Lisa Vanderpump is dropping bombs about the former cast members of Vanderpump Rules. She revealed that she hasn’t spoken to Stassi Schroeder. Also, she hinted that Bravo fired Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright. This is new information for fans.
Meanwhile, viewers are waiting for the return of Pump Rules. For now, it’s dead on arrival. Both the Bravo firings and the coronavirus pandemic have put the show on hold. While SUR has since reopened, Vanderpump’s other restaurants are reportedly struggling.
However, the restaurateur has provided an update on one of her establishments.

Lisa Vanderpump is feeling hopeful about the future despite her struggles. She is also waving 2020 behind since it hit her businesses hard. In addition, Bravo fired Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni for their past racially insensitive remarks. Just months later, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright announced their exits from the show. But according to Vanderpump, they didn’t “leave” by choice.
“Wasn’t I surprised what they decided? Well, if you put it like that, yeah. I would have been really surprised,” Vanderpump told Us Weekly on Monday, March 15. “Who makes the rules? It’s not me. … Bravo, they produce the show. Even though I’m an executive producer on it, you know, they make most of the decisions.”
In December 2020, Jax and Brittany released statements on their respective Instagram accounts. Fans noticed that the statements were similar in writing. Brittany claimed that they couldn’t write whatever they wanted. Meanwhile, Jax told a fan that they left on their own accord. In that same interview, Vanderpump revealed that she has not heard from Stassi Schroeder.
“I haven’t spoken to her. I did reach out to her a couple of times, but she never responded after she was let go,” the Oversized With Lisa Vanderpump star said. “And that’s her choice, you know. That’s OK.”
