AceShowbiz - Jennie Nguyen is ready to share her side of the story after being removed from "The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City". Taking to her Instagram page, the reality TV star promised to "speak my truth."
"I will be finally speaking my truth tomorrow now that I am allowed to," she wrote on her Instagram Story Tuesday night, January 25. "I will be taking questions after! Thank you to all who supports [sic] me."
Her post arrived hours after Bravo announced that she had been fired from the show following backlash over her racially-insensitive 2020 posts on Facebook. "Bravo has ceased filming with Jennie Nguyen and she will no longer be a cast member of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City," so Bravo wrote in a statement. "We recognize we failed to take appropriate action once her offensive social media posts were brought to our attention."
Concluding the statement, the network added, "Moving forward, we will work to improve our processes to ensure we make better informed and more thoughtful casting decisions." In the caption of its Instagram post, it wrote, "Thank you for doing what is right!"
Jennie previously issued an apology on Instagram. "I want to acknowledge and apologize for my deleted Facebook posts from 2020 that resurfaced today," Jennie began her statement on January 19. "At the time, I thought I was speaking out against violence, but I have since learned how offensive and hurtful my words were."
She went on to note that it was the reason "why I deactivated that account more than a year ago and why I continue to try to learn about perspectives different from my own." The mom of three added, "I regret those posts and am sincerely sorry for the pain they caused."
