Kristen Doute, 37, told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that she’ll always be “an entertainer at heart,” so she truly hopes she’ll return to everyone’s TV screens one day. Even if that comes as a result of Vanderpump Rules getting cancelled. The former Bravo star, who’s promoting her new book (He’s Driving You Crazy) about her past and present relationships, told us she selfishly hopes the show ends after eight seasons so she and her former co-stars can do another TV project “together”.
“I was acting before Vanderpump Rules happened,” she explained when we asked if she’d ever return to TV, following her firing in June 2020. “I’m so grateful that Vanderpump Rules happened. I hope that they get a next season, but in my heart of hearts I [also] don’t so that we can all do something together, but yes, if it’s not that… I don’t know what genre, I don’t know what platform at this point, but I loved what we did for almost a decade and I would do it again in a heartbeat.”
Kristen, who also has a successful clothing line titled James Mae, was fired from Vanderpump Rules along with her former best friend Stassi Schroeder earlier this summer, after former cast member Faith Stowers claimed they took racist actions against her.
New cast members Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were also let go, after racist tweets from their past recirculated. “Bravo and Evolution Media confirmed today that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni will not be returning to ‘Vanderpump Rules,'” a Bravo spokesperson told HollywoodLife at the time.
Following her firing, Kristen apologized on social media, which you can see above, and she has since been spending a lot of time with her former co-stars. Most recently, she was pictured at Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright‘s baby gender reveal party.
At this time, Bravo has yet to renew Vanderpump Rules, which first premiered in 2013, for a potential ninth season.
