Tom Schwartz shared a series of photos taken at the BravoCon fan convention in New York City in November on his Instagram page days ago in honor of tomorrow night’s premiere of Vanderpump Rules Season 8.
Several weeks after he and his co-stars attended the event alongside the members of numerous other Bravo reality shows, Schwartz posted a slideshow, which featured wife Katie Maloney, actor Jerry O’Connell, and co-stars Lala Kent, Kristen Doute, James Kennedy, Raquel Leviss, Jax Taylor, and Tom Sandoval. Many others — including Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Denise Richards, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga, and Real Housewives of New York City star Luann de Lesseps — were also seen in the photos.
He even posted a photo of his co-star Sandoval in drag posing alongside Bravo’s Andy Cohen.
“Some #fbf glory from [BravoCon 2019] #crossover edition,” Schwartz wrote in the caption of his post. “I didn’t go through and tag people and I’m sorry for that. Hype for [Vanderpump Rules] SEASON 8 has left the station! Full speed ahead to Tuesday January 7th. I missed you guys. Happy new year!”
In one of Schwartz’s posts, he was seen posing alongside Kent and her fiancé, movie producer Randall Emmett, who will be featured on Vanderpump Rules for the first time during Season 8, despite having been dating Kent since early 2016.
In addition to the Emmetts’ added role to the series, the eighth season will also see seven other full-time cast members, including Beau Clark and Raquel Leviss — both of whom were upgraded from their part-time roles — and Max Boyens, Dayna Kathan, Danica Dow, Brett Caprioni, and Charli Burnett.
During production on the upcoming eighth season of Vanderpump Rules, Schwartz and Maloney reportedly learned that their August 2016 in Northern California was not legitimate and proceeded to embark on a second wedding in Las Vegas. The ceremony was attended by the majority of their co-stars, including Lisa Vanderpump, who co-owns TomTom restaurant with her husband, Ken Todd, and Sandoval.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, Schwartz and Maloney had a wedding redo in Sin City in July of last year.
Around the same time, Vanderpump spoke to Us Weekly magazine about what fans should expect to see during Season 8.
“You see them advancing,” she told the magazine. “One step forward, two steps back. It’s a great season, as always it’s gonna be a long season because there’s a lot of content and complicated dynamics.”
