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.
Oh, Lisa Vanderpump, what a tangled web you weave. First, she has a lot to celebrate. Lisa has announced starting a new podcast and a new show about Vanderpump Dogs! I can’t wait to hear all about “ponies…and sex…or lack thereof.” A regular rainbows and butterflies kind of gal. Unfortunately, though, LVP’s image has also been hit with quite a few blows recently.
Vila Blanca has closed for good, and even Adrienne Maloof is coming forward to remind us of all the storylines LVP has constructed over the years. I think the running total is at like 5? Well, unfortunately, it doesn’t look like there’s a reprieve in sight for this lady in pink.
In the words of the iconic Luann de Lesseps, “can you believe it, girls”!? It has been less than 3 weeks since the firings of Vanderpump Rules cast Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute! Also, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were axed. Anyone care? Didn’t think so. I just like to repeat their names next to garbage to build that association forever. Moving on. So the long and short of it is that Stassi has been dumped by her PR firm and then was picked up by a new one. This new place is shoving Stassi’s pregnancy down our throats, likely in hopes that we forget about her racist actions towards former castmate Faith Stowers. Kristen, on the other hand has been mostly quiet. Well, except her forced apology after this all came to light. At least it’s something!
Both Kristen and Stassi have lost a lot of financial opportunities as a result of finally being held accountable for being terrible people. Kristen was dropped by her book publisher. The witches wine business has been canceled. Oh and Stassi’s thirsty and wholly uninteresting podcast has been taken off all platforms! I’m over here rejoicing for some bleak bits of justice left in this world. Others are out here trying to get these two back on our screens. No seriously, some people ACTUALLY still enjoy these two. Keep reading, but hold on tight.
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.”
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 pregnancy, Stassi 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.
The Vanderpump Rules saga continues. After Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni were fired for racist behavior, who is next?
Hmmm. Maybe two people who had a homophobic pastor for their wedding controversy?. Indeed, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright aren’t exactly known for being stand up people. Jax was even part of the Faith Stowers attempted takedown that Stassi and Kristen were fired for. Also, he tweeted out a false accusation that she committed grand theft auto and went AWOL from the military. Neither are true, just like 99% of what Jax says.
By now, it’s safe to say everyone knows about the firing of Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni. Stassi and Kristen were fired for their racist behavior when they falsely accused ex-cast member Faith Stowers of stealing and called the cops on her. Max and Brett were fired when racist tweets of theirs resurfaced.
The condemnation has been swift. Social media is rightfully outraged and Faith, all these years later, is finally vindicated. But not everyone has had to answer for their crimes in all this. Now, Faith and old castmate Billie Lee are speaking out about who else needs to go.
In the fallout of celebrities being exposed for racist activity, Vanderpump Rules has suffered much needed losses. This is a good thing. Discrimination in any form should not be tolerated, be it by skin color, sexual preference, or how one identifies as a human being.
Treating people horribly and basic intolerance isn’t new for Pump Rules. Who hasn’t had Lala Kent’s finger stuck in their face at this point? Let’s face it, Stassi Schroeder’s career was born from treating people like dirt. It seems we have been watching a show centered around systematic bullying. Sure, people have fun and drink. They go on fancy vacations. But there is usually one cast member receiving the wrath of a particular clique. Former SUR employee Billie Lee often felt victimized and misunderstood during her tenure on the show. Apparently when she tried to speak up, Lisa Vanderpump strongly advised her to stand down.
