While Faith Stowers was never a key cast member on Vanderpump Rules, she was certainly part of some defining moments both on and off the show. Remember that time in 2018 that Pump Rules stars Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder called the police and alleged that Faith had stolen clothing, credit cards, and (possibly) Jax Taylor’s car? Faith, of course, was innocent.
It took a while, but karma finally caught up with the Vanderpump Rules cast. In June of 2020, Stassi and Kristen were axed from the show for their racist behavior. Newbie VPR stars Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens also got the boot because of racially insensitive tweets.
In June, Faith said, “I feel so vindicated studios and production are able to see blatant racism and make these positive changes and help move the race forward– help with the fight forward.” But many Vanderpump Rules viewers also wanted Jax to lose his job.
In 2018, he allegedly responded to a fan who inquired about Faith’s status on the Pump Rules cast. “She’s wanted by the police for grand theft auto and ‘awol’ from military, bad idea to be on a reality show dude,” Jax commented. He added, “Someone’s going to jail.”
Jax and Faith have a history. During the Season six premiere, Faith admitted that she had hooked up with Jax and his wandering penis. Just eww. Jax’s now-wife, Brittany Cartwright, was not pleased by this development. According to Faith, during a speakerphone conversation, Brittany allegedly said, “You a nappy-headed ho!” Of course, Brittany denied any racist behavior towards Faith.

Well, Faith received a belated gift this holiday season in the form of Jax and his wife’s Vanderpump exit. The duo posted nearly identical statements to their Instagram accounts in early December. Since Brittany is pregnant and expecting a baby boy, it seems like an inconvenient time to ditch two paychecks.
And then there is the fact that back in October, Jax told a fan on his Instagram Live that the show was going to begin filming. Jax stated, “Vanderpump Rules is supposed to go back to filming, in fact we’re supposed to go back this month.” I guess Jax didn’t expect to be out of a job.
According to Page Six, Faith sounded off to TMZ about Jax’s departure. The Pump Rules alum said, “I mean, honestly, the thing is I’m proud of Bravo because Bravo knew that wasn’t the light they wanted to show.” She added, “They were standing up against people who are just not a good, right fit for Bravo now.” I agree.

“I think that what he did and what Stassi and Kristen did is not a good thing for Bravo. I’m really proud of that network,” Faith shared. “It means a lot to everyone.” Keeping it classy, Faith wished Jax and Brittany the best in the future.
As for Faith’s future? Faith is working with Maria Menounos and her husband, Kevin Undergaro, on production of a new reality show. So, how jealous do you think Stassi, Kristen, Jax, and Brittany are right now?
