In our exclusive interview, Vanderpump Rules‘ Stassi Schroeder teases the craziness to come in Season 3 and answers all those wild rumors.
If you’re like us, chances are you can’t wait for Monday and the return of Bravo’s sexy reality show.
SheKnows got the chance to speak exclusively with Schroder about how her life has changed since being on the show. “How has it not changed, is more of the question,” she said, adding that everything is different for her now that she is no longer at the restaurant. She’s not hanging out with the old gang anymore and she went through other big changes, such as moving to New York and then moving back to Los Angeles.
“I miss New York,” Schroeder said about the move. “If you could take the space that you get in LA apartments and put it in New York, I would be in New York.”
Schroeder said that she and her boyfriend Patrick got to know each other very well when they lived in a 300-square-foot apartment in New York. The space was so small that her clothes inevitably ended up on the floor because there was nowhere to put them.
After discussing real estate, Schroeder addressed some of the crazy rumors that have been going around about her. First and foremost, she talked about the baby rumors.
“I’m not pregnant,” Schroeder said. “I might have gained a little weight, so it looks like I’m just a little fuller. But I’m just happy and healthy right now.”
As for why she didn’t attend the Vanderpump Rules premiere party, Schroeder said it wasn’t due to any sort of big conspiracy, it was simply a scheduling conflict. Her best friend’s birthday was that same weekend, and she chose to be a good friend and go to her BFF’s party, she said.
How about those rumors about Schroeder getting her own spin-off show? Unfortunately, she couldn’t comment on that, which hopefully means good news.
Despite the fact that she’s no longer really a part of the gang, Schroeder said that she and the other cast members get along fine. “I’m cordial when I see them,” she shared.
However, they aren’t exactly best buds, either. “I’m not going to call any of them up and say, ‘Hey, let’s hang out,'” she added.
As for her relationship with Lisa and Pandora, Schroeder said, “I’ve never fought with them, you know what I mean? It’s just they are part of that circle.”
Schroeder added that she wanted to “take a step back and really try and get healthy.” But, she said, it was hard because “if you’re friends with one of them, it’s kind of like you’re in with all of them.” Schroeder has been working on trying to distance herself from that environment.
When asked about Season 3, Schroeder said fans should expect lots of fireworks. “I hear there is a lot of explosive drama,” she said, adding that she heard the season included more cheating rumors, lying, relationships changing and much more.
“[It’s] kind of like Season 1 and 2 on crack,” she said.
Schroeder also spoke about her jewelry line and when it will be available for preorder in November. The brand is Stassi x Shop Prima donna, and her first collection is called Elements. All of the pieces are under $40, and preorder begins Nov. 12 with official launch/ship on Dec. 3.
