This season of Vanderpump Rules has been the best to date, gaining the most exposure and creating quite the buzz in the media. Andy Cohen and Lisa Vanderpump recently gathered at SUR with the cast to film to season 5 reunion, and according to Jax and Andy, things got VERY heated!
In a recent interview with E! News Jax dished about the “intense” reunion, and revealed that it started right away with the seating assignments!
“It was really intense,” Jax confirmed. “It’s going to be very surprising because I’m sitting next to James [Kennedy], they plotted me right next to James. People are going to be surprised.”
Continuing, “There’s a lot of surprise guests. There’s a lot of people that pop in, pop out.” (Hinting about Lala Kent’s appearance, which we told you about weeks ago!)
Jax has had several tough reunions over the years, yet shockingly he called this one, “a lot of fun.” He continued, “It was good for me this year though, I didn’t get a lot of heat. I stayed back a little bit, I didn’t take that much.”
He also pointed out that Katie Maloney Schwartz was in the hot seat this year, and she took the most heat out of any of the cast, especially when it came to her marriage to Tom Schwartz.
“Katie gets beat up pretty bad,” Jax said. Adding, “I mean, she’s been beat up all season. She’s taking it hard this season, too. She’s kind of literally taking it really, really hard, with phone calls to everybody. She was kind of wanting to just go crawl in a hole. She took it really bad, so the reunion was no exception. She took a lot of heat.”
I’m not surprised to hear that Katie had a lot of conflict at the reunion, however I think some of the other cast deserved to be in the hot seat as well! Scheana and Lala should have had A LOT of explaining to do; their behavior turned me off all season! Ariana and her bad attitude also should have been addressed, but Andy seems to play into her condescending ways and chill demeanor.
I figured that Scheana and Mike would have had the roughest time at the season 5 reunion, since it was their first time face to face since they split. This leads me to believe that Andy went easy on them, given the sensitive nature of the topic.
We’ll have to wait and see how things go down before we judge for ourselves, but hopefully Andy and the SUR crew doesn’t disappoint; the AATRH team can’t wait for the season 5 reunion to air in just a few weeks!
