Stassi Schroeder said she would never speak about that infamous sex tape again, but the reality star has been slowly opening up about it on Season 4 of Vanderpump Rules.
After Stassi Schroeder quit Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant SUR and the successful Bravo reality series, she continued to talk about her former cast members. Schroeder referred to Vanderpump as an “old woman,” and claimed that the members of the show have problems with substance abuse.
In a new sneak peek for Monday night’s (Feb. 1) episode of Vanderpump Rules, Stassi waltzes into Lisa’s restaurant to apologize for her inappropriate comments. This also brings viewers Queen Lisa’s sassiest quote of the season: “You are not important enough to hate, sit down.”
“I don’t really have any interest in anything you have to say, to be honest,” Vanderpump told Schroeder. “Say what you want about me. I don’t care, but don’t diss my staff, my restaurant and my business.”
Lisa then revealed that she did Stassi a big favor. A few years ago, one of Stassi’s ex-boyfriends tried to sell a private video that she made for him, but Lisa fired him from SUR and paid him off to keep the video from getting out to the public. Stassi apologized and even tried to pay Lisa for paying her ex off, but Lisa did not want to accept her apology or money.
“I don’t want your money,” Lisa told Stassi. “It’s an insult.”

Schroeder said on last year’s Vanderpump Rules reunion show that she would never speak of the sex tape again, but has since mentioned it in the previous episode and in tonight’s episode. Of course, the infamous self-pleasure video was addressed yet again, according to sources close to the show.
Sources also revealed to ShowBiz Spy that the Stassi Schroeder sex tape has made its rounds yet again on the Internet; although, it’s not clear how the video got into their hands. It’s also unclear if the anonymous ex-boyfriend or if Lisa Vanderpump leaked the sex tape out of spite. ShowBiz claims to have a link to the video, but beware that it’s NSFW for it’s graphic content.
The outlet also reached out to Stassi to see if she was the one who leaked it herself.
“No I did not and never would, I do not know who is responsible for this entire mess.”
Then, she was asked why she mentioned the sex tape again on the show after she promised never to speak about its existence again.
“I have reluctantly talked about the mistake only when it comes up in an effort to defend my actions that I am very regretful for, I think producers are the ones pulling the strings because it generates ratings for the show which in turn generates money from advertisers.”
But, ShowBiz Spy claims that they don’t believe Stassi Schroeder was pressured by producers to bring up the sex tape for ratings. They claim that she was the one to bring it up without any added pressure.
On last week’s episode of Vanderpump Rules, she revealed that co-star Scheana Shay was the one who showed the video at the SUR restaurant during a private party.
“Take the most private moment you could ever have, and then have people looking at it and shopping it around. I never wanted anyone to know about it, but that was the reason I felt a certain way about a lot of them and it looked weird on camera because I couldn’t justify why I was hating on them.”
Stassi previously hinted to Reality Tea that she would address the tape on upcoming episodes of the series.
“You will see me talk about it and explain myself a lot in the coming season,” she added.
In addition, an insider previously told Reality Tea that the Stassi Schroeder sex tape is almost 30 minutes long and features the star pleasuring herself with a dildo.
The new episode of Vanderpump Rules, aptly titled “Sex, Lies and Stassi’s Videotape,” airs Monday night at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo.
