When it comes to Vanderpump Rules, let's be honest:
Drama is what truly rules.
Along those lines, scroll down for a look at the most intense and explosive feuds in the history of this Bravo series...
Stassi Schroeder v. Kristen Doute
Back when Vanderpump Rules kicked off, the mean girl clique consisted of Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute and Katie Maloney. That all fell apart when it emerged that Kristen had indulged in some sexy time with Stassi's ex-boyfriend Jax Taylor. It resulted in the scene above. The best part of it was when Lisa Vanderpump tried to get Stassi to apologize for lifting her hands. “She deserved to be slapped 47 more times,” Stassi replied, not giving a damn about the damage she did to Kristen's face. It's all class in WeHo.
Scheana v. The Mean Girl Clique
Scheana was ecstatic when Stassi publicly trashed the cast of the series because it gave her the opportunity to take her place in the clique. Scheana, Katie, and Kristen wound up getting along well. That all changed when Stassi realized SUR's fried goat cheese balls were the best in the business, and weaseled her way back into the clique, even making up with Kristen Doute. From then, things took a tense turn when the girls tried to say who Scheana could hang around with. It was horrible. If anything good came out of it, it was the above GIF with Scheana trashing Tequila Katie.
James Kennedy v. Tom Sandoval
When Tom Sandoval finally got rid of Kristen Doute, he had a new friend and roommate in James. But then Kristen appeared on the scene after drinking a few bottles of Sauvignon Blanc and slept with James, before stealing him away from her ex-boyfriend. Nowadays, all three of them are still against one another, and Kirsten is probably still paying both of their bills.
Tequila Katie v. Stassi
Katie was not impressed with the way Stassi kept telling her who she could hang around with and the BFFs cut all ties, with Katie moving on to be friends with Scheana, and all was right in the world. Until Stassi returned and fought to have the friendship back. Somewhat confusing about the whole thing: Somewhere along the way, Katie essentially became Stassi by trying to pick out who her friends should hang around with.
Ariana Madix v. Kristen Doute
Kristen has always had it out for Ariana because in her eyes a man and a woman can't just be friends. Long before Kristen and Tom Sandoval parted ways, Ariana and Tom were friends in SUR. Kristen kept trying to play up to the cameras that they were boning. However, Kristen was the one left red-faced when it emerged that she was the one having the affair... with Jax Taylor. To this day, Ariana hates Kristen and ignores her at all social gatherings. It's awkward, but all they need is some alcohol to settle it once and for all.
Jax Taylor v. Stassi Schroeder
Jax Taylor battled to win back Stassi when she first cut him loose, but all of that was for nothing when she got wind of him and Kristen's sexual encounters while Tom Sandoval was sleeping a few feet away from them. Jax has always been very convincing and he tried to make her think it was all a big fat rumor. When she found out the truth, however, she cut him off. Bizarrely, she wanted him back in her life recently for her dumb podcast.
Stassi vs. Scheana Marie
We all know Scheana can be a little dramatic, but she's not malicious, like some of her costars. After a string of ups and downs, Scheana became friends with Stassi. All of that was for nothing, however, when it emerged that Stassi was not there for her when she fell and broke her tooth. Their scenes were tense, but also full of shade. See above!
Kristen Doute v. Lisa Vanderpump
Kristen Doute was the worst SUR employee, like, ever. She loved to have arguments during her shift at work, much to the ire of Lisa Vanderpump. Despite several warnings to stop bringing drama to SUR, Kristen opted to bring a girl across the country who apparently slept with Tom while he was with Ariana. Kristen had obviously drunk five bottles of Sauvignon Blanc because she went bat$hit crazy, telling a manager to "go suck a d--k." That was the final straw for Lisa, and Kristen was let go. Even the chefs were glad to see her go.
Lala Kent v. The Mean Girl Clique
The girls did not like Lala Kent. They did not like how open she was about herself. Mostly, they were probably jealous that Lala was getting to go to Europe for free and apparently did nothing in return for the accommodation or the travel. Things were rocky from the get-go, and Stassi, Kristen and Katie quickly targeted Lala for allegedly being in a relationship with a married man. It did not help matters that Lala was apparently getting her friends to sign NDAs. Despite Scheana's initial involvement in the bullying, she quickly apologized. Lala, however, could not handle the bullying and decided to bid adieu to the show.
Tom Schwartz v. Tequila Katie
Katie Maloney was so bad with alcohol that everyone now refers to her as Tequila Katie. She goes crazy, sends abusive text messages to her friends and is just an unpleasant person to drink alcohol with. Poor Tom could barely say anything without her screaming at him. So, he decided to take on a new tactic and pour drinks over her instead of in her mouth. It didn't work, but they're married now.
Lisa Vanderpump v. Stassi Schroeder
Lisa was pissed because Stassi ghosted on her, even though Lisa had done a lot for her over the years. Lisa did not want her in SUR when she returned, even saying on one occasion that SUR offered food she could take out of the building, as opposed to sitting inside.
Jax Taylor v. Brittany Cartwright
Jax Taylor shocked audiences when he told everyone that he returned home from a night out to witness Kristen and Brittany getting hot and heavy and there was apparently a lot of tongue action. It just sucks the Bravo cameras were not around for that one. Brittany burst into fits of tears whenever it was brought up because she felt like Jax was doing it all for attention. No, Brittany, he was doing it so both of you remained on the show and got a spin-off.
Ariana v. Stassi
Ariana is the only girl on Vanderpump Rules who does not care about hanging around with the mean girls. Stassi took issue with Ariana because she did not want to give her the time of day. Just when the pair seemed to have turned a corner, Ariana sat down to watch previous episodes and realized Stassi had been trashing her.
