Kristen Doute was inundated with negative comments from Vanderpump Rules fans after getting papped with a fuller figure at Ariana Madix’s house. The reality show’s alum met up with Katie Maloney and Scheana Shay to give their “blindsided” friend Ariana emotional support.
Of course, we are talking about the affair between Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss. It’s inundated our lives for the past three weeks. But some viewers decided to take a break from it all to criticize Kristen’s apparent weight gain.
So, the Sex, Love, and What Else Matters podcast host once again addressed her body-shamers. Page Six reported that Kristen asked, “What gives you the right to comment like that? How were you raised?” Also addressing the “losers,” Kristen said, “Go get f–ked, get laid.”
She blamed the gain on holding “weight in places when…stressed out.” Also, Kristen recently stopped smoking and “started gaining weight” after kicking her ciggie habit.
Kristen added. “[I’m not] standing with my posture perfect. “I’m not concerned about those things because I’m concerned about walking into my friend’s house and checking on her.” Indeed, Kristen was papped wearing black leggings with a crop top. She bundled up with a gray sweater.
Fans’ immediate reaction was to assume Kristen was “pregnant.” Or just blatantly called her “fat.” Totally unacceptable. She responded by saying, “I’m so sorry I don’t have a six-pack, who f–king cares?”
Kristen noted that she cut back on workouts after her trainer moved out of state. She said, “Then I was working out with a trainer and I was really happy mentally and was physically seeing changes. I just haven’t been putting in the work lately.” Although, she stated that she should for her mental health “more than anything.”
Fair game. Kristen publicly shamed her haters by naming them on her Instagram Stories. The first one read, “This CANNOT be the outfit she’s wearing when she’s making her grand return.”
Another wrote, “Great just what nobody needed.” A chorus of other posters labeled Kristen “fat” and “horrible.” Kristen set the post to Rascals’ song “A Beautiful Morning” along with the caption, “good morning….”

Bravo producers could care less about Kristen’s appearance in light of Scandoval. She has precious insight into her ex-boyfriend Tom. Kristen also became close friends with Ariana.
“As someone who’s dated Tom and built a strong friendship with Ariana over the years, she has a singular perspective on the situation that producers are interested in,” a source previously shared.
The VPR cast was assembled to film the reaction to Tom’s affair with Raquel. The “majority of the cast” was “in support” of Kristen’s return. But she clarified that she would only film if Ariana was ok with it. As of today, Kristen revealed that she filmed one scene with Ariana.
