As reported by Page Six, Andy had teased the episode as “shocking” after Scandoval got here to gentle. Simply two weeks in the past, information dropped that Tom Sandoval was cheating on Ariana Madix with castmate Raquel Leviss. The newest episode of Pump Rules closely featured Raquel and her interactions with Lala Kent, Katie Maloney, and Kristina Kelly whereas on a women’ journey.
And issues undoubtedly bought bizarre. After Raquel’s make-out session with a then-married Oliver Saunders, her castmates shortly turned on her. Throughout an evening out in Vegas, each Lala and Raquel vied for Oliver’s consideration. Facet word – can somebody please explain WHY?
Raquel prevailed over Lala, and confronted the wrath of the ladies. A seemingly bitter (however spot on) Lala advised Raquel, “I’ll say — you consuming, I might by no means belief you round my man. By no means.”
In response, Raquel remarked, “I imply, like thank God you don’t have a person to love f–king have round.” Lala had no phrases after the savage comeback. After selecting up her jaw off the ground, Lala advised Raquel she was going to “shut” her down. Then went to mattress.
The following day, Lala nursed her bruised ego. She advised Katie and Kristina that she bowed out of the dialog as a substitute of getting right into a battle with Raquel. However she famous that she believed Raquel “instantly needed to retract” what she mentioned. Lala added, “I really feel nervous at this level in my life with anybody who’s gonna be a legal responsibility and who’s unpredictable.”
However in her confessional, Lala talked an enormous recreation. “If Raquel weren’t wasted proper now, I’d put the b–ch proper again in her grave,” Lala acknowledged. Positive, woman!
Katie added to the concept Raquel wasn’t to be trusted by calling her “Mrs. I’m gonna make out along with your man.” She additionally advised her buddies, “Disguise your youngsters, disguise your boyfriend, disguise your boyfriend, disguise your boyfriend.” Honest.
Clearly, Katie already had good reason to be wary of Raquel. Raquel admitted throughout a earlier episode that she tried to make out with Tom Schwartz, who remains to be within the midst of a divorce from Katie. “I’m beginning to see a sample in Raquel. Plainly she’s solely excited by males that her buddies are both married to or excited by, and that could be a huge crimson flag for me,” Katie mentioned in her confessional.
Raquel overheard the dialog and cried, saying she was being judged for “getting drunk and having enjoyable.” After she sobered up, Raquel advised Lala that she was embarrassed. Lala wasn’t in a forgiving temper although. She replied to Raquel, “I feel anyone who’s a lady would take offense to what you mentioned. Do you are feeling that means? Like if somebody mentioned, ‘I don’t know that I’d really feel comfy when you had one too many drinks round my dude,’ do you actually really feel like, ‘properly when you can’t preserve him, then right here I’m!’ Do you are feeling that means?”
I imply, if you’re a lady or only a human who has watched VPR, we are able to all see the hypocrisy in Lala’s statements. Her relationship timeline with ex-fiancé Randall Emmett was always questionable and it’s one thing Lala has by no means actually clarified. To not point out the truth that Lala slept with James Kennedy when he was with Raquel. So there’s that.
Both means, the scenes had been filmed months earlier than the bombshell dropped that Sandoval had been carrying on a seven-month affair with Raquel behind Ariana’s again.
Provided that season 10 of VPR is at present airing (however not full), followers have questioned how a lot modifying is happening behind the scenes in gentle of the scandal. However Andy has denied any modifying and maintained previous to the episode that it was utterly untouched.
He acknowledged on his SiriusXM present Andy Cohen Live, “The conversations that go on between Katie and Lala and Raquel are to not be believed within the gentle of what has come out. That is the way it was going to be proven. Which makes it all of the extra stunning. You gained’t consider it.”
