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.
As you all know at this point, Stassi Schroeder had her first post-firing interview this morning with Tamron Hall. She discussed some of her horrible comments, like that “Nazi chic” remark. She revealed that she has a “diversity teacher.” Stassi even said that she doesn’t want Jax Taylor to get fired, despite the backlash against him.
Of course, Kristen Doute’s name was mentioned during that interview, which led to some back and forth in the comments section on Kristen’s Instagram.
Stassi Schroeder addressed her firing from Vanderpump Rules for the first time during a sit-down interview with Tamron Hall this morning. She shared her regrets about calling herself “Nazi chic.” Stassi said she hired a “diversity teacher” to educate her on race, which actually includes weekly homework assignments.
She even called herself a “Karen” for previously declaring that “all lives matter.” Tamron really went in with some tough questions for Stassi. She even brought up Jax Taylor and the recent backlash against him.
Did you watch Stassi Schroeder’s interview with Tamron Hall this morning? It was rough. Tamron had no problem asking the tough questions and pushing for specifics when Stassi gave answers.
She called out Stassi for bragging about calling the cops on Faith Stowers back in 2018. Tamron questioned her for describing herself as “Nazi chic.” She asked Stassi why she felt it was OK to complain about the Black community’s desire to be represented in film. And throughout that conversation, Stassi revealed that she’s hired a “diversity teacher.” Yes, apparently, that is a thing.
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.
Two of the original cast members of Vanderpump Rules were #firedbyBravo in June of this year. Both Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were shown the proverbial door when they took part in some less than ethical practices. Stassi and Kristen made the incredibly poor choice of calling the police on former SUR server, Faith Stowers. It was a retaliation move when Jax Taylor cheated on Brittany Cartwright. Because nothing makes more sense than attacking the female instead of the dude that cheated.
Unfortunately, that incident was not Stassi’s first appearance at the racially insensitive rodeo. In 2017, she made public comments about people of color wanting more recognition in the film industry. And then there was the time she decided to dress in a monochromatic ensemble and label it “Nazi chic”. If you’re keeping score at home, Stassi has a marked history with making ignorant statements. Now Stassi breaks her silence on the firing, being labeled as racist, and where she goes from here.
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.
After years of racist remarks and behavior, Stassi Schroeder got fired from Vanderpump Rules in the midst of the Black Lives Matter movement. Obviously, the network had no choice but to cut ties with Stassi and the four others who got fired, given the current climate. But, it’s clear that there was a reluctance to do so, evidenced by years of the network turning the other cheek.
When Stassi complained about Black people wanting to be represented in film, she faced zero consequences. When Stassi referred to herself as “Nazi chic,” she faced zero consequences. Even when it initially came to light that Stassi called the police and military police on Faith Stowers, she faced zero consequences. She was only held accountable years later when Faith told the story again. Stassi lost her sponsors, her podcast was removed from all platforms, and her agent/manager dropped her. As a result, she hired a crisis PR team and they are earning every dollar, keeping this woman in the news.
