From explosive housewarming parties to a nasty fight at SUR and one groovy birthday party, Vanderpump Rules delivered yet another week of drama, excitement, and gossip. The producers of the show weren't afraid to spill even more of the cast and crew's secrets in the enhanced episode Vanderpump Rules: Pumped Up, and you won't believe what they have to say. Think you can guess which SURver could be the president of the United States and which one is in the Hooters Hall of Fame? Keep scrolling to find out.
1. You'll probably never see the cast driving around L.A.
While the crew spends a lot of time traveling around West Hollywood (and now Marina Del Rey), Vanderpump Rules producers say you probably won't see them out and about (sorry, die-hard fans!). Many of the cast members tinted the windows of their cars, making it harder for them to be spotted.
2. The Witches of WeHo are the biggest boozy brunch fans
Clearly, Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Katie Maloney-Schwartz know how to have a good time. They also love a good boozy brunch (because, let's be real, who doesn't?). The producers shared that when the Witches of WeHo aren't at SUR or Pump, their favorite spots to brunch at include The Belmont and The Abbey.
3. One specific TV show theme song makes Schwartz cry
Of the two Toms, Sandoval is much more likely to burst out in tears than Schwartz is. (He's said that one of his most embarrassing moments from the show was his sob session with Kristen.) But that doesn't mean Schwartz is totally immune to tears. It turns out, there is one TV show — specifically, one TV show theme song — that always gets him emotional: Fuller House.
4. Producers say of all the SURvers, Jax would be the best president
Of every single cast member, you might think Jax Taylor would be the least likely to be president of the United States... but the producers aren't so skeptical. "If our current commander in chief is now the paradigm of a politician, then Jax will make a great president one day."
5. No one knew about the portrait of the Toms kissing in Tom Tom
Lisa Vanderpump loves to surprise her staff, whether she's picking up the bill for their elaborate parties or always having a say about the latest drama between them. But one of her best surprises to date was the massive portrait of Sandoval and Schwartz kissing that's hanging in Tom Tom. Producers say that this photo is from a game of spin the bottle when the crew went to New Orleans to celebrate Katie and Tom's joint bachelor/bachelorette party. No one, not even the production team, knew that LVP was planning on using this photo!
6. The producers have a group chat to share breaking news
The Vanderpump Rules production team loves drama as much as the SURvers themselves. The team has a group chat among them to share "breaking news" with each other as it plays out in real life. And since no one, not even the production team, knew about the past relations between Lala Kent and Ariana Madix, it didn't take long for the news to spread like wildfire.
7. Stassi hides her hair extensions all over Beau's apartment
Stassi's hair was long and voluminous at Jax and Tom's joint birthday party, and it's partly thanks to her collection of extensions. But with a large collection comes the need to store them somewhere. Unluckily for Beau, Stassi's hair ends up all over his house...even his freezer!
8. While Tom and Ariana's fights can be nasty, they never last longer than a day
Producers agree that Tom and Ariana have one of the strongest relationships on the show, but that doesn't mean they don't fight. The team said that their fights sometimes tend to be the worst out of everyone... although Sandoval has said that the longest Ariana has ever been mad at him was "a half a day to a day, at most." To put it into context, their spat at the bar after Tom gossiped about Ariana and Lala only lasted about 10 minutes.
9. Brittany is in the Hooters Hall of Fame
Before Brittany Cartwright was a SURver, she was a Hooters girl — a gig that has now landed her in the Hooters Hall of Fame! She also has a Lifetime VIP Membership card that gets her free food for life. Her favorite order? Breaded hot wings (all flappers, no drumsticks) and "lots and lots of ranch."
