Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder reportedly bonded over their strained relationships with Lisa Vanderpump during the Vanderpump Rules reunion.
During an interview on AfterBuzz TV, Doute claimed she applauded her co-star and former friend for standing up to Vanderpump as Season 3 was shot.
As fans will recall, Schroeder dissed Vanderpump for only siding with those she can control. In a Brandi Glanville-like move, Schroeder insinuated Vanderpump was no longer understanding of her situation since she no longer worked at SUR Lounge.
Glanville also accused Vanderpump of being controlling on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. During Season 4, she claimed Vanderpump was the puppet master of the group, and said she convinced her to confront their co-star, Kyle Richards, with allegations of infidelity during a cast trip to Palm Springs, California.
“For the first couple of years I worked at SUR, [Lisa] didn’t even know my name… She used to call me ‘girl’ and that was when I was really good friends with Pandora,” Doute told the hosts of AfterBuzz.
“It wasn’t until right before the show that she started paying attention to me… and I don’t bow down to people who think they are holier than vow.”
As for whether or not she’s expecting an invite when it comes to Vanderpump Rules Season 3, Doute said ratings have proved the series “works when I am on.” At the same time, Doute acknowledged she’s no fan favorite.
At this point, both Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder are up in the air for Season 4. Since neither work at SUR Lounge, it wouldn’t make a lot of sense for them to be on a show, which is based on the drama of the restaurant. However, since Doute is currently dating a SUR employee, that could be enough reason for Vanderpump to keep her on the series.
Plus, Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder have been on the show since Season 1.
On the upcoming episode of Vanderpump Rules, Doute is seen leaving the wedding of Scheana Marie and Mike Shay with a mystery man. As the Inquisitr reported, her decision caused quite the ordeal with her and James Kennedy. However, according to Doute, she and the unmade man were and are just good friends.
“His name is Trevor and he is my Muay Thai trainer and friend. I had to walk off because James was getting drunk and I needed a break,” she explained. “I apologized to James at the reunion…you could tell I still had feelings and it wasn’t that I wanted to be with Tom but I wasn’t over the break up and I wasn’t over him being with Ariana.”
