It’s been a day since Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni have been axed from Vanderpump Rules. Andy Cohen, who hosts the reunion to every episode, is standing behind the network’s decision.
There has been a question as to why Stassi wasn’t fired years ago when she publicly criticized both Black Lives Matter and the Me Too movement.
Just to refresh your memory, Schroeder wanted to know why black people were making everything about them at the Oscars. Additionally, she claimed that women were making the Me Too movement a male witch hunt and said that ‘no one’ could make her perform oral sex on them.
She was able to get away with an apology but since this new wave of Black Lives Matter support was triggered by the murder of George Floyd — non-POC and companies are looking inward to work on systemic racism.
Faith Stowers shared her story about her time on and after Vanderpump Rules where she revealed Stassi and Kristen called local authorities and military police on her for a crime she didn’t commit.
Meanwhile, Max and Brett’s past racist and homophobic tweets were excused by Lisa Vanderpump and Tom Sandoval but were revisited when fans called for Schroeder, Doute, Boyens, and Caprioni to be fired.
Andy took to his Sirius XM radio show to stand behind Bravo for doing the right thing and remind fans that he is not in charge of programming or executive producing anymore so he has no say in who gets hired or fired.
‘There’s so much happening in the Bravo universe. I will say this — so much talk about Vanderpump Rules and then of course the reunion ended up airing last night. I will say this about what happened. I absolutely support Bravo’s decision, I think it was the right decision. I’m not in charge of programming at Bravo anymore. I am not an executive producer of Vanderpump Rules. I don’t have anything to do with the show except I love it and that I host the reunions. I don’t produce the show so what I want people to know is I have no say in hiring and firing. There is a lot more to discuss and we’re already having those discussions.’
It’s great to see that Bravo is finally taking accountability for its employees actions.
