During a new interview, Kristen, who was axed from her full-time position in June after allegations of racism were brought against her by former cast member Faith Stowers, said she would like to see Pump Rules get canceled because it would make room for her and her ex-co-stars to continue to share their stories in a new show on another network.
“I hope that they get a next season, but in my heart of hearts I [also] don’t so that we can all do something together,” Kristen told Hollywood Life on September 29.”
According to Kristen, she enjoyed the time she spent on Pump Rules and would love to launch a new series with her castmates if a season nine doesn’t happen.
“But yes, if it’s not that… I don’t know what genre, I don’t know what platform at this point, but I loved what we did for almost a decade and I would do it again in a heartbeat,” she shared, adding that she is “so grateful that Vanderpump Rules happened.”
Earlier this month on Instagram, after a fan told her she’d be missing her on the potentially upcoming episodes, Kristen said that while she was “gone” from the Bravo reality series, she would be coming “back on another platform.”
Weeks later, Kristen addressed Bravo’s failure to renew her contract for season nine, admitting that she really struggled to accept that she would no longer be featured on the series and noting that she was doing her best to change for the better.
“I have to move forward and I have to live my life and I want to just be a better person and prove to people that what they were seeing isn’t who I am,” she revealed.
In June, following Faith’s claims of racism, Kristen offered a public apology.
“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 could have been to her,” Kristen wrote. “It was never my intention to add to the injustice and imbalance. I’m ashamed, embarrassed, and incredibly sorry.”
