Stassi Schroeder is headed for yet another tough episode of Vanderpump Rules Season 4. After returning to the Bravo reality show last week, the fashion blogger and podcast host spoke of hardships with boyfriend Patrick Meagher, drama with Katie Maloney, and her infamous sex tape, and now, during the show’s upcoming episode, she will once again open up about her struggles.
“Every time I feel like I’m hitting rock bottom, it’s like, ‘No, sh*t can always get worse,'” Stassi Schroeder tells Kristen Doute in a sneak peek at the February 1 episode of Vanderpump Rules.

Although fans don’t get to see the rest of Stassi Schroeder’s conversation with Doute, it is likely that Stassi Schroeder was either referring to her boyfriend, or to her former boss, Lisa Vanderpump, whom she meets with during the next scene.
“You hate me, Lisa!” Stassi Schroeder tells her former boss.
However, Vanderpump doesn’t agree, and tells her former waitress, “You aren’t important enough to hate. Sit down.”
While Stassi Schroeder and Vanderpump used to have a good relationship (Vanderpump offered Stassi Schroeder an opportunity to work behind the scenes on one of her fashion cover shoots), they had a falling out after Stassi Schroeder quit the restaurant after Season 2, and began trashing Vanderpump and her co-stars in the press. Then, during Vanderpump Rules Season 3, Stassi Schroeder attempted to smooth things over with Vanderpump, but unfortunately, they ended up feuding further after Stassi Schroeder’s friendship with Katie Maloney was brought up.
A few weeks before Stassi Schroeder’s meeting with Vanderpump, she cut all ties with Maloney after learning Maloney had traveled to Miami with Scheana Marie, whom Stassi Schroeder claims showed her sex tape around the restaurant. While Scheana Marie has since denied doing so, Stassi Schroeder claims Maloney’s friendship with Scheana Marie was a betrayal, and for months, they didn’t speak.

While Stassi Schroeder and Maloney have yet to come out and say they are friends once again, they appear to have made amends during Season 3, and were recently spotted together in Park City, Utah. That said, Maloney wasn’t willing to give any storylines away during a recent interview.
When asked whether or not she would be inviting Stassi Schroeder to her wedding, Maloney played coy on their friendship.
“That is a good question. [Laughs] So far, no one has officially been invited,” Maloney explained to Hollywood Life last month. “I can’t say if she’ll be included. You’ll have to stay tuned and keep watching the show.”
“I don’t want to give too much away. [Stassi Schroeder’s return] is a pretty big part of my story [this season],” Maloney continued. “As you’ll see it on the show, you will have an idea when you see what goes down. There was a lot to say about Stassi’s return and the way certain people feel about it. There’s so much more to look forward to this season. We have a long, long season coming up, so the best is yet to come.”
During sneak peeks at the show, Stassi Schroeder has been seen meeting with both Katie Maloney and her fiancé, Tom Schwartz, but so far, their time together hasn’t been seen on the show. Instead, fans have only seen Stassi Schroeder’s attempts at apologizing for her previous behavior.
For more Stassi Schroeder, tune into Vanderpump Rules Season 4, airing on Monday nights at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
