Cocktails on cocktails on cocktails: check. All the SURvers partying: double check. A special performance by DJ James Kennedy: you bet. That was just the beginning for the Vanderpump Rules After-Party x House Of Yes, which was attended by Vanderpump Rules' Brittany Cartwright, Kristen Doute, James Kennedy, Lala Kent, Ariana Madix, Katie Maloney-Schwartz, Tom Sandoval (not in drag), Stassi Schroeder, Tom Schwartz, Scheana Shay, and Jax Taylor during BravoCon 2019 inside Hammerstein Ballroom.
As someone who previously attended the VanderCrawl, I was excited to follow-up that experience with this over-the-top bash, which did not disappoint.
The party's vibe was very pastel-hued with touches of Studio 54 disco debauchery meets glam garden party that was amplified by drag performers ruling the dance floor. And then there he was: the White Kanye himself.
“Yo, who’s having a good time? Make some noise! You're at the official after-party, BravoCon,” he told the room.
BTW, the first song he played was the Vanderpump Rules theme song, which really set the tone. The night included a pump-ing playlist from James, and, as someone who hasn't seen him DJ before, he certainly knows how to get the room hyped with his ultra-high energy DJ style. He even grabbed the mic and performed tracks, including "Topman," his Lala collab, "Feeling You," and his duet with Ariana, "Party," which she happily sang along to in VIP.
Along with never letting anyone forget "it's not about the pasta," he also reminded everyone, “It’s the white Kanye in the building,” then played a remix of Kanye West's "All of the Lights."
The rest of the crew partied up in the VIP section including Raquel Leviss, Beau Clark, Randall Emmett, and Scheana's new boyfriend, the extremely hunky Jason Momoa-like Brock Davies (who she sneaked in some makeout sessions with, and who could blame her). Meanwhile other pals like Heather McDonald, Jerry O'Connell (sadly not in cosplay), and some of the Summer House crew, including Lindsay Hubbard and Paige DeSorbo, also partied the night away.
However, let's all admit it, the highlight of the night was when Queen Lisa Vanderpump appeared on the stage and told everyone to put down their phones, grab a drink, and party.
And everyone obliged her royal decree.
