Is Bravo’s Reality Show ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Scripted or Real? All You Need to Know

Popular Bravo TV reality show, Vanderpump Rules, was first introduced as a spin-off of its other hit show, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Since its debut, the show has managed to garner millions of views from across the world.

The show follows the day-to-day life of Lisa Vanderpump and the workers – also the cast members – of her eatery, SUR. For a reality television show, it has it all — the drama, tears, love, relationships, conflicts, and more.

However, viewers of the show have raised their eyebrows in recent times. They have been wondering how much of the show is real and how much is scripted.

So, is Vanderpump Rules fake? Or real? Read on to learn everything that we know!


Some Former Cast Members Say It’s Not Completely Real

If you have watched Vanderpump Rules, you will surely know Jax Taylor, a former cast member who bid farewell to the show in 2020.

On May 5, 2021, Taylor gave an exclusive interview with US Weekly. He mentioned that the validity of the show’s storylines was one of the key reasons behind his and his wife Brittany Cartwright’s – also a part of the show – exit.

He said, “I was 100 percent checked out at the end. I was just very irritable on the show. It was getting a little bit too scripted for me and I just couldn’t do it anymore. It wasn’t fun.”


His wife further added that their newly born son Cruz was another big reason behind their decision to leave the show. Her words were:

We put a lot of our heart and soul into that show and we’re very open and very real. Having a kid changes your perspective on how much you want to put out there. People are mean and they mom-shame and everything else. I would be scared for that part.

This statement from Taylor came two months after his Instagram live session, where he basically said that the show was fake. Some of his statements from that session were:

I put up a fight last year a lot. See, I felt bad for the producers to be honest because, uh, there is so many scenes I didn’t want to do, I didn’t wanna fight like, you know I’m fourty years old fighting with people – fake fighting with people – half my age. It’s not fun or ideal. I’m not gonna pretend to work at SUR “fake work at SUR” for another six years.

“To be honest, I really haven’t changed,” he added. “I’m not gonna lie like ‘Oh my God, you’ve changed, you’re a better person.’ No, I’m not just being paid for being an [expletive] anymore. When people are paying you to be a douchebag it’s really easy. When they’re paying you a lot of money, you gotta keep a part certain.”


These statements from Taylor were completely different from the one he told In Touch in 2018 when he was still associated with the show.

At that time, he said, “I pride myself on [the fact that] we have a real show, and I’m not going to sit there and sugarcoat things. With cameras there or not, this is how I am.”

Due to his contradicting statement, many assumed that his recent claim of Vanderpump Rules being fake or scripted is false as he is no longer a part of the show.


However, back in 2016, another cast of the show, Katie Maloney, also hinted that the show was somewhat scripted.

In her interview with Galore, she said that the show is “pretty not-scripted” as their relationships are real. “We all have our history. There are plenty of shows out there that are kind of [cast] in ways where people don’t have any kind of history prior,” she added.

Continuing her statement, she said, “But, it’s also hard when making a show as they can’t show everything and they don’t show everything that’s positive.”


In addition, she mentioned that the production crew shows “everything that’s negative that can paint people in certain lights that aren’t true to form, but it’s still real.”

‘Vanderpump Rules’ Fans on Reddit and Twitter Have Their Say

Coming over to what the fans of the Bravo TV show have to say on the topic, some have given their approval and believe that the show is not real and is scripted. Here are some of their discussion on Reddit and Twitter.

In a discussion thread on Reddit, one fan had asked a question saying, “Which scenes do you think were totally fake or acted out throughout all eight seasons?” To that one had replied writing


There was a scene with Ariana Madix and Lisa Vanderpump that was restaged a few months later because of filming issues. You can tell because Ariana’s hair grows as the scene goes on lol.

Later, another fan replied to that comment and added, “Not really a fake scene but kind of a fake initial storyline: Jax wasn’t initially cast on Vanderpump rules right away. Stassi was cast and they asked her who she was dating and she said Jax. BRAVO met with him and hired him for the show and then he was hired to work at SUR as part of the storyline.”

Similarly, one fan had said that the argument between Tom Sandoval and Stassi Schroeder at TTs in season 8 was staged. Another fan agreed with the comment as they said, “Absolutely! It was so ridiculous. Like an improv class without the humor.”

On another Reddit thread, one fan had asked the question, “How scripted is vanderpump?”


Several fans of the show gave their own opinions. One had said, “IDK if it’s scripted by Bravo but I assume members of the cast, off camera, discuss what they plan to say or do on camera/ how they intend to treat certain cast members.”

“It’s pretty scripted I think. Watch the Tom cheating on Katie story line in Season 3. They said it was with Jaxs gfs friend. In Season 5 it got brought up again and it was a different story. Said Jax was with Carmen a different girl there. So a completely different backstory on it. That story was a lie,” another fan commented.

The same kind of thread could be found on Twitter too. For instance, in November 2016, one fan had tweeted, “i know vanderpump rules is fake bc no way do u have time to smoke a cig and break up w your bf in the middle of the dinner rush.”


