that Kristen is dating a guy named Alex Menache. Apparently, he’s a close friend of Tom Schwartz’s.

Unfortunately for us, Vanderpump Rules is a bit behind real life. This means we will probably have to hear a lot more about Carter. Ugh.

Lisa Vanderpump Jax Taylor

As if 2020 couldn’t get any crazier, Jax Taylor is now doling out relationship advice. Yes, he and his wife Brittany Cartwright miraculously made it down the aisle last year. This has led to Jax believing he’s some sort of relationship expert. Call me crazy, but I still think Jax is the last person on earth I’d take dating advice from.

Chatting with Lisa Vanderpump, Jax and Lisa expressed their very strong opinions and threw shade about fellow Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Marie’s dating life.

Vanderpump Rules Star Kristen Doute’s New Boyfriend Has Been Identified

It seems like the Carter chapter of Vanderpump Rules is finally over! Or at least it is in real life. Who knows how many more episodes Kristen Doute will mention his name this season? But, at least she has a new man.

Kristen has been teasing her new relationship for a while, but she hadn’t officially confirmed his identity.
