Peter Madrigal appeared on a recent episode of the #NoFilter With Zack Peter podcast, where the SUR Restaurant manager and longtime Vanderpump Rules cast member shared his thoughts on Alex Menache — the man Kristen Doute has been dating since splitting from former boyfriend Brian Carter last year.
After confirming that he has met Kristen’s new boyfriend “a few times,” Peter revealed that he actually spent time with Alex just days ago.
“I saw her new man at a little party that I went to this past weekend, so yeah. I met him,” he explained.
Kristen began dating Alex several months ago but took it slow until she was ready to go public with their romance months ago. Since then, the couple has been spending tons of time with one another at the home she purchased in the Valley Village neighborhood of Los Angeles last year.
Kristen and Alex have also been sharing plenty of photos of one another on their social media pages. However, when it comes to Alex potentially appearing on Vanderpump Rules, fans shouldn’t hold their breaths. After all, Kristen was fired from her full-time position on Vanderpump Rules in June amid allegations of racist behavior.
Peter then said that he was always a fan of Kristen’s former boyfriend, who had been featured in recent years on the show.
“I think Carter is great, but as long as Kristen is happy, that’s all that counts. If you’re happy in your relationship, nobody else should tell you what they think or not think, in my opinion.”
As fans of Vanderpump Rules saw during Season 8, Kristen’s co-stars and friends, including Stassi Schroeder, Katie Maloney, and Jax Taylor, were extremely critical of her relationship with Brian on the show. Ultimately, Stassi and Katie cut ties with her due to the lies she allegedly told them in regard to the nature of their relationship.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, Alex recently opened up about his girlfriend Kristen’s firing from Vanderpump Rules, telling his followers on Instagram that she had been put through the wringer in recent weeks but had been taking her life challenges “like a champ.” He also said that when it came to the Kristen he knows, he has found the former reality star to be “pure and kind” as she continues to move forward from the series with grace and strength.
“I love you. You’re the best thing,” Kristen wrote, in response to her partner’s words.
