VANDERPUMP Rules alum Kristen Doute claimed she did not call the police on Faith Stowers after she was fired for her behavior in June.
The 37-year-old ex Bravo star said she rang a tip line but provided no personal information – adding that “nothing happened” despite her costar’s allegations that cops were called.
After weeks of silence following the scandal last month, Kristen opened up to the Hollywood Raw podcast about her version of events.
The reality star alleged: “It wasn’t that I called the police on [Faith] or called 911 or gave her information.
“I actually called a tip line and left my name and number in which no one ever even called me back and nothing happened,” she explained.
Kristen added that she “never meant to hurt anyone” following the incident with her Black costar.
Faith claimed on her podcast that cast mates Kristen and Stassi Schroeder, 32, had racially profiled her back in 2018 after they reported her to the police for a crime she didn't commit.
The former SUR employee detailed the incident on her to Floribama Shore’s Candace Rice during an Instagram Live conversation.
She said: "There was this article where there was an African-American lady. It was a weird photo, so she looked very light-skinned and had these different, weird tattoos.
“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.”
Bravo went on to fire Stassi and Kristen from VPR – and the pair have also been dropped from various solo projects.
Hours after she was axed, the star issued a lengthy apology on Instagram.
She wrote: “I need to address something specifically that happened a few years ago with my former castmate, Faith Stowers.
“Although, my actions were not racially driven, I am now completely aware of how my privilege blinded me from the reality of law enforcement’s treatment of the black community, and how dangerous my actions would have been to her.
“It never was my intention to add to the injustice and imbalance. I’m ashamed, embarrassed, and incredibly sorry. I will do better. I have to do better,” her statement concluded.
In the same podcast interview, Kristen admitted she “drank” and “cried” following the furious backlash.
Recalling how she handled the firing, Kristen said she "wasn't doing that well.”
The TV personality explained: "I think I was just really all over the place. I'm not used to being silenced, and it was a lot to take in that people had a certain perception of me that I didn't hold myself.
“And sprinkled in there was, like, drinking and crying, to begin with, you know, if I'm going to be super honest about it.”
Kristen said that she became determined to learn from her mistakes, educate herself, consult resources and stay off of social media.
She said: "And then shortly thereafter, I just started listening because I was having conversations with a lot of my friends—and specifically, you know, to be honest, my Black friends.
“And they told me to shut up and listen. So, that's exactly what I did."
