Vanderpump Rules

Faith Stowers

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.

Vanderpump-Rules-Kristen-Doute

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.

Kelly Dodd Real Housewives Of Orange County

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.

Fired Below Deck Mediterranean Star Pete Hunziker Denies Being Racist; Says He’s “VERY Sexually Active With All Races”

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.

Jax Taylor Responds After Lance Bass Publicly Cuts Ties With Him

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.”

Tamra Judges Thinks Kelly Dodd Should Be Fired From Real Housewives Of Orange County Over Resurfaced Racist Video

Unless you’ve been living off the grid with no internet access, you know that a reckoning is happening over at Bravo.

First Vanderpump Rules cleaned house by firing Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and two other cast members over their past racist actions. Fans have started a petition for Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright to follow suit. And now, Tamra Judge is calling for Kelly Dodd to be fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County for her own racist past.

Vanderpump-Rules-Billie-Lee

The Vanderpump Rules kids (and by kids I mean middle-aged adults) are at it again! As fans cry for Jax Taylor to be fired and he is dropped from an eye-wear company deal… not even Lance Bass could stop from announcing ending his business with Jaxy-poo. This is the same couple of week that Stassi Schroeder  confirms her pregnancyStassi and Kristen Doute are fired from VPR, and we get to finally end this miserable season of the show.

Are you keeping up? Good. If you have been watching Vanderpump Rules for a while (and I assume you have because no one would stick around if this was their first season), then you remember Billie Lee. For those of you who somehow don’t know, Billie is a transgender cast-member of seasons past. She is best known for her activism, attempted education of this ignorant AF cast, and getting into an epic screaming match with Lala Kent. Specifically, she tried (and was shut down) to speak to Stassi about her problematic podcast statements on the show. She’s been commenting on the lack of VPR diversity since before it was cool. Also, she had sex with a ghost. Iconic.

Vanderpump Rules Andy Cohen Jax Taylor

Honestly what is left to say about Vanderpump Rules? Is there any point in discussing this? Can I bow out now with just a sayonara to the OG’s. We know that at least a 1/3 of the cast won’t return. Bravo hasn’t announced it yet, but I doubt we’ll see Lala Kent, Brittany Cartwright, or Jax Taylor next season. Well, not if they expect me to watch anyway. And we alllll know Bravo is catering things to my specific wants!

With sponsors and D-list celebrities cutting ties with Jax in response to his not-so-secret Twitter behavior, it’s only a matter of time. Like Ariana Madix pointed out during the season, Brittany is collateral damage.

But truly, after Jax got on national television, smugly insulted his boss and tried to call Andy Cohen out, I think it’s time for ‘his show’ to end. Jax’s ego is out of fucking control! He’s gross, slimy, a liar, a racist, a homophobe, and emotionally abusive to his wife. He’s also emotionally abusive to his castmates. Stassi Schroeder, who really has no room to talk, said at this point everyone is afraid to confront Jax because he’s so vicious.
