After years of racist remarks and behavior, Stassi Schroeder got fired from Vanderpump Rules in the midst of the Black Lives Matter movement. Obviously, the network had no choice but to cut ties with Stassi and the four others who got fired, given the current climate. But, it’s clear that there was a reluctance to do so, evidenced by years of the network turning the other cheek.
When Stassi complained about Black people wanting to be represented in film, she faced zero consequences. When Stassi referred to herself as “Nazi chic,” she faced zero consequences. Even when it initially came to light that Stassi called the police and military police on Faith Stowers, she faced zero consequences. She was only held accountable years later when Faith told the story again. Stassi lost her sponsors, her podcast was removed from all platforms, and her agent/manager dropped her. As a result, she hired a crisis PR team and they are earning every dollar, keeping this woman in the news.
Speaking of Stassi’s PR team, rumors circulated that Stassi was working with the production company Evolution Media on a possible spin-off show. Evolution Media is the same company that produces Vanderpump Rules. However, Stassi is actually still in contract with Vanderpump Rules. That doesn’t mean she’s returning, but it just means she can’t appear on any other networks during that time.
Considering that Stassi is fresh off of a scandal, the possibility of a spin-off series just didn’t make much sense. Yes, she’s fired, pregnant, and planning a wedding, which just screams reality TV storyline, but it would just be so incredibly tone-deaf to give her a show at this point.

Stassi’s former boss Lisa Vanderpump spoke out about the possibility of a Stassi spin-off show on Twitter, writing, “I’ve been asked repeatedly and unfortunately it’s not true, false rumor,I work closely with @evolutionusa. no authenticity to story regarding spin off for Stassi Schroeder. Good morning everybody.”
“Unfortunately it’s not true”? That’s an interesting take for Lisa to have considering that she recently revealed that Stassi has been ghosting her.
