If there is one thing I make sure I set aside time for during the hustle and bustle of the crazy work week, it is my reality TV. Whether that be the Bravo Housewives franchise, Siesta Key, or Million Dollar Listing, I am guaranteed to be watching, and with many, many thoughts. This week in particular, I caught up with one of the OG Bravo shows, and that is Vanderpump Rules. If you have ever caught a glimpse of this show, you know that there is just a tiny little bit of treasure hidden amongst all of the trash that is this show. Dare I call it, a guilty pleasure.
If you are among the individuals that have not yet seen this show, allow me to give you a little back story. Vanderpump Rules is a show based around the Queen of Beverly Hills herself, Lisa Vanderpump. This business superwoman along with her husband Ken, own several happening spots around the Los Angeles area that have now loosely become tourist locations simply because of the show! These happening spots include SUR restaurant, along with Pump and Villa Blanca. The show follows the lives of the waiters, waitresses, bartenders, and even hostesses of these restaurants. Now, I know what you’re thinking, especially if you yourself have one of these jobs.. how are their lives exciting enough to have a reality show based around them? Believe it or not, it is possible, and it is pure gold.
If you are an avid watcher of the show like myself, I am sure you have your favorites, and those that you could simply do without. Let us discuss those people for a minute, shall we? Jax Taylor… I mean c’mon Bravo, let’s not give this man a platform! Within the past few weeks we have seen his relationship with Brittany completely unfold as scandal after scandal have come to fruition. He is cheating on Brittany without a morsel of remorse, which is the most mind-blowing part! This innocent girl has left her family and home in Kentucky to be with you, and you are treating her like trash. Also- can we discuss the look on Jax face when Kristen Doute surprised Brittany with her mom and siblings. THAT my friend, was epic. The worst part of all, is poor Brittany is staying with this slime ball! She has been completely tricked by this man who has and will continue to take advantage of how nice she is, shame on you, Jax Taylor.
Moving on to Sunday’s episode… it was truly a winner. Leave it to Stassi Schroeder to give us the prestigious content that the viewers need and deserve. During this episode, we see the two queen bees Ariana and
Stassi, duel off in their annual birthday bashes. First of all, I found both birthday parties to be on the strange side, but Stassi’s random and unexpected freak out at the end!? Where did that come from, that is the question that I am left with. My last and final note is that Lala deserves her own show, she is a gem. The upcoming previews for the rest of the season look absolutely fabulous and I cannot wait to follow along, am I right?!
