‘Vanderpump Rules’: Stassi Schroeder’s Brother Nikolai Says His Family Is ‘Heartbroken’
Looking distraught and exhausted, Stassi Schroeder‘s younger brother Nikolai Schroeder released a video asking Vanderpump Rules fans and Faith Stowers to forgive his sister. He added that he hates to see his sister and family so upset. And hoped to find a way for fans and the community to forgive her.
Stassi Schroeder was fired from Vanderpump Rules after former cast member and SURver, Faith Stowers revealed on an Instagram Live that Schroeder and Kristen Doute reported her to the police for crimes she did not commit in 2018.
“There was this article on Daily Mail where there was an African American lady,” Stowers, who is African American, said earlier this month, CNN reports. “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.”
Nikolai Schroeder asks the community to come together
Although his sister released a statement apologizing to Stowers, she, along with three other cast members were fired by Bravo. Nikolai Schroeder explains in a three-minute video, shared on Instagram that his sister and family are distraught. He addresses the Bravo community, Lisa Vanderpump, and anyone involved in getting his sister fired.
Adding, “Everything that’s going on is getting really bad. And we need to unite together as one and not judge people by the color of their skin. Everyone is equal. There’s no right for this. This isn’t the right way to go.”
Schroeder continues to urge the community to come together. “And love each other as we should, like we have been doing,” he says.
He says his sister is not doing well
Schroeder continues, “My sister is one of the most loving people you will ever meet in your life. And she deeply apologizes for what she said. And I’m so desperate for her to succeed. Because she’s been succeeding so much. And I want her to go as far as she can.”
“I’m asking for another chance for her,” he says. “And she’ll show everyone how good of a person she is and how much she cares about everyone. She likes entertaining people that’s why she does all this TV stuff.”
“My family is heartbroken with what’s been going on with her,” he says. “Everything’s being taken away from her.” Schroeder then turns to ask Stowers to do whatever she can to help his sister too. “Is there any way she can fix anything or do anything that can benefit both of you guys to get her career back and make you live the best life ever?” Adding, “Is there anything that we can do for you, please?”
“I don’t want to see my sister like this anymore,” he says. “Or my family. And I hate staying up until 2 o’clock in the morning but I can’t help it. Again, I am with everybody. I love everybody, I love all you guys. But please, one more chance to forgive her.”
