Why only two Vanderpump Rules role players attend Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clarkis getting married in Rome?
After the intimate ceremony Thursday, an insider explains why Stassi and her husband chose to keep their wedding small, with a number of their former co-stars, including Scheana Shay, Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, Kristen Douteand Lala Kentnowhere to be seen.
“Stassi had to cut off her guest list,” a source told Us Weekly on May 11. “Some of her family, friends and former pastors, including Scheana, had to be invited.”
After arriving in Italy days earlier, Stassi, Beau and their 16-month-old daughter, Hartford Charlie Rose Clarkwas joined by family, including each of their sisters, and friends, including Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartzwho announced plans for divorce, for a bachelorette party on Tuesday and for a welcoming dinner on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, back in the United States, Scheana was in New York for a live recording of her Scheananigans podcast, Lala was in Nashville for her Give Them Lala Live tour, and Brittany and Kristen spent time together before Kristen’s trip to Hawaii with a boyfriend Alex Menache.
James Kennedy, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madixand Raquel Leviss was also absent.
In other news, Stassi’s status as a best-selling author is called into question after the former reality star took to her Instagram page with a video of herself crying and declaring that her second book, Off with My Head: The Definitive Basic B-tch Handbook to Surviving Rock Bottomended up on the New York Times bestseller list.
“Holy sh * t. Off With My Head is a New York Times bestseller !!! OMG. It feels awfully unreal to be recognized twice … and please ignore the foils. Being blonde is a high maintenance, ”Stassi endorsed her post and gave a nod to her first book, Next level Basic: The definitive basic bitch handbook.
Also at her post, Stassi included a screenshot of the list, which contains the word “gallery” and a dagger symbol.
According to Radar Online, some believe Stassi used a shady trick to get herself on the number eight top-selling spot because the dagger seen on her list indicates that the author made the list due to bulk orders. And as Gawker explained, bulk orders may indicate that large orders of the book were placed by “those with a share in the book’s success.”
