Bravo is being hit with another lawsuit, and this one may be the most damaging one ever.

Media Take Out confirmed that powerhouse lawyers Mark Geragos and Bryan Freedman are representing Faith Stowers, a former cast member on Bravo’s popular reality TV show Vanderpump Rules.

Faith, who is Black, is claiming that Bravo launched against her, “a vicious campaign of racist harassment and retaliation.”

The suit is CRAZY.

“Stowers was recruited to the show” by Lisa Vanderpump to “add more “color to the cast.” the lawsuit recalls. “Although she had never set out to be a reality star, Stowers was excited by the opportunity and accepted the offer. She was paid a total of $5,000 for her first season.”

The $5,000 was the lowest amount paid to any Bravo-lebrity, on any show.

“Very quickly, however, Stowers realized that she was getting more than she bargained for,” the suit added. “Stowers was subjected to racism, sexual harassment, and physical assault in her first season.”

Stowers claimed after she reported the mistreatment to NBC and show producers, she was “warned in no uncertain terms to keep quiet and play nice. Driven by concern for her career and fear about how she might otherwise be portrayed on air, Stowers reluctantly did so, only to discover that she had been nominally demoted to an unpaid ‘volunteer’ without any actual change in her employment status.”

“Over time, her treatment got even worse. Many cast members embarked on an overtly racist social media harassment campaign, accusing her of having gone AWOL from the military [false], of being a thief [false], and being a career criminal wanted by the LAPD [false],” the suit read.

“NBC [ and producers], which tightly control the cast’s public statements and messaging, condoned, ratified and amplified these vicious lies, causing untold harm to Stower’s mental health and reputation. To make matters worse, NBC threatened her with ruinous legal action when she attempted to speak out.”

This is the latest in a series of lawsuits against Bravo.
