When The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills gave birth to a spinoff, Bravo's life was changed forever. Fans' lives were changed forever. And, of course, the Vanderpump Rules stars' lives were changed forever. A Sexy Unique Butterfly flapped its wings over half a decade ago, and now we have the SUR-ricane that is Vanderpump Rules.
Before Vanderpump Rules, the members of the main cast were aspiring actors/models/musicians who worked for Lisa Vanderpump at SUR. Before Vanderpump Rules, they were not household names. Before Vanderpump Rules, they were not regular guests on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Before Vanderpump Rules, they were just a group of friends trying to make their Hollywood dreams a reality. But all of that changed when Vanderpump Rules Season 1 premiered in 2013.
Five years later, the members of the Pump cast are full-blown Bravolebrities. The hit show has catapulted Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, Stassi Schroeder, Lala Kent, DJ James Kennedy, Kristen Doute, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz, and Scheana Marie’s careers, and this group of individuals has catapulted the show into the reality TV hall of fame.
Here are a few notable things that've happened in the Pump Rules stars' lives since joining the show.
