When Vanderpump Rules started, Kristen Doute was at the center of the drama. Throughout the years, 92525252 cast members were added to the show, making it a very large ensemble cast. This means that a lot of stories do not make it into the actual episodes.

And where would we be without her crucial investigative skills?
