Who needs Jax and Stassi?

on Mar 18, 2013 - The Dish

When they’re not slinging indulgent cocktails, the Vanderpump Rules cast is actively pursuing their dreams in the entertainment business. Outside the confines of SUR, each audition could be the big break that leaves SUR in their rear-view mirror.  

Laura-Leigh personified this notion when she basically used her inevitable break as a threat against Jax. “Guess what? I’m not leaving. You’re stuck with me. You’re going to have to deal with me every f---ing day until I book a job and I’m out of here,” she bellowed with dramatic confidence only an actress could muster. 

However, in one of the season finale’s many #Vandershocked twists, Laura-Leigh confided in Lisa that she’s leaving SUR because she booked a film with Jennifer Aniston. Wait…what?! 

Aside from her awkward, lingering hug that Lisa graciously endured, Laura-Leigh high-tailed it out of SUR faster than a Teresa Guidice-table flip. 

We decided to do a little digging for #PumpRules fans left baffled by this turn of events. According to IMDB, Laura-Leigh is billed with a role in We're the Millers, a comedy about a veteran pot dealer who creates a fake family as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico. The Warner Bros. vehicle, which also stars Jason Sudeikis and Emma Roberts, is scheduled for release on August 9, 2013. 

Juilliard-trained Laura-Leigh has also appeared on Gossip Girl, Law & Order, and most recently in Lifetime’s The Client List starring Jennifer Love Hewitt. In a recent stop by the WWHL Clubhouse, Hewitt confessed to Andy that she actually does watch Vanerpump Rules. But, given that she and Laura-Leigh work together, Hewitt has tried to forget about the antics she’s seen and instead tries to keep their convos surface level. “I have to admit, I’ve been looking in the bathrooms now on set going, ‘Is she in there?’ ” Hewitt joked.
