Relationships are constantly shifting on Vanderpump Rules, but there’s one thing it seems like you can always count on — someone will cheat (allegedly, at least).
This year, we’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of the series, as the first episode of Vanderpump Rules aired back in 2013. That’s 10 years of SUR (on TV), 10 years of the Toms’ infamous bromance and, of course, 10 years of cheating scandals. Read on to reminisce on the VPR cast’s most shocking cheating allegations below.
S1: Scheana Marie is Eddie Cibrian’s mistress
Everyone knows the story by now, but if you don't, here's the rundown: Scheana "unknowingly" dated Eddie Cibrian while he was still married to RHOBH star Brandi Glanville, who at the time was pregnant with the couple's second son.
S1: Jax cheats on Stassi
By the end of the season Jax came clean to Stassi and admitted that he cheated on her. This admission was the start of a recurring trend we'd see on nearly every season of Vanderpump Rules.
S2: Tom Sandoval cheats on Kristen
This was the beginning of the end of Tom and Kristen's relationship, but it wasn't the last time Tom would be called out for cheating in season 2...
S2: Tom and Ariana hook up
We eventually learned at the season 2 reunion that Tom and Ariana did indeed kiss while he was still dating Kristen.
S2: Jax cheats on Stassi with Kristen
Jax showed Stassi his texts with Kristen where Kristen tried to cover up the story. When Stassi gave Kristen the chance to come clean, she memorably smacked Kristen in the face in a fit of rage.
S3: Tom Sandoval and Miami Girl
Kristen devised a plan where Miami Girl ambushed Tom and Ariana at SUR, but the couple laughed the whole thing off and sent her packing.
S3: Katie Maloney accused of cheating
Jax spread a rumour that Katie cheated on Tom, claiming that he was at a nightclub and saw Katie "motorboating the crotch region" of a gentleman who wasn't Tom.
S3: Kristen accuses Tom Schwartz of cheating on Katie
Kristen took Stassi to lunch to tell her that she "for sure" knows that Schwartz cheated on Katie with two different girls. Kristen said Tiffany (Jax's current "girlfriend") told her that Schwartz slept with one of her friends...
S3: Tom Schwartz comes clean about cheating on Katie
Schwartz then got a text saying that everyone knew the truth, and that's when he was forced to come clean to Katie about his drunken make out session. In season 6 we'll see a nearly identical scene play out between the two – but more on that later!
S3: Jax cheats on Tiffany
S3: Kristen cheats on James…maybe
S4: Something goes down between Jax and Lala
When Jax and Brittany were official, Lala was roped into the drama and was accused of hitting on a taken man. Lala insisted that Jax was was the aggressor, but Jax denied any accountability and put the blame on Lala. The truth eventually came out because, duh, everything was on camera.
S4: James and Lala hook up
Poor Lala was convinced James was single, but her part in the matter caused her to be branded Enemy No. 1 by The Witches of WeHo.
S4: James cheats on Kristen
James denied everything and called Kristen crazy, but in his confessional he admitted that he and his accomplice, Jenna, were "definitely boning." Classy.
S5: Brittany and Kristen hook up…maybe
While Brittany denied everything, Kristen didn't put in her usual effort into discrediting the claim...so who knows what really happened.
S5: James gets busted for cheating – twice!
The ensuing confrontation was classic Vanderpump, with flying drinks and slaps to the face galore.
S6: Jax cheats on Brittany with Faith
Faith Stowers, a former SUR waitress and one-time friend to most of the cast, told James that she slept with Jax and that she might be pregnant. The news spread though the party like wildfire and made for one of the most intense episodes in Vanderpump Rules history.
S6: Tom cheats on Katie…again
Some guys just never learn.
S6: Did Rob Parks-Valletta cheat on Scheana?
While we were still waiting to see how it unraveled, Rob and Scheana had already split IRL.
S6: James Kennedy and his BFF Logan
The two have had no problem showing that they are comfortable with each other, but their closeness has raised a few eyebrows. Two men being friendly is nothing to be shocked about, but it's the fact that it's James' girlfriend, Raquel, questioning them that has us wondering if there's anything deeper than a friendship here.
S6: Jax accuses James and Kristen of hooking up
Kristen handled the rumour in a very Kristen way: by freaking out and tossing a drink in James' face.
S7: James Kennedy cheats on Raquel at Coachella
S9: Lala reveals Randall cheated on her with ‘many’ people
She then went on to cite his peculiar behaviour around his cell phone, including “the constant phone use.”
“It was glued to him,” she adds. “He couldn’t even go into a massage without his phone on him. And he was very funny if I got anywhere near the phone. That should have been a huge red flag to me. And the constant being gone. He was never around. But I just figured, ‘Who would creep around with him?’”
S10: Raquel Leviss and Oliver Saunders
Since then, Samantha has said that Raquel “did nothing wrong.” An insider reportedly told Page Six that Leviss believed Oliver and Samantha had separated. “Oliver told Raquel he was separated and that they were in the process of getting a divorce,” the source claimed. “Raquel would have never pursued him if she had known that wasn’t the case at the time.”
S10: Lala Kent and James Kennedy
Kennedy later spoke about the situation in an interview with E! News. "Obviously, not a proud moment of mine," Kennedy said. "I'm not perfect — I'm not now and nor was I then in my early 20s — but I am 30 now and looking back not a move I would make nowadays and good life lesson."
