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.
It almost seems pointless to write this in light of the latest news that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni were fired from Vanderpump Rules for racist remarks and behaviors.
Honestly watching part 2 of the Vanderpump Rules reunion was like watching a zoom full of ghosts.
This firing is long overdue in the case of Stassi who has a history of awful statements. I also think it’s time for Jax Taylor to face those same consequences for his rampant misogyny and disgusting homophobic and transphobic statements. Statements he has made in front of Andy Cohen on WWHL. While Vanderpump Rules may be ‘Jax’s show’ (in his own hubristic mind!), WWHL is Andy’s show. And Andy, like Lisa Vanderpump, has let this crap go completely unchecked for way too long.
It feels like such a moot point to watch Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute screaming at each other during tonight’s Vanderpump Rules reunion. This morning, Stassi, Kristen, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni all got fired from the show because of their racially insensitive remarks and past behavior.
Nevertheless, the Vanderpump Rules reunion was pre-taped and the reunion continues tonight with a second episode.
Millionaire Matchmaker alum Patti Stanger was one of the OG Bravo stars. Even though she hasn’t been on the network for some time. She’s still in the mix with some current and former cast members.
She’s always sharing her opinions and spilling some (alleged) secrets. I say “alleged” because, in all honesty, it’s hard to know what’s true and what isn’t when it comes to Patti.
Congratulations to Below Deck Mediterranean Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier!! During the season 5 premiere episode, she revealed that she was dating someone and for the first time, she was with a guy who she could envision herself marrying and having children with.
Well, clearly, her intuition was on point. Tonight, Hannah announced that she is pregnant with her first child. No wonder she’s done with Below Deck Mediterranean. It’s still unclear if she quit or got fired, but it would make sense if she decided to step away after finding out that she is pregnant. Who would want to be a pregnant chief stew filming a reality TV show? The job itself seems exhausting enough. Throw in a pregnancy and that would just be a lot to deal with, or so it seems.
Poor Kristen Doute. It always seems like she is the one who gets the short end of the stick on Vanderpump Rules. There are some people who get a free pass, ahem Jax Taylor, and others who are always in the wrong. For example, when Jax and Kristen hooked up while her boyfriend Tom Sandoval was in the other room, it was Kristen that no one could forgive. It takes two, y’all!
When Kristen needed Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder to be there for her during her tumultuous relationship with Brian Carter, they got tired of Kristen’s back and forth and ended their friendship with her. Even during the Pump Rules reunion, Kristen got ganged up on when it was revealed she had slept with Max Boyens right before he started dating Dayna Kathan. And Max got crickets! However, one person has come forward to defend Kristen. Scheana Marie has stepped up to the plate and has a lot to say on the matter.
If only we could travel back in time to Vanderpump Rules season 4. Lala Kent was a sassy newbie who many fans rooted for when the mean girls tried everything they could to exclude her from the show. Then, Lala acquired private jet access, and all of a sudden she’s in the “cool” clique. It seems like she forgot where she came from; i.e. who was nice to her when no one else was.
Ariana Madix and Scheana Marie welcomed were the only people who were nice to Lala at the beginning. Now, Lala is dragging them every chance she gets. Lala slammed Ariana for only wanting to be her friend when she’s in a crisis. She also claimed that Scheana was “uninteresting,” but what storyline does Lala have? Other than belittling Raquel Leviss constantly, nothing really comes to mind.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Kristen Doute is having a major fan-supported come up this season. This comes after being ganged up on by Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder. It’s hard to tell if it’s Kristen is really a most-improved player or just the lesser OG evil on Vanderpump Rules. Either way, I am here for her. Truthfully, it’s difficult for me to be on the side of anyone Stassi has admitted to disliking.
Kristen has not only dealt with on-screen drama, but off-screen as well. First, Katie and Stassi tried to blame Kristen for making them look bad. Newsflash! You don’t need help there, ladies. Later, there were even body shaming pregnancy rumors swirling. Seriously, she has dealt with some twisted narratives all while having to get over her long time ex- Brian Carter. What can I say, I’m a sucker for an underdog story. And what better sidekick than the one and only baddie goddess queen, Ariana Madix?
