Robert Valletta Blames Vanderpump Rules Cast For Scheana Marie Breakup: They’re Savages!

Long before Vanderpump Rules Season 6 debuted at the beginning of December, word got out that Scheana Marie and Robert Valletta had broken up after just a few weeks of dating.

It’s a strange situation for viewers, who are just now getting their first real insights into Rob’s character and personality, despite the fact that he has no real ties to the cast any longer.

Of course, it sounds like if Scheana gets her way, he’ll soon be welcomed back into the fold.

Yes, as you may have noticed if you caught Monday night’s episode, Scheana–to borrow a phrase coined by Tom Sandoval–is a bit “Rob-sessed.”

At one point, she openly discussed her desire to marry Valletta, even though they’d only been formally dating for a few months and she was still married to Mike Shay at the time.

But the clearest indication that Scheana would lay down in traffic if Rob asked her to may have been her willingness to ignore the many obvious signs that Valletta was cheating.

In the past, Scheana has harshly criticized friends of hers for being naive about their boyfriends’ infidelity, but she was hearing none of it when several members of her inner circle tried to convince her that Rob had been unfaithful.

Even now that their relationship is over, both parties claim they called it off for reasons that have nothing to do with infidelity.

Scheana appeared on Watch What Happens Live Monday night, and Rob called in, seemingly for no other reason than to blame her friends for their breakup:

“The truth is, it’s really hard in her circle of friends,” Rob said. 

“Individually, when they’re by themselves, they’re really great people, but you put that group of people together and they’re savages. They come after you, and it’s really hard to have a successful relationship with those people coming and attacking you from all sides.”

“Friends say Rob is using her,” an insider claimed.

Here’s the thing:

Despite the fact that he’s the sort of unrepentant d-bag who toasts to “falling in love with something new every day,” we’re actually with Rob on this one.

Scheana’s friends are a pack of sociopaths, and we can’t imagine any healthy relationship existing in that environment.

But that doesn’t mean Rob isn’t shady as hell.

These days, Valletta and Scheana are friends with benefits, and those who know the couple best say he’s only maintaining ties with the SUR girl in order to help his career.

“Every single time Rob is in town, she invites him to an event with her,” one insider tells Radar Online.

“They know that they are much more in-demand together than apart.”

Sadly, it seems Scheana doesn’t see the situation for what it is, and in fact still looks at Rob as husband material.

“Scheana would marry him in a heartbeat if he wanted to marry her,” the source claims.

“But he’s told her that he does not want to be tied down, and she keeps telling him that he will regret it.”

Scheana, you’re helping this guy’s career and having no strings attached sex with him, all the while assuring him that you’ll happily settle down and get married if he ever decides he wants to.

Believe us when we say you’re not giving him a ton of incentive to hurry up and settle down.

Jax Taylor: Father of Vanderpump Rules Star Dies Following Battle With Cancer

Sad news out of the world of reality television today, as Ronald Cauchi, the father of Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor, has passed away following a battle with cancer.

Taylor broke the news to his social media followers with a heartfelt message last night:

“My heart is broken, I lost my best friend and the best man I have ever met last night, I love you so much dad I can’t even breathe anymore, only person not letting me fall right now is my amazing girlfriend. I love you dad,” Jax tweeted.

Taylor first revealed that his father was battling stage IV cancer earlier this month:

“Yes cancer f–king sucks, watching my father go through this is killing me.. prayers to all the families that have to deal with this awful disease,” he tweeted on December 4.

“I don’t wish this disease on my worst enemy. #f–kcancer watching your loved ones battle while I sit and watch is the worst feeling.”

In the weeks that followed, Taylor opened up about his father’s illness in a number of candid interviews:

“It’s rough, because my dad, he’s like my idol,” Jax told The Daily Dish on December 11.

“My dad was always the person who never got sick, I always looked up to him. … It’s hurt our family. It’s hurt everybody. It just really sucks. During the holidays, it doesn’t make it any easier.”

Shortly thereafter, he made similar comments in an interview with Us Weekly:

“What do I want for Christmas this year? I want cancer to be out of my father’s body,” he told the magazine.

“If I can ask for anything right now, I just want my dad to be better.”

Jax’s co-stars have publicly offered their condolences and words of support on social media:

“Let’s flood @mrjaxtaylor with love and compassion. So sorry for your loss my friend,” tweeted VPR fan favorite Tom Schwartz.

“I’m so sorry brother,” remarked SUR restaurant manager Peter Madrigal.

Jax’s famous boss, Lisa Vanderpump, has urged fans to allow Jax his privacy and give his family time to heal.

Our thoughts go out to the Taylor family during this difficult time.

Watch Vanderpump Rules online to remind yourself of how Jax became one of the reliably amusing stars in the reality TV galaxy.


Vanderpump Rules Stars Strip Down for PETA!

The only thing better than getting naked is getting naked for a good cause. Or maybe the only thing better than supporting a good cause is supporting it while you're naked?

Either way, three of Vanderpump Rules' hottest stars are teaming up and stripping down to protest against orcas being held in marine circuses like SeaWorld.

And, as you'll see in the video below, they're wearing some very interesting body paint. …

Peta slash vanderpump rules 2

For those of you hoping to see Lisa Vanderpump wearing nothing but body paint … we've very sorry to disappoint.

But we hope that Ariana Madix, Lala Kent, and Scheana Shay won't leave you disappointed.

Nudity isn't inherently sexual, but it sure does grab people's attention. 

Just look at how good Scheana Marie Shay looks in body paint:

If your message is important, you might want to make sure that you hook people's attention.

Controversial animal rights organization PETA, which has been slammed in the past by political opponents but also by big-time proponents of animal rights who accuse PETA of hypocrisy and of misguided practices, uses nudity a lot.

