It's no secret that the Witches of WeHo do not approve of Kristen Doute's undefined relationship with Brian Carter. They've had plenty to say about the couple, who were ostensibly broken up but still hooking up, so far on Season 8 of Vanderpump Rules. In fact, it appears the drama has gotten so bad that it's created a wedge in Kristen Doute's friendship with former besties Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney-Schwartz.
"It’s her life, and some of the girls get so bothered by her choices, but I’m like, it doesn’t affect your life personally," Scheana reasoned. "If you’re sick of hearing her bitch about it, I understand that, then you can distance yourself, but at the end of the day, whatever makes Kristen happy makes me happy, and if Carter’s not making her happy, then you know what? She needs to make that decision on her own."
And Scheana intends to be there for Kristen as she figures it out: "You can give her advice and be like, break up with him, break up with him, but it’s sort of like, you have to kind of show up as a friend," she explained. "And I don’t think anybody’s really been doing that for her."
Scheana also has compassion for Kristen because she recognizes that being single is a new experience for her. "Kristen, I’ve known her for a decade. She’s never been single longer than she is right now," Scheana said. "So, I think just as an adult, she doesn’t really know how to be on her own. But now, as you’ll see as the season goes on, she bought her first home. I think she’s really coming into her home and being more of an independent woman and I think that’s gonna be really interesting to see because you’ve never seen that."
