Did Faith Stowers Appear on Any Other Reality Shows?

After leaving VPR, she starred on MTV’s The Challenge and Ex on the Beach, both in 2018.

Why Did Faith Stowers Leave ‘Vanderpump Rules’?

After her feud with cast mates Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute escalated, Faith departed VPR in 2017 after appearing in 51 episodes. She claimed during an Instagram Live broadcast with Floribama Shore’s Candace Rice on June 2, 2020, that the pair called the police about her in 2018, accusing her of being a robbery suspect.

“There was this article on Daily Mail where there was an African American lady,” Faith explained. “It was a weird photo, so she looked very light-skinned and had these different, weird tattoos. They showcased her, and I guess this woman was robbing people. And they called the cops and said it was me. This is like, a true story. I heard this from actually Stassi during an interview.” Stassi and Kristen were fired on June 9, 2020, with Bravo issuing a statement that they would “not be returning to Vanderpump Rules.”

Faith later said that the incident caused her to quit the show three years earlier. “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. This is when I quit — like, I left the show,” Faith revealed in a June 2020 Instagram post.

“I was invited back to [VPR] tell my truth but decided it wasn’t going to do anything for me. So, I ended up not coming back. I decided to go over to MTV. Once I did that, I felt like they got upset with me,” she added.

“Stassi and Kristen acknowledged what they did was wrong, have apologized and been punished,” rep Steve Honig told Life & Style at the time. “Without casting aside their actions or the impact of those actions, they want to move forward as part of the solution in ways that are productive, meaningful and sincere. Both of them recognize actions speak louder than words and that is what will guide them as they move forward.”
