Stassi Schroeder and Ariana Madix have never really been the best of friends in all of their years on Vanderpump Rules. So when Stassi expressed that she wasn't exactly a big fan of Ariana's little brother, Jeremy Madix, last season, well, that definitely didn't do much to bring these ladies closer together.
But now that it's a year later, have Stassi's feelings about Jeremy changed? Why, yes, they have, actually.
Stassi said during Monday night's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen that she no longer thinks Jeremy is "creepy," the word she used to describe him last season that caused a stir (clip above). However, it doesn't sound like they'll be hanging out much outside of SUR. "He's an acquaintance. Like, he's around," Stassi told one WWHL caller asking what her relationship with Jeremy is like these days. "Yeah, he's fine and friendly."
In fact, we'll also see a huge change in Stassi and Ariana's relationship this season of Vanderpump Rules. We mean, we almost did a double take when they threw a joint birthday party for the first time over the summer.
Stassi reflected on the evolution of her relationship with Ariana on WWHL on Monday (clip below). "Listen, I have loved Ariana since the beginning, and it's only been a matter of time where I'm like, 'Can't you just love me back?'" she shared. "And she does now."
We'll see that newfound friendship between Stassi and Ariana bloom in an all-new episode of Vanderpump Rules on Monday at 9/8c. In the below sneak peek, Stassi shares how she was finally able to win Ariana over. "Becoming friends with Ariana was pretty easy," she explained. "I just went to all the parties and events she was at and followed her around until she was either forced to take out a restraining order or hang out with me."
And this is why Ariana ultimately decided to give in to having Stassi as her pal. "She was really wanting to be my friend and so nice to me for so long that at a certain point I kind of just gave up the energy to be bitchy anymore," Ariana said.
One person who doesn't seem so thrilled about Stassi and Ariana's camaraderie is Scheana Shay. Find out why in the below preview clip.
