This Arduous Season of Vanderpump Rules

Lisa reflects on this season's drama and the drama you didn't see behind-the-scenes.

As the curtain drops on the final act I feel a sense of sadness as we close the door on this arduous season of Vanderpump Rules. . .

It has been my first experience being involved behind-the-scenes and have been so proud of the beauty of this production. The titles and the visuals of the restaurant are a complete reflection of the sexy vibe that I tried hard to create. Understand this, SUR has run beautifully as a restaurant for many years. I have just shown you a fraction of the staff and their convoluted lives! It has an abundance of young volatile characters! But on the floor you would be none the wiser!

This chapter closes with the ultimate betrayal. The man that they all invested in and believed over their good friend, the man who spun his story to suit himself comes to the conclusion that an honest admission was the only way out.

The whole season was dominated by this fragmented story line that caused a splintering of this incestuous group. The twists and turns this journey took us on was completely exhausting.

Many of you have question why Stassi remains in my employ. I understand your opinion is based purely on what you see. . .I see a lot more. I see a young woman who has great potential and needs guidance, who plays with emotions and will hopefully learn from her mistakes. . .a young woman who was angry and indignant but now whose feelings have been validated.

Laura-Leigh claimed her victory as she quickly departed for stardom after being manipulated by Jax. Then a pregnancy was announced, surprisingly by a couple that were present but not in the forefront, which might be shown in the lost footage. We are only a few months away from our first SUR baby! Some of the others lives are moving so rapidly I could present another half a dozen episodes to you as we speak!

Thank you for watching. It has been a unique experience and I trust this story is not complete. . .

Until next time, come and have a cocktail in the bar or a yummy dinner at the restaurant. Maybe you will catch me there.

Love always Lisa.

Our Producer Was There for the Final SUR Send-Off

You won't believe what Shay had the nerve to do at the after party. 

I can’t believe it’s the season finale. What a wild ride we’ve taken this season!

This ‘50s themed photo shoot was just another amazing idea from Lisa. The shoot took place at the historic Pink Motel in the hot, hot valley just north of LA proper. It was over 100 degrees out there, and some of the cast almost passed out! Jax was a uncomfortable in that big leather jacket, and it didn’t help that he was also a little hungover. See him give us a recap of the shoot.

There was a pool on-site, but unfortunately it was empty! Our ever-resourceful cast took full advantage, however, by busting out their skateboards. James and Jeremy can totally rip. Check them out shredding the pool, and Jax trying to get the perfect kick flip.

The cast looked like they just wandered off the Grease movie set. Ariana and Katie really got into character. See them here trying to hitch hike away. They didn’t get offered any rides, but they did manage to get beeped at by a number of passing cars!

Also, check out Ariana doing her best Grease impression, and Katie giving us her best ‘50s style dance moves.

Peter got into all the fun as well. He brought his very own flip knife! OK, it was really a comb. See him showing me his skills.

Lisa directed the shoot most of the day but did jump into the group picture at the end. The final photos would make a great SUR staff calendar! See the professional photos from the day.

Moving on to the final SUR party of the season. Don’t feel bad, it’s OK to shed a tear. Stassi almost, almost saw Jax. Will they finally face off at the reunion next week? No spoilers here! But back to the party--let’s just say that the drinks were flowing and everyone was (for the most part) having fun. Peter recaps the night for us.

Shay also got very daring. SO daring that he wanted to check something off his bucket list. This was to grab Lisa’s butt! Yes, oh yes, I filmed it. Had to. Sorry Lisa, but it was all in good fun.

Even after all the drama, there was a happy ending for Ariana and Tom. The couple that stays together…lives together! Tom gives a quick recap and tells us about his new roommate.

But as always, the real star of the night was the sex monster himself, Giggy. During a break in filming, Ken, Lisa, and Giggy came into our crew area to have some pizza. Did you know pizza is Giggy’s favorite food? Well its true! Check out the Pizza Puppy.

And that’s it! Its been so fun sharing all this behind-the-scenes gold. I will miss you all! But don’t worry--I will still be on Twitter tweeting all about the reunion. #Foyecrew @efoye OUT!
