Lisa Vanderpump has broken her silence.
And, in the process, the reality star and Beverly Hills restaurant maven has admitted that her heart is basically broken from the stunning news that has broken in regard to her hit show.
As Vanderpump Rules fans know well by now, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired from the long-running Bravo program after allegations were made by Faith Stowers.
In these allegations, Stowers detailed her experience working with her ex-castmates, sharing that they were bullies who once called the cops on her for no reason at all.
Stowers, who is black, also delved into other instances of bullying and racism at the hands of Stowers and Doute.
Pretty awful stuff all around, and none of it has been denied by either allegedly guilty party in the last few days.
Citing these charges, along with Bravo's decision to fire the aforementioned cast members, Vanderpump said:
“Over the past two weeks, many things have been brought to my attention, of which I and many others were previously unaware."
"It was necessary for me to be quiet until now, until decisions had been made. Now I can freely speak from the heart."
"As we’ve seen such devastating sadness that has played out globally, we all have a part to play to create a kinder, more just society."
"My hope is for this generation to treat each other with respect and humanity, and realize that actions have; and should have, consequences.”
We'll see if she and other producers back up their words regarding the second part; Schroeder and Doute's behavior would (hopefully) not be tolerated at any time by any employer.
Tensions have been especially heightened across America of late due to the killing of George Floyd by a white police officer in Minnesota and the subsequent protests that have broken out in response.
Vanderpump added in her Instagram post that she “loves and adores” the ousted employees, but is “deeply saddened by some of the lack of judgment that has been displayed" here.
"As many of you know, after watching me for 10 years, I have always been an equal rights activist and ally – my family, my businesses and I condemn all forms of cruelty, racism, homophobia, bigotry and unequal treatment."
"We’ve never tolerated it in the workplace or our lives."
"While you only see a fraction of our employees on the show, a specific friend group, across all of our companies, we have always been a very diverse group of people – every color, ethnicity and sexual orientation.
"Most of our employees have worked for us for over a decade, and we have become a family; one that embraces and celebrates each other’s differences."
"I am proud of the inclusive company that we’ve created," she adds.
"We will continue to embrace diversity as one of our greatest strengths, and I’m excited to give you deeper look into the multi-faceted fabric of our company in the future."
In addition to Schroeder and Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were also fired from the Bravo series.
Earlier this year, both apologized after a series of old Tweets resurfaced online -- in which the two used the N-word.
In her statement above, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star said that “the world needs to move forward with a kinder generation,” so that everyone can feel “safe, heard and appreciated in their communities."
She concluded as follows:
So much of what has transpired in the world is not right, fair or acceptable.
We all have work to do to create a society we can be proud of and I hope as we venture forward, we strive to live in a world where kindness and compassion are our highest values.
A Bravo spokesperson confirmed on Tuesday that Schroeder and Doute were goners, saying simply in a statement:
"Bravo and Evolution Media confirmed today that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni will not be returning to Vanderpump Rules."
Stassi and Kristen are reportedly devastated by the development.
But good luck finding viewers out there who feel badly for these original cast members.
Stowers, for her part, discussed in a recent Instagram Live session how the duo once called the police on her.
“There was this article on Daily Mail where there was an African American lady. It was a weird photo, so she looked very light-skinned and had these different, weird tattoos,” Stowers recalled.
“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.”
Said Stassi as an apology:
"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.”
On top of being terminated from Vanderpump Rules, many of Schroeder’s endorsements were yanked.
She was also dropped by her agency, UTA, and by her publicist at Metro Public Relations.
As someone who writes on the internet, not very well mind you, but someone who writes on the internet all day, I always find an attack on grammar to be one of the weakest insults in a flame war. It’s like “sure there’s a typo but you get what I mean, let’s focus on the argument at hand, I was rushing and didn’t have my editor to run through my facebook fight rebuttal”.
So doing this is against the core of who I am, however, when Bella Thorne instructs her young audience to watch her new movie at the Drive Thru, I laugh, because as an influential super famous to the young people, a personality with development deals with all kinds of people because of how influential she is to the young people, she should run it through her team.
Not to mention, her job is actress first, so as an actress she should know that Drive Thrus are for burgers and milkshakes and COVID testing, where Drive-Ins are for NECKING like your parents did in the 1940s.
Here’s a clip from the movie…Edgy.

