Faith Stowers Says Brittany Cartwright Made a Racist Remark About Her During Argument
Faith Stowers refutes former Vanderpump Rules-Costar Brittany Cartwright's refusal to comment racially on Stowers' appearance.
Earlier this month, Stowers talked about the "attacks" she was subjected to after leaving the Bravo show, claiming that a Castmate once called her hair "diaper" after her affair with Cartwright's current husband Jax Taylor.
When an Instagram user recently commented on Cartwright's account and asked if she could speak to the alleged racist statements, the 31-year-old reality star returned and said she had "nothing to do with it".
"She knows I don't have a racist bone in my body," Cartwright wrote of Stowers in a comment that has since been deleted, which was recorded on Reddit. "She hurt me a lot and never apologized. I haven't talked to her or said anything about diaper hair since the night I found out. I shouted at her and I was right to do so, like it was any other person would do if they just found out what I did. "
"If she had ever tried to apologize to me, I could have forgiven her like I did with Jax, but she never did or even showed regret at how much she hurt me," said Cartwright.

However, during her appearance on AfterBuzz TV on Thursday, Stowers said that Cartwright made the insensitive comment when she tried to apologize for the affair with Taylor, 40.
According to Stowers, she was on the phone with actress Scheana Shay on a hands-free device when she overheard Cartwright in the background. The former SUR employee said that she wanted to take the opportunity to apologize to Cartwright because "she was unable to speak to her due to the production."
"So I'm like 'Brittany, hey girl! I'm trying to apologize to you. Can we please talk?'" Said Stowers. "But she ... was still in this bad room, so she likes to swear and scream and give me names and things like that."
"I'm still trying to keep calm and communicate with her because it is still important for me to hear what she has to say," she continued. "So I try to talk to her and I can still see that she is upset. And as she screams, I heard her say," You are a diaper head! "" "
Although Cartwright appeared to be in a "fragile state" at the time, Stowers said that it still does not excuse her from commenting on my hair that I love and that I would never change because it is part of my legacy.

"She used that as an insult, which I just didn't understand, why she used that as an insult for me," said Stowers. "You can call me a ho, but don't call me a diaper-headed ho."
Stowers added that her family, who overheard the conversation, was "very offended" by the remark.
"I don't know why she contested that. It's her truth," she told AfterBuzz TV. "But I know and my family knows ... that they definitely said that."
When Cartwright denied the racist allegation on Tuesday, she also claimed she was "nothing but nice and kind" to Stowers.
"She knows that and I NEVER talked about her in public," wrote Cartwright. "It is a shame that I get drawn into it when I am finally able to continue my life."
During an Instagram live chat with Floribama Shore star Candace Rice on June 2, Stowers also remembered a time when she was subjected to the anger of Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute, saying that the two of them once had one Found tabloid articles about a black woman they were looking for theft and tried to pin the crimes on her by calling the police.
"There was this article in the Daily Mail where there was an African American woman. It was a strange photo, so she looked very light-skinned and had different strange tattoos. They showed it and I think this woman has people robbed. "Stowers remembered. "And they called the police and said it was me. It's like a real story. I actually heard it from Stassi during an interview."

In 2018, 31-year-old Schröder confirmed that he had called the police about Stowers during a appearance on the Bitch Bible Podcast. At the time, the 37-year-old Doute tweeted a link to a message about the woman in general and wrote, "Hey Tweeties, isn't this ex-thief known? Someone put her on MTV and gave her a platform for the press. I didn't want to go there, but I'm going there. "
On Sunday, both Schroeder and Doute published long statements on Instagram in which they apologized to their former co-star.
"Racially insensitive comments from my past have reappeared. It is important that I continue to take responsibility for what I have said and done as I urge myself to do better," said Schröder in her statement. "I grew significantly towards the person I was then, and I am still full of regrets and regrets for the pain I caused. I am grateful for the people in my life who continue to monitor me and myself push me to become an educated person. "

In the meantime, Doute shared her own statement on her social media. "It took me some time to really process what I saw, felt and learned. And I have to specifically address something that happened to my former Castmate Faith Stowers a few years ago," she wrote.
"Although my actions were not racially motivated, I am now fully aware of how privileged I have been from the reality of law enforcement agencies' treatment of the black community and how dangerous my actions would have been to them," said Doute, adding: "It was never my intention to increase the injustice and the imbalance. I am ashamed, ashamed and I am incredibly sorry. I will do better.
In a statement on Tuesday, Bravo confirmed that Schroeder and Doute will not be returning to Vanderpump Rules, in which they have both starred since the show's debut in 2013. The actors Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni - whose racist tweets reappeared last winter - will also not be returning.
