For those who might not remember, Faith looked like a repeating character on the 4th season of VPR and later on returned quickly as a visitor on season 6. During an Instagram Live with MTV star Candace Renee Rice on Tuesday, the starlet discussed why she might not stand being “the only black person” on a program with “an all-white cast.” She mentioned the fallout from her short tryst with Jax Taylor while he was dating then-girlfriend Brittany Cartwright as one of those factors:
“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. It was like they wanted to attack, attack, attack, attack, attack. ‘I was wrong and I was this and I was that,’ calling me names, saying my hair was nappy, which is weird coming out of their mouths.”
WTF?! Calling her hair “nappy” is certainly a racist microaggression. Full stop. However, as bad as that sounds, things only worsened from there as castmates Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute later on took matters into their own hands. She remembered their individual vendetta versus her:
“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.”
Explaining the short backstory behind the cops call made in 2018, Faith included:
“There was this post on Daily Mail … where there was an African American girl. It was an odd image, so she looked extremely light-skinned and had these various, strange tattoos. They showcased her, and I think this lady was robbing individuals …The lady was at big … and they called the police officers and stated it was me. This resembles, a real story. I heard this from really Stassi throughout an interview.”
“This is when I quit—like, I left the show. 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, so I decided to go over to MTV. Once I did that, I felt like they got upset with me.”
According to Reality Tea, Schroeder went over how she and Doute had actually called the cops to report Stowers in an April 2018 interview on The Bitch Bible podcast, however the episode has actually considering that been removed. At the time, Kristen likewise tweeted about the claim and appeared to recommendation Stowers’ exit to go star on Ex On The Beach and The Challenge:

Wow This is revolting habits!! While Faith herself did acknowledge the unfaithful circumstance with Jax was quite bad, did it actually require this attack on her character with the capacity for legal repercussions? Absolutely not.
Now, in regard to the program’s star and executive manufacturer, Lisa Vanderpump, Stowers declared that she was punished with less broadcast, consisting of “confessionals,” for declining to play into their troublesome concepts:
“When she initially approached me, she was extremely like … pleased about the truth that there was a black individual gon na be on the program and she resembled, you understand, I desire you to put them in their location, sort of provide this Nene Leakes sort of mindset and I was extremely great being available in, I wasn’t actually providing no one genuine mindset and providing her like that program she required from me, I seemed like.”
We can comprehend the desire to make some great TELEVISION, however requiring the one minority included on your program into overplayed and stereotyped habits isn’t an excellent appearance. The star summed things up stating:
“It was a lot. But I feel like now I’m in a way better position anyway, so it’s fine.”
