They say that first impressions are everything. So by that logic, Stassi Schroeder and Kyle Cooke would probably never have seen each other again after the Vanderpump Rules and Summer House crews got together for one epic house party. Let's just say that Kyle forgetting Stassi's name and saying her turtleneck swimsuit made her look like Steve Jobs didn't exactly woo the Vanderpump Rules pal during their alone time in the hot tub.
But it looks like Stassi believes in second chances, because she recently told The Daily Dish that she and Kyle have actually become the closest of friends. "I adore Kyle. I feel so bad that our first meeting was like that, but also, it is so entertaining and it is my favorite scene in the history of Vanderpump Rules now," Stassi said. "I discovered that we're very similar. Our personalities are very similar, which is probably why a love connection didn't happen."
Stassi has even been spotted hanging out with Kyle, as well as Katie Maloney-Schwartz and Summer House's Stephen McGee in New York City. "Kyle is wonderful, and I'm happy to have him as my friend," Stassi said. "He's really cool."
Kyle isn't the only member of the Summer House gang who Stassi is tight with these days. "The Wirkus twins are more fun than, I feel like, any of us. I mean, they really know how to have a good time, and they make everybody around them feel comfortable. They're so easygoing," Stassi said of her friendship with Summer House's Ashley and Lauren. "But they're also dramatic the way that we are."
Stassi said she's been doing a lot of hanging with the Summer House squad. "I love the Summer House crew," she shared. "Whenever we're in New York, we meet up with them. We were in Cabo and met up with the Wirkus twins there."
In fact, their camaraderie was kind of like a no-brainer. "We get along so well," Stassi said of the Summer House cast. "We're all so like-minded and fun and everybody likes to drink and just party and be irresponsible. They can definitely hang. The Summer House crew can definitely hang."
