Plot Synopsis

VANDERPUMP RULES is a reality series that follows the staff at Lisa Vanderpump's West Hollywood mainstay SUR (Sexy, Unique Restaurant), which has been the backdrop for many memorable moments on THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS. SUR was the restaurant where Brandi Glanville and Scheana Marie, a female server who famously had an affair with Brandi's ex-husband, had their unexpected encounter. In this series, REAL HOUSEWIFE Lisa balances her motherly instincts and shrewd business sense, as she tries to keep control over her wild group of employees pursuing their dreams -- and each other. The staff at SUR includes: Scheana, the new girl at SUR, who is constantly faced with proving that she is not the same naive girl who fell for the man married to Lisa's close friend Brandi; Stassi, a server at SUR while pursuing her modeling career, who moved in with her boyfriend two years ago -- and the two have been fighting passionately and making up even more passionately ever since; Jax, a bartender at SUR, who enjoys the freedom, easy money and carefree lifestyle he has found in Hollywood but who often fights with girlfriend Stassi over his immature actions and inability to move their relationship to the next level; Kristen, the senior member of the SUR staff, who, after being a child actor and model, loves working side-by-side with her best friends Stassi and Katie, and her boyfriend of four years, Tom Sandoval; Tom, a bartender at SUR, who works there to make ends meet as he chases his dreams working in modeling, acting and playing guitar in a band; and Katie, a nice girl from Utah, who is finding that SUR has become her full-time job and the center of her social life, especially after she started dating one of Kristen's friends. On the night of the series premiere, Monday, January 7, 2013, Bravo aired a special two-hour episode of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS from 9-11pm ET/PT to introduced the series, which had its official debut at 11:30pm ET/PT the same night. On Monday, November 4, 2013 from 8-10pm ET/PT, Bravo presented the Season 2 premiere of VANDERMPUMP RULES as part of a two-hour crossover event with the Season 4 premiere of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS. In the first hour, RHoBH's Kyle Richards hired SUR to cater a cocktail party for the Chamber of Commerce, as she celebrated Beverly Hills' centennial at her home. At the party, Lisa struggled to keep tensions down between Brandi Glanville and Scheana. After the party wrapped up, SUR staffers Stassi, Jax, Katie, Tom and Scheana headed out to meet up with Kristen when serious tensions flared up. In an effort to mend her relationship with the group, Scheana invited everyone to her birthday party, but it didn't take long for catfights to erupt. VANDERPUMP RULES returned for its third season on Monday, November 3, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on Bravo. Lisa Vanderpump is once again flanked by SUR staffers Jax Taylor, Katie Maloney, Kristen Doute, Scheana Marie, Tom Sandoval and former server Stassi Schroeder, along with Ariana Madix and Tom Schwartz. Lisa is looking to expand her empire with the opening of PUMP, a swanky lounge in the heart West Hollywood, but she has to work harder than ever to ensure that both PUMP and SUR succeed. While Lisa has been putting the finishing touches on her new hot spot, her current and former SUR staffers continue to lead entangled lives. The last anyone heard, Stassi found a new boyfriend, quit her job at SUR and moved to New York City to pursue a career in fashion, but now she has followed her boyfriend back to Los Angeles and is disgusted to discover that nothing has changed with her former friends and co-workers. In the season ender, SUR's annual photo shoot turns tense as Tom Sandoval confronts Jax for stabbing him in the back. Katie forces Tom Schwartz to take action in their relationship, while Tom Sandoval and Ariana take their own relationship to a whole new level. While Stassi accepts Lisa's invitation to the restaurant's anniversary party, she finds returning to SUR more tense than nostalgic
