Finally some good news about this shitshow.
Following the firings of Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni from Vanderpump Rules back in June for their past racist behavior, not even the existing cast members knew if the show would ever return, however, sources are now saying that if the show does come back the cast will definitely include a tonne of diversity.
According to Hollywood Life, the producers are considering potentially casting former Bachelor star, Jasmine Goode, on the show whether it returns for a ninth season or if they make an entirely different spinoff show. The "insider" told the outlet:
“Vanderpump Rules is looking at casting new people, though they don’t know if this would be for a completely new show like a spin-off, or it would be another season of Vanderpump Rules. They want diversity given everything that happened and they’re heavily looking at casting Jasmine Goode who people know from The Bachelor franchise."
This show is set in West Hollywood of all places, so it's about time they get some diversity up in this bitch. So far, the only cast members who haven't been cis straight white people were Bille Lee, who was a transgender woman, and Faith Stowers, who was the only black cast member on the show to date, and we all know how both those situations ended.
In addition to Jasmine potentially joining, the producers are said to be "looking to cast several people" for any potential new seasons.
Along with being a former reality star, Jasmine apparently also works at SUR (lol) and is friends with Raquel Leviss and Scheana Shay among other cast members on the show. If Bravo didn't add a black person, or any person with some kind of diversity to this show after the scandal that went down earlier this year then they would be more stupid than DJ James Kennedy's girlfriend. The source revealed:
“[Jasmine’s] been working at SUR before and after lock down. She is good friends with Raquel and several other cast members and employees and she’s good for TV. It would be really natural and organic having her join the show, so it makes sense. The network would really like to figure out a way to carry on with the show, so they’re trying to do this. They’d be bringing in a lot of new faces to give it a fresh look. Lisa really wants the show to carry on as well."
In case you're unfamiliar with Jasmine's work, just like I am, she appeared on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor and has gone on to star on Bachelor In Paradise and Ex On The Beach, so it's fair to say she knows her way around reality television. Jasmine was also an associate producer on the lifestyle television series This Is LA and a professional NBA dancer (glorified cheerleader) for the Golden States Warriors.
If Jasmine has done the rounds on reality television and even produced a TV show, why the fuck is she working at SUR? Surely this girl doesn't need to serve goats cheese balls for a shitty tip. Either she really just needs the money, or this was a plan to get her on Vanderpump Rules but make her entry to the group seem "authentic" by working at the restaurant.
