No one is working harder right now than our good ‘ol friend, Karma. On June 8, Bravo released four Vanderpump Rules cast members who made racially-challenged statements in the past. Fans will now have to imagine Stassi Schroeder’s Italian destination wedding to Beau Clark. She might have to change venues to a Vegas drive-thru, you know, for budget reasons. We will have to wonder about Kristen Doute’s love life and what she plans to do with boxes of unsold t-shirts. They are gone now, courtesy of falsely accusing Faith Stowers of committing a crime.
We also lost Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni. Unfortunately they made some racist remarks on social media years ago, but their ignorance then is haunting them now. While Bravo has
finally cleaned house, fans are saying the work isn’t over. No tolerance should apply to all, not some. Now some of Jax Taylor’s past indiscretions are now up for review. While James Kennedy and Scheana Marie quietly cackle to themselves, Brittany Cartwright is seething in a corner, praying over beer cheese and hoping no one remembers the whole “pastor” thing. Well, Brit might need to break out the Hooters gear because it looks like Jax is next. If the fans have anything to say about it, that is.
No one watching Pump Rules expected to solve MENSA formulas, but we could have done without the racism. Stassi had been called out several times and given a pass. We’re still trying to figure out why Kristen wasn’t fired three years ago for lack of anything interesting to film. But let’s take a look at Jax, shall we?
According to The Blast, Jax’s comments on Faith have been equally disturbing. Fans are calling on Bravo to finish what they started. In 2018, Jax replied to a question regarding Faith’s cast status. He said, “She’s wanted by the police for grand theft auto and ‘awol’ from military, bad idea to be on a reality show dude.” Oh, was that Jax perpetuating the rumor Faith committed a crime? He then thought to add, “someone’s going to jail”. These comments resurfaced in the wake of the Stassi/Kristen debacle and people are pissed he wasn’t shown the door with them.

But wait, there’s more! Jax was also embroiled in controversy when he and Brittany selected a vocal anti-LGBTQIA pastor to officiate their wedding. Again feigning ignorance, the pastor was given the boot when Lisa Vanderpump questioned their decision. Jax’s previous comments about sexuality are currently biting him in the ass. Ariana Madix has certainly been the target of Jax’s unsolicited remarks regarding her sexual preference.
After becoming a convicted thief during production, one might think Jax would think twice before randomly accusing someone of a crime. A person of color being falsely accused can have quite a different conclusion than a white person being falsely accused. But none of this occurred to Stassi, Kristen, or Jax.

So does Bravo need to make more cuts or pull the plug? It would be nice to hear what Lisa has to say about all of this. Seeing as she is a champion for causes. Has she been complicit in keeping people with prejudiced leanings on a show where she holds an executive producer title? The theme song to Pump Rules is called, “Raise Your Glass.” But, now, it might be time to put the glass down for good – or shatter it entirely.
