Season 5 of Vanderpump Rules came to an end last week with the long-awaited wedding of Katie and Tom, but the excitement is FAR from over — this is Lisa Vanderpump’s world we’re talking about, after all — because it’s reunion time.
An exclusive clip from “Reunion – Part 1” offers a peek into the D-R-A-M-A ahead, with the recent bride and former SUR hostess Lala, who left the restaurant and show this season, going at it when Mr. Bravo himself, host Andy Cohen, asks Katie about the origin of their feud.
Katie says she felt she didn’t start it and that she last saw Lala at her engagement party, where she behaved like a “drunken a–hole.” After that, things really escalated. “I didn’t see her or talk to her, but she was talking a lot about me, my weight, my relationship, wanting to f— my fiancé, his d— size, regretting that she didn’t take his top off more, Katie is a blob, I think ‘no-sex Teletubby,’ whatever you called me,” Katie details.
So, that’s brutal (Teletubby, really?), but Katie’s no angel either. “Before you even knew me you were calling me a whore to all these people, showing them my profile picture,” Lala jumps in, accompanied by a flashback of Katie showing off that scandalous photo and judging her little heart out. “So, guess what. You said things about me before you even knew me. You’re a mean girl. You’re mean.” Andy also asks about some of the other bad things Lala said, like the time Lala compared Stassi’s clothes to that of a grandma.
Girl, you know Stassi had some feels about that. “She went on a podcast saying that all of us were old has-beens, we’re boring, and that you’re the star of the show and the reason why season 4 was so successful and we better watch out,” Stassi says, to which Scheana responds that Stassi was doing that back in season 2. “I’ve also had to answer for it, so now it’s her turn to answer for it.”
That’s just the tip of the iceberg. The first in a three-part reunion, which begins Monday at 8 p.m. E.T. on Bravo, will also dive into Kristen and Brittany’s rumored hookup and James’ rumored cheating, Katie’s criticism of Schwartz’s manhood, and Lisa’s reflections on celebrating Gay Pride following the Orlando shooting. Plus, there’s more on Lala’s surprise return, including an unexpected apology from an unlikely person, and much more.
Grab some popcorn — and, let’s be real, wine — because this looks like it’s going to be a wild ride. In the meantime, feast your eyes on the clip above.
