PHOTOS: Vanderpump Rules Season 11 Begins Filming With Schwartz and James at TomTom and Ariana and Katie Shopping for Their Sandwich Shop

The Vanderpump Rules cast has officially gone into production on season 11.

As Raquel Leviss‘ role on the show reportedly remains up in the air following her devastating affair with Tom Sandoval, the now-ex-boyfriend of her best friend, Ariana Madix, Tom Schwartz and James Kennedy joined Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd at TomTom as Ariana reunited with Katie Maloney for a shopping outing in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

According to a June 29 report from TMZ, Ariana and Katie were spotted filming scenes for the new episodes at the BTS Thrift Store, where they picked up a number of items, including fine china and glassware, for their new sandwich shop, Something About Her, over the course of three to four hours.

Although an exact opening date for the new venue has not yet been revealed, Something About Her is expected to be a big part of Ariana and Katie’s storyline. And with its location in West Hollywood, just a short walk away from TomTom, which Schwartz, Lisa, and Ken share with Sandoval, production will have an easy time commuting from place to place.

After Ariana and Katie filmed their shopping scene, cameras were spotted at TomTom, where Schwartz, Lisa, Ken, and James were seen with Lisa and Ken’s son, Max Vanderpump.

“Was at TomTom last night. Spotted Schwartz, LVP, Ken, Max, and DJ James Kennedy filming. New season has officially started,” read a message sent to Best of Bravo on Instagram, along with a photo of Schwartz and Lisa sitting together at a booth.

In another photo, shared by Bravo and Cocktails on Instagram, Lisa was seen with James.

“Schwartz, Ken, Lisa and James all at [TomTom] filming,” the outlet told their fans and followers.

Bravo and Cocktails also posted a photo on their Instagram Story of Schwartz with James taken at what appears to be a separate venue, with Schwartz wearing a different-colored shirt.

“Schwartz brought James a plant as a peace offering. Maybe for his new home?” a message sent to them asked.
