Stassi Schroeder may have the perfect blonde hair, beautiful big blue eyes, and a confident personality, but she admits that everything fans see on the show is not reality. In fact, Stassi herself is dealing with some major health issues, and she wants people to know that she also wears spanx on occasion, and she is unhappy with her body. Just a few months ago, Schroeder had a breast reduction surgery, and now, she’s sharing some more news. According to a new Bravo report, Stassi Schroeder is now coming clean about her struggle with psoriasis, and she has a personal reason as to why she needs to share the news.
“Because I know if I go on another girl’s blog or if I’m looking at her Instagram — I stalk tons of female celebrities, too — I don’t like feeling bad about myself. I don’t like when people pretend everything’s perfect, it’s not,” Stassi told the Daily Dish, adding, “We all need to come down to the same level and teach each other and learn from each other on how to fix those things that we don’t like about ourselves. It makes people happy.”
Even though Schroeder left Vanderpump Rules a few years back, she’s returning this season with a vengeance. She’s bonding with Kristen Doute and she seems to be picking up the pieces with fellow co-stars again. But Stassi has been doing plenty of work outside of Vanderpump Rules, including running her own blog, Style By Stassi, and her podcast, Straight Up With Stassi. And there’s a reason why she enjoys her work so much.

“I’m really into interconnecting with women on the level like that and that’s why I love my podcast because there’s nothing better than having a female tribe, a group of great girlfriends,” Stassi Schroeder revealed, adding, “And I don’t like when women feel insecure, and I don’t want them to ever look at me and feel that way so that’s why if I need to talk about my psoriasis or the fact that I’m wearing pairs of spanx, fine.”
Stassi Schroeder has come back on Vanderpump Rules, but she isn’t back to win over Jax Taylor. These two dated for years, but broke up when he admitted to cheating on her. These days, she’s not as understanding as some of her co-stars when it comes to Jax’s behavior, including his recent arrest in Hawaii. She recently sat down with Andy Cohen, who asked her about the arrest.
“I feel like I was just watching Making a Murder, you know what I mean?” Stassi replied to Andy Cohen, who asked her about Jax Taylor’s arrest on Watch What Happens Live earlier this week, according to She Knows.
And it sounds like people had many opinions about Schroeder, and her comments about her ex-boyfriend. Many felt that she was the last person who should be talking badly about people.

“For the 1st time, I actually feel like he was being genuine. Shut up Stassi….. You could use some growth yourself…..,” Lisa Seay Stauder revealed, according to She Knows, while another person wrote, “I think Jax is so insecure that he finds the need to try to screw things up when it’s going good for him and as for Stassi WTFC (WHO THE F’ CARES) about what she has to say… they never should of brought her rotten, nasty ass back at all…”
“Stassi thrives on the demise of people. She gets a complete rush when she’s in the presents [sic] of someone and they are dishing out insults. She phenes [sic] for negative feedback. She would enjoy sitting in a room and everybody saying what they hate about each other. It gets her high to watch people suffer,” a third person wrote, according to the publication.
What do you think of Stassi Schroeder sharing her health issues? Do you think it’s another ploy to get back in the spotlight?
