Kristen Doute and Ariana Madix have had some ugly moments on "Vanderpump Rules," mainly due to Kristen's past drama with Ariana's current boyfriend, Tom Sandoval, who Kristen dated years ago. However, today, the two women are quite close and during an interview with The Washington Post on June 2, Kristen said she wished fans of the Bravo TV series saw more of their reconciliation and friendship on the show while promoting her new book, "He's Making You Crazy: How to Get the Guy, Get Even, and Get Over It."

"I felt like it was really important [to write the Tom and Ariana chapter] because it was honest, but also to show that there was some redemption at the end of it," Kristen explained of her decision to include her past relationship drama with Tom and her years-long feud with Ariana in her book.

"It’s something you don’t see on the show. I feel like they didn’t really ever focus on how Ariana and I actually made up, and there was such a temperature change on 'Vanderpump Rules' when that happened," Kristen recalled.

According to Kristen, Bravo skated right past her reconciliation with Tom and Ariana, which made it even more important for her to write about the evolution of their relationships in her book.

"I kind of just wanted to fill in not only the 'Vanderpump Rules' fans, but really just the readers in general, to know it is possible. There’s light at the end of the tunnel, even if you’ve had a tumultuous breakup. If I found a way, it’s possible," she explained.

When The Washington Post asked Kristen if she was disappointed with the absence of her and Ariana's friendship on "Vanderpump Rules," Kristen confirmed she was before revealing that Ariana is one of the cast members she's closest to.

"She’s super supportive and she’s a different kind of friend to me than, let’s say, Scheana is, where Scheana and I have a very similar love language and a very similar sort of attention-needing with our men and whatnot," Kristen shared. "Ariana looks at things a little more factually, so she is someone that I go to when I need that other perspective."
