The Stars of ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Season 8 Filmed a Remote, Virtual Reunion
With the coronavirus pandemic and stay-at-home orders ongoing, season 8’s Vanderpump Rules reunion episode looks a little different this year. Bravo opted to host a virtual reunion, which each cast member tuned into remotely so it could be filmed for the 3-part reunion special.
Even though the reunion was not in-person this season, the cast wants fans to know that there will still be plenty of jaw-dropping drama. Katie Maloney told Hollywood Life “The virtual filming exceeded all of my expectations, actually. I didn’t know how that was going to go, because, you know, even just being on a [virtual] call now, we’re experiencing the difficulties that come with it. But our producers and everyone [on the tech team] figured out just a really amazing, crazy, setup and everything that [helped it go well]. I think it’s going to look really great and then on top of that, we, I think, killed it. I think we shot a really really really good reunion.”
Tom Schwartz felt similarly, adding that the reunion, while digital, will still have “the same intensity and awkwardness, [but] there’s like… there’s one moment I think that will really, really shock people. I can’t even allude to it at all because it would probably give it away. [But] there’s a — there was a shocker. There was a bombshell. I think people are going to be really, really pleased and impressed with and it was like, it went off without a hitch.”
On Instagram, Dayna Kathan said that the reunion taping was “still [expletive] insane and shocking?” in spite of being virtual.
As a guest on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen: @ Home, James Kennedy told Cohen “I thought it was really good. I thought that it was gonna be boring in the beginning, but after it was done, I was like, ‘This is the best reunion yet.’ I just didn’t know we were going to get our true emotions across the screen but it worked.”
