Faith Stowers was vindicated. Now she’s reportedly looking for some revenge.
The former Vanderpump Rules star is said to be looking to start her own show in the same vein as her old program. Page Six reports Stowers is in the process of putting together her own Bravo show.
Like Vanderpump Rules it will focus on the employees of a business, during and after work hours. The big difference is that the reality TV star wants to focus on a Black-owned business.
The site pointed out this new program could be quite a juxtaposition. Stowers’ old show is struggling. There are rumors about the cancellation. That means the bullied reality personality could get the last laugh.
Faith Stowers Laughs Last
The reality star was accused of a crime she didn’t commit by her former castmates. Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired by VPR over the summer. They went so far as to file a false police report against Stowers. She was the only Black cast member on the show.
In 2018, Schroeder and Doute noticed a news story about a woman who committed robberies in LA. They reported Stowers for the crime. However, the only thing she had in common with the perp was that they were both women of color.
Cleared of any crime, she wants to come back with a vengeance. “She wants to use the opportunity to create more black-themed entertainment and help black entrepreneurs — kinda like a Black Lisa Vanderpump,” one insider said. “She’s been having meetings around town trying to make it happen.”
There’s a chance Stowers’ show could replace VPR. Indeed, there are questions surrounding the long-running reality TV show. Some doubt it will come back for another season. Cast members being fired for poor judgment is only one of the reasons why.
The pandemic plays a part in Bravo’s hesitance.
‘Vanderpump Rules’ in Trouble?
Earlier this month, reports about Vanderpump Rules surfaced. The firings played a part in negative talk. Finding out a way to shoot scenes while social distancing was another factor.
A source said there’s no timeline to start production. However, that doesn’t mean it’s dead and buried.
Showrunners told the crew the program isn’t canceled. Instead, a delay might be in order. Those same showrunners told the cast to sit tight.
For now, everyone is just waiting to see what happens.
There are some questions that arise from that situation. If Vanderpump Rules can’t go into production, how would Stowers’ show work? Both might wait until later in 2021 to start.
For now, nothing is official. Insiders from all sides have their own idea of what plans are. However, there isn’t certainty on when things get back to normal. The pandemic is still raging. Until it dies down, everyone is in a holding pattern.
