Kristen Doute has been trying to recuperate her image since she was fired from Vanderpump Rules. No one here needs a reminder that her and Stassi Schroeder were axed by Bravo for filing a false police report against Faith Stowers. But I’ll reiterate it anyway because it was awful, stupid, unnecessary, and definitely racial profiling.
Since her termination, Kristen has made various attempts to rehab her persona right her wrongs. She apologized to Faith via a DM on social media, has been posting on social to support Black Lives Matter, and released a statement with Stassi and their crisis management team. Some may say Kristen is learning, others might say her actions aren’t enough. There is now one more thing Kristen is doing to reconcile public perception.
Kristen is donating a portion of her Cameo profits to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). Practically every Bravo-lebrity is on Cameo – a platform that gives you the chance to pay your favorite D-Lister to say whatever you want. I honestly don’t know who the joke is on here – the celebrity for saying anything a fan wants to hear? Or the fan for giving these people more money?
Kristen’s Cameo bio now reads “Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules star is raising money for ACLU through Cameo.” If you click on Kristen’s profile picture, next to the bio, you can watch a video of her sharing, “hey guys it’s Kristen, I love being a part of the cameo fam. I look forward to connecting with each and every one of you while also being able to contribute.”

She concludes with, “a portion of the proceeds will go directly to ACLU. Hit me up and let’s do some good together.” If you pay Kristen for a Cameo message now you’re supporting a good cause.
Initially, Kristen was flailing in her attempts to do better. She has since been open about unpacking her unconscious bias. Plus, putting her money where her mouth is on Cameo, is better than trying to distract people with baby bump pictures.
