Brittany Cartwright says she feels ‘bad’ about not attending Stassi Schroeder’s wedding in Italy


‘I was breaking out in hives’: Brittany Cartwright reveals she still feels ‘bad’ about not attending Stassi Schroeder’s wedding in Italy amid their ongoing rift

Vanderpump Rules alum Brittany Cartwright revealed she still feels ‘guilty’ for not attending Stassi Schroeder’s lavish Italian wedding to agent Beau Clark on May 12.

During Friday’s episode of Scheana Shay’s podcast, Scheananigans with Scheana Shay, the reality star, 33, opened up about how some texts sent by her husband Jax Taylor to the couple contributed to the falling-out with her longtime pal, 34.

Tension between her and Schroeder rose when Taylor, 42, expressed ‘his doubts’ about whether he and Cartwright would be able to attend the ceremony.

‘I don’t actually know what all of the text messages were. I, personally, never sent any text messages,’ Cartwright explained to Scheana. ‘I will make that very clear, because I would never do that to them. I was planning on going 1000, 100 percent.’ 

She continued: ‘Jax started getting in his head, getting worked up about flying with the baby… You know how Jax is, he’ll just text and rage text…’ 

‘He didn’t really think he wanted to go anymore. He was telling [Stassi and Beau’s] best friend Rob or something and [he] ended up showing them the message,’ the mom-of-one continued.

The ex Bravo star pointed out her spouse ‘shouldn’t have done it’ and his behavior was ‘very’ upsetting. 

Earlier this month, Cartwright confirmed she and Schroeder are feuding after they were no-shows at Stassi’s big Italian wedding.

‘I apologized like, ‘I’m so sorry we’re still planning on coming,” Taylor’s wife recalled. ‘[Stassi and Beau] got really mad at both of us and didn’t really talk to us for a couple of weeks … We didn’t hardly hear from them, and I kept saying, ‘I’m so sorry that he did that.” 

Overall, Cartwright called the drama ‘nerve wracking’ and said she ‘was breaking out in hives’ from the stress.

‘I felt so bad, and I still feel bad,’ Cartwright noted. ‘I’m just trying to give her time. Maybe in like a couple [of] months, I don’t know, maybe we’ll be able one day and talk it over.’ 

At this point, Scheana suggested that Schroeder ‘should have more compassion for the situation’ and that Cartwright attended her first wedding to Clark in September 2020.

‘Let’s point out the fact that you were at her wedding, her real wedding, her first wedding,’ Scheana, 37, reminded listeners. ‘You were there. You helped plan. This is a second wedding celebration out of country. You have a child. Your mom just lost a dear friend. You didn’t have a passport [for Cruz] and you were still trying to get there up until the last day.’

Cartwright says she has ‘reached out since the wedding’ but hasn’t ‘gotten any response just yet.’ 

‘ll try again in a couple weeks or something. I don’t know. I just like to make things right,’ she concluded.  

On June 14, Cartwright revealed she had done ‘everything in her power’ to attend the wedding and said she hopes that they can ‘figure this out’ while appearing on the Betches Moms podcast.

Recently, Stassi revealed on her own podcast that Jax and Brittany were in the doghouse because they said they were attending the wedding but told friends the exact opposite. Cartwright, however, explained that things were not so black and white.

‘There’s some rifts going on right now,’ Brittany said. ‘With me and Stassi, there’s some things going on, which I hate. I love her to pieces and I wish we could figure this out.’ 

Brittany insisted that she and Jax ‘wanted to be there’ and had never pretended they were going, which Stassi accused them of doing.

‘I would never in a million years do something like that on purpose,’ Cartwright said. ‘We had actual reasons why we couldn’t go that were not talked about.’

She went on the explain that the passport they had ordered for their one-year-old son had not arrived in time for the trip and she had a death in the family, which required her mom to travel back to Kentucky.

‘But I know, like, having to wait to the last minute and not being able to be there for someone who I really do think of as one of my best friends, like, I feel terrible about and I’m truly sorry,’ she said remorsefully. ‘And I hope that one day, we’ll be able to talk about this and figure it all out. Because I do want our kids to grow up together.’

