Sunday night she joined stars on stage at the Glamour Women of the Year summit, before the awards.
Stassi talked about her journey from 'bitch' to fan favorite in her panel, titled Go Big: 'I Listened to My Inner A**hole.'
'It's been my experience that women who go after and get what they want are often criticized,' she said. 'Then all of a sudden — in both our culture and in fan reactions — there was a shift. People went from hating me to loving me for the same reasons.
'In season one, people hated the way I spoke. Now I'm praised for my conviction. In season one, people said I was mean and entitled. Now I'm praised for being unapologetically honest.'
