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.
After what seemed like only moments since getting fired from Vanderpump Rules, Stassi Schroeder has again set viewers ablaze with discontent after watching part 2 of the season 8 reunion. Andy Cohen called out Lala Kent for disparaging remarks about Scheana Marie during an episode of the aftershow. Lala said, “It isn’t interesting to watch a 34-year-old woman in a crop top and slutty Jojo Siwa pony doing the same thing over and over again.” Amidst tears, Scheana explained how hurt she was.
As Lala then burst into tears while trying to explain herself, Stassi and fiancé Beau Clark‘s camera switched to full screen. She subtly whispered, “Lala might be bipolar.” None of the other castmates noticed. However, the viewers at home sure did! And they took to social media to call out Stassi for casually tossing around mental health diagnoses.
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.
I think it’s safe to say that fans of Vanderpump Rules are still reeling from recent events. Just yesterday, it was announced that original cast members Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired. This all stems from a recent Instagram Live interview that ex-castmate Faith Stowers gave. She detailed how hard it was to be a black cast member. She also revealed that Stassi and Kristen falsely accusing her of being a thief.
In addition to Stassi and Kristen, both newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were fired due to racist tweets from their past. Bravolebrities from all franchises have reacted. And fans are calling for Jax Taylor to be next.
Just yesterday, the reality television world was given quite the shakeup. Bravo announced on June 9th that Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were all fired for racist behavior. While many networks and companies are posting about the Black Lives Matter movement, it’s amazing to see a company like Bravo take such bold, public action. I truly feel that this is just the beginning of a long line of changes to be made in the entertainment industry. This is definitely a step in the right direction, as many Bravo stars agree.
Stassi has been feeling the effects of both her behavior and her firing. She’s been dropped by her agent, her PR firm, and many brands have cut all ties with her. And the fallout doesn’t seem to show any signs of stopping.
Where to even begin with this story? To even think about untangling the web these problematic, hypocritical, thirsty people have woven exhausts me. But here I go. So…to begin…I think we all know by now that Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute have been fired for their racist behavior. (Note: Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens were too, but that’s hardly as earth-shattering in comparison). These firings have caused a major uproar in the Bravoshere. This includes fans who don’t want the network to stop with just these four. Specifically, there is a call right now for the network to fire Jax Taylor.
When I say “fans” I am including 90 Day Fiance star Ashley Martson. Just like every love story that gently progresses from a Vegas cheating scandal, divorce threats, and clothes thrown in the street, Ashley and Jay Smith are now living together as a couple. Not only that, but Ashley has spoken out, via Instagram of course, to defend Jay while trashing Jax.
