Andy Cohen Believes ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Will Go On Without Stassi Schroeder And Kristen Doute; Says “I Think They’re Going To Have Real Drama” In Season 9!

Andy Cohen believes the upcoming ninth season of Vanderpump Rules will just be fine and will continue without Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute. 

“People were really [harping] on what was real and what was maybe a leap about the last season,” Cohen said on the “Everything Iconic With Danny Pellegrino” podcast on Thursday, November 5, according to Us Weekly. “I think that what has been so brilliant about Vanderpump Rules and why that show is so hard for all the other people who tried to do it, to replicate it … these people all knew each other for so long and all worked for Lisa [Vanderpump] for so long. … It seemed like people were [focused on], ‘Does [this] person really work there and why are they going to Lisa’s to make Pride signs?’ … I think where it goes is … I think they’re going to have real drama built into her reopening this restaurant after a pandemic.”

If you recall, Bravo fired Schroeder and Doute in June due to their past racially insensitive comments. While Vanderpump Rules typically films during the summer, the temporary closure of Vanderpump’s SUR put filming on hold due to COVID-19 pandemic.

“I actually think in an odd way that’s going to create a lot of story that is absolutely real, and they’ll be able to lean into it. And frankly, Stassi and Kristen didn’t work there anymore,” Cohen added. “And they’re both brilliant characters on television. I think it will be interesting to see whose there and whose not and what’s really happening. I think they’ll have a better time doing that and they’ll be a lot of built stuff that’s actually happening.”
