Vanderpump Rules cast


Just raise your glasses high, this one's for you this morning. 

Rejoice, Vanderpump Rules fans, as Lisa Vanderpump's crew of current and former SURvers will finally be back for a fifth season of wedding struggles, a lot of tears and, yes, even fried goat cheese balls. E! News can exclusively reveal that Vanderpump Rules will return on Monday, Nov. 7, at 9 p.m., and we also have the first trailer for season five, which teases that a war is brewing at SUR. And while it won't be pretty, it definitely will be fun to watch.

In the epic teaser above, we get to see the gang head to New Orleans for Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney's joint bachelor and bachelorette party, which may end up being more of a disaster than a celebration judging from what we see of it in the footage. Katie claims Tom's "d--k doesn't work," and Tom later saying, "I'm not marrying her." 

 Say whaaa?! (Thankfully, we all know they make it to the altar and swap vows, despite the very ominous music and words from officiant Lisa Vanderpump.)

Stirring up trouble in the promo are troublemakers James Kennedy, who calls the entire group "f--king losers," and Lala Kent, who is seen defending herself after Kristen Doute accuses her of sleeping with a married man. Complicating matters even more is the fact that Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix will find themselves torn between their two friend groups, as they try to maintain their friendships with James and Lala, while Katie is busy calling the latter "a whore." 


And while the original group came together at the end of season four, with the champagne queen finally Stassi Schroeder being welcomed back into the fold, it looks like Scheana Shay might find herself on the outs this season, with Katie accusing her of being "fake" and Stassi yelling that Scheana doesn't "give a f--k about anyone other" than herself. 

Other quick teases we delightfully took note of? Sandoval rocking a dress and wig, a Tom-on-Tom kiss (our favorite kind of Pump Rules kiss), and the best line from Lisa to James, "You're turning into an a--hole before my very eyes." His response? "I don't appreciate that." 

Oh, and guess who's joining the staff at SUR in this season? Jax's sweet Southern sweetheart Brittany Cartwright (Can you believe Lisa poached her from Hooters?!), but her official debut at the restaurant won't be without its drama, as Jax does what any normal boyfriend would do and decides to spread a scandalous rumor about her that threatens their relationship. We also get to see a glimpse into their troubles at home, with Jax telling Brittany, "I don't think things are going well for us anymore." 

Vanderpump Rules season five premieres Monday, Nov. 7 at 9 p.m. on Bravo. 

 (E! and Bravo are both members of the NBCUniversal family.)
