Viewers of “Vanderpump Rules” got to see two toxic relationships play out other than Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor’s. Scheana Marie has already had her epiphany that her romance with Rob Valletta was more give than take. Now, Stassi Schroeder is taking time to reflect on her old love life.
Patrick Meagher and Stassi Shroeder have been on and off for years up until last year when he dumped her on their anniversary. The shocking move forced her to go on her Mexico vacation with her best friend instead of her boyfriend.
Patrick refused to appear on camera up until this season where he did not make a good impression with fans. During one of his first scenes with Stassi, fans notice how condescending he acting towards his girlfriend at the time. He was also accused of ‘mansplaining.’
To make things even worse, he refused to dress up for her themed birthday party and told her friends that he wouldn’t care if she slept with other people.
The event planner stopped by The Daily Dish podcast to open up about watching the relationship play out on TV.
“When you’re so deep in something — and you know, we were together on and off for four years, it’s a really long time — I couldn’t see it for what it was. Watching back is crazy. Lisa [Vanderpump] always tells us this: one of the great things about reality TV is it’s like a mirror,” the 29-year-old explained.
She added: “How did I not get mad that he didn’t dress up? And when he told Kristen [Doute] and Katie [Maloney-Schwartz] that I could bang other people just as long as it wasn’t an emotional relationship? Uh, wish he told me that to my face; I would have been hooking up with dudes for four years!”
She also talks about a scene that viewers of “VP” will see play out in the season finale where he meets Lisa Vanderpump and will come off as “the biggest douche.”
