Every dedicated Vanderpump Rules fan knows that some of the best drama happens in the alley behind SUR. Just ask Chrissy Teigen. In fact, while you can take this group and their arguments out of L.A., you can't — and we mean can't — expect them to hash it out in any place but an alleyway.
"Tom [Sandoval] and I were in an alleyway as if we were in the back of SUR," Kristen Doute recently told The Daily Dish, recalling her argument with her ex-boyfriend outside the bar in New Orleans during the group trip to Nola. "It's like PTSD or Something. Those alleyways, I don't know, it's like SUR has sort of trained us that that's where we get in brawls. So it's Lisa [Vanderpump]'s fault, I guess, that we fight in alleyways."
This particular alleyway argument may have led to some closure for the former couple, according to Kristen. "This whole Sandoval thing, it was so bizarre for me in New Orleans 'cause he said in his little interview bite it's a closed book for him. But if it was a closed book, why was he still talking badly about me to [my boyfriend] Carter? So now what three-plus years later the fact that he was trying to trash my relationship, well then it's not a closed book for you clearly," she said. "So as much as I hated that drunken, awful alleyway conversation, I think it was so necessary. [It was] like we're both done. We're both happy. Let's just stop trashing each other. Who cares?"
So, will we see Kristen getting into any future alley antics? "I need to stay out of alleyways. I think that's the lesson learned."
