Former Vanderpump Rules star Faith Stowers is ready to make her return to reality TV… and she won’t be wearing a napkin-thin SUR cocktail dress when it happens.
According to Page Six, Faith is making her reality TV comeback with a series centered around Yekim – a black-owned business that sell clothes by designer Martez Malone.
“She wants to use the opportunity to create more black-themed entertainment and help black entrepreneurs – kinda like a Black Lisa Vanderpump,” an insider told Page Six. “She’s been having meetings around town trying to make it happen.”
In the words of Scheana Shay: “It’s all happening,” because TV host Maria Menounos and Maria’s husband Keven Undergaro – both TV producers – have reportedly signed on for the project to serve as executive producers alongside Faith. Maria and Keven have produced several TV series and documentaries and are also the co-creators of AfterBuzz TV – a broadcast network specializing in “after show” podcasts about reality shows.
The news of Faith’s upcoming project comes just months after Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute, two of Faith’s former ‘VPR’ co-stars, were cut from the show after Faith spoke about the mistreatment the pair subjected her to during her brief time on the Bravo series-– most notably in 2018 when Stassi and Kristen reportedly called the police in an attempt to have Faith arrested for crimes she did not commit.
Faith spoke about her experience during an online interview with Floribama Shore star Candace Rice, after which Kristen and Stassi took to social media to address the incident and apologize to their former cast member. However, neither reportedly reached out to Faith directly at that time.
That same month (after Kristen and Stassi had been dropped from the cast), Faith said she respected Bravo for pink-slipping two ‘VPR’ OGs in order to show their support of the Black Lives Matter movement, adding that she “would love to go back on ‘Vanderpump Rules.’”
During a June interview with Page Six, Faith commended the network again, along with MTV –- which airs Ex on the Beach and The Challenge, two other reality shows that Faith has appeared on-– for axing cast members that had made racist remarks in the past.
“I feel so vindicated studios and production are able to see blatant racism and make these positive changes and help move the race forward — help with the fight forward,” she told the site at the time.
As Faith gears up to take on the world of reality TV again, her former co-stars (the ones who weren’t fired, that is) anxiously await the return of
their paychecks ‘Vanderpump Rules.’ While Jax Taylor stated in October that the show was “supposed to start filming” later that month, Bravo reportedly denied his claims and filming for the reality series remains on hold.
Us Weekly confirmed that Faith has had meetings with Bravo about her upcoming show.
“She values the network and wants to keep that door open,” a source told the magazine.
