It’s half two of the Vanderpump Rules reunion.  Lala continues to be making an attempt to grasp issues that don’t have anything to do along with her and Katie is simply mad…just about the entire time.  First it was Lala coming at her, then the Scheana/Schwartz make out will get introduced up, and at last Jo comes out to attempt to converse her fact.  That doesn’t go so nicely, as Schwartz tries to gaslight Jo into pondering they have been by no means a factor.  James jumps in at the very finish, proving that possibly he’s the primary man within the group.

Issues are going GREAT for Lala and Katie thus far.  Not… Lala is coming in sizzling, calling Katie out for performing in another way off digicam.  Lala reminds Katie that she had quite a bit to say about Ariana when the cameras have been down, however when Lala tried to carry it up whereas filming, Katie wouldn’t chunk.  Katie claims she selected to not discuss it as a result of she was “over it” and didn’t need to make Ariana really feel responsible.  And he or she was definitely not resentful in direction of Ariana, as Lala insinuates.

Schwartz factors out that Katie was in all probability scared to not be #TeamAriana, however Ariana backs Katie by calling her 100% genuine. Ariana states that Katie is legitimate in her emotions and Lala simply misses the Katie who would even be a fact teller, delivering information and having uncomfortable conversations. Lala felt like Katie was treating her just like the enemy, however believes they are going to be again to being good pals, even after this sensitive dialog.  When Andy factors out that Katie seems to be p*ssed, Lala retorts, “well, that’s standard….” And in addition a simple method to have Katie stay indignant with you, Lala.

As a result of Katie was not mad sufficient, Andy decides to modify matters and convey up the make out session between Scheana and Schwartz.  To be clear, this occurred YEARS in the past, throughout a time when Katie HATED Scheana coming into the group.  Scheana buried this secret as a result of the very last thing on the planet she wished was to harm Katie. Schwartz apologizes to Scheana for approaching to her and for being a “sloppy, drunken fool.”  If not for Scheana’s repressed reminiscence of the night coming to mild throughout glamping, this may have stayed quiet.

Scheana stands by the truth that each man within the group has hit on her.  James denies it.  Sandoval additionally denies it, nevertheless, Scheana’s bought a LOT of particulars… Talking of hook ups, Katie’s revenge bang with Max will get mentioned.  Schwartz claims to have manifested this so he may present the world he was an even bigger individual in this sort of state of affairs, however it’s killing him, since Max is his bff.  Katie performs coy when requested if she connected with Max a second time, so…she did?

The Lake Tahoe journey was NOT a “Sandoval redemption trip,” however quite a method to attempt to get the group collectively after the chaos of the previous 12 months.  Schwartz will get questioned for calling Ariana the queen of the group and Ariana believes that Schwartz is the ONLY one that thinks she has an ego.  Simply wait til she sees Lala go off about this on the finale episode…

Ariana understands the place Scheana was coming from this season as she struggled to be loyal to Ariana, however wished to let Sandoval again in her life. Scheana desperately tries to indicate Ariana how a lot she means to her.  Ariana’s boundaries are a sizzling matter and Andy factors out that Lala had boundaries in 2022 about speaking along with her ex, so why was everybody giving Ariana such a tough time?

Lala says that the large distinction is that there was a toddler concerned. Katie believes that Ariana continues to be allowed to have boundaries, however Lala doesn’t perceive how Ariana can sleep in the identical home as him, but declare boundaries, particularly after having a brand new boyfriend “10 days later.”  Ariana reminds Lala that she supported her boundaries and that Lala doesn’t have to grasp her boundaries, however quite respect them.

The fan photograph the place Scheana has her arm round Sandoval will get introduced up.  Ariana admits that she was barely uncomfortable, however not as uncomfortable as Scheana was when Ariana didn’t inform her she was going to be on Dancing with the Stars (Scheana’s DREAM place).  Ariana says she remained tight-lipped due to manufacturing and she or he was afraid that if she advised Scheana, she might have been over-heard. Andy makes a plug to have Scheana on DWTS and Scheana poo-poos it, as she has plans along with her band…however maaaaybe subsequent 12 months.

Ally enters able to learn Andy’s chart, and Jo enters able to be eaten alive by Katie. The entire Jo phase left me feeling uncomfortable, since Schwartz refuses to name what they’d a relationship, when it very clearly was one.  Schwartz and Jo met by Kristen Doute, however it’s unusual how they related…and the way Jo wound up crashing at Schwartz’s when she may have requested her FRIEND Kristen.

Schwartz states that it began platonically, however it advanced right into a sexual relationship and refers to Jo as “an escape.” Katie truly felt dangerous for Jo as a result of she noticed her state of affairs with Schwartz very in another way. Schwartz claims he by no means texted Jo that he cherished her, however he actually did say he cherished her as a result of he cared about her.  Schwartz believes that he was clear with Jo, however Katie believes that Schwartz was “displaying f*ck boy behavior.” Jo reaches for a tissue and nods as the ladies speak concerning the disconnect. Jo factors out that it’s unhappy to see there was a relationship and it’s much more unhappy that Schwartz refuses to make use of the phrase relationship when discussing their time collectively, choosing the phrase “magic” as a substitute.

Schwartz was scared to place labels on what they have been and Jo is damage as a result of she felt like Schwartz’s soiled secret, whereas he has hard-launched a brand new girlfriend now.  Nobody is certain what to make of Jo.  Ariana dislikes her as a result of she believes Jo knew about Rachel and Sandoval and Katie, nicely, Katie makes her opinion very clear. Katie claims she was so imply about Jo as a result of she didn’t belief her and claims she used “colorful descriptors” when speaking about Jo. Katie tells Jo it’s not about her, however Katie behaved that approach in direction of Jo due to all she was coping with.  The very last thing Katie wanted was Jo…however that feels like a Katie drawback.

In the case of James and Ally, they embrace the airport shade and embrace their function as dad and mom to some cats and Hippie.  Talking of Hippie, Rachel got here out to say that the canine’s dangerous conduct was a results of how James handled her as a pet, however James states that Hippie has remodeled since being house with him.  Ally throws shade and says that the group hasn’t actually impressed her to get married and have youngsters, regardless of James wanting it, like yesterday.

Lala has been sober for nearly 5 ½ years and she or he thanks Andy for acknowledging her sobriety.  James hasn’t had a drink since April and Ally shares that she didn’t like who James was when he was consuming.  Ally truly moved out of the home for 2 nights (and no she didn’t crash at Schwartz’s) and states that if James have been to start out consuming once more, she would go away.

In response to Andy, the true star of VPR this season is Ann, Sandoval/Ariana’s assistant (no, it isn’t Summer time Moon, a lot to Scheana’s chagrin).  Ann determined to work for Ariana as a result of she wished to work with and for different girls.  Sandoval felt like he bought kicked in his intestine when this occurred, however wastes no time throwing Ann below the bus when it got here to “attempted dog murder.”  Sandoval states that it may have been him OR Ann who left Ariana’s bed room door open, inflicting their canine to eat one thing and get very sick.

In Ariana’s eyes, there isn’t a doubt that the canine stays along with her on this break up.  In spite of everything, she bought the canine.  This causes Sandoval to roll his eyes, setting off James.  James factors out that Sandoval was effective when Rachel took Graham from him and wonders how Sandoval had no drawback with that then and now right here he’s making a mockery of the state of affairs.  Sandoval will get defensive, as he all the time does, and blurts out to James, “I’m keeping my mouth shut about the things I have heard” about him.  James tells Sandoval that he’s “galloping so far ahead of you I can’t even see you.”  Touché, James.
