After Kristen Doute shared her relationship troubles with her boyfriend, Brian Carter, on Season 7 of Vanderpump Rules, the two decided to break up. She announced her breakup at the Season 7 reunion and then added that while they were no longer a couple, they were still living together until Kristen moved into her new home, which she purchased in April. Kristen then gave an update on their relationship in September, confirming that they are no longer together, but that she considers him "one of the most wonderful people I’ve ever known."
So given that Kristen and Carter's romantic relationship is over, has she begun dating anyone else? She told Page Six, "I’m single. I’m just single. I’m just single and alone. No, I’m just, I’m single.”
And as for how things are currently with her ex, Kristen said, "I’ve dated a little bit here and there. I’m still best friends with Carter. He’s amazing. It had nothing to do with, you know, us not loving or respecting each other. It just sometimes things don’t work. And I think that’s why it dragged out for so long and why it was so hard for both of us. But he’s one of my absolute best friends in the entire world and it’ll never change. I am ready to mingle!”
It's not clear whether Kristen will discuss Carter in her upcoming dating book, He's Making You Crazy, but according to Page Six, their relationship will be a focus on Season 8 of Vanderpump Rules. Preview what's to come, below.
