Vanderpump Rules Season 10: What We Know So Far
As fans eagerly anticipate the return of Vanderpump Rules, the cast and producers have been teasing what’s to come in Season 10. From new additions to the cast to the aftermath of the Season 9 finale, here’s everything we know so far about the upcoming season.
New Additions to the Cast
One of the most exciting developments for Season 10 is the addition of new cast members. Earlier this year, it was announced that two new servers had been hired at SUR – bartender Leigha Wigginton and server Charli Burnett. Burnett is already familiar to fans, having appeared in Season 8 as Scheana’s friend and as a recurring cast member in Season 9.
In addition to the new hires at SUR, there are also rumors of a potential new cast member joining the group. In September, former Vanderpump Rules star Faith Stowers teased on Instagram that she had something “in the works” with the show. Stowers appeared in Seasons 4 and 6 of Vanderpump Rules before moving on to MTV’s The Challenge.
The Fallout from the Season 9 Finale
The Season 9 finale of Vanderpump Rules ended with a bang, as the group gathered for James Kennedy and Raquel Leviss’ engagement party. However, tensions were high as Tom Sandoval confronted Jax Taylor over his ongoing feud with Tom Schwartz. The argument quickly escalated, with Sandoval and Taylor hurling insults at each other and ultimately ending their friendship.
As fans eagerly anticipate the fallout from the Season 9 finale, it’s unclear whether Sandoval and Taylor will be able to repair their friendship. In an interview with Us Weekly, Sandoval expressed his doubts about reconciling, saying that he wasn’t “going to force a friendship.”
Of course, there’s bound to be plenty of drama in Season 10 when it comes to the group’s romantic relationships. While some cast members have settled into long-term relationships – like James and Raquel and Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney-Schwartz – others are navigating new romances.
Perhaps the most significant of these new relationships is the one between Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix. Sandoval and Madix have been together for years, but Season 9 saw them discuss the possibility of getting married and having children. It remains to be seen whether this will be a major plot point in Season 10.
Meanwhile, fans can expect to see plenty of drama from Scheana Shay’s love life. Scheana has been open about her desire to find the perfect man and get married, but her track record in relationships has been less than stellar. In Season 9, she briefly dated Brock Davies, but the two eventually broke up after Scheana accused him of cheating.
The Return of Lala Kent
One of the biggest surprises of Season 9 was Lala Kent’s decision to take a step back from the show. Kent announced in December 2020 that she would be taking a break from Vanderpump Rules to focus on her mental health and her family.
Kent’s absence was definitely felt in Season 9, but fans can breathe a sigh of relief – she’s confirmed that she’ll be back for Season 10. In an interview with E! News, Kent said that she was “ready to come back and show my life and be as transparent as possible.”
While Kent’s role in Season 10 remains to be seen, fans can expect plenty of drama from the outspoken SURver. Kent has never been one to hold back her opinions, and her return is sure to shake things up.
The Future of the Show
Despite some bumps in the road in recent years – including the departures of cast members Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute – Vanderpump Rules remains a popular reality TV staple. However, rumors have been swirling that the show could be headed for a major shakeup.
Earlier this year, Bravo announced that it was taking a “pause” on Vanderpump Rules and several other reality shows while it reevaluated its programming. While Vanderpump Rules has yet to receive an official Season 10 renewal, the fact that the show is in production suggests that it will likely return.
That said, it’s possible that Vanderpump Rules could look different in the future. In an interview with E! News, Scheana hinted that some changes could be in store. “I think we’re going to see a brand new show,” she said. “It’s going to be different, but it’s going to be great.”
So far, Vanderpump Rules Season 10 looks to be shaping up to be an exciting one. With new cast members, ongoing feuds and romances, and the return of Lala Kent, fans of the show are sure to be in for a treat. We’ll have to wait and see what else is in store when the season premieres next year.
