The Vanderpump Rules cast members beat the love triangle to death
If viewers learned anything from Part 1 of Vanderpump Rules' Season 4 reunion, it's that absolutely nothing has changed between the SUR employees. They just can't help but rehash things over and over and over again.
Yes, a reunion is to talk about things that happened throughout the season, but when the conversation turns to the whole Ariana Madix, Tom Sandoval and Kristen Doute triangle, well, then you know you're going backward rather than forward.
Seriously, are they still talking about this? How long have Ariana and Sandoval been together? How long has Kristen been moving on from her former relationship with Sandoval? I mean, really, how much longer can these three talk about something that shouldn't even need discussing?
I think it's safe to say that Ariana and Sandoval are so over the conversation, but I'm not so sure about Kristen. When it comes to Kristen, it's hard to tell what she has up her sleeve. Host Andy Cohen steered the reunion to, as Ariana calls it, Kristen's "apology tour" and when Kristen "marched" into SUR to deliver an apology to Ariana's face.
Clearly, Ariana still doesn't believe Kristen is sorry and even said she thinks Kristen only did that to weasel her way into the Hawaii trip (which didn't happen). Ariana also mentioned that she is currently being "cordial" to Kristen as a favor to her friends, but she still despises Kristen. And by "cordial," I mean Ariana can be in the same room as Kristen but won't speak to her.
Of course, this all led to how Kristen felt when Sandoval had an "emotional affair" and kissed Ariana while they were dating. Then, that time Kristen and Jax Taylor had sex while she was with Sandoval came up. Why is this still a topic of conversation? They all need to put it behind them and move on for good from here on out.
Sandoval admitted to Andy that he "is at peace with Kristen," but when the past is brought up he gets heated and emotional about it all over again. I mean, I can't blame him, because that was a stressful time. That said, here's hoping this is the last time viewers will ever have to hear a discussion about their love triangle that isn't even a love triangle anymore. It's not like those were the good old days or anything.
Every time anything from the above is mentioned, Ariana and Sandoval look like they just want to run away. As for Kristen, well, it's like she welcomes the drama and making the two miserable by having them relive those horrible days of when there was even more tension and hate between the three. Kristen says she's trying to make everything better and become the bigger person, but I'm still not convinced.
Let's just have everyone cross their fingers that Part 2 of the reunion doesn't consist of events that happened way back in the day. These SUR servers really need to learn how to move forward during reunions.
Part 2 of the Vanderpump Rules Season 4 reunion airs Monday, March 28 at 9/8c on Bravo.
