Intimate business! Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark flew to Italy earlier this week to celebrate their second wedding, but not all of their “Vanderpump Rules” colleagues made the trip.
When the 33-year-old author of Off With My Head and her 42-year-old husband landed in Rome on Monday, May 9, only Katie Maloney from the Bravo family was in the city.
Noticeably absent were Sheana Shay and Kristen Douthat, as well as Maloney’s estranged husband, Tom Schwartz. (Maloney, 35, and Schwartz, 39, announced their separation in March after more than a decade together.)
“Some of her family, friends and former colleagues, including Sheana, had to be recalled,” the insider says.
Vanderpump Rules alumni Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor didn’t seem to be in the eternal City as of Wednesday, May 11. Schwartz, for his part, flew to Italy just in time to join the team at a welcome party on Wednesday evening.
“Wedding glory, and then return to Los Angeles. Schwartz and Sandy are waiting,” co—founder Tom Tom wrote in his Instagram story on Wednesday along with a photo of pizza in town.
Schroeder and Clark had a backyard wedding in September 2020 after they had to postpone their initial plans to get married in Italy in October 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The duo, who have a 16-month-old daughter, Hartford, confirmed last month that they would have a second ceremony in Rome after travel restrictions were lifted.
The couple has been documenting their romantic getaway all week, including tours of the Pantheon and lunches at local restaurants with their loved ones. When the lovers first arrived in Italy, they said that Maloney’s friends, Rob Evors, Christina Kelly, Dylan Leong and Christopher Shanley were with them.
After a bachelorette party with Schroeder’s sister, Georgiana Gut, and Clark’s sister, Georgia Bardetti, on Tuesday, May 10, the author of Next Level Basic teased the couple’s welcome dinner on social media on Wednesday.
“We’re almost married,” Clark said in an Instagram Story video with his fiancee. “Well, we celebrated. Were married.”
Schroeder chimed in: “It’s a rehearsal dinner. Welcome dinner, whatever. We are a beautiful couple. We’re a damn beautiful couple.” Her husband added: “You are beautiful! What?”
Although Cartwright, 33, seems to be at home in Los Angeles, she admired Schroeder’s image at a rehearsal dinner. “Great ❤️ ,” she wrote on Instagram on Wednesday.
