Stassi's mother, Dayna Schroeder, was in town for her 30th birthday party, and she left quite the impression on the crew. Dayna seemed to be critical of her daughter and her love life while chatting with Stassi's boyfriend, Beau Clark. Stassi and her mom later experienced a heated moment during a dinner out with Katie Maloney-Schwartz, Kristen Doute, and their mothers, which ended in tears, which you can view, above.
Dayna recently reflected on her behavior during the episode and opened up about her relationship with her daughter in a post on Instagram that featured several lovely photos of the duo. "These are the moments I treasure with my wonderful daughter. Not the moments from last night's episode [debacle]!!" Dayna shared. "Nastassia [Stassi's real name] knows how much I love her and how I think she is the most confident, smart, witty, kindhearted, loving girl. I am so proud of her and all of her accomplishments!"
She went on to explain that fans may have misinterpreted their interactions on Vanderpump Rules. "I do however, have to step back and tell myself that people that don't know me or us, don't get to see our rapport together. We are funny and sarcastic, dramatic, silly, obnoxious and always teasing or taking digs at each other. That's what our family does," Dayna explained, adding that she also had too much to drink that night. "And that's why people who don't personally know us would think that I was SERIOUSLY saying those wise cracks to Beau and Stassi to be that horrible of a mother? I was trying to be 'that embarrassing funny mom.' And I get it. If I saw this show and someone's mother was laughing and teasing her daughter unmercifully, I would think she was awful [too]."
Dayna concluded the post, "But ya'll have no idea how loving and close of a family we are. Including Beau and the girls and their wonderful mothers. I'm very sorry if I offended anyone in our group that day."
Dayna included several hashtags at the end of the post in which she expressed that this will never happen again and that she "felt the need to clear the air" after the episode. She also apologized for pinching Beau's butt at Stassi's birthday party and sent her love to him, the Vanderpump Rules gals, and their mothers.
