Well, another summer is almost at an end.
It’s a bummer in many respects, but fall offers much to look forward to — the return of football, memes about how much pumpkin spice flavoring sucks, and of course, a new season of Vanderpump Rules.
After emerging as a surprise hit on Bravo’s roster back in 2013 Vanderpump has consistently delivered the goods for seven solid seasons now.
But there’s no denying that the series has reached the point where most reality shows begin to show their age.
Four cast members will get married this season (turns out Tom and Katie’s first wedding wasn’t legal), and now that Stassi is engaged to Beau Clark, with the exception of Kristen Doute, the entire cast is paired off in serious relationships.
(In case you missed it, Billie Lee has quit the show. Newcomers often have a hard time with this bunch.)
That’s great for the cast, but contented homebodies aren’t known for delivering dramatic fireworks, which could spell trouble for the future of the show.
Fortunately, the ladies and gents who pretend to work at SUR remain as petty as ever, and if the feuds among them are fake, then they all deserve acting Emmys.
This time around, it’s Kristen Doute who’s been cast out of the Witches of WeHo.
The cause of the beef is unclear, but multiple sources have confirmed that Kristen is no longer on speaking terms with Stassi Schroeder or Katie Maloney.
Over the weekend, Doute held a launch party for her new t-shirt line, and while Katie’s husband, Tom Schwartz, was on hand, she and Stassi were conspicuously absent.
Stassi’s mother, Dayna Schroeder, confirmed on Instagram that there’s some bad blood, calling the feud “quite sad.”
“I didn’t really know all the particulars. So I was out of the loop for awhile,” Dayna Schroeder explained.
“Don’t you worry, it’s like Lion King and the circle of life. ….each one of these girls will grow, change and come back to their original strong friendship bond that they’ve always had. Somethings just take time.”
We’re gonna guess that that quote was delivered after more than a few Pump-tinis!
Anyway, Stassi mentioned the feud in passing on her podcast this week, but did not go into detail:
“We’re at the homestretch from filming, I have a few days left. My brain is mush,” Schroeder told Clark during her latest episode.
“The drama is killing me. I can’t anymore. I can’t talk about this s–t anymore,” she continued. “I’m literally dead inside.”
Suddenly, we can’t freakin’ wait for fall!
