Tom Schwartz and Raquel Leviss Proceed Their Alleged Romance on New ‘Vanderpump Guidelines’

After final week’s epic pool-party battle that ended with Katie Maloney desperately calling an Uber, the Vanderpump Guidelines gang lastly heads right down to Mexico this week to have a good time Scheana Shay and Brock Davies’ marriage ceremony.

In fact, on this totally loveless present, the 2’s precise nuptials are the least essential a part of this already dysfunctional journey.

Earlier than the marriage festivities start, although, there’s nonetheless some enterprise to handle in L.A., like one other Schwartz & Sandy’s menu tasting (yawn) and a “tea celebration” at Lisa Vanderpump’s home that’s truly a shock bridal bathe for Scheana. However first, we get one other scene of James Kennedy ranting about his ex-fiancée, Raquel Leviss.

As Raquel and Tom Sandoval’s scandalous affair—and, in line with stories following the current taping of the present’s solid reunion, even perhaps present relationship—continues to drive the information cycle, VPR followers each informal and devoted are tuning in to the present in big numbers, hoping for hints of gossip associated to the controversy. Wednesday night time’s newest episode supplied loads of drama with regards to the difficult relationship dynamics between the tangled webs of events concerned—together with not simply Leviss and Sandoval, however their respective exes together with James, Tom Schwartz, and Ariana Madix.

If it hasn’t already been confirmed, James is clearly not dealing with his ex-fianceé’s rise to main-character standing nicely. Throughout a chat along with his father, Andros, the DJ practically breaks the fourth wall, declaring that he “was right here first.” Andros echoes that Raquel is on “his [James’] turf.” (Gross.) We are able to assume James’ head will explode when Being Raquel Leviss inevitably airs on Bravo within the fall.

At Schwartz & Sandy’s, the Toms are nonetheless *drum roll please* not able to open! At first, it appeared like Greg, their enterprise associate, was purposely stalling to gather hire cash and probably audition for his personal Bar Rescue present. However on this scene, we see Schwartz give their supervisor Brett a drink menu that has neither cocktail names nor costs on it, and I’ve to marvel what these two are doing from 9 to five day-after-day.

On digicam, no less than, they’re stuffing their faces with attainable menu choices, and Katie surprisingly scores an invitation to this second spherical of tastings. (Greg stated the primary spherical was too dive-bar-y.) Katie and Schwartz have made up as a result of Katie’s obsessive about having an amicable divorce, although they couldn’t even have an amicable marriage. Everybody oohs and ahhs over crab beignets and lobster corn canine.

Ally Lewber, James’ girlfriend, manages to flee from James’ grip for a lunch date with Ariana, Scheana and Lala Kent. In fact, nobody actually spends time attending to know Ally as a result of Lala has to have the final phrase along with her battle with Raquel from final week. Sadly, all she will be able to do is slut-shame Raquel for sporting a bikini to a pool celebration. Scheana additionally talks about her marriage ceremony plans, which, as of this scene, don’t embrace the newly initiated Ally. Afterward, Ariana informs Scheana a few “tea celebration” Lisa’s internet hosting at Villa Rosa.

Then, we have now an emotional scene with Lala, that are all the time laborious to digest earnestly, however particularly seconds after she stated Raquel “regarded like a prostitute.” On high of that, she’s having a heart-to-heart with Brock, who she had beef with final season after (rightfully) revealing his sketchy previous to the group, together with a home violence cost. Lala apologizes for the way she dealt with the scenario, although it’s the one morally right factor she’s achieved up to now 4 seasons.

Then we head over to Villa Rosa for Scheana’s shock bridal bathe, which isn’t a lot of a shock as a result of Scheana spots her sister’s automobile earlier than she walks in. However it’s all the time nice to see Lisa anxiously host a bunch of broke millennials in her dwelling. The solid additionally greets Scheana along with her smash hit “Good As Gold.”

Total, the occasion is fairly tame. Nonetheless, James drinks one too many Pumptinis and gained’t cease professing his love for Ally in regarding methods, together with repeatedly saying that he desires her to have his “blue-eyed infants.” Lisa precisely tells him that he feels like a dictator. James additionally asks Lala, who’s been publicly cautious about his new relationship, if he ought to suggest to Ally in Mexico, which she’s deeply offended by. It’s turning into clearer with each James and Lala interplay this season that these two diabolic human beings are soulmates. They definitely have extra chemistry with one another than with each of their flames this season.

Talking of chemistry (or lack thereof), Raquel and Schwartz have a boring dialog on some garden chairs. And on the afterparty at Schwartz & Sandy’s, they randomly discover the lads’s lavatory. In mild of the Scandoval, many followers are speculating that these two manufactured their romance to distract from Raquel’s affair with Sandoval. And it’s laborious to not watch their robotic flirting with this idea in thoughts. I don’t put it above Schwartz to significantly pursue Raquel. However sober (or no less than not-as-drunk) Raquel appears less-than-horny round this man.

Earlier than everybody flies out to Mexico, James begs Scheana and Brock to let Ally attend the marriage ceremony, they usually oblige him. Many of the solid arrives on the Desires Natura Resort and Spa, together with Katie and different uninvited visitor Kristina Kelly. Later, Scheana mentions that she was offended when Kristina giggled with former solid member Stassi Schroeder when she in contrast her crop-top marriage ceremony costume to a “skanky woman’s quinceanera” 10 years in the past as a result of she’s half-Mexican. It’s stunning that Bravo would even resurface this clip, contemplating you would make a 10-minute supercut of all of the racially offensive feedback Stassi’s made on the present.

Anyway, Katie is shocked to find that Scheana moved her and Kristina to a distinct tower. And Brock makes everybody shout their marriage ceremony hashtag, #HoneyIDo. (Why do these exist??)

The primary occasion of what’s going to inevitably be 50 pre-wedding festivities is a dinner in an IKEA-looking restaurant. However earlier than the group sits down, James has already body-checked certainly one of Brock’s Australian mates for giving him “an annoying, drunk hug” in Lala’s phrases. To be truthful, Brock’s dwelling friends have confirmed to be irritating up to now, like when certainly one of them was being sensitive with Charli [last name] final season. If it’s the identical dude, I really feel no sympathy. Nonetheless, Ariana’s actually pissed about it. And she or he and James begin shouting and clapping at one another.

An humiliated Ally storms out. Raquel smirks as a result of she not must be embarrassed by James. And we finish with one other deeply pointless “To Be Continued…”
