Vanderpump Rules OG fans remember the moment Kristen Doute admitted to sleeping with Jax Taylor which warranted the slap heard around the world from Stassi Schroeder. The reality star wrote about what headspace she was in when she decided to hook up with her best friend’s on and off boyfriend at the time.
Kristen is joining the reality star book club with her semi-autobiographical book titled He’s Making You Crazy. It’s co-written by How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days author Michele Alexander.
Doute will discuss a surplus of drama in her book, However, she’s going to give an inside perspective as to what lead her to hook up with Jax not once — but twice.
‘But at the end of the day, this is my book and this is my voice and with my self-love, I had to say, ‘You know what, I’m not blaming him for this, I’m actually taking the heat for it. I just want to explain where my brain was at because I think a lot of women have gone through this and, you know, they have had affairs or they’ve messed up or they’ve lied about something. But there’s a reason for it. And it’s not to take the blame off of myself, but it’s just to explain where my brain was at in that moment.’
She also went on to say that she gave both Brittany Cartwright and Ariana Madix a heads up.
Doute explained to US Weekly: ‘I didn’t ask permission from anyone because essentially they’re my stories and I gave myself that right to write how I felt. But I did reach out to both Brittany and Ariana and just kind of gave them a heads up that there were going to be some things about, you know, Brittany’s husband and Ariana, her long term boyfriend. … I even let Ariana read a little bit of it in regarding the chapter that’s about Tom and Ariana. They were both like, you know, ‘Do you girl.’’
She went on to explain that readers will also find out how she and her once mortal enemy Ariana became close friends.
