Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute hire crisis management PR after 'Vanderpump Rules' firing
By Chelsea Hirsch - Page Six - Friday June 12 2020
Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute are seeking help from a crisis management team, Page Six has learned.
The reality stars were fired from “Vanderpump Rules” earlier this week after their former castmate Faith Stowers said they’d called the police to investigate her for a crime she did not commit. Both women apologized via Instagram to Stowers, who was the only black cast member on “Vanderpump,” but the damage had been done and Bravo gave them the ax along with Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens.
Now the women are seeking to right their wrongs with a new crisis management publicist — as their former representatives dropped them and brands began to pull out of their deals with the stars, Page Six has learned. Schroeder’s podcast also vanished from various platforms.
Their new representative, Steve Honig, told Page Six on Friday: “Stassi and Kristen acknowledged what they did was wrong, have apologized and been punished. 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.”
It is unclear what the trio’s plan will be, but fans will be watching.
