Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute‘s damage control campaign has officially begun. The two ex-besties have finally broken their silence after being fired from Vanderpump Rules for past racist behavior against Faith Stowers.
The ramifications from the racism scandal have been swift and intense. Both Stassi and Kristen were immediately dropped by their respective PR reps. The former’s podcast, Straight Up with Stassi, has all but disappeared from basically every streaming platform. Many fans were left wondering when the Pump Rules OGs would make a public statement about the firing. However, it’s safe to say that few, if any, were expecting the ex-besties to join forces and do it together.
What a week for Stassi Schroeder! It started with her delivering a questionable apology for her racially insensitive behavior. She continued to lose more business deals. Her agent and her publicist dropped her. Vanderpump Rules fired her. Her podcast was removed from all platforms. Aside from the Stassi superfans, she’s been effectively canceled by most people.
And, now, it turns out that she and her fiance Beau Clark are about to be parents. Yes, you read that correctly.
Faith Stowers continues to make the media rounds in the wake of Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute being fired from Vanderpump Rules for their racist treatment of her.
While the former SURver has already dished that Stassi never reached out to her personally (and Kristen only did so after being pressured) to apologize. She did reveal in a new interview, however, that she’s mended fences with another former castmate in recent weeks.
It hasn’t even been a week since the announcement that Vanderpump Rules massacre. I could call it a “shake up” but we all know that wouldn’t really be accurate. Honestly, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute getting fired was way more dramatic than anything that happened this season anyway. So what happened?
The original cast members were let go do to racist behavior against their old castmate, Faith Stowers. This all stems from an incident a few years ago when Stassi and Kristen falsely accused Faith of stealing and unjustly called the cops on her. To make matters worse, Stassi went on a popular podcast to brag about it.
VPR is still reeling from the news. And fans are calling for more justice to be served. Since the news was announced, fans on social media have been calling for Jax Taylor to be axed as well. After all, he is also guilty of falsely accusing Faith for something she didn’t do. At this point, with everything that’s going around about this problematic cast, it’s hard to even imagine how VPR will have a next season.
This week, Bravo fired Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni for they’re racially insensitive remarks and behavior. Stassi and Kristen called the cops on Faith Stowers in 2018. They accused her of drugging men and theft. Stassi also complained about the black community’s desire to be represented in media. (Yes, you actually read that correctly). Stassi also described herself as “Nazi chic.”
Brett and Max came under fire in January when old tweets resurfaced with each of them using the “N” word in addition to other racially charged comments. Andy Cohen said that he supports Bravo’s decision to fire the four cast members. Lisa Vanderpump said the same and claimed that she wasn’t aware of these incidents, which have been reported throughout the years.
It might be tough for Stassi Schroeder to pay the mortgage on that $1.7 million dollar house. She got fired from Vanderpump Rules. Several brands stopped working with her. Her agent and publicist dropped her. Her podcast has been removed from all platforms. The wine brand she, Kristen Doute, and Katie Maloney endorsed is dunzo.
Hopefully, she has some substantial savings. That is a lot of money to lose. How will she rebound after all of this? We will have to wait and see. In the meantime, her younger brother Nikolai Czermak has spoken out on her behalf. Vanderpump Rules fans have adored seeing Nikolai on the show since the early days. He is known for providing some sage advice to Stassi and her frenemies throughout the years. Most recently, he appeared on Stassi and Beau Clark’s engagement episode, where the editors made it seem like Scheana Marie was hitting on him. Just like Stassi, one of those editors got fired for copping to this super shady editing.
Another day, another cancellation for Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute! First, fans found out that Stassi and Kristen were fired from Vanderpump Rules for racist actions towards former Pump Rules star, Faith Stowers. Following that announcement, pretty much any brand affiliated with the twosome had cut ties.
Stassi was dropped by her PR team, and then her podcast was removed from all platforms. I’m guessing her book, Next Level Basic: The Definitive Basic Bitch Handbook, has hit the bargain shelf with fifty percent off stickers slapped onto it. And Kristen’s book, He’s Making You Crazy, is probably right along side it. So, what’s next to end up on the bargain shelf? Well, there is yet another venture of theirs that recently got cancelled as well.
It’s been a week of major change in the Bravo universe. What with Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and two other cast members being summarily fired from Vanderpump Rules for past racist behavior. (The other two are newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni for those at home keeping track.)
Many fans have wondered whether Andy Cohen was behind the decision to oust the Pump Rules OGs after eight seasons. Now, the face of Bravo is finally breaking his silence about the firings, and clarifying his role with the show.
