Stassi Schroeder, one of the stars of Vanderpump Rules, still hasn’t completely forgiven ex-boyfriend Jax Taylor. At the end of the first season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills spin-off, Jax finally admitted he had cheated on Stassi and lied to her about it repeatedly.
Even though Stassi says Jax still has a lot of work to do to regain her trust again, they are working things through. Wetpaint had the chance to talk to the SUR restaurant server at OK! Magazine’s So Sexy party at the Mondrian in LA on April 17. While she and Jax are back on friendly terms, Stassi told us he has a long way to go if he ever hopes they’ll be a couple again in the future.
You and Jax right now, are you friends or are you giving it another shot?
We are friends. He's trying really really hard to win me back. I am trying to learn to trust him as a friend so if and when that day comes who knows?
And there was some stuff that came out in the lost footage where he was knocking your skills in the bedroom. Did really strain the friendship?
Oh my God! Because I know how Jax is. When he feels hurt and he was hurt about me being with Frank...he will bring up anything. You can say to fire back. Whether it's with me or one of his friends or Katie or Kristen... He knows exactly what to do. He always fired back. I was just like you're a dumbass!
How about the friendships since the show? Are you good with Katie and Kristen?
Yeah. It's like nothing ever happened with us. We've gotten so much stronger as a group of friends that I don't see how it would be possible for anything else come between us.
And I heard you saying that you are sort of the peacemaker of the group now?
I am. Everyone's fighting all the time and I'm just being calm and chill… Everyone's like what? What has happened to you? I'm like, I don't know. Am I growing up? I'm like what is this?
And being on the show watching yourself, do you think that contributed to that?
Maybe. After going through something that was so traumatic and so hard I thought this is easy now. Anything else is just like uh!
And you said this was the hardest summer of your life?
It was! It was the hardest. It was so hard that I can't even put it into words!
