Tamron Hall Drags Stassi Schroeder After Their Awkward Interview
The apology tour isn't going so well...
Last week, Stassi Schroeder appeared on The Tamron Hall Show to discuss her racist behavior that got her fired from Vanderpump Rules.
A few days later an article emerged with a "source" claiming the ranch obsessed reality star felt the interview was awkward because she was "unprepared" after Tamron Hall went "rogue" and asked questions that weren't previously organized, so Tamron decided to clap back during her show on Tuesday.
The TV host addressed the article that was obviously leaked by Stassi's camp and took us behind the curtain to reveal what actually happened in the lead up to their sit-down. Tamron explained:
“The other day I was told that there was a report that Stassi felt ‘unprepared’ and that it was ‘awkward.’ Even that I had gone rogue — whatever that means. Let me just be open because I’m expecting everybody who’s participating in this show today, I want them to be open, so I have to do the same. It’s why I wanted this show to be honest with you.”
"I’m going to take you behind the scenes of TV. Now, I don’t tell people the specific questions I’m going to ask them. How they answer, that’s up to them. But the topic and everything that we discussed, Stassi knew. She knew the subject matter. She knew what I was going to ask her. Not the questions.”
Obviously Stassi and her team rehearsed a series of questions for her to answer to ensure her "comeback interview" would go well, but once Tamron interjected and started really digging deep on the issues at hand, Stassi got frazzled and couldn't answer the questions.
If she was really remorseful and willing to be educated on the issue, wouldn't she be able to have a discussion with Tamron without sticking to her list of questions? And her team later leaking the article about "how she felt about the interview" was just another strategy to try and save her reputation.
Tamron didn't stop there. She also revealed that the night before the interview, Stassi's team requested for her not to ask about her controversial comments about the #MeToo movement. In case you're not up to date, a few years back Stassi released a podcast entitled “Are we on a male witch hunt?” where she criticized women who came forward during the #MeToo movement.
Although Tamron was obviously annoyed she couldn't ask about the issue, given the fact that Stassi was five months pregnant, she decided to go on with the interview and only focus on Stassi's history of ignorant comments and actions. The host confessed:
“It hit me to my gut that I didn’t ask her. But again, I want to be honest with you. Given that she was five months pregnant, the issue of race was hard enough for her and for me and it was a lot to unpack, including that Nazi comment, so I said we were not going to go down that road but we would have this difficult conversation that we all should have to provide a better platform for our children.”
Stassi clearly thought she could mumble out an apology, take some form of accountability for her actions and move on just like she has several times in the past, but Tamron actually cared about the conversations at hand and wasn't willing to just allow Stassi to use her platform to rebuild her career.
Tamron is and always has been a fucking queen and after this subtle dragging and disastrous interview, I really don't think we need to hear from Stassi Schroeder again. She can go off, have her baby, and live in her million-dollar mansion but she fucked up her career on television and should really just find another career path at this point.
