‘Vanderpump Rules’ Finale: The Shocking Truth Comes Out!

Helga Esteb /

What!? Wait. No!

Oh no, she didn’t… Oh yes. She… …did!?

Wow. Vanderpump Rules. Fans of the show were shocked. But not really. They weren’t shocked… how could they be shocked? These reality shows that are guided by a scripted outline are so epic. The poo hit the fan, my friends. It hit the fan and splattered everywhere. It splattered so hard that Jax got punched in the face by Tom, and was a bloody mess.

This all stemmed from the branch of suggestion earlier in the season, when Stassi accused Kristen of sleeping with Jax. And her accusation wasn’t delivered by a process server. It was dealt with swift process–she slapped Kristen right across her face, and even her expertly-styled hair.

Basically, for fans of the show who wanna know how it works, here’s how it all goes down. The producers already know where they’re “taking” an episode. They know that they’re going to introduce the drama via two volatile elements. Did the cast already know everything that was going down? Nah. Not everything. But, the player does. And when there’s a player, you know there’s going to be a “played.” In this case, Kristen was the catalyst through her admission that she slept with Jax while being the girlfriend of his best friend, Tom.

Individuals like Stassi Schroeder are put into the mix of a scene to offer what writers would call exposition. And wow, does she offer the best grade-D version of exposition I have ever heard. She sums it up so eloquently for those who might be tuning in for the first time (Check out the video below to see what I mean). But the played in this one was Tom. And woo boy, Tom reacts with a violent force of opposition.
