‘Vanderpump Rules’ Star Stassi Schroeder: 'I Got Engaged in a Cemetery'

August 5, 2019

Stassi Schroeder has taken her relationship with Beau Clark to the next level, and she's opening up about some of the unique details surrounding the proposal.

The “Vanderpump Rules” star in an Instagram post last week that she engaged, and is now opening up about the quirky details surrounding the proposal on her RADIO.COM podcast, "Straight Up with Stassi."

"It was perfect," she says. "I got engaged in a cemetery."

Questions began to swirl around fans' minds. Why a cemetery? What were they doing there?

Schroeder explains that it all goes back to the Schroeder family mausoleum in New Orleans. Following the death of her grandmother, she realized she wanted to be buried in a mausoleum like her family, but not without Clark.

"I don't want to be buried separate from him, so I need to get my own mausoleum," she clarifies to her podcast listeners.

So the day of browsing began, and Schroeder unknowingly walked right into her own engagement. "I thought I was going mausoleum shopping," Schroeder explains. "I basically planned my own proposal because I had been telling him I wanted to go mausoleum shopping."

Meanwhile, last week, Stassi’s Bravo boss Andy Cohen was quick to congratulate the couple while also pointing out the eccentric location where Beau popped the question.

"Very happy for you both. And thank God he had the sense to propose at a cemetery,” the “Watch What Happens Live” host commented on the photo.

Clark also posted the romantic news by sharing a cute photo smooching his bride-to-be, which he captioned, "Sloppy Kisses 4 Life!"

So does this mean the cemetery portion of the festivities is over for the two? Schroeder thinks yes. "I'm going to have an elegant, intimate, small, romantic wedding," she says.

And while she'd love to have her engagement party "someplace haunted in LA," her wedding will be intimate and overseas. "I want my wedding to be small, but in Europe," she said.

Of course, there's the question on every bride's mind when they gear up to plan a wedding - how do you work out a budget? Schroeder reveals that the area she'll spend most of her money will be wardrobe.

"I think I want a lot of dresses, but will it take too much time to change and do outfit changes?," she asks. "I just wanna figure out how to wear as many dresses as I can."

While the newly engaged couple have been dating since February 2018, Stassi revealed in an earlier podcast episode her desire to start a family.

“I want to get pregnant, honestly before I even — I mean I have like more babies on the brain than I do getting married,” the 30-year-old said. “I’m really excited to be a mom.”

Stassi and Beau’s engagement comes on the heels of her ex-boyfriend and fellow “Vanderpump Rules” co-star Jax Taylor’s wedding to Brittany Cartwright in June.

While Schroeder wasn't eager to give too much away on her podcast, she assured fans that there would be a lot more details to behold when the episode of "Vanderpump Rules" airs.
