As you all know at this point, Stassi Schroeder had her first post-firing interview this morning with Tamron Hall. She discussed some of her horrible comments, like that “Nazi chic” remark. She revealed that she has a “diversity teacher.” Stassi even said that she doesn’t want Jax Taylor to get fired, despite the backlash against him.
Of course, Kristen Doute’s name was mentioned during that interview, which led to some back and forth in the comments section on Kristen’s Instagram.
Stassi Schroeder addressed her firing from Vanderpump Rules for the first time during a sit-down interview with Tamron Hall this morning. She shared her regrets about calling herself “Nazi chic.” Stassi said she hired a “diversity teacher” to educate her on race, which actually includes weekly homework assignments.
She even called herself a “Karen” for previously declaring that “all lives matter.” Tamron really went in with some tough questions for Stassi. She even brought up Jax Taylor and the recent backlash against him.
Did you watch Stassi Schroeder’s interview with Tamron Hall this morning? It was rough. Tamron had no problem asking the tough questions and pushing for specifics when Stassi gave answers.
She called out Stassi for bragging about calling the cops on Faith Stowers back in 2018. Tamron questioned her for describing herself as “Nazi chic.” She asked Stassi why she felt it was OK to complain about the Black community’s desire to be represented in film. And throughout that conversation, Stassi revealed that she’s hired a “diversity teacher.” Yes, apparently, that is a thing.
It’s been three months since the Vanderpump Rules reckoning. Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Brett Caprioni, and Max Boyens were all fired after Season 8 for racist behavior. Since then, Stassi and Kristen have mended their friendship, but are handling things a bit different.
Kristen has been more outspoken about getting fired, revealing that she tried to reach out to Faith Stowers, and is donating a portion of her Cameo profits to the ACLU. While Stassi deflected by announcing that she’s pregnant. Now, for the first time Stassi has spoken about everything that has happened in an interview with Tamron Hall.
Two of the original cast members of Vanderpump Rules were #firedbyBravo in June of this year. Both Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were shown the proverbial door when they took part in some less than ethical practices. Stassi and Kristen made the incredibly poor choice of calling the police on former SUR server, Faith Stowers. It was a retaliation move when Jax Taylor cheated on Brittany Cartwright. Because nothing makes more sense than attacking the female instead of the dude that cheated.
Unfortunately, that incident was not Stassi’s first appearance at the racially insensitive rodeo. In 2017, she made public comments about people of color wanting more recognition in the film industry. And then there was the time she decided to dress in a monochromatic ensemble and label it “Nazi chic”. If you’re keeping score at home, Stassi has a marked history with making ignorant statements. Now Stassi breaks her silence on the firing, being labeled as racist, and where she goes from here.
Few Bravo shows have seen such a fall from grace like Vanderpump Rules. Once the must-watch show of Bravo’s lineup, this past season really jumped the shark. First, we were subjected to a snooze fest of a wedding storyline. Then the firing of Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute at the end of the season really tainted the whole thing.
As for the rest of the cast, fans have long suffered through Katie Maloney sulking on the couch and folding laundry. But at least she’s not involved in the whole mess. Her main storyline for the season was killing her pet lizard. Which I guess in comparison to everything else, is forgivable. But aside from being a cold-blooded lizard-killer, Katie is known as less than enjoyable for fans. I’m obviously putting it nicely.
The fate of Vanderpump Rules is up in the air. We all know by now that Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute got fired. On top of that, coronavirus has put production on hold. Additionally, the show technically revolves around the restaurants, even though none of these people are actually waitresses anymore.
Nevertheless, we all know Lisa Vanderpump isn’t gonna let them film if there are no plugs for TomTom, SUR, and Pump. And let’s be honest: the show just isn’t as good as it used to be. There are too many people in the cast. Plus, OG cast members are all settled down and that’s great for them, but it doesn’t make for the most exciting TV. I cannot watch the lead-in to a wedding every single season. Talk about a yawn fest.
Kate Chastain, love her or hate her, is an iconic Bravo-lebrity. Before her time on Below Deck she was also a Bravo super-fan! And that is why so many love her. She dishes her real feelings towards all the other Bravo-lebs she meets.
Tragically, Kate is leaving Below Deck. For those of you who stan, don’t worry, shes got her own new show on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM channel! She’s also teased being back on our screens in the future. For those of you who can’t stand her, it’s been a tough summer, let’s at least enjoy the deep shade she brings, even if it’s off screen.
