Members of the “Vanderpump Rules” cast are under fire after a former cast member revealed the harsh treatment she endured while on the show.
It all started when former Vanderpumper Faith Stowers alleged in an Instagram Live chat last week that Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder called the police on her after they assumed a photo of a suspect looked like the Bravo show’s only black cast member.
“There was this article in the Daily Mail where there was an African American lady,” Stowers explained. “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.”
Back in April 2018, during the time the incident occurred, Doute shared a tweet that appears to validate Stowers’ story.

Both Schroeder and Doute also recalled the incident in now-deleted episodes of the “Bitch Bible” podcast. Stassi also revealed that after the police failed to launch an investigation, they called the military to report Stowers as AWOL.
Following the fierce backlash on social media and after getting dropped by some of her sponsors, Schroeder released an apology on Instagram that says it is “important” for her to “continue to take accountability for what I have said and done, while pushing myself to do better.”
Critics are calling out the similarity in the tone of the apologies and the timing and allege they were both written by their publicist Emily Hess. They say the two only apologized two years later because they were called out amid heightened discourse around Black Lives Matter.
The Instagram page @Accountability4Stassi was created with a bio that reads,
When asked if Stassi or Kristen have reached out to personally apologize, Faith revealed in a DM that they have not.
