‘Vanderpump Rules’ Episode Guide (Jan. 29): A Rumor About James and His Friend Surfaces

“Best Mates” (01/29/18) – Kristen tests Jax’s patience when she flies out Brittany’s mom for a visit, especially when it turns out that she has another surprise up her sleeve. Lala finds her inner feminist and schemes to repair Scheana and Katie’s friendship.

Meanwhile, Lisa rewards Peter for years of loyal service. And later, a salacious rumor about James and his best friend makes the rounds at SUR.

This season, Lisa forges ahead with her plan to add another restaurant to her growing empire but when her new partners Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz show their inexperience, the veteran restaurateur butts heads with them every step of the way.

Newly single and nearly divorced, Scheana finds herself at the center of the SUR gossip when rumors about her new relationship begin to swirl. Ariana and Tom face one of the biggest fights of their relationship, as Tom’s loyal dedication to his friends makes Ariana feel like an afterthought. When Lala convinces Lisa to give her one last chance at SUR, the former outcast finds herself in an unlikely new role of peacekeeper, which complicates her friendship with James as he deals with a shocking rumor about his sex-life.

Stassi tries to salvage her four-year relationship with Patrick, while Kristen devotes her energy to breaking up Jax and Brittany rather than focusing on her own relationship. Jax finds himself faced with a shocking accusation that could risk losing the best relationship he’s ever had. Brittany wonders whether or not to stand by her man and the SUR gang is torn down the middle as they must decide where their loyalties lie.

“Vanderpump Rules” is produced by Evolution Media with Douglas Ross, Alex Baskin, Bill Langworthy, Lisa Vanderpump, and Ken Todd serving as Executive Producers. Robert Carroll, Joe Kingsley, Audrey Olsen and Jeremiah Smith serve as Co-Executive Producers.
