Jax Taylor Teases ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Season 4 Drama, Ariana Madix And Tom Sandoval Confirm Cast Member’s, Besides Stassi Schroeder’s, Exit

Things are already going down at SUR, at least when the Vanderpump Rules cast are there. On Thursday, one of the show’s stars, Jax Taylor, posted a tweet that made clear that viewers will see a lot of drama on the show’s fourth season.

Jax remarked that despite the fact that filming has only happened for a week, there has already been lots of conflict.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Jax’s boss and the show’s executive producer, Lisa Vanderpump, has also confirmed that Season 4 started off with a bang. She tweeted that the first day of filming was “pretty challenging.”

One person who isn’t taking part in the drama is Stassi Schroeder. After the end of Season 2 and prior to Season 3, she quit her job at SUR and moved to New York City to be with a new boyfriend, prompting many viewers to wonder if she would return for the fourth season. While she did return for Season 4, her scenes were much more limited than before since she no longer a SUR employee and wasn’t friends with most of the cast anymore.

In a recent episode of her podcast, Stassi confirmed that she is no longer part of the cast. According to her, she voluntarily left the show.

“The decision to leave the show was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make, and it’s been something that I have deliberated over for two entire years now. I was so proud of myself when I actually came to a point in my life where I felt confident enough, not just as a woman, but as a person, to be able to say that I’m going to walk away from a lot of financial security. I’m going to walk away from fame. I’m going to walk away from opportunities to do other things, all because I don’t want to be in a situation that doesn’t make me happy.”

A little more than a week ago, Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix spoke to PerezHilton.com about Stassi’s departure. Tom remarked that Stassi pretty much “walked off into the sunset,” to which Ariana added “sort of, with a boot in her a**.”

Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix also revealed during the interview that Stassi Schroeder, who dated Jax Taylor during the beginning of the show, isn’t the only person whom viewers won’t see on Season 4 of Vanderpump Rules. When asked about Vail Bloom, who had a few scenes in season 3, including a very awkward date with SUR manager Peter Madrigal, Tom remarked that she’s a “previous” cast member. Ariana confirmed Vail’s departure.

“Previous. Yeah, she’s not on our show.”
