Kristen Doute and Tom Sandoval started off season 2 of Vanderpump Rules on the rocks. Following a cheating incident in Las Vegas, Kristen lost a lot of trust in her man and on the show, fans are watching as she tries to get their relationship back on track -- all while dodging the drama circulating at SUR.
In addition to that, her relationship with her former bestie, Stassi Schroeder, seems to be strained.
"Stassi did not come over to 'style' me. She came over so that we could get ready together for our passport photos," Kristen wrote in her December 9 Bravo blog. "She gave herself a little too much credit."
But that was the least of Kristen's issues with Stassi. Her main issue had to do with her lunch date with Kristina and Katie, during which she called Kristen out for her turmoil-filled relationship.
"I was definitely upset with Stassi for attacking my relationship with Tom at lunch that day, but it wasn't an end all argument," Kristen admits. "I appreciate that she was just trying to look out for me, but I was really trying to live in the present moment with where Tom and I currently were. It was like finally he and I were back on track and happy -- I didn't want to let the rumor mill at SUR ruin that. I felt that if I wasn't concerned, my friends should just be happy for me."
With all that she had been dealing with in her relationship and trying to fix things, it's understandable that Kristen would need a break from the speculation of her friends. Even though her friends may have had Kristen's best interest at heart, their comments ended up causing Kristen even more grief.
