Kristen Doute was immediately body shamed because of her significant weight gain transformation as soon as Season 10 of Vanderpump Rules arrived on our screen. However, Kristen claims that her perception of body image has completely changed and she does not feel harmed by all the comments about the shape of her body.
Kristen Doute (born February 17, 1983) is a television personality, clothing designer, entrepreneur, actress, and author from the United States. She is best known for her role as a former main cast member on Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules. Doute grew up in Dearborn, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit, and has Lebanese and Irish ancestors.
Doute began working as a server at Lisa Vanderpump‘s restaurant SUR in West Hollywood, California, as an aspiring actress. Later, she was cast as a series regular on Bravo TV’s Vanderpump Rules, a spin-off of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The show follows Vanderpump’s employees as they work on their show business careers and become entangled in interpersonal drama.
Doute also launched James Mae, a clothing line named after her nephew and niece, in 2014. The collection includes men’s and women’s graphic tees and sweatshirts with classic and vintage rock and roll designs. Doute relaunched James Mae with business partner Magen Mattox in 2019, keeping the vintage rock aesthetic and expanding the product line.
Recently, Kristen Doute has returned to the set of Vanderpump Rule’s new season, but not everyone is pleased with her. The former reality star, who left the Bravo show under controversial circumstances in 2020, seems to be very different than she used to be due to her overweight appearance. So, many fans and followers have been curious to know more about her recent body transformation and wonder about the reason behind her weight gain appearance. Well, we are here to help!
Kristen Doute’s Weight Gain: The Cast of Vanderpump Rules Has Undergone a Significant Body Transformation!
Since the return of Kristen Doute (@kristendoute) on the set of Vanderpump Rules, the reality star was immediately attacked for being overweight, which has been very hard for her fans to accept. However, the Vanderpump Rules cast has yet not spoken openly about the reason behind her recent weight gain body transformation.
Her fans have already begun trolling her on social media, where Kristen Doute’s weight gain from Vanderpump Rules seems to be a storyline. Meanwhile, fans of Vanderpump Rules followed Kristen, who has been open about her love of Botox, for eight seasons.
In an interview about her weight gain, the reality star stated that her perception of body image has completely changed since the start of the show. Kristen Doute’s body at the beginning and end of the show was completely different, which should not be surprising or anything to be ashamed of, but unfortunately, she has been used to taking repeated nasty hits at her self-esteem and confidence by constantly fat-shaming her.
Meanwhile, being a cast member of Vanderpump Rules involves a certain obligation to create booze-fueled drama, which Kristen Doute offsets by leading a mostly holistic, fully vegetarian lifestyle. The reality star, who previously launched her vegetarian lifestyle blog Vegiholic, is now committed to teaching others her healthy cooking secrets, which she puts to the test on her cast mates.
In true Doute fashion, she has a section of her blog titled Rants where she rants about various topics. In her first post, she criticizes online bullies for shaming her and her castmates because of their weight, citing a recent Instagram post in which she joked about being pregnant — and was bombarded with negative comments.
“The more popular social media becomes and the more outlets that we have, I feel like it’s just getting worse. It’s very hurtful and I’ve had enough of it” she said, citing the Snapchat story of Playboy playmate Dani Mathers body shaming a woman in her gym locker room.
It’s a timely topic given the show’s season premiere episode, in which Doute’s ex James Kennedy fat shames her castmate, Katie Maloney (@musickillskate). She recalled the incident, saying, “It was awful. I mean, Katie’s a size 4. He’s going on and calling her overweight, it’s like what message are you sending to anyone who is a size 4 or bigger?”
