The Sur Dish

Stassi, Scheana, Katie, Kristen, and Tom dish on how the felt going into and coming out of the reunion.

on Mar 4, 20130

Stassi Schroeder

Bravotv.com: How did you feel going into this reunion?
Stassi Schroeder: I actually felt OK going in. I've dealt with all the crazy emotions for the past eight months, so I was mainly just concerned with staying in a positive place and not letting anyone get me down at the reunion. That was my goal.

Bravotv.com: Did you feel like people were ganging up on you at the reunion? On Jax?
SS: There were a few times I felt ganged up on, but hey, everyone is entitled their own opinions, and I didn't realize everyone else felt hurt by me as well. It was obviously hard to take but I can see everything from their points of view as well.

Jax did get a lot of heat -- but I think it was a long time coming. This whole season, everyone has believed him, and loved him, and worshiped the ground he walks on -- so I think it was deserving for him to finally take some heat for lying all summer. I think he handled it all well.

Bravotv.com: Do you think you and Jax will end up together?
SS: I have no idea what the future holds. We are just working on our friendship, and that's all I can give right now.

Bravotv.com: What was the most surprising fight or reveal that you feel happened at the reunion?
SS: Kristen and Tom accusing me of cheating with Frank actually really shocked me. It was disheartening and frustrating. I feel like they are two people who, once they've made up their minds about something, there is no convincing them otherwise, just like this past summer when they made the decision to believe Jax over me.

Bravotv.com: Anything else you want to say to wrap this season up?
SS: Just hoping for another season. This was such an amazing experience and I would love to do it again. I feel very blessed right now.

As a former server, actor, artist and film maker, I get it.

One of the things about this show is the exposure of the culture of some of these people pursuing their goals, living life and taking the shot for the brass ring of success. My initial observations of some of the people are someone objective and its quite clear that the drama of the show revolves around the nature of Stassi. I actually really feel sorry for her and I'll tell you why. She's never had a real relationship that had the long burn characteristics for a successful rocket launch. Yes, a flash in the pan is nice, but if you want the really amazing relationship, its the one where the flash ignites a torrential passionate force of fire that can lift both into orbit. It only starts getting good after 5 or 6 years together and the core essence which persistently plagues and undermines every relationship is a fundamental lack of trust and her simply hanging on way too tight. It does not help when someone gets cheated on as it would simply and in some cases forever alter ones ability to unlock the clamps protecting ones heart, soul and sanity.

 

Best of luck to you all. All that sun you guys got up there makes us Canadians a bit jealous right about now as its still snowing up here. Shots, cheers and beers!

Am i the only one that liked Laura Leigh ? I swear she was the most honest and realest person there, maybe a little naïve at first but when she got mad she spat the realest shit I ever heard out of any other the other cast members mouths. When she snapped at Stassi during the meeting was justified and true but they all called her crazy? and yet Stassi sent her all those crazy ass messages but that was ok? and what she said to Jax when she had heard from other people that he went back to Stassi. regardless of what type of relationship they had she should have been the first person he told. Stassi you act like a cry baby and a big hypocrite but you are no less entertaining, your attitude sucks and the real world a real woman would have smaked you by now. Jax is a dog( POINT BLANK PERIOD) and everyone else........... just faded to black because you all cater to one person resulting in yall being non factors on this show I wanna see more of the friends I saw in yaw little confessonals when yaw were snapping about Stassi, that was attitude other than that yaw get boring. Id like the show to come back but with more cast members to add to the spice. No More Quite Slaves PLEASE!!!! Give us some back bone people> Oh and Good LUCK LAURA LEIGH!!!

I totally agree with Tom Sandoval about Scheana's bizarre behavior toward protecting Stassi...and Stassi giggling about it.    it was weird.

Just saw Laura Leigh on the Client List. Wow this girl is going places.  I guess stassi can laugh now like she did when she found out the Laura Leigh had quit Sur. The jokes on you stassi.

