‘Vanderpump Rules’ Fans React to Stassi Schroeder Pregnancy News After Getting Fired
Stassi Schroeder was fired from Vanderpump Rules this week after her former co-star accused her of calling the cops on her. At the same time, old audio from a podcast resurfaced where she minimized the struggle African Americans faced in Hollywood. The severe backlash from fans ensued and Bravo made the decision to sever ties with Schroeder. However, days later she made headlines again, but this time with news she was pregnant.
Why did Stassi Schroeder get fired?
The Schroeder and Kristen Doute fallout began after former Vanderpump Rules star Faith Stowers recalled an incident. During an interview with Floribama Shore star Candace Rice, Stowers revealed Schroeder and Doute called the police on her.
“There was this article on Daily Mail where there was an African American lady,” Stowers explained during 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.”
“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. 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 apologizes
Following the backlash that Schroeder received, she issued a public apology to Stowers, who said she never received a call personally.
“My emotions over something that happened between out friends outweighed my logic, and there is no excuse for that,” she said 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.”
Stowers was involved with Jax Taylor who cheated on her then-girlfriend Brittany Cartwright with the former. The Vanderpump Rules girls took Cartwright and Taylor’s side while putting the blame on Stowers. Schroeder knew that the apology wasn’t going to erase what she did to Stowers, but said she was going to work on growing.
“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.”
The apology was well-intentioned but Bravo still announced she was being axed from season 9 of Vanderpump Rules.
Stassi Schroeder is pregnant and fans react
After announcing that Schroeder wasn’t returning to the show that made her famous, she then made headlines again. This time around, it was revealed that the former Bravolebrity was pregnant. After the news broke, fans had a lot of thoughts to share.
“I hope that baby can wash dishes and cook Day 1, somebody gotta earn a check,” a viewer quipped.
“I would bet pretty good money that Stassi isn’t pregnant,” a fan noted. “This is a Hail Mary pass to get back on the show and she figures she can get pregnant soon enough.”
“Super disappointed in Stassi,” a Twitter user mentioned. “A supreme pregnant bridezilla is really the season we’ve been waiting for and deserve.”
“If Stassi was pregnant, she was pregnant before she got fired and would have announced it,” another viewer observed.
“Stassi is a racist sociopath who has done and said terrible things for years,” another fan wrote. “Whether she is pregnant or not, no one cares about her anymore. The network and sponsors have spoken. She’s over. Faking a pregnancy isn’t nearly as bad as calling cops on [an] innocent person.”
Schroeder has not officially confirmed her pregnancy.
