Lisa Vanderpump may be running three establishments in Beverly Hills, but she is getting close to her staff in the process. Vanderpump wants the best for her SUR staff members, including Stassi Schroeder, even though she quit the establishment last year. Stassi is back and she is trying to figure out what to do with her life. But she knows that she doesn't want to go back to work at SUR.
On yesterday's episode of Vanderpump Rules, Lisa Vanderpump had a photo shoot and she wanted Schroeder to be her stylist. Lisa thought she was giving her a great opportunity, as she could show off her styling skills and make some great contacts. However, Stassi saw it as her working for free for an entire day. Both women were expecting a "thank you" from one another at the end of the day.
According to a new Bravo report, Lisa Vanderpump had no idea that Schroeder was expecting to be thanked, given the opportunity she had been presented with.
"When I see Stassi's comments, I think "bloody hell what an ungrateful little brat." A lot of people would have jumped at the chance to style any sort of cover, but she just never sees anything like that. She always feels like she's doing somebody else a favor," Lisa Vanderpump reveals of her former worker.
Vanderpump genuinely felt that she was giving her former employee a great opportunity, since Stassi wanted to get involved with more styling. Lisa knew that she had a blog that she wanted to make into something more and styling her for a magazine cover would give her great exposure and some great contacts. Even though Schroeder may have been thankful at the end of the day, it didn't seem like it to Lisa.
It is possible that Stassi is playing the victim here a little, as she isn't friends with her former co-workers anymore.
"I totally understand where Stassi's coming from. Sometimes when your friends hurt you, you just want to disappear. But at some point you have to come back and you have to take charge of the situation," Lisa adds about her former employee, which might have been why she had given her the opportunity.
But Lisa Vanderpump's workers aren't exactly working hard on building careers for themselves. For one, Jax Taylor is all about causing trouble, and Tom Schwartz is just trying to get a job so he can be more financially stable, according to the Inquisitr.
What do you think of Lisa Vanderpump's comments regarding Stassi? Do you think they both should have said thanks to one another?
