The Next Level Basic author recently revealed that Vanderpump Rules would have been very different if she had not dated Jax.
“He was not even supposed to be on ‘Vanderpump Rules,’” Stassi told her Pump Rules co-stars Lala Kent and Randall Emmett on the inaugural episode of their “Give Them Lala…with Randall” podcast. “He was not working at SUR and they cast the rest of us and they were like, ‘Who are you dating?’ And I was like, ‘This guy Jax.’”
“I own him!” she later joked.
Lala then asked Stassi when and how she started dating Jax. Stassi explained that she started dating Jax after meeting him in Las Vegas. Oddly enough, she also met Lala for the first time on that same trip.
“The day I met you is the day I met Jax,” Schroeder realized.
“So Stassi and I met when I was 18 years old for the first time,” Lala explained. “I was modeling … at a magic show in Vegas and I met Stassi and I remember exactly what I was wearing and she was like, ‘Oh my god.’”
As we all know, Stassi and Jax dated during season 1 of Pump Rules in 2012. However, their TV romance was short-lived after Jax cheated on Stassi with a stripper in Vegas. The two rekindled their romance for a short time in between filming season 1 and 2. However, their romance was over for good when the cameras started rolling for season 2 of their hit Bravo show.
Stassi is now happily engaged to Beau Clark while Jax married Brittany Cartwright in June 2019.
Vanderpump Rules airs on Tuesdays at 9 p,m. EST on Bravo.
Are you surprised Stassi is responsible for getting Jax on Pump Rules?
