Will Vanderpump Rules Season 4 include Stassi Schroeder? Although the cast of the upcoming installment of the Bravo reality show has yet to be announced, rumors have continued to swirl regarding the possibility of Schroeder leaving the show.
As the Inquisitr reported weeks ago, Schroeder recently claimed Bravo edited her to be a “mean” girl on the show, and seemingly confirmed she would not be returning for Vanderpump Rules Season 4.
In an January 8 interview with In Touch Weekly, Schroeder said the following.
“There are so many things I’ve said as a joke, but they don’t show me laughing after. I have no control over what’s shown! We’re putting ourselves out there to be judged.”
While Schroeder admitted she has “always been an aggressive person,” she said she does her best to “treat people kindly.”
Also in the interview, Schroeder revealed she did not want to do any more reality TV.
“I don’t want to do reality TV again. It’s just not where my head’s at anymore! I’m happiest these days just being at home with (my boyfriend) Patrick.”
While Schroeder appears clear in her decision, she has failed to come right out and announce her exit from the series. She has, however, opened up about a few other things pertaining to the show.
In a January 20 Q&A, Schroeder answered several questions from fans.
“I’m going to be honest; the whole process of filming a reality show really does wear on me at times. You get confused between what is reality and what is not. My occupation right now is to fight with others and constantly try to stay one step ahead of everyone else. That’s stressful and it messes with my mind at times.”
When asked why she returned to the series for Season 3 after telling press she was done with the show a short time prior, Schroeder claimed she had a civic duty.
“I wanted to show the viewers where my head was at now. I also want to be someone who encourages strength in people. I want people to feel motivated to stand up for themselves, to not take anyone’s mistreatment, and to choose your circle wisely.”
Although Schroeder didn’t have the easiest year on the show, she has been happy, namely because of her boyfriend, Patrick Meagher.
“We just adopted a new puppy together, so it’s been an exciting couple of months for our little family. Honestly, Patrick is not a Vanderpump Rules type of guy, if you know what I mean. He’s a man, the complete definition of a man. He has more integrity than anyone I have ever met. And I truly believe he is just too kind for this sort of thing. He has a wonderful career, and we have a very normal easy life together.”
If Schroeder does leave the show ahead of Vanderpump Rules Season 4, one person who won’t miss her is Lisa Vanderpump. Speaking to Perez Hilton, Vanderpump explained that Schroeder’s behavior on the show wasn’t something she enjoyed.
“A lot of nasty, negative things said about everybody else, including me, which I think is a shame really, at this point, because I think at SUR, they were like family, and I think we gave her some great opportunities. It’s a shame, but I guess people learn from their own mistakes.”
Vanderpump Rules Season 4 has yet to be confirmed by Bravo.
