Vanderpump Rules” star Kristen Doute has had a rough year, as she has been unable to admit to several affairs and been too fixated on Tom Sandoval's cheating. The truth has finally been revealed about what has happened between the servers and bartenders at SUR, but Kristen has moved on. According to a new Bravo report published on Feb. 12, “Vanderpump Rules” star Kristen Doute is now dating a new man named James.

It turns out that James is indeed a busser at SUR, meaning he clears the tables after dining guests leave the establishment. It seems like Kristen’s hookup with James was indeed a revenge move to get back at Tom. Tom had plans to start a band with the guy, and then Kristen hooked up with him in Tom’s bed. Kristen chose "the one guy that would completely turn my life upside down,” Tom said at the reunion.

James Kennedy is his full name, and he is indeed 21, works at SUR, and “models on the side when he's not pursuing his true passion, working as a DJ and music producer. He's also pretty well-traveled: he was born in London, moved to Ibiza, Spain when he was 15, and then relocated to Los Angeles to pursue his career.” It sounds like he has plenty of life experiences thus far.

And James has no problem speaking out about his love affair with Kristen."I feel like [Tom] was completely fixated on the fact he had songs that he wrote over a decade ago and expected me to basically produce them for him," he has revealed. "It was a DUO not a single act…it was about us creating something new and original, not something that sounded like a horrible '80s band." And it sounds like he is having a great time with her. I definitely will say that I'm having the time of my life with her. Fans of the show are certainly shocked. It's a good mix between positive and negative feedback. At the end of the day haters exist, but it doesn't phase me one bit."
