Lisa Vanderpump of the Dahling That’s Just My British Humor Vanderpumps, has been doing media for her new show over on the E! channel. While she “overserves” d-list celebrities at her home, people continue to wonder about the fate of Vanderpump Rules, which continues to hang on a very thin thread. The show has struggled to make a return since half the cast was fired for past racial indiscretions. It might be time to give this horse a nice ceremony and let it die in peace.
Along with Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and two rando guys no one remembers, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright also departed the program. But how they left is up for debate. If you ask Jax and Brittany, they voluntarily left to “work on their growing family“. Recently Lisa gave an interview on the possible future of VPR, and ended any speculation of how Jax and Brittany went out. Now it seems Lisa could very well become a member of the #blockedbyjax club.
It seems like forever since Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired from Vanderpump Rules for their racist behavior. Two newbies, Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens were also axed for their racial insensitivity on June 9, 2020.
Stassi lost many brand endorsement deals, and her podcast was yanked from all platforms. There were rumblings in August of 2020 that Stassi might get a show of her own, but the talks never came to fruition.
Very few people actually quit a Bravo reality TV show. Usually, they are afforded the courtesy of putting out some nonsensical statement about “looking forward to future projects”
that never actually come to fruition to save face. However, most people don’t just quit these shows. The Bravo paychecks and the endorsement deals that come from the exposure are a lot to give up.
In June 2020, Bravo fired Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni for their racist behaviors. In response, some people wanted to know why Jax Taylor wasn’t included in that list of firings. Faith Stowers accused Jax’s wife Brittany Cartwright of using racial slurs.
While Faith Stowers was never a key cast member on Vanderpump Rules, she was certainly part of some defining moments both on and off the show. Remember that time in 2018 that Pump Rules stars Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder called the police and alleged that Faith had stolen clothing, credit cards, and (possibly) Jax Taylor’s car? Faith, of course, was innocent.
It took a while, but karma finally caught up with the Vanderpump Rules cast. In June of 2020, Stassi and Kristen were axed from the show for their racist behavior. Newbie VPR stars Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens also got the boot because of racially insensitive tweets.
The Vanderpump Rules reckoning is an ongoing movement. Since OGs Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired this summer for racist behavior (along with newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni), people have been waiting for Jax Taylor to get the boot. Jax and his wife, Brittany Cartwright, made headlines this year when it was revealed that they were totally apathetic about having a homophobe marry them on TV. It was also revealed that Brittany used racial slurs against Faith Stowers.
Jax and Brittany got booted off Pump Rules last week. In spite of the fact that Stassi didn’t want them to get fired. Brittany’s meemaw can’t churn out the beer cheese fast enough to sooth either of them. This was a long time coming for Jax. His absence will shift the show, and even Andy Cohen is ready for the change.
Vanderpump Rules was once the best show on Bravo. Of course, THAT’S MY OPINION!!! (Trademark Tamra Judge). But seriously, it was! Who would have thought following hot Survers around a sexy unique restaurant would have been a good idea? Lisa Vanderpump – that’s who. The woman is some sort of Bobby Fischer genius reality TV Svengali.
LVP didn’t write the whole story, but she knew Scheana Marie’s affair with Brandi Glanville’s D-List ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian, would be the crossover of crossovers. Season after season the Pump Rules cast never stopped surprising us with their awful misdeeds and sometimes instant confessions. The content was wild and entertaining. But under the surface were some harsh truths and finally, this year, there was a reckoning. Day one stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired for racist actions. Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were fired for using racial slurs. Now that the “reality” of these personas has been exposed, where does it go from here?
While the fate of Vanderpump Rules hangs in the balance, the stars on the show have been moving on with their lives. In June, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired from the show along with newbies Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens for their appalling racist behavior.
The coronavirus pandemic halted production for Season 9. Pump Rules star Katie Maloney hasn’t heard anything from Bravo about the show resuming filming.
