Stassi Schroeder on Why She Ended Friendships With Vanderpump Rules Costars, Confirms Plan For Second Baby in 2023

Stassi Schroeder reflected on the end of past friendships during a December 2022 episode of her relaunched podcastStraight Up With Stassi.

After admitting she’s learned to appreciate “a slower life” after being fired from Vanderpump Rules in June 2020, Stassi said that after being forced to spend time with people she “didn’t like” on the Bravo reality series, she’s learned to cut people out of her life who don’t bring her “joy or happiness.”

“Why do I need to go to hang out with somebody who constantly sh-ts on me in other podcasts? Why do I have to do that? Why?” Stassi asked, via Heavy. “Because people on Instagram are leaving comments being like, ‘Why don’t you hang out with this person anymore?’ Because I don’t want to! Because this person doesn’t bring joy and this person is — I don’t know, we’ve outgrown each other and that’s allowed.”

Although Stassi didn’t name names, she had a very public falling out with Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright months ago after the couple failed to attend her and Beau Clark‘s intimate wedding in Italy, claiming that a number of factors led to them bailing just hours before Stassi and Beau headed to Europe.

Moving on from her ended friendships, Stassi said she and Beau hope to welcome their second child this year.

“The main thing I hope for in 2023 is I really want to have a baby,” she shared, via Heavy. “I always knew I wanted a big family, as big of a family as I am able to have, I know that I want to have as many kids as I can have, you know, you never know what you are going to be blessed with.”

According to Stassi, she felt consumed by her role as a mom after welcoming daughter Hartford in January 2021. However, after the return of Straight Up With Stassi and the publication of her second book, Off with My Head: The Definitive Basic B**** Handbook to Surviving Rock Bottom, she felt re-energized.

“I am a person too, I am not just a mom, I have that part of me back. I am me. Stassi matters too,” she noted. “And so I was scared to get pregnant again for a while and I wish it didn’t take me that long because I didn’t realize, you know, it takes a while to get pregnant and we’re at the point where I want that more than anything in the world.”

Stassi is also writing a third book, but she didn’t want to spoil any details.

“It’s a ‘Basic B**** Handguide,’ still that but the message is — it’s very clear and different but I can’t say too much, just know I’m working on it,” she confirmed.

Vanderpump Rules season 10 is expected to begin airing on Bravo early this year.
