When the trailer for Vanderpump Rules Season 8 was released, you may have noticed a few unfamiliar faces in the preview footage and cold open of the first episode. New SUR staffers Brett Caprioni, Charli Burnett, Danica Dow, Dayna Kathan, and Max Boyens were all featured, as well as some people who we definitely know but hadn't yet made an appearance in the opening credits: Stassi Schroeder's fiancé, Beau Clark, and James Kennedy's longtime girlfriend, Raquel Leviss. So, things are definitely changing at SUR and from the look of the trailer, it's going to be an incredible season.
With all these changes afoot, how do the Vanderpump Rules cast members who have been there from the beginning feel? Well, at least one of them is definitely psyched: Kristen Doute, a regular since Season 1, responded to a tweet saying, "I'm so glad there are new faces!!!" with this response: "Me tooooo!"
Jax Taylor also commented on the new additions to the cast. "Wow, this is a good trailer, I gotta say... you can definitely tell our original cast has grown. 8 years and counting!!" he tweeted after the new season of Vanderpump Rules was announced. "Love my OG family."
Check out the preview above to see how the newbies shake up the status quo, and make sure to tune in when Vanderpump Rules Season 8 premieres Tuesday, January 7 at 9/8c. And to see where Kristen left off with some of the other SUR OGs, check out this clip from the Season 7 reunion, below.
