Professional Life

Doute started to work in the restaurant SUR belonging to Lisa Vanderpump. The restaurant was something that could help her achieve her dream of being an actress. There, Doute was cast as a series regular for Vanderpump Rules, a spin-off of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, where Lisa Vanderpump first became recognized. She remained a regular for several seasons, so the show explored her show business ambitions and interpersonal relationships.

In 2020, she was not renewed as a regular for the show. This came after her co-star Faith Stowers claimed that Doute and another co-star, Stassi Schroeder, had filed a false police report against Stowers. Another explanation for her exit was, reportedly, that some insensitive comments had emerged online.

In addition to her roles, Doute released her first book in 2019. It was titled He’s Making You Crazy and involved a collaboration with Michele Alexander.

In 2014, Doute launched a clothing line called James Mae, combining the names of her nephew and her niece. The line was directed at men and women, featuring rock and roll-style designs. It was relaunched in 2019.

In 2019, Doute, alongside Stassi Schroeder and Katie Maloney-Schwartz, co-stars in Vanderpump Rules, launched a pinot grigio wine called Basic Witch Potion No. 1. It was followed by another 2019 release, Basic Witch Potion No.2. Both were made with Nocking Point Wines, belonging to Stephen Amell, an actor.

In 2010, she was in a short film titled The Loneliness of the Long Distance Dreamer. In 2011, she was in Behind Your Eyes. In addition, Doute appeared in 4 episodes of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as herself. In 2012, she was in 23 minutes to Sunrise and appeared in Blood on Canvas the next year.

In 2015, Doute was in L.A. Femme Fatale(s). She was on Watch What Happens: Live for fourteen episodes. Finally, 2016 saw a return to short films with Donnie Baker’s World.

In 2017, she appeared in Summer House in a single episode.

In 2017, she was a guest on Hollywood Medium, alongside Stassi Schroeder, Johnny Weir, and Nancy Grace. In 2018, she appeared in an episode of the LadyGang. In 2019, she was in Ex-Housewife.


Doute is, reportedly, on the non-admittance list at the restaurants belonging to Lisa Vanderpump.

She got the nickname “Crazy Kristen” for her actions on the show.

The cast change seems to have had a negative impact on her public perception too.

Her first book was co-written with the author of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, which became a movie.
