If you’re not yet pumped up for Vanderpump Rules, you should be!! I’ve tweeted a list of Vanderpump Rules cast & their Twitter handles. In case you missed it, I’ll be providing it here & hopefully adding some information you may not know about the cast-mates yet. Without further ado, let’s get started!
As Lisa Vanderpump says, “This is where you take your mistress.” It’s located in West Hollywood & their Twitter bio defines it better than I possibly could, so here you go: “Sur Restaurant, featuring eclectic cuisine, brings a taste of the exotic to the trendy corner of Melrose and Robertson.”
I believe after tonight’s premiere our curiosities will be piqued & all of our questions answered…or will they?
Do I really need to introduce them & explain who they are? In my opinion, they are American Royalty. (Yes, I know they’re from England!) YOU keep the Kardashians, I’ll take the Vanderpump-Todds (and that includes Giggy!)
On a more serious note, in case you weren’t aware SUR isn’t their 1st rodeo. For the entire scoop on Lisa, err…Pinky (I just learned that’s what her closest friends call her- LOVE IT!) visit her website & this link will take you to her “about” page.
I have no idea if Pandora will actually be a “castmember” but I’m quite certain we’ll be seeing her. Pandora has made a name for herself in her own right with The Divine Addiction, an online magazine – think Martha Stewart for a younger crowd.
Now, for the actual cast and I’ll start with the main 6 characters:
I’ll begin with Miss Scheana Marie @scheanamarie
because my guess is the “Brandi/Scheana” talk will be how they’ll segway from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to Vanderpump Rules. I’m hoping EvolutionMedia doesn’t do what they have with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (Brandi “outing” Adrienne’s secrets) and Sin City Rules (the rift between Lana/Alicia) and then beat those dead horses until they’re deader. (I know, that’s probably not a word).
Look, Scheana Marie was 21 when she had an affair with serial cheater Eddie Cibrian & a wise person once said, “Once a serial cheater, always a serial cheater.” A-friggin-MEN! I hope she’s not the 1 they’re referring to as “poison” and a “man stealer” alllll season long!
What I really hope happens is that we get to know Scheana Marie for who she truly is. She’s a singer with a song on iTunes and also has a website scheanamarie.com . She’s an up and coming actress whose been in show business since 2007 & quite frankly, she is to-die-for gorgeous!
From what I’ve read of her on Twitter she holds her cards close to her vest and who could blame her? I find her to be the most mysterious of the ladies and am looking forward to getting to know her. She is involved with Mike Shay, he’s on the show as helping to produce her music.
Kristen Doute @kristendoute According to Bravo’s website Kristen’s been acting & modeling since childhood . Kristen says she plays guitar (I believe for the same band Tom’s in) & knows American Sign Language. She was also nominated for best actress in a drama at the ITV Festival. She’s been dating Tom Sandoval, also on the cast of VPR, for over 4 years, and has been employed at SUR longer than any other employee- 5 years. . Kristen grew up in the Mid-West, Bravo shows her as being from Dearborn, MI. Bravo also says she has a propensity to insert herself where she doesn’t belong, and I can totally see Kristen doing that ~ but without viewing the show yet, I can say, it may be the very thing that makes us love her. Or not. She tweets often & is quite fan-friendly, so if you want to follow someone that interacts, she’s a good one to follow…remember though, her ability to interact may change once her follower count explodes. She’s definitely one of my favorite follows on Twitter.
Stassi Schroeder @stassischroeder Princessa Stassi (as she calls herself) is a Southern Belle that
hails from NOLA. She began theater classes at 11 years old & studied for 3 years at NOCCA (drama division), she completed her education at Loyola Marymount University with a Bachelor’s Degree in English Writing. (source: IMDb) She was in The Amazing Race & came in 7th according to Bravo’s site. She is BFFs with Pandora and a writer for The Divine Addiction, She is NO longer the girlfriend of one Jax Taylor. I hope along with the ouster of Jax is also the end of her being so judgmental of Scheana Marie; quite frankly, it’s childish & not very “princessa-like”. Just sayin’. I might be wrong but I believe she’s dating Frank Herlihy, or they may just be BFFs.
