As a current 21 year old, their age is not an excuse for their actions. Their actions are a testament to their character and their judgment, not their ages. I attend school full time, work a full time job, and have also juggled a part time weekend job along with this schedule, while also regularly volunteering in my free time. Yes, I still have fun with my friends and enjoy life (or else I would go completely crazy), but never have I once acted in the manner of the people on this show.

I started working when I was 16 and I NEVER acted like this.  There is no excuse for Stassi

You all say that stassi is such a bully and all this other mean and crude Comments about her so exactly how does that make any of you better?

I would love to know what happened to Stassi when she was a child. I've never seen someone so totally insecure, she has to put people down and belittle them to make herself look good and feel better. NEWSFLASH STASSI YOU ARE NOT ALL THAT ! Get over yourself!!!

Lisa I love you and your adorable, sexy and sweetheart of a husband. But tonight I saw this new show and I can't believe you would even lend your name to this group of legends in their own minds. I am now going to turn this overly dramatic show off.

Remembering when I was in my 20's....hmmm, I was going to school, had a full time job, my own home and may have done a bit of playing on the weekends but no where near the extent of these 20-30 year olds. I've always been working towards my future and retirement. Not to who I will be sleeping with next, how I'm going to pay my bills or any other of the BS drama these CHILDREN do..... that's the problem today......the kids feel entitled, owed....by whom for what?!? Don't see anything they do that is deservant of any pats on the back...and they are not kids.....disgusting! No wonder people think of Americans as they do....trashy!!

This show is ridiculous. What does Lisa Vanderpump have to do with a bunch of young adults. Lisa "rules" what?.

I love stassi. She may be a spoiled "b"; however, she's right about a lot of things! The Brittany wannabe is utterly annoying and I'd love to see her put in her place. I dont care if its Brandi or stassi! Love the show!!!

Instead of using this show to showcase herself in a positive light and highlight her positive qualities and possibly spin off to other projects,  Stassi has chosen to only show her worst side, clearly shooting herself in the foot.

 

Doesn't she realize that no casting director, agent...or restaurateur will ever want to work with her after seeing her "performance" on Vanderpump Rules?

 

Spencer Pratt used this same strategy on The Hills. He became the villain of the show, obviously thinking that it would boost his popularity, but if backfired on him, and he became a social pariah, and to this day still is. Stassi is headed in the same direction.

I have ran bars/restaurants for over a decade and let me tell you family/friend connection or not Stassi would be out the door! Not only is she clearly creating problems among the other workers she is creating scenes in front of customers. Not to mention her drinking while working is opening your business up for fines! The girl is unaccountable and a true honest to goodness sociopath! Who is she to appoint herself to be the values, morals, and ethics police! I honestly don't like watching any part of the show involving her. I hope that the scene where they show you firing someone involves her! It honestly makes you look bad that your supporting this witch when she is clearly the one in the wrong. Not to mention that the filming of it is giving so many people the ammo for a wrongful termination suit. I am not saying they would win or have a leg to stand on, but it sure does paint you and your restaurant in a negative light! Furthermore it makes your beautiful daughter Pandora who seems like a great girl look as though she chooses to surround herself with the classic mean girl nobody likes, but is afraid to cross. She gets what she wants by bullying and using her connection to your family as a stepping stone to tear others down! It makes me sick the girl is at all times making herself feel better and get ahead by ripping out the souls of everyone who crosses her path! She is a succubus and doesn't deserve the camera time she gets to spread her poison! It really does add a negative light not only to those around her who encourages and/or puts up with and defends her when she is clearly wrong! I hope at some point you either set her straight and call her out on her mean spirited behavior or release her from your employment! She truly is making you and your business look bad! It really is a shame because you and your family seem like great people with much more class then anyone involved in either show! I so enjoy watching your family on both shows and don't want to stop being a loyal viewer of your new show, but again I can't stress enough how very much watching anything involving Stassi turns me off to the whole show! I am very sorry to say all this, but I feel so strongly about it. God bless you and your family and best of luck with everything! Just please keep being your loving selves and keep being the loving classy people you are!

