The Brent Shapiro Foundation 2022 Summer Spectacular Gala was a star-studded event in Beverly Hills last weekend and several ‘Vanderpump Rules’ stars attended as Lala Kent was the Spirit of Sobriety Honoree for the year.
The VPR star posted a photo of herself with co-stars Katie Maloney and Lisa Vanderpump as well as her former co-star Stassi Schroeder. Fans quickly noticed that Schroeder and Vanderpump were side-by-side in the photo and shared their reactions to the reunion.
Schroeder was fired after season 8 of “Vanderpump Rules” due to “backlash for racially insensitive comments and actions in the past,” according to Us Weekly. Here’s the picture:

Another commenter wrote: “The image that heals my soul is that Stassi is with Katie Lala and LVP.” Someone else agreed, “so happy to see the gang together with @lisavanderpump.”
One person commented: “I love seeing Lisa and Stassi together. Happy for you Lala.” Another added: “Love the picture of you all ladies!! We need a spin-off statistic!” Someone else wrote: “You four just feel good together.”
Someone asked on Reddit: “Do we think Stassi is trying to get her back into Lisa Vanderpump’s world? So great for Lala and Katie…Katie SERVES!” Another person wondered if something was “in the works.”
Schroeder and Vanderpump have both spoken about the state of affairs between the two following Schroeder’s departure from the show. According to Us Weekly, Schroeder was fired after Season 8, along with Max Boyens, Brett Caprioni and Kristen Doute “after being criticized for their racially insensitive comments and actions in the past.”
Schroeder discussed the situation with her former boss during an interview on the “Morning Toast” podcast in April 2022, saying the two women were cordial. “We’re friendly when we see each other, but it’s just that,” wrote the mother of one. The comments are similar to those made by Vanderpump a year earlier, in an August 2021 interview with Us Weekly. She said she contacted Schroeder:
“I wish them all the best, I do,” Vanderpump told the publication at the time. “I also think they needed to learn a lesson about, you know, respecting other people’s point of view and having empathy and looking at other people’s lives, not just through their own lens. Personally, I think a lot of people need to learn that.”
