Lala Kent has done all Vanderpump Rules fans a huge favor by getting a bunch of the ladies from the show, past and present together again. While making an appearance for her “Give Them Lala Live” tour at Irvine Improv on April 28th, Lala invited recently separated Katie Maloney onstage along with former cast member Brittany Cartwright. Even disgraced original cast members Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder joined in to spill some tea.
Heavy.com described what went down, based off a thread on Reddit. We have not viewed the footage, so the quotes have not been verified by us. But according to the article linked, the vent included interactive games with fans, and a Q & A with the Vanderpump Rules cast members.
So what did the ladies share while onstage? Katie confirmed that she and Ariana Madix are still on track to open that sandwich shop. Katie’s personal life is heating up as well. Host Lala teased that her co-star has been getting all the action on the dating scene.
There was a notable shift within the group when an audience member asked if Lisa Vanderpump is “cool” in person. Kristen broke the silence to say she respected the restauranteur as a businesswoman. Brittany then shared that she has not spoken to Lisa since she left the show.
Fans reacted to the supposed icing-out of Brittany by the Sur owner. One fan wrote, “Interesting tidbit about Lisa not talking to Brittany anymore. Not surprising though.” Another opined, “Not surprised that LVP doesn’t talk to Bratney. She never seemed to like her.” The general consensus was a lack of surprise at the news. A third commenter added, “Interesting that they had next to nothing to say about Lisa. I would have thought the ones still on the show would have something vaguely positive to say.”
Brittany’s husband Jax Taylor previously revealed that he also had not heard from Lisa since the couple left the show at the end of 2020. In March 2021, Jax went on Instagram Live to drop the bombshell, after all he was a staple on the show and had a friendship with Lisa.
“I don’t talk to Lisa now, I haven’t spoken to her,” Jax said during the Instagram Live, “She’s in her own world, and I don’t really .. she’s another one that, eh, I could care less about. She’s in her own world. Nothing mean against her. I just don’t really care either way.”
In June 2021, Brittany shared a similar sentiment during an appearance on the “Girls Night With Alexis Waters” podcast. “I haven’t actually talked to her as much as I thought we would,” she explained, “I love Lisa. I’ve looked up to her so much, always have. I’ve always been one of her number one fans. I thought maybe we would keep in touch just a little bit more.”
Sadly, due to this disconnect, Lisa has not met Jax and Brittany’s son Cruz Michael Cauchi. Though Brittany made it clear that her former boss sent gifts at the time of her son’s birth in April 2021. “She did send Cruz a bunch of beautiful presents,” Brittany explained, “I don’t know, it’s weird because especially for Jax, they were so close for so long. It’s kind of weird not talking to her as much as we used to. But she definitely congratulated us and she sent us a present and everything. She hasn’t met Cruz or anything like that yet but hopefully, she will.”
After Brittany’s recent appearance at Lala’s event, it’s clear that meeting hasn’t happened yet.
For her part, Lisa has been brusque on the topic of her former costars. Brittany and Jax presented their exit as their choice, yet Lisa has hinted that the couple was fired. When asked to give her reaction to their departure in a previous interview, Lisa answered, “Was I surprised what they decided? Well, if you put it like that, yeah. I would have been really surprised.”