Lisa: Love you, but not sure about the show. All of your employees are way too sure of themselves, and I'm not sure why. Stacci is a bully, plain and simple. She thinks she is such a catch both  in personality and physically. News Flash...she is not all that. Her personality is always hostile, insecure, all about her, and a flat out bitch. She isn't  even all that great looking as she seems to think she is. In fact, none of the girls are. They are actually all quite plain looking. I wouldn't say one of them is "pretty".

 

How do you put up with them and why do you? Just because Stacci is a good friend of Pandora's, (which is hard to believe), is no reason for you and the rest of the staff to put up with her bullying. She says she has made people quit and you tolerate that? Jax needs to grow some you know what and kick her to the curb. She walks all over him and everyone else and they allow it. Enough of these shows with "bullying" in them...it doesn't set an example for the younger generation watching the show. Come on Lisa, you know better. Friend of Pandora's or not, you should get rid of her. She is hard to watch. In fact, most of them are. None of them are all that even though they all think they are. This show could become boring fast if it is the same thing week after week as it has been the first two shows! Sorry, I expected more.

 

Stacci, grow up. Jax, man up. Lisa, be a boss, fire her!

Lisa, Iove you, but don't understand why you have an aligience toward Stassi, it's obvious she has a problem. She should have been fired probably long ago, it's obvious she causes a lot of the problems.  It's up to you to set the rules, no one should bring their problems to work, they should definitely be left on the sidewalk before they walk thru the doors of SUR.  Please take control.

Stassi is a bully and a mean girl. How you keep her useless butt hired is beyond me.

Lisa - We love you!  You are a very beautiful, classy lady - how can you stand to be around that sociopath Stacci.  Not only is she a nasty bully but she's mean spirited, deceitful, trashy and gross.

Lisa  I cannot believe that your daughter is friends with mean girl Stassi - Pandora seems like a nice girl and what could she possibly have in common with that nasty girl

Lisa i love you completely! you are a diamond! however, i think when it comes to this show, the cast should fend for themselves.  One thing i do want to remark is that Stassi (though) she doesn't misbehave or speak poorly to others in front of you is toxic. Her issues are IN your business. Also who pools tips? All these kids should be fending for themselves not dipping into others hard word work.  I am glad Ken is all fixed up (LOL) you guys make an amazing couple. Continued successs

Lisa, you need to NOT blog on this shiow. i see that you're executive producer, but please don;t blog, and don't defend on the talking head's bits.  It opens you to criticism, and you're only going to get resentful with the viewers, who thus far, you've got behind you and you're having a great relationship with onm the RHOBH run.. Stop blogging on here, let the cast fend for themselves,,,trust me on this one.

I love you Lisa, but i can't watch this show. I can't stand Stassi or Scheana. Stassi is just a bitch that i would shove her head in the toilet if i worked with her. Scheana i dont know how i feel yet, but i adore Brandi. Stassi needs to go. She would never last a shift if she worked in Boston, i can guarantee!!! Good Luck with all your vetures

I like Stassi! Sorry folks but I enjoyed watching Shaena catch some grief! That girls only regret about sleeping with Eddie is that she got dumped by him.

Wasn't Adrienne 20 at some point?  Well look at her now...wisdom does not come with age....wrinkles do.

I think some of them are okay looking but not as hot as they think they are.  Most of them are devoid of any type of personality -- minus Stassi and Scheena.

Lisa, You are a classy and good hearted person. One word/name -- Cedric You are not naive but seriously, keeping people such as Kyle and Stassi in your life is asking for repeats of Disappointment. Kyle and Stassi are no different that Cedric and Adrienne. They do not care for you. They only care what YOU can do for them. There are plenty of really great, beautiful, stupylish people in their twenties who know better than Stassi. It isn't about not making errors in judgement, it's about a level if courtesy and respect for others, even if you don't particularly like them Stop giving these loser/users passes... Fool me once.......

