The New 'Vanderpump Rules' Cast Includes Stassi's Beau and Some New Faces From SUR

By

When Bravo first premiered RHOBH alum Lisa Vanderpump's spinoff show Vanderpump Rules in 2013, the plot centered on a group of friends who all met through working at Lisa's restaurant, SUR. The cast was coupled up with each other, and the line between work and play was more than blurred. 

Fast forward to seven years later, and most of the original cast has settled down — infamous player Jax Taylor wed Brittany Cartwright in June of 2019, Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney bought a house together, and Lala Kent and Stassi "It's My Birthday" Schroeder both got engaged to their respective fiancés. 

The new cast members on Vanderpump Rules will shake things up.

Now that the first Pump Rules cast has finally moved on from their partying days, it's no surprise that the show is adding young blood to the lineup for Season 8. While some faces from the past have finally been given full-time roles on the show, most of the additions are brand-new faces. These are the Vanderpump Rules new cast members

When Raquel first appeared on Vanderpump Rules in Season 5, she was just a college senior and beauty queen who happened to be dating DJ James Kennedy. When she touched down in West Hollywood, Raquel was soon dealing with the allegations that James was cheating on her — which included photo proof and stories from multiple SUR employees.

But, Raquel stood by her man and the two continued to date. After graduating, James and Raquel moved in together, and she even helped him with his sobriety struggles. When she planned a puppy shower (which was exactly as it sounds — a baby shower for a new dog), she solidified her place on the show. Finally, after multiple seasons of guest-starring, Raquel is officially part of the cast, and the staff at SUR.

Though James has certainly matured since his first season, we have a feeling that the drama between the pair is far from over. Especially since Raquel wants to be friends with the other women... who hate James.
