🚨 FIRED!!! 🚨 . . As per Variety: “One week after former ‘Vanderpump Rules’ cast member Faith Stowers revealed that two of the show’s original cast members, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute, had reported her to the police for a crime she’d had nothing to do with, a Bravo spokesperson confirmed to Variety that Schroeder and Doute won’t return to the show. Additionally, new cast members Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni, whose past racist tweets were uncovered after the most recent season premiered in January, also will not return. On Tuesday, Bravo issued a statement saying, ‘Bravo and Evolution Media confirmed today that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni will not be returning to Vanderpump Rules.’” . 🤯 Thoughts❓
Andy gave an update to US Weekly regarding his relationship status with the on-again friends.
Two months after the racist incident involving their former colleague, Faith Stowers, caused them to lose their jobs, Bravo’s daddy he opened up more about the former SURvers. “I texted them right at the beginning, but I owe them a reach out.”
Andy’s feelings moving forward:
IF (yes, it’s a big ‘if’) VPR returns for a 9th season, things are going to feel much different for the father of one. “I’m going to miss both of them a lot on the show,” adding “I had a lot of fun with them on Watch What Happens Live.”
Though 2/3 of the Witches of Weho are no longer employed with Bravo, Andy believes the show’s success was thanks to this duo.
“However it ended, you cannot take away how important the two of them have been to that show.”
I can personally attest to this. Just yesterday, I apologized to my husband for being ‘season one Stassi,’ and I use the term ‘suck a d!ck’ in Kristen’s voice every time I get cut off in traffic. These gals may be gone from our screens, but not from our lexicons.
