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.
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.
Vanderpump Rules season nine may still be up in the air, but the OG cast members have been anything but quiet as of late. Lala Kent announced she and
her sugar daddy Randall Emmett are pregnant and expecting a baby girl. Luckily, Lala already has a supply of baby bottles on hand. Former cast member Stassi Schroeder also announced her pregnancy, and recently had her first interview post firing from Pump Rules for racist behavior. And Katie Maloney has been continuing her ongoing battle to clean up her mean girl image.
In contrast, the newbies on the show have been pretty quiet. Last season, VPR had about fifty new people join the cast, several of which also got let go for racist behavior. Namely Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens. Dayna Kathan, who was part of a love triangle with Max and Brett, has remained mum since the firings. However, she recently came forward to talk smack about someone else on the cast, and it just so happens to be everyone’s favorite punching bag on the show.
It’s been three months since the Vanderpump Rules reckoning. Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Brett Caprioni, and Max Boyens were all fired after Season 8 for racist behavior. Since then, Stassi and Kristen have mended their friendship, but are handling things a bit different.
Kristen has been more outspoken about getting fired, revealing that she tried to reach out to Faith Stowers, and is donating a portion of her Cameo profits to the ACLU. While Stassi deflected by announcing that she’s pregnant. Now, for the first time Stassi has spoken about everything that has happened in an interview with Tamron Hall.
Former Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder has remained mum on her firing from the show in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement. Stassi and her co-star Kristen Doute were axed from the show in June, along with two newbie cast members, Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens. Max and Brett were shown the door when past racially insensitive tweets were discovered.
Kristen and Stassi called the police on their Pump Rules co-star Faith Stowers in 2018. The duo alleged that Faith had drugged men and stolen from them. Of course, there was no truth to their claims.
By now, everyone has heard about Vanderpump Rules firing four cast members for racist behaviors. Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens had only been on the show for one season, where they subjected us all to a love triangle that no one cared about. However, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were original cast members. We all know Stassi was favored by the editors. Who will they show making comments on everyone else’s storylines when/if the show returns?
The show normally films in the summers, but, because of the coronavirus, they are not filming. But, will they ever film again? There are plenty of vocal people who don’t want the show to come back. Others just want specific people to get fired along with the rest of them. And, then there’s just the cold, hard truth that the show just is not as good as it used to be. Everyone is wifed up and the storylines just fall flat. Not to mention that there are just way too many cast members to keep track of.
Recently, the Bravo network has come down on its talent for offensive social media posts. Vanderpump Rules fired Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens for their racist tweets that resurfaced from years prior. Below Deck Mediterranean cast member Pete Hunziker got fired from the show, and subsequently edited out of the show after sharing a racist “joke” and then his follow-up tweets didn’t help the situation.
So, what’s going to happen to Real Housewives of Potomac cast member Candiace Dillard? Her homophobic and transphobic tweets recently came to light. In response, she issued an apology talking about how much she’s changed, promising that she is an LGBTQIA+ ally, despite her past sentiments. As of this moment, Bravo, a network that has touted itself as being supportive of the LGBTQIA+ community, has been silent on this. Could that be because Candiace brings so much drama to Real Housewives of Potomac? She, just like the others, issued apologies for her horrendous comments. However, she has faced absolutely zero consequences.
