Meanwhile, ahead of the show’s season eight premiere, a recent report claims that Max, the TomTom manager, has become a point of contention amongst the cast, which includes a number of new members. This is due to his many hookups with his fellow Lisa Vanderpump employees.

“[Max] hooks up with multiple women who are employees at Lisa Vanderpump’s various restaurants and it causes a lot of tension amongst the cast,” a source close to production told Hollywood Life on September 30.

According to the report, the returning members of the cast will be joined by Max, Dayna, and three other male cast members, all of whom are named Brett (Brett Willis and Brett Caprioni appear to be two of them). One of those Bretts reportedly creates more drama than the rest.

“The new cast members who come in really shake things up for the existing ones. You’ll also see new members from several of Lisa’s restaurants, including TomTom, SUR and Pump,” the source said.

“The season will focus heavily on the new cast members coming in and causing drama. [Jax Taylor] especially fights with several of them,” the insider added.

During an interview with Hollywood Life last month, Jax suggested he wasn’t thrilled with the new additions.

“I’ve only hung out with one of them; the other ones are extremely young, very naive to the whole situation,” he explained. “To me, some of them seem a little thirsty.”

“We don’t really allow new people to come in, just because we have such a history of all of us,” he continued. “And we have a lot of just…we’re very close and we just don’t like people kind of breaking in to our circle, because we just don’t know what their intentions are. It’s nothing personal against these people, it’s just, we like our group the way it is.”

Vanderpump Rules season eight will air on Bravo TV sometime later this year.
