You thought last season was wild? You ain’t seen nothing yet. Vanderpump Rules and its raucous cast is back for season 8 — and it doesn’t look too pretty, as per the trailer. Lisa Vanderpump‘s SUR employees are joined by new faces … and the same old drama. Plus, longtime pals like Jax Taylor, Tom Sandoval, Katie Maloney-Schwartz, and Kristen Doute seem to all be hitting rough patches on the road of friendship.
“I don’t even know where to start,” the restaurateur said in her confessional, opening up the trailer clip on uncertain terms. From there, we got a throwback glimpse of the once-tight connection between Sandoval and Jax — before the 40-year-old blew up on his pal in a clip from the upcoming season. “The only person I’m having a problem with is you,” Jax said to the 36-year-old, who fired back with, “Do you even know me? Do you even f—king know me, dude?”
“This was years of friendship that I thought would last forever,” Lisa, 58, said in another confessional before the clip cut to a blowout fight between Katie and Kristen, 36. “You’re being an obnoxious person right now,” the 32-year-old told her friend, who replied, “You’re just a bitch to me all the time.” Stassi Schroeder even chimed in with her own POV. “Can you be real for just one second, Kristen?” the 31-year-old asked.
In another confessional, Lisa explained, “Suddenly everything kind of turned upside down.” Newcomers Dayna Kathan and Max Boyrens seemingly deal with some possible relationship drama, which seems to lead LVP to her staunch (and accurate) conclusion. “It’s great to have new faces,” the RHOBH alum said. “But their problems same as complicated as their predecessors’.”
Between new SURver Dayna getting into it with show vet Scheana Marie and the possible demise of James Kennedy and Raquel Leviss‘ relationship, it seems as though literally no one in this cast is safe from scrutiny this season. Though we’ll have to wait until January to see the drama truly unfold, you may as well start your countdown now: this one’s about to be a real doozy.
Vanderpump Rules returns on Bravo on January 7 at 9 p.m.