“Unpopular opinion: cancel vanderpump rules. It’s over. It’s fake. It’s boring. It makes me sad #pumprules,” another die-hard fan of the show had tweeted on February 2020.

Is ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Fake?

Can Vanderpump Rules be said fake or scripted, considering all of the scenarios mentioned above?

Well, nothing can be said for certain as there are some real aspects to the show. However, there are also some aspects that have been concocted or spiced up for the viewers’ entertainment.


Additionally, there have been continuity errors on several occasions that could easily be pointed out. To conclude, it cannot be said that Vanderpump Rules is entirely real and fully scripted too.

Alabama Barker Says She Is Dropping Her Makeup Line in 2023

All about Alabama Barker’s upcoming make-up line.



Alabama Barker Says She Is Dropping Her Makeup Line In 2023

Alabama Barker, an internet personality, is set to launch her own makeup line this year.

Life and Style Magazine reported in December 2021 that Barker was launching a makeup line.

The report came after a fan commented on one of her TikTok videos, “If you made a makeup line, I would literally buy every product double,” to which Barker replied, “I am, babe,” with several cute emojis.


Barker recently revealed the launch date for her makeup line. On March 22, 2023, the internet personality posted the story to ask her question.

Following the story, many of her fans bombarded her with questions, one of which was, “When are you dropping the makeup line because I’m ready?” 

“Very soon!!” said Barker in response to the question. “Coming this year.” Later, the official page of TikTok Insider Info posted the screenshot of Barker’s story and captioned, “#alabamabarker to release a makeup line at some point this year!” 


Many of Barker’s fans were overjoyed to hear the news. “I’m actually excited, I can’t lie,” one person said, while another wrote, “Slay, I can’t wait.”

Unfortunately, the internet personality did not reveal details about her line’s release. However, she is surrounded by plenty of businesswomen who can help her. After all, her father, Travis, is married to Kourtney Kardashian. 

Barker’s stepmother Kourtney founded, and her sisters, Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian, both own major beauty brands.  


Jenner recently added a new product to her beauty line. On March 22, 2023, the 25-year-old entrepreneur launched a mascara line under her Kylash brand. Her volume mascara is designed to give full, lifted, defined lashes that feel weightless. The mascara line has been in development for more than a year. She registered the Kylash trademark in April 2022.

Moreover, according to a TMZ report, Jenner is working on cosmetic preparations, extension fibers, eyelash serums, tints, and eye makeup remover for her line.

Barker might have drawn inspiration from her stepmother’s sister’s success in the cosmetics industry. She also unquestionably received immense support and guidance from the Kardashians.


Alabama Barker’s net worth in 2023

Barker is estimated to have a net worth of $1 million. However, this figure is not verified because her actual earnings and net worth are yet to be revealed.

Barker primarily earns money through her influence as a well-known social media personality. She also makes a good living from her self-titled YouTube channel, which has over 76,700 subscribers and 4.9 million views.

Her channel typically features a variety of content, such as music videos, challenges, DIY, and more.

The internet personality has also released multiple songs such as ‘Mistletoe,’ ‘Blue Christmas,’ and many more.

Furthermore, Barker is the daughter of American musician Travis, so her lifestyle is lavish. As previously stated, the internet personality is going to release her own line of cosmetics, so her net worth could increase shortly.

Inside Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s Height Difference

There is a noticeable height difference between Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.



Benedict Cumberbatch And Martin Freeman’s Height Difference

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are both British actors who are perhaps best known for their roles in the television series Sherlock, which aired from 2010 to 2017.

In the series, Cumberbatch played the title character, Sherlock Holmes, while Freeman portrayed his sidekick, Dr. John Watson. Fans of the show have been obsessed with the height difference between the two actors, with many taking to social media to discuss and comment on it.

According to their IMDB bios, Cumberbatch stands at 6’0″ (183 cm) while Freeman stands at 5’7″ (170 cm). This means there is a noticeable height difference between the two actors when they appear on screen together.


Fans reacted to the height differences

Fans have been discussing the height difference between Cumberbatch and Freeman, and this has been a topic of discussion and memes on social media.

Twitterati has burst with a post that compared the height of these two The Hobbit actors. One Twitter user posted a photo where Cumberbatch and Freeman stood together.

She wrote in the caption, “I’m the same height as martin freeman.. So this is basically mine and benedict Cumberbatch’s heights compared..”


The post compared the height of both actors from their hands to their heads.

On a fan page dedicated to Cumberbatch, a photo was posted featuring Coca-Cola bottles of varying heights, with the bottle labeled ‘Ben’ being taller than the one labeled ‘Martin.’

The caption mocked the height of Cumberbatch and Freeman as it read, “even the height difference is accurate…”

Like the meme above, one of the Twitter users tweeted, “Benedict Cumberbatch is 14 Martin Freemans tall.”

In reply to the tweet, another user tweeted, “But when Benedict Cumberbatch takes his shoes off, his mouth is magically level with Martin Freeman’s face. Nature has decreed it so.”

