Stassi Schroeder and her husband Beau Clark hosted a party for their two-year-old daughter, Hartford Charlie Rose Clark, over the weekend. And while Stassi shared tons of photos from the bash after it took place, it’s what she didn’t share that’s caused some controversy.
After the Vanderpump Rules alum noticeably failed to mention a couple of the party’s vendors, explaining that the experience she had with them wasn’t a good one, both of the companies offered a series of statements on their Instagram Stories.
As Pump Rules fans may have seen, Hartford’s birthday was celebrated with a “Queen of Harts”-themed bash.
“Figured this was probably the last year I get to choose her birthday theme and I wanted to do something that was a play on her name sooo Queen of Harts. She is a queen… so… made perfect sense,” Stassi explained in the caption of a series of photos shared to her Instagram page.
But after naming a number of vendors and others who helped with the party, Stassi was met with a question from a fan.
“Why didn’t you tag [Picnic and Petal] and [Glitz and Gather]?” they asked.
“Because the experience wasn’t one I would endorse or recommend,” Stassi replied, as seen in a screenshot shared by Bravo and Cocktails on Instagram.
In another post shared by Bravo and Cocktails, a screenshot of a message shared by Picnic and Petal was revealed.
“The mood board [Glitz and Gather] and I created to bring this event to life. Working through the Holidays. You live and you learn, but don’t ever doubt yourself or be proud of something YOU created,” they wrote, along with images of several key features of the bash.
“Hours of design, hours of [Glitz and Gather] being on the phone with the city for permits. Hours of day of set up. [Glitz and Gather] amazing balloon installations. A tag is just a tag, but I’ll always showcase something I’m proud to have done,” they continued in a second post, which featured the table decor of Hartford’s event.
Meanwhile, on Glitz and Gather’s Instagram Story, they offered a lengthier statement, which hinted that they were “talked down to” and “mistreated” by the former Pump Rules cast member.
“I am beyond grateful for all of my clients past, current, returning and new … I was raised in business and watched and worked alongside my mom [running] a successful business for over 30 years. So business, customer service, going above and beyond is in my blood,” they wrote. “I have learned, been humbled, grown and continue to try to better myself, my craft, my team and everything around me.”
“There comes a point where you can not tolerate disrespect and have to set boundaries. And sometimes that means completely removing yourself from [a] situation. But I will not be talked down to, mistreated, or allow my work to be disregarded … Paid or not,” they added.
Stassi was fired from Pump Rules in June 2020 following racially charged behavior against the show’s only Black cast member, Faith Stowers, and a series of other controversies.
Vanderpump Rules season 10 premieres on Wednesday, February 8, at 9/8c on Bravo.
