Stassi Schroeder: ‘I definitely get IVs on the reg’ to handle constant hangovers

Vanderpump Cocktail Garden Opening

Stassi Schroeder is on Vanderpump Rules. The reason why I know her name is because she’s an idiot who does and says idiotic things. In 2017, she mocked #MeToo victims on her podcast. Last year, there was an online campaign to have her fired from Pump Rules because she jokingly tagged her look as “Nazi Chic.” I don’t watch Vanderpump Rules but from what I gather, it’s a show where young, pretty people drink and fight a lot. Stassi recently appeared on a SiriusXM show where she was asked about all of the boozing that happens on the show and how she recovers.

Stassi Schroeder can’t drink the way she used to. The “Vanderpump Rules” star told Michelle Collins on her SiriusXM show, “The Michelle Collins Show,” that she regularly uses IVs to keep up with her costars after a night of drinking.

“You drink so much,” Collins began.

“I do,” Schroeder, 30, agreed.

“And not just you, you guys are basically functioning alchies,” Collins continued, later adding, “You are all very slim, for the most part, how do you guys do so many shots … where they are pounding the liquor … I know youth has something to do with it … How do you do that and not just want to die the next day?”

“Oh, ever since I turned 30 things have changed,” Schroeder answered. “I turned 30 and I can’t hang as much as I can. Like, I definitely get IVs on the reg. I get them to come to my house. You just go on on a website called The IV Doc and people will actually travel to your home or hotel and you can get an IV. I do it for anything. Like, if I’m getting sick, if I’m about to go on a plane. I got one before I came here because they have a jet lag one so you can get B12, vitamins all that stuff, but for a hangover it really does help.”

“Do you truly think that works, or is it some new wave GOOP-y thing where they are just tricking next level basic girls into spending their money?” Collins asked, playing around with Schroeder’s book title, “Next Level Basic: The Definitive Basic Bitch Handbook.”

“If it’s a placebo effect, I’m totally ok with it!” Schroeder affirmed.

People who are so casual about getting IV drips are insane to me. But that’s probably because I hate needles and I hate the feel of something (like an IV) in my arm. I donate blood but that’s different – I can stand it as long as I don’t look at the needle in my arm, basically, and I do it because I know it’s a good thing to do. But to drink and drink and drink to the point where you’re a regular user of IV-vitamins as a hangover cure? It feels like the wrong thing is being treated. That being said, hangovers are mostly about dehydration, so I can see (medically) an IV drip would help with a hangover. It’s the same reason why after a night of drinking, you should just drink a sh-t ton of water or Gatorade: to rehydrate. It’s as simple as that. No needles necessary, just DRINK WATER good lord.

    My knowledge of this person is the same as the poster’s, except I remember when she and her family were on the awful Amazing Race families edition. So she’s been trained as a fame whore since she was young.

    I started seeing her mentions go up on Twitter, mainly Basics in their 20s and 30s who treat her as some hero. SMDH.

    If you’re using IVs to recover from hangovers, you need to question your choices.

  2. Kimma1216 says:

    I actually stopped drinking at 40 because I couldn’t handle the horrible hangovers anymore. They were getting worse with age..It just wasn’t worth it anymore. Not to mention I lost about 10lbs quickly after stopping. If you really need to drink so bad that you have to get IVs the next day..you might want to rethink your lifestyle.

  3. minx says:

    Someone needs to tell her that she looks older than 30 and obviously has a drinking problem. IVs can only do so much.

    • Mego says:

      When you get iv’s to manage your hangover symptoms there’s a problem for sure. It amazes me that iv’s can be administered at all for this purpose. Scary.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      These people care so much about their looks but they drink like fish. Nothing ages a person faster than too much booze. Well, maybe meth. Lol

    • Kitten says:

      Eh. My boyfriend is a paramedic and one day I had an awful hangover from a friend’s 40th birthday bash and we had an important protest to attend that morning. So he gave me a shot on anti-nausea medication and an IV and I felt 100% better afterwards.

