What will Stassi Schroeder do to increase her net worth now?
It’s been a couple of months since the bombshell dropped that Stassi Schroeder, along with co-star Kristen Doute, was fired from the reality series Vanderpump Rules. The news came as a shock to fans who had seen Schroeder on the show since its beginning in 2013.
Stassi Schroeder’s net worth grew substantially over the years due in large to the six-figure annual salary she received during her time on Vanderpump Rules. Schroeder has spent limited time in the limelight since she was fired in June and her future prospects are still uncertain other than her currently growing baby bump.
While Vanderpump Rules is what made Stassi Schroeder a household name, she has a few side hustles that might prove to increase the reality star’s net worth. Here’s the tea on Stassi and life after Vanderpump Rules.
Stassi’s bad behavior
On June 9, 2020, Schroeder & Doute were fired from Vanderpump Rules after it was revealed they reported the only Black castmate on the show, Faith Stowers, to the police for a crime she didn’t commit. Along with getting fired from Vanderpump Rules, Schroeder lost several of her sponsorships, and her podcast, “Straight Up with Stassi”, disappeared from social media.
Schroeder had been criticized for racially charged actions in the past, including complaining about Black movements for equality within the entertainment industry and a photo she posted on Instagram with the caption “Nazi chic”.
Schroeder & Doute apologized for their actions towards Faith Stowers and offered a joint statement of regret which read, “Stassi and Kristen acknowledged what they did was wrong, have apologized and been punished. Without casting aside their actions or the impact of those actions, they want to move forward as part of the solution in ways that are productive, meaningful, and sincere.”
Not a lot of options
In the aftermath of losing her role on Vanderpump Rules, Stassi Schroeder’s net worth and future prospects are in question. As of 2020, Schroeder’s net worth is estimated at $2 million. Schroeder had multiple side hustles along with appearing on reality TV but it appears the scandal has also dried up those jobs.
At one point, Stassi Schroeder’s net worth was bolstered by her 2019 book Next Level Basic: The Definitive Basic Bitch Handbook, which was a New York Times bestseller, and by hosting her podcast. She had endorsements from brands like Billie, a shaving company, as well as Ritual, a vitamin company. Both companies dropped Schroeder after the news about her behavior with Stowers.
The one prospect Schroeder might have left is the wine company she started with her Vanderpump Rules co-stars Kristen Doute & Kate Maloney. The wine company, known as The Witches of Weho, proved to be popular with fans, though fighting between the co-founders has made it difficult to predict whether the company has a future.
Support from Lisa Vanderpump
Stassi Schroeder’s former employer Lisa Vanderpump spoke up about Schroeder & Doute’s dismissal from the show by expressing her sadness for losing the pair. Vanderpump explained her approval of the show’s strict response to discriminatory behavior but also advocated for second chances.
Lisa Vanderpump stated, “So, if it were up to me, I would like to see them go on but really have a better understanding of where they went wrong and really, you know — I’m not into just kind of getting rid of people, because they get it wrong.”
Baby on the way
There’s been no news on Stassi Schroeder’s plans for future work although one report claimed that both Schroeder & Doute called Andy Cohen in an attempt to convince him to rehire them for Vanderpump Rules.
For now, Schroeder’s social media has been focused on her pregnancy. Schroeder confirmed her pregnancy in June with her fiance Beau Clark. It’s the first child for the couple and the baby is due to be born the first week in January.
