Faith Stowers continues to make the media rounds in the wake of Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute being fired from Vanderpump Rules for their racist treatment of her.
While the former SURver has already dished that Stassi never reached out to her personally (and Kristen only did so after being pressured) to apologize. She did reveal in a new interview, however, that she’s mended fences with another former castmate in recent weeks.
This week, Bravo fired Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni for they’re racially insensitive remarks and behavior. Stassi and Kristen called the cops on Faith Stowers in 2018. They accused her of drugging men and theft. Stassi also complained about the black community’s desire to be represented in media. (Yes, you actually read that correctly). Stassi also described herself as “Nazi chic.”
Brett and Max came under fire in January when old tweets resurfaced with each of them using the “N” word in addition to other racially charged comments. Andy Cohen said that he supports Bravo’s decision to fire the four cast members. Lisa Vanderpump said the same and claimed that she wasn’t aware of these incidents, which have been reported throughout the years.
It might be tough for Stassi Schroeder to pay the mortgage on that $1.7 million dollar house. She got fired from Vanderpump Rules. Several brands stopped working with her. Her agent and publicist dropped her. Her podcast has been removed from all platforms. The wine brand she, Kristen Doute, and Katie Maloney endorsed is dunzo.
Hopefully, she has some substantial savings. That is a lot of money to lose. How will she rebound after all of this? We will have to wait and see. In the meantime, her younger brother Nikolai Czermak has spoken out on her behalf. Vanderpump Rules fans have adored seeing Nikolai on the show since the early days. He is known for providing some sage advice to Stassi and her frenemies throughout the years. Most recently, he appeared on Stassi and Beau Clark’s engagement episode, where the editors made it seem like Scheana Marie was hitting on him. Just like Stassi, one of those editors got fired for copping to this super shady editing.
It’s been a week of major change in the Bravo universe. What with Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and two other cast members being summarily fired from Vanderpump Rules for past racist behavior. (The other two are newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni for those at home keeping track.)
Many fans have wondered whether Andy Cohen was behind the decision to oust the Pump Rules OGs after eight seasons. Now, the face of Bravo is finally breaking his silence about the firings, and clarifying his role with the show.
It’s only been a few days since the Vanderpump Rules bombshell was dropped. In one Instagram post, Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni were fired from the show for racist behavior.
Despite it being well known before the announcement, Stassi and Kristen skated by for a few years under the radar. Their firing stems from how they treated ex-castmate Faith Stowers, a black woman. We’ve all known that Stassi and Kristen are mean girls but they went next level on Faith. They falsely accused her of stealing and called the cops on her. So after the news came out, both Stassi and Kristen issued apologies on social media. But did anyone actually reach out to Faith about it?
In the fallout of celebrities being exposed for racist activity, Vanderpump Rules has suffered much needed losses. This is a good thing. Discrimination in any form should not be tolerated, be it by skin color, sexual preference, or how one identifies as a human being.
Treating people horribly and basic intolerance isn’t new for Pump Rules. Who hasn’t had Lala Kent’s finger stuck in their face at this point? Let’s face it, Stassi Schroeder’s career was born from treating people like dirt. It seems we have been watching a show centered around systematic bullying. Sure, people have fun and drink. They go on fancy vacations. But there is usually one cast member receiving the wrath of a particular clique. Former SUR employee Billie Lee often felt victimized and misunderstood during her tenure on the show. Apparently when she tried to speak up, Lisa Vanderpump strongly advised her to stand down.
I think it’s safe to say that fans of Vanderpump Rules are still reeling from recent events. Just yesterday, it was announced that original cast members Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired. This all stems from a recent Instagram Live interview that ex-castmate Faith Stowers gave. She detailed how hard it was to be a black cast member. She also revealed that Stassi and Kristen falsely accusing her of being a thief.
In addition to Stassi and Kristen, both newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were fired due to racist tweets from their past. Bravolebrities from all franchises have reacted. And fans are calling for Jax Taylor to be next.
No one is working harder right now than our good ‘ol friend, Karma. On June 8, Bravo released four Vanderpump Rules cast members who made racially-challenged statements in the past. Fans will now have to imagine Stassi Schroeder’s Italian destination wedding to Beau Clark. She might have to change venues to a Vegas drive-thru, you know, for budget reasons. We will have to wonder about Kristen Doute’s love life and what she plans to do with boxes of unsold t-shirts. They are gone now, courtesy of falsely accusing Faith Stowers of committing a crime.
We also lost Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni. Unfortunately they made some racist remarks on social media years ago, but their ignorance then is haunting them now. While Bravo has
finally cleaned house, fans are saying the work isn’t over. No tolerance should apply to all, not some. Now some of Jax Taylor’s past indiscretions are now up for review. While James Kennedy and Scheana Marie quietly cackle to themselves, Brittany Cartwright is seething in a corner, praying over beer cheese and hoping no one remembers the whole “pastor” thing. Well, Brit might need to break out the Hooters gear because it looks like Jax is next. If the fans have anything to say about it, that is.
