Original cast members Kristen, 37, and Stassi, 31, were fired alongside Max and Brett when their racially insensitive tweets were uncovered by Twitter users.
During Wednesday’s episode of the Hollywood Raw podcast with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn. The former Bravo star revealed that she learned she was fired when her lawyer called to “drop the note” and said she was “no longer going to be on the show.”
Kristen shared: “I never got to speak to anyone, which is really hard because I would have liked to have a conversation.
“In turn, I really wished that they would have talked about this publicly.”
Recalling how she handled the firing, Kristen said she “wasn’t doing that well.”

She said: “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.”

The fired cast members tweets resurfaced following accusations from African American cast member Faith Stowers.
Faith claimed on her podcast that Kristen and Stassi 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 also detailed their “attack” on her to Floribama Shore star 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.”