Everyone is giving Heather Graham all this hype for her bikini selfie that she posted at 50 years old.
It is arguably badly photoshopped like you’d expect from a 50 year old figuring out social media. I have been on the internet a long time and I have seen the older women of facebook basically erase their faces, giving themselves a totally hilarious “glow”, to look younger and Heather Graham’s bikini pic has a lot of that vibe.
The real Austin Power’s cast member we need to celebrate is the 55 year old Liz Hurley, who at 5 years older than Heather Graham looks about 35 years younger than Heather Graham.
Keep in mind, I was a huge Heather Graham fan at her peak and thought she was the hottest, even hotter than Liz Hurley, but when it comes to aging, Liz Hurley is the actual winner in this bikini portion of older actresses in bikinis.

Christina Milian posted these pictures in what I assume is a modern version of a sports bra, but I can’t be to sure, my days working at the bra shop were thwarted when I insisted on helping girls try on their bras in the changing room I’d walk in on unannounced. You know just TOO darn helpful reminder that nice guys finish last.
She is looking amazing, even though I don’t think it looks anything like herself. She’s older, possibly photoshopped, a new mom. There are plenty of reasons why my vision of Christina Milian is different and I blame the DIP IT LOW music video for that.
I am not too sure why her jean shorts are unbuttoned, maybe it’s a look, maybe it’s because she ate a big lunch and they don’t fit comfortably, or maybe because she hasn’t gone back to her pre-pregnancy weight and her old shorts don’t fit but still look good, even anything, unbuttoned shorts a new level of racy that we can hope becomes a trend!

Seniesa Estrada is a pro boxer from LA who teamed up with Instagram influencer Kinsey Wolanski to film, in my opinion, one of her best stunts ever. Kinsey is the girlfriend of VITALY, some prankster who hangs out with all the hot models and gets them to perform weird and sometimes super racy pranks. Kinsey is best known for the time she streaked the field at some soccer game which also resulted in the biggest veggie caught on camera. Since her streaking went viral she’s turned herself into an influencer while maintaining the comedy/stunt aspect of her feed. I’m not a huge fan of the “prank” videos but this one is surely her best. Watch as she gets boddied by the incredible Seniesa and the bruise she’s left with afterwards.

Last week we saw Gigi Hadid’s mirror selfie taken for British Vogue as a part of their online auction to raise money for NHS Charities Together and the NAACP by choosing a look from their wardrobes and auctioning it off, all while they document it for the virtual event.
This week, Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel took her own mirror selfie for the online event and she showed off her innovative fashion skills by wearing her Chanel purse as a top! Stella Maxwell also took part in the auction and wore her New York Yankee’s inspired outfit in a sexy mirror shot, as well as Irina Shayk who took was on the same brain wave as Candice and wore her Chanel bag as a top too! Great minds think alike right?

Vanessa Hudgen’s Trainer Isaac Calpito Shares the Sculpting Routine That Has the Entire Internet HookedThese days, the hottest celebrity hang is on the Internet and it kicks off each morning at 11 a.m. That's when Isaac Calpito, the sparkly yoga tight-clad, Broadway-trained pro...
Vanessa Hudgens and her friend GG Magree, who I am just learning about now and is apparently some singer from Australia, attended a Black Lives Matter protest together last weekend. The pair put on all black outfits, aside from the white piping on Vanessa’s bodysuit, and matching “GG” face masks. LA’s mayor Eric Garcetti made face masks mandatory in early may which means we will be seeing more of the stars wearing their new favorite fashion accessories. If you’re looking for a mask with some style and comfort be sure to check out Mahalo Masks, they are the Hawaiian shirt of masks and way more stylish than the one Vanessa’s got on.
Looking like Vanessa was ready for a riot, she wore a pair of chunky platform sneakers gearing up to curb stomp racists left right and centre, or maybe just wearing them to look cute. The pair also looked like the spent a lot of time on their protest signs. 2020’s version of arts an crafts is crazy!

