Proving that West Hollywood is just a stone’s throw away from Beverly Hills, the new season of Vanderpump Rules looks like its own “enigma, wrapped in a riddle, and cash.”
The new trailer for season 5 of the reality series debuted this week, teasing the upcoming and long-awaited marriage between Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney. Naturally, there’s plenty of drama pumped into the mix. Flashes of the big wedding day play throughout, with boss Lisa Vanderpump officiating, reminding the couple of their long-term commitment after saying “I do.” Despite their friends’ unending support and a lavish honeymoon on the horizon, it seems trouble has found its way to them before paradise.
Still far from marriage but trudging through the murky relationship waters, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright seem to be losing grip on a happy future. “Why don’t you tell your mother what I’ve done for you since you’ve been here,” Jax says to a shocked Brittany. “Sitting on the couch for a year while I take care of you.”
Despite the myriad of tear-filled scenes (stop crying, Toms!), there is some joy for the SURvers. The ever-present thorn in Vanderpump’s side, Stassi Schroeder, has taken her witty humor to the podcasting world; James Kennedy still believes he will be a famous DJ; and all the repaired friendships seem to be intact. Scheana Shay does run away from her table of friends after being called “fake”, marking some possible trouble, but it’s nothing she hasn’t heard before.
Vanderpump Rules returns for season 5 at 9 p.m. ET on Nov. 7 on Bravo.