Brittany, who formerly co-starred on Vanderpump Rules with Schroeder, said she had a lot of love for Stassi and Beau.

‘She looked amazing at her wedding. I mean, they looked absolutely incredible,’ she mused. ‘And I know it would have been so fun to be there.’

‘At the end of the day, I just hope that they know, like, I did not wait to the last minute because I knew I was going to not be there for weeks. That was not the case,’ she explained that she still tried to get there ‘up until the very last minute.’

‘I just felt terrible about it altogether because that’s just not my personality, I would never try to put my friend in that situation,’ Brittany said. 

Stassi and Brittany haven’t had a chance to hash things out in private but Schroeder did open up about her former co-stars no-showing at her nuptials on her The Good, the Bad and the Baby podcast.   

The NYT best-selling author said during a recent episode that Jax and Brittany had RSVP’d yes to her wedding but her husband saw screenshots where Jax claimed the couple was never going to show. 

‘We need to address this with them because I’m not playing this game,’ Stassi recalled saying a few weeks before the wedding. ‘I ordered all the stuff we needed to have in terms of seat assignments and the place cards. So I need to know if I need to quickly ask to get things rearranged.’

'At the end of the day, I just hope that they know, like, I did not wait to the last minute because I knew I was going to not be there for weeks. That was not the case,' Brittany explained, adding that despite knowing for sometime she wouldn't attend, she still tried to get there 'up until the very last minute.'

‘Good friends don’t do that,’ she added. ‘They don’t talk s**t about your wedding behind your back or pretend that they’re coming and give a list of reasons why they’re not coming to other people. Friends don’t do that to each other.’

Last month, Stassi said ‘I do’ for the second time at her dream wedding to husband Beau Clark in Italy.

The wedding guest list was slashed after she got fired from Vanderpump Rules – though Brittany and Jax had made the cut.

Schroeder’s wedding went from 200 guests to just 35 because things were ‘too expensive’, she said during a recent appearance on the Dear Media podcast, The Skinny Confidential.

'Good friends don't do that,' Stassi recently said of the no-show. 'They don't talk s**t about your wedding behind your back or pretend that they're coming and give a list of reasons why they're not coming to other people. Friends don't do that to each other.'

‘It was supposed to be on Vanderpump Rules,’ Stassi said, explaining that her wedding special would have served as a ‘bridge’ episode for a now defunct spin-off show.

Stassi actually took a producer from the show with her and Beau to Rome back in 2019 to scout locations for the hotel, rehearsal dinner space and wedding venue so they could secure the rights to film there.

The Off With My Head author revealed that the venues refused to let her cancel. At the same time, after her firing over a racism scandal, all of Stassi’s revenue streams – the show, her podcast and endorsements – all dried up 

‘Bravo didn’t pay for this s**t,’ she said, ‘like we paid for the s**t and the venues didn’t let us get out of it. Do we want to just eat this money and let it go? Or, like, do we want to, re-imagine what this wedding will look like and like still do it?’

Tom Sandoval and Scheana Shay were persona non grata at the swanky event. Scheana was one of the 70% that actually had her invite rescinded by the bride, while Sandoval was never invited. 

Katie Maloney, who is Stassi’s baby’s godmother, made the cut for the wedding – as did her soon-to-be ex Tom Schwartz. 

Kristen Doute – who was fired from the Bravo show alongside Stassi after falsely accusing black castmate Faith Sowers of theft to the police – was also absent from the wedding but had been invited.

Stassi and Beau started their romance towards the end of 2017 and they became engaged in July 2019. 

The two first officially wed in 2020 in a back yard with few in attendance due to COVID. They had to wait until 2022 to have a big, splashy wedding of their dreams with their friends in Italy. 

'Bravo didn't pay for this s**t,' she said, 'like we paid for the s**t and the venues didn't let us get out of it. Do we want to just eat this money and let it go? Or, like, do we want to, re-imagine what this wedding will look like and like still do it?'
