Stassi Schroeder shares new insight into the incident that got her and Kristen Doute fired from Vanderpump Rules nearly two years after the fact.
The Next Level Basic author reveals that she and Kristen weren’t the only Pump Rules stars involved in the racially charged incident against Faith Stowers that ultimately led to Bravo firing them in June 2020.
“I mean the cast members I’m friends with, everyone was there, I mean they witnessed… Lots of other people were a part of what went down,” Stassi confessed on the “Skinny Confidential Him and Her” podcast.
“There were more people involved in ‘the incident’ that I was fired for. And Kristen and I, obviously we were not gonna take people down with us. So we were like ‘Lucky you guys, those of you who didn’t get called out for this.’ So everyone was pretty kind because I think they were feeling lucky that they didn’t, that they still had a job,” she continued.
Bravo kicked Stasis and Kristen to the curb after they came under fire for calling the police on Faith in 2018. Faith was the only black cast member to appear on Pump Rules.
“There was an article written and they had a tip-line number,” Stassi explained during an interview with The Morning Toast in April 2022. Stassi added that she believed “in my soul” that the woman in the photo was Faith.
“Kristen and I thought we did our due diligence…we acted on gossip, and that was the problem. I did not witness anything, like, I didn’t witness Faith doing anything, and that is truly…the biggest lesson. You can’t go accusing people of things that you’ve never witnessed before,” she noted.
Vanderpump Rules is set to return for season 10 in late 2022 or early 2023.
