Stassi Schroeder Admits She Was a 'Karen,' Discusses Cancel Culture After Being Fired from 'Vanderpump Rules'

Stassi Schroeder Admits She Was a 'Karen,' Discusses Cancel Culture After Being Fired from 'Vanderpump Rules'

Stassi Schroeder has given her first interview since being fired from the Bravo series Vanderpump Rules and she’s discussing the racial misconduct incident that caused her to be canceled.

The 32-year-old reality star and her co-star Kristen Doute both were called out by their other co-star Faith Stowers back in June, when she brought up how they both reported her to police for thinking she was a woman who was robbing places after an article was posted on a website about the crimes.

Stassi and Kristen were both fired from the show and they last their jobs and representation. In a new interview on The Tamron Hall Show, Stassi was asked about what happened and even admitted she was a “Karen” in the past.

“I do absolutely understand,” Stassi said after being asked if she understood the ramifications of her actions. “I’ve spent the last three months working with a teacher and learning about everything. And there was so much that I didn’t know. I didn’t understand that just because something wasn’t about race for me, doesn’t mean it’s not about race for the other person because I’m bringing my experience as a White privileged woman to this situation and she’s bringing her experience as a Black woman into this situation. And because it’s about race for her, it is about race. And that’s something that I’ve realized.”

“I am the reason why I’m in this situation. I think a lot of people wanted me to focus on cancel culture and whether I was a victim or not, and it’s just not how I feel at all,” she added.

Stassi, who is pregnant with her first child, doesn’t plan on returning to reality television.

“That ship has sailed,” she said. “And my life feels very different right now, I think when something like this happens and you get pregnant on top of it, you take inventory of your life and you think what is going to be the best for my future child and I think getting drunk and starting conflict and misbehaving on a reality show isn’t my journey anymore.”

Florence Pugh Honors Boyfriend Zach Braff's Close Friend Nick Cordero on His Birthday

Florence Pugh Honors Boyfriend Zach Braff's Close Friend Nick Cordero on His Birthday

Florence Pugh is honoring Nick Cordero on what would have been his 42nd birthday.

The 24-year-old Little Woman actress took to her Instagram on Thursday (September 17) to share a sweet message to the late Broadway actor for his birthday. Nick passed away in July from coronavirus complications.

“So. This amazing man is turning 42 today. Nick was the first to welcome me into this friendship group, he had this big open smile that makes you fall in love with him even if he hadn’t said anything yet,” Florence wrote. “Nick used to let me put ointments and beard balms and face masks on him after dinner when everyone else at the dinner table had politely refused.”

“He would eat ALL of my cooking. Everything. Even if it was burnt! He’d then go back for seconds, thirds, fourths.. each time mmm’ing and ah’ing with the same intensity as the first time,” Florence continued. “Nick sings like it’s as easy as breathing. His voice is like butter and if you ever had the pleasure of hearing it live you’d be so wrapped up in the song you wouldn’t have time to notice the goosebumps all over your skin.”

Florence is currently dating Zach Braff, who was a very close friends with Nick. During Nick‘s hospitalization, his wife Amanda Kloots and their son Elvis, 1, moved into Zach‘s guest house.

“My mum fell in love with him. She spent a whole dinner planted between Amanda and Nick, her gaze would jump between the two of them, almost like she was wrapped up in the middle of their love just admiring it,” Florence wrote. “My mum was so in love with him that she forgot to eat dessert.. which.. for our family, is a big f–king deal.”

Florence added: “Nick was the best cuddler. He was so big and so mighty he would wonderfully smother you and wouldn’t let go. I would find Zach and Nick cuddling on the sofa at the end of so many parties, it looked so comfortable it would be hard not to join. It’s hard to imagine someone so big and so mighty is no longer here anymore.”

“Nick had so much love. He had so much love to give it was impossible not to feel high whenever you’d leave him,” Florence ended her post. “Happy F–king Birthday darling, we shall have a mighty cheese board with all the chutneys and relishes in your honour. We’re thinking of you. ‘We love you to infinity and beyond!’”

Not long ago, Zach revealed the final text message he received from Nick before he lost consciousness. He spent over 90 days in the hospital fighting for his life.

Charlize Theron Explains Why She Hasn't Dated Anyone in Five Years

Charlize Theron Explains Why She Hasn't Dated Anyone in Five Years

Charlize Theron hasn’t been in a relationship in years and she’s opening up to Drew Barrymore about why she’s not looking for one right now.

The Oscar-winning actress chatted about her dating life during an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show, which aired on Thursday (September 17).

“It is strange for people to, kind of, wrap their heads around it,” Charlize said. “I’ve been on a few dates, but I haven’t dated anybody for over five years.”

Drew also said that she has been on a break from dating.

Charlize added, “I feel like I’m in a place in my life where you’ve got to come with a lot of game, not the kind of game that we think of, the kind of game that’s like my life is really good so you better be able to bring that and maybe better because I just won’t accept anything less. And my life with my children and with my incredible adopted family that I have around me I don’t long for that much.”

“I can honestly say this on my life, I don’t feel lonely. Once I had my children, it’s not that it replaces something or makes you less interested in something else,” Charlize said. “I’m still firing on all cylinders. I think your priorities are in a place that is of high demand because it’s a lot of work to be a parent. Part of that is at the end of the day I get in bed and I go I wouldn’t want this day to be anything different.”

Charlize was most recently linked to Sean Penn and she recently cleared up a rumor about their relationship.

Christian tapped friend and longtime muse Sarah Jessica Parker to provide footwear from the SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker line for the show.

“The collection feels romantic with touches of evening however some of our favorite pieces this season are made of a light heather gray knit for easy living – while remaining chic and elegant. Even at home, things can inspire us, and I hope this collection shows that fashion remains powerful despite the circumstances,” Christian said in a statement.
