Stassi Schroeder listened to Bethenny Frankel’s interview with Raquel Leviss — and she or he had some points with how the duo talked about Ariana Madix.
“It was virtually like Bethenny was attempting to make Ariana look unhealthy,” Stassi, 35, stated of Bethenny’s three-part sit-down with Raquel, 28. “It’s like, that’s not the route we needs to be taking proper now. Ariana hasn’t carried out something incorrect.”
Stassi additionally questioned why Bethenny, 52, appeared to place a lot inventory in the truth that Ariana, 38, continues to be residing with ex-boyfriend Tom Sandoval. “What is that this? Making an attempt to say we weren’t that good of mates, Ariana’s making a lot cash now, she’s nonetheless residing with Sandoval,” Stassi stated throughout the Wednesday, August 23, episode of her “Straight Up With Stassi” podcast. “She’s not residing with Sandoval as a result of she’s forgiven him. She’s residing with Sandoval as a result of she’s like, ‘That is my home too and I refuse to depart my own residence,’ and Sandoval is being a gaslighting prick motherf–ker who’s refusing to depart.”
Us Weekly confirmed in March that Ariana and Sandoval, 41, referred to as it quits after Sandoval was caught having an affair with their Vanderpump Guidelines costar Raquel. The previous couple are nonetheless residing within the dwelling they bought collectively in 2019, however Ariana has stated they struggle to not cross paths whereas on the property.
Stassi, for her half, thought it was odd that Bethenny appeared unaware of the the explanation why Ariana and Sandoval would nonetheless be residing collectively after their break up.
“Bethenny, shut up,” Stassi stated. “That is one other problem that I had. I perceive Bethenny taking this interview. What I don’t perceive is how she didn’t — when she came upon she was gonna interview [Raquel] — go and binge-watch seasons 1 by means of f–king 10 in order that she knew every part and do her analysis. It was lazy. It was a lazy f–king interview. Simply listening to her speak the way in which Bethenny talked about Ariana and Sandoval residing collectively, that was a lazy interview. She didn’t do her analysis. She doesn’t perceive something.”
Stassi went on to query Bethenny’s declare that her interns earn more money than Raquel does for Pump Guidelines. “It’s sort of annoying how [Bethenny] speaks with a lot authority when clearly she has not carried out her analysis about so many various issues,” Stassi stated. “Even nearly [Raquel] and the way a lot she bought paid. I don’t know what [Raquel] bought paid. I really don’t.”
In the course of the interview, Raquel lamented the truth that she hadn’t made any more money within the aftermath of Scandoval although the drama boosted Pump Guidelines’ rankings.
“It’s my understanding that you just receives a commission in a 12 months lower than my interns receives a commission,” Bethenny stated, alleging that Raquel “can’t even afford to pay” for the psychological well being therapy she simply obtained within the wake of the drama.
Lisa Vanderpump later claimed that Raquel was paid $361,000 for season 10 of Pump Guidelines, however Stassi thinks that quantity sounds too random to be actual. “That makes me assume that it’s pretend. That appears like anyone who’s like, ‘We have to make up a quantity,’” she quipped. “Both means, I don’t assume [Raquel’s] level was that she didn’t make something from this season. I believe it was [that] she hasn’t made something since.”
