Stassi Schroeder Explains Why She Quit 'Vanderpump Rules!'

Vanderpump Rules is currently filming its fourth season, and as reported, Stassi Schroeder announced that she was not returning to the Bravo hit reality show. Since her announcement, there's been numerous “rumors” reporting that she was fired due to her 'bad attitude.'

Stassi took her latest podcast, Straight Up With Stassi, to address and shut down these rumors and to explain the the real reason why she decided to walk away from Lisa Vanderpump's spin off series.

Speaking out on accusations  that she was fired for “having a bad attitude,” Stassi insists this could not be farther from the truth.

“When I first heard this, it didn’t really bother me, because I knew the truth. I knew that when I left Vanderpump Rules, this was inevitable, that things would be written about me and I wasn’t gonna like it. But this just feels a bit different…”

“I feel like I have to say something. Normally I don’t ever talk to tabloids, I don’t ever fight back when someone says something about me even if it’s awful.” Stassi labels people who call tabloids “tacky” and insinuates there is something “wrong” with their brains. “That’s some serial killer shit,” she says.

Schroeder explains why she quit #PumpRules:

“The decision to leave this show is one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make. It’s been something that I’ve deliberated over for two entire years now. I left the show in the most graceful way I possibly could.”

“I felt proud of myself to make that decision to finally walk away,” Stassi continues. “To be able to say that I’m going to walk away from a lot of financial security, I’m gonna walk away from fame, I’m gonna walk away from opportunities to do other things – all because I don’t want to be in a situation that doesn’t make me happy.”

“For someone to lie and say that I was fired, in any way, it’s gross and it’s sick, and it’s honestly just truly mean,” Stassi whines. She insists she could use her podcast - listened to by who??? - to incite fans to “be on my side” and she could use it to trash everyone, but she doesn’t because she wants to be “fair.” As always, Stassi is the bigger person!

She claims she was approached about signing on for another season but ultimately decided it was time to move on.

“A few months back before the reunion my producers asked me if I’d be willing to continue and said no. There was no bad blood – I can’t give the producers what they want,” Stassi recounts. “I loved the time I had on the show, especially the first two years! The first two years were a lot of fun, but people grow and people change and sometimes you just have to take a different path. It was my time to go: I’m not friends with the cast members, the way their lives are isn’t my life, and I’m not willing to go and pretend that my life is anything otherwise – and that is literally the reason that I left.”

Stassi clarifies, “I want to focus on other things and surround myself with people who are actually my friends. I don’t want anyone to feel bad about the fact that I’m not coming back to Vanderpump Rules. It’s just new beginnings.”

Stassi finishes by heaping MAJOR shade at Lisa, announcing, “If I’m in the later half of life, and I’m calling tabloids like TMZ to talk shit about people who are my children’s age – I give you permission to shoot me dead. Because you have to be super not happy with your life to do things like that.”
