Stassi Schröder aimed Tom Sandoval And Raquel Leviss on the latest episode of his podcast.
Following the announcement of their alleged affair of several months, which took place behind the back of Ariana Madixhis girlfriend of nine years and his close friend, the Vanderpump Rules alum called the reported couple “evil” and “cruel” as she wondered how Ariana would recover from the traumatic betrayal.
“Everything I thought I knew about everything, my world has been rocked. I don’t know my own name anymore. My unborn baby is feeling this, okay? My unborn baby is very stressed,” Stassi admitted in a series clips from the March 8 episode of Straight with Stassi shared by a Pump Rules Instagram fan page.
“Everything is so diabolical. Seven months? Doing that for seven months behind someone you consider your best friend? she continued. “She just did podcast episodes in New York on Wednesday, the day Ariana found out about all of this, talking about how Ariana is one of her true, true friends, how Ariana is one of the only people who welcomed her. Knowing what she’s been doing for over six months and being able to lie like that, just, is a pain I’ve never encountered before, with her and Tom.
“Everything is cruel. It’s so visible,” Stassi added.
Then, after noting that the scandal had made him realize that the claims about Sandoval and “Miami girl” were “true”, Stassi denied that the love triangle had been created for Pump Rules cameras.
“They don’t invent anything for the intrigues. I know for a fact that Tom Sandoval would never go through something that made him look bad just to keep the show going,” she explained. “[He] I spent 10 years convincing everyone he was the right guy, which always drove me crazy because, I saw through it, and that’s why I fought him. [And] that’s probably why he didn’t like me and he spent those 10 years trying to convince everyone that I was a freak.
Although Sandoval targeted Stassi throughout his time on the show, Stassi said he was the monster.
“You have to be a new level of evil to do this to someone who has been nothing but a wonderful partner to you,” she noted.
Throwback to ex-boyfriend Jax Tayloraffair with a friend Kristen DoubtedStassi admitted the betrayal kicked off her ‘dark passenger persona’ who didn’t allow her to trust anyone – and even prompted her to take action against her husband Handsome Clark.
“[I] would go crazy for Beau if he came out later than me because I knew what happened to me and if one of my closest friends, one of my best friends at the time could do this to me, so anyone could do this to me. It took me so long to get over it that I don’t know how Ariana will ever get over it,” she explained. “Not only can someone she’s trusted for 10 years do this to her, but one of her best friends, who she took her under her wing and was so close to, can do this to her. .”
“How does she recover?” she asked.
Stassi went on to say that now that she knows what allegedly happened between Sandoval and Ariana, “it makes so much sense.”
“She didn’t care. She was in love with Tom Sandoval and went out with him all the time behind Ariana’s back! Like what the fuck? Also, while she was sleeping in the other room? For example, can you try to be original? she asked, signaling Jax and Kristen’s connection.
Also on Straight with StassiStassi said that like most reality shows facing scandal, the remaining episodes of Pump Rules season 10 will likely be re-released.
“They’re going to look for footage that they may have missed. They might have images or microphone sounds of someone talking about that that they didn’t pick up because that’s not what they were focusing on,” she explained. “It’s like, ‘Oh shit.’ We must have missed some stuff. Let’s go back and show the real story that we might have missed.
Vanderpump Rules Season 10 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