Stassi & Jaxx belong together.... Hope they get married and ride off into the sunset.... Like maybe in the deep woods of Alaska.

I could not believe the footage at the party of Jax saying he was not committed to the woman he just wanted sex. Ok women need to learn to not give it up to jerks like him. Then I saw her on client list and couldn't believe it. Like a total turn around personality. So she can act but not care for her own self respect in real life...unreal. Women on reality tv need to know how impressionable the younger watchers are. They live to imitate what they see on tv. So to the people on this show think before you act and speak and do anything!

I don't care what anyone says, stassi is the only girl on the show with any personality Sheanas ok but that Kristin her personality is as limp as her hair and her passive aggressive digs she's like a cold gigantic fish

Andy should do a follow up with Laura-Leigh and get her side of the story. I would be interested in hearing what she has to say to the whole crew. She deserves a chance to defend herself and tell Stassi off again to her face. POW

Well Laura-Leigh's finally been able to show them all at last, especially Stassi. Stassi could only wish she could be as successful as her. I do not like mean girls that always beat others down. Stassi is not all that and her and Jax deserve each other. They are one in the same. Stassi didn't do a whole lot at work based on what the tv showed. She was more concerned about making Laura-Leigh miserable and ruining her life than she was about how she would appear on the show. Even on the reunion show she wasn't sorry.

Karma does exist and it will get everyone that crosses it.

Laura-Leigh is a good actress and hope to see more of her on tv and movies. She has quite a list of movies/shows she has already been in and it seems she is going places.

Stassi's favorite lines... "You're LUCKY I did xyz for you!" or "You're LUCKY I didn't do xyz to you!"  Can you hear it?

 

Truth - I'm not sure anybody's LUCKY to be near you at all.  Your threats are just soo tiresome.  I've never seen such a victim in all my life.

Stassi should not consider marrying Jax. Jax looks like a lot of fun to have around but his emotions are several years behind his actual age. 

Jax likes the drama of the relationship with Stassi it feeds his ego. Now that Jax has found Stassi as he says he is willing to "fight" for her. I thought if you loved someone you set them free to see if they return to you.

Oh well, great show.

Just watched the reunion and Stassie admitted to hitting Jax.  All Stassie could do was talk about how tramatic it was to her not that Jax might be hurt.  It's always all about Stassi.  I think that Stassie and Jax are perfect for each other.  These two do not need to bring anyone else into their disfunctional lives..

NO Stassi!!! We di dnot feel stupid for not believing you!! Just because Jax did lie, it doesn't give you a pass to be the self entitled selfish b!tch that you are!!! Just because he confessed it does not erase your horrific behavior and your treatment toward Katie and Kristen specifically!! I guess it is your immaturity that makes you rationalize your snotty hateful behavior. You keep whining about Jax and Laura Leigh, but you were sleeping with Frank TWO DAYS after you broke up with Jax???? How is this different?? You started the whole spiral downward for everyone. You are not a loyal friends. You did not and do not see what good friends Kristen and Katie have been to you. I love Lisa, but I cannot believe how she said we didn't get to "see the softer side of Stassi". Why?? Because there is NO SOFTER SIDE. She acts only for her own behefit. I've seen nothing giving, generous or kindness out of her toward ANYONE unless it benefits her. If the reunion was to make us all love Stassi, well it didn't work!!! I still hold her responsible for her horribly selfish behavior!!!

This show has become totally about Stassi and her spoiled rants.  I cannot take watching her mean girl antics for one more day.  I love Lisa and would have enjoyed the show more if it were a bit more about her and her life.  Watching Stassi is like nails on a chalkboard.  Watching her berate Kristen at the beach for bringing up Lauraleighs name and watching the rest placate her and soothe her like a ranting child was just the icing on the cake.  I shut it off and vowed never to watch again while Stassi was on.