The tall height of Cumberbatch alone has always dragged the attention of the fans. One fan tweeted, “I hate when I’m trying to sleep then I’m overwhelmed with the need to google something, like how tall is Benedict Cumberbatch I need to know.”


Similarly, the other one wrote on Twitter, “So, I just met Benedict Cumberbatch. I can’t stop shaking. How is he so tall? I barely come up to his frickin’ shoulder.”

Something not well between Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman

It’s not surprising that Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are compared to each other, especially since Freeman also played a dwarf in the movie The Hobbit. Along with the fan’s comparison, there was a certain feud seen among the actors.

Mirror, in 2014, also reported that the two actors had a “toxic feud” on the set of the hit TV series Sherlock. According to the article, tensions rose between the two stars due to creative differences and egos. Freeman reportedly felt overshadowed by Cumberbatch’s popularity and the attention his character, Sherlock Holmes, was receiving.


According to the anonymous source, the two actors had a complicated working relationship and barely spoke to each other by the end of the show’s third season. It also suggested that Freeman’s dissatisfaction with the show’s direction may have contributed to his decision to leave after the fourth season.

Freeman, known for his role in The Office, has expressed his dissatisfaction with the overwhelming fan attention that comes with starring in Sherlock.“Being in that show, it is a mini-Beatles thing. People’s expectations, some of it’s not fun anymore,” he said.

In contrast, during an interview with The Telegraph in April 2018, Cumberbatch expressed his disagreement and criticized his co-star’s remarks. He noted, “I’m very grateful for the support, but that’s about it. It takes on its own thing. But that happens with every franchise or entity like this.”

Fans Want Nessa Barrett to Collab with Lana Del Rey and Blackbear

Will Nessa Barrett work with Lana Del Rey and Blackbear in the future?



Fans Want Nessa Barrett To Collab With Lana Del Rey And Blackbear

Fans want American singer Nessa Barrett to collaborate with Lana Del Rey and Mat Musto aka Blackbeard, after they followed each other on Instagram.

Barrett’s fans became excited about the collaboration with Lana Del Rey after she mentioned her name in an interview at the American Music Awards. She was asked, “if you could record with one artist then who would it be?” to which Barrett said, “I feel like Lana. I just love her and I am very inspired by her. She is all over my playlist. I feel like she has just a distinct style. I appreciate her as an artist.” 

On November 21, 2022, Variety posted a clip of her interview with the caption, “Nessa Barrett says her dream collaborator is Lana del Rey.” Following the post, many Barretts’ fans expressed their desire to see them in a future album.


One social media user wrote, “omg these two women would be so iconic together,” while another said, “friend I saw you talking about her and now I read this here I also remembered you kkkkk,” in Portuguese.

Barrett and Del Rey started following each other on social media shortly after Barrett mentioned her desire to collaborate with Del Rey. Barrett also followed Blackbear, which his followers noticed right away and expressed their desire for them to collaborate in the music. 

Similarly, whore4tea posted a screenshot of their social media account showing that they had recently followed each other and wrote, “First Lana Del Rey followed her, now blackbear?? We need a collaboration!” followed by a smiley and a heart emoji.


Even though fans are excited to see Barrett, Lana Del Rey, and Blackbear working together on new music, the singers have yet to respond. 

Nessa Barrett is TikToker turned singer

When Barrett first entered the public eye, she was well-known for her lip-syncing videos, and now, she’s kicked off a pretty massive music career. She first released her piano-based ballad debut single ‘Pain’ in 2020.

Later in October of the same year, Barrett released her second single, ‘If U Love Me,’ and in August 2021, her song ‘I Hope Ur Miserable Until Ur Dead’ debuted at number 88 on the Billboard Hot 100. 


Barrett’s life has revolved around music. “If I’m being honest, music is one of the only ways that I can express myself because I can say so much that’s on my mind without actually saying it,” she said in an interview with the music blog Cool Accidents. “It’s my only outlet, my only coping skill and it does help.”

Blackbear dropped out of high school to pursue a music career

Growing up with a heroin-addicted father, Blackbear found solace and escape in music. He then dropped out of high school to pursue music full-time and began sending demos to people in the music industry. 

Later, he received one response from the manager of R&B singer Ne-Yo, who invited the young Mat to Los Angeles to spend a week writing songs with him. 


Since then, Blackbear entered the music industry and released various studio albums, including, Deadroses, Help, Digital Druglord, and many more. 

Lana Del Rey has had a lifelong interest in music

Del Rey began her career by performing at open mic nights and club gigs. She entered a songwriting competition in 2006; she did not win, but a panel judge assisted her in creating a demo, which led to her signing with the indie label ‘5 Points.’

Later, Del Rey posted self-made music videos for her songs ‘Video Games’ and ‘Blue Jeans’ to YouTube in 2011, with vintage footage interspersed with shots of her singing on her webcam.


After a lengthy career in the music industry, her song ‘Born to Die’ achieved commercial success, charting at number one in 11 countries and debuting at number two on the US Billboard 200 album chart. She has since released several albums, including Born to Die, Ultraviolence, Lust for Life, and many more.
