Pump Rules Alum Faith Stowers Sues Bravo for Discrimination 


Pump Rules alum Faith Stowers is suing Bravo over Stassi Schroeder racism drama, and Lala Kent’s alleged knife attack. Get all the details!

Pump Rules alum Faith Stowers, who appeared on the Bravo series from 2015 to 2017 as a supporting cast member, is suing Evolution Media, the show’s production company, Bravo, and NBCUniversal for discrimination, retaliation, and sexual harassment, physical assault and more, per Page Six.

According to the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles on Friday, Faith Stowers alleges that she was “subjected to racism, sexual harassment and physical assault in just her first season.”

The former SURver, who is black, claims that Lisa Vanderpump asked her to appear on Pump Rules to add some “color” to the cast. However, Faith Stowers alleges that she was disparaged due to her race while appearing on the series.

Faith notes that her former Pump Rules co-stars allegedly engaged in “overtly racist social media harassment campaigns,” in which they accused her of various crimes including going AWOL from the military, being a thief, who was wanted by the LAPD and more.

The allegations reference the 2020 Pump Rules scandal involving Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Jax Taylor in which their racist claims against Faith were uncovered amid the Black Lives Matter movement.

Jax’s 2017 tweets, accusing Faith of committing crimes resurfaced: “She’s wanted by the police for grand theft auto and ‘awol’ from military, bad idea to be on a reality show dude. Someone’s going to jail.”

As for Stassi, in a now-deleted 2016 episode of the Bitch Bible podcast, she detailed how her and Kristen called the police to try and have Faith arrested because she looked like a woman who was going around Los Angeles drugging men and robbing them of their watches.

“We are like, we just solved a f—king crime,” Stassi reportedly said at the time. “We start calling the police. The police don’t give a f—k.”

Kristen also sent out a now-deleted 2018 tweet that read: “hey tweeties, doesn’t this ex #pumprules thief look familiar? someone put her on mtv & gave her a platform for press. I didn’t wanna go there but I’m going there.”

Faith alleges that she wanted to speak out prior to the Black Lives Movement but was silenced by Bravo and threatened with “ruinous legal action.”

After Stassi and Kristen accusations against Faith became public knowledge they were fired from Pump Rules in June 2020.

Back then Faith said she felt “vindicated” but has since changed her tune.

In her complaint, Faith alleges “now that the racial reckoning of 2020 has receded,” NBC and production company Evolution have “reverted to their old ways,” noting that Kristen and Jax were recently hired for Bravo’s new show The Valley.

Stassi was also offered a role on the show but turned down the offer.

Meanwhile, Faith also alleges that Jax’s now estranged wife Brittany Cartwright hurled racial slurs at her and mocked her “nappy” hair.

As Pump Rules fans know, Faith was involved in a cheating scandal involving Jax, who was dating Brittany at the time.

Elsewhere, in the lawsuit, Faith also claims she was subjected to sexual harassment and physical violence. Faith says after she developed feelings for Lala Kent, Pump Rules producers allegedly forced them to share a bed during a cast trip.

“Production pressured Kent and Stowers to ‘get intimate’ and touch each other sensually on camera,’” the complaint alleges. “All of this was greatly distressing to [the plaintiff].”

Then when Faith’s relationship with Lala soured the Give Them Lala podcast host allegedly pulled a knife on her, “holding it to her neck and threatening to ‘cut a bitch’” as cameras rolled.

A source tells Page Six that Lala is “stunned” by Faith’s allegations because they “never happened.”

“Stowers is looking to promote her podcast,” the insider says, adding that they hope “NBC and Bravo defend themselves vigorously. This is insane.”

In her lawsuit, Faith is being represented by attorneys, Mark Geragos and Bryan Freedman, who are the same attorneys behind Bethenny Frankel’s reality TV reckoning.
