Kristen Doute Says She Still Views Stassi Schroeder And Katie Maloney-Schwartz As “Family” Despite Falling Out On Vanderpump Rules

When the trailer dropped for Season 8 of Vanderpump Rules last week, it was no surprise to see Kristen Doute on the outs with former best friends Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney-Schwartz.

After all, when reports surfaced that Kristen wasn’t present at Stassi‘s engagement party over the summer, the latter’s mother confirmed that the trio had once again fallen out during filming. In a pair of new interviews, Kristen finally broke her silence on the rift and where she stands with her erstwhile BFFs.

Jax Taylor Dishes On Planning Bachelor Party For Ex Stassi Schroeder’s Fiance Beau Clark

Some viewers cannot understand how the Vanderpump Rules cast friendships work. Most of them are friends with their exes. Many of them are best friends with their former enemies. Overall, there are just a lot of relationships that buck conventional wisdom. And this is why the show is so interesting to watch.

It feels like a whole lifetime ago when Jax Taylor ripped off his white, chunky sweater to fight for a reconciliation with Stassi Schroeder. I will never forget that era of television. It was truly classic. Nevertheless, so much has changed since then. Jax and Brittany Cartwright got married in Kentucky castle back in June. Beau Clark proposed to Stassi in a cemetery soon after. And, as the fans know, they’re all friends. Stassi was even a bridesmaid in Jax and Brittany’s wedding. Sure, it makes sense now. However, it seemed like such a long shot back in the early seasons to think about Stassi being a bridesmaid in Jax’s wedding.

It’s weddings and engagements galore on Vanderpump Rules. The newest season will feature the Kentucky fried sham wedding of Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor. Viewers will be treated to a Disney princess themed wedding in a castle, where we get to hear Brittany say “I’m making the biggest mistake of my life just to be on TV” “I do” in between guzzling shots of tequila and beer cheese. Can’t wait.

I’m not sure if we’ll see Randall Emmett’s proposal to Lala Kent, but I hope that we don’t. I don’t have the stomach to hear Lala say, “Yes, daddy,” after Randall pops the question. Barf. Watching Beau Clark propose to Stassi Schroeder in a cemetery is more my speed. I’ll happily watch Stassi’s wedding as well, it will be anything but boring and it will be in Europe. But will Stassi decide to have her wedding filmed for viewers?

Stassi Schroeder Is Most Nervous For Vanderpump Rules Ex Jax Taylor To Read Her Book:

Stassi Schroeder may be basic, but she’s never been afraid of causing a stir.

The Vanderpump Rules star stopped by E!’s Daily Pop this week to dish about her book, Next Level Basic: The Definitive Basic Bitch Handbook, and how it might be received by her castmates and new husband-to-be Beau Clark.

Jax Taylor Kristen Doute

Even though fans haven’t seen a single frame of footage from Vanderpump Rules Season 8, the devoted viewers have followed the drama on social media. It seemed like Kristen Doute, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, and Scheana Marie unfollowed Jax Taylor on Instagram.

However, Kristen revealed that he actually blocked her. And, if that is true, he presumably blocked the others as well…. even though they were all just members of the wedding party for his June nuptials to Brittany Cartwright. How awkward for Brittany, the self-proclaimed peacemaker.

Stassi Schroeder Summer House

The Witches of WeHo fans who were hoping that Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark’s engagement news would bring her and Kristen Doute back together will have to keep on hoping. As of this moment, it seems like Stassi and Kristen are still on the outs.

Meanwhile, Stassi is moving forward with her wedding plans. She recently went wedding dress shopping with her mom Dayna Schroeder, Brittany Cartwright, Katie Maloney, and even Katie’s mom Teri.

Remember when Vanderpump Rules used to be about friends getting drunk and sleeping with one another? Now that most of the cast have significant others, legally or otherwise, the conflicts have taken a different turn. Have we seen the last of Jax Taylor and his promiscuous ways? Is Kristen Doute no longer stalking her ex-boyfriends? Has  Katie Maloney put down the tequila bottle forever? With all of the “adulting” going on, you have to wonder if the show has lost it’s edge. Sure, next season we will get fancy houses and more weddings than we asked for, but do we really want that from  Pump Rules?

At any rate, you might be aware the friends are feuding again. Stassi Schroeder stopped looking at her engagement ring long enough to admit this season’s drama is “killing her”. She’s not talking to Kristen anymore, basically shunning her to Scheana Marie Island. Bille Lee  has left the scene entirely, though no one really cares her storylines only revolved around being unliked. Last week we found out Kristen, Tom Sandoval, and Ariana Madix’s new face unfollowed Jax on social media. Now we might have the reason behind the blowout. In an interesting departure from the norm, this argument involves a servant of God. Kind of. And on the fifth day, the Lord said, give them petty!

Stassi Schroeder & Beau Clark

Everyone has to have priorities in life, right? Priorities can be an imaginary guideline one follows to stay on track. An invisible set of rules that provide structure and keeps a person goal-oriented. Stassi Schroeder has priorities too, you guys. The Vanderpump Rules veteran has never shied away from her quest to be fabulous. Why, Stassi even has her own national holiday. The social media maven is always posting style inspo in an effort to keep all of us better dressed. Her Outfit Of The Day posts have a rather large following.

Another one of Stassi’s priorities is her upcoming wedding to Beau Clark. Stassi and Beau have been a couple since 2018. Together they have ridden the rails of Stassi’s ever-changing personalities peaks and valleys. And you know what, Stassi deserves a decent dude. Mainly because she previously hooked up with assholes men who never held her in high regard. With that, you might assume Stassi’s main focus is planning for her big day. Finding that dress and deciding on a perfect location. Now she finally has the man, the ring, and the title of fiance. But what Stassi really wants takes about 9 months to receive.
