Vanderpump Rules’ Stassi Schroeder dumped by publicist and agent after Faith Stowers accused her of racist behavior – The Sun
VADERPUMP Rules' Stassi Schroeder was dumped by her publicist and agent after Faith Stowers accused her of racist behavior.
The reality TV star came under fire after her own account of calling the cops on her black castmate emerged this week.
UTA dropped Stassi, 31, as a client, following Faith's accusations, Variety reported on Monday.
The PR company confirmed the news and stated: "She became a client when her publicist joined our company in July 2018.
"We made the decision this weekend to part ways with Stassi."
Stassi had been previously represented by Metro Public Relations since 2008 but moved on to UTA.
Stassi has also found herself losing other sponsorship deals with the shaving brand Billie and vitamin startup Ritual.
Glamour magazine also has "no plans to continue" with a planned partnership focusing on Stassi's upcoming wedding to Beau Clark, Page Six reported.
Former SUR employee Faith called out Stassi and her costar Kristen Doute during an Instagram Live, telling Floribama Shore star Candace Rice how they "attacked" her.
Faith explained that Stassi and Kristen called the authorities on her after seeing a report about an African American woman who was allegedly drugging and robbing men in LA.
The Bravo star said: "There was this article where there was an African-American lady. It was a weird photo, so she looked very light-skinned and had these different, weird tattoos. I guess this woman was robbing people.
"And they called the cops and said it was me. This is like, a true story. I heard this from, actually, Stassi during an interview."
Stassi herself talked about calling the cops in an interview on the B**** Bible podcast in 2018.
The Next Level Basic writer said she and Kristen had "solved a crime" when they wrongfully accused Faith.
They compared a grainy CCTV photo of the suspected criminal to Faith and decided it was the same woman.
"We are like, we just solved a f**king crime,' Stassi said in the now-deleted episode, reported by People.
"We start calling the police. The police don’t give a f***."
Kristen also tweeted about the situation, saying: "Hey tweeties, doesn’t this ex #pumprules thief look familiar?
"Someone put her on mtv & gave her a platform for press. I didn’t wanna go there but I’m going there."
Faith said during the Instagram Live that she thinks the reason for Stassi's "attacks" was because of her affair with Jax Taylor in season four, while he was with now-wife Brittany Cartwright.
Faith said: "I felt like after their friend did something that we both were involved in that he's done like, a thousand times, they wanted to attack me instead of him.
"They wanted to attack, attack, attack, attack, attack. I was wrong, I was this, I was that, calling me names, saying my hair was nappy, which is weird coming out of their mouths."
She went on: "And I believe it hit the ceiling for me, and made me really want to run for the hills, when Kristen and Stassi decided they were going to call the cops on me."
"I [had] left the show [at that point]. I was invited back to tell my truth, but decided it wasn't going to do anything for me. So I ended up not coming back, I decided to go over to MTV.
"Once I did that, I felt like they got upset with me."
Following the serious accusations, Stassi took to Instagram to publicly apologize to Faith.
She posted: "Racially insensitive comments from my past have resurfaced. It is important that I continue to take accountability for what I have said and done, while pushing myself to do better.
“I have grown significantly from the person I was then, and I am still filled with remorse and regret for the hurt I caused.
“I am grateful for the people in my life that continue to check me and push me to evolve into a more educated person,” the reality star wrote.
She continued: "My emotions over something that happened between our friends outweighed my logic, and there is no excuse for that.
“I did not recognize then the serious ramifications that could have transpired because of my actions.”
Stassi then addressed her ex VPR castmate specifically: ”What I did to Faith was wrong. I apologize and I do not expect forgiveness.
"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,” she concluded.
Bravo has yet to comment on the situation.
