The Untold Truth Of Faith Stowers

In June 2020, Vanderpump Rules alum Faith Stowers recounted an experience where she was racially profiled by Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute in 2018. In addition to assuming that she was another black woman who appeared in security camera footage, the two reality stars accused her of drugging men and theft. Stassi seemingly bragged about the fact that she and Kristen called the police on Faith during a now-deleted episode of the Bible B**ch podcast, per Page Six. Faith went public with the story during a 2018 appearance on The Tomorrow Show with Keven Undergaro, but nothing came from it. 

However, she received a much different response when she recalled the experience in 2020. This time around, people expressed outrage in response to Faith's story. As a result, Vanderpump Rules fired Stassi and Kristen, along with two other cast members — Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens — who posted racially insensitive remarks on Twitter years before they joined the cast.

"There was this article on Daily Mail where there was an African American lady," Faith said during a talk with Floribama Shore star Candace Rice. "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 [Stassi and Kristen] called the cops and said it was me. This is like, a true story. I heard this from actually Stassi during an interview." 

She added, "It was just funny, because they thought it was me because it was a black woman with a weave. So they just assumed it would be me ..."

Faith Stowers was at the center of controversy on 'Vanderpump Rules'

When the Vanderpump Rules firings were announced, Faith Stowers was happy she spoke up, telling Page Six that she felt "vindicated," but there's more to Faith's life than this one news story. While Faith was never a full-time cast member on Vanderpump Rules, she was at the center of one of the show's most infamous storylines. During the season six premiere, she admitted to sleeping with Jax Taylor, who was dating his now-wife Brittany Cartwright, and she claimed her period was late. 

Adding to the controversy was the fact that Faith was accused of sleeping with Jax "in front of a 95-year-old woman that Stowers was taking care of," which is something she denied, per People. Additionally, Faith recorded the encounter, which allegedly included remarks that Jax made about being not being attracted to Brittany and having zero desire to marry her, per E! News.

Even though Faith only appeared in one other episode, she was the talk of the entire season in addition to being referenced in the show's next two seasons. For context, season 6 started in December 2017 and the show typically films each season the summer before the episodes air. 

Before all that, Faith worked at Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant SUR and filmed with Lala Kent and James Kennedy. She and Lala caught some heat for taking their tops off during the cast vacation in Hawaii and in LVP's pool. During that season, Faith was hooking up with Lisa's son, Max Todd, who was never a cast member, but he did go on that Hawaii trip.

Faith Stowers left Bravo behind, and it doesn't seem like she regrets it

In July 2018, following the Jax Taylor drama, Faith Stowers told People, "I definitely wanted to tell my side. I think if people got to see me for who I am, they would have a different take on who I am as a person. So that was tough to watch every episode be about me. Every episode!" After leaving Vanderpump Rules, Faith restarted her reality TV career by taking her talents to MTV. 

She was an original cast member on season one of Ex on the Beach, which premiered in 2018. And no, Jax didn't appear as one of her "exes." She told People, "I'm happy that people actually get to see who I am and get to know me." Once she joined the MTV family, she started competing on The Challenge. As of this writing, she's appeared on two seasons. 

In June 2020, Faith reflected on her transition from Bravo to MTV during an Entertainment Tonight interview. She recalled, "I was just getting over the bullying that I was getting from the Vanderpump fans with me and Brittany [Cartwright] and I was trying to move forward with my life. And then I got the call from MTV. They were so excited to have me," which sounds like a way better experience than she had on Vanderpump Rules

There's a whole side of Faith Stowers that 'Vanderpump Rules' fans never got to see

In addition to calling the police on Faith Stowers in 2018, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute called the military police, knowing that Faith is a veteran. In June 2020, Faith told Entertainment Tonight about learning that this happened while she was at the start of a new career phase with MTV. She recalled, "So I was excited for this new chapter of my life and then here I am trying to go and do that and then I get this boom in my face saying that they were trying to pretty much destroy me, especially dealing with the cops because I have kind of a fear of police enforcement because of all the things happening."

Faith shared, "They tried to have the military also arrest me or take me down because they thought I went AWOL, not knowing that I have honorable discharge papers that show that I had done my eight years of service for my country." Unfortunately, Faith's personal life was never showcased on Vanderpump Rules, but she's down to return, especially if she can show more about who she is. 

In June 2020, she told Us Weekly, "I would love to join their cast again and to be able to showcase my life to people because I know people can relate to it. It's unfortunate that I didn't get to show my military career with Vanderpump Rules and you know, my dating life."

Faith Stowers added a new full-time gig to her resume

In February 2020, Faith Stowers became a parent to a baby boy, Marcio, along with her boyfriend Marcio Marchena II, per Us Weekly. In June 2020, Faith talked about the Black Lives Matter movement and the Vanderpump Rules firings during an appearance on Us Weekly's Watch With Us podcast. 

She shared, "It just gives me hope in that that our America is moving forward in a positive direction." The veteran explained, "I think that that means more to me than anything because I have a son and I want him to grow up in a world that can be beneficial to him and positive for him."

Although Faith has experienced some tough times in the public eye, she remains hopeful about the future, in general, but more specifically for her son. At this point, the world is on pause in response to the coronavirus pandemic, which, among other things, means that reality TV production has been slowed down. But, whenever the world finds its new normal, Faith will have a very captive audience waiting on her next move.
