It was back in March of last year that we first learned about the existence of a Stassi Schroeder sex tape

On an episode of Vanderpump Rules that was filmed back in the summer of 2013, Stassi revealed that she’d masturbated on a live webcam for a boyfriend who was out of town.

On the season 3 reunion show, we found out that the intimate moment was recorded without her knowledge, and the video had been shopped around to potential buyers.

On last night’s episode, we learned a bit about the identity of the D-bag who extorted $900 from Lisa Vanderpump by threatening to go public with the footage.

Needless to say, if you watch Vanderpump Rules online, you know just about everything about this tape except whether or not Stassi’s carpet matches the drapes. (We’re guessing she prefers linoleum.)

But for most fans, one big question remains: Who is this jerk that threatened to post Stassi’s solo sex tape online?

Well, after a bit of digging, we here at THG believe we can confidently reveal the answer:

But first we have to ask: Remember this douche?

That’s Frank Herlihy, the former Sur bartender whom Stassi was dating around the time she made the tape.

That’s not exactly conclusive evidence on its own, but on last night’s episode, Lisa revealed that the amateur extortionist was a former employee whom she had been forced to fire – which also describes Frank.

The only men we’ve seen Stassi get seriously involved with over the course of the series are Jax Taylor, her current boyfriend Patrick Meagher, and Frank.

We’re pretty sure those first two can be ruled out as suspects, which leaves Frank – who was not exactly a fan favorite to begin with – as the culprit.

Can we prove it beyond a reasonable doubt? No, but this ain’t Making a Murderer and Frank ain’t Steven Avery.

He’s just some D-bag who tried to extend his 15 minuted of fame by showing the world his ex’s handiwork. Gross.
