Considering how dehydrated the Vanderpump Rules cast members are for attention, it is a bit surprising that pretty much no one has spoken out about four cast members getting fired. Yeah, Tom Sandoval made some vague remarks about waiting to see what happens, but other than that, it’s pretty much been silence from the rest of the cast members. Straight up crickets.
Most likely, they’re all just wary about losing their jobs… if the show even comes back. However, Lala Kent has finally spoken out about Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder getting fired from the show.
It feels like forever ago that Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder were fired from Vanderpump Rules. And for like, one day, they managed to lay low. That was until the new PR firm they both hired went into overdrive and started bombarding us with these two. Stassi announced her pregnancy. And Kristen emerged from the shadows to go on a walk with her boyfriend. Groundbreaking stuff.
But as much as I would love them to go away, alas, that is not meant to be. Now, Kristen is ditching the staged paparazzi photos and speaking out about her firing.
It was only two months ago that we were reading stories about Stassi Schroeder saying she was tired of being called a “mean girl”. Back then, it was towards Kristen Doute. It feels like a lifetime ago. In those days, Kristen’s biggest concern was the fact that Vanderpump Rules wasn’t showing her friendship with Ariana Madix. Now fast forward. Both Stassi and Kristen have been fired after racist actions towards former cast-mate Faith Stowers. Seriously. It’s only been two months since this whirlwind. Time flies when you’re holding people accountable!
Of note is the fact that Faith has decided to start over with former (current? who cares?) hostess Lala Kent. These two were fast friends originally. If you missed it, Kristen reached out the Faith as well. At that time Faith declined to speak with her. Sort of sad, since even Scheana Marie, says Kristen has never been one of the mean girls. Anyways. While Stassi continues to focus attention back on her boring basic bitch cookie-cutter life, Kristen is still trying to share her feelings and reflections on the entire situation.
Lisa Vanderpump’s life is never boring, but right now she is dealing with a lot of changes. Vanderpump Rules axed stars Kristen Doute, Stassi Schroeder, Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens for racist behavior.
In addition, like the rest of us, Lisa has been dealing with the fall-out from the coronavirus epidemic. Lisa and her husband Ken Todd own four restaurants in Los Angeles: SUR, Villa Blanca, PUMP, and TomTom. They have been closed due to Covid-19, as has Vanderpump Cocktail Garden At Caesars Palace in Los Vegas.
There has been a lot happening in the Vanderpump Rules universe. First off, Bravo has finally been reacting to the Black Lives Matter movement. On June 9, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired from the show for racist behavior. Newbie Pump Rules stars Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens were also given pink slips when racially insensitive tweets from the past came back to bite them.
In 2018, Vanderpump Rules alum Faith Stowers slept with Jax Taylor. As if that wasn’t punishment enough, Kristen and Stassi told the police that Faith was stealing watches and drugging men. Faith, of course, was innocent. Stassi and Kristen? Not at all.
I think we can all use a little good news right now. Especially(?) when it comes to Vanderpump Rules. At this point, I think we all know about the Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute firings. Don’t forget about fans begging for Jax Taylor to get fired too! Or his racist comments towards 90 Day Fiance cast member Jay Smith. Truthfully, I think the show has been spared by the season ending when it did. The part 3 reunion episode did this freak show zero favors, if I do say so myself.
In this shit storm of a cast, there are still a few shining lights. Scheana Shay, for one, came out unscathed. Despite her tragic miscarriage, I still say Scheana is doing life right. She remains coupled with hottie and ever-supportive Brock Davies who I hope to see more of next season. Assuming the VPR OG is back on our screen. And while there’s a supposed friendship between Kristen and Ariana Madix, I think Tom Sandoval and Ariana came out okay too. Just in time for Tom’s new makeup launch! Yes, you read that correctly! Male make up!
This Vanderpump Rules firings story is just constantly continuing. As we all know at this point that Stassi Schroeder, Max Boyens, Brett Caprioni, and Kristen Doute got fired from Vanderpump Rules for their racially offensive behaviors and words. Stassi has said and done many terrible things throughout the years with zero repercussions. She called herself “Nazi chic,” complained about Black people wanting representation in film, and denounced the #MeToo movement among other things.
Tweets with racial slurs from Max and Brett’s past resurfaced in January 2020, with zero consequences at the time. When Faith Stowers recounted the story about Stassi and Kristen calling the cops on her and the military police accusing her of a crime she didn’t commit, Faith got a lot of support, which lead to those firings. In addition to Stassi and Kristen doing that to Faith, they also bragged about it in podcast interviews and on social media.
Up until their firings, all four of those former cast members were posting in support of Black Lives Matter. Some of them took a break from social media. Others staged paparazzi photos and deflected via pregnancy announcement. Now, Kristen is back on social media, speaking out about causes she supports, which isn’t sitting well with social media followers.
Am I going to miss Kristen Doute on Vanderpump Rules? To a degree, yes. She always delivered on the show without even meaning to. Who else tells their boss to suck a dick and thinks they were wrongfully terminated? Only Kristen. Do I agree with Bravo’s decision to fire her? Absolutely. Do I think what her and Stassi Schroeder did to Faith Stowers was horrible and ignorant? Yes. Will Pump Rules be okay without them? Yes. You can have great reality TV without bigots.
At one point in time, I really enjoyed watching Kristen. She always displays an inability to learn anything from her mistakes. She also never bothers to take a minute to think before she addresses basically anyone in her life. Kristen is, of course, repeating the same patterns on Twitter.
