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.
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.
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.
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.
The longtime Vanderpump Rules have seen a lot of changes among the cast members. Some of them have grown into better people. Others are just getting into even more trouble than they were before.
One person who has seen a lot, from the very beginning is Peter Madrigal. He’s been on the show since day one and he runs Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant SUR, as one of the managers.
At this point, pretty much every reality TV star has a podcast. Well, except for Stassi Schroeder, whose podcast was removed from all platforms in response to her racially insensitive behavior. But, then again, she’s not even a reality TV star anymore, not until the next opportunity comes along, anyway.
Now, that the former queen bee is out of the podcast scene, her
soldier close friend Katie Maloney is coming through with her own podcast. Will she address all of the recent Vanderpump Rules drama? That would be a great way to pull in a big audience for that first episode.
Vanderpump Rules cast member Brittany Cartwright’s mom Sherri Cartwright was in the Intensive Care Unit following bladder surgery complications.
After asking for prayers on social media, Brittany finally has heard something good: her mother’s health has turned a corner. It’s nice to share some good news for a change.
There is absolutely nothing remotely acceptable about the way that Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute treated Faith Stowers in 2018. They accused her of committing crimes she had nothing to do with based on security camera footage of another black woman who was not Faith. They called the police and the military police (Faith is a veteran) and then they bragged about this in a podcast and on social media.
At the time, there was very little outrage in response. Now, in the midst of the Black Lives Matter movement, Faith got a lot of support when she told that story (which she should have had back then when she shared the same information). Shockingly, Bravo took action this time, firing Stassi and Kristen along with Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens, who both had racially offensive tweets resurface in January 2020. When Faith told her story again, she was finally heard. She finally had support. Then she started doing more interviews, talking about how she’d love to “return” to the show, where she was never a full-time cast member. She went from claiming Lisa Vanderpump doesn’t care about George Floyd’s death because George Floyd isn’t a dog to praising Lisa for accepting Bravo’s decision to fire four cast members.
And that’s when opinions on this started to divide. While there’s no doubt that that Faith was mistreated, some people wonder if Faith had an agenda with her recent comments. Obviously, this is such a sensitive situation for many reasons, but adding to the scandal is a leaked private message conversation between Faith and an unknown person from before the firings, where Faith seemingly reveled in the idea of Lisa Vanderpump “kissing her ass” to “come back to the show.” Of course, it’s always possible this could have been fabricated, but if it wasn’t the messages do paint a very different take on the situation.
