Kristen Doute may have a new boyfriend but the two of them aren’t in quarantine together. Instead, the Vanderpump Rules star has quarantined herself at Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s home, which is located in The Valley area of Los Angeles just a short distance away from the fixer-upper she purchased last year.
On March 15, Doute shared a photo with her fans and followers on Instagram in which she confirmed she was steering clear of the coronavirus while enjoying time inside with her co-star.
While Doute and the rest of the country may not be going about their lives as usual as concerns continue to grow over the coronavirus, the longtime reality star has been sharing plenty of posts on her Instagram Stories, including a video of herself taking the Shot Challenge after her Vanderpump Rules co-star, Dayna Kathan, did the same.
Doute also shared several posts promoting her new book, He’s Making You Crazy, which is set to be released in June and is available for preorder now.
On March 16, Bravo’s The Daily Dish confirmed that after years of back and forth with Brian Carter, Doute is finally dating someone new.
According to the report, Doute made the news official over the weekend when she spoke to Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen on Instagram Live with Cartwright.
During the live chat session, Cohen asked Doute and Cartwright if Carter was staying with them and right away, Doute said, “No!”
Doute confirmed she had split from Carter last September but has been spotted with him in the months since.
After confirming that Carter was not quarantined with her and Cartwright, Doute said that the man she is currently dating is not in the United States at the moment.
“The boy that I’m dating is not in the country at the moment, so hopefully he makes it back,” she explained.
Then, when Cohen questioned Doute about whether or not she and her mystery man are engaged, Doute said, “No, not yet.”
Doute was seen in Scheana Shay’s latest vlog kissing a guy at her surprise birthday party.
As the eighth season of Vanderpump Rules continues, fans will watch as Doute and her former besties, Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney, continue to grow further apart as the other former best friends of the show, Jax Taylor and Tom Sandoval, do the same.
As for Doute’s new man, he won’t be seen at all on season eight because they didn’t start dating until after filming was complete.
Vanderpump Rules season eight is currently airing on Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
