What Was the Funniest Moment of Season 5?

It's no secret that Stassi Schroeder's relationship with Lisa Vanderpump has been on the rocks over the past couple of seasons. These days, Stassi said that another Vanderpump Rules relationship has come to resemble this stalemate with her former employer. 

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Wed. 9/8c. Stream next day and catch up on past seasons on Peacock.

Stassi gave an update on her relationship with Lisa during a recent appearance on the PUMP RULES Podcast. "I feel like Lisa is exactly the way I feel about Ariana [Madix]," Stassi said. "It's like I keep trying and then no matter what I do, I just can't quite get there." 

Of course, Stassi and Ariana weren't on the best of terms this past season of Vanderpump Rules. Though they seemed to be in a better place after having a heart-to-heart at Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney-Schwartz's wedding, Ariana revealed at the reunion that she was offended by Stassi's comment that she thought she had finally cracked her. 

Stassi clarified what she meant by that during the PUMP RULES Podcast. "Cracking somebody isn't something that's supposed to be taken as negative. I have been trying to crack Ariana since the day I met her," she explained. "When I say 'crack someone,' I mean actually get to a place where we're talking, we're vibing, we're not just being like, 'How are you?' 'I'm good, how are you?' 'Oh, do you like the tacos?' 'Yes, I love the tacos.' Like, something a little deeper than that."

Kristen Doute, who appeared on the PUMP RULES Podcast with Stassi, backed her up, saying that she thought that the Vanderpump Rules crew members had shared a sweet moment and didn't see any hint of malice when she watched it play out on TV. "I thought it was a really, really cool moment to watch as a viewer because I wasn't sitting there watching them have this conversation in person, though I was at the wedding, and it was like the most vulnerable," Kristen said.

We bet there's one thing Stassi and Ariana can agree on, that Tom and Katie's wedding was the absolute best. Relive the big day, below.
