There has been a lot happening in the Vanderpump Rules universe. First off, Bravo has finally been reacting to the Black Lives Matter movement. On June 9, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired from the show for racist behavior. Newbie Pump Rules stars Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens were also given pink slips when racially insensitive tweets from the past came back to bite them.
In 2018, Vanderpump Rules alum Faith Stowers slept with Jax Taylor. As if that wasn’t punishment enough, Kristen and Stassi told the police that Faith was stealing watches and drugging men. Faith, of course, was innocent. Stassi and Kristen? Not at all.
At one point, very recently, two Vanderpump Rules OG cast members were pregnant, Stassi Schroeder and Scheana Shay. Stassi revealed that she and Beau Clark are expecting a baby girl, who’s due in January 2021. Unfortunately, Scheana just revealed that she lost her baby six weeks into her pregnancy.
Scheana emphasized that she’s so happy for Stassi in addition to sharing that Stassi has been very supportive while Scheana struggles to cope with her loss.
Most people like to lay low following a massive scandal so they can regroup, reflect, and ultimately, reinvent themselves for the better. However, former Vanderpump Rules cast member Stassi Schroeder is just not one of those people with (seemingly) staged paparazzi photos and early pregnancy announcements. What racism scandals? As a result of her racially offensive behavior, she got dropped by many brands. Her podcast was removed from all platforms. Her agent and publicist cut ties with her. She got fired from Vanderpump Rules. Then, she hired a crisis management team.
But at least, she has one good thing going on right now. Stassi and Beau Clark are expecting their first child in January
and have been using this news to deflect from the Faith Stowers scandal and build up some goodwill.
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.
At this point, it’s tough not to think “what’s the point” when it comes to finishing out this season of Vanderpump Rules. We all know that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni got fired. Without Stassi, it’s obvious that Beau Clark won’t film next season. Rumor has it that Jax Taylor might be next on the chopping block. Or at least that’s what some fans want in addition to some disgruntled VPR alums.
So, it just feels a little bit fruitless to watch this final reunion episode. However, the TV options during the coronavirus pandemic are rather limited, so here we are.
While it was very likely that Stassi Schroeder was the one responsible for that “leaked” news that she and Beau Clark are expecting their first child together, it wasn’t officially confirmed for a few days.
Aside from the pregnancy news, last week was rough for Stassi. She got dropped by her agent and publicist. She got fired from Vanderpump Rules. Her podcast was removed from all platforms. Her brother begged for her job back on social media. Then, she hired a crisis management team and BOOM those pregnancy rumors “leaked.”
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.
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.
