‘Vanderpump Rules’ Spin-Off Featuring Jax Taylor, Kristen Doute, and Brittany Cartwright CONFIRMED!
There’s a brand new Vanderpump Rules spinoff in the works, according to a new Deadline report.
The new Bravo show will reportedly include former Pump Rules cast members, Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright and Kristen Doute. While the news has yet to be confirmed, the outlet reported that the new show’s first season will run eight episodes.
The reality series is expected to follow Taylor and Cartwright, who welcomed their first child together, Cruz, in 2021, and Doute as they adjust to their new lives in the San Fernando Valley.
The spinoff series follows a dramatic Season 10, which featured an explosive cheating scandal involving Tom Sandoval, his ex, Ariana Madix, and the cover band frontman’s paramour, Raquel Leviss.
Vanderpump Rules is a spinoff of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which starred restauranteur, Lisa Vanderpump, for nine seasons.
Taylor, 43, was an original VPR cast member when the show debuted in 2013. He was romantically involved with co-star, Stassi Schroeder, before dating Cartwright, 34. The pair tied the knot while cameras rolled, in 2019.
The couple announced that they were leaving the show shortly after they revealed that they were expecting their son.
“Although this is difficult to share, Brittany and I will not be returning for another season of Vanderpump Rules,” Taylor wrote on Instagram in December 2020. “We are excited to take this time to focus on our growing family and share with you our new endeavors.”
Doute was fired from the show in 2020, along with Schroeder, Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens, for exhibiting racist behaviors. Stassi was axed after a resurfaced podcast clip revealed the reality star admitting that in 2018, she and Doute told the police that a black female robbery suspect might be their co-star, Faith Stowers, who is also black. The reality stars later issued a public apology for their actions.
“Stassi and Kristen acknowledged what they did was wrong, have apologized and been punished. Without casting aside their actions or the impact of those actions, they want to move forward as part of the solution in ways that are productive, meaningful and sincere. Both of them recognize actions speak louder than words and that is what will guide them as they move forward,” the duo’s statement read, via their rep.
Doute popped in during the latest season of VPR to share her insight on the bombshell cheating scandal, as Sandoval’s ex-girlfriend. Doute and Sandoval dated from 2007-2014. Sandoval cheated on Doute multiple times during their relationship, including with Madix, who believed at the time that the couple had split.
Production for Season 11 recently kicked off and cast member, Lala Kent, spoke out about the quick turnaround during a recent Amazon Live session.
“They sent us like what our schedule may look like — it’s subject to change. And I’m just like, ‘Oh, we’re like really in it again,’” she said. “We usually have so much time to just kind of process… things change a lot. But it’s like, nope.”
