In the five seasons that we've been a fly on the wall to the inner workings of SUR, we've long been under the impression that Kristen Doute isn't exactly Lisa Vanderpump's favorite former employee. But now that it's been a minute since the Vanderpump Rules boss let Kristen go from her Sexy Unique Restaurant, have they been able to leave their past drama behind and build a better bond?
Kristen told one Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen caller that she would never work at SUR again, but her update on her relationship with her onetime boss certainly has us intrigued. "My relationship with Lisa, I think it's always gonna kind of be what it is," Kristen shared. "I have gained a high level of respect for her as far as what she does, especially now with the whole Vanderpump pet foundation, which is opening, I think, in the next week. Luckily, I'm friends with [Lisa's daughter] Pandora, so I can weasel my way in to assist her and help her with that."
We saw Kristen and another one of Lisa's oft-embattled former SURvers, Stassi Schroeder, sing their praises for their onetime boss' Vanderpump Dogs Foundation event earlier this season of Vanderpump Rules. But Lisa still couldn't resist getting in a bit of a dig at Kristen amid those rumors that she hooked up with Brittany Cartwright. Well, at least no one was yelling. We're going to file this one under "Baby Steps."
