Bravo reality star Stassi Schroeder caught up with FOX411 Friday, just days after she had breast reduction surgery.

“It was only like three days ago, I’m in a lot of pain,” she told us at the Lupus LA Hollywood Bag Ladies Luncheon. “They are strapped in there nice and tight but I’m hanging in there right now.”

Schroeder, best known for her rocky relationship with former boss Lisa Vanderpump, explained her reduction was necessary for her to feel better about herself.

“I got breasts when I was 13 years old, and when I say breasts I mean double D boobs and they hurt and my back hurt,” she explained. “When I would wear sports bras and run I would get scabs and I didn’t feel very attractive. It was so hard to find dresses because you had to get everything tailored. I just wanted to feel better about myself and I finally made the decision and I’m happy with it.”
 
The 27-year-old former “Vanderpump Rules” star said her relationship with fellow reality star Vanderpump is “evolving.” She quit the show after the third season, however, viewers can expect to see an appearance by Schroeder in the fourth season.

“You’re going to see a whole different side of me,” she said. “Of course the old Stassi is still there but I go through a rock bottom situation so you see a different side.”
