Stassi Gives Update On Friendship With Ariana Madix

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?

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
