How anyone could ever leave SUR is beyond us, but it has been done, and these former cast members are proof there is life after Vanderpump Rules.
Vail Bloom, a 2004 graduate of Princeton University, worked as a hostess at Lisa Vanderpump's famed restaurant and appeared in the show's third season. She'd earned a Daytime Emmy nod for her role on The Young and the Restless prior to Pump, and per Bravo, she's still acting and recently appeared in a film called Too Late. For a brief time in 2015, Bloom was romantically linked to Chris Pine.
Not a bad post-Pump run, if we do say so ourselves!
Then there's Laura-Leigh, the Juilliard grad who worked as a server at SUR during the first season of Pump Rules. She left the show after landing a role in We're the Millers. She's continued to act since then and had a recurring role on The Client List seasons one and two.
As for Frank Herlihy, who worked as a bartender at SUR during Pump Rules season one? Well, after getting the boot from Mrs. Vanderpump herself, Herlihy parted ways with reality TV stardom and returned to life as usual off-camera. He regularly posts to social media these days and appears to live and work in the Santa Monica, Calif., area.
We've seen a few of Jax Taylor's ex-girlfriends come and go, too. Tiffany Matthews, who dated the Pump Rules star before he rekindled his romance with model Carmen Dickman, told Radar Online she had no ill will towards Taylor. "Jax and I have always been close friends," Matthews, an Event Manager for the Hyde Belagio, told the site in 2014. "Jax and I still care about each other a lot, but the timing just wasn't ever right. I want the best for him."
There are some members of the Pump Rules family, like Pandora and Todd, that we see more or less of depending on the season. Then there are others, like Stassi Schroeder, who keep coming back to SUR.
We can't say we blame her!
Watch the season five premiere of Vanderpump Rules tonight at 9/8c on Bravo.
