The ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Cast Enjoys A ‘Ladies Night’ Out Ahead Of The Season 5 Premiere
The ladies of Vanderpump Rules have had a very busy month. In addition to the preparations for Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s wedding, which took place last Wednesday, they have been filming for the series’ upcoming fifth season.
Over the weekend, the girls appeared to take a break from their hectic schedules when they embarked on a ladies night.
“Ya this is ladies night,” Scheana Marie Shay captioned an August 22 photo of the group, which included Rachael O’Brien, Kristen Doute, Stassi Schroeder, and Katie Maloney.

Following the posting of Shay’s photos, numerous fans wanted to know where Ariana Madix was. In response, Shay shot down rumors of a potential beef between Madix and her Vanderpump Rules co-stars by telling a fan that she simply wanted to have dinner elsewhere and confirmed they met up later that night.
As fans will recall from the fourth season of Vanderpump Rules, Shay and Madix had a falling out during filming last year. After Madix learned that Shay had engaged in a conversation with her mother about her relationship with Tom Sandoval and the alleged negative impact it had on Madix’s personality, the women came to blows and ultimately, they chose to temporarily distance themselves from one another.
Maloney also chose to distance herself from Madix and because Madix was never close with Schroeder or Doute, many wondered if she would be included in the fifth season of Vanderpump Rules. Although the official cast of Season 5 has not yet been revealed, Shay and Madix are now on good terms, and throughout filming, Madix has been frequently seen with her co-stars. She’s also still dating boyfriend Sandoval and working at SUR Restaurant, which seems to be a big hint that she will remain on the show.

Earlier this year, the fifth season of Vanderpump Rules was confirmed by Bravo TV, along with the announcement of several other returning series, including its mother show, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. However, thus far, the network has not revealed a premiere date for the upcoming season. That said, there are a couple of clues as to when it will possibly air.
Weeks ago, Shay spoke to a fan who asked about the potential premiere date of Vanderpump Rules Season 5 and suggested the first episode may air sometime in November. According to the reality star, nothing was set in stone, but if history repeats itself, Season 5 will kick off at the end of the year.
Although Vanderpump Rules Season 1 premiered in January of 2013 following a crossover episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which featured a conversation between Shay and Brandi Glanville, the following three seasons all premiered in early November.
Madix also dished on a possible November premiere for Vanderpump Rules Season 5.
In May of this year, around the time production was suspected of starting, Madix was confronted with a fan who asked, “I’m having serious [Vanderpump Rules] withdrawals. When is the next season coming back on?”
In response, Madix told the woman, “I’m guessing [because] I don’t have any real info right now, but the previous seasons have all premiered early November.”
During Vanderpump Rules Season 5, fans will be watching as Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz prepare to get married and then tied the knot on the show with their co-stars at their side. Meanwhile, Kristen Doute debuts her new relationship with Brian Carter and Stassi Schroeder parts ways with her longtime boyfriend, Patrick Meagher.
