Ariana Madix Fires Back At Kristen: ‘My Presence Is Welcome, Desired, And Required’

Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix knows that she is in the line of fire when it comes to Kristen Doute. After it was revealed that Doute had cheated on Tom Sandoval twice with Jax Taylor, Tom broke things off with her, and Madix was there to swoop in and catch him as he was dealing with his emotions. And the two have been going strong ever since.

During the bachelorette party, Ariana Madix felt that Kristen Doute was not happy to be in her presence. But Madix isn’t too concerned about what Kristen is doing. And while she was texting her boyfriend James to get some information to hurt both Ariana and Tom Sandoval, Madix didn’t seem to care. And now, she is responding to the comments that Doute wanted to throw her in the water.

According to a new Bravo report, Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix is now revealing that she isn’t too concerned with Kristen’s comments about her. As Madix explains, she is all about being positive and moving forward, not dwelling on Kristen’s lack of confidence.

“Don’t think for a moment that I didn’t notice the shade thrown my way from LAX onward. Newsflash: I’m a bridesmaid in this wedding. My presence is welcome, desired, and required. Dirty looks, weaseling me out of group conversations, and comments made under-the -breath are creepy and weird and nobody is having it,” Ariana Madix explains, pointing out that she was there to support her friend who was getting married.

And Ariana would do just about anything to ensure that Scheana had a great trip. Over the past two years, Scheana’s birthdays have been ruined thanks to drama with Tom and Doute. So, Madix wanted to make the trip super special and fulfill her duties as a bridesmaid.

“I would do just about anything to ensure that Scheana has the best bachelorette party imaginable. My idea of fun might be a little bit different, but I wanted to have fun nonetheless,” Ariana explains of her plans.

But it sounds like the wedding drama is far from over. According to the Inquisitr, Scheana’s wedding episode will have some drama if you ask Lisa Vanderpump. She got married in July, and the wedding was featured in various tabloids. But Lisa hasn’t revealed who is involved in the drama, but it sounds like Ariana Madix would not let her personal issues interfere with her best friend’s wedding.

What do you think about Ariana Madix’s cool and positive way of dealing with Kristen’s jealousy and lack of confidence?
