Another Vanderpump Rules relationship casualty. VPR cast member Kristen Doute, who was fired from the show in 2020, started publicly dating real estate investor Alex Menache in March of 202o. It seemed like she finally found some stability after years in a toxic relationship with Brian Carter. But after two years, Kristen is single again.
As reported by E! News, Kristen confirmed the split in her Instagram Stories. She wrote about moving out of the house they shared together for just 6 months. Kristen shared, “moving day is hard. leaving memories behind is even harder. sending anyone having a DAY like this lots of love.” She added in another Story, “bye beautiful home. we had so many awesome memories… as heavy as it is, my current mood is gratitude.”
Kristen also took the time to respond to comments about the split. One users noted that Kristen and Alex no longer follow each other on Instagram. Kristen responded, “every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” But Kristen didn’t remain vague for long. On one VPR fan page, someone commented with the hope that Alex would be “the one” for Kristen. Kristen replied, “same, but it didn’t work out. Alex is a wonderful man who I love and respect very much.”
Of course fans immediately started wondering if she was back with her ex Carter. Despite their rocky relationship, Kristen demonstrated they are on good terms by wishing him a happy birthday. A week prior to her move, Kristen shared a photo of Carter and her dog. She captioned it, “Happy birthday Carts!” But don’t expect a romantic reunion. When someone commented that she would “go back to Carter,” Kristen shot it down. She explained, “Carter and I are friends. Nothing more. Period. Everyone stop speculating.”
This isn’t the first time Kristen has shot down speculation about her relationships. Shortly after she started dating Alex, pregnancy rumors surfaced when she was photographed running errands. Kristen took to Twitter to slam the accounts that reported on it. She admonished, “YOUR headline is that I’m pregnant – which I’m not – so you’re calling me fat for not sucking in like some IG fake model when I was caught running errands during quarantine? GO TO HELL. You are what is wrong with women’s body images.”
