Stassi Schroeder

Tom Sandoval

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!

Kristen Doute Vanderpump Rules

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.

Kristen Doute Tweets About Cancel Culture After Her Own Cancellation

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.

Stassi Schroeder Kristen Doute Vanderpump Rules

In the words of the iconic Luann de Lesseps, “can you believe it, girls”!? It has been less than 3 weeks since the firings of Vanderpump Rules cast Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute! Also, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were axed. Anyone care? Didn’t think so. I just like to repeat their names next to garbage to build that association forever. Moving on. So the long and short of it is that Stassi has been dumped by her PR firm and then was picked up by a new one. This new place is shoving Stassi’s pregnancy down our throats, likely in hopes that we forget about her racist actions towards former castmate Faith Stowers. Kristen, on the other hand has been mostly quiet. Well, except her forced apology after this all came to light. At least it’s something!

Both Kristen and Stassi have lost a lot of financial opportunities as a result of finally being held accountable for being terrible people. Kristen was dropped by her book publisher. The witches wine business has been canceled. Oh and Stassi’s thirsty and wholly uninteresting podcast has been taken off all platforms! I’m over here rejoicing for some bleak bits of justice left in this world. Others are out here trying to get these two back on our screens. No seriously, some people ACTUALLY still enjoy these two. Keep reading, but hold on tight.

Stassi Schroeder Scheana Shay

At one point, very recently, two Vanderpump Rules OG cast members were pregnant, Stassi Schroeder and Scheana Shay. Stassi revealed that she and Beau Clark are expecting a baby girl, who’s due in January 2021. Unfortunately, Scheana just revealed that she lost her baby six weeks into her pregnancy.

Scheana emphasized that she’s so happy for Stassi in addition to sharing that Stassi has been very supportive while Scheana struggles to cope with her loss.

Scheana Marie

Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Shay has been very open about her fertility journey, which has included freezing her eggs.

Recently, she found out that she was pregnant, naturally, something she never expected to happen. She was very excited, however, she just revealed that she miscarried.

Tom Sandoval Comments On Vanderpump Rules Firings

Even though season 8 of Vanderpump Rules just ended, the headlines just keep on coming. Normally, the news is a bit quieter during the off-season, but with 19,334 cast members, there’s usually something going on. And, oh, yeah, four cast members just got fired. OG cast members Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute came under fire for calling the police on Faith Stowers in 2018, accusing her of a crime she didn’t commit. Stassi also complained about the Black community’s desire for more representation in film. She referred to herself as “Nazi chic.” There really is a long list of offenses that Stassi never faced consequences for, until very recently, years later, even though EVERYONE was very much aware of her actions.

Then there are two lesser casualties to the show, Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens, who have only appeared on one season. None of us were really invested in their storylines and on top of that, they both came under fire for some controversial tweets which included racist and homophobic remarks. Again, everyone was very aware of this, yet they faced no consequences when the posts resurfaced. Privilege alert. Privilege alert.

Stassi Schroeder Beau Clark baby

Most people like to lay low following a massive scandal so they can regroup, reflect, and ultimately, reinvent themselves for the better. However, former Vanderpump Rules cast member Stassi Schroeder is just not one of those people with (seemingly) staged paparazzi photos and early pregnancy announcements. What racism scandals? As a result of her racially offensive behavior, she got dropped by many brands. Her podcast was removed from all platforms. Her agent and publicist cut ties with her. She got fired from Vanderpump Rules. Then, she hired a crisis management team.

But at least, she has one good thing going on right now. Stassi and Beau Clark are expecting their first child in January and have been using this news to deflect from the Faith Stowers scandal and build up some goodwill.