      So no, I don’t have a “drinking problem” but I DO take advantage of dating a medical professional from time-to-time lol. Sue me. *shrugs*

      • minx says:

        That doesn’t sound like what this person is doing. She sounds like she’s drunk all day every day.

  4. LahdidahBaby says:

    The Vanderpump Rules crowd make superficial look profound.

  5. Mgsota says:

    Pedialyte!

    • KidV says:

      Exactly! Get those electrolytes in. I don’t do sugar so I usually just add sodium and potassium to my water.

  6. Ann says:

    I’ve always wanted to try this. I would think they make you feel really good, hang over or not. Lol at the podcast host asking her if this is “Goop-y” as a synonym for bullshit.

  7. Heather says:

    There’s a medical basis for this. It’s called a “banana bag” because it’s yellow. In the ER we give it to the raging alcoholics who get bussed in after collapsing outside a bar. (And also for nutritional deficiencies on medical floors, especially the ICU). All the IVs in the world won’t save her liver though. She’ll be as yellow as the banana bag due to liver failure caused by chronic alcoholism soon enough, which is sad. And sadly she is right, there are “doctors” who will give an IV for any thing if paid enough.

    • Carol says:

      Exactly. This girl can bounce back after using these banana bags but she has no idea what she is doing to her pancreas, not to mention her liver. If she continues like this, by the time she’s 40 she won’t be worried about drinking anymore because she’ll have a lifetime of other serious health issues to grapple with.

  8. kellybean says:

    For anyone interested in wasting a few minutes acquainting themselves with what a wretched person she is, look no further than her comments on her podcast about race and the #metoo mivement. She also found it very charming and witty to label a picture of one of her outfits ” Nazi chic.”

    This entitled brat is far from your run of the mill vapid yet harmless reality star. It’s so disappointing that she has so many fans and her book is sold out virtually everywhere.
    Edit: So sorry I didn’t read the post first as I was already aware of the the hangover situation and, therefore, repeated basically everything Kaiser said .

  9. lucy2 says:

    Sure, that doesn’t sound problematic at all!
    If you are drinking to the point of needing IVs, and often, that is not functioning. That is alcoholism, and clearly it’s impacting this person’s life.

  10. Veronica S. says:

    So…alcoholism? That’s what we call alcoholism.

    Also, constant IVs are not good for anyone. You will wear out and damage the veins over time.

  11. Jen says:

    I have no fear of needles whatsoever. I’ve donated blood hundreds of times, and I’m the one squeezing the ball to make it pump out faster. But this? There is an industry thriving because functioning alcoholics keep them afloat? Um, no. Just no.

  12. Notyouraveragehousewife says:

    I quit drinking years ago b/c my hangovers have been horrible since I started drinking as a teenager. I vomit for at least 24 hours and can’t keep anything down. I feel like an IV would be ideal for someone like me since I can’t even keep water down during a hangover. I would never drink again though anyway. So not worth it. It’s like money down the drain. Well, toilet.

  13. Nancypants says:

    Okay, true story:
    You know I used to deploy in the military – a lot.

    I often went in support of the Search & Rescue men.
    Women can’t be S&R but we go in support depending on career field such as helicopter mechanic, Veterinarian (working dogs), First SGT, and so on.

    We had a stopover in Spain for a few days on our way home from the Middle East and it was a ‘plane check but also R&R and I watched the Medics give our Navigator an IV to sober him up before we boarded the ‘plane.
    Jeez! I was a little concerned.

    This Navigator was a Captain and about 35.
    If this girl already needs IVs, she’s in trouble.

  14. Jaded says:

    Why do these people have to drink to such excess? A couple of glasses of wine and I’m fine, don’t want any more. If she keeps this up much longer she’s going to end up with serious liver/pancreas damage. Dumb twat….

  15. Bronson says:

    Take glutathione with vitamin C and drink water while you’re boozing. I haven’t had a hangover in years.

    Hangovers are caused by dehydration AND liver toxicity. The glutathione detoxes your liver as you drink and also protects it from the damaging effects of alcohol.
