According to the press release for the Vanderpump Rules reunion, it’s going to be a good one. So much so that it’s a three part series!
On track to deliver its highest rated season ever “Vanderpump Rules” Season 5 is averaging 2.4 million total viewers and nearly 1.7 million P24-54, up 3% and 4% respectively from the prior season.
On Monday, April 3 at 8 PM, the three-part reunion kicks off with Andy seeking the truth about the Kristen and Brittany hookup, Katie’s attack on Schwartz’s manhood, and James, who is shockingly seated next to Jax, addresses the cheating rumors. Lisa Vanderpump recounts the emotions of celebrating Gay Pride in the wake of a tragedy, and Lala Kent makes an unexpected return to reignite her feud with Stassi, Kristen and Katie. Andy has a hilarious visit with the SUR cooks, and Lala receives an unanticipated apology from the most unlikely source.
The reunion continues on Monday, April 10 at 8 PM with Andy addressing Lala about the rumors of her dating a married man and why she disappeared from SUR without explanation. Stassi’s little brother Nikolai joins the reunion to offer the cast some tough love and much-needed life advice. Brittany expresses her anger with Kristen for using a picture of Jax’s unmentionable in her comedy routine, Scheana confronts Katie about her drinking and things get heated when Ariana calls Stassi out for being manipulative.
The reunion concludes on Monday, April 17 at 8 PM as Lisa explains why she initially refused to officiate Katie and Tom’s wedding. James lashes out at Jax and Kristen for sabotaging his show and Tom and Ariana discuss being blamed for all the problems in Katie’s relationship. Lisa tells Schwartz he blew his chance to go into business with her and Ariana explains why she won’t marry Sandoval. Finally, Scheana shares an emotional moment with her estranged husband, Michael Shay, to discuss the disintegration of their relationship.
Andy and Jax have alluded to the last part of the reunion being very uncomfortable and awkward. This is when Shay and Scheana talk about their divorce. They both accuse the other of cheating and things get ugly. Also, I guess LVP’s talk about opening a bar with Schwartz was just storyline as it is not an option by the time the reunion filmed.
