He Vander Pump Rules The renaissance is in full swing, with most of the cast frolicking in West Hollywood to film the highly anticipated eleventh season of the show.
That’s good news for many reasons, one of which is that with two Hollywood unions now on strike, compelling TV might be hard to come by this fall!
Initially, there were fears that the cast would refuse to film together after the tension tore their group of friends apart in season 10.
(In case you’ve been living under a rock in a cave on Mars for the past five months, Tom Sandoval cheated on Ariana Madix with Raquel Leviss, and is now the most hated man on TV.)
most of vander pump The cast has cut contact with Sandoval, but it appears they are still willing to appear on camera with him.
Or at least, they’re willing to get drunk in the same place, which should be enough to create some of the drama that keeps fans tuned in!
according to a new report From TMZ, Tom and Ariana were spotted at Lisa Vanderpump’s SOUTH restaurant on Tuesday.
James Kennedy was DJing that night, and as fans know, the man places great importance on his weekly “See You Next Tuesday” event.
Like the rest of the cast, James isn’t a huge fan of Sandoval right now, and as Raquel’s ex-fiancé, he has every reason to be angry.
So DJ James probably wasn’t thrilled with Tom’s decision to crash the party.
But while most of the cast are already taking on each other in WeHo’s drunkest hot spots, Raquel has yet to film a single scene.
Experts say Leviss is hoping for more money, while representatives for the former beauty queen say she’s just taking a break to focus on her mental health.
“She wants to get as much money as possible, so she’s playing hardball,” a source close to the situation tells Page Six.
The source added that the female cast members of VPR are planning to take a girls’ trip to Lake Tahoe next week, and the producers hope Raquel will participate.
“For the right price, she’ll be there,” says the source.
It will surely be an unpleasant moment for Raquel.
But we guess most people would be willing to put up with a bit of verbal abuse if it meant earning six figures just to party on camera!
We’re not complaining about that arrangement, mind you!
It’s delivered some gloriously entertaining results so far, and we’re sure VPR Season 11 is going to be great!
