Stassi Schroeder sent a message to her former on-screen nemesis, Kristen Doute, on Sunday, November 1, just one day before the Season 4 premiere of Vanderpump Rules. Although the two women used to be on the outs due to Doute’s inappropriate relationship with Jax Taylor, Stassi Schroeder’s former boyfriend, they have since made amends. During the upcoming installment of Vanderpump Rules, fans are sure to see their friendship play out.
On November 1, Doute tweeted a photo of herself in the hospital, telling Stassi Schroeder and Brian Carter, Doute’s rumored boyfriend, that she was bored and waiting for them to show up, presumably to the hospital, where she is having surgery due to an injury last month.

Stassi Schroeder and Doute were close friends when Vanderpump Rules began in 2011, but during the show’s second season, it was revealed that Doute had slept with Taylor. As a result, their relationship came to an abrupt end — with a smack to the face for Doute by Schroeder. While their friendship didn’t seem to have much hope for the future, Stassi Schroeder and Doute reconciled during Season 3, and since then, they have been fairly close.
After Season 3 of Vanderpump Rules wrapped, Stassi Schroeder announced, via her podcast, that she had quit the series after filming the reunion special. At the time, she claimed her relationships with her co-stars had diminished, and she preferred to focus on people who really mattered, as opposed to forcing relationships that wouldn’t normally be happening. When the Season 4 trailer was released and featured Stassi Schroeder’s return, fans were shocked.
Last month, following the trailer’s release, Stassi Schroeder spoke out, explaining why she decided to return to the Bravo reality series.
“It is so embarrassing. I was like, ‘No, I’m definitely not!’ And then it’s like, ‘Yup, here I am!'” she told Entertainment Tonight last month. “I took a break and I did some soul searching. There are actually some reasons I want to come back. You’ll see them on the show.”
During Season 4 of Vanderpump Rules, fans will get to see Stassi Schroeder meet with her former boss at SUR Lounge, Lisa Vanderpump. After Stassi Schroeder ditched the restaurant after Season 2, Vanderpump expressed her disappointment, and ever since, the two women have had a strained relationship. During Season 3, Stassi Schroeder met with Vanderpump, who encouraged her to give her former best friend, Katie Maloney, another chance at a relationship, but Stassi Schroeder declined, slamming the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star for attempting to control the cast.
“I think she was really, really hard on me. I’ve been doing my best to kind of just rectify the specific wrong things that I felt I had done, but I’m not willing to grovel by any means.”
As for Stassi Schroeder’s love life, the fashion blogger has been dating Sirius XM radio host Patrick Meagher for nearly two years.
“We have our ups and downs, and we’ve broken up and gotten back together. It’s not like everything is just perfect, but we’re happy, and we’re trying,” Stassi Schroeder explained.
However, while Stassi Schroeder is dating, a Meagher appearance during Season 4 isn’t a sure thing.
“He gets more and more comfortable with it every day. If there’s a season 5 — if I’m welcomed back — there’s a possibility,” Stassi Schroeder teased.
