It was only two months ago that we were reading stories about Stassi Schroeder saying she was tired of being called a “mean girl”. Back then, it was towards Kristen Doute. It feels like a lifetime ago. In those days, Kristen’s biggest concern was the fact that Vanderpump Rules wasn’t showing her friendship with Ariana Madix. Now fast forward. Both Stassi and Kristen have been fired after racist actions towards former cast-mate Faith Stowers. Seriously. It’s only been two months since this whirlwind. Time flies when you’re holding people accountable!
Of note is the fact that Faith has decided to start over with former (current? who cares?) hostess Lala Kent. These two were fast friends originally. If you missed it, Kristen reached out the Faith as well. At that time Faith declined to speak with her. Sort of sad, since even Scheana Marie, says Kristen has never been one of the mean girls. Anyways. While Stassi continues to focus attention back on her boring basic bitch cookie-cutter life, Kristen is still trying to share her feelings and reflections on the entire situation.
US Weekly shared an interview on the not-yet-released Hollywood Raw Podcast with Kristen. In the interview, she said, “I think the biggest thing that I’ve learned is that I have so much to learn.” Good for her! As the wise people who started Stassi’s petition to be rehired once said, “When you know better, you do better.” (Actually, they ripped off Maya Angelou, I digress).
Kristen continued, “I know that’s super cliché and a lot of people say that but it’s absolutely true because I think that I thought that I understood racism but now I’m really learning about unconscious bias.” Maybe she is doing some work on this topic. Is she actually admitting she may not know it all? I mean this is just a couple of weeks after she whined about cancel culture. Do people change? Let’s see…

When addressing her past actions Kristen admitted, “It was definitely none of my business to take anything to social media [and] essentially send a mob out to this person. Especially because she’s black” She even added, “It was really just not my place to go there.”
We even got some more info on the specifics of Kristen’s new wokeness. She said she’s been “Learning about anti-racism. Learning about how we can do things locally to really truly make changes and putting work into your community locally to make those changes I think [are] so important.”
Kristen said, “At the end of the day I’m not a f–king saint.” She claimed, “I’m doing the best that I can. I’m human and I make mistakes all the time and I’m just trying to do something every day that makes this a little bit better for everyone.”
Well, she had me. But if you really want to show some growth, Kristen why don’t you answer for your rekindled friendship with Stassi and Katie again? One of you is reaching out, expressing remorse, discussing your growth. The other one is announcing her pregnancy via a new shit-riddled PR firm and an #ootd onesie. Personally, I think they both could be doing more than talking about their feelings on a podcast. But at least it’s something.
