After Show: Lisa on Stassi & Katie

Katie Maloney's falling out with Stassi Schroeder was one of the most emotional moments in Vanderpump Rules history. But this season, Stassi is back with the SUR squad and back on good terms with Katie. 

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

Now that these two are in each other's lives again, Lisa Vanderpump said that she has seen "a little bit" of a change in Katie during Monday's Watch What Happens Live After Show (clip above). "Well, she takes a bit of a journey this season. It wasn't an easy journey, just when you're feeling the pressure of getting married," the Vanderpump Rules boss explained. "There were a lot of splinters of this group, you'll see."  

But when it comes to the dynamic between Stassi and the rest of the Vanderpump Rules crew, some things never change. "I think Stassi still has some kind of Machiavellian power over this group. I do," Lisa said during the WWHL After Show. "And she's a very strong character, but Katie's grown up a little bit. 

This season, it looks like the Vanderpump Rules ladies are sticking together in what Tom Schwartz has dubbed the "vagina mafia." So does that mean Stassi is the leader? See for yourself in this memorable moment from the Season 5 premiere, below.
