One day we watched “Vanderpump Rules” because it was the only thing playing on the TVs in the break room.

Since that moment, we were TRANSFIXED.

“Vanderpump Rules” follows the lives and drama of a bunch of servers and bartenders at "Real Housewife" Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant SUR. “Vanderpump Rules” has all the makings (i.e. spinoff, reality, Bravo, etc.) of a garbage excuse for a TV show, yet somehow it’s the greatest reality show that has EVER EXISTED.

The drama on “Vanderpump Rules” is definitely real.


They’ve got bitch slaps.


And drink tosses.


They’ve got one-liners.


They’ve got honesty.


They’ve got whatever THIS is.


and THIS.


But at the end of the day, all other shows need to realize that they will never ever be serving up the realness that they do on “Vanderpump Rules.”
