The only thing that might outweigh Stassi Schroeder’s love of basic things is scary things.
The Vanderpump Rules star writes all about her interest in the paranormal in her New York Times best-selling book, Next Level Basic: The Definitive Basic B***h Handbook. So, when Schroeder dropped by the ET studios, we broke out the Ouija board in hopes of connecting with some spirits for some “next level basic” guidance on Schroeder’s life. Now, Schroeder quickly made it clear that the spirits likely wouldn’t come through on camera. Even if they had, they wouldn’t necessarily be helpful. According to Schroeder, only "d**k spirits" come through this way.
"Yeah, just douchebags," she says. "Like bored ghosts that really don't know what's up, and they're just like, ‘I don’t know what to do, so I'm just gonna go f**k with people.’ It's never actually who you want to connect with. So, if you're doing the Ouija board, you can't be like, ‘I want to contact this person.’ If they say they are that person, they are lying."
As Schroeder predicted, no spirits were willing to come through on camera.
"You really got to commit," she instructs. "Like, you can't have a TV crew around you. You really, actually have to be alone, and it takes a while. A lot of the time, it takes a while. You sit there and you're like 'Are we really gonna continue? Are we really gonna keep trying?’ I've sat there for an hour before."
For the sake of time, we continued on with the Ouija Q&A, just this time, Schroeder took control of the board. When asked, will her boyfriend, Beau Clark, propose this year, the 30-year-old spelled out, "Maybe."
"I don't know when he's gonna propose," she admits. "It could come any time, or he could wait. I don't know. I'm trying not to be a pusher, ‘cause I tend to do that. But like, if he wants to I'm totally OK with that."
Schroeder says, for now, she’s just grateful their relationship survived a full season of reality TV.

'Pump Rules': Stassi Schroeder Explains Why Boyfriend Beau Clark Is 'the One' (Exclusive)
"Watching your intimate, drunken arguments with your significant other is never gonna be fun," she shares. "But I've always been somebody who said, when I do reality TV, you have to show everything. You can't just only show the good and just hope the people are gonna be interested. I feel like I owe it to my viewers to show every side of me. You know, they've been through this journey, with all of our lives, and if I were to hide the things that suck about me that wouldn't be fair."
And Schroeder says she’s down for more reality TV. In fact, per her answer on the board, a lot more. She says she wants to do Vanderpump Rulesfor infiniti, or "as long as it will go on."
"We can be, like, The Golden Girls, you know what I mean?" she says. "Our husbands are all dead, our children are grown...and we're still eating goat cheese balls at SUR."
"Listen, where there's a will, there's a way," she adds. "And my will is very strong."
Still, Schroeder acknowledges the show likely has to change if it is to keep going on forever.
"It has to follow what's really going on in our lives," she notes. "Nothing ever stays the same, so I feel like it's unfair to expect that like, you know, Lala [Kent's] still gonna be hosting at SUR for 20 more years when she's flying on a private jet every single day. Like, do [my co-stars] go in there an work at SUR? Yeah, but it's for a very short amount of time, ‘cause they can't handle it. It's too many people asking [for pictures]."
"The thing is, regardless of whether the cameras were around, we would all still be doing the same things with each other," she continues. "We're still our chosen family. So if Bravo wants to keep following that, then I'm so down for that."
Schroeder doesn’t think adding “new blood” is the answer to keeping Pump Rules fresh, though. There are many rumors out there that a new crop of SUR-vers will be introduced sooner rather than later on the Bravo hit.
"Can't we just, like, split off into two different shows?" she asks. "They can have their own thing and, you know, if people want to see young, sexy people at SUR, great! I would watch it. But I'm not young, sexy and at SUR any more. I'm just, like, older and sexy and at my apartment."
Schroeder’s book, Next Level Basic, is out now, while the Vanderpump Rules season seven finale airs Monday at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo. For more on Schroeder -- including her dream of having her own cult -- check out the videos above and below.
