It's still a little hard for us to believe that Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder — who loves the sun and was never one to turn down, say, a dip in a rooftop pool  is now a New Yorker. And she is revealing how she has been handling the move. 

Stassi has quit her job at SUR and is living in the Big Apple with boyfriend Patrick Meagher, telling Fab Fit Fun that she loves NYC. "[The transition to NYC] has been really nice and only solidifies my choice to be here instead of L.A.," she reveals. "I have found that New Yorkers are super friendly and open-minded, so it hasn’t been difficult to meet new people."

She also reveals details about her relationship. "Being in such a healthy and normal relationship makes it easy to be happy," Stassi divulges. "My boyfriend, Patrick, has helped me realize what I am worth and that I deserve happiness. Being with him has helped me find myself, and I am now in this amazing city where I feel very much at home."

It's great to hear that Stassi is doing so well! We never thought we'd see her leave L.A., but it appears to have been for the best.

Are you surprised that Stassi is so happy in NYC and is in such a stable relationship?
