When the Vanderpump Rules cast takes a trip together for someone’s birthday, it usually yields incredible results. And when the Vanderpump Rules cast takes a trip to Las Vegas together? Magic ensues. And when the Vanderpump Rules cast goes to Las Vegas for a birthday extravaganza? Holy Panky the swan, it is the stuff of legend. My fellow Pump head, there may be another iconic Pump Rules Vegas birthday excursion in our midst. Jax Taylor, Tom Sandoval, Brittany Cartwright, Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz, and Ariana Madix are all in Las Vegas right now, based on their social media posts. The reason: Taylor and Sandoval’s birthdays.
All of this calls to mind two very important Pump Rules birthday trips. The first being the Season 4 Hawaii vacation in honor of Sandoval and Taylor’s days of birth. The second is, of course, Stassi Schroeder’s Season 1 birthday party in Las Vegas. Two of the finest moments in Pump Rules hist-SUR-y, and two of the many reasons why this show is legitimately one of the greatest television programs of our time.
And that is saying something, given how many incredible vacations have happened on this show. One gave us stolen sunglasses and tampon flasks, the other gave us a parking lot fight that launched a thousand chunky knit sweaters. For the love of Schwartz's triplet brothers, one of those trips was so special, it earned its very own doll tribute.
Back in January, the Pump women went to Vegas for Cartwright's birthday. Judging from their social media posts, it looked like a blast; Britney Spears, Taco Bell, and Pump Rules is a beautiful combination. Sadly, this adventure happened after Season 5 filming wrapped and before Season 6 began. Cartwright's festivities would not be part of the show. So devastating.
But July, as anyone who keeps close tabs on the Pump Rules offseason knows, is usually when Pump Rules filming is in full swing. The Bravo cameras have to be in Vegas with the SURvers this time around, right? They can’t not film SURvers celebrating a birthday party in Vegas, right?
Especially when it harkens back to two of the best Pump Rules outings in Pump Rules hist-SUR-ry.
Happy birthday, Jaxypoo and Sandoval. May your Vegas weekend be a blast, and may the Bravo cameras be omnipresent.
