Stassi Schroeder Doesn’t Feel She’s A ‘Victim’ After ‘VPR’ Firing

Bravo, News, Reality TV, Vanderpump Rules

Stassi Schroeder broke her silence since her firing from Vanderpump Rules. Her first-ever interview took place on The Tamron Hall Show on Thursday, September 17. Tamron Hall did not let Stassi off the hook easily. She asked tough questions and addressed all of Stassi’s past comments and actions.

The former reality star revealed that she’s hired a diversity coach. While she claims she’s not a racist, she realized that she’s not “anti-racist,” which is something that she’s learning. Stassi is also taking responsibility for her past mistakes.

TV Shows Ace previously reported that Stassi would address “cancel culture.” However, the fans weren’t happy. They wanted her to focus on racism and she did. Here’s what Stassi said during her interview.

Stassi Schroeder doesn’t feel that she’s a “victim” of “cancel culture”

The VPR alum broke her silence for the first time since her firing. Stassi Schroeder has kept quiet on social media. She’s only commented on her friends’ Instagram post. She only kept her followers up-to-date on her pregnancy journey through her Instagram Stories. Now, Stassi is finally addressing her firing for her past racist actions and comments. The 32-year-old said she felt she had to process the situation before she spoke out. She also took responsibility for her racist actions.

“People expected me to just understand everything immediately and things like that take time. And I felt like it would be better for me to take the time to get a greater understanding of everything and the issues before I opened my mouth again,” Stassi explained to Tamron Hall. “I’m someone who messed up quite a few times. I am the reason why I am in this situation.”

Stassi assumed that people wanted her to focus on the “cancel culture” movement. But she doesn’t see herself as a “victim.” Instead, she wants to open up to her mistakes. And she wants to learn from her past.

Vanderpump Rules alum doesn’t think she’s racist

Stassi Schroeder addressed everything during the interview. Tamron Hall wanted to hold the Bravo personality accountable. Stassi made headlines when Faith Stowers recalled an incident in 2018 when Stassi and Kristen Doute reported her to the police for a crime she didn’t commit. Along with Stassi’s racially insensitive comments, Bravo decided to cut ties with both women, including Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni. Stassi claimed she’s not a racist, and expressed that it’s difficult for people to see her as one.

“That is absolutely the hardest part, just going out to a restaurant or going to the grocery store and wondering if that’s what people think,” Stassi said. “And throughout this whole thing I recognize, I never felt like I was a racist, I don’t have hate in my heart, but I recognize that I wasn’t anti-racist. I wasn’t, and that’s something I’ve been learning throughout all of this.”

Stassi stated that she’s not doing this to better her image. She wants to be a “better person” for her daughter. She wants to turn into a person that she’s “proud” of. The Next Level Basic author wants to be “part of the solution” since she doesn’t see herself as a “victim of cancel culture.” Stassi revealed that she and her fiance Beau Clark will talk to their child about racial injustice.

Stassi is “embarrassed” by her past comments

Stassi Schroeder addressed her controversial comments. She revealed that she’s “embarrassed” for the things she said. During the interview, Tamron played an old podcast episode from when Stassi criticized the #OscarsSoWhite movement. At the time, she said she was “really sick of everyone making everything about race.” Stassi called herself a “Karen” who originally thought all lives mattered. But she’s realized she was wrong in the way she was thinking.

Back in 2018, Stassi lost sponsors when she posted a photo of her “Nazi Chic” selfie. Tamron asked her about the photo. Stassi explained that it was a “poor joke” made among her and her friends. She took full responsibility and said that she’s a “privileged person” who needs to educate herself. While Stassi was poking fun at herself in the photo, she didn’t realize how offensive it came across.

Schroeder explains why she called the cops on Faith

Tamron Hall told Stassi Schroeder that she and Kristen Doute put Faith’s life at risk by calling the cops on her. Stassi claims she didn’t realize it was a race issue. She was only trying to solve a crime since she loves mysteries and inserting herself in other people’s lives. She didn’t understand the consequences. Stassi also claimed that it wasn’t just the photos published on Daily Mail that made them assume that Faith caused the crime.

“There were other reasons why we had thought that,” Stassi said before adding, “I legitimately thought we were solving crime. I literally thought that. I was completely wrong.”

Stassi understands what she did was wrong. She has since taken the steps to “better” herself. She shared with Tamron that she’s working with a diversity coach, who she meets weekly via Zoom. As for her career, Stassi wants to bring her podcast, Straight Up With Stassi, back but with a goal of making a “difference.”
