Doute was ousted last month along with co-star Stassi Schroeder after Faith Stowers resurfaced their prank of calling the police on her to report a fake crime she did not commit. In an interview with the Hollywood Raw podcast with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn, Doute revealed she learned from her lawyer that she had been fired. She never got to speak to anybody from Bravo. According to TooFab, Doute said she believes it "would have been a lot smarter" for Bravo to film the unfolding controversy. "I know this probably sounds super selfish for someone that's canceled to say they don't believe in cancel-culture," she added, but expressed her desire to be "forced to have these difficult conversations" on the series and "show the public that we are doing action." She added: "Just push people to do better, rather than saying, 'We don't like that mistake you made so therefore you're canceled, we don't want to hear from you ever again.'"
