Rumor has it that we may be seeing more of Stassi Schroeder than just on the new season of Vanderpump Rules! I’d been wondering since Pump Rules wrapped its successful Season 2 earlier this year and Stassi had reportedly moved to New York City with her new man—could this mean a spinoff for Stassi? Well, it looks like we may be in double luck! As far as everyone seems to know Stassi will, indeed, be appearing on Vanderpump Rules Season 3. She appears to be back in LA and her boyfriend, Patrick, may be moving to the West Coast, too. Stassi has been spotted all over LA, presumably filming the new season.
In other Pump Rules news, we’re expecting to see Scheana Marie’s July 27 midriff-baring nuptials featured on the new season. Reportedly, her wedding was attended by all her fellow cast members with the notable exception of (who else?)…Stassi. So, in the span of one reunion special Stassi somehow went from bridesmaid to banned from the wedding all together.
Also, it sounds like Kristen Doute, who we watched basically self-implode last season after sleeping with Jax Taylor (and lying about it–a lot), hasn’t really made much progress in getting her personal issues worked out. She’s been tweeting about turning 30 and treating herself to her first round of Botox (#fountainofyouth) to celebrate. OK, she does live in LaLa Land, but just a thought: perhaps if you’re still young enough to wear a barely-bum-covering frock while serving cocktails for a living at a trendy restaurant and your social life consists of sleeping with your friends’ exes/boyfriend’s best friends, then maybe you’re too young to start a Botox regimen. Here’s hoping Kristen can get some non-cosmetic help in dealing with her problems this season, too…
Anywhoo…back to the possible Stassi spinoff news! LALate is reporting that Lisa Vanderpump’s production company is working with Bravo to develop a reality show tentatively called “Vanderpump Rules Superfan”. The new show will supposedly be hosted by Stassi and she’ll be playing prankster host, a la Ashton Kutcher circa 2005. If we can believe the rumors, the concept of the show is that “Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder will work with you, going any length to prank your superfan girfriend, friend, or relative in a sneaky and outrageous way!” Hmm…I for one am not totally convinced that this sounds like a real, viable premise for a show. And, as per usual, Bravo has been mum on the subject so nothing is official just yet. But, who knows! You know we’ll be on the lookout for any more hints!
As far as a possible premiere date for Vanderpump Rules Season 3, no word yet. Season 2 premiered along with the premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in early November. If things are on track for a similar timeline this year I’d bet we’d have already heard about an air date from Bravo. It would be pretty unheard of for the network to premiere any Housewives installment with little over a month of advance notice. Perhaps things have been held up due to the Shahs of Sunset strike delay but, whatever the reason, I’m guessing we’ll be seeing Pump Rules, RHOBH and RHOA (also typically an early November premiere) later this year than in the past. We’ll keep you posted!!
Are you looking forward to Vanderpump Rules Season 3? Would you watch this Stassi Schroeder spinoff?