Amid the nationwide protests in response to the police murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, a light has been shined on aspects of racial inequality in this country that may otherwise have gone unnoticed by mainstream media.
This has led to some public figures being fired for racist comments or activities.
And it's somehow also led to David Eason and Jenelle Evans whining about how unfair their lives are.
Of course, we suppose we shouldn't be surprised, as just about everything leads to that.
Anyway, Jenelle was fired by MTV last year following a CPS investigation that temporarily cost her custody of her children.
David was let go by the network a year earlier, following an incident in which he hurled homophobic slurs at fans on social media.
In other words, neither of their dismissals had anything to do wih race (though both have long histories of bigoted remarks and actions), but the Easons are still elbowing their way back on stage in order to take the mic away from black activists.
“[MTV] only takes action when it benefits them, they don’t actually care,” David wrote on Instagram this week, as reported by The Ashley's Reality Roundup.
“If they did [Cheyenne] would have never been accepted to ‘Teen Mom.’ Where is the equality with these big corporations?" he continued.
"At this point, MTV needs to be held accountable for their racist behavior and discrimination!”
He's referring to tweets that Cheyenne Floyd posted in 2011 and 2012, years in which she was 19 and 20 years old, respectively.
Fans have called for Floyd to be fired for her remarks, which included a desire to "kill every white person" after watching the racially-charged film The Help.
Obviously, Cheyenne was a very young adult, and her tweets aren't nearly as offensive as what David posted, but that hasn't stopped him from fixating.
“Why do you guys even care about teen mom,” one commenter replied.
“You’ve repeatedly posted about you guys filming a new show and doing your own thing now ur out of mtv contract.”
This remark prompted Jenelle to get involved with some foolishness of her own.
“Because if David was fired for his actions and others are being fired to this day… why not Cheyenne,” she asked. “I’m confused too.”
This conflicts with Jenelle and David's repeated claims that he wasn't fired, and instead chose to leave the show of his own accord.
“But u always said David wasn’t fired and just didn’t want to film,” one commenter pointed out.
“They never officially fired me, basically I had to just assume it on my own,” David replied.
Seems a bit strange that he would still be so hung up on a job that he quit, but since when have Jenelle and David been known to lie?
Naturally, David didn't stop with demanding that Cheyenne be fired.
He also pleaded with MTV to terminate Young and Pregnant stars Ashley Jones and Bar Smith, both of whom accused Jenelle and David of being racist.
David apparently thinks Bar's full name is Barbara, but that's not even the funniest thing about all of this.
No, the funniest thing is, and always will be, David himself, still whining about a job he "quit" two years ago.
We should be thanking him for the unintentional hilarity in these trying times.
At least he's still useful in that respect!
Eva Longoria may be a 45 year old mom who has been married 3 times, but she is also Eva Longoria.
I was never a huge fan of hers, I thought she came with a lot of hype, but I guess I wasn’t watching The Young and the Restless back in 2001 when she was likely at her hottest. I was instead introduced to her like the majority of people as Gabriell on Desperate Housewives back in 2004, which is funny to think back on, because it was a pre-Netflix even a pre-Facebook era, when Network TV still had it’s hand around all of our throats and forced us into watching things we’d never watch now that we have a choice. I clearly remember watching episodes of this show, but 15 years later, I’d never watch anything remotely as bad as that and I am not all that different of a person, my tastes not refined, I just have options! We all have options.
I didn’t realize how famous Eva Longoria was until meeting a group of guys from Europe who would go on and on about how America’s hottest babe is Eva Longoria, this was a few years after Housewives was off the air and I was like Eva Longoria? What? not realizing how much international success / fame she had.
So I know that despite my opinion of her, people out there freaking love her, so they’d be happy to know she’s working on her fitness, which means working on showing off her booty, so take it in since at 45 it’s not going to last forever!
Here are some pictures of her from 2004 FHM for a memory of what was!

Like many of us who have been on quarantine for the last few months, Rita Ora is tired of staying still and took to the ‘gram to show off her toned abs after a gruelling workout. The UK singer captioned the photos “Keep Moving” to encourage her fans to do the same. Rita has been showing off her abs for a while, always in a little bikini or crop top, I guess when you work out like she does showing off your toned little body is just the icing on the health cake!
