The Vanderpump Rules drama continues!!
Bri Dellinger, an editor on the Bravo series, revealed she has been fired by the show after admitting to embarrassing star Scheana Shay.
According to multiple Bravo-focused blogs and fan screenshots, in a since-deleted open letter on the Reality TV Therapist website, Dellinger wrote:
“To any of the cast members who wanted me out: I’m out! To the critics who have made it their mission to get me fired: you succeeded in your short-sighted mission and solved nothing. I’ve been removed from the show I love and, while it is a heart-break for me because I genuinely loved editing this show, it will not ruin me professionally, nor will it change the editing of the show at all.”
This all comes after the Emmy Award nominee first made headlines earlier this month when she spilled the tea about editing the popular series during an appearance on the Twisted Plot Podcast, telling host Evelyn Marley at the time:
“If Scheana knew what was good for her, she’d befriend me because my favorite game is finding all of the embarrassing things that Scheana does and putting them all in. [The editors] joke that Scheana’s memoir will be Death By a Million Embarrassments. We’ve shown a lot of her story. … I understand why she’s bitter in some ways. You know, we do poke fun at her, but she’s just so funny.”
She went on to allege that much of the cast never went out of their way to befriend her or other behind the scenes team members:
“They [the cast] don’t really think about or talk to us at all. I feel like they should totally want to be friends with me. I know everything about them. Oh, wait! Maybe that’s why they don’t want to be friends with me, [but] it must be really creepy to talk to an editor who’s been looking at your face, like, 50 hours a week.”
You’d think they would want to, especially if they want their good side getting on air in the end!! The whole conversation was a bit confusing, TBH, as Dellinger added she had been pining to become close with Stassi Schroeder:
“I was like, ‘I am totally going to be friends with Stassi.’ No, that didn’t happen. Like, I met her at the premiere parties and she doesn’t care about me — nor does anybody.”
