Further, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star shared that she’s “proud of the inclusive company that we’ve created” and she vows to “continue to embrace diversity as one of our greatest strengths.” She added that in the future, she’s looking forward to giving the public a “deeper look into the multi-faceted fabric of our company.”
In concluding her statement, she wrote, “The world needs to move forward with a kinder generation. Everybody deserves to feel safe, heard and appreciated in their communities. So much of what has transpired in the world is not right, fair or acceptable. We all have work to do to create a society we can be proud of and I hope as we venture forward, we strive to live in a world where kindness and compassion are our highest values.”
News of Vanderpump breaking her silence on the firings of Schroeder and Doute comes after Stowers also spoke out. In addition to Schroeder and Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were also fired from the show.
At the time, Caprioni told E! News in a statement, “I want to express my deepest apologies for the insensitive, ignorant, and hurtful comments I made. I am incredibly ashamed and accept full responsibility, and acknowledge that this language was as unacceptable then as it is now. Please know that I have learned and grown since then and would never use this language today. From the bottom of my heart, I am truly sorry.”
Meanwhile Boyens told E! News, “I want to sincerely apologize for what I tweeted in 2012—it was wrong on every level. It is not a representation of who I am. I am shocked I ever tweeted that—and I am disgusted and embarrassed—I am truly sorry.”
