Is Kristen Doute Still Feuding with Tom Sandoval?
The #PumpRules star says her ex is "cordial" when Ariana Madix isn't around.
We all know that Kristen Doute and Tom Sandoval have had a tumultuous relationship throughout much of the first four seasons of Vanderpump Rules. But after everything they've been through, Tom asserted that he's "at peace" with his ex-girlfriend these days, even if they still don't seem to be on the friendliest of terms (clip above).
So does that mean it's possible that these exes could become friends once again? Though Kristen seconded Tom's emotion, saying she's "absolutely at peace" with him during a recent interview with E! News, don't expect her to ever be chummy with Tom or his current girlfriend Ariana Madix.
"I don't want to be friends with either of them," Kristen told E! News. "Ariana's just not my kind of people. But with Tom, I don't think it's appropriate for Tom and I to be friends. I think there's way too much history and too much damage has been done that I just don't see how we could be friends."
However, Kristen thinks they can all at least be more amicable toward one another when all of the SURvers get together. "But it would be nice to be cordial. And cordial is not ignoring each other in a group setting," she said. "Cordial is being polite and warm and friendly. And Tom is able to be that way when Ariana's not around."
Scheana Shay backed her friend up and said that Kristen has been at peace with Tom and Ariana "for a long time." "Kristen doesn't speak about them and hasn't for over a year now," she told E! News. "But I feel like they say they're at peace with her, but they're not because they still get so worked up when her name's brought up, and they're still so angry."
Of course, Scheana had her own experience with Tom and Ariana's anger during the Vanderpump Rules reunion as the couple had a heated confrontation with her about that text exchange with Ariana's mom. The blow-up shocked Scheana as much as many viewers at home.
"I thought Ariana and I were in such a good place. I mean, for months, her and I were talking and spending time together, and I felt like we got back to a really good place. I was sending her song lyrics and being so apologetic. I'm like, 'Wow, this feels so good.' I even borrowed her shoes for the reunion. I was talking to her until 3 a.m. the night before the reunion," Scheana said. "And then she just whips her phone out, came at me so hard, and she tried to say that she didn't plan that, but I saw when she pulled her phone out, she swiped and she was right there. So she planned that the whole time. It was so upsetting to me. We actually haven't even spoken since then."
And Scheana isn't very optimistic about getting her friendship back to where it once was with Ariana. "I don't think it's something she'll ever apologize for," she said. "I will always love her and care about her and wish her the best. I just guess we're not best friends anymore."
It looks like Tom has a bit of a beef with Stassi Schroeder during Part 3 of the Vanderpump Rules reunion airing Monday, April 4 at 9/8c. Check out a sneak peek, below.
