Some may think Kristen Doute was busy needling a James Kennedy voodoo doll full of holes after the airing of Vanderpump Rules this week. And those people would be (nearly) correct! After witnessing James’ on-camera apology to Kristen over his supposed PG-13 “indiscretion” with Jenna (after Scheana Marie’s birthday party), Kristen then got a first-time glimpse of James’ televised interview. You know, the one in which he bragged about “boning” Jenna after all?!
Kristen admits she was initially forgiving of James because, “At the time, I didn’t really have a reason not to believe James and DAMN his story was convincing. There was a slight doubt in my mind, but I blamed myself for that because of the mistakes I had made (and lies I had told) in past relationships.” She argues, “James did his homework and knew exactly how to play me. Watching the episode back I felt naive and betrayed. To hear him compliment Jenna at the after party the way that he did, as I sat there, and then brag about ‘boning’ her while I stupidly took him back was beyond humiliating.”
This season of Vanderpump Rules is bringing in new blood, but it’s also settling old scores. “I think it’s a redeeming season. It’s a story of redemption for a lot of us,” declares Tom Schwartz. And surprisingly for Jax Taylor as well.
Jax credits his latest girlfriend Brittany Cartwright for changing his ways. “I’ve obviously dated girls who are kind of difficult and very ‘Hollywood.’ This one’s just awesome. She’s a really cool girl, she’s really laid back.”
Jax and Brittany met in Vegas where she was working. “I can’t tell the story about how we met. Or where she works, that’s even better,” hints Jax. WHY? “I’ll tell you I was with another girl on that trip.” Of course. But apparently it was meant to be!
I could watch Vanderpump Rules forever, like on a loop, one never-ending Kristen Doute messy relationship after another. Oh wait, I am! HAHA – funny how that’s working out. Kristen cheated on Tom Sandoval, blamed Tom 1 for their relationship being awful, bragged about the wondrous peen of James Kennedy, then their relationship ended up being equally awful in all the same ways, Kristen returned to her nagging, stalking, threatening, emotionally manipulative, meltdowns and… well you know what happened! James cheated! Didn’t think he had the balls. Literally.
Is that karma, or just the laws of physics. Whatever – I’m sensing a pattern here. Is that pattern Kristen?
We’re only one week into season 4 of Vanderpump Rules, and Kristen Doute is already fighting off rumors of her own making. Last week, Kristen posted a pic of her undergoing facial reconstructive surgery, captioning it: “just because you don’t remember it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen! how I spent my #pumprules premiere.”
The post made people wonder: did Kristen get into a scrap at the VPR premiere party? Did Lisa Vanderpump finally haul off and punch Kristen in the eye socket? Was Giggy involved!?!?! Alas, no. None of the above. Kristen was simply getting her face fixed from falling out of an Uber a few weeks prior. You know, like we all drunkenly do from time to time!
Remember way back when, when a former Villa Blanca waitress sued Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd? The waitress in question accused her manager of sexual harassment, then said she was forced to quit after being subjected to a hostile work environment. Now it’s the attorney who represented Lisa and Ken who is on the receiving end of a lawsuit!
As season 4 of Vanderpump Rules takes off, viewers may be wondering what fresh drama lies in store. This week I got a chance to chat with my favorite Tom, Tom Sandoval, of VPR to get a glimpse of what’s to come. Tom talked about the upcoming release of his band’s new single, T.I.P., his enduring love for costar and real-life girlfriend, Ariana Madix, and his continued frustrations with obsessed ex Kristen Doute and thirsty castmate Stassi Schroeder. Tom also shared his gratitude for the success that’s come his way due to the show, and his dreams for the future.
I just got done watching the sneak peek of your video, T.I.P. (Touch In Public). Love it! What’s happening with it – and with your band, Charles McMansion? “It’s me and Isaac Kappy – we’re like a duo. It’s a modern day Blues Brothers vibe. That song in particular is like Rick James, kinda old school Michael Jackson, a little daft punk, Pharrell. But our overall bucket would be like, that, sort of meets Foster the People and a funk-indie-pop sort of thing.”
