Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute shared a cryptic image about change just before filming the Season 8 finale. The reality TV star has been feuding with several of her Bravo co-stars.
Filming for Season 8 of Vanderpump Rules has wrapped and Doute's relationships with some of the other cast members aren't in a good place. She's been feuding with co-stars Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney. Fans knew something was wrong when Doute was noticeably absent from Schroeder's engagement party with fiancé Beau Clark, and she was a no-show at Maloney and co-star Tom Schwartz's Las Vegas wedding earlier this year. And recently, Schroeder and Maloney were the only Vanderpump Rules cast members to not show at Doute's event for her T-shirt line, James Mae. According to reports, the three women got into a blowout fight while filming the show during a party for a rosé they collaborated on together, Witches of WeHo Potion No. 2 Basic Witch Rosé.
It's the end of the season and it doesn't sound like things have gotten any better between Doute and her friends. When filming the Season 8 finale, the entire cast - including Doute, Schroeder, Maloney, Schwartz, Scheana Shay, Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, Lala Kent, James Kennedy, Ariana Madix, and Tom Sandoval - held a party at Tom Tom, the restaurant partly owned by Schwartz and Sandoval, who are partners with SUR owner and former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump. The event was held to celebrate the hotspot's 1-year anniversary. Doute documented the night on her Instagram story (via: Us Weekly), sharing her "finale prep," which included a cryptic message about change, presumably directed at Maloney and Schroeder.
Along with photos and videos of the finale party, Doute shared a meme of a caterpillar and a butterfly. The caterpillar says, "You've changed," and the butterfly replied, "We're supposed to." While she didn't directly call out any of her cast members, fans assumed she was referring to the current drama between her and her friends. Schroeder's mom, Dayna, confirmed the women were fighting when responding to fans on Instagram, but sounded hopeful that they could work it out. She referred to it as the "circle of life" and said she feels like they'll come back together stronger than ever.
Vanderpump Rules viewers will have to wait and see if any drama went down in the final episode of Season 8 - or if the co-stars actually managed to work it out. It sounds like, regardless of what happens, the series reunion next year is going to be an interesting one.
