Vanderpump Rules star and resident mean girl is finally ready to talk about leaving the show that made her a Bravolebrity and opened the doors for her current projects.
In a new interview Stassi says that reality TV “ isn’t my life anymore,” confirming that she is not longer part of Vanderpump Rules.
Stassi says she knew she was done at the VPR reunion, calling it “the worst day of my life” after news of a solo sex tape was brought up. Apparently the solo sex tape almost became a story line until Lisa Vanderpump squashed it.
During the reunion, which Stassi says she barely survived, she decided that she was done with the toxic environment at SUR and reality TV.“I held it together the whole time during taping, and went home afterwards and cried for two hours and went to sleep at 6:00 at night.”
Stassi says selling her life and personality for reality TV is behind her especially after the intense disconnect during the reunion.“I don’t hang out with these people. I don’t talk to them, and I’m not around it, I haven’t seen most of them in the seven months since filming stopped. It was so crazy to be back in that environment, and I was just looking at everyone just hating and fighting, and I thought there is just so much more than this minuscule situation.”
“It’s really hard to be in a show where you are being played to be one step hated of everybody else and rip each other to shreds. We’re not paid to sit around and get along. “They want to see dirt. It was really hard. But we did it to ourselves, we put ourselves in that situation, so I can’t complain about it.”
While Stassi is grateful for the platform Vanderpump Rules brought her she is more grateful for it teaching her about who she is as a person.“I learned that I’m tough. Maybe I had to grow to be tough.”
The only thing I can think is who’s going to be the villain on VPR now that Stassi is going, and Kristen doesn’t work at SUR anymore.
Are you sad to see Stassi leave VPR? Do you think the show will SURvive without Stassi?
