Stassi Schroeder and her ex-boyfriend Patrick Meagher have been off and on in their relationship over the past few years. Meagher was never shown on Schroeder’s reality show Vanderpump Rules … until this season. Unfortunately, Schroeder appears to be in the middle of a breakup on an episode in previews of the new season and she previously announced that Meagher dumped her on their anniversary. In August 2017, Us Weekly reports that Schroeder and Meagher were hours away from an anniversary trip to Mexico when they broke up. As a result, Schroeder brought her friend Rachel O’Brien on the vacation. At the time of the split, Schroeder aired her grievances on Twitter and wrote, “Broken up with on our anniversary after I planned a trip for us to Mexico. Call me Carrie Bradshaw. @rachaelnobrien you’re coming with me now.” Schroeder said that, although Meagher is a wonderful person, “We’ve had an up and down relationship from the beginning, and it was kind of our pattern obviously, to break up and make up. But this time was, to me, a shock. Like the real, full breakup.”
So, what made the couple get into a fight and break up on their anniversary? On Schroeder’s podcast Straight Up With Stassi, she explained, “We get into an argument on our anniversary — that he did not remember — our four-year anniversary. Granted, OK, we broke up for a really long time, but I mean, our four-year anniversary, we met four years ago on that day. Nothing new happened to where I would be broken up and jilted a day before our Mexican vacation for our anniversary that I only remembered.” Schroeder said that she tried to give Meagher a few hours to cool off and hoped he would change his mind about the break up, but he didn’t. While on the plane ride with her friend O’Brien to Mexico, Schroeder remembers thinking, “We get on the flight. Rachael is sitting next to me. Keep looking over every 2 seconds before she fell asleep, being like, ‘Yep, this should be Patrick, should be my romantic fucking flight. We should be cuddling and making out.’” Schroeder says that she misses ex Meagher all the time and that, “I legit thought that if I was gonna get married in my life that Patrick would be it.”
According to Bravo, Schroeder had even gone to therapy to better herself for her relationship, but fighting was a major issue. Schroeder revealed that, “I’m not innocent. I can be a terror when we fight. And I’ve started therapy. I feel like I’ve put in all the effort that I, I did my part, that’s what I feel like. I feel like I’ve done my part. This isn’t anything new. Like, once we get into a fight, and I try and keep my cool for so long. You know, with every single relationship, people know exactly how to get you upset. And he got me to that point, and I didn’t understand why.” Currently, Schroeder is single and on the dating scene.
