Welcome to this week’s Vanderpump Rules recap! It’s time for Pride and it is The Toms first time hosting a Pride event at TomTom. They are a bit worried that James Kennedy will be drinking. But James is so good at what he does, and he has a lot of fans so it makes financial sense to take the risk. LVP apparently broke her foot when she stubbed her toe. It also looks like she got some new swans. Did she already have a black pair? I vaguely remember Mohammed giving her another pair a while back.
There is an odd scene of SUR waitstaff making Pride posters and coloring on LVP’s back porch? Scheana and Raquel are there too. This seems ridiculous. It’s Pride not a high school football game. Have signs made like a business person who is making a profit would. This just says, “we’re broke.” UPDATE: We never saw those adolescent posters at Pride. Why is LVP telling the girls about Pride as if they have never been? We see them go every year. I am a little bit crabby tonight I went to Hatha yoga early this morning and suffered through the pain in class and then felt GREAT when I got home so I hand turned the (small ) garden with a shovel. Now my back hurts and CBD is not touching it. So sorry expect me to be an even bigger bitch than usual.
Coloring At Villa Rosa
Raquel says that James is doing great and no one is giving James any credit for his psuedosobriety. Then, Lisa and Scheana talk alone. LVP tries to get Scheana to lighten up on Dayna and stop being jealous over Max. Then, we get Scheana denying that she is jealous of Dayna seventeen different ways. LVP want Scheana to be friends with Dayna. I doubt that will happen this season. Scheana storms off to the JV cheerleader table to make posters with the other girls. There she rants about Dayna who she is absolutely not jealous of she just can’t think of anything other than Dayna.
Ariana and LVP talk about their depression. Ariana says she thinks about driving off a cliff sometimes when she was on the highway. Sadly, Ariana thought the new house cure her. It didn’t. So, Ariana is going to take a few shifts at SUR to force her out of the house.
The Fofty And Randall Blowup on Social Media Flares Up!
Across town, Brittany and Lala realize this is their first Pride not working. Stassi is salty that James is DJing at TomTom. Stassi is always salty. Oh hell, Lala is not speaking to James because he liked some memes about the fight between Fofty and Randall on social media. That was the funniest shit that has happened on the Internet in a long time! That is a ridiculous reason to be made at someone. THE WHOLE WORLD WAS LAUGHING!
Dayna was supposed to get her hair done with Raquel. Somehow Scheana managed to get Raquel to dump Dayna and take her just to fuck Scheana over. At SUR there is only one bartender in the bar, and one in the lounge. There needs to be at least six. Jax is going to only work until 1 pm.
Look At Me, I’m LVP
I can’t deal with LVP making pride all about her every year. But this episode knowing about the latest sexual harassment charges against her that includes a gay woman, it just irks me. Especially since that John guy said basically it was no big deal. I keep saying the gays are props for her attention, the dogs are props for her attention, it’s not about supporting social causes it’s about LVP. And let’s never forget how she treated Billie.
Dayna and Jax talk at TomTom SUR. In his confessional, Jax tells us that Dayna is attractive but not his type. He doesn’t like blonds. Then production gives us a retrospective of blondes who got Jaxed. Jax’s type is anyone with a willing hole somewhere. They bond over their hatred toward Scheana. It’s really hard to like Scheana. Meanwhile, Scheana is bonding Raquel. And by bonding I mean badmouthing Dayna, who she is definitely not jealous of. Scheana is lucky Raquel got the job at SUR so she will have someone to film with.
Look At Me, I’m James Kennedy!
At TomTom James pulls Lala to the side to apologize to her about laughing with the rest of us over the Fofty versus Randall social media war. Lala is so condescending. Lala calls James out for having a drink.
This Pride looks like so much fun! TomTom is packed and I love their jackets! James is having he time of his life until he discovered that Raquel wasn’t there, she was in the SUR car for the parade. James screams at her on the phone for not being there. She didn’t know when his set was. She heads straight to Tom Tom to appease James. How can the Toms be just wandering around not working at the bar on Pride?
Peter and Danica are looking for Raquel. She is supposed to be working. They are furious because so many employees didn’t show up. Back at Tom Tom James goes to suck up to LVP. All he wants is for LVP to acknowledge he is doing a good job. Katie and Ariana talk about how cute Raquel looks. LVP says, “She’s at SUR right?” James says she is there, at TomTom. LVP is peeved she knows Raquel is supposed to be working at SUR. James tries to backpedal. James lies to LVP about drinking. LVP did not give James the affirmations he so needed. You could tell he was hurt.
Carry Me! I’m LVP!
Raquel arrives at SUR and despite the “shortage” of employees, Peter takes her to the back alley to reprimand her. Wouldn’t it be smart to do that after PRIDE? Apparently, Raquel missed her entire shift. Peter acts like she missed PRIDE altogether when she offers to work all night. It’s Pride! The place will be mobbed until close! The is piss poor script writing. Scheana gets on the bar and tries to get the crowd to sing with her. No one does.
LVP gets a Sheriff patrolling the crowd to carry her to SUR. It’s ridiculous. The minute she gets inside she is dancing on her “broken foot.” The the same cop carries Scheana off the bar on her shoulders. This is just so wrong. Am I the only one irked by this? That cop was HOT! though.
Scheana Marie Is NOT Jealous of Dayna!
Then Scheana pulls Dayna into the alley. Scheana is huffing on an inhaler. She confronts Dayna for saying she was being mean to her to “people.” And by people she means LVP. Then there is a terribly bad edit and suddenly they are talking about the hairdresser situation with Raquel. Dayna asks her if she is 16 or 34. Scheana needs most of her fingers for the inhaler so she can’t figure out the answer to that question. Dayna says that Scheana seems very threatened by her. Scheana says that Dayna is stealing all her friends and now everyone is going to Dayna’s comedy event. Dayna is unmoved so Scheana starts crying and saying her birth control pills are making her hormonal. WTF? Dayna stands her ground and Scheana finally says, “I haven’t been fair to you I am very sorry.”She’s not sorry but at least she said the words.
Next week: LVP gives Raquel a stern talking to. Max tells Dayna he wants to be exclusive. Jax and Brittney get a lot of grief over the pastor who is marrying them. He’s extremely homophobic.
