“It will not ‘create a lot of story that is absolutely real’ because our friends won’t speak on our behalf,” she writes.

She also shuts down his comments about she and Stassi no longer working at SUR.

“Also,” she continues, “almost no one works at SUR. Just FYI.”

“But I appreciate Andy saying we were great on the show,” she adds in parenthesis.

What Andy said about Kristen and Stassi

Andy appeared on Everything Iconic With Danny Pellegrino podcast on November 5 to dish on Vanderpump Rules Season 9.
When asked about how he thinks that show will be without OG cast members Kristen and Stassi, he reportedly thinks the show will become more authentic.
“I actually think in an odd way that’s going to create a lot of story that is absolutely real, and they’ll be able to lean into it. And frankly, Stassi and Kristen didn’t work there anymore,” Cohen says on the podcast.
“And they’re both brilliant characters on television,” he continues. “I think it will be interesting to see who’s there and who’s not and what’s really happening. I think they’ll have a better time doing that and they’ll be a lot of built stuff that’s actually happening.”

Why Kristen Doute was fired from Vanderump Rules

Kristen and Stassi were fired from Pump Rules in June after allegations of their racist behavior surfaced.

It was learned that Kristen and Stassi turned in their fellow cast member and SUR coworker Faith Stowers to the police, who were searching for a suspect for a robbery case.

Faith had not committed the crime and accused Kristen and Stassi of racially profiling her.

Kristen and Stassi have since apologized for their actions. While the apology did not earn them their jobs back, the two have bonded and rekindled their friendship over the firing.

Vanderpump Rules is currently on hiatus on Bravo.
