DRAMA IS ON THE MENU!
Rumors are flying — and drinks are thrown! — on the scandalous season five premiere of Vanderpump Rules. We check in with Jax Taylor, who’s got mixed feelings about his live-in girlfriend, Brittany Cartwright, joining him at SUR restaurant — and sure enough, things quickly get awkward when Jax himself spreads a story among the staff that he caught Brittany in the couple’s bedroom getting frisky with Kristen Doute! Meanwhile, James Kennedy (reeling from his parents’ split) provokes a public fight (complete with a tossed cranberry cocktail) after he mockingly insults Katie Maloney’s weight by asking when she’s expecting. This leads boss Lisa Vanderpump to scold him by saying, “James, you’re being a little bitch —and there’s only so many times I can defend you!” Fair enough, but when Lisa later tells the camera that James’ bratty behavior is “not conducive to a harmonious atmosphere at work,” we could only laugh. Because for better or for worse, it’s certainly conducive to a wildly entertaining guilty pleasure of a reality show!
