Money troubles ahead? While Kristen Doute has amassed an impressive net worth of $1 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, the former Bravo star is likely to see a dip in her finances after being fired from Vanderpump Rules.
On June 9, the network confirmed to Life & Style Doute was let go from the series following past racist behavior against costar Faith Stowers. At the beginning of the series in 2013, the Michigan native reportedly made $1,400 per episode. By season 8, she was making an estimated $25,000 per episode.
Due to her reality TV fame, Doute went on to partake in other business ventures. Keep reading to learn more about how she makes her money!
Doute is a published author:
In June, she published a novel titled He’s Making You Crazy: How to Get the Guy, Get Even, and Get Over It. The text deals with Doute’s romantic relationships over the years — including Vanderpump Rules’ Tom Sandoval, James Kennedy and Brian Carter. Though she never mentions any of them by name, most Vanderpump Rules fans were able to fill in the blanks.
“I was all in from day one, but for him it was a slow build,” she seemingly wrote about Tom referring to him throughout as a “Mactor” — a.k.a. model-actor.“ Any straight Mactor has girls throwing themselves at him constantly. He could have anyone, but I knew we were meant to be. I just needed to show him that. I had to make a bold move.”
Doute has a clothing line:
In 2014, she launched James Mae, a Los Angeles-based clothing line that features designs for men and women.
Doute, Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney-Schwartz launched a wine collection:
In February 2019, Doute, Schroeder who was also fired from Vanderpump Rules and Maloney-Schwartz released a pinot grigio called “Basic Witch Potion No. 1.” Later, in June, they released their second selection of wine, a rosé called “Basic Witch Potion No. 2.”
As it stands, Doute has yet to comment on the future of her other businesses following her departure from Vanderpump Rules.
