Peter Madrigal would “definitely” return to “Vanderpump Rules” for another season if asked.
Following the firings of four of his co-stars, including Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni, Peter spoke to Page Six about his future with the Bravo reality series, admitting that when it comes to his time filming the reality show, production has defined his summers for the past several years.
As fans of the series well know, Peter has been working as the manager at SUR Restaurant, where the show is based, for several years and while he is not a part of the main cast, he’s been seen frequently on the show since it began airing in 2013.
After telling Page Six that he would “definitely come back” for a ninth season of the Bravo reality series if there is one, Peter said filming has been a major part of his life, especially when it comes to his role at SUR Restaurant.
“That’s kind of like defined my summer for the last 10 years, nine years. I’m like Peter from ‘Vanderpump Rules,’” Peter explained while promoting his Celebrity Slots app.
Although filming typically begins in May for new seasons, production has been on hold for the past several weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Peter, who has stayed on the outskirts of filming for the past eight seasons of “Vanderpump Rules,” he’s now willing to open his life up to the cameras a bit more. However, like many, Peter has been facing some dating hardships due to the ongoing quarantine in Los Angeles, which has made it nearly impossible to date.
“My dating life like before the quarantine was like this, up and down, left and right, you know? And now with the quarantine … it is dead,” he admitted.
While Peter’s birthday has been featured on many past seasons of “Vanderpump Rules,” it came and went this weekend with no cameras in sight.
“My birthday is always on TV … and now all of a sudden, I don’t even know what I’m doing for my birthday because it’s usually just like, ‘Okay, Peter, we’re going to have your birthday party here and this is where you have to go and have fun.’ I’m like, ‘Okay, cool,’” he explained to Page Six.
While there is not yet any official reopening date for SUR Restaurant, Peter hopes to see the venue open its doors at some point within the next month.
“I miss it! Are you kidding me? I enjoy it. It is a lot of fun. SUR is one of my favorite places in the world,” he explained.
The third installment of the three-part reunion special for “Vanderpump Rules” season eight, which the cast filmed virtually from their Los Angeles homes in May, airs tonight, Tuesday, June 16, at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
