Looks like Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute is officially leaving the drama of Tom Sandoval and James Kennedy behind her. Doute and her boyfriend, Brian Carter, have decided to take the next step and live together. The couple has already signed a lease and is ready to make the big move.
While Doute and Carter haven’t been dating that long, the two have been very serious about each other since about “the end of August” Doute tells E! News. They first met through the dating app Bumble and hit it off right away. It wasn’t until her accident that she really knew Carter was the one for her.
The reality star explained, “He was here taking care of me, the entire month before my surgery and then the month after,” she says. “After that, his lease was up and it was decision-making time. Instead of signing a new lease, he started staying with me.” When her lease was up, the couple wanted a fresh start together in a brand new place.
The first accessory in their brand new place? The cutest dog in the world, Gibson Nicks. The black and brown Yorkshire Terrier will make the cutest third roommate.
This seems to just be the start of their long love story. Doute has nothing but wonderful things to say about her new boyfriend. “The best thing about him is that he’s just very honest and communicative,” gushes the Bravo TV star. “Our communication skills are spot-on. It works. It just does. When we met, we just sort of knew on the first sight. My friends love him, his friends love me. It just works.”
So does this mean we’ll be seeing more of Carter on the show? “He doesn’t have a choice!” says Doute. “He lives with me now.”
Congratulations to the couple, and please include Gibson in all future Instagram posts!
