There’s no doubt that there is a seismic shift happening in the world right now. And that shift isn’t stopped for reality stars. Recently, old interviews and podcasts have resurfaced, putting Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute on blast for their racist behavior. One of the most notable incidents of harm was towards Faith Stowers. Back then, Faith was the only woman of color on the cast. She ended up being dragged by all for sleeping with Jax Taylor while he was still with Brittany Cartwright. As if Jax had no responsibility in the matter!
But instead of leaving it be, Stassi and Kristen went even further and called the police on Faith, wrongfully accusing her of stealing. The resurfacing of these events have landed both Stassi in Kristen in very hot water. Stassi has lost multiple sponsors. She has also been dropped by both her PR firm and agent. Kristen might have no PR or agent to speak of but she isn’t off the hook. Kristen was forced to issue an apology on her Instagram. Now, they’ve both been fired. But Stassi and Kristen aren’t the only ones getting called out.
Lisa Vanderpump has long positioned herself as an LBGQIA ally and advocate for animal rights. In light of George Floyd’s death, she posted a quote on Instagram to support the Black Lives Matter movement. Some people (myself included) aren’t buying it.
Faith has decided to speak out about her feelings on the “Red Flags Make Cute Scarves” podcast, and she did not hold back. As reported by Page Six, Faith said, “Lisa does a lot for the LGBTQ community and support, and she does a lot for dogs all across the world to try to help them with what they’re putting dogs through all over the world. Unfortunately, George Floyd is not a dog, and that’s how I feel, because had George Floyd been a dog, Lisa would have marched like she did for Vanderpump Dogs.”

Faith continued, “They go out of their way. They cry on camera and talk on microphones to congregations of people about how wrong it is to eat and kill these innocent dogs … All we want to do is to have the same rights. We want to live.”
Fans are taking issue too. Lisa posted to her Instagram, “I am deeply saddened by the tragic events of the past few days. This is about our shared humanity. Everybody deserves to feel safe in this country.” A fan decided to take her to task and commented, “Marches for dogs but nothing for humans.” Lisa then responded, “I march for humans … #lgbt check your facts.”

Apparently, Lisa has been involved in Faith’s role on the show from the start. Faith claims that Lisa told her off-camera that she was brought onto the show to “bring more color” to it.
Faith also alleges that Lisa told her she wanted more diversity because the Latino kitchen staff wasn’t spotlighted enough. She does clarify, saying, “I don’t think the producers are racist,” but that they have a “lack of vision”.

Lisa may be a long-time Bravo favorite but even she needs to be held accountable for her actions. After all the cast put her through, I’m proud of Faith for being the one to do it.
