Lisa Vanderpump Addresses ‘Lack On Diversity’ On Vanderpump Rules!

Lisa Vanderpump responded to fans about the lack of diversity on the Vanderpump Rules cast. 

The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star originally tweeted her interest in receiving questions from fans as she prepares to launch her own podcast. In response to her tweet from July 30, a user asked why there was a “lack of diversity” across Vanderpump Rules’ main cast.

“I mean it was mainly straight white people, right?” the fan continued, according to Us Weekly. “And is it coming back after all the firings?”

In defense of the Bravo show, another fan argued that SUR Restaurant currently has “hundreds of staff and are diverse.” The fan then shared that “this particular cast was a group of friends and they were what they were.”

Vanderpump responded in agreement with the second user by writing on Saturday, August 1, “That is so true … also not everybody wants to be in the eye of the storm.”

The news comes after Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni were fired from the Bravo hit reality series. 

Schroeder and Doute came under fire last 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.”

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 after their past racially and homophobic tweets resurfaced on Twitter.

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