Pump Rules star Kristen Doute was fired during Monday’s new episode after telling her manager to “f**k off” during last week’s show.
During a heated debate with Scheana Marie, manager Diana attempted to have Doute leave the restaurant. However, instead of doing as she was told, Doute remained on SUR’s patio and proceeded to tell Diana off. After hearing what happened, Lisa Vanderpump let Doute go.
In a February 3 interview with E! News, Doute opened up about being fired on Pump Rules season three.
“I had this weird feeling and I happened to walk by the VIP room in the lounge and I saw Lisa sitting with Ken and Guillermo and Nathalie—their business partners—and my manager Diana sitting at the table and I thought to myself, ‘Oh no, this isn’t good.’ I had a feeling it was about me.”
While Doute needed a job, she wasn’t too disappointed in having to remove herself from the drama that goes down at SUR.
“My time was up. The place was really getting to me, especially having to work with Tom and Arianna, it was just eating away at me every day. I definitely think I should have quit a long time ago so it didn’t get to the place that it did. I’m glad I don’t work there anymore but I’m not proud of the fact I got fired. It’s embarrassing.”
“I do think that Lisa has a little bit of a vendetta against me. She doesn’t like me,” Doute continued. “We don’t get along. Our personalities just clash. But I have to say, I wouldn’t have any of this without her. I wouldn’t have the job, I wouldn’t have the show. So as much I’m not her biggest fan and vice-versa, I’m grateful for all the opportunities she’s given me.”
Still, Doute believes Vanderpump enjoyed firing her.
“I think Lisa took some joy in doing it. I don’t think she would have had it any other way.”
When asked if she would return to Pump Rules for a possible fourth season, Doute said, “I would. At this point, we’re three years in and everything that I’ve been through, I put my life on the line for everyone to see. I’d want to continue the journey. I don’t want to throw everything away just because I don’t work at SUR. If there’s a fourth season, I hope they’ll ask me back.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Vanderpump slammed Doute for being disrespectful as she fired her from SUR on Monday’s episode of Pump Rules.
“You do not have the right to turn around and say, ‘You go f**k yourself, you f**k.’ I wouldn’t talk to anybody like that. I wouldn’t talk to you like that, and certainly in your position working underneath management have no right to talk to her like that. The words that come out of your mouth you have to talk responsibility for, and you were damn rude to her and I’m not having it.”
Doute eventually apologized for her behavior towards Diana on Twitter.
I couldn’t be more sorry about the way I treated Diana. She walked in to an explosive argument & was just doing her job as a friend/manager.
