One member of the Vanderpump Rules gang won’t be returning as a full-time cast member next season, according to radar.
Kristen Doute, who has appeared on the Bravo hit since the first season in 2013, hasn’t been asked back by producers, a show insider says..
“She’s being downgraded to a ‘friend’ of the cast,” the source claimed, explaining that the 35-year-old’s stable life with low-key boyfriend of three years Brian Carter has become boring for viewers.
“She doesn’t have a lot of drama in her life these days.”
Doute barely appeared on the last season of the show, except in a few episodes about a rumor she hooked up with ex James Kennedy in Mexico.
In the early seasons, Doute was the most fiery member of the cast.
She infamously hooked up with Jax Taylor, who was dating her best friend Stassi Schroeder at the time.
However, Doute seems to have grown up — and seemingly has grown out of her reality TV persona.
