Faith Stowers says Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute called the police on her during Vanderpump Rules.
Vanderpump Rules star Faith Stowers opened up about her experience on the reality show, saying she experienced racism during the series, and that Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute literally called the police on her.
« I believe it hit the ceiling for me, and made me really want to run for the hills, when Kristen [Doute] and Stassi decided they were going to call the cops on me, » she said during an Instagram Live with Candace Renee Rice. « This is when I quit—like, I left the show. I was invited back to tell my truth, but decided it wasn’t going to do anything for me. »
Stowers went on to explain why Schroeder and Doute called the police, and it’s truly just awful:
« There was this article on … Daily Mail where there was an African American lady, » she said, per Us Weekly. « It was like a weird photo, so she looked very light-skinned and had these different, weird tattoos or whatever. They showcased her, and I guess this woman was robbing people … The woman was at large … 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 [….] It was just funny, because they thought it was me because it was a black woman with a weave. So, they just assumed it would be me, and they called the cops on me…It didn’t work, so they were upset about that. »
This is despicable, and unsurprisingly brands are holding Schroeder accountable by cutting ties with her. According to Us Weekly, shaving brand Billie is “ending all partnerships with anyone who isn’t supporting the fight against racism, including Stassi,” and vitamin company Ritual tweeted they they’d « ended the partnership and will be doing more thorough diligence going forward.”
We were not aware and that is unacceptable on our part. We’ve ended the partnership and will be doing more thorough diligence going forward.
