Kristen Doute Denies Hooking Up With James Kennedy; Blames Jax Taylor & Tom Sandoval For Spreading That Rumor

I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when the Vanderpump Rules cast members watched the last episode for the first time. James Kennedy very clearly stated that he “hung out” with ex girlfriend Kristen Doute. Nevertheless, Jax Taylor, Tom Sandoval, Tom Schwartz, and Peter Madrigal were adamant that he said he “hooked up with” her. They called him out for it and spread that rumor to the rest of the cast members.

Throughout the whole episode they truly believed that they heard him correctly. I don’t know if it was the booze, the British accent, or just a confirmation bias to put the spotlight on someone else, but none of the guys were on James‘ side.

Kristen Doute

Did I miss something on last night’s Vanderpump Rules? Did James Kennedy admit to hooking up “just a little” with Kristen Doute? Even more curious – did the cameras actually miss James and Kristen drunkenly hooking up?!

What I think I observed was a drunken game of telephone. Or whatever it’s called in the iPhone era. Probably something to do with Snapchatting and then sharing Snaps that were deleted and how you thought you were sexting your boyfriend SUPER ROB when in fact you were sending a disgraced Nigerian prince $300 to get his crown out of hock and on a plane to LA to bar tend into his future at SUR. I mean this could finally be the man for Scheana Marie!

Anyway! Using delightful time lapse, the episode opens hours early with Stassi Schroeder sitting on a beach with Katie Maloney and Kristen. The sand is soft and fuzzy – just like their drink-addled memories from every day the night before.  

Instagram Roundup: Luann de Lesseps, Kenya Moore, Cameran Eubanks, Jersey Shore Cast, & More!

A lot of your favorite reality stars were all about the family time this past week on Instagram. Teen Mom star Leah Messer rooting for her daughters at cheer. Southern Charm cast member Kathryn Dennis celebrated her daughter Kensie’s 4th birthday. New York Housewife Ramona Singer hung out with her daughter Avery Singer. Luann de Lesseps saw Kinky Boots on Broadway with her kids. Tiny Harris celebrated her daughter Heiress’ birthday.

In other reality TV news, the Vanderpump Rules cast gathered to celebrate Lala Kent’s man Randall Emmett’s birthday. Wow. Things really can change in a year.

Lala Kent Says She’s Close To Randall Emmett’s K

After two years of keeping the identity of her boyfriend Randall Emmett under wraps and admitting to lying for the sake of his privacy, Lala Kent has opened up about her relationship with her man and her relationship with his two young daughters. That’s right, Lala is a kind of, sort of step-mom.

Aside from gushing over her bliss with Randall, Lala threw some shade at her former BFF and one-time lover James Kennedy and his girlfriend Raquel Leviss. She owned up to her mistakes she’s made on the show and she even gave a status update on her friendship with Scheana Marie.

Stassi Schroeder Discusses Who’s Winning & Losing During This Season Of Vanderpump Rules

Every single cast member is really going through it during the current season of Vanderpump Rules. From making out with (and doing even more than that) with people outside of their relationships to arguing about pasta, almost every cast member has done something to instigate some backlash (and meme formation) from the fandom.

That’s why it’s tough to say who is “winning” this season. In a way, this could just go to the person who’s had the least amount of screen time because it would be someone with less opportunity for internationally televised embarrassment. Then again, not getting screen time, wouldn’t qualify as a “win” to most reality stars.

Tom

The best relationship on Vanderpump Rules doesn’t involved one of the actual couples. Without a doubt, the best pair on the show is Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval. They have the most loyalty and consistency out of every duo in the cast.

Nevertheless, there has been some tension teased between Tom and Tom at some point this season, but it doesn’t actually stem from something that happened between them. Schwartz and Sandoval discussed that, the idea of Jax Taylor becoming a father, and their thoughts on Lala Kent’s man Randall Emmett.

Brittany Cartwright

I’m so tired of hearing about Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright‘s pathetic relationship. I’m so tired of it that I’m actually in agreement with Tom Sandoval on the matter: Brittany stupidly chose to stay with Jax knowing he’s a low-down, dirty scoundrel, so leave her alone to stew in her own Kentucky fried juices.

I personally think Brittany loooooves laying on that accent, thick as a beer cheese dipped chicken wing, and playing damsel in distress. Not to the guys – Jax already rescued her from a Hooters farm in ‘tucky – but to the girls on Vanderpump Rules. They see it as their responsibility to rescue Brittany. Maybe because those that can’t do a decent relationship, try to micromanage other’s disaster relationships. Or maybe they know they’re all a lost cause but sweet, innocent Brittany of the slow blinking My Little Pony eyes and Dr. Pepper flavored Bonne Belle chapstick – they can save her from the Jaxing that destroyed Stassi Schroeder and so many before (and during and after) her! 

Katie Maloney & Tom Schwartz

After a very rocky Season 5, things are going a lot better for Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz this year on Vanderpump Rules. Just like everyone else in the cast, they’ve had their own drama to deal with, but that’s utter child’s play in comparison to past seasons with drink throwing, rings on strings, and rage texting.

Even with a significant dip in the Tom and Katie drama, there are other cast members coming through with the public fights this season. We were blessed with James Kennedy and Lala Kent screaming at each other, storming out of a restaurant, and continuing the argument on the sidewalk just because Lala ate some pasta.
