This Throwback Photo of Brittany Cartwright and Kristen Doute Is Giving Us Serious Nostalgia

The Valley cast members just blessed our timelines with an incredible throwback we didn't know we needed. 

By Cynthia Robinson

Brittany Cartwright just turned 35, and to celebrate, she had fun with friends during a night out and the next day at Jax’s Studio City — the Los Angeles sports bar she and her hubby, Jax Taylor, opened in 2023. In addition to looking forward to all the excitement to come in her life (like the Spring 2024 premiere of The Valley, more on that in a bit), Brittany also took some time to reflect on days past. 

On February 1, Brittany took to her Instagram Stories to share a photo with her The Valley castmate and fellow Vanderpump Rules alum, Kristen Doute. Needless to say, we were in love with the sweet throwback. Keep scrolling to see the adorable photo!

In Brittany's Instagram Stories, she shared an old photo with Kristen, and revealed it was taken the night the pair met. Brittany had previously spoken about the snapshot on the January 26 episode of her and Jax’s podcast series, When Reality Hits, where Kristen was a guest. 

"For everyone asking about the elevator selfie [Kristen] & I took the night we met from the podcast, here it is!" Brittany wrote over the Story.
