Kristen Doute is reportedly in talks to return to Vanderpump Rules despite her firing from the series. Fans recall that Bravo fired her for her racist behavior. This has brought up an intense debate on social media. Even though she is good friends with Ariana Madix, some wonder if she should be allowed to return. Keep on reading to learn more.
Kristen Doute in talks to return
Per Page Six, Kristen Doute is currently in talks with Bravo to return to Vanderpump Rules. She will appear in Season 10, which is currently airing on the network. She will join the cast to discuss Tom Sanoval’s cheating scandal with Raquel Leviss, which is all the fans could think about these past few days. On Tuesday, March 7, the news broke about her rumored return.
“Kristen was with Ariana [Madix] the night it happened and has been by her side ever since,” an insider told Page Six. “As someone who’s dated Tom and built a strong friendship with Ariana over the years, she has a singular perspective on the situation that producers are interested in.”
The source added that “the majority of the cast” is “in support of Kristen filming again.” As fans know, Kristen Doute dated Sandoval in the early seasons of Vanderpump Rules. The two ended their on-and-off relationship in 2014. Both of them cheated on one another, which was featured on the show. Kristen hooked up with Jax Taylor twice, while Sandoval kissed Ariana.
Another insider told People that Kristen would only be on the show to talk about his affair. The reason why this news was so explosive is that this months-long affair happened while he was in a nine-year relationship with Ariana. Kristen and Ariana have been good friends for years. While Kristen has moved on from VPR, she wants to support her best friend.
The reason behind her Bravo firing
This news has brought up an interesting debate among Pump Rules fans on social media. Some wonder if Bravo should allow Kristen Doute back despite her firing. She declared herself on “Team Ariana” on Friday. Kristen spent time with Ariana once the news broke about her split and Sandoval’s cheating.
However, Bravo fired Kristen at the height of the Black Lives Matter movement. Kristen and Stassi Schroeder were both fired from Vanderpump Rules after the network learned of their racially insensitive actions and comments about their co-star Faith Stowers. Both ladies issued a statement at the time, but it didn’t work. Fans are excited to see Kristen back, while others think she should stay off the show.
