Kristen Doute was fired from Vanderpump Rules after being involved in a racist incident, but that hasn’t stopped her from staying out of the drama.
In an interview with Lala Kent, Kristen opened up about her many failed relationships, including Brian Carter and Tom Sandoval, what type of parent she thinks she’ll become, and why she’s wishing for the end of VPR once and for all.
Kristen also let listeners in on her steamy new relationship with her podcast host, Luke Broderick.
Kristen Doute appeared on Lala Kent’s podcast, Give Them Lala, and she didn’t hold back.
Vanderpump Rules just wrapped filming for the show’s 10th season, which Kristen will not be a part of. She was fired in 2020 alongside Stassi Schroeder after being involved in a racist incident that targeted one of their coworkers.
Longtime fans of the show will know that Kristen has had a number of failed relationships. At the beginning of the series, she was in a longterm relationship with Tom Sandoval. She later dated then-SUR newbie James Kennedy, afterwards moving on with Brian Carter, who she met on Bumble. After her time on the show, Kristen started dating Alex Menache, but they have also parted ways.
“I put all of my eggs into that f-cking basket,” Kristen said on the podcast according to Reality Blurb. “I cared about him. But in hindsight, I saw a goal and I wanted to achieve that goal and that goal was, ‘I’m getting married, I’m having a baby. I’m too old for this sh*t. I’m selling my house and moving into his house.’”
Kristen said she also quit smoking in order to prove that she was ready to get pregnant, but it didn’t solve any of their problems.
“I just kept going, ‘It’s okay. We’re gonna be okay once we get pregnant, once we get married, everything’s gonna be okay. I’m gonna be the person he wants me to be.’ And that was like a huge f*cking mistake,” she told Lala. Regardless, the former waitress said she was “grateful” that Alex ended things.
While Lala finished filming season 10 of VPR, Kristen said she probably won’t watch.
“I want to watch to support my friends that are on it, but I just… It’s FOMO,” Kristen said. “I feel like I’ll know from either [Lala] or [Katie Maloney] or even [Scheana Shay], like, ‘Oh, I should watch that episode.’ Like Scheana’s wedding. I was there, but I missed a lot of it. So I’d like to see some of the stuff that I missed. But to sit there and watch as a whole season? Hell no.”
She added that she never finished season 9 since she was “salty” about being let go from the series.
“I’m too salty. It hurts. I’m not mad about it. I’m not, it’s not all this anger anymore… [But] obviously, what I really hope is Vanderpump gets canceled, and we all have a brand new show together one day, and we go back to being one big happy family that fights,” the reality star joked.
Kristen said that she would “definitely” return to television if she had the change, and added that she sometimes feels left out because her friends all have children.
“I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s the show, the canceling, the something. I’ve suddenly become this, ‘Why am I not included?’ Oh, because I don’t have a baby?” Kristen explained.
She does want to be a parent one day, adding, “I wanna be the mom that’s like, ‘Let them fall. Let them experience it.’ But I literally feel like I’m gonna bubble wrap my entire house and just follow them around.”
It’s not all bad news for Kristen though! The SURver admitted to dating Luke Broderick, who is her co-host for the podcast Sex, Love and What Else Matters.
“Luke’s great. Luke, you know, it just sort of fell into my lap after my last breakup. We became friends at my girlfriend’s wedding. We walked down the aisle together as bridesmaids/groomsmen,” she said. “I made Luke, essentially like my handler for the weekend. I’m like, ‘You’re groomsman, and you are going to just make sure that I have my sh*t together because I kind of don’t right now.’”
