Last night’s Vanderpump Rules reunion show may have brought the show’s fifth season to a dramatic conclusion, but it seems the cast is far from finished firing shots at one another.
The only difference now is that the war of words has shifted to social media, and believe it or not, it’s even uglier than what viewers witnessed on the series’ three-part reunion.
If you watch Vanderpump Rules online, you probably know that the latest season wasn’t terribly kind to Scheana Marie.
Not only did the show document her divorce from Mike Shay (a storyline that probably should’ve received more screen time), we also saw Scheana butting heads with the chick clique of Stassi Schroeder, Katie Maloney, and Kristen Doute.
The show wrapped filming last summer, and the reunion specials were taped a few weeks ago, but it seems that the tension between Scheana and her former friends is still running high.
She’s not fighting the battle alone, however, as Ariana Madix has been taking shots at Katie and company on Scheana’s behalf.
Unfortunately for Ariana, it looks as though Stassi is taking no prisoners in this battle.
It seems Ariana and Lala Kent both joined Scheana for an episode of online talk show Scheananigans, and naturally they went in on Scheana’s rivals.
According to Stassi and Kristen the episode featured all three of the ladies engaging in the sort of bullying behavior they’ve been accusing others of all season.
Stassi put Lala in her place months ago (While Kent somewhat redeemed herself with her reunion show appearances, she was deservedly torn apart in her Twitter feud with Schroeder.) and now it seems she’s set her sights squarely on Madix.
Schroeder responded to a tweet from Ariana’s brother by reminding the world that Jeremy Madix was once arrested on domestic abuse charges:
Yes, Stassi basically went nuclear, and it seems the escalation had the desired effect:
Ariana, usually never at a loss for words, has yet to respond to Stassi’s latest salvo.
Something tells us that long-gestating friendship between these two will never quite happen, but hey, at least you can’t accuse this crew of faking the drama for ratings.
A clearly feud-fatigued Kristen Doute remarked summarized the situation in a tweet posted moments ago, writing:
"Well.. I hope everyone enjoyed the final episode of #PumpRules Season 5! perfect timing for a dumb fucking twitter war."
Seriously, folks. Save it for when the cameras are rolling, so we can all watch!
