Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute are OUT!

After former Vanderpump Rules cast member Faith Stowers shared that her former co-stars had falsely reported her to the police for a theft crime she did not commit, both will not return to the Bravo series.

In addition, new cast members Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni, who had past racist tweets resurface since the most recent season premiered in January, will not be returning.

On Tuesday, a Bravo spokesperson issued a statement to Variety:

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

For Faith, this moment couldn’t have come any sooner. The former reality TV star expressed to Page Six:

“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. I was in the middle of prayer and I felt a sense of — I know it sounds corny — I felt a sense of glory. I felt God’s presence and I’m seeing now [that the news has been revealed] maybe that is what that was. He gave me a sign of optimism meant to be hopeful and showing that all of this was worth it.”

The 31-year-old concluded:

“I was ready to put myself in the line of fire because I don’t know what will happen if I don’t say anything, but I’m glad I did. Now I’m seeing Bravo follow suit, releasing women that have given crazy ratings for them because they want to be on the right side of history and I’m seeing people are finally hearing us.”

This comes after Stassi was dropped by her agency, UTA, and her public relations firm, Metro Public Relations, following the accusations made by Stowers. MPR shared with the outlet on Monday:

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

In the aftermath of her actions resurfacing, Schroeder has lost partnership deals with Secret Deodorant, the women’s vitamin brand Ritual, and shaving company Billie, which have been confirmed via press statements. Doute’s book agency, Fuse Literary also cut ties with her.

Both former reality stars have issued statements via social media apologizing for their actions, though neither has commented since news broke of their release from the series.

But the hits don’t stop there! MORE insensitive comments made by Stassi have come to light since Faith first shared what the two VPR stars had done to her.

In a now-deleted 2017 episode of her podcast Straight Up With Stassi, the host and Summer House alum Stephen McGee discussed the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag, which began in 2015 as a way to draw attention to the underrepresented communities not receiving recognition for their work during the Academy Awards.

She stated at the time:

“I’m like, really sick of everyone making everything about race. … I’m kind of over it.”

Stassi acknowledged that she is “one person whose not allowed to say that, because I’m a white, privileged, blonde 28-year old,” and continued, explaining that she doesn’t believe award shows should get political:

“Maybe you weren’t nominated because you didn’t do that great of a job in your movie. Like it’s not about race. It’s literally like not about what you look like at all. It’s like your acting ability, so like, what the actual f**k.”

She added:

“Everyone giving their impassioned speeches about race and all of that stuff, I’m like, ‘Why is it always just about African Americans?’ Why aren’t the Asians being like, ‘We’re not represented.’ Why aren’t Native Americans and Latinos being like, ‘We’re not represented.’ And whenever they get upset everyone has to go above and beyond to then make them happy. And I hate saying the word ‘them’ because I’m not … not everybody’s the same. I mean the ones that are out there bitching about things.”

This is the same girl who referenced her own style as ‘Nazi chic,’ which was followed by a non-apology. Are we even surprised?!

But wait, there’s MORE!

As we previously shared, internet sleuths dug up a tweet by Jax Taylor from December 2017 where he accused Stowers of committing the same crimes that Schroeder and Doute did. When a fan asked at the time if Faith would become a mainstay on the series, he replied:

“She’s wanted by the police for grand theft auto and ‘awol’ from military, bad idea to be on a reality show dude. Someone’s going to jail.”

90 Day Fiancé alum Ashley Smith is now calling for the firing of Taylor after resurfacing a comment he left on an IG photo of her husband Jay Smith, in which he racially profiled the TLC star. Jax wrote in 2018:

“Your mans nose is the size of his head…”
