A new season of Vanderpump Rules is almost upon us.
It’s been seven months since we last checked in with the men and women of SUR, and a whole lot has changed in their lives in the interim.
For one thing, it seems barely a week went by without a new breakup rumor wending its way around social media.
Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright split shortly after their spinoff series, Jax and Brittany Take Kentucky, publicly exposed the many flaws in their relationship.
It’s also been reported that Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney have called it quits after less than a year of marriage, but that news didn’t come as much of a shock.
Those two have been exposing their flaws from day one.
Even Scheana Marie and Robert Valletta have broken up, despite maintaining the outward appearance of happiness until the very end.
But for all the Vanderpump romances that have gone south in the past year, perhaps none comes as a greater surprise than the breakup between Stassi Schroeder and Patrick Meagher.
Sure, they’d broken up and gotten back together in the past, but Stassi and Patrick really seemed to be in it for the long haul this time.
In fact, after several years as the show’s resident mystery man, Meagher finally agreed to appear on camera for Vanderpump Season 6.
The move was taken by many as a sign of commitment, the long-running reality show equivalent of putting a ring on it.
Sadly, Stassi and Patrick’s relationship melted under the glare of the spotlight, and he broke up with her on what would have been their third anniversary.
But don’t cry for SUR’s answer to Regina George–Stassi survived with the breakup with both her sharp sense of humor and her bangin’ body intact:
Stassi posted the above photo Instagram yesterday, along with a caption reading:
"That Kardashian ass tho."
Stassi’s not afraid of a little self-deprecation, nor does she have any qualms about showing off the faint scars from her breast reduction surgery.
It’s that attitude that’s made her the fan favorite on a show that’s loaded with big personalities.
And we’re sure Ms. Schroeder has a similarly seductive effect on her Tinder matches.
