Andy Cohen Hints He Regrets Firing ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Stars!

Andy Cohen appears that he regrets firing Vanderpump Rules star back in June as he noted that it would have been 'more interesting' for viewers to witness them address their controversies on the show's ninth season.  

“It’s more interesting to sit in the moment with people that you have a rooting interest in and watch them find their way than it is just turning out the lights and forgetting it existed,” he told the New York Times.

Cohen also addressed the 'homophobic' pastor Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright had originally chosen to officiate their 2019 wedding.

“It didn’t seem so shocking to me that someone’s family pastor in Kentucky was homophobic,” he explained. “I’m not condoning homophobia. I’m saying it exists.” He went on to add that the network has “been able to build a big tent” when it comes to housing a variety of points of view — but that it has led to calls for the cancellation of several different shows.

In June, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired for accusing former co-star Faith Stowers of being a woman wanted by the police with Schroeder admitting she called the authorities on Stowers. Schroeder and Doute have both issued public apologies for their past racially insensitive actions towards Stowers.

Meanwhile, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were fired after old racist and homophobic tweets resurfaced last winter.

In December 2020, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright announced they were leaving the show.
