When Vanderpump Rules first premiered in 2013, Bravo executives (shockingly) thought fans wouldn’t like it! Their reasoning? Producers were worried that viewers wouldn’t be interested in seeing people who lived in small, average apartments in comparison to the luxury mansions featured on The Real Housewives__ shows. Of course, we all know that #PumpRules became a runaway hit anyway, but now that the SURvers are legit celebrities, many of them have upgraded their tiny homes into luxury condos.
Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are the most recent cast members to move into a new home, buying a three-bedroom condo in the same building as Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney-Schwartz. “My dad always said if you have three bathrooms, you’re doing well,” Jax told The Daily Dish. “I’m at the point where I have three bed, three bath all to myself. That’s a lot of space, in my opinion.” And what does the couple plan to do with all that space? Turn it into a man cave, obviously. “Yes, that’s the number one reason why we need it,” Jax explained. “I need my man cave, she needs a room for her stuff, and then we have our room.”
However, not all the Pumps cast members upgrade their living situations. Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix still live in the same apartment featured in Season 1. Just last year, Ariana revealed that her ultimate dream is to be a homeowner. “Most of our friends have moved into bigger and better apartments with bigger and bigger rents to pay,” she told The Daily Dish. “We’re just trying to make sure that we have our ducks in a row. Hopefully, we’ll be able to start looking [for a house] soon.”
Although she hasn’t purchased her home yet, her dream is to own a craftsman style fixer-upper. “Having a front porch to me is so cool,” she gushed. “I want something that is updated on the important stuff, like plumbing, windows, things like that, but maybe a little bit of a fixer upper because Tom and I would love to be able to put our own stamp on things. That would be cool.”