Katie Maloney @MusicKillsKate
Save the best for last! I’m not saying Katie’s gonna be the best on the show, she’s just one of my
show favorites on Twitter & is another fan friendly cast member. She’s entertaining & her personality comes across loud & clear; I think she’s adorable. Katie comes from Park City, Utah; her boyfriend is Tom Schwartz, also on the show. If you go to SUR pay attention to the music because that’s what she’s in charge of! Knowing how Lisa Vanderpump has said the ambiance of a restaurant is so important to her, Katie must be damn good at her job or she wouldn’t be there! She’s been in the “biz” since ’08 & this may shock you (it did me) but she helped produce 2 movies, has also worked in the costume dept., music dept., misc. dept.,, and has acted in 5 movies. Aaaaand she’s only 26…I think it’s safe to say, ”This girl is going places!!!” Oh, there are 2 things on Bravo I cannot
not tell you: 1) Katie can fit a quarter inside her belly button. 2) She was born with an extra bone in her neck. TaDa! See why I saved her for last??
Now, for the guys. This part is easy as just 2 men are in the 6 main castmates. That would be Tom Sandoval and Jax Taylor. However, there are a few other guys that are on the show. That said, I’ll continue…
Tom Sandoval @TomSandoval1
is an actor/model from St. Louis, MO. Thank to Bravo’s site we learn he was discovered by David DeCoteau and has actually been in a number of films, the most popular being Puppet Master: Axis
of Evil. He’s 5’11 which is good because Kristen Doute, his girlfriend of over 4 years, is 5’9. AND….wait for it…he is the biggest newbie to Twitter of all the Vanderpump Rules Cast. With just 83 tweets, he’s truly a Twitter
.sheesh the guy went from newborn to infant in front of my very eyes! He’s at 83 y’all! (I’m a Cali Native, so the y’all stuff is just cuz) Hey, at least he’s trying & I give him huge credit for that!
While at SUR he’s a bartender, but he also has another hobby you may find interesting – he’s a guitarist for “Pierce the Arrow
” You can follow them on Twitter if you’d like @PierceTheArrow.
1 thing I will say if Tom keeps tweeting at the rate he is tonight, his band will soon be playin’ “Tweehab” (thank you very much for that one, Brandi)
Jax Taylor @mrjaxtaylor
is a jack of all trades, no pun intended. He’s a bartender at SUR, he also keeps very busy with modeling & acting jobs. While I have yet to watch him on the show, from his modeling pictures it seems as though he takes his work very seriously. Bravo lists his 2 interesting facts as: 1) He’s on the cover of “Assassins Creed” video game box 2) Has been in many national magazines. He is no longer dating Stassi Schroeder, but does have a girlfriend that he’s talked to on Twitter. I’ve tried searching him on IMDb & unfortunately, am unable to come up with anything under his exact spelling of his name…perhaps he’s done film work under a different spelling? I don’t know. Jax, if you read this & would like a more complete bio, please leave a link to it in comments.
Okay, I’ve got the 6 Vanderpump Rules stars completed, now for the rest of the crew:
Jeremy Davison @rufi0o
is a 24-year-old from New Jersey, he’s lived in California a little over a year & so far, it seems as though he’s adapting to the lifestyle quite well. Jeremy admits he got lucky when he happened to apply at SUR and while he’s not 1 of the 6 stars he is very humble & grateful for whatever exposure he does get. His girlfriend is Jen Bush, but she doesn’t have a Twitter account. His current position at SUR is barback, training to be a bartender. He is by far the most fan-friendly cast-member on Twitter & interacts on a regular basis. Having spent a lot of time talking with Jeremy, I can honestly say, the sincerity you sense from him is genuine. If you want to know more about Jeremy I recommend reading his interview here
Frank Herlihy @FrankHerlihy11
is from New York & played football throughout high school & partly through college. I believe he & Stassi Schroeder are dating, but again, I may be wrong. As for what his position is at SUR or what brought him to California, I can’t answer. Hopefully we’ll find our answers as the season goes along. One thing I will say (because I feel this is that
important), I believe (unknowingly), Frank has committed a Twitter Faux Pas – that is, he’s following people and when they follow him back, he unfollows. I truly believe Frank is doing this in ignorance, BUT this is actually a Twitter Rule no-no because some people with bad intentions do this (why? I don’t know), but there is no doubt in my mind Frank is not doing it for malicious reasons. My best guess is Frank wanted exposure & to show people he’s on Vanderpump Rules. In case Frank doesn’t read this, I hope someone will please pass the word on to him – I know of a number of fans he’s done this to & will say that as a fan, it’s a HUGE turnoff. I did mention it to him myself on Twitter, but got no reply.
Tom Schwartz @twschwa
is also on the show, in what capacity is uncertain. On the upside though, he is dating Katie Maloney!
Michael Shay @MikeShayMusic
I don’t know Mike’s position at SUR either, but I do know he has a HUGE crush on Scheana Marie!! How do I know that? Cuz he said so himself, just a few minutes ago.
I wish I could provide more information about Jax, Tom, Mike & Frank – but unfortunately, this is all the information available to me right now.
