The network has released a sneak peek at the reunion, which shows some intense fights between both the old cast members and the new cast members.
Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark will confront Tom Sandoval over his beahviour at Stassi’s book signing, Kristen Doute will take on Stassi and Katie, James Kennedy opens up about apologizing to Lala Kent’s finance Randall Emmett, Scheana Shay will defend herself against Brett Caprioni, and Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright will get into it with Andy and anyone else who takes the bartender to task. (And that’s only the half of it.)
In short, all three parts sound like doozies.
Vanderpump Rules season 8 has been draped in controversy both onscreen and offscreen, however, so the drama is nothing new.
In addition to what played out this season, Lisa Vanderpump and the network have been forced to respond to allegations that some cast members had posted racist statements on social media in prior years, leading to some fans asking for them to be removed from the show or for the show to be cancelled.

After weeks of controversy, it was clear that the network wasn’t going to address any concerns past Lisa’s statement and ratings actually increased in later weeks.
Then, a few cast members stuck their feet in their mouths by talking about the coronavirus pandemic in a not-so-appropriate light. Both Jax and Lala made controversial statements about the virus and since had to make public apologies after realizing that they had offended a large portion of their followers.
And just last week, an editor on the show was fired after she slammed Scheana on a podcast and revealed that her job was almost entirely just to find embarrassing moments of Scheana to include in the episodes.
Love them or hate them, this group certainly brings the drama and Bravo wouldn’t be the same without our Pump Rules crew. After watching the last few moments of the season finale, it seemed like production was ready to take the show in new directions so it will be even more interesting to catch up with the cast now.
Vanderpump Rules airs Tuesdays on Bravo and Slice.
