Bartender Tom Sandoval with Sophie Gayot

 

Season 2 of Bravo’s “Vanderpump Rules” started a few weeks ago. What a mess and drama so far! I had the feeling that Jax (Taylor) was not going to reconnect with Stassi (Schroeder) — I even told him so in person when dining at SUR Restaurant & Lounge where the show is filmed. But Tom (Sandoval) is in such a quagmire situation with Kristen (Doute); what happened there? Hopefully it is not because I took his baseball cap. Well, let us see what will happen when it airs tonight.

Did you see Stassi Schroeder’s birthday party turns sour and wet on Vanderpump Rules episode 4, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Lisa Vanderpump’s new TV show airing on Bravo? To make a long story short, Stassi had disinvited her now ex-boyfriend Jax Taylor, but he showed up. After rounds of insults and “I dare you to ruin my birthday like this,” drinks were thrown.

During the second episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Lisa Vanderpump’s new TV show “Vanderpump Rules”, we watched girlfriend/boyfriend Stassi Schroeder and Jax Taylor break up after a two-year relationship. The show is filmed at SUR Restaurant & Lounge, located in West Hollywood, CA. It follows the staff ruled by Lisa Vanderpump, co-owner of the restaurant with her husband Ken Todd and Nathalie & Guillermo Zapata.

 

I recently dined at SUR Restaurant & Lounge. As you can see Stassi (who is a server) posed with Jax (who is a bartender) with me. I can tell you that it did not end up in a cat fight. Are they back together? I don’t know more than you. Only way to find out: watch the next episodes airing on Mondays on Bravo.

Even though I fed SUR Restaurant & Lounge bartender Tom Sandoval with some Starlette Cake™ last night, I was not able to get one single world out of him of what is going to happen on the next episode of “Vanderpump Rules to air on Bravo on Monday. He is one of seven the cast members of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Lisa Vanderpump’s new TV show .

I insisted and told him that this cake, created by French restaurateur Michèle La Porta, was fat-free, sugar-free, flour-free, egg-free, and therefore had almost no calorie. Only answer Sandoval gave me: “Just watch the show.”

You, too, can now try the Starlette Cake™ at SUR Restaurant, in West Hollywood, as it has just been added onto the menu. A perfect sweet ending in Hollywood where everyone wants to stay slim, but still be able to enjoy delicious bites.
