Vanderpump Rules drama is in full-force, and Lisa Vanderpump is disappointed in the way certain things have played out. Specifically, Vanderpump was upset to see her former employee, Stassi Schroeder, end her friendship with her longtime bestie, Katie Maloney.
In the latest Vanderpump Rules drama, Schroeder and Maloney sat down for lunch, where they both expressed their issues with on another. However, while they were likely hoping to settle their differences, they instead decided their friendship was no more.
In her January 20 blog for Bravo, Vanderpump spoke out about the end of their relationship.
“I was actually very proud of Katie to see her standing up for herself against Stassi.”
While most fans of the show have pegged Maloney as a push-over, she stood her ground during lunch with Schroeder, explaining that she has to do what’s best for her relationship with Tom Schwartz, not what’s best for Schroeder.
“I see Stassi as kind of gobsmacked for a moment. Stassi likes to control everything, and she’s full of it, but then when somebody comes back to her and they really nail her, she doesn’t like it and she kind of backs off. But there’s some truth there, and I think Stassi would be wise listening. I want Katie and Stassi to be friends, but I don’t want Katie to have to bow down to Stassi. What she’s really saying is ‘I thought I indoctrinated you, and now I’m upset because you’ve got a mind of your own.’ That’s the truth of the matter.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Schroeder also weighed in on her and Maloney’s Vanderpump Rules drama in her blog for Bravo.
“I really appreciate just how honest Kristina was with Katie, and she doesn’t sugarcoat anything, but Katie and I have been best friends for a while, and just because I say things in the heat of the moment, it doesn’t mean that I ultimately don’t want things to work out.”
Schroeder also spoke of her and Maloney’s “goodbye” lunch.
“It’s really hard to watch that. It really makes me sad. I don’t understand where Katie’s anger comes from, because I feel like I was the one on the defensive. Like I didn’t do anything. I sat back, and she decided to change her mind about things and not tell me and embarrass me by not telling me, and what was I supposed to do? I think that both of us knew that at that point our friendship was over.”
For more Vanderpump Rules drama, tune into season three every Monday night at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
