LISA VANDERPUMP TALKS RACISM, STUPIDITY: Lisa Vanderpump has condemned the behavior that led to the ouster of several Vanderpump Rules cast-members, but she says the people themselves are not racist. The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star told The Skinny Confidential’s Him & Her pod: “It wasn’t right what they did at all, but do I think they’re racist? 1,000 percent not.

I just think it was awful timing, and stupid and ignorant.” Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired in June for calling the cops on Faith Stowers, who is black. Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were also let go from the network after racist tweets resurfaced online.
