While Faith Stowers was never a key cast member on Vanderpump Rules, she was certainly part of some defining moments both on and off the show. Remember that time in 2018 that Pump Rules stars Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder called the police and alleged that Faith had stolen clothing, credit cards, and (possibly) Jax Taylor’s car? Faith, of course, was innocent.
It took a while, but karma finally caught up with the Vanderpump Rules cast. In June of 2020, Stassi and Kristen were axed from the show for their racist behavior. Newbie VPR stars Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens also got the boot because of racially insensitive tweets.
The Vanderpump Rules reckoning is an ongoing movement. Since OGs Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired this summer for racist behavior (along with newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni), people have been waiting for Jax Taylor to get the boot. Jax and his wife, Brittany Cartwright, made headlines this year when it was revealed that they were totally apathetic about having a homophobe marry them on TV. It was also revealed that Brittany used racial slurs against Faith Stowers.
Jax and Brittany got booted off Pump Rules last week. In spite of the fact that Stassi didn’t want them to get fired. Brittany’s meemaw can’t churn out the beer cheese fast enough to sooth either of them. This was a long time coming for Jax. His absence will shift the show, and even Andy Cohen is ready for the change.
The Vanderpump Rules cast has grown up a lot. Not in terms of maturity or developing a social conscious. They’ve matured in the sense that they can buy two-million-dollar houses in Valley Village and fulfill a pregnancy pact, just like that Lifetime movie. That pact included Lala Kent, fired bigot Stassi Schroeder, and Brittany Cartwright. Outside of that pact is Scheana Shay, who is also pregnant! This is great news considering she suffered a miscarriage earlier this year.
During that awful time in Scheana’s life, Stassi was very supportive, along with Ariana Madix and Brittany. Now, for inexplicable reasons, Scheana and Stassi are on the outs again, and so are Scheana and Lala. Apparently, Stassi didn’t like Scheana sharing the one good story about Stassi this year that Stassi was supportive of her in the aftermath of her miscarriage. Now that Scheana has good news again, she’s sharing who in the cast has reached out with congratulations.
This summer, Scheana Shay opened up about the miscarriage she experienced with Brock Davies. She shared that pregnant Stassi Schroeder was super supportive during that time, which apparently bothered Stassi even though it’s the only genuinely positive publicity she’s shared in a while. Now, Stassi and Scheana aren’t friends… again.
Scheana and Lala Kent publicly feuded when Scheana wasn’t invited to Lala and Randall Emmett’s gender reveal event. Then, Scheana crossed paths with Stassi and Lala at Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor’s gender reveal, which had to be awkward.
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.
