This Arduous Season of Vanderpump Rules

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

By Lisa Vanderpump

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. . .

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

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.