Stassi, ignore all these mean comments. They are accusing you of bullying, yet that's all they are doing. Someone below wrote that they enjoyed you (after all the negtive blogs) and they were told to "shut up." You are very entertaining to watch and Lisa likes you. She's known you a long time so that tells me something. The lost footage with the reunion showed Lisa really disliking Kristen, and I'm with her! Listen, the show would have been a bore without you, I'd like to write more compliments, but the people on here are so cruel, I don't dare. Hang in there, and hopefully next season you will redeem yourself.

How can you not love Jax and root for him....he has made the mistakes of a young handsome guy...but learned a valuable lesson. He will make an amazing husband some day, now that he had learned that the lessons of heartbreak and faithfulness....I hope he finds happiness with or with out Stassi.

Stassi went through so much and held her head up so high, if I was her mom I would be proud of her strength. However she is so mean and demeaning to her friends and Jax...it's hard to be on her side. If she could lose the nasty attitude, she could be an amazing woman. You don't have to be so hard on everyone to be the alfa...which she clearly wants to be and is...there is something called benevolence .... Look it up Stassi and become the benevolent queen not the bitchy one....what I would say to you you if you were my little girl....

Stassi is need of mental therapy. Shoot - she "literally" makes Alex from Fatal Attraction look sane.

I am so happy that L.L. is in a real movie with Jennifer Ainston and I wish that Andy wold have brought that up during the reunion show. I was very disturbed when they mentioned that Stassi broke Jax's nose and no one really said anything about it.  Also since Lisa now knows that Jax and LL had sex at the restuarant why is he still working there/

Jax you need to always put a jaxit on it , so stop being a jaxass.

The last Vanderpump Rules with unaired events was so out of sequence, it was difficult to pur it all in the proper perspective.  Did anyone notice that when Jax was telling his latest "story" about the person in Vegas that supposedly got pregnant..then he told that he "knew her roommate" and she told him that she didn't really get pregnant but needed the money for something...Really?  Sounds fishy to me...is this another lie?

Also Stassi's scene on the beach should be shown to a psychiatrist to show that she is "clearly demented"..  She has problems..losing weight, crying all the time, telling everyone off...a lot of this drama she made for herself..but it deserves a deeper look.

I wonder why the fight between Jax and Frank has never been completely shown..it is because Frank won, and it demeaned Jax?   Jax certainly turned tail after that and left for home...humiliated..thank goodness.  The best thing about "Vanderpump Rules" was the outstanding photo shoot at Lisa's house and in the restaurant..  Those pictures should be in magazines...they were masterful.  Also Stassi's magazine article with pictures of Sheana..was terrific...now that is what she needs to concentrate on!

Halfway, last night, while watching the show, I turned the channel. This season was NOT about Lisa or SUR but about Jax and Stassi.  Everyone else was bit players. I don't own a business, nor have I ran one.  I get that this show can bring publicity to the business.  But, I just don't see how it hasn't hurt it.  Stassi and Jax are not exciting to watch. There is no great love affair. Each uses one another to get what they want.  I am disappointed in Lisa for keeping these two around.  They need a kick in the pants on realtiy and what is is like to really work for your dream.  One day they will run upon someone that will give as good as they do.  Maybe then, and only then, will these two realize how UGLY they have been.

I don't know why Stassi doesn't just stay alone...The only one who can please her is herself !!!!  She wants to regulate everything people say to her.  It was ridiculous for her to have a "hissy fit" at Kristen on the beach.  Can Kristen not have a conversation?  Maybe Kristen shouldn't have brought up Laura-Leigh, but she certainly can have "freedom of speech"..Stassi can't regulate everyone..then when Jax expressed a comment about their "sleeping together"...she had another fit...He shouldn't have said that either, but she is going ballistic about everything..close to a nervous breakdown...she needs to get some counseling.  Stassi stimulates all the discussion, but doesn't like the fallout!  Her meltdowns are uncalled for.  One of these days Lisa is going to get tired of all the interruptions to her business and that will be the end of Stassi.  Cool down, Stassi, One mention of Laura-Leigh sends you into a tailspin...that is not normal!  Laura-Leigh  hasn't done anything you yourself haven't done!

