Vanderpump Rules didn’t make Faith Stowers famous, but honey she tried. Faith was never exactly a regular, but she did kind of swing on Lala Kent’s coattails. Unfortunately for the former waitress, it was swinging from Jax Taylor’s peen that originally got her name in the media. Hollywood has tales of the casting couch, but SUR has tales about the casting booth.
While Faith never made it #bigbybravo, she did manage to almost take down the entire show. Faith found herself the victim of a false-police report filed by geniuses Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute. As a result, Stassi and Kristen saw their 15 minutes of fame and their paychecks fly out the door. Now Faith is plotting the ultimate revenge, the final straw, the ace in the hole… Pump Rules is clinging to life thanks to major cast changes and the pandemic. The family has been called in to pay their respects, while Faith waits in the wings with her back-up plan.
This year has been a tale of highs and lows for former Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder. In June, she was fired along with co-star Kristen Doute for racist behavior. Stassi and Kristen called the police on Pump Rules co-star Faith Stowers in 2018. The duo accused Faith of drugging men and then stealing from them. Of course, none of this was true.
Stassi lost many brand sponsorships, and her podcast was removed from all platforms. She even hired a diversity teacher to help her learn from her mistakes.
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.
