“Add some new cast members,” they said. “It will be fun,” they said. And then all the fun and games were disrupted by racially insensitive tweets that just resurfaced.
New Vanderpump Rules stars Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens came under fire this week when their old tweets resurfaced. I’m sure they’re longing for the days when avoiding Scheana Marie was their biggest problem. Now, they are in some serious hot water. They both used the “n-word.” Many times. Now, their Pump Rules costar Lala Kent is weighing in on the drama.
We are only two episodes in with the current Vanderpump Rules season, and it’s already shaping up to be the girls vs. Kristen Doute. Yes, I know that not every woman is involved in this feud, but Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder are over Kristen’s confusing relationship with Brian Carter and the feud is eclipsing the season.
Lala Kent even got up in Kristen’s face during the premiere episode to share her opinions. It’s unclear what happened throughout the course of filming, but as of this moment, in the present day, Kristen is still on the outs with Stassi and Katie, her longtime best friends.
After a blah Season 7, viewers were excited for some new cast members to join Vanderpump Rules for Season 8. The first two episodes have been good. Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens were building up some good drama… and then they brought some drama that’s unacceptable.
Old tweets filled with racist remarks and other ignorant comments resurfaced on both Brett and Max’s accounts. The tweets are from a few years ago, but some fans found them, took screenshots, and they both ended up issuing apologies this week. Now, their boss Lisa Vanderpump is sharing her thoughts on the incidents.
Another day, another batch of resurfaced tweets from a Vanderpump Rules star. It turns out that Brett Caprioni has more in common with Max Boyens than avoiding Scheana Marie’s call.
Just like Max, Brett has a lot of tweets using the n-word in his past. Why is this becoming a trend at Bravo. These Vanderpump Rules guys are giving the Real Housewives of Dallas a run for their money with the
racism culturally insensitive remarks.
Up until now, the biggest problem Vanderpump Rules had with Max Boyens was trying to tell him and Brett Caprioni apart. They both have some Scheana Marie-related drama and they look so similar.
Well, now Max may be known as “the one with the racist tweets.” What is going on at Bravo lately? First LeeAnne Locken with the “Mexican” comments. Then a video resurfaced of Brandi Redmond mocking Asians. Now, Max’s tweets from 2012 have resurfaced and he dropped the n-word. A lot.
Unlike most other reality TV shows, the Vanderpump Rules crew actually does hang out when the cameras aren’t rolling. It’s not like the Real Housewives shows when they take a big break and spend the first two episodes of every season “catching up.”
The Vanderpump Rules socializing and the Vanderpump Rules drama go all year round. That’s why it’s so sad that Kristen Doute is on the outs with Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney. Kristen is the one who introduced Stassi and her now-fiancé Beau Clark, yet she wasn’t there when they celebrated the proposal. Stassi’s frienemies (at best) Scheana Marie and Ariana Madix were at the post-proposal celebration at Lisa Vanderpump’s mansion, but Kristen wasn’t. Stassi’s mom Dayna Schroeder confirmed a rift between Kristen and Stassi soon after the proposal, but nothing has really changed. Kristen also wasn’t invited to the formal engagement party a few weeks later. That really has to sting.
Vanderpump Rules has found itself at a crosshairs. Last night I witnessed Jax Taylor and Katie Maloney behave like mature-ish adults as they attempted to set some reasonable boundaries with Kristen Doute and Brian Carter about how their toxic codependency is affecting everyone else’s lives.
I mean I know Jax was just cosplaying the dad from Family Ties because he’s about to be a married
adulterer adulter soon, but this show is not supposed to be about capable adults acting accordingly. Vanderpump Rules is supposed to be about drunken, unhinged twenty-somethings who screw, scheme, and cry their way through terrible choices and still emerge with flawless skin.
On that vein, absolutely nobody cares about Jax’s wedding to Brittany Cartwright. Brittany sincerely believes everyone is as invested in her bridal registry and knot.com page as she is. Also this wedding that she’s planning has absolutely nothing to do with Jax, who might as well be a rent-a-fiance from some Hallmark Movie about proving to your judgmental small town relatives that you’re not an unmarriageable career woman, repugnant to blandly attractive men in tight sweaters. This wedding is about Brittany living out her fantasy, and her friends would rather let her merry hijack them than Kristen’s misery. I don’t blame them!
Southern Charm’s Shep Rose is someone who lives life on his own terms. Shep generally does and says whatever he pleases, which sometimes can get him into trouble. Last year, he made fun of a homeless woman in an Instagram post, resulting in him apologizing and shutting down his Twitter account for a time. Shep has also had dust-ups with co-stars, including Craig Conover and Madison LeCroy, and even got into a Twitter feud with The Rock.
Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright called out Shep on Watch What Happens Live last week for his behavior at their wedding. When asked which one of their guests’ behavior was the most annoying at their summer nuptials, the couple bestowed the honor on Shep. He had posted pictures of their wedding online, including Brittany walking down the aisle. Understandably, neither Jax nor Brittany were happy about it. As usual, Shep had something to say about the matter and took to social media to defend himself.
