Stassi Schroeder And Kristen Doute Have Reportedly Been In Touch Over Vanderpump Rules Firing Scandal — Stassi Was ‘Not Expecting To Be Fired’; Sources Claims She’s ‘Surprised And Upset’

According to sources, Stassi Schroeder was not expecting to get fired from Vanderpump Rules. “Stassi was not expecting to be fired. She is surprised and upset,” a source told Us Weekly, adding that she has “lost a lot of money from losing sponsorships and paid opportunities.”

The site claims that luckily for Stassi and her fiancé Beau Clark, the couple has saved a ton, the insider adds.

Meanwhile, another source claims that Schroeder has kept in touch with Kristen Doute over the past days due to the scandal over the racial scandal.

“Stassi and Kristen have touched base about all of the recent news about them coming out,” a source told Us Weekly. “But their feud is not exactly over.”

Meanwhile, a second insider claims that cutting ties with the reality stars wasn't an easy move for the network. “Stassi, in particular, has become a major piece of the Bravo puzzle over the years, and the network truly enjoyed working with her,” the source notes. “That said, racism and discrimination have no place on Bravo, so Stassi, Kristen, Max and Brett left the powers that be with no other option. The people behind the decision are now discussing ways that Bravo can publicly and more thoroughly address the situation.”

Schroeder and Doute had a fall out on the current season of the Bravo hit reality series due to drama surrounding Doute’s on-and-off relationship with Brian Carter. Schroeder and Doute came under fire earlier this month after former SURver Faith Stowers revealed they falsely accused her of committing a crime in 2018.

“There was this article on Daily Mail where there was an African American lady. It was a weird photo, so she looked very light-skinned and had these different, weird tattoos. They showcased her, and I guess this woman was robbing people. And they called the cops and said it was me,” Stowers recalled via Instagram Live. “It was just funny, because they thought it was me because it was a black woman with a weave. So they just assumed it would be me, and they called the cops on me.”

Both Schroeder and Doute released public apologies to Stowers on Sunday, June 7.

“What I did to Faith was wrong. I apologize and I do not expect forgiveness,” the Next Level Basic author, who also lost several brand deals and was dropped by her PR company, wrote via Instagram. “I am also sorry to anyone else that feels disappointed in me. I am going to continue to look closer at myself and my actions – to take the time to listen, to learn, and to take accountability for my own privilege.”

Meanwhile, Doute wrote that her “actions were not racially driven,” but she “now completely aware of how my privilege blinded me from the reality of law enforcement’s treatment of the black community, and how dangerous my actions could have been to her.”

Variety reported that Stassi’s agency, UTA, and her public relations firm, Metro Public Relations, have dropped her because of her actions toward Stowers. Fuse Literary, Doute’s book agency, has also cut ties with her.

Schroeder and Doute were both fired from Vanderpump Rules on Tuesday, June 9, after eight seasons alongside with Season 8 newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni. The newcomers faced backlash earlier this year when their old racist and homophobic tweets resurfaced.

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

Stassi and Kristen have been on Vanderpump Rules since Season 1. Max and Brett joined Vanderpump Rules for the current Season 8.
