Lisa Vanderpump Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

I think it’s safe to say that fans of Vanderpump Rules are still reeling from recent events. Just yesterday, it was announced that original cast members Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired. This all stems from a recent Instagram Live interview that ex-castmate Faith Stowers gave. She detailed how hard it was to be a black cast member. She also revealed that Stassi and Kristen falsely accusing her of being a thief.

In addition to Stassi and Kristen, both newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were fired due to racist tweets from their past. Bravolebrities from all franchises have reacted.  And fans are calling for Jax Taylor to be next.

Well, now Lisa Vanderpump is weighing with her thoughts, which some think is too little too late. In an Instagram post that went up today, Lisa wrote out her official statement on the matter.

She starts, “Over the past two weeks, many things have been brought to my attention, of which I and many others were previously unaware. It was necessary for me to be quiet until now, until decisions had been made. Now I can freely speak from the heart.” Can someone explain to me how Lisa wasn’t aware? It’s been pointed out many times in the past. She even addressed Max and Brett’s tweets back in January. And Faith announced she was suing Stassi over her lies back in 2018. So did Lisa not know or she just chose not to listen?

Lisa continues, “As we’ve seen such devastating sadness that has played out globally, we all have a part to play to create a kinder, more just society. My hope is for this generation to treat each other with respect and humanity, and realize that actions have; and should have, consequences.”

“I love and adore our employees and I am deeply saddened by some of the lack of judgment that has been displayed. As many of you know, after watching me for 10 years, I have always been an equal rights activist and ally – my family, my businesses and I condemn all forms of cruelty, racism, homophobia, bigotry and unequal treatment. We’ve never tolerated it in the workplace or our lives.”

She goes on, “While you only see a fraction of our employees on the show, a specific friend group, across all of our companies, we have always been a very diverse group of people – every color, ethnicity and sexual orientation.  Most of our employees have worked for us for over a decade, and we have become a family; one that embraces and celebrates each other’s differences. I am proud of the inclusive company that we’ve created. We will continue to embrace diversity as one of our greatest strengths, and I’m excited to give you deeper look into the multi-faceted fabric of our company in the future.”

Lisa concludes, “The world needs to move forward with a kinder generation. Everybody deserves to feel safe, heard and appreciated in their communities. So much of what has transpired in the world is not right, fair or acceptable. We all have work to do to create a society we can be proud of and I hope as we venture forward, we strive to live in a world where kindness and compassion are our highest values. Thank you for listening, love Lisa.”

Oof, that is a lot. It all sounds good but even Faith thinks Lisa would have protested for George Floyd if he were a dog. Not only that, but there is no way Lisa didn’t know about this stuff. Stassi went on a well-known podcast to air out her vendetta against Faith. Kristen tweeted about it. Are we really supposed to believe that Lisa is so far removed that she wouldn’t have know this? What about Bravo? Is anyone watching the children?!

Either way, Lisa is either genuinely upset and sorry or she’s doing major damage control. Or maybe it’s a little bit of both.
