The longtime Vanderpump Rules have seen a lot of changes among the cast members. Some of them have grown into better people. Others are just getting into even more trouble than they were before.
One person who has seen a lot, from the very beginning is Peter Madrigal. He’s been on the show since day one and he runs Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant SUR, as one of the managers.
At this point, pretty much every reality TV star has a podcast. Well, except for Stassi Schroeder, whose podcast was removed from all platforms in response to her racially insensitive behavior. But, then again, she’s not even a reality TV star anymore, not until the next opportunity comes along, anyway.
Now, that the former queen bee is out of the podcast scene, her
soldier close friend Katie Maloney is coming through with her own podcast. Will she address all of the recent Vanderpump Rules drama? That would be a great way to pull in a big audience for that first episode.
Vanderpump Rules cast member Brittany Cartwright’s mom Sherri Cartwright was in the Intensive Care Unit following bladder surgery complications.
After asking for prayers on social media, Brittany finally has heard something good: her mother’s health has turned a corner. It’s nice to share some good news for a change.
There is absolutely nothing remotely acceptable about the way that Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute treated Faith Stowers in 2018. They accused her of committing crimes she had nothing to do with based on security camera footage of another black woman who was not Faith. They called the police and the military police (Faith is a veteran) and then they bragged about this in a podcast and on social media.
At the time, there was very little outrage in response. Now, in the midst of the Black Lives Matter movement, Faith got a lot of support when she told that story (which she should have had back then when she shared the same information). Shockingly, Bravo took action this time, firing Stassi and Kristen along with Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens, who both had racially offensive tweets resurface in January 2020. When Faith told her story again, she was finally heard. She finally had support. Then she started doing more interviews, talking about how she’d love to “return” to the show, where she was never a full-time cast member. She went from claiming Lisa Vanderpump doesn’t care about George Floyd’s death because George Floyd isn’t a dog to praising Lisa for accepting Bravo’s decision to fire four cast members.
And that’s when opinions on this started to divide. While there’s no doubt that that Faith was mistreated, some people wonder if Faith had an agenda with her recent comments. Obviously, this is such a sensitive situation for many reasons, but adding to the scandal is a leaked private message conversation between Faith and an unknown person from before the firings, where Faith seemingly reveled in the idea of Lisa Vanderpump “kissing her ass” to “come back to the show.” Of course, it’s always possible this could have been fabricated, but if it wasn’t the messages do paint a very different take on the situation.
It’s barely been two weeks since the Vanderpump Rules firings of Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute. Stassi has rightfully lost it all. Despite her recent pregnancy news, she’s still considered persona non grata. Her PR firm and agent ditched her. Her podcast has been removed from all platforms. Even her wine line was cancelled.
It was only a matter of time before Kristen was next to receive her punishment for her racist past.
There’s no doubt that the Bravo world is still recovering from some recent firings. Most notably, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute from Vanderpump Rules. Next up to be fired was Pete Hunziker, a newbie deckhand on Below Deck Mediterranean. This was his first season and thanks to a racist post, followed by an abysmal apology, it will be his last.
It’s hard to keep up with some of the problematic pasts of these stars. It seems like everyone has one. Fans are already calling for Jax Taylor’s firing. They aren’t the only ones ready for someone else to be on the chopping block. Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Judge is coming after her former castmate.
There are a lot of reality TV stars getting fired after racially insensitive comments recently resurfaced. Vanderpump Rules fired Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Brett Caprioni, and Max Boyens. Siesta Key cut Alex Kompothecras out of episodes because of his racist social media posts.
But, there are also some people who came under fire for recent social media activity. The Challenge fired Dee Nguyen for her remarks about the Black Lives Matter movement. And we can add Below Deck Mediterranean cast member Pete Hunziker to the list of fired reality TV stars. From the show, we know him for his condescending and sexist remarks. His online presence is even worse.
Ever since the news that Vanderpump Rules fired four cast members, fans can’t help but wonder who could be next. Beyond that, there’s a petition from viewers who want Jax Taylor to get fired for the offensive remarks he has made throughout the years. Vanderpump Rules “alums” Billie Lee and Faith Stowers want him fired.
Even Lance Bass thinks Bravo is going to terminate Jax. Keep in mind that Lance officiated Jax and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding after they got rid of their homophobic pastor. Lance and Jax also have a line of drink mixers called Just Add X, which is an acronym that spells out “JAX.” However, Lance recently claimed that the “number one guy in the group” is stepping down from their company. He even remarked, “You know, we can’t be involved and associated with any of this going down. We have to do the right thing.” Now, Jax is responding to the *NSYNC alum’s claim that he told Jax “Bye Bye Bye.”
