There isn’t a situation more embarrassing than having your credit card declined. Stassi Schroeder from Vanderpump Rules knows all about that; just ask her. After the show debuted in 2013 and became a hit, Stassi and her other co-stars wanted to treat themselves so they went on a shopping spree.
Everyone in the group knew it wasn’t a good idea to spend too much money, so they decided on only spending a couple of hundred dollars at Zara and other stores. However, it didn’t go quite as planned.
When speaking with Page Six, the reality star claims she remembers when she and her Vanderpump Rules co-stars wanted to splurge after getting their first big paycheck. She said to her friends, “let’s go to Zara and spend more than $100.”
When she went to pay her credit card bill, she realized it was way over her usual budget, and her card got declined because it was such an unusual transaction for her. “My card wasn’t used to me spending that,” the reality star remarked.

Katie Maloney and Kristen Doute, her two castmates, didn’t have the same problem thankfully, but they also ran into issues of their own. The 32-year-old bought a Gucci bag while Doute bought brand new Christian Louboutin high heels. However, for Doute, the moment she bought the shoes didn’t meet her expectations.
She walked into the store, and they supposedly said to her, “what are you doing here?” It turns out they didn’t expect to see a young woman buy such expensive shoes.
It’s been six years since the show first became a huge hit, and now, thankfully, Stassi and her castmates no longer have to worry about such a thing. Moreover, they have their very own wine brand, so the checks are continuing to come in.
That doesn’t mean Stassi hasn’t been without problems though. This past summer, Schroeder got into trouble when she commented on the #MeToo movement. Stassi said on her podcast that “nobody could force her to suck some guy’s d*ck,” and she subsequently had to apologize.
