It’s no secret that Stassi Schroeder had a hard time getting to know Ariana Madix while filming Vanderpump Rules this season. And during a recent podcast appearance, Schroeder is updating us on her relationship with Ariana as well as Lisa Vanderpump.
“I feel like Lisa is exactly the way I feel about Ariana [Madix],” Stassi said on the Pump Rules podcast. “It’s like I keep trying and then no matter what I do, I just can’t quite get there.”
During the reunion, Madix mentioned how offended she was when Stassi used the phrase that she had “cracked” Ariana, when they actually had a nice conversation by a water fountain.
“Cracking somebody isn’t something that’s supposed to be taken as negative. I have been trying to crack Ariana since the day I met her,” she explained. “When I say ‘crack someone,’ I mean actually get to a place where we’re talking, we’re vibing, we’re not just being like, ‘How are you?’ ‘I’m good, how are you?’ ‘Oh, do you like the tacos?’ ‘Yes, I love the tacos.’ Like, something a little deeper than that.”
Kristen Doute, who was also in the studio, echoed Stassi’s thoughts. “I thought it was a really, really cool moment to watch as a viewer because I wasn’t sitting there watching them have this conversation in person, though I was at the wedding, and it was like the most vulnerable,” Kristen said.
Whose side are you on?
