Days after Us Weekly first reported that Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder is pregnant, another magazine got confirmation. Stassi’s rep spoke out to People to confirm the baby news.
When is VPR’s Stassi Due?
While the original Us Weekly article “exclusively revealed” that Stassi is pregnant, many fans weren’t sure if it was legit or not. Neither Stassi nor her fiancé Beau Clark spoke publicly about the news.
However, People now reports that they have independent confirmation from Stassi’s new rep. Stassi’s long-time agent and PR firm let her go before the VPR firings. Finding a new rep was necessary.
The new rep, previously reported as Steve Honig, took on both Stassi and former VPR star Kristen Doute. The former friends released a joint statement of their hope of “moving forward” from the scandal.
The statement came days after the two, along with Max and Brett, were let go from Bravo for previous racially insensitive comments.
On Tuesday, June 16, the rep told People that Stassi and Beau will welcome their new baby “the first week in January.”
The couple are “grateful and eager” to start the “next chapter.” of their lives.
Wedding Postponed Until 2021
As fans know, the VPR stars were set to marry in Rome, Italy later this year. However, their wedding plans were put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now the couple will marry one year later – October 2021 in Italy.
Stassi previously said she didn’t want to get pregnant before her wedding. However, more recently she said that she wants a baby now. She noted that the quarantine is a perfect time to welcome a baby.
Despite Stassi and Kristen’s Firing, Fans Still Think More VPR Stars Should Go
At this point, it is still up in the air if Bravo plans to bring Vanderpump Rules back for another season. Many fans don’t see much of a show without Stassi.
However, if they do bring it back, fans hope one star will be missing: Jax Taylor. There is a fan-led petition to get Jax kicked off the show. At least count, the petition had almost 3,000 signatures.
Complaints against Jax include former VPR star Billie Lee’s accusation that Jax wouldn’t film with her because she’s Trans. Other racist, homophobic and generally awful tweets from the VPR star have resurfaced on Twitter thanks to internet sleuths.
Regardless of whether VPR returns, fans can see Stassi, Kristen, et al. one last time tonight, Tuesday, June 19. The final part of the Vanderpump Rules Season 8 reunion airs tonight.
Bravo is airing the episode one hour earlier than normal, so check your local listings for what time it hits the airwaves.
