Andy Cohen is breaking his silence following the Vanderpump Rules firings. The Bravo character helps Bravo in its choice of firing Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute from the present. Their axings got here after fan backlash over accusations made by former forged member Faith Stowers.
“There’s so much happening in the Bravo universe,” Cohen mentioned on his Sirius XM present. “So much talk about Vanderpump Rules and then, of course, the reunion ended up airing last night. I will say this about what happened. I absolutely support Bravo’s decision, I think it was the right decision.”
Cohen is the face of Bravo and lots of followers suppose he has the ability to rent and hearth folks on the community. However, the Radio Andy host reminded his listeners that he’s not concerned with the present, he solely hosts the reunions.
“I need to remind folks as a result of I’ve been getting so many tweets and messages and no matter about Vanderpump Rules and about Southern Charm and different exhibits. I’m not accountable for programming at Bravo anymore,” Cohen added. “I’m not an Executive Producer of Vanderpump Rules. I don’t have something to do with the present besides I find it irresistible and that I host the reunions.”
What led to Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute getting fired?
The fall out began when Stowers recalled her time on Vanderpump Rules. In an interview with Candace Rice from Floribama Shore, Stowers revealed Doute and Schroeder known as the cops on her.
“There was this article on Daily Mail where there was an African American lady,” Stowers defined throughout an Instagram Live interview. “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. This is like, a true story. I heard this from actually Stassi during an interview.”
Stowers was not in pleasant phrases with Schroeder and Doute they usually claimed they have been doing one thing good by profiling the previous.
“It was just funny, because they thought it was me because it was a black woman with a weave,” Stowers added. “So they just assumed it would be me, and they called the cops on me,” she mentioned. “It didn’t work, so they were upset about that. I get people being upset [about the affair], but I didn’t understand why I was getting so much heat and the man wasn’t.”
Stassi Schroeder points an apology
Days later, Schroeder issued a public apology to Stowers, recognizing her mistake and the unfavorable implications that would’ve had.
“My emotions over something that happened between out friends outweighed my logic, and there is no excuse for that,” she mentioned of calling the police on Stowers. “I did not recognize then the serious ramifications that could have transpired because of my actions. What I did to Faith was wrong.”
“I apologize and I do not expect forgiveness,” she added. “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.”