PETA even made some weird bestiality posters in a recent push to promote veganism.

Sometimes the message gets lost.

But when it comes to this particular campaign, it's not difficult to agree with PETA or these three Vanderpump Rules beauties.

The video below isn't just skin and body paint (though those are also factors). It's also 

Ariana Madix makes sure that their goals are clear, saying:

"Today we're here with PETA shooting a campaign to release the orcas into seaside sanctuaries from SeaWorld."

Her costar, Scheana, adds some grim information about the prospects for captive orcas:

"Orcas have died at SeaWorld and the fact that none of them died from old age is just insane."

That is so, so sad.

Lala Kent shares how the release of captive orcas from marine circuses like SeaWorld is important to her.

"When I saw the documentary, Blackfish, it literally changed my entire life."

That documentary did wonders for raising awareness.

"I found my passion and I found my voice and I will not stop until any place like SeaWorld is completely shut down."

That's a powerful personal cause to have.

"Places like SeaWorld or the Miami Sea Aquarium … it is the equivalent to me of taking a baby and putting them in a bathtub and having them grow up there."

That might be a bit of a stretch — maybe forcing a baby to grow up within a single room, also unforgivably awful, would be a better analogy.

(We're not blaming Lala for that — PETA has compared meat-eating to rape in the past; being inflammatory is arguably part of their brand)

Peta slash vanderpump rules 4

Lala continues:

"When you take a mammal of that size and put it into basically a swimming pool, you can't expect it to do anything but self-destruct."

Sadly, we know of countless instances of orcas doing just that. They lose their minds.

Ariana provides her own thoughts:

"Orcas are very social animals and they're very intelligent animals."

That's very true.

Peta slash vanderpump rules 6

"Each pod has their own language. So you have orcas from all different pods who are living in these bathtubs."

Conflict in that situation seems inevitable. And so does misery.

"They're fighting with each other because they have no way of communicating, they're confused, and they're full of anguish, and it shouldn't be that way."

As far as PETA advertisements go, this one is solid. It's an idea that we can all get behind.

Shout-out to these three Vanderpump Rules stars for using their platform for good!

Vanderpump Rules Season 6 Trailer: Is Scheana Being Cheated On?!

Well, fall is here again, which means it's time to find out exactly how the men and women of SUR effed their lives up over the summer.

Yes, another season of Vanderpump Rules is upon us, and things are a little different this year.

For one thing, Season 6 doesn't debut until December (boo).

But on the bright side, Lala Kent will return after abruptly quitting the show last season (yay).

As for your favorite couples–we're afraid we have some bad news.

With the exception of Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix, it seems just about anyone everyone on the cast has endured a breakup since last season.

The dissolution of Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright, of course, was chronicled in the little-watched Jax and Brittany Take Kentucky.

(Count your blessings if you skipped that ill-conceived slog.)

The rest of the splits, however, will apparently be documented on VPR.

The trailer focuses primarily on the Scheana Marie-Robert Valletta breakup what we learned about last week.

One scene explains the split by showing Lala inform Scheana that Robert cheated on her.

A bit ironic, perhaps, given that Lala walked away from the show last year due to scrutiny of her love life, but whatever.

As long as there's drama we're happy … and it certainly looks like this season delivers.

Watch Vanderpump Rules online to get caught up in time for Season 6, and check out the full trailer below:

Lala Kent: Returning to Vanderpump Rules!

We’re just weeks away from the premiere of Vanderpump Rules Season 6, and it seems fans can expect plenty of drama when the SUR crew makes its long-awaited return.

Relationship changes have dominated the off-season with non-stop bad news about several established couples.

In August, Stassi Schroeder revealed that she’d been dumped by Patrick Meagher on what was supposed to be the former couple’s fourth anniversary.

Shortly thereafter, news that Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney were headed for divorce began to circulate on social media.

(The couple has yet to confirm that they’ve called it quits, and it seems they’ve recently decided to “keep up appearances” on social media.)

Last week, we learned that Scheana Marie and Robert Valletta have split up after less than a year together.

And just yesterday, it was confirmed that Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright have called it quits.

But it’s not all bad news and breakups in West Hollywood.

In a recent interview with Too Fab, Vanderpump stars Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix and their pet sh-t weasel, James Kennedy, confirmed some big-but not entirely unexpected news–about the show’s upcoming season:

It seems that after a one-season hiatus, Lala Kent will be returning to the series that made her almost famous.

As you may recall, Lala quit Vanderpump abruptly last season after butting heads with her female castmates.

Of course, triumphant returns aren’t unheard of on VR, as Stassi previously left the show, moved to New York, and was brought back in response to popular demand.

(It seems the forgotten Vail Bloom now has the dubious honor of being the only regular cast member to make a permanent departure from the show.)

“Me and her are a very dynamic duo on the show, obviously,” James said of Lala at a Halloween event sponsored by Maxim last night.

“We like music together, so it’s good to have her back.”

Ariana chimed in with a breakdown of the ways in which life has changed since we last checked in at SUR:

“Dynamics are shifting,” Madix said.

“Things are growing and changing. Things are maybe falling apart, getting put back together. Just when you think that there’s not gonna be any more drama, you think like, ‘Oh, they’ve done it all.’ No, there’s always something else.”

Kennedy also revealed that he’s been re-hired at SUR after being ousted for his boozy behavior last year.

He also hinted at at least one more major surprise for fans this season:

“That’s a secret,” he added, thus begging the question of why he brought it up at all.

“That’s a surprise to the season. We can’t give that out yet. People have been waiting for me. They thought I’d be left in the dirt, but it’s good to be back at SUR. Lisa’s amazing.”