Also, attractive and hard working waitstaff are a dime a dozen in LA. I can't fathom going to a nice restaurant or Bar in New York or LA and having waitstaff treat me poorly and maintain their position. Stassi was drinking while working and insulted a frequent customer? That is a no no and absolute poison to a restaurant no matter how good the food or ambience is....

TTF-DC

There are mistakes we make in our twenties and then there are just certain ways that we must treat other human beings. The later is learned, or should be learned around age six. I don't see Stassi as making youthful mistakes, I see her in the midst of turning into an Adrienne Maloof type. No excuse for her mean spirited, negative comments. Her intent is not good. This show is just egging her poor conduct on. When I think of a Princess, I see Grace and Diana , who had kind hearts... Both Grace and Diana became Princesses in their twenties and both knew better than to conduct themselves in such a conceited, cruel fashion, especially in public.

I think that Stassi is an older looking version but has the same attitude as Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Just saying.

WHY do you have that bully, chick with blond hair, on this show. bullying is dangerous

Bino1952

As a former waitress (thankfully no more, hardest job on the planet) I don't believe in the pooling of tips. It is an unfair system and personally, I think your business would be better served if you did away with it.  Common sense tells you that if a person is working to make money for themselves they will work harder.  Why should your servers really give a hoot about how they treat the customers if they don't have to work at making the tip?  Just sayin'.

Kristieeanderson

Clearly you knew everyone would hate Stasi, and that is why she is there. Someone that can make you like Sheana. If I keep watching I will have to fast forward through the Stasi scenes so I don't take pleasure in watching her pain. Pain is definitely headed toward someone that nasty.

I'm a fan of your's, Lisa, but unfortunately I really didn't like this show.  It was clever to have it included on people's recordings of RHOBH, but I must admit that I fastforwarded through much of it as I found your wait staff incredibly irritating to watch.  Your fans wanted to see more of you, not a bunch of narcissistic, immature, bullying-types who are just trying to be famous.  Sorry, I won't be watching this any longer.

Lisa, Your absolutely the best housewife of all time. After living in the UK I have an understanding & great respect for the people there. You are definately a classy & beautiful woman who carries herself extremely well & there are some who should take lessons from you.

The show Vanderpump Rules is great but I would love to see you stick Stacci's nose in a corner for a good long while & in front of co workers. She acts like a child, she should be treated like one & just maybe she would grow up or quit. LOL!

Much luck with your show. I will be watching & gritting my teeth at Stacci.....UGH!

After everything Brandi has been through, did you really have to make the comment "SUR is where you take your mistress."  That truly surprised me.  Very thoughtless and cruel.

Come on everyone.  You do know that this is all done for entertainment, right?  No one would keep employees that behaved like this and stay in business.  Relax and enjoy the drama, if that is what you like.

Lisa,

 

My best friend worked at my parents’ restaurant while in her early 20s and she was one of the best workers they had ever had because she had a higher level of respect for them and their business and she cared more than others. Pandora must be a very forgiving person to still be friends with Stassi. You have raised her well.

 

Enabling Stassi isn’t going to teach her anything, it will just confuse her more than she already is. Being 29, I have been around plenty of 20 somethings and have never seen or encountered anyone quite like her. I don’t see her being able to figure it out on her own because for a twenty something, her maturity seems pretty behind. I honestly don’t think she will change much unless someone gets a hold of her and convinces her to get some serious therapy. If not, she’ll just keep going along thinking the way she is is acceptable. Maybe you could be that person Lisa. You seem to show time and time again that you are the voice of reason. If she really looks up to you as she says, she would take your advice and follow your direction. Apparently, you need to be a mom to many others.

 

 Thanks

I was really looking forward to this show--and was really disappointed.  I had to turn the channel after 20 minutes--other than Lisa and Ken, there is nobody I can say I really like on this show.  And that Stassi--ugh.  Watching this show was kind of like getting a paper cut--it was both painful and annoying.

