Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder has a new boyfriend, and he will appear on the show in the upcoming season. Beau Clark will probably be earning a nice paycheck for his appearances on VPR, and according to a new report, he needs the money.
Radar Online is reporting that Clark filed bankruptcy a few years back because he was flat broke. The 38-year-old had over $55,000 in credit card debt to lenders like Citibank and American Express when he filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in May 2012.
At that time, Clark claimed that he was earning a little over $3,000 a month, and his assets totaled $2,989.83. However, he had liabilities totaling $62,147.33. His assets included $644 in his checking account plus some miscellaneous furnishing, clothing, photography equipment, and carpenter tools.
The court required Clark to go through credit counseling, and then they closed the bankruptcy case on September 13, 2012.
In the past six years, Clark has worked to overcome his financial problems. He has achieved success in Hollywood as an artist and commercial casting agent. He also worked as an actor on films like DarkWolf and The Revenant.
After Schroeder split with her on again, off again boyfriend Patrick Meagher last summer, she started dating Clark in August 2017. When their romance began, there were reports that several of Schroeder’s castmates thought it was a desperate attempt to get her own spin-off, and the relationship was destined to end in disaster.
And now that he will be part of the cast this season, the cast is not happy.
“Stassi’s boyfriend joining the show has a lot of cast members really p****d off,” says an on-set source, adding, “They feel like she is just desperate to get a spin-off.”
But, Schroeder is excited about Clark joining the cast, even though she is telling everyone that he didn’t want to be on the show. However, the insider says that no one believes Schroeder, and they think that he has been eyeing a spot on VPR since they started dating.
Clark says that he never watched an episode of the Bravo reality show before he started dating Schroeder. And, he claims that he was not a fan of hers when Katie Maloney and Kristen Doute set them up.
“I just scanned through the pictures, and I was like, ‘The bleach blonde hair, she’s probably got Botox, she’s probably got fake boobs.’ And I was like, ‘She probably goes to Nightingale and gets table service, bottle service, whatever you call it. Just not my cup of tea at all,’” Clark said on Schroeder’s podcast, Straight Up with Stassi, back in February.
Last week, Stassi Schroeder posted a pic of herself with Beau Clark while they filmed the opener for the upcoming season of VPR. She captioned the shot, “Baby’s first credits.”
New episodes of Vanderpump Rules will return to Bravo later this year.
