Vanderpump Rules' Kristen Doute And Brian Carter Are Done -- For Good!
Kristen Doute and Brian Carter's toxic relationship took center stage this season on Vanderpump Rules. When viewers last left off on the two, they were on a break but things have drastically changed.
According to a statement released by the former SURver, they have called it quits for good. However, this isn't a black and white split because they are taking the Gwyneth Paltrow route of 'conscious uncoupling.'
In an Instagram post, Kristen writes: 'Relationships are messy, and it's not fair to anyone to hide from the truth for the sake of criticism. Let's start there.
I haven’t come to terms with everyone wanting a black and white answer of where Carter and I stand. I want to scream, what about the gray parts of this, the undefinable aspects of loving and caring for someone, while knowing that they aren’t your person anymore? After the therapy, the meditation, all the steps you take to pursue actual self love, how do you define the realization that you have to move on in order to truly grow? I've been called a hypocrite, a villain, for not communicating what has been going on between us because it has been just that... between us. But we both deserve this weight to be lifted, so this is our version of a conscious uncoupling.'
She went on to say that she and Carter are friends.
This comes after the last season of the Bravo hit where Kristen was confronted by her frenemies Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder about her life with Carter. They revealed that Kristen would often call them crying about how Carter is verbally abusive and doesn't contribute to the household -- financially or otherwise.
Her decision to stay with him is believed to have something to do with the fallout that has Kristen separated from the rest of the group.
Do you think the split is permanent?
