Kristen Doute Brags About Happiness With James Kennedy, Proves Lisa Vanderpump Wrong?

Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute is no longer working at SUR and she wrapped up filming for Vanderpump Rules with the SUR cast because of her boyfriend, James Kennedy. The two have been going strong even though there is a big age gap and both of them are clearly insecure when it comes to their relationship. As for Kennedy, he was surprised that Doute would get violent with him and he genuinely appeared shocked and sad.

But watching the wedding episode on television may have changed something for Kristen Doute. Last week, she announced that she would be taking a social media break, but Doute was quick to return to Twitter. And maybe Monday’s dramatic episode had something to do with it. In a clip for tonight’s episode, Lisa Vanderpump offered her two cents to James Kennedy after the fight, which could have given Doute the fuel to fight back.

According to a new Bravo clip, Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute decided to share how happy she is with James over the weekend, tweeting that spending time with him is the best way to wake up and start the weekend.

Of course, after the fight with Kristen Doute, James decided to tell Lisa all about the fight, especially pointing out that he felt odd about the whole thing. He blamed it on him being drunk, but clearly he didn’t like to see Kristen walk away with another man.

James Kennedy opened up to Lisa Vanderpump about what went down with Kristen Doute at the wedding. He tells her that Kristen’s violent punch left him with bruises for a few days. When Lisa heard the news, she was shocked. Even though she has known Doute for years, she probably didn’t think that Kristen would go that low, according to the Inquisitr.

According to the Bravo, Lisa Vanderpump revealed that she felt Kristen Doute was not a great influence on him. In fact, she felt that James was much better without Kristen. But Lisa also said that she would feel insecure as well if she was dating Doute, especially since Kristen has been spending so much time talking about her ex-boyfriend, Tom Sandoval.

Maybe Kristen watched the clip of Lisa learning of their violent encounter at Scheana’s wedding and got upset when Vanderpump offered her opinion of the relationship. This weekend, Kristen just wanted to show the world how happy she and Kennedy are, despite their fighting on the show.
