With almost 200 episodes to its name, Vanderpump Rules is notorious due to the drama brewing in the series. It doesn’t come off as a surprise for a show that survives through the drama, does it? The first spin-off from the infamous reality American TV show, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Vanderpump Rules has been the daily dose of entertainment for millions of people. Established in early 2013, this reality drama has successfully completed 10 seasons and has entertained a wide fanbase for a decade.
However, after the explosive tenth season, the future of the series has been a huge question mark. Add the brewing tension between the cast members in the mix and you’d know how Vanderpump Rules Season 11 has become a hot topic. Especially now that the term Scandoval has been trending. Seems like the original network behind Vanderpump Rules is unfazed by the drama sizzling between the cast members of the series.
Vanderpump Rules Season 11 Release Date
For reality TV shows dependent upon its cast members, it is unusual to be appraised this widely. The redundant stories of the same old cast members eventually tire viewers. However, with Vanderpump Rules, things are beyond dreary. This series keeps the viewers hooked, utilizing its vibrant and distinct cast members and their interpersonal dynamics. It mainly follows Lisa Vanderpump and her colleagues as they try to sort their careers and weave through backstabbing co-workers, awkward moments and endless drama.
Season 10 was hands down the most dramatic instalment of this series and since Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules survives on drama, it didn’t deter the show. In fact, the drama brewing between three leading cast members, Tom Sandoval (Yes, the infamous Scandoval), Rachel “Raquel” Leviss and Ariana Madix has increased the popularity of the series tenfold. It was the third most-watched television reality drama of the year. Of course, a follow-up season was warranted. So, Bravo approved Vanderpump Rules Season 11 in the blink of an eye. An official release date, however, is still not out but it wouldn’t be longer than late 2024.
Will The Animosity Between The Cast Members Affect The Series?
Well, the answer is blatantly obvious. The animosity between Raquel, Ariana and Tom would definitely affect Season 11. Tom Sandoval’s cheating fiasco has been the highlight of the previous season, this new instalment will be no different.
In the summer of 2022, the Scandoval drama commenced officially. The series stars, Tom, Ariana and Raquel were found trapped in a mess of conflicting emotions and accusations. Leviss, as we all know, has been previously involved with her co-star, Tom Schwartz. However, in March 2023, Leviss’ so-called motivational bonding with Sandoval was exposed publicly after Madix came across Leviss’ explicit video on Sandoval’s phone. Then, all hell broke loose and the nine-year-long relationship she shared with Sandoval crumbled down. Here ensued a string of accusations, apologies and of people siding with Ariana and belittling Raquel.
It’s obvious, Ariana is the victim here but some fans still believe Raquel didn’t destroy Ariana’s relationship on purpose. Since Leviss suffers from extreme anxiety issues and an identity crisis, she searched for love in the wrong places. Leviss hasn’t only confirmed her anxiety issues in a long Instagram post but has also started to seek treatment for her prognosis.
Was The Scandoval Drama Set Up To Boost Viewership Of Vanderpump Rules?
Several fan theories claim that the Scandoval drama was set up to boost viewership of the long-anticipated Vanderpump reunion. Almost all of the Vanderpump Rules stars have sided with Madix, be it Scheana Shay or Lala Kent. Their contempt towards the Scandoval drama has resulted in the boycott of Tom and Raquel. These stars have openly expressed their views on the alleged relationship Tom and Raquel carried out behind Ariana’s back.
However, these fan theories are tumultuous rumours, nothing more. Currently, Madix is trying to move on and has even started dating a fitness trainer, Daniel Wai. Vanderpump Rules Season 11 will surely be brimming with gossip, drama and accusations!
