The drama of Stassi Schroeder and Jax Taylor’s on-again, off-again relationship was a major storyline on the first season of Bravo’s new series Vanderpump Rules. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills spin-off made Stassi a household name, but she’s still balancing newfound fame with the real life of being an employee at Lisa Vanderpump’s SUR Restaurant.

 

Wetpaint chatted with Stassi Schroeder exclusively at the OK! Magazine So Sexy Party at the Mondrian in LA, where she told us finding a little peace in the midst of so much chaos isn’t always easy.

 

How has life changed since being on the show?

 

Honestly it’s just so weird because we are all still working at SUR and it’s just with fans of the show. It just gets so overwhelming. And there are times when I have to go to the bathroom like five times tonight just to calm down. And just breathe breathe breathe. It’s just so overwhelming.

 

Is there a constant line around the block at the restaurant all the time?

 

It's crazy. It's crazy.

 

Lisa's probably happy?

 

All of our bosses are really happy.

 

Do you think the next season will be a breeze now no matter what happens?

 

I'm hoping. I'm hoping!

 

You guys haven't started filming yet?

 

Not yet.

 

Is there anything that you would like to see differently or do differently on the next season?

 

I hope that people do see my softer side. I was so harsh and so biting and I hope that people don't think that I'm like that all the time. Fingers crossed. We will see what they decide to air!

 

Do you think that you guys will be more aware of the television cameras being there next season?

 

No. It's easy to forget about them. Because you film for so long that you forget.

 

Do you try at first?

 

You think so and then it goes right out the window!
