It has been recently claimed by Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder that they were not fired from the Vanderpump Rules three months after Bravo publicly cut all the ties with them amid backlash from racist actions and comments in their past. The former reality personality claimed by writing on Instagram on Thursday that she was not technically fired from the network.
She added that they made a decision not to renew their contracts and that was what they chose. Her denial came on the same day on which Schroeder, who is now pregnant with her first child, revealed in her first interview on The Tamron Hall Show, since it was announced by Bravo in the month of June that she is no longer going to be a part of the show.
Schroeder told Hall that she is someone who messed up quite a few times and she is the reason why she is in this situation. She thinks a lot of people wanted her to focus on cancel culture and whether she was a victim or not, and it is not how she feel at all. Schroeder added that throughout this whole thing she recognizes, that she never felt like she was a racist, she does not have hate in her heart, but she recognizes that she was not anti-racist. She was not, and that is something she has been learning throughout all of this.
Vanderpump Rules | What Did Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder Claim?
Schroeder and Doute were both criticized widely in the month of June after the former co-star, Faith Stowers, who is a Black woman, recalled a story that Schroeder had told publicly on a podcasting which she and the author of He’s Making You Crazy called the police and military on her after seeing a story about another Black woman, who had committed the crime. Stowers revealed on Instagram live that there was this article on Daily Mail where there was an African American lady. She added that it was a weird photo, so she looked very light-skinned, and she had these different and weird tattoos. Continuingly she said that they showcased her, and she guessed that this woman was robbing people.
Doute claimed on Instagram on Thursday that the police were not called. She continued,
“There was never a police report, the police never had her name, so she was never in harm’s way.“
