Kristen Doute appeared on an episode of Scheana Marie‘s podcast, Scheananigans days ago and during her chat with her [Vanderpump Rules] co-star, Doute admitted to having hesitations about bringing her new flame in front of the cameras when they start rolling for season nine in the coming months.
After confirming to her co-star that her new man is a great guy and someone who knows a lot of her friends, Doute said she’s nervous about filming herself in a new romance.
“If we get a season nine and we start filming it’s like, ‘Okay, you’re about to be thrown to the wolves,’” Doute said of what she would be forced to tell her new man.
While Doute has been refusing to refer to her mystery guy as her boyfriend, she made it clear that he would likely be appearing alongside her on the ninth season of Vanderpump Rules if they continued to date and become more serious about their relationship.
“If he and I become really serious, that is something I have to think about,” she shared, making a mention of social media backlash.
“What are the dumb trolls going to say about him or what are they going to say to him dating me?” she wondered. “I mean, he knows me but it’s a lot of pressure and it’s a lot of worry.”
According to Doute, she knows all to well that living one’s life in the spotlight isn’t always easy, which is why she’s done her best to keep her relationship with her new man to herself for the first several months of their romance.
“That’s something I’ve decided to keep under wraps for as long as I can,” Doute said of her relationship.
Continuing on, Doute told Scheana that she also worries that she will look like a serial dater if fans see her in a new relationship as soon as season nine begins.
“Is it suddenly going to be like, I jumped from one boyfriend to the next even though it’s been over a year since [Brian Carter] and I actually broke up and it’s been a good eight months since filming finished?” she asked.
Following production on Vanderpump Rules season eight, which saw a number of ups and downs between Doute and Carter, Doute took to her Instagram page to confirm they had ended their relationship after about four years of on and off dating. Since then, the former couple has remained on good terms as they continue to co-parent their two dogs.
