Vanderpump-Rules-Stassi-Schroeder

This year Bravo was forced to admit they have some… employee issues. The world spotlight has been focused on racism and skeletons are falling out of closets everywhere. The cast of Vanderpump Rules have faced jarring changes because certain people made very bad choices.”Think before you speak” doesn’t seem to be a mantra a lot of these folks are familiar with.

Stassi Schroeder lost her job and lucrative side income for her very bad choices. Stassi also has a marked history of making racially insensitive comments. In an effort to redeem her tarnished reputation, Stassi held an interview with Tamron Hall. The event didn’t go Stassi’s way and she claims Tamron went “rogue” with the subject matter. Now Tamron responds to Stassi’s accusations, because she is not having one moment of this crap.

Vanderpump Rules reunion - Jax and Kristen

Viewers currently do not know the fate of Vanderpump Rules. This show could be clinging to very little when it comes to life support. Not only did Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder find themselves fired, several of the veteran ladies are now coincidentally pregnant at the exact same time. They have gone full pregnancy pact in WeHo.

Along with Kristen and Stassi, new cast members Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were also axed due to some extremely insensitive social media content. After the exodus, fans called on Jax Taylor to be fired as well. We all know Jax is never at a loss for being distasteful, but it has yet to earn him walking papers. Now Kristen, author, catchy-phrase t-shirt designer, and expert on workplace inequality thinks Bravo needs to be held accountable for practicing double standards.

Below Deck Mediterranean Captain Sandy Yawn Malia White

To say this season of Below Deck Mediterranean has been a bit of a dumpster fire is putting it mildly. The series said good-bye to former Chief Stew, Hannah Ferrier when she was terminated for having “drugs” on board the yacht. Hannah wasn’t crushing Adderall and listening to EDM in the bathroom, she had an undisclosed prescription for Valium and a CBD vape pen. Thankfully bosun, Malia White was there to keep everyone’s moral compass in check and reported Hannah’s violation to Captain Sandy Yawn.

Viewers aren’t getting the “ladies in charge” vibe they were hoping for, but Captain Sandy has definitely taken Malia under her wing. She even went so far as to hire Malia’s psycho boyfriend to replace the much-maligned Chef Kiko Lorran. Viewers have been pretty furious at both Sandy and Malia for how Hannah’s dismissal was handled, but now Malia might have her own bone to pick with Sandy. Recently the captain took part in a Cameo video, and what Sandy said could be the catalyst to sink her ship.

Lisa Rinna Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

Lisa Rinna had quite a season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Lacking her own storyline, she used her time vilify another cast member. Along with dancing around in varied stages of undress, this is her thing now. Lisa also managed to take a 20+ year friendship with Denise Richards and allow it to deteriorate in a sea of accusations and rumors. It was all speculation, but because of a few ambiguous texts and unreliable sources, most of the ladies deemed it as fact.

Much like the scandal involving a dog that we will never name again, viewers lost another cast member. As a result of being ganged up on and perhaps falsely implicated, Denise said hasta la vista to women who seemed to forget all previous experiences with Brandi Glanville aka THE TRUTH TELLER. Rinna didn’t mind exposing Denise’s purported infidelity and discussing it to excess, but we all know she isn’t too keen when someone brings up HER relationship. Recently, someone accused Harry Hamlin of extra-marital indiscretions on social media and Lisa responded. Now ladies and gentlemen, let’s talk about the husband…

Teddi Mellencamp Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

Everyone take a deep breath. This might be the one redeeming moment in all of 2020. Let me first say this report has not been confirmed, but word on the street is, Teddi Mellencamp  will NOT be returning to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I will wait whilst you prepare your fireworks and celebratory adult beverages.

It is probably safe to say the majority of RHOBH viewers reached an impasse with Teddi. She struggled to bring anything relevant to the show, aside from the occasional bewildered look and a co-dependent relationship with Kyle Richards. Oh, what will Kyle do without her package deal? The Hills are alive with the sounds of diamonds dropping. Allegedly.

Garcelle Beauvais Real Housewives of Beverly Hills RHOBH

Honestly, it’s 2020, so anything can happen at this point. It would be the reality television crossover no one asked for heard across the Bravosphere. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Garcelle Beauvais wants now former Real Housewives of Atlanta headliner, NeNe Leakes, to come on over to Cali. Garcelle, what have we done to deserve this? Well, NeNe needs a new gig and Beverly Hills has a vacancy. Now that NeNe has been let go left her journey in Atlanta, is it possible she could pop up in the Hills?

Quite frankly, it sounds like something Andy Cohen would salivate over. His “icon” stirring things up in a completely different environment. As with the usual Bravo formula, NeNe already has existing friendships with some of the stars. And she may be in LA on the regular filming her new, sure to be successful fashion show. So I suppose it’s conceivable, in some alternate universe, that this could happen. Garcelle lost her buddy Denise Richards to bullying scandal, now she wants NeNe to come in and fill her spot. Lisa Rinna is probably shaking in her boots at the mere thought, so maybe it is a good idea after all.

Kathy Hilton

We’ve been here before, friends. That time of limbo after another season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has mercifully ended. Rumors begin to hum about what fantastic, wealthy female will throw her hat into the ring of fire. Since about 2015, Kathy Hilton’s name has been batted around as a possible Housewife. One thing we can probably all agree on is that this show needs a shake-up. Kathy actually passed on the shot to join the first season of RHOBH and suggested her sister, Kyle Richards instead. Thanks so much, Kathy!

RHOBH viewers already know Kathy is the half-sister Kyle and Kim Richards. Viewers also know Kathy and Kyle’s relationship has been a bit…touchy. If Kyle were to write down a list of her fears, sister Kathy would probably be on the top of that list. Right next to heights and Lisa Vanderpump’s swans. There are a lot of skeletons in that family closet and let me tell you, it’s a walk-in with several floors. So while many fans think the show doesn’t need another Richards/Hilton tie, Kathy might be the one person who can give the people what they want. This could get interesting.

Stassi Schroeder Vanderpump Rules

Two of the original cast members of Vanderpump Rules were #firedbyBravo in June of this year. Both Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were shown the proverbial door when they took part in some less than ethical practices. Stassi and Kristen made the incredibly poor choice of calling the police on former SUR server, Faith Stowers. It was a retaliation move when Jax Taylor cheated on Brittany Cartwright. Because nothing makes more sense than attacking the female instead of the dude that cheated.

Unfortunately, that incident was not Stassi’s first appearance at the racially insensitive rodeo. In 2017, she made public comments about people of color wanting more recognition in the film industry. And then there was the time she decided to dress in a monochromatic ensemble and label it “Nazi chic”. If you’re keeping score at home, Stassi has a marked history with making ignorant statements. Now Stassi breaks her silence on the firing, being labeled as racist, and where she goes from here.
