Stassi Schroeder and Lisa Vanderpump are seen butting heads in a new sneak peek at the second half of the Vanderpump Rules Season 4 reunion special.
After quitting the series in May of last year, telling podcast listeners that she was done faking relationships with people she didn’t want in her life, Stassi Schroeder chose to return to the show and embark on a number of new and rekindled relationships with those people. Meanwhile, a number of Stassi Schroeder’s co-stars were left upset and frustrated by her comments, and refused to make amends with the former fashion blogger when she returned.

In addition to Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix keeping their distance from Stassi Schroeder, Lisa Vanderpump was admittedly hesitant to allow her back into the group.
“It was a very difficult situation, and when she came to me, I thought for a moment, ‘You know, this is really genuine,’ and I thought, ‘You know what? Maybe she’s changed,'” Vanderpump explained to host Andy Cohen in the sneak peek seen below.
However, within a short time, Vanderpump’s thoughts on Stassi Schroeder changed, and she now feels Stassi Schroeder’s previous conversation with her was “just ingenuous.”
During the fourth season of the show, Stassi Schroeder sat down with Vanderpump at her restaurant and attempted to make amends, but after slamming Vanderpump publicly on multiple occasions, Vanderpump didn’t initially jump on board. Stassi Schroeder then poked fun at her conversation with Vanderpump after it happened, claiming all Vanderpump has done for her was give her a job at SUR Lounge as a waitress (she failed to mention the fact that Vanderpump paid off an ex-boyfriend who was trying to sell her sex tape, and also forgot Vanderpump gave her a role on Vanderpump Rules, thus making her a household name).
“Lisa! I am apologetic for a lot that I have done, but that doesn’t mean that every feeling that I have goes away. It doesn’t mean that I’m just whole-heartedly in love with you,” Stassi Schroeder explained to Vanderpump after hearing what she had to say.
“I don’t want you to be. Trust me, because the feeling is not mutual,” Vanderpump fired back.

In late 2014, after leaving her full-time role on Vanderpump Rules, Stassi Schroeder appeared on a Sirius XM radio program, where she spoke ill of her former boss.
“I still love SUR. I love going into SUR. I still have so many friends there that just aren’t on the show. I grew up there a little bit,” Stassi Schroeder explained of her feelings about the restaurant. But as for Vanderpump, her thoughts weren’t as positive.
“[Lisa], like, doesn’t like me. I don’t understand what her problem is. [She’s] like an old woman, why does [she] care what I’m doing?” Stassi Schroeder asked.
In response to Stassi Schroeder’s childish dig at Vanderpump, a source spoke to Perez Hilton, offering the following statement.
“Lisa feels that [Stassi Schroeder] has no loyalty what so ever. She’s provided all these wonderful opportunities for her and doesn’t get a thank you. The entire cast dreads filming with her and on many occasions have refused to film with her.”
