After last weeks episode of Vanderpump Rules where we met new server Ariana Madix as she was transferred to SUR from Villa Blanca and we saw Tom ‘train’ Ariana to be a SUR bartender, everyone is wondering if Tom and his girlfriend Kristen Doute are still dating.
It’s still unclear whether the two have slept together–but the two definitely appear to have some chemistry–Although on the most recent episode of Vanderpump Rules (December 2nd) previews for next week seem to suggest something did indeed happen between the two and perhaps more importantly Kristen calls Ariana a “homewrecker” on her latest Bravo Blog.)
Kristen had said earlier:
“Anyone who’s ever worked in service industry knows — for lack of a better term — that most of the relationships are incestuous,” she says. “We’re with each other all of the time. These are all mine and Tom’s best friends and the fights at work follow us home. The drama never goes away.”
So did these two FINALLY call it quits in line with the wishes of their friends and coworkers?
Well it sounds like from Tom’s Bravo blog that the two ARE still dating and weathered another season of reality drama. There is also a video interview here where the two confirm they ARE still together.
He said this:
I was really embarrassed with the way Kristen acted. And, of course, because she is my girlfriend, I definitely feel the residual heat from Lisa and it always puts me in the most awkward position.
“Is” being the key word, but it appears that this relationship is currently loosely duct-taped together as Tom goes on to describe how he resents that Kristen is using him as a ‘punching bag’ and continues to bring up the cheating situation:
“I’m really frustrated with Kristen’s constant scolding. The fact that Kristen pretty much tells anyone with two ears that I cheated on her gets really obnoxious at times. It’s been over three months, and still every time Kristen has two glasses of wine she wants to started telling or reminding everyone that I cheated on her”.
“And the only time she wants to sit down and talk about our relationship is after at least a bottle of wine. Pretty much every social gathering or every time the girls get together and drink, I become a punching bag.”
Nope: status changed! Kristen recently moved out of her apartment with Tom and Tom is allegedly dating Ariana according to our source.
‘Tom and Ariana are hanging out. About an hour after the finale he started following her on Instagram…..It is official that Tom and Kristen have broken up. They are all still working at SUR and Ariana still works at Villa Blanca as well. I think after the reunion show next week, Tom and Ariana will make it official. Jax Taylor did tweet his fans about two weeks ago saying “ You will never believe who is hooking up at SUR, even I can’t believe it!” I will hopefully know more in a couple of days.’
So it looks like the servers at SUR will have to endure a lot more couples drama from these two lovebirds, but at this rate I would not hold my breath that these two will be together for season 3.
