Kristen Doute Is Branching Out into the Comedy World

Have you ever wondered how the Vanderpump Rules cast met? Well, Rachael O’Brien, host of the podcast Be Here For A While and a friend of the cast, may be responsible for introducing everyone's favorite SURvers to one another. In her own words, “Frankly, they owe the show to me!”

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

Rachael explained that she first befriended Kristen Doute. “I was Kristen's first friend in L.A. Kris and I, out of the whole group of people, were the first people to meet because we were doing a modeling job for Joe's Jeans,” Rachael told The Daily Dish podcast hosts Rachael Roberts and Megan Segura. Modeling is what later led them to Jax Taylor. “We went to another fit modeling job at the show called Magic, which is in Vegas. It’s like this convention thing where you just stand in a booth and try on jeans and Jax was across the way in another booth,” she shared. 

So what led to her breakup with Jax? And are they on good terms today?

She went on to reveal that she and Jax began dating. To find out, and to hear which other SURver couple Rachael set up, listen to the episode above.
