In May Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder announced that she was leaving the Bravo show for good — In fact Stassi has blasted her co-stars for not growing up and moving on from SUR countless times so it’s pretty interesting that she is BACK on season 4 after insisting she was out for good.
On the October 15 episode of her podcast, Straight Up With Stassi the Bravo admitted that she was embarrassed by her decision to return after announcing she was leaving, but claimed that fans would better understand her decision to return once the series begins to air.
“I made a huge public display of saying I’m done with it and all I have to say is I make mistakes… It’s embarrassing that I gave this whole speech about how I will never come back and then I realized that there were reasons that I wanted to because I made a mistake and I think I’m one of the most prideful people that I know and swallowing that pride when I did come back was so hard.”
But really did her ex boyfriend Mr. Jax Taylor spill the beans on what really happened?
On July 22, he tweeted:
“Your boyfriend broke up with you, you’re broke, and you have no friends and now you want to crawl back on our show?? You are sad.”
And then a week later he said:
“Just when I thought that podcast couldn’t be anymore pathetic…wow.”
It did appear that her and boyfriend Patrick Meagher had broken up since Stassi was couch surfing at the time with Kristen Doute, and it’s hard to imagine that anything less than a major life catastrophe could change her mind–especially since she was no longer friends with any cast-mates (except Katie Maloney) after they watched her solo sex tape performance.
We know that her and producer Lisa Vanderpump have been on the outs for some time, but at the end of the day Lisa is a business woman and she knows Stassi is reality gold.
This season Lisa and Stassi will have a serious sit-down and Lisa will express her true feelings to her ex employee and spoiler alert, it’s not going to be that sweet.
At any rate regardless of the reasons that Stassi is returning viewers lucked out.
The season 4 cast includes ex boyfriend Jax Taylor, frenemy, Scheana Marie, Kristen Doute, Tom Sandoval, Tom Schwartz, Katie Maloney, James Kennedy, and Mike Shay and new comer Lala Kent.
Vanderpump Rules Season 4, premieres on Bravo on Monday, November 2, at 9 p.m.
