Stassi Schroeder has a new boo, and he seems to be a hit with her Vanderpump Rules family and fans alike. But even with so many thumbs up for her boyfriend, Beau Clark, Stassi told The Daily Dish during an interview in New York City on Monday that she wasn't sure how one of her nearest and dearest would react to the new man in her life.
And that individual was none other than Lisa Vanderpump, which we can totally understand since she is simultaneously beloved and feared by just about everyone in the SUR squad. "I was probably most nervous to introduce Beau to Lisa because Lisa's tough! You never know what you're gonna get. You never know," Stassi explained. "And she asks the hard questions, the awkward questions."
Luckily for Stassi, Lisa and Beau seemed to hit it off when the Vanderpump Rules boss met him during SUR's Gay Pride event in Monday night's episode. "Stassi seems more herself. This is a guy who's gonna embrace who she is, rather than try to suppress her," Lisa shared in an interview during the episode. "She deserves a great relationship."
Not only did Lisa literally give Beau a thumbs up during the episode, but she also tweeted, "Love me some Beau," last week. "I was like, yes! God, this is so easy. Life is good! Hand me some goat cheese balls," Stassi told The Daily Dish while describing what was going through her mind when Beau got Lisa's seal of approval.
Dating someone who's universally loved is quite a new sensation for Stassi, whose most recent major relationships were with Patrick Meagher and, uh, Jax Taylor. "My family loves Beau! Seriously, I never met somebody that everybody just likes. What is that? I'm used to being the more likable one in the relationship, and I'm not, so it's super strange," Stassi said. "He ups my likability factor. He's good for my image."
Stassi said she can definitely see the merits of having a boyfriend whom everybody loves. "That had never really been a priority for me — obviously, look at my track record — like, what my friends and family thought. I guess I was just like, whatever, it's my life. Who cares about your opinions?" she explained. "But once I started dating Beau and everyone just organically loved him, I was like, god, this should've been No.1 on my list. It's so nice to have your friends and family be obsessed with your boyfriend because it just makes life that much easier. It's like one big family."
