The Cast of ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Hits Coachella In Style

Crowds are hitting annual music-fest Coachella by plane, train, and automobile. But the cast of Vanderpump Rules is journeying to the desert in private plane (and helicopter) style.

Coachella is an annual event for the cast. Most have been going for years, enjoying VIP access to the festival. Last year Bravo’s The Daily Dish reported that Stassi Schroeder got romantic during Coachella with boyfriend Beau Clark. Another year the gang hung out with model Gigi Hadid.

This year seems to be no different as the cast once again travels to see a weekend of music. Is everyone going and how are they traveling?

Anyone wearing ‘p.j’s’ on the ‘p.j.?’

Not surprising, some of the gang traveled via private jet (aka “p.j.”). Lala Kent and fiancé Randall Emmett often travel on a private plane and this time was no exception.

Jax Taylor tagged along on the jet and posted a few pics to his Twitter. In addition to Taylor, his fiancé, Brittany Cartwright, and Scheana Shay are part of the group. Kent and Emmett are also present too. Shay and Taylor clink cups and say “cheers” on the jet in Shay’s Instagram story.

Even though the gang doesn’t have too far to fly, they could drop plenty of cash. Chartering a private plane can cost anywhere from $2,900 to $160,000 depending on the plane, number of guests and distance you need to travel.

He took this route instead

James Kennedy is clearly on the outs with the cast. So instead of stewing about how many cast members are flying on the “p.j.” he chartered his own private flight. But instead of a jet, Kennedy and girlfriend Raquel Leviss are going by helicopter.

Both Kennedy and Leviss posted a number of photos outside, inside and in-flight on the chopper. “I can’t afford my lifestyle,” Leviss posted to Instagram. She also tagged boohooman, so perhaps the couple had a little help financing the trip.

Although it is unlikely that Kennedy is shelling out big bucks for the ride, private helicopter rentals can run anywhere from $165 to $600 per person. These are prices for a tour.

Who has yet to arrive (or maybe won’t be going)?

Stassi Schroeder is currently the studio recording her audiobook for “Next Level Basic.” She posted to her Instagram story and seems to be hard at work. However, boyfriend Beau Clark posted to his Instagram story that he “got tattoed” before going to Coachella. So the couple may be heading out soon (put some sunscreen on that new ink, Beau).

But what about Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix? The couple hasn’t said thus far if they are definitely going. However, they just purchased a pretty expensive crib, so they may be sitting this one out. Also, Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz just purchase a home as well.

SUR hostess Billie Lee posted that she was attending Coachella, but needs a ride home. Kristen Doute posted a few sweet videos of her pups this morning to her Instagram story.
