“Vanderpump Rules” star Tom Sandoval is finally talking about Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute being fired from the hit Bravo show. Days after telling GQ he would not discuss their exit, he’s changed his mind and spilling the tea. Stassi and Kristen, who is Tom Sandoval’s ex-girlfriend, were let go from the network after a racist incident involving former co-star Faith Stowers was brought to light. Now, Sandoval says the future of “Pump Rules” is unknown and everyone, including the cast, will have to ” wait and see” what happens.
Speaking openly about Bravo canning the two stars, Tom Sandoval addressed the situation to St. Louis’ News 4 in an exclusive interview. Tom grew up there and was in town helping local bars and restaurants.
Calling the whole situation “crazy,” Tom Sandoval, who’s appeared on “Vanderpump Rules” alongside Stassi and Kristen since 2013, admitted that their departure definitely changes the dynamic of the series. “It definitely changes things,” he told the outlet, “and honestly, we’re just going to have to wait and see what happens.”
Just two weeks ago, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired after Faith Stowers recalled an incident in 2018 where the “Pump Rules” duo called the cops on her because she looked like a black woman who was wanted for robbery.
Fans were outraged and demanded the network ax them both from the hit series, even after they both issued separate apologies. Since then, Stassi and Kristen have lost endorsements, deals, and their reps. But it wasn’t all bad news for Stassi because days later, it was revealed that she was pregnant and expecting her first child with her fiancé, Beau Clark.
Their exit from “Vanderpump Rules” has only strengthened Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute’s strained friendship. The two were spotted ringing in the expecting mom’s 32nd birthday alongside their former castmates Jax Taylor and Katie Maloney on Wednesday, June 24.
The trio seemed in good spirits as paparazzi caught them all arriving at Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz home to kick off the birthday celebrations. Despite being fired, this birthday was extra sweet. Just days ago, Stassi Schroeder and Beau revealed it’s a girl!