Lisa. Lovely fellow Brit. I am so gutted that Stassi is in Vanderpump rules. I can no longer watch. Having been so excited for your new show, I watch in horror. I was hoping for your British humour. The fun and light that you bring. A big chance to show people that successful businesses come with good management and a close knit team. I saw a vacuous bully who, I'm so sorry to say, is allowed to behave the way she does. SUR is a direct representation of you. Stassi is part of that representation. In no way am I trying to tell you how to run your successful business, and I do hope SUR remains successful, I'm merely telling you (badly) that I wouldn't allow my precious daughter to work in SUR or would I ever want to come to drink or dine with the knowledge I have. You are right, at 20 we are idealistic and headstrong and do make mistakes... I know for certain that bullying at 20 isn't a mistake however. That's just a bully. Who has bullied before and will bully again. It's such a shame Stassi is Pandoras friend, Pandora is a beautiful representation of you and Ken from what I've seen. I hope she never treated your precious girl in the same way she treated Scheana. Scheana, who, despite her crime, is just a girl starting her new job. Her personal life should remain thus. Good luck for the future. I wish, with some guidance from you that SUR with flourish. Happy New Year. Rebecca

Terrible show we hated it... and were dissapointed to find out that Lisa has to put up with these people, we will never watch it. A bunch of spoiled entitled nothings thinking they are something. News flash people you are something....WAIT STAFF. In all honesty we have never tuned out to a show so fast. Huge fail Bravo please pull the plug and spare us of this crap.

Stassi a bully is not a Princess, but keep telling yourself that.  I will fast forward through all of your scenes.  Yawn, been there seen that movie.

Katie, why do you say "sorry" when you say everyone is attractive that works there?  You are assuming you guys are the only good looking people on the planet?   Who are you apologizing to? 

Sheana, you made a mistake and boy are you paying, hopefully you learned something but I get your young, he was hot, rich and famous and you got swept up in it all,you made some very poor decisions.   The other girls are just jealous, you are the hands down the most attractive one there and so they can bully in the name of "righteousness" over your past transgressions.  Boring really, there is enough mean girl fighting shows on Bravo, lets see some more of the guys working there, its women that watch these shows after all.

Lisa, you are delightful, I wish you much success in your new show you are far and above the favorite of all of Bravo.

 Also, if this was a real life drama in the work place, another reason Stassi would be gone is that her behavior could cost the restaurant legal problems or even a lawsuit......she is a threat to the integrity of the business.  She is highly combustible. When the day comes that she unravels on a patron SOMEONE will wish they had gotten rid of her.

@LisLwr I second this advice....blogs can destroy a personality...and so can the talking heads....i would stay out of the fray with this one.....as hard as it might be....you already made a mistake with viewers by passing Stassi's behavior off...and saying she is Pandoras friend....most of us have worked with very similar situations...having a co worker who tormented over half the other employees, but got by with it because of some inside favoritism by the boss...we instantly dislike the boss...and that is what will happen with viewers who watch you put up with an employee who treats people bad because they can....you,Lisa, will represent that long ago boss that caused the viewer to alter their career path because of the Stassi like personality they worked with....that is how viewers form their opinions of these reality show cast members....

 I often record my Bravo faves in middle of night so my husband doesn’t complain. So I was surprised that I had a 120 min recording of RHOBH. Then I watched and it switched without really alerting the viewer that you were watching VR. I really am tired of Bullies.  I watched RHOM with Queen Bully’s Adriana, Alexia and Ana. Now we have Kyle, Faye and Adrianne attacking Brandi. Can’t take Nasty Stassi doing her mean girl routine. Won’t be tuning in if she continues to be the BIOTCH!!! She went on record admitting to running off girls she doesn’t like. Lisa is aware of this and keeps her. Makes me think twice about who Lisa really is…………..just sayin!!!!!

 @Britfan13 If Stassi stays, I go. Promise. There is a CLEAR line between guilty-pleasure-type drama and disgusting, reflux-producing filth. Please get rid of her. I have always been, and continue to remain, YOUR loyal fan; but not of this show, not if she stays.

 @ddbird2l  @OCViewer13 Lisa is a strong woman that believes that people need to stick up for themselves....which is exactly what she told Scheena to do in regards to Stassi.
