The domino effect has been in full force for the cast members of Vanderpump Rules. Two OG’s from the show, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute, were recently let go for calling the cops on former cast member Faith Stowers and accusing her of theft back in 2018. Then, newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were let go from the show for racist comments they made on social media.
Fans have been calling for Jax Taylor to get the boot next for several reasons. Last season, Jax consistently made snide remarks about Ariana Madix’s sexuality. He and Brittany Cartwright also played dumb to knowing about their wedding pastor’s alleged homophobic views. Jax also accused Faith of grand theft auto and said she was wanted by the police. Bravo might not have kicked him to the curb yet, but it looks like another company might have.
The Vanderpump Rules saga continues. After Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni were fired for racist behavior, who is next?
Hmmm. Maybe two people who had a homophobic pastor for their wedding controversy?. Indeed, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright aren’t exactly known for being stand up people. Jax was even part of the Faith Stowers attempted takedown that Stassi and Kristen were fired for. Also, he tweeted out a false accusation that she committed grand theft auto and went AWOL from the military. Neither are true, just like 99% of what Jax says.
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’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.
By now, it’s safe to say everyone knows about the firing of Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni. Stassi and Kristen were fired for their racist behavior when they falsely accused ex-cast member Faith Stowers of stealing and called the cops on her. Max and Brett were fired when racist tweets of theirs resurfaced.
The condemnation has been swift. Social media is rightfully outraged and Faith, all these years later, is finally vindicated. But not everyone has had to answer for their crimes in all this. Now, Faith and old castmate Billie Lee are speaking out about who else needs to go.
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.
The fall out continues. Just yesterday, news dropped that four cast members of Vanderpump Rules were fired for racist behavior. To the shock of fans, Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were the ones let go. Stassi and Kristen for making false accusations against Faith Stowers. Max and Brett for racist tweets that resurfaced.
The damage is far and wide for them. Stassi has lost sponsors and her podcast has been removed from all platforms. She’s been dumped by both her PR firm and her agent. The publisher of Kristen’s newly released book will run from her if they are smart. Max and Brett lost a prime opportunity to be on TV and leverage it like the rest of the cast has. In short, they all blew it. But Bravo and the fans have spoken and racism in any form will not be tolerated. Which is exactly how it should be.
