“Vanderpump Rules” came under scrutiny this week when some of its cast was fired amid accusations of racial insensitivity. Andy Cohen has since given his take on the matter.


On Wednesday’s “Radio Andy,” Cohen, 52, addressed the recent firing of a few “Vanderpump Rules” cast members. The television personality said: “I absolutely support Bravo’s decision, I think it was the right decision.”

However, the “Watch What Happens Live” host also made it clear that he didn’t have a say in who got fired or hired on the network. On Tuesday, the network that hosts the show, Bravo, confirmed that four cast members had been fired from the reality show.

Stassi Schroeder, 31, and Kristen Doute, 37, were two of the people implicated and fired for accusations of racial insensitivity. The network made the decision after former co-star Faith Stowers made damning claims against them.


She revealed that in 2018, the co-star had falsely reported her to the police for a crime she hadn’t committed. Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni are the other two cast members who were also fired.



They were let go after their old racist comments resurfaced on social media. Schroeder and Doute apologized for their behavior two days before Bravo made its announcement.



Stowers addressed Bravo’s decision stating: “I was ready to put myself in the line of fire because I don’t know what will happen if I don’t say anything, but I’m glad I did.” She commended the network for letting Schroeder and Doute go despite them being some of the people who bring them high ratings.



The reality star added: “They [Bravo] want to be on the right side of history and I’m seeing people are finally hearing us.” On June 1, 2020, Stowers initially addressed the struggles she had while starring on the reality show.


During an Instagram Live session with Candace Rice, the star confessed: “I did a show with an all-white cast. I was the only black person on the show. It was a lot.” She revealed how these co-stars called her names and were “saying my hair was nappy” on season 6.


On a lighter note, Cohen’s son, Benjamin "Ben" Allen, 15-months-old, now has a new nanny. His old one was transferred to Cohen’s friend Anderson Cooper to help him take care of his newborn son, Wyatt Morgan.

Cooper's son was born in late April 2020, via surrogate.
