Brett Caprioni Speaks Out After Being Fired From Vanderpump Rules!

Brett Caprioni spoke out for the first time since Bravo fired him from Vanderpump Rules over his past racist and homophobic comments. “While I’m disappointed to no longer be part of the cast, I respect Bravo’s decision,” he said in a statement to Us Weekly.

“I continue to be truly sorry for the insensitive comments I made in the past and have worked within my community to repair the damage I’ve caused. I have learned a lot and grown from the experience but understand that it’s not enough. I will continue to do more regardless of my affiliation with VPR because it’s the right thing to do.”

In a separate statement, Caprioni shared some words of appreciation for Lisa Vanderpump.

“I appreciate Lisa for the opportunity she gave me. It all started with her. Her constant support through this journey has meant a lot to me,” shared Caprioni. “She understood that I was a good guy who made a mistake. And, she also believed in my capacity to learn from it and change. For that, I will always be grateful.”

A source close to the situation reveals that Caprioni’s employment status at SUR is still to be determined.

Bravo announcedon Tuesday, June 9, that Caprioni, Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Max Boyens “will not be returning to Vanderpump Rules” for season 9.

Caprioni and Boyens made headlines in January after fans resurfaced the their old tweets containing racist, homophobic and mysoginicstic comments.

Meanwhile, Schroeder and Doute were ousted for falsely reporting their former co-star Faith Stowers — the series’ first and only black cast member — to the police in 2018 for a crime she did not commit. The incident had come to light again earlier this month when Stowers talked about it during an Instagram Live chat.
