One of the original cast members of Vanderpump Rules just got the boot. Inside sources claim that producers did not invite Kristen Doute back as a full timer next season because she didn’t bring enough drama last year.
Doute has been a fixture on the show since way back in Season 1. In the early years of the show, Doute brought plenty of drama and infamously cheated with Jax Taylor when he was dating Stassi Schroeder.
Since then, Doute has been steadily dating Brian Carter and has not been involved in much drama. Now that her life is more stable, an inside source told Radar Online that producers are planning on demoting her to a friend and bringing a fresh face onto the show. Exactly how involved Doute will be moving forward is still unknown.
Doute has not commented on the rumors surrounding her exit. She did not play a large part in the last season of Vanderpump Rules and was only present for a few episodes. The only drama she was involved in was when rumors surfaced that she slept with her ex-boyfriend James Kennedy during the trip to Mexico.
Other than that, Doute remained fairly low-key and was not a big part of the story in Season 6. With her inability to stir up drama, it is not all that surprising that Doute’s time on the reality show is at an end.
While her future on the hit reality show remains a mystery, Doute is busy working on her new fashion line. In fact, the Vanderpump Rules star has been updating fans on her clothing line with photos on Instagram and recently hooked up Katie Maloney-Schwartz and Tom Schwartz with some new apparel.
The three took part in a special photo shoot that featured Katie and Tom trying on some new digs. This includes Katie rocking a yellow “Heartbreak Hotel” t-shirt and Tom donning sunglasses and a graphic shirt. Her time on Vanderpump Rules may be headed for an end, but Doute clearly has plenty of things to keep her busy.
“All of my dreams coming true,” Doute wrote alongside the photos on social media.
Bravo has not released an official cast list for the upcoming season of Vanderpump Rules. The network has officially green lit Season 7, however, and filming is expected to begin in the coming months.
