Guess Who Stassi Schroeder from ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Spent Thanksgiving With?
Whoever said that time heals all wounds is right. Because Stassi Schroeder from Vanderpump Rules had Thanksgiving with someone she had severe disdain for not that long ago.
Schroeder posted a photo of her Thanksgiving feast, complete with her new beau Beau Clark and newly engaged couple, Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor. Jax Taylor? Seriously? Schroeder captioned the image with, “Why weren’t the cameras here? #framily.”
Only a few years ago Schroeder and Taylor were a hot and heavy couple. They were seriously dating when the show launched in January 2013.
But Taylor’s wandering eyes, not to mention infidelity, ripped the couple apart. They tried to reconcile, with Taylor even getting Schroder’s name tattooed on his arm. But ultimately the couple didn’t work. After a few more awkward years where the pair couldn’t stand each other, they finally seem at peace with each other. And actually even seem to like each other. So how did the Vanderpump kids get to this point?
The irony was not lost on the fans
Schroeder’s post blew up almost immediately after she posted it. One follower commented, “It is so funny how the world works. A couple years ago I would have NEVER thought you would purposefully spend Thanksgiving with @mrjaxtaylor. Now look at you guys!! Happy Thanksgiving to you all!!” While another agreed and said, “Who would have ever thought season 1 you would be sitting here with Jax and your significant others. Blows my mind. So cool. Wish Jax still had that cable knit sweater tho.”
Another follower added, “I hope one day I can have thanksgiving with my ex and his fiancé this is goals.”
But only a year ago Schroeder had her doubts

Like with Schroeder, Taylor cheated on Cartwright. In December 2017, Schroeder told People she wasn’t sure if Taylor was capable of ever being faithful. “It might be a lost cause … right now,” she said. When asked which Vanderpump Rules cast member would marry next, Schroeder didn’t think it would be Taylor.
“Honestly, I think Scheana Marie will get married again first before the rest of us,” she said. And that Taylor was more interested in stirring up drama than anything else. “Jax always,” she said. “But this season is particularly special because there is a lot going on. There’s so many different dynamics and so many different fights that are going on and people that are stirring the pot.”
And Schroeder’s friendship with Taylor evolved slowly
Schroeder discussed her relationship with Taylor last year on Bravo’s Daily Dish podcast. When asked where their friendship stood she said, “I’m not gonna like go hang out with him. I wouldn’t choose to sit next to him at a dinner, but yes, we’re friends.” She says she likes the fact that they’ve gotten past everything. “I know what to expect from him.”
And now the former couple have actually become good enough friends to spend Thanksgiving together. Who knows, maybe next year Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix will invite Kristen Doute over? Or not.
