Did Lisa Vanderpump ensure a Stassi Schroeder explicit film would never see the light of day? Although the two women are currently feuding, a source claims it was Vanderpump who paid a substantial amount of money in order to keep her former employee’s film private.
On March 16, following reports of Schroeder’s film, a source told Rumorfix that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star paid “a lot of money” to the man who was reportedly in possession of the 20-minute film, which featured Schroeder playing with an adult toy.
“It was humiliating. It was passed around and everyone in the cast saw it.”
According to the source, Schroeder went to Lisa Vanderpump after being confronted with a possible leak, and asked her for help. From there, Vanderpump allegedly tracked down the man Schroeder had sent the clip to and paid him off.
Lisa Vanderpump also reportedly begged a gossip site not to run a story about Schroeder’s film.
As the Inquisitr reported, Schroeder’s tape was kept under wraps until she brought up the issue at the Vanderpump Rules reunion. After she reportedly suspected one of her co-stars was attempting to send the clip to media outlets, Schroeder confronted Scheana Marie, claiming she had enlisted Schroeder’s former friends to help get the tape, and release it online.
A report by TMZ revealed Andy Cohen was shocked at the news of the film, and immediately wanted to know more. Although fans of Vanderpump Rules will have to wait until tonight to discover exactly what she revealed, the source claimed she sent the video to a man, who may or may not have been her boyfriend, a couple of years ago.
Over the last few months, Lisa Vanderpump and Stassi Schroeder have been on the outs, with both parties dissing one another both in the press and on Vanderpump Rules.
During one of the latest episodes of Vanderpump Rules, Lisa Vanderpump reached out to Schroeder, inviting her to celebrate the anniversary of SUR with her and her other co-stars. Although Schroeder did attend the bash, she ultimately left early after seeing her ex-boyfriend, Jax Taylor.
Before her exit from the party, Lisa Vanderpump encouraged Schroeder against being a “baby,” and suggested she stay and face people, instead of running away.
For more Lisa Vanderpump, tune into the Vanderpump Rules reunion tonight at 8 p.m., and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
