Kristen Doute Says She Fell Into A Motherly Role While Dating James Kennedy; Surprised To Find Out Carter Hooked Up With Katie Maloney

I know that Kristen Doute has been a pretty polarizing character on Vanderpump Rules, but I have to say that I’m at this point where I think Kristen is the person who always keeps it real. She doesn’t try to look better than she is, she owns up to her mistakes, and she has no issue sharing all of her weirdness- like owning and wearing multiple fake engagement rings in public.

Kristen talked about dating, her relationship with James Kennedy and how it’s weirdly not-at-all weird that her current boyfriend Brian Carter slept with Katie Maloney. Not only that, Carter apparently has other ties to the group.


Kristen stopped by Rachael O’Brien’s Be Here For A While podcast and she ended up discussing her dating life past and present. Unfortunately, that included revisiting her relationship with James. Kristen recalled, “I know, I know that. I wanted to be single for a year, that was my rule and then Bumble happened.” Ah. Whatever. It happens to the best of us.

Still, Kristen reflected, “It’s nice to get to know yourself without someone. I was not so much an independent person. I was more dependent on relationships and motherly like, ‘Let me take care of you.’?”

Kristen explained, “I feel like I was falling into these patterns with each relationship I was in where I was almost becoming more motherly, and then resentful because I wasn’t doing me.” Rachael said, “No one wants to date their mother” and Kristen couldn’t resist saying, “Unless you’re James Kennedy and you do want to have sugar mama who takes care of you.” Which is very interesting since his girlfriend is a college age beauty queen. Quite the turnaround there.

Now that James is far back in Kristen’s past, she is focused on her relationship with Carter which seems to be pretty grown up and drama free so far…. well except for its origins. Kristen thought that she finally met someone with no ties to this dysfunctional friend group, but that was not the case.

Kristen revealed, “I met Carter on Bumble. Stassi [Schroeder] was couch crashing at my house for the summer- two summers ago. I found out his name and then we start texting and Stassi realizes and goes, ‘Oh my god. That’s Brian Carter.’ And I go, ‘I don’t know who the fuck that is’ so she goes on Facebook.’ We have twenty five mutual friends when she shows me who he is. And within those mutual friends are Tom Schwartz, Jax Taylor, Stassi, and Katie. And I’m like ‘What the f**k? How do I not know this person?'” Yeah, seriously. How did she not know him?

Kristen continued, “So anyway, Stassi explains this and she goes, ‘Kristen, you know Katie slept with him.’ And Stassi and Katie at this point are not speaking by the way, this was before Palm Springs. And I’m like ‘Stassi, do I call Katie and need to make sure she’s okay with this?’ because I don’t know, this was a one night stand.” She revealed, “I texted her and she was like ‘I don’t fucking care, but out of all the guys in LA…'”

The Carter/Katie hookup was briefly mentioned on the show, but oddly enough it was never emphasized as a story line. Nevertheless, I’ll never get over Tom Schwartz saying that Carter “had his dick in her” when he was explaining who Carter is during an on-camera interview. That’s such a weird thing to say about your fiance, but it was hilarious.

Kristen revealed that Carter has even more ties to the group since he was the first person Schwartz met in California after he moved in with Kristen and Tom Sandoval. Kristen recalled, “We were the first people that Schwartz ever met because he drove from Florida, got out of his car and moved into our apartment, but his first friend outside of us was Carter and I didn’t know that. Schwartz told me. I don’t remember how they met.”

Kristen mused, “It blows my mind that no matter how many old photos I see of Carter, it does not ring a bell. Maybe it’s because I was with Sandoval. I don’t know. It is just weird.” Yes, it is. Also, it feels like that Kristen and Sandoval relationship was a lifetime ago.
