Vanderpump Rules Cast At War Following Taping Of Season 8
Just weeks after the cast of Vanderpump Rules gathered for Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding, some serious drama has apparently gone down. Taylor just unfollowed several of his co-stars on Instagram, including his best man, and no one in the cast is talking about what happened.
Taylor has unfollowed Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, Kristen Doute , and Scheana Shay, and they have all returned the favor. The SUR bartender still follows Stassi Schroeder, Beau Clark, Lala Kent, Katie Maloney, and Tom Schwartz.
Sandoval and Schwartz were Taylor’s co-best men at his wedding, and everyone in the cast (except James Kennedy and Billie Lee) was either part of the wedding party or an invited guest.
An insider claims that the problems between Taylor and some of his co-stars started in June when he and Cartwright decided to have former NSYNC star Lance Bass officiate the ceremony. Apparently, it didn’t sit well with Sandoval and Madix because they felt Bass was included only because he is a celebrity.
During a recent episode of the Straight Up with Stassi podcast, Schroeder and Clark talked about how difficult it has been to shoot Season 8, but they didn’t reveal any details about what went on between Taylor and the other cast members. However, she did talk about her broken friendship with Doute.
"We're at the homestretch from filming, I have a few days left. My brain is mush," said Schroeder, with Clark adding, "My emotions are shot."
Schroeder added that the drama was killing her, and she couldn’t talk about it anymore because she was “literally dead inside.”
Doute was not a part of Schroeder and Clark’s engagement celebration on July 31st at Villa Rosa - Lisa Vanderpump’s home - but Stassi’s mom Dayna said that both girls will grow, change, and eventually come back to their original strong friendship bond.
“Don't you worry, it's like Lion King and the circle of life…” said Dayna.
Just one day before Schroeder announced her engagement, she joined Doute and Maloney at Farmhouse restaurant at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles for the launch of their Witches of WeHo Potion No. 2 Basic Witch Rosé. The ladies talked about how they don’t argue over their wine business, but their friendship is a different story.
Schroeder said their business collaboration has had its share of ups and downs, but they only argue about “friend stuff.”
Filming has officially wrapped on Season 8, and new episodes of Vanderpump Rules will premiere on Bravo later this year.
