Ariana Madix and Stassi Schroeder had dueling birthday parties on Vanderpump Rules – one ended with kisses and the other ended in boozy chaos.
Madix threw a “Kings & Queens” themed bash while Schroeder went with a dark “Murder” theme. The two parties couldn’t have been more different.
Schroeder’s birthday was a total disaster.
Before her party, she admitted that her boyfriend, Patrick Meagher, had blocked her during his solo trip to Amsterdam. “We were on the phone and I tried to come onto him, by sexting, and he turned me down. I got angry, started a fight and I told him I was going to go with someone else. So he blocked me.”
However, she did invite him to her birthday party.
“He didn’t bother to dress up or have anything to do with the theme but at least he’s here,” Schroeder said. “I feel like I’m walking on eggshells with Patrick and the only way I can deal with the pressure and stress of this is to drink.”
Patrick himself told her friends Katie Maloney and Brittany Cartwright that their relationship was unconventional.
“She can bang other dudes, but she can’t date other dudes,” he said.
The stripper from Maloney’s wedding came to the party and when she offered “a** shots” to the girls Schroeder freaked out.
“I wanted Arielle to be here as an actual guest, not as a human serving tray,” Schroeder said, and stormed out of the party.
Schroeder admitted she was nervous about her boyfriend and “I’m really f**ked up on Adderall and tequila.”
Schroeder ripped into Maloney and Kristen Doute, screaming at them “I’m so f**king annoyed by how everything turned out. Go f**k yourselves. Tell Patrick I’m leaving.”
Calling her a “spoiled princess brat,” her friends dismissed her drama, bashing her for “Once again birthday f**king princess.”
Madix’ party couldn’t have been any different.
Prior to the event, she admitted that she “didn’t have sex” with her boyfriend, Tom Sandoval, and dropped a bombshell about her massive insecurities.
“I don’t want anyone looking at or touching my vagina,” Madix said. “I’m not a big fan of my neither regions. I don’t go down there myself. Tom is much more interested in this than I am,” she said. She sought help with a therapist before the party, telling her about her issues.
“My ex said ‘You should go to the doctor. There is something wrong with you,’ for normal vaginal functions. He never took a sex ed class.”
Madix said she loved Sandoval, that he was her “romantic partner, a friend, a life partner,” but that she did not want to have children with him. “I really do not want to give birth that to me is oh my God, no thank you. You really want to see that gross shit come out of my vagina?”
She told the therapist that she was looking for help. “I want to be naked in front of my boyfriend without being so insecure. I’m just frozen.”
Sandoval made her breakfast on her birthday and was super supportive about the therapy.
“I’m a work in progress and I’m trying to figure it out. It means a lot that you stick around,” Madix told him, and he brought up their previously stellar sex life. “You were having multiple orgasms,” he told her.
“I don’t know that that is true,” she says but he won’t back down. “I know it is true.”
Madix understood Sandoval’s feelings, saying: “I know it must be confusing for Tom. Which Ariana is he going to get? The fun twerking Ariana or the me who is disgusted by my body and never wants to have sex again?”
But the relationship turned around at her party. Surrounded by a cheerful group including LaLa Kent, James Kennedy and Scheana Marie, her queen costume was golden and glittery and her friends cheered when she walked in.
While Sandoval went all out with a king costume, a cake and a toast to his girlfriend and they committed to spending more time together to getting their sex life back on track.
“If you treat your friends like they’re all a queen, they’ll treat you like royalty. If you treat your friends like a spoiled baby princess they’ll think you’re an a**hole,” Madix said in a slam to Schroeder.