Well, maybe one thing...she has been focused on her career, and has done something with it!  Maybe that should be a good lesson for you!

Stassi is a verbal abuser and a narcissist.   Everyone should run the other way.  But if not take this as a life lesson on how to deal with people who are psychologically damaged and will never ever change.   They never change.  Watch her eyes as she sets the trap and then gets off on the hurt she inflicts.  Typical narcissist.   Jax needs to run.   Also watch her attack the girls who are being real with her.   Spider with a mean streak would be a good analogy.  Warn Pandora to watch her back.

I would love to see the day that Stassi gets treated and talked to the way she does to others. Wait until she grows up (which she claims to be) and gets into the real world, she will be crushed!

blah.....I read Stassi's column, not impressed with the writing at all...and the subject?  Pretty, superficial and meaningless.  Aren't there more important things to write about than what to wear with a little black dress?  I'd take Stassi a little more seriously, if she was a real writer, writing about important stuff.

I think Kristin and Katie are the best ones out of the bunch. Stassi is a mean girl. Scheanna is a follower. And hope Laura Lei makes it...shame on those who used her and were mean to her.

I intensely disliked Stassi early on, but I got a bad feeling about Jax after only a few episodes. I never believed the BS about sleeping in his car, and I suspected that her histrionics were a reaction to him gas lighting her. I also believed Frank, and it was a tremendous relief when Jax finally admitted that he had cheated. I think everyone on the show has a lot of growing up to do. But I want hope Stassi kicks Jax to the curb for good and doesn't give him another chance. He is not boyfriend or husband material, and he is not to be trusted. When Tom commented that Jax slept with a lot of girls by telling the, just what the girls want to hear, I suspected that Jax is a sociopath. Given that Jax flamed Stassi for being such a b----before their break up, I think he finds her useful for any number of reasons. He doesn't seem capable of love. Run away, Stassi, and don't look back.

Stassi, how is it ok for you to abuse your friend for bringing up a laura lee's name?  Did you not have sex with Frank before Jax started dealing with Laura Lee??? How can you be such a hypocrite???  You claim to feel betrayed by this girl because she was your friend.....blah blah blah.  Firstly, you were not friends, you worked together.  You use the word friend too loosely because you don't know the meaning of it.  So how is Frank any better???  Jax was confiding in him all along.  You still had no problem sleeping with him before, during and after.  You did a good job at taking the focus off of you by concentrating in Jax lying, however, it doesn't mean your behaviors were ok.

It's funny how some people here (Stassi lovers ) worry about being hated on because they like Stassi. No one would hate on them, except maybe Kathy Griffin and if there is a God please have him give some good Stassi joke to Kathy.

Stassi saying that Jax deserved to have his nose broken was just another example of her narcissitic self entitled behavior!  She is terrible to watch and the viewers hate her not because of the Jax breakup drama, but because of the way she treats other people. She doesn't listen or care one bit about other people's feelings and always makes it all about her.

it.is.what.it.is
it.is.what.it.is

I don't think anyone is responsible for people hating Stassi.  She comes across as a rude, self centered, spoiled, mean person.  I can't believe anyone would stand by your side and support your unacceptable behavior.  Stassi and Jax are perfect for each other.  I can't bear the thought that people like this not only exist, but are being paid to show the world how horrible they are, and how funny they think it is to bully other people.  

Scheana, your mouth is always moving.  Your makeup is PLASTERED on.  The support that you offer Stassi, shows your true colors.  You are not shining to me, but sinking in darkness. Your second chance to publicly redeem yourself, has failed IMO. Mean girls suck.  Jax is an idiot.  Kristin is a drama queen, and Katie is the most beautiful and kind hearted of all.  Katie please don't waste your time with these people, they will bring you down and soil your existence.

