“It is important that I continue to take responsibility for what I have said and done, while striving to do better. I have grown considerably from the person I was then, and I am still filled with remorse and regret for the harm I caused,” Schroeder wrote on Saturday, June 7. The ‘Straight Up With Stassi’ podcast host has since lost a number of endorsement deals and been dropped by his PR company following the scandal.

Doute penned her own apology the same day, admitting she was “taking some time to really process” her past mistakes. “I’m ashamed, embarrassed and incredibly sorry,” she wrote via Instagram. “I will do better. I have to do better.

While Schroeder and Doute were original cast members, Boyens and Caprioni had just joined the Vanderpump Rules family this season. Earlier this year, they both came under fire for making racist comments on social media in the past — and they each apologized during the first half of the June 2 reunion episode.

“It wasn’t OK then, it’s not OK now,” Caprioni admitted, adding that he “deeply” regrets using derogatory terms. “I do my best to move forward and be the best person I can be.”
