Stassi Schroeder & Kristen Doute Fired From ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Over Racist Actions Against Faith Stowers; Max Boyens & Brett Caprioni Dropped From Cast

Coming to an unemployment line near you….

Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute have been fired Vanderpump Rules!

Bravo broke the news in a statement to Variety on Wednesday that the longtime cast members— as well as newcomers Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni— have all been cut from the show.

“Bravo and Evolution Media confirmed today that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni will not be returning to Vanderpump Rules,” Variety reported.

Max and Brett got the ax due to Bravo (finally) taking action over the guys’ past racist tweets (that included many uses of the N-word), as well as sexist and homophobic ones, that went viral following the ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Season 8 premiere in January. (Brett and Matt both apologized.) During the recent Season 8 Reunion, Lisa Vanderpump defended her decision not to fire Brett and Max when the tweets resurfaced. 

“If I fired every one of you that have made mistakes, it doesn’t matter to what degree, probably none of you would have a job,” Lisa said at the time.

“Clearly I didn’t make the right call on that one!”

As for Stassi’s and Kristen’s firings, they comes one week after former ‘VP’ cast member Faith Stowers  blasted Stassi and Kristen in an online interview with Floribama Shore star Candace Rice. During the interview, Faith discussed what it was like to be the only African-American cast member on ‘Vanderpump Rules,’ and exposing the mistreatment Stassi and Kristen subjected her to, most notably the times in 2018 they called the police on her and tried to get her arrested for crimes she didn’t commit.

The racist comments Stassi has made over the years on her Straight Up With Stassi podcast also came under fire, causing many of her sponsors to end their relationships with her. (Last week, shaving brand Billie and vitamin company Ritual both ended partnerships with Stassi.) On Tuesday, Variety reported that Stassi has officially been dropped by her agency, United Talent Agency (UTA), as well as her publicist.

“Know anyone who’s hiring?”

Stassi has been with her publicist since the beginning of her media career and was represented by Metro Public Relations since mid-2018. The firm confirmed on Monday it had parted ways with Stassi. 

“She became a client when her publicist joined our company in July 2018,” the statement read. “We made the decision this weekend to part ways with Stassi.” 

“This is by far the most embarrassing thing we’ve ever done… and let me remind you, we’ve both slept with Jax Taylor.”

Both Kristen and Stassi issued apologies on social media following Faith’s interview. However, the apology tour seems to be too little, too late. The backlash from her treatment of Faith has also cost Stassi her guest bridal column for Glamour magazine. The magazine said last week that it had not published any content from Stassi since March 11, “and has no plans to continue at this time.” 

Just this week, partnership deals continued to fall through for the waitress-turned-podcast host, including one with Secret Deodorant, which confirmed they had parted ways with Stassi when responding to comments on the company Instagram page — comments calling for the company to take action in response to Stassi’s behavior. 

“We find these comments and actions offensive and inexcusable,” the brand stated. “We have ended out relationship with this influencer. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.” 

According to Reality Blurb, Stassi has also received the boot from her Skrewball Whiskey partnership. In screenshot shared on Twitter, the “mom and pop” brand not only confirmed that it was severing ties with Stassi, but it explained why it was so important for the owners to do so. 

” … The founders have put their entire life savings in order for Skrewball to become a reality. Steve was born in Cambodia and lived in a refugee for majority of childhood after surviving a disease that paralyzed his leg over night,” the company stated. “Skrewball is the only liquor company in America that is minority owned, women owned, and disable owned. We are committed to being part of the solution and taking immediate action against any inequality and racism. Please rest assure, swift actions will be taken. We will no longer be advertising with Stassi.” 

While Stassi’s partnership with with JustFab “expired” last year, the company said Tuesday it has “taken the action of removing her imagery across all channels.” 

Kristen, Stassi, Brett and Max have yet to release statements on their firings.

  1. Good! Consideration, being kind and courtous and a plain being a decent human was sorely lacking in society. People were doing the most obnoxious things for likes and the gram. Society would not last much longer on that dangerous crash course that attention seeking put us on. Vicki and Tamara were fired, hopefully Nene Leakes and all the other toxic, poisonous personality fall like dominoes.The correction has been happening long before the riots and I hope this is the new dawn of appreciation for life and mankind. We cannot leave this hateful mess for our children to inherit.

  2. Uh oh, hope Bo can make those high mortgage payments now since wifey is out of her jobs.

    On a serious note, I don’t care for any of those characters on VR but I find it annoying how all these companies all of a sudden are jumping on flaming runaway band wagons ??‍♀️

    1. Money talks and bullshiat walks. When people started speaking with their money advertisers listened. Same with Jenelle, once you hit the sponsors pockets they will do what needs to be done.

  3. I greatly dislike these women and am glad their awful behaviour is no longer being rewarded. However the hypocrisy of the businesses that have dropped them is breathtaking. They had every opportunity to drop them after these events happened, or even do due diligence-they didn’t keep it secret, they boasted about it, Faith was also very vocal at the time. Just no one was bothered. Also that walking STI Jax needs to fess up and apologise as well.

  4. Do they even have a show anymore? I really liked the show, but seems like it’s time to end it now. The show went on without Stassi before, but now barely any of them even still work at SUR and there is a huge age gap with the OGs and new cast.

    1. Also Doridiot. She has been called out on her Instagram for a post. Why is JaxAss and his hick wife not fired? They are involved in all this. I bet James is having a GREAT day!

          1. [* Shield plugin marked this comment as “Trash”. Reason: Failed Bot Test (expired) *]
            I actually like the person Lala has grown into. She was insufferable before, but sober works for her.

  5. Dang…these major organizations aren’t messing around. I am interested to see if Lisa is going to say anything else about why Max and Brett’s firing. I will say, I was pretty shocked when Brett got caught using racial slurs. I loved watching him with Carli Bybel on YouTube when they were dating, and he always seemed like a really nice guy that had a good heart. Fooled me.

  6. I’m amazed that they actually got fired! I’m glad they did but it’s unfortunate that it was only done after BLM protests and not before. If left to their own devices, clearly bravo and LVP would have continually made excuses for their behavior like they have done for years.

  7. This has made my day!!! Bye Bitches!!! I have never used a racial slur in my entire life, nor called the police on people for revenge!