Blah, blah, blah... Jax broke up w a possessive 'Queen Bee' control freak by yes , being a cheating liar. Then he banged a work chick, the one who'd be a 'sure thing' she just jumped right in w both feet and he enjoyed new tang but wasnt trying to be w just one side show... She was dumb to think it'd work that soon for him anyway. Ok end of that non story....next!!

I think Jax has serious issues.  During the reunion when Lisa complained about Jax using Laura Leigh, I saw a snakey look in Jax eyes.  The whole relationship was extremely dysfunctional and I hope Jax stays in therapy.  I hope Stassi stays away from him because he will just mess with her head.    He took advantage of Laura Leigh because he knew he could get away with it.   That shows his true character which may never change. Stassi may be just a whinning brat but Jax would make any woman go ballistic. Jax if you read this stay away from women untill you get your head together.  You will not be good for anyone until you get therapy.

Stassi should have her own show!  Sure she's got a caustic sense of humor that some people obviously don't get, but I find her open and entertaining.  I think most women would take issue with a friend jumping on their ex boyfriend after he cheated on and hurt them - why people pity Laura Leigh is beyond me.  And her other two friends, snaggle tooth and neanderthal brow, who needs em!  Let them go work for Jax, raising money to finance his need for prostitutes.

 @chattyone

 Agreed!  I have had a tough time watching this girls behavior, makes me want to scream, and what makes it worse is that most of the people around her are so complacent, and accepting all of her rudeness.  Maybe its what sells the show, but I don't think I want to see it come back if they all are going to act like sheep.  Stassi: "while we are free to choose our actions" as rude as they may naturally seem to be for you,"we are not free to choose the consequences of our actions."   So basically, yeah, you can continue to act like a spoiled, mean girl, but don't expect people to not let you know that the behavior disgusts them.  You have to expect more people will go out of their way to sit down at one of the tables you are waiting on at Sur and really let you have it for being such a mean spirited person on a television program that so many people watch....  just saying

@Hollywood-if-she-could He ain't that young! He's certainly old enough to know that you don't cheat on a girl if you really are thinking of marrying her. I thought even high school kids knew better than that. The Vegas girl not even being pregnant, just shaking him down for money - Classic!

 @@seasonedviewer7 For me it's all about the money. Follow the money and you will see why they keep Stassi and Jax around. It keeps people talking which means it keeps tourist going to Sur to see if they can meet any of the Cast which means more butts in seats. What a money Maker for Lisa and what else is Stassi a 30 year old out of work "Actress" going to do. To you really think she would walk away from any camera? What a piece of work!

 @LolaLoo I thought with all of Lisa tact when it comes to insults, she would be livid with Stassi for her venom tougne and threats.  I thought Pandora should have given her the boot as well. There are second chances and then there is this.

 @nancydrew70  I'm sorry, but any guy in a relationship with a woman who has empathy, love, endearment, trust, or just a good person, what guy would screw that up? Do you think guys screw around for the sake of doing it? Men stray because there's a problem in the relationship and it's one-sided, because you know what, women do too.... I married my high school sweetheart and we were together for 18 yrs and 2 kids later... and he treated me like dirt. Refused to show any feelings, any love, all the things that make a marriage work, so i found it elsewhere. Yes. I screwed around on him. And it's been six years since i finally left him and "the other guy" treats me like a woman should be treated. And what i've seen of Stassi's behaviour towards him... hell ya, i would screw around too... go Jax!

 I agree! I love watching Stassi and find her humor hysterical. All the people who get on here and are so cruel and throw out "sociopath",and "bully" and "narcacisst," are so hypocritical. They scream "bully"and then bully her unmerciful. I could watch Stassi all day.(viewer braces herself for the bullies.....)

 I completely agree,,they are all hating on Stassi, and they wouldn't even BE on TV if not for her. They certainly couldn't "hold" a show. I think STassi is very enteratining and funny. But you get attacked by the "bully" police on here if you write that ...which is very hypcoritical btw.
