Stassi Schroeder is said to be “looking forward” to her September 17 appearance on The Tamron Hall Show, which will serve as her first public interview since being fired from the cast of Vanderpump Rules after making a series of racially insensitive comments.
As she and her fiancé, Beau Clark, prepare for the January 2021 arrival of their first child, a baby girl, Stassi is ready to break her silence and move forward to the “next chapter” of her life.
“She’s really looking forward to her Tamron Hall interview being put out there because she wants to publicly address the incident that got her fired from [Vanderpump Rules],” a source told Hollywood Life on September 10.
According to the report, Stassi has been taking the past two month to learn from her past mistakes and grow as a person.
“Stassi has taken this time to learn and grow from the situation, and she is in a different place in her life. She’s so excited to become a mother and is looking forward to the next chapter.”
In June, just days after Bravo confirmed they were cutting ties with Stassi, as well as her former co-stars, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni, who were also accused of making racially insensitive remarks, she and Beau confirmed her pregnancy on Instagram with a baby bump photo. A short time later, Stassi and Beau revealed they are expecting a baby girl.
Stassi Schroeder Knows Beau Clark is Going to Be a Great Dad
Ever since Stassi first shared her baby news, she has have been fairly silent on their Instagram page. However, from time to time, she has been sharing photos of her growing baby bump as fiancé Beau does the same.
“Stassi has always known that Beau would make an incredible father,” a Bravo insider revealed to Hollywood Life on September 11.
In addition to sharing images of Stassi’s pregnant belly, Beau has also been chronicling his work around their new house in the Hollywood Hills, which has included renovations to the interior and an upgrade to their patio. He’s even showed off a photo of his daughter’s crib and given his fans and followers a glimpse at the ongoing decoration of her nursery.
Amid his efforts to prepare their house for their daughter’s arrival, Beau has been extremely supportive of Stassi, making sure that she wants for nothing.
“[Beau has] been above and beyond supportive and been there by her side throughout her entire pregnancy for anything and everything she needs,” the source shared.
Stassi Schroeder Has a New Outlook on Life
The insider went on to say that when it comes to Stassi’s outlook on life, she has completely evolved as a person over the past couple of months since being fired from Vanderpump Rules.
“She really does have a new perspective on life and her priorities have completely shifted,” the insider dished.
As fans may recall, Faith Stowers went public with claims of having experienced racism during her time on the Bravo reality series in early June and noted that Stassi and Kristen had accused her of crimes she didn’t commit. In response, Stassi offered a statement on her Instagram page in which she apologized to Faith for her behavior and promised to do better in the future.
“Racially insensitive comments from my past have resurfaced. It is important that I continue to take accountability for what I have said and done, while pushing myself to do better,” she wrote. “I have grown significantly from the person I was then, and I am still filled with remorse and regret for the hurt I caused. I am grateful for the people in my life that continue to check me and push me to evolve into a more educated person.”
Stassi also addressed Faith directly.
“My emotions over something that happened between our friends outweighed my logic, and there is no excuse for that,” Stassi told her former co-star. “I did not recognize then the serious ramifications that could have transpired because of my actions.”
Continuing on, Stassi acknowledged that what she did to Faith years ago was completely out of line.
“I apologize and I do not expect forgiveness. 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,” she concluded.
Kristen Doute Shared a Public Apology to Faith Stowers
Kristen also responded to Faith’s accusations of racism in a statement shared to her own Instagram page.
“I have been taking some time to really process what I’ve been seeing, feeling and learning. And I need to address something specifically that happened a few years ago with my former [cast mate], Faith Stowers,” Kristen shared. “Although, my actions were not racially driven, I am now completely aware of how my privilege blinded me from the reality of law enforcement’s treatment of the black community, and how dangerous my actions could have been to her. It was never my intention to add to the injustice and imbalance. I’m ashamed, embarrassed, and incredibly sorry. I will do better. I have to do better.”
While Stassi and Kristen did their best to apologize for their missteps immediately after Faith came forward with her allegations, they were ultimately fired and shortly thereafter, they shared a joint statement.
“Stassi and Kristen acknowledged what they did was wrong, have apologized and been punished,” their statement, which their rep, Steve Honig, delivered to USA Today, read. “Without casting aside their actions or the impact of those actions, they want to move forward as part of the solution in ways that are productive, meaningful and sincere. Both of them recognize actions speak louder than words and that is what will guide them as they move forward.”
‘Vanderpump Rules’ Season Nine Has Not Yet Been Confirmed
In the months since Bravo fired Stassi and Kristen, the network has remained completely silent in regard to its potential ninth season of Pump Rules and because of the lack of information, many of the show’s fans and followers have grown concerned about a possible cancelation.
In late July, an insider spoke to Us Weekly about the future of the series, claiming that the renewal of the show is “less likely” than it had been prior to Stassi and Kristen’s firings.
“[Vanderpump Rules]’s chances of getting picked up are looking less likely,” the source alleged to the magazine weeks ago.
Then, in a separate statement to the outlet made by another insider, it was noted that the series was not in jeopardy of being canceled and noted that the show was simply on hold due to the ongoing restrictions that have been put into place in Los Angeles.
As fans of the series well know, SUR Restaurant, where the series has been based out of since its start in 2013, shut down in March amid the initial outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic and while it was on the verge of opening back up in July to a limited number of guests, the venue never reopened and has continued to be shut ever since.
