Everyone grab your tiny violins, it’s time to talk about Kristen Doute. The former SURver is heading into her 8th season on Vanderpump Rules and it looks like things are getting lonely for her. As you may know, Kristen is currently estranged from on/off best friends, Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder. She has been noticeably absent from any and all of Stassi’s wedding preparations amid confirmed reports her relationships are on life support.
Kristen also broke up with her boyfriend, Brian Carter, at the end of last season. Poor Carter
never worked had a problem with maintaining income that would support paying rent. For some reason this heavily impacted both Stassi and Katie’s life and factored into their struggling friendship with Kristen. Since then, Kristen has been busy with her new home and even started writing a self-help book, encouraging women to “own their crazy”. But don’t reach for the tissues quite yet. At least one old friend is standing by Kristen’s side and even showed up for a holiday photo.
Most people celebrated Thanksgiving with their families and significant others. But, get ready for this one: Kenya Moore and her daughter Brooklyn Daly went over to Sheree Whitfield’s house. Yes, you read that correctly. They left Moore Manor for Chateau Sheree. Is this Sheree’s way of trying to weasel her way back onto Real Housewives of Atlanta? If so, I am all for it. I don’t understand why they let her go in the first place. She filmed all of those collect calls with her prison boo and she knows how to read a foe to filth. The campaign for Sheree’s comeback starts now. Or at least it does in my eyes. I just want to know where Marc Daly spent Thanksgiving.
Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer used Thanksgiving as an opportunity to show off the $300K engagement ring Scott Kluth gave her on social media.
She may not be “important enough to hate,” but is she important enough to marry? Vanderpump Rules Stassi Schroeder and fiance Beau Clark are the next ones to walk down the aisle. Which has some wondering if boss Lisa Vanderpump will be the one to officiate their wedding.
Lisa and Stassi certainly have a long history together. And Lisa does have experience, having married costars Katie Maloney-Schwartz and Tom Schwartz. But will Stassi want to copy what someone else has already done?
When Tom Schwartz isn’t in the hot seat for blacking out and kissing women who aren’t Katie Maloney, he’s usually stuck in the middle of his two best friends. It’s no secret that there is a sort of hierarchy (in the guy’s heads) among Tom 2, Tom Sandoval, and Jax Taylor. Tom 1 and Jax are often at odds over who gets to be the “number one guy” in the group. The tension between those two is definitely going to be at the forefront of Season 8 of Vanderpump Rules. January 7 cannot come fast enough!
We’re also going to see a lot of things we never thought we’d see on Pump Rules this season. First, Jax gets married – to Kentucky sweetheart Brittany Cartwright. Then Stassi Schroeder gets engaged to Beau Clark. And rumor has it we will actually see Randall Emmett, Lala Kent’s fiancé on camera. As much as things change though, they also stay the same.
It’s hard to make a trio of best friends work. Usually, someone is on the outs. And that is exactly the case with Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder, Katie Maloney-Schwartz, and Kristen Doute. Currently, Kristen is on the outs, but each member of the Witches of WeHo have all taken a turn.
Stassi was on the outs when she ditched her friends and Pump Rules to move to NYC and begin anew. She came back into the fold a short time later, after practically begging to be back in the good graces of Kristen and Katie. For awhile, Katie took a break from the group and buddied up with Scheana Marie. But no one could survive a one-sided friendship for long, so Katie came back to the group. Kristen also took a turn on the outs for sleeping with Stassi’s ex, Jax Taylor. But why is Kristen on the outs this time?

Is it possible James Kennedy has won the battle over the bottle? It’s looking that way for the Vanderpump Rules DJ. Poor James had a time last season. He suffered from
mommy multiple family issues and the wrath of Tequila Katie Maloney most of the cast. Lala Kent hated everybody but especially James. Former stalker girlfriend Kristen Doute was obsessed determined to ruin him. And as a final twist of the knife, Lisa Vanderpump caved in fired James when he drunkenly fat-shamed Katie and he lost his regular gig at SUR.
With the exception of live-in love Raquel Leviss and his dog, it seemed James had a target on his back. But why tho? If nothing else, James often provided commentary that was similar to what the viewers were thinking. Yes, James had a relationship with alcohol, but to my recollection, no one in the Pump Rules cast could pass a morality test. After an explosive reunion, where James almost came to blows with Jax Taylor, it seems he has turned a corner. James has been working on repairing shattered friendships and staying sober. Our
second favorite Brit showed up at BravoCon and talked about his time on the wagon.
Is it January yet? I cannot wait for the return of Vanderpump Rules. Season 8 is definitely going to make up for the lackluster Season 7. The first trailer looked great, the new people seem dramatic, and I am so pumped (pun intended).
The fans at BravoCon were blessed with an additional Season 8 supertease and I can tell you with confidence that Season 8 is going to be nothing short of amazing.
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.
