The Emmy-nominated Bravo reality series Vanderpump Rules will return for season 11 in the new year as revealed today at BravoCon.
After an explosive season 10 that took over every corner of the internet for months, fans won’t have to wait much longer to pour out a pumptini as Vanderpump Rules returns this January. Fans are undoubtedly eager to see how the group interacts with each other post #Scandoval — the bombshell cheating scandal between Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss. As they try to move on from a situation that changed their lives forever, the Tom’s are still operating their restaurants (TomTom and Schwartz & Sandy’s) while Ariana and Katie are gearing up to open their sandwich shop tucked on Robertson Blvd in West Hollywood, Something About Her. The girls spent last season putting the idea to paper and finding a space to house the shop. Since then, a lot of renovations have taken place, including the unfortunate patio roadblock that stalled the opening on SAH a few months back.
Amidst all of that, Lisa Vanderpump and her husband/business partner Ken Todd closed the doors over the summer on their iconic West Hollywood eatery, Pump. “While we have loved our time operating Pump, to take on another 10-year lease with a huge increase in rent by the landlords, is not something we are ready to commit to,” Vanderpump said in a statement back in May. “After successfully running 37+ establishments for many years, this type of rent is untenable.”
Speaking of Something About Her, fans attending BravoCon this weekend can try out the new Something About Her x Lay’s collaboration which features cocktails like “Something About Sangria,” rim dusted with crushed Lay’s; “I Take Sandwiches Very Seriously,” a PB&J Martini rim dusted with crushed Lay’s; OMGrilled Cheese and Tomato Soup, with toast made with Lay’s and soup infused with Lay’s Cheddar Sour Cream; Lay’s Chocolate Chip-Duo Cookies dusted and baked with crushed Lay’s and more. If you aren’t able to make it to the event, Lay’s is running a contest on their social media to win a special SAH package.
Rachel — formerly known as Raquel — will not return in the upcoming season, choosing to instead focus on her mental health. The cast for season 11 includes Vanderpump, Ariana Madix, James Kennedy, Katie Maloney, Lala Kent, Scheana Shay, Tom Sandoval, Tom Schwartz, Ally Lewber and Brock Davies.
