Kristen Doute has found someone special. The Vanderpump Rules alum confirmed dating podcast co-host, Luke Broderick.
Just six months ago Doute had gone through a major heartbreak after she and Alex Menache broke up.
Doute has a podcast called Sex, Love, and What Else Matters with co-host Luke Broderick. She revealed the good news on the podcast and said “Luke and I are f—king dating, you guys.”
Although she revealed the news to everyone through the podcast, her friends could already tell that they were together. She said “and all of my friends who have listened to our podcast were like, ‘Yeah, it sounds really obvious.’”
The pair are clearly smitten with each other. But considering the heartbreak that she had been through, the reality star revealed that she “battled” the thought of getting into another relationship months after the previous one ended.
Doute has already confessed her love for Broderick. She went on to say “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.”
She got a bit vulnerable and said “I was so tired of being a girlfriend for a couple of years and then having s—t fall apart, to be honest.”
It is evident to all those who know her that Doute hopes this is her last relationship. She is in love with Broderick and wants to move on to the next chapter of life where things are more settled.
Broderick also agreed on the podcast that the reality star tried really hard not to fall in love with him. It was not all easy either. Doute has had a difficult couple of years. In 2020, she got fired from the Bravo franchise, and then she and her boyfriend broke up six months ago.
She and Menache had parted ways after living together for 6 months and being together for over 2 years. She had posted a picture of the home with the caption “moving day is hard. leaving memories behind is even harder. sending anyone having a DAY like this lots of love,” and also mentioned that she was full of gratitude.
In her relationship with Broderick, their dietary preferences were a hurdle. Doute explained that “Luke loves to hunt and fish… I am an animal advocate,” she said. “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.”
Furthermore, there is also distance coming in between their love. Broderick, 31, lives in Colorado while Doute, 39, resides in California.
Fans are excited to see that Doute has found someone after a difficult breakup and even harder couple of years. The two seem to be in love and are enjoying the moment rather than worrying about all the things that might not work in their favor.
Doute has given love another chance and her fans hope it is the last one and that she and Broderick end up together.
