Bri Dellinger, an editor for Vanderpump Rules, has been fired. This comes after it was revealed that she purposely makes Scheana Marie look bad on the show.
Bri was her own downfall. During a visit to the Twisted Plot podcast, she explained that she purposely takes Scheana’s most cringeworthy moments and couples them with confessionals to embarrass her on the Bravo series.
‘If Scheana knew what was good for her, she’d befriend me because my favorite game is finding all of the embarrassing things that Scheana does and putting them all in … [The editors] joke that Scheana’s memoir will be [called] Death By a Million Embarrassments.’
Although this wasn’t surprising by any means for viewers of the show, it was shocking that Dellinger admitted to it.
Many called for #justiceforscheana by demanding he editor be fired. Even though the Good As Gold singer was advised not to speak on it publicly, she did like a tweet that suggested Bri be demoted.

In a post-and-delete open letter, Dellinger says that she was fired. However, she went on to throw the other editors under the bus on her way out by saying that the way the show is pieced together wouldn’t change.
The letter obtained by Ashley’s Reality Round Up read, in part: ‘To any of the cast members who wanted me out: I’m out!… To the critics who have made it their mission to get me fired: you succeeded in your short-sighted mission and solved nothing. I’ve been removed from the show I love and, while it is a heart-break for me because I genuinely loved editing this show, it will not ruin me professionally, nor will it change the editing of the show at all. Aside from that, whatever else you thought you were accomplishing by getting rid of me, you didn’t..’
It went on to say: ‘The network and higher executives who actually made the calls that you may or may not be happy with will remain absolutely the same. In other words, you have not changed the system.’
What do you think about this Bravo mess?
