Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens & Brett Caprioni Fired From Vanderpump Rules For Racist Actions
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 that Stassi and Kristen will not be returning 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.”
Stassi’s ouster has occurred one day after we reported that her agency, UTA, and her public relations firm, Metro Public Relations, have dropped her because of her actions toward Faith.
During an Instagram Live chat last week, Faith said that in 2018 Stassi and Kristen had called the police to report her for crimes that had been reported in a Daily Mail article about a black woman wanted for theft. The woman pictured in the article was not Faith.
Jax Taylor is still on the show after his participation.
Lisa defended Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni previously: “I do not condone any of the heinous comments made in the past. I am glad they understand the severity of their offenses and have shown utmost remorse and contrition. I embrace a community of diversity and do not tolerate bigotry of any form within my workplace. Max and Brett are both appropriately ashamed of their past obnoxious teenage arrogance and casual use of unacceptable terms. While both have now matured as adults, they have shown remorse for their prior reckless defamatory statements.”
Lisa Vanderpump has not commented as yet on the firings.
