Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute have come under fire after their own accounts of calling the cops on a black castmate resurfaced this week.

Former Bravo player Faith Stowers called out her former SUR coworkers during an Instagram live with Floribama Shore star Candace Rice, talking about her time on the show and the incidents that followed.

Stower recalled how Schroeder and Doute called the authorities after seeing a report about an African American woman who was drugging and robbing men around LA. 

‘There was this article where there was an African-American lady. It was a weird photo, so she looked very light-skinned and had these different, weird tattoos. I guess this woman was robbing people.

‘And they called the cops and said it was me. This is like, a true story. I heard this from, actually, Stassi during an interview.’

The Next Level Basic writer was happy to brag about wrongfully accusing Stowers in 2018, telling the B**** Bible podcast how she and Kristen ‘solved a crime.’

After comparing a grainy surveillance image of the suspected criminal to Stowers, they decided they had enough evidence to go to the police.

‘We are like, we just solved a f**king crime,’ she reportedly said on the now-deleted episode, reported by People. ‘We start calling the police. The police don’t give a f***.’

Doute tweeted about the situation, all but naming Stowers as she wrote: ‘Hey tweeties, doesn’t this ex #pumprules thief look familiar?’

Kristen continued to malign her former castmate – who also appeared on MTV’s The Challenge and Ex On The Beach – saying: ‘Someone put her on mtv & gave her a platform for press. I didn’t wanna go there but I’m going there.’ 

Since Faith’s account came to light, Stassi has been dropped as a spokesperson for shaving brand Billie and vitamin startup Ritual. In addition, a planned partnership with Glamour magazine focusing on her upcoming nuptials ‘has no plans to continue at this time,’ according to Page Six.

DailyMail.com has reached out to Schroeder and Doute’s camps for comment. 

Schroeder and Doute’s antagonism towards Stowers was likely because of her affair with Jax Taylor, which was documented during season six of the show.

Taylor – whose chronic infidelity has been a VPR plot point throughout the years – cheated on now-wife Brittany Cartwright with Stowers, who was a recurring character in season four.

Talking about the dynamic during the Live session, Faith said: ‘I felt like after their friend did something that we both were involved in that he’s done like, a thousand times, they wanted to attack me instead of him.’ 

‘They wanted to attack, attack, attack, attack, attack. I was wrong, I was this, I was that, calling me names, saying my hair was nappy, which is weird coming out of their mouths.

‘And I believe it hit the ceiling for me, and made me really want to run for the hills, when Kristen and Stassi decided they were going to call the cops on me,’ she went on. 

‘I [had] left the show [at that point]. I was invited back to tell my truth, but decided it wasn’t going to do anything for me. So I ended up not coming back, I decided to go over to MTV. Once I did that, I felt like they got upset with me.’

Vanderpump has been criticized for its lack of diversity over the years. 

Since premiering in 2013 the show has featured only two black castmembers as recurring characters: Stowers and Tina McDowelle, who appeared in seasons one and two.

What a range: Vanderpump has been criticized for its lack of diversity over the years. There have only been two black castmembers as recurring characters since its premiere in 2013
