Reality TV star Kristen Doute has started dating again- six months after she and her boyfriend Alex Menache broke up.
The Vanderpump Rules alum shared that she and Luke Broderick, the co-host of the podcast Sex, Love, and What Else Matters are in an exclusive relationship.
Doute revealed on the December 21 episode, “Luke and I are f—king dating, you guys. and all of my friends who have listened to our podcast were like, ‘Yeah, it sounds really obvious.'”
However, Kristen Doute, 39, did admit that she “battled” herself over getting into another relationship so quickly.
She continued, “I love you so much, but just the thought of being someone’s girlfriend again just kind of threw me through a loop because I want to be a wife and I want to be a mother. I was so tired of being a girlfriend for a couple of years and then having s—t fall apart, to be honest.”
Doute, who was fired from Vanderpump Rules in 2020, also added that they are polar opposites and things between them haven’t been a walk in the park.
Moreover, the couple is in a long-distance relationship- with Kristen Doute currently living in California while her 31-year-old boyfriend Luke Broderick resides in Colorado.
Speaking of the difference in their personality, she added, “Luke loves to hunt and fish… I am an animal advocate. I’ve been a vegetarian since I was 11 years old, and that truly was the one thing that was a little difficult for me in the beginning.”
Previously, she dated Alex Menache for about half a year and broke up in June 2022. Although it is unclear why the pair spilt up after even moving in together, she did share a picture of them moving out.
“moving day is hard. leaving memories behind is even harder. sending anyone having a DAY like this lots of love,” she wrote.
Doute has also dated fellow reality stars Tom Sandoval, James Kennedy, and Brian Carter.
