Back to being besties!
Stassi Schroeder and her Vanderpump Rules co-star Kristen Doute have come a long way in their friendship. After boy drama pulled them apart — and the slap heard ‘round LA during Season 2 — they each decided to reconcile. They’re closer than ever now, so close that Stassi posted a sweet Instagram tribute to their friendship on Instagram.
“Dear Ride or Die, we’ve overcome the nearly impossible. People may doubt our [love], and to them: eff off. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being the most protective, generous person I know. One day our friendship will be written about in textbooks (Okay, no it won’t, but whatevs),” the 28-year-old wrote in a caption of a collage of photo of the pals. “Thank you for being the Tina Fey to my Amy [Poehler]. Happiest birthday [Kristen Doute]. I love you.”
Stassi and Kristen, 34, had a falling out in their friendship after Kirsten lied about sleeping with Stassi’s ex-boyfriend, Pump Rules co-star Jax Taylor. Stassi confronted Kristen in an episode during Season 2 of the hit Bravo reality TV series and the girls got into a physical altercation. It took years for Stassi to forgive her, but now the ladies are friends again.
But now that all of the drama with Kristen is in the past, Stassi has another feud to worry about. She’s currently fighting with cast member Ariana Madix and she exclusively revealed to In Touch that this time, she’s not the one causing problems on the show.
“I don’t have a problem with Ariana, Ariana has a problem with me,” Stassi told In Touch. “I’ve never done anything to her. I don’t understand it, nobody’s ever understood it, but I still try.”
