Entertainment Where Does the 'Vanderpump Cast' Stand With Stassi After Controversy?
Axed 'Vanderpump' stars hire crisis management team
Via a new spokesperson, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute have broken their silence about their "Vanderpump Rules" firings.The women came under fire for past racist acts, which were brought to light by Faith Stowers, who appeared on seasons 4 and 6. Faith, the only black cast member during her time on the show, accused Stassi and Kristen of calling the cops on her in 2018 for a crime she didn't commit. The women initially boasted about the incident, but have since apologized.
"The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" actor Anthony Mackie called on Marvel to do better with diversity on its films and said it's "more racist" that the only film to feature a black cast, director and crew was "Black Panther."
"It really bothered me that I've done seven Marvel movies where every producer, every director, every stunt person, every costume designer, every PA, every single person has been white," Mackie said as part of Variety's Actors on Actors video segment. "But then when you do 'Black Panther,' you have a Black director, Black producer, a Black costume designer, a Black stunt choreographer. And I'm like, that's more racist than anything else.
Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark's Relationship Timeline
Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark are set to be one of the next Vanderpump Rules couples to walk down the aisle … but their nuptials will no longer play out on the Bravo series. Before introducing fans to Beau on season 7 of the Bravo series, the former SURver documented messy relationships with Jax Taylor, Frank Herlihy and Patrick Meagher on the show. Us Weekly broke the news in February 2018 that Stassi started seeing the casting agent following her split from Patrick. The news came six months after the radio host dumped the Next Level Basic author on their four-year anniversary. “Broken up with on our anniversary after I planned a trip for us to Mexico,” Stassi tweeted in August 2017. “Call me Carrie Bradshaw. @rachaelnobrien you’re coming w me now.” Three months later, the reality star opened up to Us about the unexpected backup. “Well, we’ve had an up and down relationship from the beginning, and it was kind of our pattern obviously, to break up and make up,” Stassi told Us in August 2017. “But this time was, to me, a shock. Like the real, full breakup. … Once you try twice, like really give it two really good shots, you know? You’re not supposed to be together.” Stassi’s costars Kristen Doute and Katie Maloney not only helped her get over the tumultuous split, but also introduced her to Beau. “I feel really lucky right now. I haven’t had a relationship like this,” shegushed to Us in June 2018.
He continued: "Because if you only can hire the Black people for the Black movie, are you saying they're not good enough when you have a mostly white cast?"
Mackie spoke in conversation with "Snowpiercer" star Daveed Diggs and said that, like Diggs, now that he's finally the star of his own show with the Disney+ series "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier," he can push higher ups to practice more diverse hiring.
"My big push with Marvel, with everyone, is, hire the best person for the job," he said. "Even if it means we're going to get the best two women, we're going to get the best two men. Fine. I'm cool with those numbers for the next 10 years. Because it starts to build a new generation of people who can put something on their résumé to get them other jobs. If we've got to divvy out as a percentage, divvy it out. And that's something as leading men that we can go in and push for."
Mackie made his MCU debut back in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" back in 2014.
