As I’ve mentioned before, Stassi Schroeder was somewhat of a disappointment throughout season three of Vanderpump Rules. She avoided almost every group function and alienated herself from the entire cast. She was either hella boring or just treated everyone like sh*t – but not in a fun, season-one-Stassi-kind-of-way. In a boring, predictable way. Now, even Lisa Vanderpump is done with her. But last night, in part two of the Vanderpump Rules reunion, we got a little bit of info to help us understand her side of the story. Or, at least, why she hates Scheana Marie Shay so much.
So, how did Stassi go from being a part of Scheana’s wedding to this
Apparently, one of Stassi’s ex-boyfriends – not Jax, and not her current beau Patrick – has a video of Stassi. A sex sort of video – not sure on the details and I don’t want to know, thank you very much. It’s also not clear who the ex-boyfriend is. I wonder if it’s that idiot she briefly dated after Jax? Anyway, this jerk goes to SUR and shows it to everyone, because he is apparently an actual piece of human garbage. Even more, he asks for Scheana Marie’s contact at TMZ, so he can sell the video. Lovely guy, this one. Although Scheana (and the rest of the SUR crew) watch the video, none of them help this d-bag extraordinaire leak it online. Unfortunately, Stassi hears through the grapevine that Scheana actually is helping him connect with the tabloids.
Scheana clears things up in her blog:
A little over a year ago, an ex-boyfriend of Stassi’s showed me a video that she had sent him. I didn’t know what to think. I was shocked. The first thing that came to my mind was why would you send this type of video? Yes, I watched it, and I feel bad that me watching it hurt her, but when it was in front of my face, it was hard not to, and also I knew he was the type of person who would sell it to get back at her.
Although she and I weren’t friends at the time, I felt a sense of responsibility to help this not come out. Unfortunately, through the game of telephone, word got back to Stassi that I was the one helping try to sell it. This couldn’t be further from the truth. This guy asked me for my tabloid contacts, and I said hell no. You can’t do this. This could ruin her life. Please, please don’t. He promised me he wouldn’t. This whole situation died and went away, and I didn’t think it would ever be brought up again until Stassi herself brought it up at the reunion. I thought we had moved on from this. We’ve already spoken about it, but clearly she was still hurt in thinking I had some part in this coming out.
I personally think this is a case of miscommunication. If Scheana was out to get Stassi, we would’ve seen that video months ago. And I give major kudos to the entire cast as well, for never mentioning it on the show. As Lisa points out on Twitter, Stassi is the one who brings it up at the reunion. Even Jax, with his big-ass mouth, never once uses it against her. I guess they’re not actually the worst people on Earth after all? Huh.
