However, Stassi couldn't do it all alone. She dedicated the book to her boyfriend, Beau Clark, thanking him "for encouraging me to own my basic bitch every single day."
Stassi also had lots of people to thank in the Acknowledgments section of Next Level Basic, starting with her mom and dad "for constantly telling me that I could do anything I put my mind to." She then went on to show gratitude to two people we would consider her honorary mother and father: Lisa Vanderpump and Andy Cohen. "Lisa Vanderpump, you have been such an inspiration to watch and be around. Your work ethic is like none other, you have truly mastered the art of doing it all, and your jewelry collection is phenom," Stassi wrote. "Andy Cohen, thank you for taking one look at our restaurant photo and telling us to go for it."
She also thanked her closest gal pals, who we can only assume are many of the ladies of the Vanderpump Rules crew. "To my witches and my best girlfriends—the support y'all have shown me has made me feel so strong and safe. I don't want to get all 'Live Laugh Love' on you (gross), but y'all have lifted me up when I've hit rock bottom and have grounded me when my bitchy Dark Passenger has been unleashed," Stassi gushed. "There is nothing like a good girlfriend. You guys know who you are, and if you're still wondering, then you're probably not one of them."
Stassi dedicated a few more lines to showing everyone how much Beau means to her. "Beau, I love you. You are the only man who has made me feel wholly comfortable and loved by being 100 percent myself. You have inspired me to write this book in so many ways, because you gave me the safe space to just be myself and write honestly," she said. "Also, I've never felt insecure watching a Kardashian marathon in front of you. That's maje."
Finally, Stassi thanked her fans, who she lovingly refers to as Khaleesis, inspired by her love for the Game of Thrones character Daenerys Targaryen. "And finally to my Khaleesis: Thank you for laughing with me, crying with me, and judging with me," Stassi wrote. "Connecting with all of you and having this little community has been one of the things I'm most proud of. You have given me purpose. And there is no greater gift than that. Well, maybe a diamond-encrusted ranch bottle, but you know."
Yeah, we know.
