UPDATE: Following Faith Stowers‘ accusations about the Vanderpump Rules cast, some brands have stated to E! News that they’ve cut ties with Stassi Schroeder.
“Billie is ending all partnerships with anyone who isn’t supporting the fight against racism, including Stassi,” the brand said in a statement. Secret Deodorant also shared, “We find these comments and actions offensive and inexcusable. We have ended our relationship with this influencer. “
“Upon learning of these allegations, we immediately cancelled any advertising on Ms. Schroeder’s podcast. We are listening and learning, with the intent of being a part of the solution with actionable steps,” The Skrewball Family of Skewball Whiskey told E! News in a statement. “As a small mom and pop that relies on third party expertise to market our brand, we recognize it is on us to take better steps in vetting our advertisers to ensure they are aligned with our values as individuals and as a company. We are committed to being part of the solution and are taking fast action against any inequality and racism. We will no longer be advertising with Ms. Schroeder.”

As Faith Stowers put it simply, “It was a lot.”
In a recent Instagram Live, the reality star, who appeared as a recurring character on the fourth season of Vanderpump Rules and later returned briefly as a guest in the sixth season, revisited her experience as the only black character on the Bravo series.
While talking remotely with fellow MTV star Candace Renee Rice on Tuesday, the topic of Stowers’ experience with former castmate Stassi Schroeder was raised by a fan comment.
“I did a show with [an] all-white cast,” Stowers told Rice. “I was the only black person on the show.”
