Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute is getting major support from her boyfriend, Alex Menache, following her firing from the Bravo reality show.
In a new post to Instagram, Alex shared a photo of Kristen sticking out her tongue while he gave her a kiss on the cheek. He also offered supportive words to his girlfriend as he described her as a kind person who has dealt with her recent setbacks gracefully. Kristen’s new man also vowed that he will always be her fan.
“This woman has been put thru the ringer these last few weeks and has taken it like a champ,” Alex captioned the pic. “Anyone that knows you knows your heart is pure and kind. She has dealt with it with grace and strength and is putting in the work behind the scenes. I honor you [Kristen Doute] and will always be your #1 big idiot fan!”
Kristen responded to Alex’s supportive post.
“I love you. You’re the best thing.”
“Right back atcha brotha,” Alex wrote.
Other fans were happy to see that Kristen has a strong supporter in Alex.
“Strong woman needs a strong man behind her,” one fan wrote.
“Kristen has needed someone to support her and be her #1 fan,” another wrote, adding that those of who have watched her over the years know that she has “ALWAYS fought for equal treatment of all!”
Kristen has been dating Alex for several months following a roller coaster on-and-off relationship with her ex, Brian Carter, that fans saw play out on Vanderpump Rules. The former reality star detailed all of her past relationships in her new book He’s Making You Crazy.
Kristen previously told Us Weekly that she laid her past out on the table when she got together with Alex, who was a longtime friend to her before they started dating. She explained that she took her time with Alex and told him who she was and all that she has been through before they got serious in their relationship.
Alex has been by Kristen’s side since a racism scandal shook up Vanderpump Rules in early June. The day after she was fired from the Bravo reality show, Kristen was photographed looking somber as she got into a white Jaguar with Alex after walking her dogs. The former Bravo star has kept a low profile since her very public firing.
Kristen and veteran Vanderpump Rules cast member Stassi Schroeder were fired after their alleged racist actions against former co-star, Faith Stowers, resurfaced. They have both vowed to do better in the future. Their rep, Steve Honig, previously told The Inquisitr that the two women want to “move forward as part of the solution in ways that are productive, meaningful and sincere.”
