Pump Rules Alum Kristen Doute on "New Beginnings" After Move, Sharing Dogs With Carter, and If She Smoked Post-Alex Menache Split, Plus Who She's Living With

Kristen Doute is starting a new chapter after moving out of the home she once shared with ex-boyfriend Alex Menache following their split earlier this year.

In an “Ask Me Anything” session on her Instagram Story, the former Vanderpump Rules cast member addressed her move before opening up about sharing dogs with her other ex-boyfriend, Brian Carter, revealing if she returned to smoking after her breakup from Alex, and revealing who she’s living with today.

“Why’d you move?” a fan asked Kristen on July 18.

“Well, when you and your boyfriend break up, it’s typically smart to ugh, get the f-ck out and start over,” Kristen explained. “So cheers to new beginnings.”

Another fan wanted to know if the former Pump Rules cast member was still splitting custody of her two dogs with Carter.

“So the dogs always have lived with me since we broke up but he’s their number one babysitter so he does get to see them. He’s a great dog dad,” Kristen shared.

As for whether or not she managed to remain smoke-free throughout her breakup from Alex, Kristen confirmed she did, telling a curious Instagram user, “Hell yes,” as she shared a screenshot proving she hadn’t smoked in over 28 days.

When someone else wanted to know if she was living alone after her split from Alex, Kristen confirmed she has not one but two roommates: her two dogs.

“Come on, you guys know I can’t live alone. I [have] the two best roommates and two most handsome boys on the face of the planet,” she stated.

Kristen and Alex called it quits in late spring, with Kristen saying at the time that “moving day is hard” and “leaving memories behind is even harder.”

“Bye beautiful home… We had so many awesome memories… As heavy as it is, my current mood is gratitude,” she continued.

Around the same time, after wishing Carter a “Happy Birthday” on her social media page, Kristen clarified that there was nothing romantic going on between the two of them.

“Carter and I are friends. Nothing more. Period. Everyone stop speculating,” she stated.
