Ahead of the new season, Stassi Schroeder, who is one of the show's original cast members, paid a visit to Access Hollywood, where she opened up about her new co-star. She described the TomTom employee as "hysterical."
"I really like Dayna," Schroeder confirmed. "She is [a comedian]. She's just, like, very real and raw. And she has this cynical, dark sense of humor and way of looking at things that I think is really amusing. So, I think she's really entertaining to have fun with and hang out with."
In a sneak peek of the new season, Kathan was seen at TomTom, her workplace. TomTom is a restaurant which is owned by Lisa Vanderpump, Ken Todd, Tom Sandoval, and Tom Schwartz. In the preview clip, Kathan admitted to hooking up with fellow new cast member, Max Boyens, who works as a manager at the restaurant.
In the same footage, however, Boyens is seen recalling that night out to Sandoval. Boyens seemed to suggest that after hanging out with the cast as a group, he simply went home. At another point in the sneak peek, Kathan was seen lying in bed beside Boyens and discussing what was going on between them. It seems viewers will see plenty of Boyens and Kathan together in the upcoming season.As The Inquisitr previously reported, Schwartz was also seen in the Vanderpump Rules sneak peek that was posted to BravoTV, applauding his staff at TomTom and crediting the men and women working there, including Kathan, for the ongoing success of the restaurant.
"The reason TomTom runs so smoothly is because we've hired the best staff on the planet. We've got Dayna who's this great worker, so good in fact that Lisa is poaching her to work at SUR… and then there's Max. He's the glue that holds it all together," Schwartz explained.
While Schwartz suggested that Vanderpump had been hoping to enlist Kathan to begin working at SUR Restaurant at the time Season 8 was filmed last year, it wasn't revealed whether or not she actually made the transition, or if she simply began juggling her time between both West Hollywood venues.
Vanderpump Rules Season 8 will also feature new cast members Charli Burnett, Danica Dow, and Brett Caprioni, all of whom appear to work at SUR Restaurant.
