‘Vanderpump Rules’ star gets compared to Tucker Carlson and we can’t stop laughing
Two of television’s most vilified men got a roast Saturday night during the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington, DC.
Tucker Carlson earned a apt comparison to Vanderpump Rules’ Lothario Tom Sandoval during host Roy Wood Jr.’s remarks at the annual event.
Wood poked around at Carlson’s recent downfall from Fox News, saying, “The untouchable Tucker Carlson is unemployed, but for Tucker’s staff, I want you to know that I know how you feel.”
“I work at The Daily Show, so I too was caught unawares by the sudden departure of a fake news show host,” the comedian said of former Daily Show host Trevor Noah.
Wood didn’t let Carlson down. “Tucker was caught. Got caught like that guy from Vanderpump Rules,” he said.
Carlson’s raunchy lyrics about Fox colleagues reportedly prompted his exit from the network.
Sandoval’s now-infamous affair, known to reality followers as “Scandoval,” came to light after his ex, Ariana Madix, discovered lurid texts with co-star Raquel Leviss.
Madix was all about the joke as she dropped her jaw and stifled a laugh while seated alongside Bravo doyenne Lisa Vanderpump and co-star Lala Kent.
“I don’t know what ‘Vanderpump Rules’ is about,” Wood went on. “I’ve only watched it a few times, but my friends tell me it’s like ‘BMF’ for white people.”
Madix, Vanderpump and Kent attended the dinner on behalf of the Daily Mail.
Expressing your admiration for the policy, Madix told the outlet“My wonderful late grandmother was very active in local politics and I always dreamed of visiting the White House so this is an amazing honor.”
